13:45 Clonmel Thu 6 December 2018
Absent for over two years before being brought down in handicap hurdle at Cork (2mf, soft) 18 days ago. This run should reveal what ability remains.
Has made the frame on last four starts in handicap hurdles around 2m, showing gradual improvement. Unproven over further, but pedigree is full of stamina influences, and ought to do better still at this trip.
Fell on latest hurdles start at Bellewstown on August, and no threat in a number of AW outings at Dundalk on either side of that run. Others more persuasive.
Bounced back to form when fourth over 2m at Thurles on latest start. Claims if she can build on that having had excuses on her previous outing.
Back to the mark he was successful off at Limerick in May, and probably needed the run after a break at Cork last month. Not ruled out with that under his belt.
Below form on first two starts for current yard, but shaped well despite meeting trouble at Ballinrobe last time, and feasibly handicapped on 4lb higher mark than when winning at Tramore in January.
Looks limited on early evidence, and well beaten on both handicap starts despite a lowly mark.
Won in the mud at Ballinrobe in May, but has lost her form subsequently, and little appeal on recent efforts.
Ran well when making his handicap debut here in May, but failed to build on that effort at Downpatrick (2m5f) next time, and returns from a break with a little to prove.
Ran one of her better recent races when fifth at Cork (3m) last time, and becoming well handicapped, so isn't one to dismiss out of hand.
Won at Galway last October, but lightly raced since, and has run poorly on last three starts, so plenty to prove at present.
Better on the Flat than over hurdles so far, and while she fared a bit better on her latest outing in this sphere, she makes limited appeal on balance.
Three time winner over hurdles but out of form in recent years. Pulled up at Roscommon (2m, good) in June for Evanna McCutcheon, and starts out for a new yard now.
22-race maiden who wasn't disgraced at Thurles last time, but needs to build on that to get involved and is opposable on balance.
One or two respectable efforts over hurdles this term, but below par at Thurles last time, and needs to raise his game markedly to shed maiden tag.
Off the track for a long time before a couple of indifferent runs for Shark Hanlon in 2017, and starting out for another new yard after a further absence. Hard to fancy.
Out of form when last seen for Val O'Brien over two years ago (broke blood vessel final start), and asking a lot for her to be competitive on belated return for new yard.
Won over C&D in May and claims on that form, but has been out of sorts over fences more recently, and needs to put those disappointments behind him on return to hurdles.
