33/1

Badly out of form recently suffering heavy defeats in a number of chases, hurdles and Flat starts since April. Has work to do on current form.

Ran poorly over fences last time, but ran well in blinkers when fifth of 10 to Bay Hill at Thurles on his most recent hurdles start, and not a forlorn hope if back to that form, for all the headgear is missing now.

Largely consistent over hurdles until running below form last time. Should bounce back, but still appears too high in the weights on balance of form.

Showed a bit more promise on handicap debut, and built on that when landing a Wexford novice handicap under this rider last month. Would not not have to improve too much to produce another bold bid.

Off the mark for connections at the eighth time of asking in a Tramore maiden hurdle over 2m earlier this month beating Owenacurra Lass 7½L. Up 7lb since last handicap run, and ground will be much quicker here, but not taken lightly.

Runner-up on his last three starts between the flags, and best effort since switched to hurdles when third of 17 to British Art in conditionals' handicap at Down Royal at Christmas. Claims if ready after a break.

Bounced back from a poor run when winning 25-runner mares event at Fairyhouse last time by 1¼ lengths from Dynamic Allen. That was a career best, and she holds every chance if repeating that form.

Has rattled up a hat-trick in recent starts, defying a penalty when turned out quickly at Fairyhouse last time, although set for second when leader fell at the last. More to do having been raised a further 6lb.

Well held in qualifying runs, and again on handicap debut, but seemed to improve when mid-field off this mark at Limerick last month. Clearly needs to improve on that to figure, but that's not unrealistic.

Placed at Gowran in June and Bangor in August, but rather disappointing when favourite at Bellewstown later that month, and may need the run on his return from a winter break.

Third in a 2¾m handicap at Galway in August, but ran poorly next time, and then pulled up over fences at Tramore in December. Returns in different conditions and with something to prove.

Career best on penultimate start in a Naas handicap hurdle in February, finishing a close fourth of seven off a 1lb lower mark. Making some headway when blundering rider away at the final flight at Limerick last month. Place claims.

Much improved when beaten by the shortest of margins on handicap debut at Naas in February. Has run to a similar level in subsequent starts, and a bit better than the bare result at Limerick last time. Considered.

Betting

Forecast

Scotch Quay (5/1), Niccolai (11/2), Iknowwhereiamnow (11/2), Shimmer And Shine (13/2), Oakmont (7/1), Billy's Angel (7/1), No Way Jack (8/1), Coral Blue (10/1), Roachdale House (12/1), Back To Bataan (14/1), Ayr Of Elegance (20/1), Tashman (20/1), Keep Standing (20/1), Bye Bye O Bye (25/1), Cadougarde (25/1), The Irregular (33/1), Alfred Wegener (33/1)

Verdict

NICCOLAI has taken steps forward since sent handicapping, and Henry de Bromhead's mare is capable of defying the handicapper again having got off the mark at Wexford. Iknowwhereiamnow also produced a career-best effort when winning a big-field affair at Fairyhouse last time, and looks a big threat, with Roachdale House not dismissed having given the impression he's running his way back into form on recent starts.
