12:40 Cork Sun 9 December 2018
Beat Hollow gelding out of a Presenting mare. Related to hurdle winner Pride Of The Braid and hurdle/chase winner A Little Magic. Worth a market check.
Scorpion gelding who cost £50,000 at the April sales following an impressive point-to-point win a month earlier. Could be of interest on hurdling debut following one win from three starts in bumper contests.
Won a bumper over 2m at Punchestown in December 2016 in fairly decisive fashion on debut but not seen again until May this year when finishing 2¼L adrift of the winner over 2m, finishing sixth of 25. Entitled to come on for that run.
Unraced gelding by Kalanisi out of an Oscar mare. Yard 19 from 126 starts with their hurdlers this term and worth a market check on debut.
Getaway gelding winner of two of his five bumper starts, both wins coming over this trip. Pushed along and no impression when third of nine appearing a little one pace on hurdling debut over C&D last month. Expected to improve on that run here.
Basement mark gelding when landing a Naas 1m handicap in July. Last seen well held on the AW at Dundalk last month and hard to fancy on hurdling debut.
12-months between final point-to-point start and a bumper win here in April. Yard have a good record at this meeting in the last two years and entitled to make the shortlist here.
Nothing of note in a number of desolate efforts over hurdles since May and easy to look elsewhere on the geldings fourth career start.
Won a Punchestown bumper before running well in defeat in a maiden hurdle over C&D when last seen 12-months ago. Entitled to need the run here.
Disappointed in a Fairyhouse bumper on debut when last seen in April. Could go well on hurdling introduction but likely to find one or two better suited to today's conditions.
Last seen finishing 50L adrift of Le Richbourg in a Killarney maiden hurdle over 18-months ago. Likely to need the run here and will be of more interest when going handicapping.
Ran well in defeat following a break when finishing second of nine beaten 2¾L last month over C&D on hurdling debut. Can't be ruled out looking at the full card.
Generally well held in a couple of bumpers and over hurdles on two occasions last month. Others look open to more improvement.
Gelding by Arakan out of a Roselier mare. Unlikely to score on debut for yard without a winner in 13 starts this term.
Ask gelding out of a Supreme Leader mare. Another that may struggle on his hurdling introduction for yard without a winner in five years.
Gelding by Durban Thunder out of a Synefos mare. Sixth of 13 on sole point-to-point start when last seen in May and entitled to need the run on hurdling bow.
Poor form in a series of dismal efforts in three maiden hurdle starts to date. Needs to improve dramatically.
Plenty to take out of a fifth of 20 beaten 27L on the geldings hurdling debut last month. More expected here and not to be taken lightly.
Presenting gelding out of an Alderbrook mare. Beaten a long way in two starts over timber so far and unappealing for now.
Gelding by Hannouma out of a Kris mare. Failed to finish in a couple of point-to-point starts when last seen in the spring. Others make more appeal.
Well held in a couple of gloomy maiden hurdle efforts to date including one over C&D in April. Looks vulnerable in this company.
Plenty to like about the mares maiden hurdle debut at Clonmel when last seen in January, finishing third of 15 beaten a little over 1L on heavy ground. Yard going well and worth a market check.
By Scorpion out of a Presenting mare. Best watched on hurdling debut from a yard who are five from 43 with their hurdlers this term.
Well held 59-rated handicapper on the Flat and one to avoid on hurdling introduction. Looks a long term prospect.
