611-12OR: 109C
12/1

Record reads 2-14 over timber having been pulled up at Gowran Park last month. Capable of acting on a decent surface, cheekpieces are added here and perhaps former course winner can benefit from dropping into this class.

Originally fetched 390,000 gns as a yearling and is a former C&D winner in April 2017 (soft to heavy). Has run well over 2m on good ground on the Flat, but poor showing in that sphere at Galway in October and back from a break now.

Long-standing maiden under rules (22 runs) and has been toiling of late over fences. Doesn't make any major appeal now reverting to hurdles once again.

Mare won a 24-runner Cork maiden hurdle over 2m (good) on debut in November. Poor both starts since however, including handicap bow at Limerick (2m, soft to heavy) in December. Perhaps better suited on this ground, may offer more.

Has shown fair ability recently including a win on handicap debut last month off a mark of 99. That was over 2m and since been pulled up tackling this trip off this rating. Also questions to be answered on good ground.

Modest and starting to look regressive on the Flat, he's shown promise in four starts since going over timber, all of them at 2m. Retains scope for doing better on second handicap start if seeing out this longer trip.

Now nine-years-old, he gained all three hurdles wins (3-17) during the spring of 2015, including a course win over 2m. Dropped down the handicap of late, but likely would settle for place money at best.

Scorpion gelding who cost £50,000 at the April sales following an impressive point-to-point win a month earlier. Bumper winner at Roscommon in October though yet to truly convince with his jumping in three hurdles starts. Handicap bow here.

Modest form in a number of point-to-point starts before four fairly innocuous maiden hurdle runs since November. Goes handicapping now, must improve significantly in order to get a blow in.

Winner over hurdles at Wexford in May (2m, soft) off a mark of 95 but has gone the wrong way since. Tailed off on chase bow in December. Makes little appeal at the moment despite being back within 2lb of winning mark.

Low-mileage under rules and remains a maiden. Perhaps needed the run on handicap bow at Limerick (2m5f, soft) over Christmas, but still left with lots to work now with cheekpieces added.

Left previous form well behind when 25/1 winner of C&D handicap last month. Gone up 5lb for that success and needs a career-best to add follow up. In the mix however.

Five-race maiden hurdler, including a fall and unseat. Goes up in distance for this handicap debut, requiring a chunk of improvement to get competitive.

Mare is a 22-race maiden including 12 defeats over hurdles. Not the most consistent of sorts and looked to be up against it having folded tamely over this trip at Leopardstown in December. Tongue tie added.

Running well on the Flat but remains a 12-race maiden hurdler and overall record over timber casts doubt on her. Unseated rider last month at Punchestown when challenging at the last, so clearly not to be discounted.

Five-race maiden over timber, was pitched in deep on handicap bow at Leopardstown (2m4f, good) in December. This perhaps less competitive, but will require a step forward seemingly.

Betting

Forecast

Castletown Quary (11/4), Ragin Cajun (13/2), Father Jed (7/1), Ceatharlach (8/1), Bog War (8/1), Buttons And Bows (10/1), De Mazzaro (11/1), Emily Square (12/1), Misty Millie (12/1), Aa Bee See (14/1), Duke's Girl (16/1), Pegase Amour (16/1), Classic Concorde (20/1), Secret Cargo (20/1), Classic Escape (20/1), Officers Mess (25/1), King's War (25/1), Mollyella (25/1), Wolfofallstreets (25/1)

Verdict

Father Jed caused a shock here last month when scoring over C&D. That left his previous form after a layoff well behind and he should run another solid race, though perhaps the 5lb hike will stop the follow up. Buttons And Bows may improve on better ground while former course winner Misty Millie drops in class and could get competitive. Emily Square was in with a shout before unseating late on at Punchestown last time and can go well with a repeat performance and no accidents but DE MAZZARO ran well on handicap bow at the same track last month and, with mark unchanged, could be up to winning this open finale if seeing out the trip.
