711-8OR:
13/8

Showing excellent form so far over fences, with three wins and two placed efforts already. Stays this far and landed Grade 3 novice over 2m½f at Roscommon last time. Should be right in there pitching again.

Useful chaser, has won around here before, behind Ornua the last twice, including 3¾L second at Roscommon in Grade 3 novice over 2m½f latest. Gets 3lb from that rival now.

511-1OR: 132

Has won his last three starts, twice over fences before 1m5f soft-ground Ayr handicap score on the Flat last week. Champion jockey booked, though surely has something to find with top pair on the racecard.

410-6OR: BFC
6/1

Grade 3-winning juvenile hurdler last term at Fairyhouse (2m, soft), pulled up in Fred Winter at Cheltenham before going well again at Fairyhouse in April. Would have made winning start over fences at Gowran Park 11 days ago bar final fence fall.

Betting

Forecast

Ornua (13/8), Cadmium (15/8), Winter Escape (11/4), Cubomania (6/1), Mitchouka (6/1), Classic Theatre (12/1)

Verdict

ORNUA won in this grade last time out at Clonmel and this longer trip poses no major concerns. He does have to concede 3lb to the runner-up Cadmium in this rematch but should prove up to it. Classic Theatre has ground to make up on both, so Winter Escape might prove more likely to trouble the top pair. Cubomania is in excellent heart, though this tougher than the chases he has been wining while Mitchouka would have made a winning chase debut recently only for crashing out at the final fence. The second of Gordon Elliott's runners in this field, he'll have compensation on his mind.
  1. Ornua
  2. Cadmium
