511-12OR: 111D
12/1

In good form earlier in the year, recording back-to-back hurdles successes at Fairyhouse and Down Royal in the spring. Mixed bag in three runs since coming back in, latest off this mark over the trip at Navan being poor.

Heavy-ground winner over 2m at Fairyhouse in February. Likes to get his toe in and could do with seeing some rain. First run for 219 days, yard typically in form.

Missed the whole of 2017 and had been disappointing in a couple of hurdle starts since her return to action in September prior to close second over 2m3½f at Clonmel nine days ago, player if in the same mood down in trip.

Moved menacingly well before ultimately finishing half-length second at Limerick in decent contest last time. Rated 2lb higher but entitled to claims on that form.

Gained sole hurdle wins at Punchestown in January over 2m4f rated 97. Had fitness to prove on return from a break and others more persuasive this time.

Running well in defeat in a series of starts over timber since July, but likely to find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking on the card here.

Kalanisi mare who has been beaten over 40L in four of her five maiden hurdle starts and is not consistent enough for consideration here.

Mare was close in third on handicap hurdle bow at Thurles (2m, good to firm) this month, bumped up 2lb for her troubles but should have a say again.

Just a modest handicapper under both codes. Reverts here from the Flat and while likely to give an honest effort, should prove vulnerable.

Footstepsinthesand filly has run well in maiden hurdles over 2m/2m4f, poor last time no the level at Galway but makes handicap hurdle bow now. Probably has improvement to find.

Not much to be positive from four efforts in maiden hurdles to date, drops in distance for handicap bow and needs to take a step forward before meriting support.

Appears to have her own ideas on the game, but capable of fair form when on song, and finished well when fourth to Demi Plie over 2m4f at Fairyhouse recently, but not certain to be in the same mood now down in distance.

Yeats mare, hasn't stood out in three starts in maiden hurdles so far but returns from a short absence to make handicap debut and market check called for.

In frame several times in handicaps off a higher mark, recent form not all that strong and soon beaten at Fairyhouse 10 days ago over 2m4f. Could offer more down in trip.

Filly must improve significantly on best of her four efforts in maiden hurdles, though she did have a recent spin at Cork to sharpen her up ahead of this handicap bow.

Minor promise in first hurdle start but completely tailed off in both subsequent starts and now switches to handicaps with an awful lot to prove.

Verdict

DRAKAINA moved ominously well at Limerick last time before settling for a close second. The winner has since run a pleasing race off a much higher mark in competitive fare at Cheltenham and, just 2lb higher herself. Paul Power's mount should give a good account again. Bridge Native bounced back to form last time at Clonmel and will be in the mix with a repeat while Lucky Phil wasn't far away on handicap debut at Thurles and could have more to say. Mag Brady and I'm Not Alone make their first starts in handicap company and should be closely monitored.
