711-12OR:
25/1

Heavy ground hurdle winner who was well backed ahead of his chase debut, when he almost unseated Ruby Walsh after a bad mistake at the first. Made mistakes last time when down the field and clear where improvement is to be found.

611-12OR: D
9/10

Third in the Champion Novice Hurdle at Punchestown last season and made a belated chase debut here last month on seasonal bow. Finished behind a better fancied stable companion but showed enough to suggest he will take some beating today.

611-12OR:
7/1

Beat the useful Monsieur Co on sole start three years ago. Connections have had to be patient but you would expect them to have to wait a little longer yet.

611-12OR:

Improved on previous displays by actually completing the course here last time, but he was still 59L behind Burrows Saint.

Maiden after 23 runs whose best efforts have come in easier races than this, but capable of taking this field along for some distance.

811-12OR:
9/4

Relentless galloper who needs testing ground. Scored by 62L last time and the runner-up is rated 125. Had entries at Cheltenham in the RSA and the 4m amateurs race so this may be too sharp on first run back from an absence.

711-12OR: D
16/1

Point, bumper and hurdle winner who had been progressive early in his career. Latest run followed a long spell on the sidelines but still leaves him with a huge deficit to find with Burrows Saint.

611-12OR:
66/1

Has shown little over hurdles and although he has a chaser's build, it is hard to see him making the progress required here.

911-12OR:

Looked a useful novice in 2016 but has faced setbacks since and he was pulled up on his comeback run. Stable jockey prefers Minella Fair.

1011-12OR:
100/1

Got within 3L of Mick Jazz over hurdles and that is the highlight of a 20-race career which remains winless. Rated well below most of these nowadays and debuts for a new yard.

Moderate hurdler makes chase debut in a new headgear combination, but previous attempts to find the key to him have been fruitless.

1011-12OR: D
66/1

Chased home a pair of useful sorts on last run over fences in August. Has been absent for five months and looks one to follow in handicaps when conditions are faster.

511-7OR:
50/1

Mixed form over hurdles and even the best of those efforts should not be good enough to trouble the principals on his chase debut.

Last RunWatch last race

511-7OR:

Has only shown occasional ability over hurdles and finished well behind a few of these on his chase debut.

811-5OR:
33/1

116-rated hurdler who relishes testing conditions. Absent 230 days since her chase debut at Tipperary and now meets better horses who are fitter.

Betting

Forecast

Burrows Saint (9/10), Minella Fair (9/4), Catwells (7/1), Rathnure Rebel (16/1), Minellafordollars (16/1), Allblak Des Places (25/1), Cowboy Des Long (25/1), Gracemount (33/1), The Big Galloper (50/1), Connard (66/1), You Can't Catch Me (66/1), Play With The Wind (66/1), Wake Up Early (100/1), Russellstown (100/1), Sizing Joshua (100/1)

Verdict

This should go to BURROWS SAINT. Willie Mullins' charge was a useful novice hurdler who had a kind introduction on his chase debut in a stronger race than this. Minellafordollars, Wake Up Early, Connard and Allblak Des Places were well behind that day. Minella Fair rates a big danger judged on his intended Cheltenham entries and a 62L victory on his last start. He has obviously met with some setbacks and there must be a doubt he will be as forward as he will need to be in order to beat the selection.
