410-12OR:
25/1

Sent off at a big price on debut at Gowran Park over 2m last month. Disputed third approaching two out before weakening after the last, eventually dropping to fifth of 10. Open to improvement.

410-12OR:

Has appeared over-whelmed in a couple of career starts last month. Hard to make a case for until showing a hint of ability.

Well held on debut in a mistake-laden 2m½f Ballinrobe maiden hurdle in September when beaten 28L. Looks up against it here.

11/8

Only got as far as the first as the 11/10f on debut at Ballinrobe in September when unseating after a blunder. Likely to be well prepped on return to action.

410-12OR:

Gelding by Intello out of a Silver Hawk mare. Winner over 1m1f and a fine second of 10 over 1m2f when based in France. Worth noting any market move.

Nothing of note in a couple of dispiriting displays over a month ago well beaten on both occasions. Vast improvement needed to figure.

410-12OR:

Five race maiden over hurdles but put in an encouraging display at Gowran Park over 2m on good ground last month. Needs to improve once again but not ruled out.

410-12OR:
100/1

Well beaten and no impression in a couple of dismal efforts at Listowel and Punchestown recently. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

410-12OR:

Regressive 54-rated Flat handicapper. Yard two from 23 with their hurdlers this term so any market move should be monitored.

410-12OR:
50/1

Modest 58-rated handicapper on the Flat, but can be expected to improve on maiden hurdle debut at Down Royal in August, given the most recent form of the yard. Worth a market check.

410-12OR:
12/1

Useful 66-rated handicapper on the Flat over the summer but has generally been disappointing in his first two hurdle starts, well held on each occasion including a 54L defeat at Down Royal on Saturday when badly hampered. Not to be taken lightly.

410-12OR:

Difficult to make a case for following a couple of dour maiden hurdle spins since August when weakening some way out on each occasion. Others preferred.

410-5OR:

Produced an eye-catching and promising debut performance on hurdling debut in a Punchestown maiden last month on first start for the yard. Enters calculations here.

410-5OR:

Last of 13 in the Group 1 Irish 1,000 guineas earlier in the year and largely well beaten on the Flat since. Watching brief on hurdling debut.

410-12OR:

First Reserve: Encouraging second of 15 beaten 1¾L on debut in September on the Flat and may have been on the wrong side at Gowran Park last month. Worth a market check if making the line-up.

Third Reserve: Filly by Minashki out of a Silvano mare. Market likely to be the best guide to chances if lining up.

Forecast

Flat To The Max (11/8), Dawn Hoofer (5/2), Got Trumped (6/1), Humaniste (12/1), Viscount Wilson (12/1), Shes Gold (16/1), Irish Minister (25/1), It's Paddys Day (25/1), Coral Blue (25/1), Reformed Man (25/1), Uluru Park (33/1), Colour Me In (33/1), Union Gap (50/1), William of Wykeham (50/1), Easkey Lad (50/1), Pak Army (66/1), Cailin Rua (66/1), Dalluna (100/1), Kingdom Story (100/1)

Verdict

DAWN HOOFER, produced an eye-catching and promising debut performance on hurdling debut in a Punchestown maiden last month when running the likable Smiling Eliza to 6L. The Paul Nolan-trained filly can see of the challenge of Flat To The Max who appears to be the biggest threat here. It's Paddys Day and the Gordon Elliott-trained Viscount Wilson can battle for the remaining place in the opener.
