7/1

Gallant and popular veteran who won a Naas handicap hurdle last month off a 6lb lower mark. Fourth of 15 beaten 3¾L at Fairyhouse last month and holds strong place claims here.

Disappointing maiden hurdler well held in four starts since the turn of the year. Unlikely to make any waves on handicap debut and others look open to more improvement.

Without a win in eight handicap starts but signs of promise last month when finishing seventh of 15 beaten a little over 8L on good ground. Improved effort would not surprise in first-time blinkers.

Disputing third place on handicap debut at here last month before weakening after two out and fading to finish sixth of 17. Step up in trip not sure to suit.

Signs of improvement last month when finishing fifth of 17 beaten 14L on handicap debut here over the extended 2m trip. Can't be ruled out looking at the full card.

Slotted into the handicap division well as highlighted by his second of 20 beaten a neck behind Goose Man at Navan over 2m4f last month. Fourth place Lady Writer has gone on to win at Punchestown on Sunday. One of the more likely types.

Placed three times in point-to-points but has generally struggle in a number of maiden hurdle starts despite the finishing positions since September. Has a bit to prove on handicap debut.

Not seen since finishing down the field in a Punchestown handicap hurdle in May 2016. Hard to construct much of a case for the gelding on return to action.

Game sort who deservedly got off the mark at the 10th time of asking for connections over hurdles in a Kilbeggan 2m4f handicap in August. Beaten since when last seen in September but likely to run well once again with interesting jockey engagement.

Enterprising effort in attempting to win 2m Thurles maiden hurdle from the front, ultimately finishing 3L fourth of seven in November. Still in touch when falling three out last month and is worthy of consideration once again with notable pilot.

Return to hurdling in December failed to bring about an improved performance and hard to recommend in midst of poor sequence and on return to action.

C&D winner on his only visit here in March beating nine rivals 2¼L off a similar mark. Well held since in five stars and is left with something to prove on the balance of his form since December.

Well held in three maiden hurdle starts before disappointing on handicap debut at Limerick when last seen in December finishing 10th of 17 beaten 24L. Needs to bounce back in a big way to have a say here.

14/1

Second of 10 beaten a little over 2L on handicap debut at Tramore over 12 months ago appears to be her best handicap form given the manner of a number of defeats since including at Limerick in December. Others look open to more improvement.

50/1

Poor 80-rated handicap hurdler who had been running well in a number of point-to-point appearances prior to being put in his place last month at Limerick. Pulled up latest and has plenty to find in this company.

10-race maiden without success in seven starts over timber. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here on first start for over two years.

Poor form in a series of dismal efforts including four heavy defeats since October. Even his best form would probably leave him short of what is required.

Betting

Forecast

Bothar Dubh (6/4), Time And Times (7/1), All About Alfie (7/1), Time Is Time (8/1), Taggle Og (12/1), Belle West (12/1), Mlily (14/1), West Is Best (14/1), Goulane Jessie (14/1), Bantiss Jack (16/1), Scaramucci (20/1), Wilde Breeze (33/1), Analyse That (33/1), Currig's Girl (33/1), Kilcolman Dj (33/1), My Forever Friend (50/1), Spirit Of Afection (50/1)

Verdict

Second of 20 beaten a neck behind Goose Man at Navan over 2m4f last month BOTHAR DUBH can get off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking. The fourth place in the Navan contest Lady Writer has gone on to win at Punchestown on Sunday rubber stamping a solid run to come from the Malinas gelding. Time Is Time the mount of Jamie Codd and the Derek O'Connor ridden Belle West can be expected to run their races while top weight All About Alfie is another to consider.
