911-12OR:
12/1

Lone win of 2014 now somewhat a distant memory and three starts so far since switched to this yard have showed very little. Don't like writing any off from this yard but looks safe to do so.

711-12OR:

Unplaced maiden hurdler jumped sketchily on chasing debut at Cork where he was a remote 10th of 13, time on his side but can't be recommended here.

Second at Down Royal two starts back would give him an each-way chance but that his only completion in his last four starts. Jumping often an issue as it was last time when pulled up.

611-12OR:

Failed to get competitive in three hurdles starts and similar on chase debut at Down Royal where beaten 22L into sixth. One of the least experienced so can still improve but likely others more prepared at present.

911-12OR:
100/1

Well beaten in lone chase run in 2017 and similar start since. After pulled ups over hurdles and in a point-to-point he was a remote 16th of 22 over hurdles latest. Hard to find positives here.

3m maiden hurdle winner kept on well for seventh over 2m5f penultimately before latest fifth here over 3m1½f saw jumping errors aplenty but still respectable form. Certainly can win such a contest if his jumping holds up.

Only beat a combined five rivals in four starts over hurdles and completely tailed off on recent chase bow at Down Royal. Only positive is his trainer but that alone not enough to have confidence.

611-12OR:

Never better than fifth (of six) over hurdles and was beaten 27L into ninth on chasing bow at Limerick. Can come forward for that but can't be suggested with any confidence.

Fourth at Clonmel two starts back would give him a live chance but lesser efforts the next twice. Up quite drastically in trip but not looked an obvious stayer especially having raced very keenly here latest.

Lightly raced Ballinrobe maiden hurdle winner showed ability on first chase start where he finished fourth of eight at Tramore beaten 20L over 2m. Well bred for staying trips so much better expected now and live contender here.

811-12OR:
4/1

Finished midfield in only chase start to date in July and been in good form since over hurdles including a win at Cork and several good efforts since. Hurdles form among the best on offer so leading claims now back over fences.

11/4

2m5½f Down Royal win the highlight of his five starts over hurdles and made most promising start over fences over this trip at Limerick where he stayed on well into second of 13. That form looks the best on offer here so the one to beat.

Betting

Forecast

Young Paddymc (11/4), Guided By You (7/2), Smithscorner (4/1), Roxboro Road (7/1), Carlitos Bay (10/1), Ange D'or Javilex (12/1), Loupgarou (12/1), Frankly All Talk (16/1), Liar's Dice (33/1), Kayf Thou (66/1), Arch Melody (66/1), Golden Silence (100/1)

Verdict

An open looking contest can go the way of Limerick runner up YOUNG PADDYMC who showed as good form as any over hurdles and that positive chase start also reads very well here. Roxboro Road is certainly one with untapped potential and perhaps this step up in trip can be the key so he is feared as is Smithscorner who has been in fine form over hurdles lately.
