411-4OR:
12/1

Galileo colt changed hands for €52,000 as a two-year-old. Modest performer in two starts over 1m4f on the Flat, including finishing 10th of 12 in the Grade 1 Irish Derby. Best watched on hurdling bow.

Moderate 79-rated handicapper on the Flat for trainer Aidan O'Brien. Worth a market check, gelding and fitted with first-time tongue-tie on hurdling debut.

Not totally disgraced in a couple of hurdling spins in September last year. Looks vulnerable in this company.

7/2

Disappointed as odds-on favourite on hurdling debut last month. Expected to improve here for powerful owner and yard that have a 32% strike-rate here in January since 2016.

411-4OR:
20/1

Winner on the Flat in England for trainer Ged O'Keefe, achieving a rating of 87 in the process. Well held on hurdling debut at Leopardstown over Christmas, but can be expected to produce better here.

411-4OR:

Nothing of note when disappointing connections in three dour maiden hurdle efforts last month. Looks opposable.

Last RunWatch last race

411-4OR:
100/1

A 40L defeat and only getting as far as the third in two career hurdle starts last month doesn't make for encouraging reading. First time hood unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Last RunWatch last race

411-4OR:
8/1

Twice hit the crossbar in four starts on the level, including in a maiden at Leopardstown in October on final start for Mick Halford. Expected to improve on hurdling debut run at the same track over Christmas.

411-4OR:

By Pour Moi, is a half-brother to three winners, but was a modest 53-rated maiden on the Flat in four starts between April and August. Beaten 32L on hurdling bow here last month and may be more to come when handicapping.

411-4OR:

Has produced a number of laboured runs in two career hurdle spins to date. Hard to see him making any significant impact here.

411-4OR:

Looked over-whelmed in a couple of hurdling starts last month, well beaten and no impression on each occasion. Plenty to work on based on efforts so far.

410-11OR:
100/1

Two heavy defeats were followed by a fall three out in a Cork maiden hurdle when already tailed off. Hard to construct much of a case for the filly.

410-11OR:
9/4

Well held in Listed hurdle at Auteuil before leaving France and a disappointing fourth of 28 behind Sir Erec at Leopardstown over Christmas. Second of three runners for yard that boast a 32% strike rate here in the last three years.

410-11OR: BF
7/2

Only got as far as the first on hurdling debut when sent off the 13/8 favourite here last month. Appears to be stable jockeys choice and sports a first-time hood for yard that have a 32% strike-rate here in January since 2016.

410-11OR:

Disappointing five-race maiden on the Flat and has continued to disappoint in three gloomy hurdle starts since November. Others preferred.

410-11OR:

Couple of tame efforts so far over timber, including when pulled-up at Fairyhouse this month having gone off a 33/1 chance.

410-11OR:

Poor sort for Dermot Weld on the Flat last year and was soon beaten in a Leopardstown maiden hurdle over Christmas. Yard have a 38% win and place strike rate at this meeting in the last three years.

410-11OR:

Some promise on Flat debut at Killarney in July before disappointing in three runs later in the season. Beaten a long way out in both hurdles starts to date.

410-11OR:
40/1

Poor form in a series of dismal starts on the Flat since October. Worth a market check in first-time tongue tie on hurdling debut for in form trainer/jockey combination.

410-11OR:
16/1

Three Flat wins achieved a modest level. Not disgraced on debut over hurdles finishing fifth of 28 behind Sir Erec at Leopardstown over Christmas. Plenty to find in this contest.

410-11OR:

Never a factor on hurdling debut in a 2m maiden here last month when sent off a 100/1. Looks up against it here.

First Reserve: 68-rated Flat handicapper for trainer Michael Bell. New yard in good form and could be of interest if making the line-up.

Forecast

Andalusa (9/4), Fenta Des Obeaux (7/2), Farid (7/2), Pienta (8/1), Carlo Biraghi (12/1), Christopher Robin (14/1), Morning Skye (14/1), Great Vizier (14/1), Stormy Tale (16/1), Ingenuity (20/1), Star Sapphire (40/1), Imperial Choice (50/1), Tashman (50/1), Highway To Heaven (50/1), Ocean Voyage (66/1), Elusive Don (66/1), Magic Sea (100/1), Livingstones Quest (100/1), Her Approval (100/1), Rathbride Prince (100/1), Seekamist (100/1), Sicario (100/1), Shes Gold (100/1), Thefaithfulindian (100/1), Ainmisfearr (100/1)

Verdict

Could be a battle royale with three Willie Mullins runners all in with a shout here. FARID the mount of J P McManus-nominated, Mark Walsh can improve on his third of 16 on debut in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle last month. The chances Fenta Des Obeaux will be highlighted in the market in the minutes leading up to the off while Andalusa will need to improve on a gloomy hurdling debut at Leopardstown last month. The Noel Meade-trained Pienta could take advantage if any of the main protagonists falter.
