6/1

Really consistent type that has improved steadily. Good second at Fairyhouse last time followed a similar effort at the Cheltenham open meeting the time before. Should be bang there once again.

9/2

Steadily improved with each start and made a good step forward in the first-time cheekpieces when winning well from the front at Down Royal last time. Interesting to see if he can back that up now. Player if doing so.

4/1

Won at the third time of asking over hurdles with a good success in a maiden hurdle at Naas last month. Steps up in grade now and needs a bit more but has improvement in the locker.

9/4

Off the mark in a maiden hurdle at Tramore two starts back before finding a Grade 2 a bit too much last time. Still shaped with promise for the future there and not easily dismissed here despite needing more.

9/2

Point winner who got off the mark over hurdles at Tramore on New Years Day. Plenty more needed here to be winning this but should be more improvement to come.

6/1

Awarded race after finishing second over 2m6f on hurdles debut at Punchestown in November. Not been at his best since but conditions here are no problem and doesn't have too much to find.

Betting

Forecast

Harrie (9/4), Dream Conti (4/1), Notebook (9/2), Denwork (9/2), Go Another One (6/1), Satoshi (6/1)

Verdict

A tight little contest that can go the way of DENWORK. Off the mark switched to front-running tactics in the first-time cheekpieces last time, he can follow-up here. Go Another One will not go down without a fight and is feared. Notebook still has improvement in him.
  1. Denwork
  2. Go Another One
