611-12OR: 95CD
4/1

Related to Irish Grand National winner Glebe Lad and relished the longer trip to score over C&D last month. Stole a march on his rivals under an astute ride that day and a 6lb rise makes a repeat so much tougher.

Yet to trouble the judge in six starts and beaten an aggregate of 132L in his first two outings in handicaps.

74-rated winner on the AW but struggled in four starts for this yard including three times over hurdles. Others make more appeal

8/1

Handicap hurdle winner on yielding ground at Naas in December and followed that up with a couple of good efforts in defeat. Bounced back from a poor effort to finish third to West Is Best here last month and there should be less between them now.

Of little account in three maiden hurdles during 2016 and tailed off on last month's return. Cheekpieces need to inspire her to reach inconceivable heights.

12/1

Won a couple over this sort of trip on good ground in 2015-16. May have needed her three runs this term but she is still a long way from being as good as she was.

Produced a big run following such a lengthy layoff when finishing third of 17 beaten 3¾L in a Clonmel handicap hurdle last month. Failed to build on that in two runs since over further and Davy Russell booked this time.

Yet to make an impression in point-to-points or in three hurdles. Beaten 63L last time and better demanded on handicap debut.

Moderate form so far in point-to-points, bumpers and over hurdles. Blinkers tried here but it will take more than that for her to score,

Modest ex-Jim Bolger maiden has shown little over hurdles. Prospect of better ground is a positive if there is any market support to back that up.

611-1OR: 84
16/1

Sold for £40,000 in May 2018 after winning a 3m Largy point-to-point for this trainer; hasn't cut the mustard under rules so far (hurdles and chases) and only becomes of interest if the market speaks in an overtly positive manner.

Produced her best run for some time at Wexford last week when looking as though she needed today's extra distance. Could prove to be a leading player.

Four runs so far have offered little encouragement and he now goes handicapping. Can be given a chance on his point-to-point form should the market show any positivity.

Has won here over fences in the past but he has failed to show a huge amount on his first two runs back from a winter break.

Ten-year-old 14-race maiden. Races off his regular mark and unlikely to find the requisite improvement in order to feature.

27-race maiden and looks up against once again despite posting fair efforts here and at Clonmel in previous two starts. Vulnerable for win purposes but could grab a place.

29-race maiden competes off this mark for the ninth consecutive race. Has only made the frame once and conditions were a lot softer that day.

Betting

Forecast

Classic Escape (4/1), West Is Best (4/1), Taggle Og (6/1), General Gold (7/1), Wilde Breeze (7/1), All About Alfie (8/1), Miss Mcilroy (8/1), Erinyes (9/1), Northern Emperor (10/1), Fu's Island (12/1), Shanroe Al C (16/1), Cadawill (25/1), Shanes Hill Glen (33/1), Milan Diva (33/1), Miracle Way (33/1), Humble Beginings (33/1), White Lotus (40/1)

Verdict

WILDE BREEZE is in the veteran stage of a relatively lightly raced career. He is yet to win but there were encouraging signs in his comeback run and two efforts over further can be forgiven. West Is Best should confirm recent form with All About Alfie and he commands respect as a recent winner. He looks more progressive than these but that victory owed a lot to a fine ride. Taggle Og ran well at Wexford last week in similar company and looked ready for this trip, but the remainder make little appeal unless supported.
