14:35 Tramore Thu 18 October 2018
Clearly regressing veteran well beaten on his two appearances this term finishing some 190L adrift of the winners.
Has not looked like troubling the judge in five handicap hurdles since March and below-par form appears set to continue here.
Steady performances for new connections without getting her head in front just yet, but well down the field on last run at Listowel last month. Place claims.
Got the win she richly deserved when landing a Tramore handicap hurdle over 2m getting off the mark for connections at the 20th time of asking over timber. Something clearly amiss latest and worth another chance here.
Course winner that has won over this trip. 12 runs since last win in 2017. Well held over fences recently and others make more appeal.
Ready winner of a Killarney handicap hurdle in July off an 11lb lower mark. Beaten since but a leading player in this company.
One from 21 over hurdles but is back on a winning mark here. Any market move should be monitored.
Just 2-27 over hurdles, but has made the frame on eight further occasions. Out of form recently but has conditions to suit here and could go well at a price.
Came back from a 126-day absence to land a Downpatrick maiden hurdle on return to action last month getting off the mark for connections at the seventh attempt. Another bold show looks likely.
Slight improvement on last handicap start at Gowran Park earlier this month but appears opposable on overall form.
Defied age and an unseat when landing a Downpatrick 2m7½f handicap chase earlier this month. Reverts to hurdling here where he may find one or two quicker.
