Silver Start5(ex 6)

5/2

Rewarded for recent consistency when winning at Downpatrick (2m2½f, soft) five days ago, carries a penalty for that success but booking of Conor Orr means he still on good terms and looks to go well again.

4/1

Scored a maiden hurdle win over 2m here in May, well held in all starts since but worth a try over this longer trip and wouldn't run out place claims.

7/1

Best performances for some time in a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle over 2m in August when close second, pulled up since on soft ground at Listowel, goes up in journey here. Tongue tie added.

25/1

Winner of yielding to soft ground Listowel handicap last month over 2m, bookended by pair of runner-up finishes on the Flat. Mark in this sphere gone up 7lb, out in trip and should remain competitive.

7/4

Winless in seven attempts over jumps, with little to get excited about on form. May need some more relief from the assessor before becoming a betting proposition.

410-11OR: 105
9/1

Two starts over hurdles for this trainer have yielded a fall at Cork and a Tramore performance characterised by poor jumping, both in maidens. Need to see improve jumping before supporting.

Forecast

Bay Hill (7/4), Silver Star (5/2), Conron (4/1), Billy's Angel (7/1), Make It Hurrah (9/1), Thomas O'Malley (25/1)

Verdict

SILVER STAR had the measure of his rivals at Downpatrick five days ago and while he concedes a penalty for that win, Conor Orr's claim could prove very useful in helping him double up. Bay Hill has been in good form on the Flat either side of a hurdles success at Listowel last month and should go well again. Going up in distance, Conron might be best of the remainder.
