12/1

Grade Two winning hurdler for Alan King has shown himself every much as able over fences for this yard with wins at Galway and subsequently in a Cork Grade Three where he travelled very strongly. Penalty makes life tough but good enough to go close.

Only 1L behind smart Delta Work on chase bow and won comfortably next over C&D. Pulled up at Navan after jumping errors aplenty and fell at the fifth next at Leopardstown so the concern here is quite obvious.

Smart hurdler but already well held by Ben Dundee when falling on chase debut here. Tough task since that in Boxing Day Limerick Grade One where he was a remote fifth. More needed overall.

Grade Three placed hurdler (14L behind Blow By Blow) improved by one place in each of his three chases culminating in a very easy win at Leopardstown which suggested he could be a novice going places. More needed but very possible.

Navan scorer was a very respectable third to Delta Work next in a Fairyhouse Grade One before making less impact at same level at Limerick. Fairyhouse form among the best on offer so certainly rated a leading contender.

Always looked a chaser in the making over hurdles and made a winning start over the larger obstacles at Fairyhouse. Fourth here next was a little disappointing and overall looks to have a bit to find.

Listed hurdle winner in France finished second on stable/chase debut at Gowran before going one better impressively at Naas. Looks a smart prospect sure to make his mark in Grade company and weight concession a clear positive.

Betting

Forecast

A Plus Tard (5/4), Jetz (7/2), Gun Digger (9/2), Ben Dundee (6/1), Blow By Blow (6/1), Cubomania (10/1), Winter Escape (12/1), Poli Roi (28/1), Beyond The Law (33/1)

Verdict

WINTER ESCAPE will have to be very smart if he is to give weight away to these rivals and win but that was exactly what he looked when comfortably scoring in Grade Three company latest and a chance is taken that he has the class to overcome the penalty. There are dangers aplenty with impressive Naas winner A Plus Tard, a smart hurdler in France chief among them. Gordon Elliott runs five and Jack Kennedy's mount GUN DIGGER looks the brightest prospect after fairly bolting up latest.
