411-7OR:
16/1

Showed promise in two starts on Flat for Mick Halford at up to 9.5f. First start over hurdles and debut for new connections but wouldn't have to be a world beater to figure if fit after six month break.

Modest maiden on Flat for Andrew Balding, best effort from four outings when runner-up in Chepstow 1m2f handicap in July. Never better than mid division and ultimately well held when 13th on hurdling bow here last month.

411-7OR:

Unplaced in all four starts on Flat but showed prmise when 11th of 28 on hurdles bow at Leopardstown in December, behind smart Sir Erec. Should strip fitter now and is one the livelier outsiders.

Some promise as a juvenile for Eve Johnson Houghton but had training issues and didn't race again on Flat. No more than average efforts so far for new handler in two starts over hurdles, latest when tongue tied for the first time.

Alkhaadem gelding makes racecourse debut. Pedigree suggests stamina should be his strong suit in time and is related to some fair NH performers. Likely to be better for this experience though.

Not much to write home about in two outings on Flat for Johnny Murtagh. Well beaten on only start so far over hurdles for current yard and much more is needed here.

Fair maiden handicapper on Flat for Mick Channon at up to 1m2f. Ran well on hurdles bow for new handler when sixth of 28 to Sir Erec at Leopardstown and looks a player of stepping up on that effort.

Showed little on Flat at up to 1m6f and struggled on first run over hurdles when distant last of 22 over C&D last month. Others readily preferred.

Fair maiden handicapper on Flat at up to 8.5f. Set to do better over timber having run well all three starts so far and wa sa good third at Punchestown latest. Sure to be on the premises once again.

411-7OR:

Placed in two of four starts on Flat for Dermot Weld, and shaped with some promise until weakening 2 out on hurdles debut at Punchestown just over six weeks ago. Stamina may be an issue but is worth considering.

Two runs in France before joining current yard. Fine fourth to Sir Erec on debut at Leopardstwon and again ran creditably when third and beaten favourite at Punchestown last time in fair event. Has solid claims.

100/1

Unplaced in 11 starts on the Flat and hinted at ability although ultimately well beaten on hurdles debut at Naas last month. Should know more now and worth monitoring for any market interest.

50/1

Regressive maiden handicapper on Flat but led for a long way on first start over hurdles at Naas, only giving way after 2 out. May do better with more patient handling and is not without a chance.

411-0OR:
66/1

Best run from seven on Flat when runner-up in Sandown 1m2f h'cap in September. Finished mid-division in fair maiden hurdle on debut and improved effort is not out of the question with that experience to draw on.

Frozen Power filly who looked slow on only start on Flat and little better in two starts so far over timber. Very hard to enthuse over.

Moderate form on Flat at up to 1m4f. Should stay but hard to see her being good enough to land this on her hurdling bow.

Betting

Forecast

Andalusa (6/5), Way Back Home (7/4), Rocky Shores (7/1), Great Vizier (12/1), Cloak Of Darkness (16/1), Flash De Clerval (16/1), Nathaniel's Dream (16/1), Swiss Cottage (25/1), Fallen Forest (33/1), Highway To Heaven (50/1), Volatile Lady (66/1), Imperial Choice (66/1), Zayriyan (80/1), Colenso (100/1), Deauville Society (100/1), Thefaithfulindian (100/1), Ten Bears (100/1), Loughmask Lad (100/1), Novel Character (100/1)

Verdict

There are a number of potential improvers in this field but ROCKY SHORES appeared to run very well on his first taste of hurdling and may prove to be a fair sort at this game. He is narrowly preffered to Andalusa who ran well but found a few too good when favourite at Punchestown last time. Way Back Home won't be far away, and Deauville Society and Highway To Heaven may do better this time, while hurdles debutants Cloak Of Darkness and Swiss Cottage are others worth keeping an eye on.
