11/2

2m6f Tramore winner (good) in August, when 16lb lower. Still competitive in a number of starts since over the larger obstacles but has not been seen since October and rates a leading contender here.

Runs around this trip looks his best and first time hood needs to bring about improvement. Not ruled out but a number of recent below par runs to shake off.

711-3OR:
15/8

Two race maiden over the larger obstacles. Closing up on the inside in fifth in a nine runner Limerick contest when hampered and unseated rider five out when last seen in December. Likely to improve and worth considering.

611-0OR:
6/1

Promising fourth of 12 beaten 14L over C&D on St Stephens day on chasing introduction but broke blood vessels next time out at Fairyhouse in January. Given time to recover and holds leading claims here.

Nothing show in hurdles career and on sole start over fences since returning from a long layoff to merit suggestion a win is looming, easily overlooked for now.

9/2

Drop back in trip appeared to suit when finishing second of seven beaten 8L in a Fairyhouse beginners chase last month. Step back up in trip may not suit and probably best watched unless the market suggests otherwise for Champion Hurdle winning yard

Betting

Forecast

Crossed My Mind (15/8), Great Khan (3/1), Global Racing (9/2), Mill Quest (11/2), Biddy The Boss (6/1), Darcy Mcgees (33/1)

Verdict

The J P McManus-owned CROSSED MY MIND can continue the winning thread of the owner this week and get off the mark over the larger obstacles at the third time of asking. The Beneficial gelding can get the better of the Gordon Elliott-trained Mill Quest who can transpire to be the biggest danger ahead of Great Khan, under Gold Cup winning jockey Paul Townend.
