611-12OR:
66/1

Fracas gelding out of a Up And At 'Em mare. Half brother to winners The Fox Tully and Makis Terz. Likely to require the experience on debut.

611-12OR:
6/5

Improved from a disappointing debut at Naas in November to finish within 3L of City Island in a Leopardstown maiden hurdle over 2m on St Stephens Day. Continuation of development expected.

100/1

Well down the field in a Down Royal bumper on St Stephens Day. First time tongue-tie doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.

611-12OR:
100/1

Modest point-to-point performer, never nearer seventh of 16 beaten over 40L on hurdling debut in a Fairyhouse maiden last month. Others preferred.

911-12OR: C
7/4

Solid maiden hurdle performances came 12-months apart. Second of 24 on return to action in a Cork 2m contest last month. Market likely to be the best guide.

611-12OR:

Four runs in maiden/novice/handicap company on the Flat have been spread over more than two years. Best watched on hurdling debut.

611-12OR:
100/1

Gelding by Arakan out of a Roselier mare. Not fluent on debut when tailed off and pulled up before four out in a Cork maiden hurdle last month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.

611-12OR:
100/1

Wolf Tone gelding out of a Hubbly Bubbly mare. Overall record in a couple of starts to date casts doubt on her ability to get competitive here. First-time tongue-tie unlikely to make much difference.

511-9OR:
100/1

Generally well beaten in three starts over hurdles and requires a chunk of improvement to play a part here.

Gelding by Milan out of a Danehill Dancer mare. Cost €38,000 as a three-year-old. Improved on third start of career at Leopardstown recently and one for the shortlist.

12/1

Promising second hurdle start when finishing fourth of 16 beaten 3½L in a Leopardstown maiden over Christmas. Place claims for interesting gelding.

Gelding by Jeremy out of a Erins Isle mare. Difficult to make a case for on debut from a yard without a winner in 15 starts this season.

511-9OR: D
7/1

Winner of two bumpers at Sligo and Listowel early in the summer and appears to be improving in a couple of hurdle starts last year. Rates a leading contender.

511-9OR:
33/1

Gradual improvement in four point-to-points culminating in a second placed effort in final start. Tailed off when pulled up before the last on debut here last month and may be of more interest when handicapping.

511-9OR:
66/1

Scored a couple of times on the AW at Dundalk after leaving Joseph O'Brien, rated in the 80s on the Flat. Well held on hurdling debut and looks a future prospect.

Verdict

Trainer Gordon Elliott appears to found found an ideal opportunity for the Spanish Moon gelding, DALLAS DES PICTONS to get off the mark at the third time of asking over hurdles. The Gigginstown Stud-owned seven-year-old can see off the attentions of potential dangers, The Red Menace and potential improver, Let The Heirs Walk.
