911-12OR: 98
50/1

Well below her best level of form since leaving Olly Murphy (fallen 9lb in the weights); trainer adopts to try a change of scenery (stablemate of The Lady Rules) in the Scottish Borders.

3/1

Outpaced at a crucial stage before rallying for pressure when finishing a much improved second at Down Royal (2m+, yielding) on Boxing Day; 0-8 over hurdles, but this race presents a reasonable winning opportunity.

811-6OR: 92
33/1

Proving to be a frustrating mare having failed to build upon some initial promise, and has squandered a couple of winning opportunities; 4lb lower than when finishing tailed-off over 2m5f here last month (on her first start for 14 months).

611-5OR: 91
12/1

Has been pointing for Enda Bolger since last competing under rules at Roscommon (2m) in June 2018; interesting to see how she figures in the market on debut for Donald McCain, albeit hardly the most alluring.

510-12OR: 84
6/1

Stablemate of Saucysioux; without a win in 14 previous attempts over hurdles; finished a staying on third (beaten 4½L) in a 2m Uttoxeter novices' handicap hurdle prior to Christmas.

20/1

Jumped poorly (again) over fences here in November and looks to have gone the wrong way since finishing third at Carlisle (2m1f) in March; handicap mark easing; needs the return to hurdles to provide some form of impetus.

710-6OR: 78BF
6/5

Didn't go through with her finishing effort despite tanking into a 3L lead at the final flight at Newcastle (2m, good to soft); clearly not wholly reliable but perfectly capable in this grade; prominent in the betting exchanges.

710-4OR: 76
13/2

Seven-race hurdles maiden who hasn't exactly threatened to change that status anytime imminently; one-paced fourth (beaten 11L) in a moderate contest at Newcastle recently (2m+, soft); needs more.

Betting

Forecast

Choochoobugaloo (6/5), Bracka Lily (3/1), The Lady Rules (6/1), Lady Samback (13/2), Rose's In The Rain (12/1), Avondhu Pearl (20/1), Sunset Marquis (33/1), Saucysioux (50/1)

Verdict

Not a deep race. Choochoobugaloo is with an astute trainer and jockey combination (Sam and Jonathan England) but she blew her golden opportunity when finding precisely nothing whatsoever off the bridle at Newcastle, and although perfectly capable of winning this similarly moderate race doing absolute handsprings, she most definitely isn't one for the mortgage at short odds. With the remainder wholly unconvincing, the only real viable alternative is the Noel Kelly-trained BRACKA LILY. The sharp nature of Kelso mightn't prove to be a match made in heaven but she showed more than enough ability at Down Royal (outpaced at a crucial stage) on Boxing Day.
