511-12OR:
14/1

Took a big step forward at Thurles when ridden up with the pace. May have done better but for pecking two out and he should have a modest race such as this within his capabilities.

Failed to complete on sole point-to-point start and pulled up on first outing over hurdles. Hard to fancy in this company.

511-12OR:

Supported when showing much improved form at Clonmel. Looked as though he may want a bit further than this, but he has shown more than most in this lineup and small yard have their horses going well.

Sent off an odds-on favourite last time but beaten 39L. Had promised better at Thurles and he is becoming frustrating. Looks capable but equally hard to predict.

Needs to improve on prior efforts over hurdles. Didn't manage to achieve much on the Flat at Galway when last seen in August.

Took on the likes of Samcro and Summerille Boy as a first season novice but he has been frustrating since. Not helped by his jumping last time and hard to be confident he can take advantage of what looks a good opportunity.

Placed second in a point-to-point on yielding-to-soft ground in April last year. Has barely beaten a rival under rules and makes little appeal.

By Lord Of England out of a German mare related to an Italian Group 1 winner. Top yard 28-87 with hurdlers here over past five years and the market ought to be informative.

66/1

Stamina-laden pedigree for this son of Westerner out of dam of Scottish National winner Joe Farrell. Chasing looks his game in due course so will be surprise if he makes a wining bow over timber, though betting should reveal more.

Showed some promise on debut but beaten huge margins in three starts since and hard to fancy on this occasion.

€26,000 son of Presenting out of an unraced half-sister to a 2m-3m1f hurdles and chase winner and a 2m2f-2m6f chase winner. Has soon come under pressure on first three starts and, although this trip will help, he has an awful lot to find.

Obvious claims on the face value of his November third to Monbeg Worldwide. Last three efforts suggest that flatters him but this return to a shorter trip may see some improvement.

Point-to-point form was moderate and soo too is the value of the form of his three efforts under rules.

711-12OR:

By Robin Des Pres out of an unraced dam. Yard do well with their small string but would not be expected to have something forward enough to score on debut.

A €56,000 three-year-old, No Risk At All gelding. Half-brother to multiple winners, including fairly useful chaser Torpille d'Ainay. Runner-up on first two starts and ran as tough something was amiss last time. Makes hurdling debut.

Showed signs of greenness and promise on debut but has failed to progress since. Hurdling debut here and looks the stable's second string.

611-5OR:

Won a Listowel bumper on heavy ground last season but well beaten since including when a 66/1 chance last time. That probably sums up her chances in a similar contest here.

Jumped better last time but ultimately he was not quick enough and that is likely to be the problem here. (Third reserve)

Betting

Forecast

Debuchet (1/1), Cosmo's Moon (4/1), Future Monarch (9/2), Poker D'Ainay (7/1), Monition (12/1), Brog Ahaon (14/1), Chapati (20/1), Dasmyhoss (25/1), Time For An Oscar (33/1), Yendo (50/1), Lessofdnegativity (66/1), Sand Fly (66/1), Ballinlongig (66/1), Lough Gur (66/1), Live Every Day (100/1), Cahir Abbey Tavern (100/1), Muyam Spirit (100/1), Pass Cross (100/1), Dubai Outlaw (100/1), Eat The Book (N/A), Ontheropes (N/A)

Verdict

Willie Mullins may hold the key here with Future Monarch making appeal on his pedigree and Poker D'Ainay on his first two bumper starts. There may have been something amiss last time and it could pay to side with Paul Townend on this one. Debuchet and Cosmo's Moon are proving disappointing to say the least, but Monition has claims on his November efforts if the drop back in trip pays off. Chapati and BROG AHAON both showed significantly more last time with the selection promising there would be better to come over these extra three furlongs.
