Has underachieved in both starts on return from a setback. Has been off another couple of months since a poor run at Limerick.

Comfortable winner of a minor race at Uttoxeter in 2017 and lightly raced since. Has ground conditions in his favour but others looked more reasonably treated

Ruined his chances with mistakes when fancied for his handicap debut. Will appreciate the return to 2m4f and hard to rule out.

Related to four winners and a possible improver on handicap debut having shown promise in two of his three starts.One to note in the market.

Gave 8lb and a beating to a subsequent 122-rated hurdler when landing a French bumper. Interesting off this mark on handicap debut.

Poor form in Point-to-points but exceeded market expectations when fourth on hurdles bow at Tramore (2m, soft) on New Year's Day. Has failed to back that up in three runs since.

Ordinary point-to-point form and has looked one paced in each of his starts under rules. Initial mark on handicap debut looks demanding.

Looks capable of finding a small race somewhere over hurdles on the pick of her efforts in bumpers before an eye-catching fourth behind Lackaneen Leader. Good effort after a break last time but another three months on the sidelines is a concern.

Both victories have come on second start following a break. Has clearly been rested with a spring campaign in mind so possibly one to watch with a view to next time.

Has produced two big runs at Fairyhouse this year and he will not mind these slower conditions. Weighted to give another good account.

Best effort came in a Limerick maiden hurdle over Christmas. However, that was a weak affair and she looks a few pounds too high in the weights here.

Finished runner-up to Father Jed before bolting up last time. Conditions are a lot slower here and present a major concern given he is considered more of a summer horse.

Lightly raced for one of his age and his trainer has done well to get him to the course in top condition for his last four starts. Hard to rule out another bold show.

Her point-to-point form promised more than she has been able to deliver so far. In capable hands but hard to recommend on what she has done lately.

Has shown little in maiden company and on handicap debut last month. Significant improvement will be required in order to figure.

Landed a gamble on heavy ground at Tramore last year and had not really had conditions to suit since. Better effort last time and there's probably even more to come with conditions a lot softer.

Had shown nothing in three previous starts but still came in for support on handicap debut last month when getting no further than the first.

Fetched £40,000 after landing a Point-to-point last spring. Has shown nothing over hurdles or fences since and others are more appealing.

Running well in defeat in a number of handicap hurdle starts since November. Weighted to go close and experienced professional replaces a claimer.

Betting

Forecast

Dark Decade (5/1), Ask David (5/1), Fourina (5/1), Crack On Corrie (8/1), Father Jed (11/1), Dos Gardenias (11/1), Encore Lui (12/1), Global Fert (14/1), Niccolai (14/1), Dynamic Allen (14/1), Soul Season (16/1), Mollyella (16/1), Thegoaheadman (22/1), Riverdene (25/1), Wild Rumour (28/1), Mill Forge (33/1), Exit To The West (33/1), Golden Glen (33/1), Keep Standing (50/1), Shanroe Al C (50/1)

Verdict

Several possibilities in this with Niccolai and Dark Decade representing big yards with the latter open to improvement at this trip. Crack On Corrie and Father Jed have been running well lately and should figure, whilst Encore Lui could show more now handicapping judged on a winner laden pedigree. Soul Season still retains a lot of ability whilst French bumper winner Dos Gardenias could be thrown in if able to reproduce that standard. FOURINA makes most appeal with conditions turning favourable and having indicated a return to form last time
