611-12OR:
11/2

Bumper winner at Punchestown in June and definite signs of promise in maiden hurdle bow at Galway in August (fourth) over 2m½f on soft, up in trip with prospects of doing better.

811-12OR: CD
7/2

Finished very good fourth of 10 in novice hurdle at Down Royal in June and off since, low mileage for seven-years-old and there could be better to come.

611-12OR:

Landed a couple of bumper wins in France before joining top yard, has Russell on board for Irish debut and credentials are crystal clear.

611-12OR:
100/1

Point-to-point winner, sent off 66/1 at Galway on hurdles bow in September and finished tailed off. Watching brief.

611-12OR:

No improvement on second hurdles start at Clonmel on the first of the month, goes up in distance but again seems likely to struggle.

611-12OR:
33/1

Sent off 50/1 and displayed some degree of promise on debut at Wexford in a maiden hurdle 12 months ago, not able to match or better that in two further starts and one to be wary of for now.

711-12OR:
16/1

Some smart French Flat form on CV, but not a lot to shout about in pair of hurdles outings thus far, tongue strap added this time. Others have stronger claims.

611-12OR: BF
15/8

Promising Navan debut over 2m (heavy) in March, enough to have him sent off favourite at Cork in May for 3m maiden event. Fell before cards were played. Down in distance on return and one to reckon with.

611-12OR: BF
7/1

Remote second in maiden hurdle at Listowel over 2m4f in September, sent off favourite next time at Sedgefield but saddle slipped early and lost chance effectively. Still of interest.

Has made the frame in point-to-point but not an obvious contender in this rules bow, others preferred.

Jeremy mare. Dam, ran once over hurdles and was a 1m4f winner on Flat. Makes debut and market should reveal more.

611-5OR:
100/1

Scored in a point-to-point in January but clear signs of temperament in that sphere at times. Never in the mix and beaten a long way from home on rules bow at Galway last time.

611-5OR:
66/1

Lightly-raced maiden under rules, hood added last time at Galway failed to spark things to life and is another for the watch-list.

Forecast

School Boy Hours (15/8), Borderline Chatho (7/2), Dallas Des Pictons (4/1), Advantage Point (11/2), Thosedaysaregone (7/1), Ming Dynasty (16/1), First Class Return (33/1), West Is Best (50/1), She'stherightone (66/1), Gerilee (66/1), Ourbitontheside (66/1), Lady Writer (100/1), Ereforagudtime (100/1), Dix De Der (100/1)

Verdict

Dual French bumper scorer DALLAS DES PICTONS appears to have been found an excellent opening on first start for new connections and he can likely take this prize under Davy Russell. Thosedaysaregone has sure place claims having had his chance compromised at Sedgefield last time by an equipment failure while School Boy Hours and Advantage Point are also on the shortlist.
