28/1

Sixth of 15 on seasonal debut at Fairyhouse before disappointing behind Seskin Flyer at Limerick last month. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Surprised many with an improved performance in a Limerick maiden hurdle on St Stephens Day to finish third of 17 behind Buckie Cullen. Could be capable of a big run.

Well held and no impression in a couple of handicap hurdle starts to date. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.

Couple of respectable efforts in bumpers in the summer but has been completely of his hurdling game in three dour efforts since October. Looks a tall order on form shown.

1-25 over hurdles. Place claims at her best, but clearly not easy to win with and recent efforts less than convincing.

Respected chaser who has landed eight of his 42 starts over fences but isn't getting any younger and is very much inferior over hurdles.

Placed three time from eight starts over hurdles but looks exposed as ordinary and improvement needed for the mare to break her duck over timber. Other more convincing.

Winner of a Wexford 2m6½f handicap hurdle in October off a 5lb lower mark. Well held in a couple of starts since and may need to drop to winning mark before consideration again.

Sole victory in 45 Rules starts came at Fakenham three years ago when in the care of trainer John Jenkins. Difficult to see any light at the end of the losing tunnel in this contest.

Showed some form back in 2012 but this veteran has shown nothing in four starts since return from a five year absence and is hard to fancy here.

Won her maiden hurdle in November at Thurles over 2m7f on good to firm. Well held since over fences and hurdles. May struggle on these terms.

Three-time French Flat winner has not converted that form in nine, generally, desolate hurdle starts since joining new connections. Very little to be positive about.

Has generally struggled since returning to the track in July last year, disappointing connections in a number of poor efforts over hurdles. One to watch in the market making stable debut.

Sole hurdle win in 13 starts was in a Downpatrick handicap off a 3lb lower mark in July last year before being well beaten in six starts since. Needs to improve significantly.

Much improved performance last time out in a Fairyhouse handicap hurdle over 3m on New Years Day following a number of poor efforts in October. Market likely to be best guide here.

Forecast

Global Racing (9/4), Cher Why Not (9/2), Holy Motivation (9/1), Capture The Drama (10/1), Lady Writer (11/1), Star Of Oscar (14/1), Court Adjourned (14/1), Shipwreck (16/1), Olive D'haguenet (16/1), Beeper's Ruby (20/1), Watching Brief (20/1), Our Native Land (20/1), Kinnagoe Boy (25/1), Galuppi (25/1), Presenting Thewest (25/1), Instant Smile (28/1), Caerleon Kate (33/1), Shabra's Bertolini (33/1), Kilcolman Dj (50/1), The B (50/1)

Verdict

Improved performance in a Limerick maiden hurdle on St Stephens Day to finish third of 17 behind Buckie Cullen, can see LADY WRITER continue his development landing the spoils here in a weak looking contest. Any repeat of his third of 12 at Fairyhouse earlier in the month will see Cher Why Not involved at the business end of proceedings, while Global Racing looks the best of the rest.
