711-10OR: 142BF
14/1

Not the easiest to train seemingly, but 2lb lower than when finishing fourth in the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham in March over similar trip. Could go well fresh.

7/1

Reliable C&D winner, finished fourth behind Bedrock at Tipperary early last month, with that rival franking form by taking Samcro's scalp since. Should give a good account.

Off the track for the thick end of 500-days, does have some fair form in the book though. Market should prove an effective guide.

5/1

Excellent third over 3m at Punchestown in the spring when last spotted. Can hardly be accused of consistency but would have fair claims on a going day.

710-7OR: 125D
6/1

Game winner at Clonmel in September in previous hurdles start, below par on the Flat since and, from 9lb higher mark likely must jump cleaner to add to tally.

510-6OR: 128D
12/1

Won his first two starts over timber in decisive fashion, since found out in Listed Limerick event (2m5f, good) but on a seemingly fair mark now going handicapping.

Has a 544-day absence to overcome and reverts to hurdles for it, would be a surprise if this is a winning return in the circumstances.

8/1

Very consistent over the last 12 months, twice winning over fences and going close at Fairyhouse (3m, good) in January on soft-to-heavy going. Has won since from higher chase mark, noted.

810-4OR: 122D
10/3

Punchestown winner last month (2m4f, good), travelling powerfully and seemingly getting things done with a bit in hand. Gone up 6lb but should stay in the mix.

910-3OR: 121CD
16/1

Off the track for a mammoth 700-day but returns with stable in fine form and off a workable mark, so worth at least a check in the betting.

Gowran Park maiden hurdle winner in June over this trip, appeared to have a chance at Thurles on Thursday back up in distance but effort quickly petered out and was pulled up. Connections go again quickly.

Placed twice at Listowel in September over the trip, held latest at Galway when close to 20L down in fourth. Others have more appeal here.

Far from disgraced in fifth at Galway (2m5f, yielding) late last month, drops 1lb and remains unexposed, could harbour place claims.

Betting

Forecast

Slippery Serpent (10/3), De Name Escapes Me (5/1), Brex Drago (6/1), Rooster Byron (13/2), Plinth (7/1), Fitzhenry (8/1), Vision D'Ete (9/1), Randalls Ur Poet (12/1), Air Supremacy (12/1), Sire Du Berlais (14/1), Russian Bill (16/1), Chisholm Trail (20/1), Walk To Freedom (20/1), Mr Diablo (25/1)

Verdict

A wide open heat it seems but SLIPPERY SERPENT travelled powerfully well at Punchestown last time and didn't appear to have shown his full hand in winning. He's up 6lb and in a stronger race now, but the manner of that win bodes well. Air Supremacy's hat-trick bid came up short in Listed company at Limerick but he too has fair claims in a handicap while Plinth, Sire Du Berlais and Rooster Byron can all get in the shake-up for places.
