1011-12OR: D
14/1

Classy Grade 1 winning, 169-rated hurdler in his pomp for trainer Willie Mullins, makes a somewhat belated chase debut here. Respected on past glories only.

Winner of a six-runner bumper at Leopardstown over Christmas. Unlikely to play a part in the finish on chasing debut.

Not disgraced but generally well beaten in his first two chase starts last month. Others look to be progressing at a quicker rate.

Ninth of 18 beaten 22L on a disappointing chasing debut at Naas when last seen in November. Plenty to find in this company.

Winner of the Grade 1 novice hurdle at the Punchestown festival last season and likely to be popular in the market on chasing introduction.

Will look to improve on a fine chasing debut at Naas last month finishing second of 18 behind A Plus Tard, who has since finished second in a Grade 3 contest. Leading player with stablemate biggest danger.

Fifth of 18 beaten 20L behind A Plus Tard and Duc Des Genievres at Naas last month. Looks vulnerable but could hit the frame.

Lightly raced gelding last seen finishing 29L adrift of the winner of a beginners contest here in September 2017. Looks opposable.

Has put together a couple of promising chasing displays together since last month but will have to improve once again to play a role here.

Beaten 42L on chasing debut in a Fairyhouse contest last month over 2m. Hard to construct much of a case for the gelding.

Course winner that has also won over this trip. Impressed on second chase start behind A Plus Tard at Naas last month. Another bold show looks likely.

611-12OR:

Solid and consistent finishing positions over hurdles since May including a well-deserved win at Downpatrick in August. Will need to improve on disappointing chase debut at Fairyhouse last month.

Mixed form over hurdles and well held in a couple of chase starts since last month. Has plenty to prove in this company.

Well held and never nearer in a couple of career chase starts to date. Plenty to improve on looking at evidence to hand.

Without a win in three chase starts since debut in February. Belated chasing career unlikely to get off the ground in this contest.

Distance winner who has a course success to her name. Not disgraced in a Grade 3 chase at Cork last month but vast improvement needed to figure in this contest.

Yet to start a race under rules at odds less than 66/1. Hard to fancy until the mare shows a hint of ability.

Betting

Forecast

Cilaos Emery (11/8), Duc Des Genievres (11/4), Ministerforsport (5/1), Impact Factor (10/1), Arctic Fire (14/1), Ex Patriot (16/1), High School Days (20/1), Benruben (33/1), Gurteen (33/1), Call A Cab (50/1), Charlie Stout (66/1), Indian Monsoon (66/1), Paris Texas (66/1), Veinard (66/1), Shawshank (100/1), Johnnys Girl (100/1), Play The Part (100/1)

Verdict

Cilaos Emery had the better form over hurdles than stablemate, DUC DES GENIEVRES but the geldings run behind A Plus Tard looks solid enough form to be able to land the prize in this contest. Ministerforsport, 4L and ¾L behind A Plus Tard and Duc Des Genievres at Naas, can hit the frame, while Ex Patriot could go well at a price.
