511-12OR:
10/3

Winner of a Punchestown bumper over 18-months ago but largely well held in a couple of hurdles around the turn of the year. A little disappointing on the Flat since May and possibly market the best guide here on timber return.

511-12OR:
9/10

Presenting gelding who cost €78,000 as a three-year-old. Won a Down Royal bumper in May and likely to be a warm order here on hurdling debut.

711-4OR:
33/1

Well beaten in a couple of spring point-to-point starts before three below-par efforts in bumpers recently. Hard to place any faith in.

611-4OR:
50/1

Eventually got his head in front in point-to-point field, but has run poorly on all four starts under Rules. Well below par form looks set to continue.

711-4OR:
5/2

Generally well beaten - despite last finishing position - in a couple of dismal maiden hurdle efforts last month. Form doesn't warrant support here.

610-11OR:
100/1

Generally well held in a number of point-to-point starts since April before never nearer 97L defeat on maiden hurdle debut at Listowel in September. Others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Moratorium (9/10), Kilchreest Moon (5/2), Los Alamos (10/3), An Fearchan (33/1), Captain Leo (50/1), Currig's Girl (100/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained MORATORIUM should prove a little too strong for a weak looking field here, building on his win in a Down Royal bumper in May. The J P McManus-owned Los Alamos can prove to be the biggest danger while the Barry Murphy-trained Kilchreest Moon can improve on his first two hurdle starts last month and finishing in the frame once again.
