7/1

Bad blunder four out did for him over fences last time out but won twice this summer over hurdles before finishing fourth more recently off this handicap mark. In form and should go well providing showers stay away.

Only won one of 25 hurdle starts and was well behind Lleyton when eighth two starts back before finishing last of 14 at Wexford. Recent form gives him a bit to prove.

Struggled in next four hurdle starts after maiden success back in June. Return to the flat last time was uninspiring also as she tailed in last of nine. Would need to bounce back in some style to go close.

Big improvement in third start when he managed to finish third at 40/1 in a Tramore maiden hurdle but couldn't build on that most recently when switched to handicapping as he finished 13th of 15 at Gowran. Open to improvement but it is needed.

6/1

Maiden of 19 over hurdles but almost took advantage of tumbling mark latest as he finished second of 14 at Wexford. Upped 3lb for that effort but unexposed overall at this trip (mostly raced over 2m4f plus) and has to be considered now.

Seemed to be improving so no big surprise that he got off the mark last time out at Fairyhouse where he won a 14-runner handicap by 3¾L. Upped 7lb now but certainly arrives here as a leading contender based on recent form.

Slightly better effort latest when switched to a handicap for the first time as he finished fourth of 12 at Clonmel. Same mark today so has realistic place claims but more needed to achieve any more than that.

Long-standing hurdles maiden and was basically tailed off in last two starts in the spring. Arrives after a lengthy absence with question marks aplenty.

8/1

Second to Lleyton at Tramore penultimately a career best but flopped next at Clonmel. 1lb worse off with re-opposing rival now and that her only placed run in 13 starts so must be rated a risky proposition.

610-11OR: 80

Unplaced in all 15 career starts and after recent struggles on the flat now tries hurdles for the first time since 2016. All four previous hurdle runs saw her tailed off so can readily be dismissed.

28-race maiden ran a fair race latest when fifth at Clonmel but she hasn't made the frame since 2016 and isn't getting any younger so isn't likely to better that here.

Close fifth at Clonmel three starts back one of his better runs but well behind Lleyton next and sixth latest at Clonmel so wait for his first top three finish likely to go on.

Betting

Forecast

Fintown Boy (1/1), Walkers Point (6/1), Lleyton (7/1), Musical Ava (8/1), Takemeback (11/1), Still Alive (14/1), Mr Moondance (20/1), Slainte And Thanks (20/1), Whereyounow (25/1), Profoundly (25/1), Fly Round The Bend (28/1), Dolly Rose (66/1)

Verdict

LLEYTON had been running well over hurdles before his latest effort where an error cost him over fences but he holds sway over several of these on recent clashes and can defy top weight to score. Recent winner Fintown Boy rates as the main danger even with a 7lb rise in the weights and Walkers Point is another worth considering on the back of a good reappearance second.
