310-8OR:
25/1

Has shown fair form at up to 1½m on the Flat, but hasn't progressed since sent handicapping in that sphere, and still a maiden. Hurdles debut.

Beaten a long way in a junior bumper at Huntingdon recently, and makes little appeal now switched to hurdles, for all he may do better in time.

310-8OR:
33/1

Best effort in three Flat runs when seventh in a 1½m maiden at Tipperary in August. Dam related to winning hurdlers, so may do better now switching codes.

Ex-French gelding. Ran poorly on final Flat outing at Galway and took a heavy fall after being hampered at the first flight on hurdles bow. Quite well fancied there, but may need his confidence restoring.

Cost €48,000 as a two-year-old, but only €2,000 earlier this year. Jumped badly and soon trailing on hurdles debut at Listowel last month, which doesn't augur well.

Just a poor maiden on the Flat, but showed more switched to hurdles at Gowran recently, keeping on into third. Needs to show that doesn't flatter him.

Well beaten in four Flat starts, including from basement mark on handicap bow at Killarney in July. No appeal.

310-8OR:

Regressive form on the Flat, but offered more on hurdles bow when fourth of 10 to Chief Justice in juvenile at Gowran (neck behind Let It Go Papa). Possibly flattered by his proximity in a slowly-run race, and hood he sported there is missing now.

Had three starts at 6f-1m in Meydan early this year for Satish Seemar, beating just a solitary rival. Not an obvious type for hurdles.

Flat winner at Navan in June, and has garnered plenty of experience over hurdles since, winning at Down Royal in August, and improving when second on handicap bow at Perth last time. Sets the standard.

Fair maiden on the Flat in France for Eoghan O'Neill, joining current yard cheaply after a rare below-par effort in June. Not without hope given light weight, and good jockey booked.

Progressive in handicaps this summer for Jim Bolger, winning four times, including Apprentice Derby at the Curragh. Disappointed on final start, but should make a hurdler, and hood fitted on debut for new yard now.

Offered little on sole Flat outing at Cork earlier this month, and makes very little appeal switched to hurdles with a tongue tie added.

Poor form on the Flat and raced too keenly to when last to finish in juvenile hurdle won by Chief Justice at Gowran recently.

310-1OR:

Has won twice on the Flat, but latest effort in that sphere was poor, and he jumped out to his left when seventh of 9 finishers behind Chief Justice at Gowran on hurdles bow.

Betting

Forecast

Smiling Eliza (8/11), Elysian Plains (9/4), Dawn Hoofer (3/1), Our Legend (10/1), Far Reach (10/1), Let It Go Papa (12/1), Bint Chattleya (22/1), Ashqar (25/1), Rince Deireanach (28/1), Endearing'son (33/1), Dalluna (33/1), Nancy D'Alton (66/1), Mooborak (66/1), Uncle Noble (66/1), Loosen Up (66/1), Kingdom Story (100/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these contested the race won by Chief Justice at Gowran earlier this month, and first-flight casualty Elysian Plains makes more appeal that any of the finishers. He should go well, but the concession of weight to stablemate SMILING ELIZA won't be easy. Dawn Hoofer is a prolific Fla winner, so looks most interesting of the newcomers.
