811-12OR:
50/1

Showed little in two bumpers and after unseating on hurdles bow he could only manage a tailed off seventh last time out. May have more to come but huge step up needed to be competitive.

611-12OR: 88
8/1

Showed little in first four hurdle starts but stepped up last time out when fifth of 14 in a Fairyhouse handicap. Possibilities based on that but may find a couple too strong nevertheless.

611-12OR:
5/4

Showed ability without making the frame in two bumpers last season and made a promising start over hurdles behind the potentially high class Felix Desjy when sixth of 14. With that beneficial experience and fitness wise he has leading claims here.

711-12OR:
33/1

Beaten over 50L in first two starts but signs of improvement latest when he was beaten 17½L into fifth at Clonmel. Open to further improvement so not totally ruled out here although good bit more needed.

711-12OR:
66/1

Never a factor in bumpers and similar story since sent hurdling. Fell at the first penultimately and last of 17 latest when tailed off throughout. Easy to rule out.

11/8

Point-to-point winner disappointed on hurdles debut for Paul Nicholls but was fourth in three similar contests for James Moffatt. Now switches to top yard well known for improving new recruits and therefore is a leading player.

611-5OR: 86
12/1

Not disgraced yet never truly competitive in four hurdle starts last season with her latest sixth of 12 just about the best of them. Further step up needed but may need this first run back.

Betting

Forecast

Leave Your Mark (5/4), Western Honour (11/8), Jimmy Rabbitte (8/1), Belle West (12/1), Paddy Melia (33/1), Ballinlongig (50/1), Ventura Boulevard (66/1)

Verdict

WESTERN HONOUR has form strong enough to be competitive with three fourths to date but the switch to Gordon Elliott's yard could easily see him improve more so he gets the nod here. Leave Your Mark has few miles on the clock and ran well enough on his hurdles bow at Galway to give him strong claims also. Both Jimmy Rabbitte and Paddy Melia improved most recently and each have claims based on those efforts.
  1. Western Honour
  2. Leave Your Mark
  3. Jimmy Rabbitte
