712-0OR: BFD
9/2

Winner of a point-to-point over 12 months ago, snapped up for £50,000 later in the month at the Cheltenham February sales. Likely more to come for respected connections.

11/2

Distance winner and not disgraced when finishing fifth of 11 in a Down Royal hunter chase on St Stephens day. May find this a tough assignment in a hot looking heat.

10/1

Once a beacon in this sphere, winning at Cheltenham Festival in 2012 and again in 2013. Long way below that form in the last couple of years and best avoided on his first start for 12 months.

8/1

Not seen on the track for the best part of four years but in fine form in the point-to-point field last spring. Second behind Ucello Conti on return to action last month and may have to settle for that position once again.

1112-0OR: 131CD
10/1

Winner of the 2015 Irish Grand National. Not the force of old but not disgraced in a couple of point-to-point starts since December. Course winner that has also won over the distance and one to note for new connections.

712-0OR: D
11/1

Seven-year-old son of Oscar who fetched a staggering £225,000 at Cheltenham in March 2016. Not seen since finishing second of 13 in a Punchestown hunter chase in April. Improved effort would not surprise.

11/8

Revitalised by a switch to this discipline following a point-to-point win last month before an unchallenged win in a Thurles hunter chase last time out. Major player.

Betting

Forecast

Ucello Conti (11/8), Billaway (9/2), Coastal Tiep (11/2), Sydney Paget (8/1), Salsify (10/1), Thunder And Roses (10/1), Timewaitsfornoone (11/1)

Verdict

UCELLO CONTI and Sydney Paget finished one-two in a January point-to-point and it is difficult not to see a repeat of those finishing positions here. The Gordon Elliott-trained 11-year-old has been revitalised by a switch to this discipline and can confirm superiority in this contest with the expensive Timewaitsfornoone capable of hitting the frame.
  1. Ucello Conti
  2. Sydney Paget
  3. Timewaitsfornoone
