611-12OR:
9/1

Clonmel bumper winner towards the end of the year but failed to build on initial promise of runner-up finish at Punchestown (2m, good) in two further starts over this trip. Jury is out for now, despite connections.

By excellent jumps sire Milan closely related to bumper and 2m5f-3m hurdle winner Enniscoffey Oscar. Well held in bumper here in January (soft) and no impact upped in distance for hurdles bow since at Naas (2m3f, good to yielding; 100-1).

811-12OR:

Runner-up in soft-ground Limerick bumper in December on rules bow, filled the same berth on hurdles debut at Gowran Park (2m, soft) this month sporting a first-time tongue tie (retained). Looks likely to appreciate this longer journey.

Sent off 100-1 for a maiden hurdle at Naas over 2m last month on rules bow and never able to threaten, others readily preferred again.

611-12OR: 118BF
6/1

Dual bumper winner, ran best race (from five) over timber when close second at Listowel (3m, good) in September having seemingly relished step up in distance. Runner-up again over 2m4f at Gowran a month later, though did look very one-paced.

611-12OR:

Best effort (from four) over hurdles came at Naas over 2m3f on good to yielding in November when second to Borderline Chatho. Falls either side of that effort don't inspire confidence however.

Gelding by Stowaway out of an Old Vic mare. Faller on sole point-to-point start in December and beaten a long way in Thurles bumper last month on rules bow. Best watched for now.

Morozov gelding from an unraced dam. Market should reveal more on first foray to the track.

By Flemensfirth out of a dam who was a maiden hurdler. Sports a tongue-tie on debut and market should provide solid guide as to what is expected.

511-11OR:
33/1

Signs of ability in two starts so far including when 29L sixth on hurdles debut at Punchestown (2m4f, good-to-yielding) last month. Possible improver in what looks a weakish contest.

611-5OR:

Beat a modest lot when taking a point-to-point in a slow time. Has a nice pedigree and this is not the most competitive of races in which to makes rules bow, betting check demanded.

611-5OR:
66/1

Won a Listowel bumper (2m, heavy) with a fair bit seemingly up her sleeve all the way back in September 2017, but has run only twice since. No impact on hurdles bow at the same venue last summer, makes debut for new trainer here.

511-4OR:

Golden Lariat filly. Dam, ran twice over hurdles, 7f/1m winner on the Flat. Tailed off at Fairyhouse in a 2m bumper in December on rules bow. First-time hood is retained for hurdles introduction.

Getaway mare, pulled up three times in four-race point-to-point career so far, sports first-time cheekpieces now going under rules with a bit to prove.

Betting

Forecast

La Tektor (6/5), School Boy Hours (6/4), Macgiloney (6/1), Acronym (9/1), Lord Schnapps (20/1), Lessofdnegativity (25/1), Stellar Stow (25/1), Spoken For (33/1), Bay Ambition (33/1), Marshalled (50/1), Sand Fly (66/1), Comeragh Lad (66/1), Ballyboy Bridge (100/1), Aspire To Fly (150/1), Sexandthecity (150/1), Stowvic (200/1)

Verdict

LA TEKTOR has settled for second best in both starts under rules, a Limerick bumper and over hurdles at Gowran Park last month. Soft ground won't be a concern for Tony Martin's charge and the longer trip offered here may also be a plus. He can make it third time lucky. Rules debutant Bay Ambition could have a say, while the likes of Spoken For and Acronym are potential improvers. Macgiloney has some form in the book, but might prefer racing over further.
