Miguel Angel gelding out of a Shantou mare. Tailed off when pulled up on debut at Limerick over Christmas and much of the same can be expected here.

Plugged on at the one pace on debut when ninth of 11 at Limerick before another heavy defeat at Tramore on new year's day. Others make more appeal.

Gelding by Al Namix out of a Lavirco mare. Cost €77,000 as a three-year-old and could be of interest on debut.

Made mistakes in a May point-to-point when last seen over 18-months ago. Looks a long term prospect.

French import not seen for over two years. Likely to be well prepped for this event for leading handler.

Gelding by Getaway out of a Milan mare. Likely to find this tough going on debut, but is worth a market check from inform yard.

Dropped towards rear three out and eased on hurdling debut at Naas in November before making a mistake at the first and unseating at the second in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle earlier this month. First-time blinkers unlikely to improve the gealding.

Urban Poet gelding out of a Golden Tornado mare. Dam well held in bumpers. Has a bit to prove in this company.

611-12OR:

Shown an aptitude for hurdling and represents a top yard. Ran well in defeat at Navan last month but needs to shake off a heavy defeat at Down Royal last time out.

611-12OR:

No impression on a number of dour hurdling efforts last month. Hard to place any faith in and easily dismissed.

511-10OR:
100/1

Well down the field in a couple of spring point-to-point contests last year. Makes little appeal in this heat on debut under rules.

511-10OR:

Not disgraced in a couple of bumpers at Thurles and Punchestown before Christmas and ran well in defeat on maiden hurdle debut at Limerick last month. Needs to improve but holds slender place claims.

Gelding by Hannouma out of a Kris mare. Failed to finish in a couple of point-to-point starts in the spring before being tailed off on both maiden hurdle starts last month.

Generally well held in three bumper starts last year including a 23L defeat at Limerick last month. Others make more appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Dento Des Obeaux (13/8), The Long Mile (11/4), Rakhine State (9/2), Capuccimix (6/1), Dromline (16/1), Mason Jar (20/1), Accidental (33/1), Gracious Gamble (40/1), Harbrio (50/1), Gangsters Paradise (50/1), Too Much To Ask (100/1), Buttevant Boy (100/1), Skypunch (100/1), Currabeha Hill (100/1), Lizavoura (100/1), Game Line (100/1), Hawkfield Music (125/1)

Verdict

A race that appears to be between four rivals with the Willie Mullins-trained, Sullivan Bloodstock-owned, DENTO DES OBEAUX likely to land the spoils here on first start under rules for over two years. The Gordon Elliott-trained, Rakhine State, The Long Mile, owned by J P McManus and newcomer Capuccimix can prove to be the biggest dangers in a weak looking renewal.
