7/2

Quickened nicely to win his bumper here in March, showing a good turn of foot for one that will need further in time. Should build on that now hurdling, and leading claims.

Has won a Listowel bumper in the mud, but has lost his way since, and returns to hurdles with something to prove after a trio of poor efforts earlier in the year.

411-9OR:
20/1

Won a maiden bumper at Limerick in March, although had the benefit of experience there, and beaten again since. No reason why he won't adapt to hurdles, but others have more obvious claims.

711-4OR:
50/1

Still a maiden, but belied big odds when a good ½L second of 6 to Los Alamos in a 2m6f maiden hurdle at Thurles last time. Not one to underestimate despite unfashionable connections.

Stepped up on earlier efforts when third, just behind An Fearchan, in a 2m6f novice at Thurles won by Los Alamos last time. Shouldn't be much between the pair again.

Dam was unplaced on all three bumper starts for this yard, and nothing in his pedigree to suggest he will be anything out of the ordinary.

711-4OR:
10/1

Showed ability in a couple of bumpers, and left hurdling debut form behind when 1¾L second of 16 to Mount Hanover in maiden at Fairyhouse last December. Should improve, although absence since is an obvious concern.

411-4OR:

Scorpion half-brother to 2m hurdle/chase winner Sky Full of Stars, but pedigree is essentially a modest one, and he will find easier opportunities down the line.

511-4OR:

Built on promise of racecourse debut when 16L third of 7 to Salty Boy in a C&D maiden hurdle last time. More to come with experience, and shortlisted.

511-4OR:

€52,000 Court Cave gelding. Closely related to bumper winner Racing Europe out of a winning pointer. Not without appeal on paper, but more likely one for the future.

511-4OR:
100/1

Has made the frame in point-to-points, but jumped poorly when tailed off on hurdles bow, and makes no appeal on the back of that effort.

2/1

Disappointed on hurdles debut for Paul Nicholls but was fourth in similar contests for Jimmy Moffatt. Has improved for switch to current yard, and every chance on latest second of 14 to Warnaq in handicap at Navan last time.

411-4OR:
33/1

Showed ability despite finishing last of five on debut at Gowran two months ago, and folly to dismiss totally with yard in such good form.

510-11OR:

Tailed off in bumpers and makes no appeal whatsoever switching to hurdles after more than a year off.

Merely hinted at ability when mid-field in a novice hurdle at Cork last month, and looks one for the longer term, if anything.

Daughter of Flemensfirth who won a point-to-point in February, and placed subsequently, but pulled up on latest start between the flags, and faces a stiff test on hurdles bow.

Betting

Forecast

Western Honour (2/1), Spyglass Hill (5/2), Castlebawn West (7/2), Riverdene (10/1), Kilchreest Moon (11/1), Dos Gardenias (12/1), Thegoaheadman (14/1), Feelin' Groovy (20/1), Three Queens (20/1), Whydah (33/1), All The Way West (33/1), Kate O C B (33/1), The Longest Time (40/1), An Fearchan (50/1), Johnnys Girl (66/1), James Eclipse (66/1), Exit To The West (100/1), Paddymaclovin (100/1), Araukan (100/1), West Is Best (100/1), Salsomajory (100/1)

Verdict

WESTERN HONOUR is more exposed than most, but produced a career best when second to the well-handicapped Warnaq at Navan, and will appreciate the step up in trip, so is preferred to hurdles debutant Castlebawn West and C&D third Spyglass Hill.
  1. Western Honour
  2. Castlebawn West
  3. Spyglass Hill
