25/1

Used to have a decent strike rate over hurdles but those stats have taken a bit of a hit in a couple of disappointing efforts last month. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Distance winner of a Thurles maiden hurdle in January before finding the step in to novice company too much when finishing seventh of nine last month at Limerick. Others preferred for win purposes.

Winner of one of his nine start over hurdles but has hit the frame on a further six occasions. Ran well in defeat at Clonmel on Thursday and is worthy of consideration on a quick return for inform yard.

Off the mark in a maiden at Thurles prior to finding 2m4f beyond him here in February when beaten over 15L finishing fifth of 14 on good to yielding ground. Any market move would be worth noting dropping back down in trip.

Has been in some competitive company and came good when winning with a little bit in hand over C&D last month beating six rivals 2¾L. Not disgraced at Ascot last month behind Legal History over a similar trip. Likeable type who should be in the mix.

Six-race maiden hurdler for a yard currently having a quiet time of it. Well held in three starts since the turn of the year and needs to improve on even his best form to take a hand here.

Verdict

Wide open contest to open up proceedings which could go to the Tony Martin- trained THE MOUSE DOCTOR for a yard who have a consistent record in handicap hurdle at this meeting in the last four years. The trainer also runs, Acclamatio and Mr Jacaranda who are worth a check in the market. Jon Ess was not disgraced in a Leopardstown maiden behind Supreme novices hurdle winner Klassical Dream in December and could emerge as the biggest danger, while Quantatmental for champion hurdle winning yard of Gavin Cromwell and Pairc Na Ngael are worthy of consideration.
