8/1

Winner of a 2m bumper at Hexham on final start for trainer Noel Kelly in May. Not disgraced on second start for new connections in a Listed bumper at Fairyhouse on Sunday. Worth a market check on hurdling debut.

Daughter of Oscar out of a Bach mare. Dam unraced half-sister to Champion bumper winner Dunguib. Sixth of nine beaten 29L during a sketchy round of jumping on hurdling debut in a Leopardstown maiden last month. Hard to make a case for the mare.

Cloudings mare who won a point-to-point in January. Fifth of 13 beaten 65L in a Limerick maiden on hurdling debut before an improved performance at Thurles on good ground last month, beaten 6L behind Iconic Lady. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Daughter of Getaway out of a Mister Lord mare. Nothing of note in a couple of dismal bumper efforts and on hurdling debut since February. Has plenty to prove at present.

Seven-race maiden on the Flat, her career has been blighted by prolonged absences. Well down the field at Fairyhouse on Sunday beaten over 122L. Hasn't shown enough to be of interest.

No signs of any light at the end of the tunnel on return to action last month finishing 67L adrift of the winner, Kilbarry Lilly in a Leopardstown 2m4f maiden hurdle on soft ground.

Nicely bred Walk In The Park mare cost £200,000 at Aintree Sales last April. Running well in defeat in a number of starts over timber since February including finishing fourth of 19 at Fairyhouse on Sunday. Should be a leading player in this company

62-rated handicapper on the Flat finished sixth of 18 beaten 9L at Navan over 1m5f last month. Nothing of note in a couple of maiden hurdle starts to date. Well below par form looks set to continue.

Jim Bolger-trained filly by Vocalised out of a Lil's Boy mare. One from seven 59-rated handicapper on the Flat and looks a type who may need more time over jumps.

5/4

Two runs in France before joining current yard. Fine fourth to Sir Erec on debut at Leopardstown in December. Fifth of 16 beaten 22L when sent off the 6/5 favourite in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle over 2m in February. Leading contender.

410-6OR:
9/4

Solid and consistent filly had been going up the handicap without getting her head in front on the Flat last season and when finishing fifth of 12 beaten 4¾L behind Lachet at Leopardstown this month. Encouraging debut over hurdles in March.

Filly by Jeremy out of a Shantou mare. Modest four race maiden on the Flat and well held in as many starts over timber. Overall record casts doubt on her ability to get competitive here.

Second Reserve: Filly by Oscar out of a Flemensfirth mare. Sister to the useful hurdler The Hollow Ginge. Market likely to be the best guide if making the contest.

Third Reserve: Flemensfirth mare out of a useful hurdles/chase winner. Sixth of 13 beaten 81L on debut in a Limerick 2m5f maiden hurdle last month. More needed here.

Betting

Forecast

Andalusa (5/4), Bercasa (9/4), Little Light (10/3), Takeittothelimits (6/1), Dollys Destination (8/1), Dualla Time (14/1), Carol's Return (33/1), Broomfield's Oscar (40/1), Eddies Pride (40/1), Haunting Vocals (50/1), West Copake (50/1), Flying Mary (50/1), Jeremy's Delight (66/1), Palmones (66/1), Shes Gold (100/1), Gotta Getaway (100/1), Kiltormer (100/1), Rosmarine (100/1)

Verdict

The Willie Mullins-trained ANDALUSA can land the opener for connections getting off the mark at the fourth time of asking following a couple of disappointments over hurdles since January. The step up in trip will suit the Martaline filly and she can see off the attentions of Little Light, Takeittothelimits and potential improver Bercasa.
