33/1

0-9 over hurdles, and seems to be regressing much faster than handicapper can drop him. Latest efforts was abysmal, and hard to fancy even though dropped in class.

Won at Ballinrobe in August, and good second off 1lb lower over C&D two starts back. Ran well over fences last time, and sure to be on the premises again.

Just one win from 24 runs to date, but ran well when third of 14 in handicap hurdle at Kilbeggan (3m½f, good) in June, and place claims if in same form now.

Thriving at present, and followed handicap win over 2m here with a career-best effort to score at Thurles on Monday. Should go well under a penalty for that success.

Slipped in the weights before winning at Downpatrick on penultimate start, and ran even better when third over 2m4f at Punchestown. Best at this trip, and still feasibly handicapped.

C&D winner who is on a long losing run. Creditable sixth of 14 in a C&D handicap hurdle won by Demi Plie last week, and place claims if he can build on that.

Fortunate to finish second in a 2m3f Downpatrick maiden in August and overall form casts serious doubt on her ability to get competitive here. Cheekpieces tried after running poorly here last week.

In frame several times in handicaps off a higher mark, and departed before things got serious at Wexford (2m6f) last time. Risky, but capable on her best form,

Lightly raced over hurdles, but not progressing, and trailed home at Galway on latest start, having pulled up on handicap debut.

Won a C&D event last October, and was fairly well placed when slipping up here last week in race won by Demie Plie. Place claims on pick of earlier efforts this autumn, assuming her confidence is unaffected.

Sole win in 17 starts over hurdles came at Down Royal in May. Good fourth of 16 in handicap hurdle over C&D (good) last month, and place claims if running to a similar level now.

Improved on previous poor efforts when fifth in a Sligo handicap in August, and creditable effort when filling the same spot over C&D last month. Needs cheekpieces to extract more to defy current mark, though.

Yet to trouble the judge, although still early days, and brought down through no fault of her own at Clonmel last time. May need this to boost her confidence.

Lightly-raced maiden over hurdles, although has won over 10f on the Flat. Ran poorly in cheekpieces over C&D last time, and percentage call is to oppose her again.

Produced a couple of encouraging runs when returning to the track in May at Limerick and Listowel, but not progressed, and behind several of these when tenth over C&D on latest start.

Struggling to make an impact at present, and finished 19L behind Fintown Boy over 2m on latest start, which underlines the stiffness of his present task.

Betting

Forecast

Fintown Boy (6/4), Can't Be Done (6/1), Authorative (7/1), Zagnzig (7/1), Glendaars Warrior (8/1), The Church Gate (11/1), Euro So Brave (12/1), Kilkeaskin Molly (14/1), Filly Mullins (16/1), Maighnealta (16/1), Scotch Quay (20/1), Northern Emperor (25/1), Galuppi (25/1), Bazarov (25/1), Tsarina Sophia (25/1), Steelyeyed (33/1), Makeyourcall (33/1), Derecho Storm (33/1), Baltimore Buzz (33/1)

Verdict

FINTOWN BOY could hardly be in better form, and is taken to complete a quick hat-trick. Can't Be Done is also running consistently well, so makes the shortlist along with Authorative, who remains on a handy mark and was just behind a subsequent winner at Punchestown last time.

  2. Can't Be Done
