1111-13OR: 101CD
6/4

Beat Roxyfet 15L here when making all over C&D last time. Up 10lb for that, so should find this tougher, but can't discount a follow-up success.

611-12OR: 100D
7/1

Debut winner of both an Irish point-to-point and then a bumper. 0-6 over hurdles, however, and two wind operations hint at issues. Well held on chase debut last time, but hard to totally dismiss with headgear fitted and champion on board.

C&D winner last month, but was a well beaten favourite from this mark back here behind Jokers And Rogues last time. Bit to prove after that.

911-2OR: 90CD
9/2

Standing dish here over the years, running numerous good races and winning five times. Better on slower ground than this, and also has 15L to find with Jokers And Rogues from last time, but not written off.

Finished over 5L behind Trooblue here last month, and meets her on 5lb better terms this time. That was a promising debut, and if he can improve for it he could go close this time.

Well held behind both Trooblue here two starts ago and then Jokers And Rogues last time. Can only watch.

25/1

Debut Irish point-to-point winner in 2015, but 0-10 under rules and this looks tough enough on what we have seen from here, from 1lb 'wrong'.

Pulled up on both previous chase runs last June and well held in all completed starts back over hurdles since. Tongue-tie now goes on, but hard to fancy until we see signs of ability.

1310-0OR: 71CD
40/1

Veteran C&D winner, who has also scored here over further. Goes well on a sound surface. Ability looks to be on the wain this season, but showed enough here last time to suggest that we can't rule him out of the frame from 3lb 'wrong'.

Moderate veteran, who is 5lb 'wrong' here and even if at his best, has no better than frame claims.

0-41. Was a 21L third behind Jokers And Rogues and Roxyfet here last month, but pulled up since, 12lb out of the handicap, and others are preferred.

200/1

Poor form over fences and beaten 59L here by Jokers And Rogues last time. Readily opposed from 13lb 'wrong'.

Betting

Forecast

Jokers And Rogues (6/4), Roxyfet (9/2), Newquay Cards (6/1), Trooblue (6/1), Don Des Fosses (7/1), Ringaringarosie (22/1), Kilcullen Lady (25/1), Gin Cobbler (40/1), Leonasisland (40/1), Duhallowcountry (50/1), Bertielicious (66/1), Rapid Fritz (200/1)

Verdict

Very moderate fayre and while a repeat of the trailblazing win by Jokers And Rogues here last month can't be discounted, he is not the best at following up previous wins, and a 10lb rise will make it tougher. Therefore, we will take a chance on NEWQUAY CARDS, who showed promise here on debut and might be able to improve enough to win this time. Trooblue and Don Des Fosses are not ruled out.
  1. Newquay Cards
  2. Don Des Fosses
  3. Jokers And Rogues
