611-12OR:
100/1

Poor form in a couple of maiden hurdle starts last month including a 57L defeat at Fairyhouse on yielding ground. Easy to look elsewhere.

711-12OR:

Nothing of note on first start for over 18 months when finishing 10th of 16 beaten 56L here over 2m3½f last month. Hard to see him making any significant impact.

Possibly needed the experience on debut in a Tramore bumper in October but has shown very little in a couple of maiden hurdle starts since November. Others appear to have more scope for improvement.

611-12OR:
40/1

Has been left toiling in a couple of maiden hurdle starts at Fairyhouse and Thurles over 2m so in in their short careers and will need to improve a bundle to play a role in this contest.

611-12OR:
9/10

Five race maiden but his third of 16 beaten 8L here last month over 2m3½f puts him in the mix against some rivals. Yard hold a 27% strike rate with their runners at the venue in February since 2016.

Has disappointed connections in a couple of starts at point-to-point and maiden hurdle level. Impossible to fancy on form to hand up against some of these rivals.

By Stowaway out of an Indian Danehill mare. Cost €23,000 as a three-year-old. Possibly best watched on stable and rules debut unless the market indicates otherwise.

511-11OR:

Gelding by Perugino out of a Roselier mare. Half-brother to genuine hurdler/chaser De Benno. Unlikely to make any great waves on hurdling introduction and possibly looks one for the future.

511-11OR:

Mistakes a plenty on debut in a Naas novice hurdle on Saturday when detached and never a factor from someway out finishing seventh of nine beaten 50L. Plenty to find on that offering.

511-11OR:
66/1

Failed to finish in a couple of point-to-point starts towards the end of last year before disappointing once again at Punchestown on rules debut when never a factor and beaten 46L. Hasn't shown enough to be of interest here.

Modest 59-rated handicapper on the Flat for trainer David Lanigan. New connections hold a 27% strike rate with their runners at the venue in February since 2016. Worth a market check.

Produced a couple of inadequate runs at bumper level at the turn of the year including a 78L defeat at Naas on yielding ground over 2m3f. Very little to be positive about.

Well held when finishing down the pack in the bumper and maiden hurdle departments so far. Hard to see him making any significant impact despite leading owner.

611-5OR:

Well held in three bumper and unable to halt the poor run of form in a couple of maiden hurdle starts at Limerick and Fairyhouse. Looks a tall order on form shown.

By Mahler out of a Broken Hearted mare. Sister to genuine hurdler and decent chaser Ornua. Possibly beat watched on debut but any market move should be noted.

611-5OR:
100/1

Achieved next to nothing in a bumper and five flat races before finishing 19th of 25 beaten 68L in a Naas maiden hurdle on Saturday. Vast improvement needed to figure.

511-4OR:
5/2

Starting to show improvement around the turn of the year with possibly the soft ground to blame for lacklustre effort last month. Yard boast a 27% strike rate with their runners at the venue in February since 2016 and one to be interested in.

Forecast

Rakhine State (9/10), Jeremys Dream (5/2), Spruced Up (8/1), Retribution (10/1), Merry At Heart (12/1), Castlebellingham (16/1), Stormy Master (16/1), Automatic (20/1), Blackyellowred (20/1), Weihnachts (25/1), Farranreigh (25/1), Shes On The Rim (25/1), De Perugino (33/1), Kilcolgan Rocket (40/1), Duty Girl (50/1), Enquire (50/1), Humble Beginings (66/1), Cloughmoylepatriot (100/1), Rosmarine (100/1), Currabeha Hill (100/1), Urban Cruiser (100/1)

Verdict

Trainer Gordon Elliott currently boasts a 27% strike rate and a 42% win and place strike rate at Clonmel in February since 2016 and his RAKHINE STATE can lead home his trio of runners home to land the spoils. Stablemates, Jeremy's Dream and Retribution can emerge as the main dangers in a weak looking affair where the selection won't have to improve much on his third of 16 beaten 8L here last month over 2m3½f.
