1011-12OR: 109D
20/1

Winner of three of his 23 handicap starts, but the out of form 10-year-old is racing 15lb lower than his last winning mark and may not be up to this off top weight.

Has failed to build on her promising third of 11 on hurdling debut in a Sligo maiden last August. Well held behind Relegate at Naas last month and looks up against it here.

Winner of three of his 22 starts over hurdles including a second of 15 in a bumper over C&D, though that was back in 2011. Hard to fancy.

Won a bumper around here in February 2017, yet to convince over timber and has first-time tongue-tie fitted to spark an improvement. Market likely to be the best guide.

5/1

Running well in defeat in a number of consistent maiden hurdle starts since February. Found the step in to novice company a little too much last month. Market likely to reveal expectations on handicap debut.

Modest and starting to look regressive on the Flat, sent off big prices in two hurdles starts in November before a 20L defeat behind Buildmeupbuttercup at Navan last month. Out of sorts and this looks a tough ask.

911-5OR: 102CD
10/1

One from two over C&D, the win coming in April 2015 off a 3lb higher mark. Out of form since returning to action last month and others hold stronger profiles.

Winner over the larger obstacles in a Fairyhouse beginners chase 11-months ago but hurdle form looks sketchy at best. Very little to be positive about.

711-1OR: 98D
13/2

Winner of a Limerick handicap hurdle on heavy ground last March off an 11lb lower mark. Still travelling well when falling two out at Limerick over Christmas and capable of making amends here.

Well held and down the field in a number of hurdle starts since August, but has the potential to hit the frame here on handicap debut.

Seven-race maiden hurdler produced possibly a career best earlier this month when finishing fourth of 19 beaten 2L behind Mystic Heights at Naas. Shortlisted but needs to find more consistency.

Fourth of 22 over C&D towards the end of the year, finishing 7½L adrift of Breesy Mountain. Place claims but appears up against it.

Betting

Forecast

Free Ranger (5/1), Empire Burleque (11/2), Uno Momento (6/1), Princess Mahler (13/2), Divin Desir (9/1), Song Of The Sky (10/1), Bog War (10/1), De Mazzaro (12/1), James Boru (12/1), Waaheb (14/1), Baby Jake (20/1), Samson Bill (33/1)

Verdict

The J J Walsh-trained PRINCESS MAHLER was still travelling well when falling two out at Limerick over Christmas and is more than capable of making amends here over a trip more suited to the seven-year-olds strengths. Empire Burleque in first-time tongue-tie could be on a handy mark on his second handicap start, while Noel Kelly's, James Boru can go well at a price.
  1. Princess Mahler
  2. Empire Burleque
  3. James Boru
