8/1

One from 15 over hurdles who last appearance over timber was when finishing ninth of 20 in a Punchestown handicap hurdle 12-months ago off an 8lb higher mark. Not getting any younger and could struggle here.

Promising second of six in a Sligo handicap hurdle when last seen in July off a 2lb lower mark. Not ruled out but needs to improve here.

Hints of promise latest at Leopardstown and Navan recently but has been largely disappointing in a number of defeats since February.

Well held in three maiden hurdle efforts since August. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Well beaten in a number of starts over the summer appearing to struggle over a variety of trips on the Flat recently and over hurdles.

Winner of a 2m3f Downpatrick handicap hurdle in August off a 3lb lower mark. Beaten since but likely to go well here in this company.

411-5OR: 92
4/1

Running well in defeat in a number of hurdle spins of late before being typically well fended off on the AW at Dundalk last month. Promising second of 15 at Gowran Park recently and has the form to make a bold bid here.

38-race veteran who is without a win in five hurdle starts and that record is unlikely to change here.

Beaten wide-margins in three starts in maiden hurdles at Kilbeggan and last month at Ballinrobe so far and looks one to avoid for now.

Well beaten and no impression in six handicap hurdle spins and is hard to fancy on latest evidence at Ballinrobe last month.

Supported when not having the best of luck in running in a Thurles handicap hurdle but was well behind at Clonmel when last seen in December. Will probably need the run on return to action.

Career best run came at Clonmel in September finishing 3L adrift of the winner, Rain In Spain on good to yielding ground. Capable of a big run but not consistent enough to be investing in.

15-race maiden including eight defeats over hurdles but plenty to like about his latest run at Clonmel last month. Worth a market check.

Betting

Forecast

Arctic Sofia (4/1), Hernandoshideaway (9/2), Jessamine (5/1), Lleyton (8/1), Here For The Craic (8/1), Still Alive (8/1), Musical Ava (9/1), Hitchcock (12/1), Mr Moondance (14/1), Auction Reminder (16/1), Reddot Dancer (33/1), Mctaggart (40/1), Rathnaleen Swift (50/1)

Verdict

Running well in defeat in the earlier part of the season, ARCTIC SOFIA was a promising second of 15 at Gowran Park recently and has the form to make a bold bid here with possibly the biggest dangers coming from Hernandoshideaway, the second last time out, Mr Moondance and bottom weight Still Alive who may be on a workable mark following his nice run.
