Gelding by Fastnet Rock out of a Kahyasi mare. Attempted to make running on hurdles/stable bow at Fairyhouse (2m, good) last month but faded and eventually beaten 45L in sixth of 13. Plenty more needed.

Shantou filly that disappointed in a couple of point-to-points before promising second in a bumper at Down Royal in May (2m, good) on rules bow. Changed hands since and needs a betting check now.

Makes belated racecourse bow at five-years-old, not unfancied in a point-to-point at Borris House in March but unable to sustain effort and pulled up. Market to reveal more.

6/1

Point-to-point and a Fairyhouse bumper winner, well-fancied (no shock given connections) on hurdling bow at Galway (2m½f, yielding) recently but finished remote fourth, seemingly in need of the fitness.

511-12OR:

Flemensfirth gelding whose dam was lightly-raced on Flat. Market may prove the most informative guide on racecourse bow.

511-12OR:

Yeats gelding. Half-brother to fair hurdler/fairly useful chaser Much Wants More. Yard in good form (won this last year) and potentially will have a say on debut.

511-12OR:
50/1

Kalanisi gelding and a half-brother to the yards dual winner Darkest Flyer. Well held in both starts so far, including debut in 2m Fairyhouse soft-ground maiden hurdle in April. Needs to have sharpened up over the summer.

Thurles bumper winner on heavy ground last December, far from disgraced in the Champion Bumper (ninth) at Cheltenham in March. Returns for hurdling bow and one to take note of.

511-12OR:
100/1

Modest form in a number of point-to-point starts and again in Galway maiden hurdle a fortnight ago when 50/1 on rules bow. Plenty improvement to find.

Gelding by Fuisse out of an Anabaa mare. Half-brother to handy types Peruvian Bleu and Not That Fuisse. No threat in maiden hurdles at Listowel (3m, good) or Galway (2m½f, yielding) so far.

Interesting bred gelding by Fame And Glory by a Moscow Society mare. Well held all three bumper starts, must improve for switch to hurdling.

411-9OR:

Alkaadhem gelding out of a Mister Lord mare. Half-brother to game sorts A Hare Breath and The Organist. Shown very little so far and others appear more likely following latest Tipperary outing on hurdling introduction.

Aizavoski gelding, cost £195,000 earlier this year after point-to-point win. Held in one bumper start at Punchestown in April but could have more to say going over sticks.

Oscar gelding cost €42,000 as a three-year-old. Dam an unraced half-sister to fairly useful hurdler/chaser (stayed 2m4f) Crocodiles Rock. First start for Henry De Bromhead, though must improve on point-to-point showing in May.

Gelding by Scorpion out of a Be My Native mare. Half-brother to Might Bite. Modest effort at Galway a fortnight ago on debut, though Paul Townend is booked again, possible improver.

Son of Mahler out of a Kalanisi mare related to smart types Ok Corral, Mahler Lad and Ms Parfois. Third in Limerick maiden hurdle (2m, heavy) on debut in April, off since and could improve now.

Gelding by Doyen out of a Be My Native mare cheap €12,500 foal related to multiple winners Valdez and Kumbeshwar. Some promise in Killarney debut in May, though not as good last month at Galway.

Echo of Light mare from an unraced dam. Makes racecourse bow at six-years-old and watching brief safest unless vibes are strong.

By Shantou out of a fairly moderate dam (Simply Deep). Cost €25,000 as a four-year-old, and is a sister to the useful 2m1f-2m5f hurdle/chase winner Ballynagour. Some promise shown in Ayr maiden hurdle in May (2m, good) on debut, worth a look.

Betting

Forecast

Rhinestone (8/13), Envious Editor (9/2), Empire Burleque (6/1), Anywayyoulookatit (14/1), Harbrio (16/1), Good Luck Hope (25/1), Exceeded Brief (25/1), Local Rogue (33/1), Fact Or Fiction (33/1), Ragin Cajun (50/1), Classic Concorde (50/1), Dont Go Mad (66/1), Wadiyatink Now (66/1), Echoes Of Family (66/1), Wake Up Early (66/1), Tournois (66/1), Basil's Boy (66/1), Bythesametoken (100/1), Road By The River (100/1), Beltrame (100/1), Double Jd (100/1), French Furze (100/1)

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien's RHINESTONE was a winner at Thurles last winter and finished the term with a good showing in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham. That entitles him to plenty respect returning to commence his hurdling career and he should be up to this. Empire Burleque will likely improve from a recent run at Galway while Limerick third Local Rogue is another with potential to do better after a break. Rules debutantes Exceeded Brief and Harbrio along Classic Concorde are all worth keeping an eye on.
