511-11OR:
8/1

By Stowaway out of an Indian Danehill mare. Cost €23,000 as a three-year-old. Promising third of 17 beaten 3L behind Rakhine State on hurdling debut and improved performance would not surprise.

Gelding by Scorpion out of a Luso who cost €12,000 as a three-year-old. Dam unraced sister to dual Thyestes chase winner Preist's Leap and to dam of staying hurdle favourite Paisley Park. Best watched on debut unless the market suggests otherwise.

611-10OR:
11/4

Eight race maiden without a win in four starts over hurdles. Not disgraced in most recent starts hitting the frame at Gowran Park and earlier this month at Naas. Big run expected to confirm a Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices' hurdle entry.

511-7OR:

By Morozov closely related to bumper/2m5f hurdle winner Hot Whiskey N Ice. Well beaten and no impression in a couple of starts this month and is hard to enthuse over in this company.

511-4OR:
5/1

Daughter of Jeremy bought for €21,000 as a three-year-old. Five race maiden hurdler but has to be treat with respect from a yard who have a 50% win and place strike rate at this meeting since 2015.

611-1OR:
4/5

Off the mark at the seventh time of asking in a Punchestown bumper over 2m2f in December and bounced back from a disappointing run last month when finishing fourth of 24 at Naas over 2m3f at Naas. One of the more likely types.

511-0OR:

Nothing of note in three career maiden hurdle starts to date and looks out of his depth in this company.

410-10OR:
50/1

Gelding by Le Fou out of an Oscar mare. Half-brother to three winners, including useful sort Marinero and hurdler Tellthemnuttin. Market likely to reveal expectations on debut.

Betting

Forecast

Tens Or Better (4/5), Chavi Artist (11/4), Jeremys Dream (5/1), Castlebellingham (8/1), Big Tree (16/1), Farranreigh (33/1), Fou Diligence (50/1), Dubaimolly (100/1)

Verdict

Presenting gelding CHAVI ARTIST holds an entry in the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices' hurdle and can confidently approach the race on the back of a big run here following a number of solid efforts at Gowran Park and Naas since the turn of the year. Tens Or Better, winner of a Punchestown bumper in December looks to be an improving sort and along with Gordon Elliott's Jeremys Dream can hit the frame in the opener.
