511-12OR: D
6/4

Grade 3 hurdles winner at Limerick (2m, heavy) in December but could make no impact in valuable handicaps at the spring festivals. Quickly put to fences, and claims for all his best form has come on testing ground.

511-12OR: D
10/1

Won a weak novice hurdle at Kilbeggan last month, and ran at least as well when fifth of 16 to Try Again on handicap debut at Navan last time. No easy task on chase debut based on hurdles rating,

911-12OR: 118D
33/1

Best recent effort over hurdles when fourth of 10 to Ingleby Mackenzie at Tramore in August, but he's run poorly since, and make limited appeal back over fences (0-8 in this sphere).

911-12OR: D
25/1

A five-time winner earlier in his career on Flat/over hurdles, but struggling for form at present, and this belated switch to fences (on 59th career start) looks a bit of a gamble.

611-12OR: D
4/5

Won a decent handicap at Leopardstown's Christmas meeting and better than result on subsequent outing there in Grade 1 company. Type to make a better chaser, and sure to be well schooled.

Betting

Forecast

Trainwreck (4/5), Duca De Thaix (6/4), Us And Them (11/4), Kildorrery (10/1), My Manekineko (25/1), Mr Picotee (33/1)

Verdict

This has the look of a match between exciting prospects TRAINWRECK and Us And Them, and the former is preferred on the basis that he's likely to be fully clued up on chase debut. Us And Them beat the selection over hurdles here last season, so will not be an easy opponent to brush aside. Duca de Thaix is clear pick of the others.
