10/1

Confirmed potential shown when fourth to Ballymore winner City Island on hurdles bow by following up here over 2m next. Interesting decision to go up to 3m for handicap bow but half-brother Red Rising stayed. Major claims.

Very ordinary strike rate having won three of 37 career starts and no factor in two starts in 2019. Easily swerved here.

Only hurdle win in 2016 (won over fences in 2017) and flopped latest after two decent fourths beforehand including here over 2m4f. Bounce back would offer place possibilities.

Dual-winner over fences but four hurdle races so far less than persuasive (12th of 19 last time over timber). Chases remain best chances.

Looked a useful sort when winning well at Galway in September and ran a couple more good races after in handicaps. Last two efforts disappointing but hard to believe she can't get competitive soon off this mark.

Likable veteran but generally well held looking one paced on more than one occasion in five starts since the turn of the year. Others of greater appeal.

Rejuvenated since joining this yard and followed two good seconds with a win here latest (all over fences). Back hurdling here off a 12lb lower mark than now over fences he makes a great deal of appeal as well handicapped.

Won her maiden hurdle at Tramore in August but form has been a little hit and miss since including desperate 22nd of 25 last time out. Risky proposition.

Ran well in last three of four hurdle races this season with second over 3m at Fairyhouse and third over 2m4f at Gowran last twice both excellent efforts. Booking of Townend again a massive plus and leading claims.

Makes little appeal based on four dismal maiden hurdles and on handicap debut earlier this month over beaten 28L. Has a bit to prove at present.

3m Tipperary winner in October has ran well in four of her six subsequent starts. Midfield at Fairyhouse latest a bit disappointing but freshened up since so could well see another solid effort.

Downpatrick winner in July 2016. Has been absent for three years and will surely need this ahead of a spring campaign.

Up in trip and in level shown latest when second of seven at Tramore for all he was beaten 24L over 2m5f. Perhaps another step up can unlock more untapped potential so has each-way hopes.

Showed plenty of ability in bumpers but has not jumped well enough to make a positive contribution since going hurdling. Watching brief for now.

Forecast

Cloudy Morning (3/1), Eagle Roque (6/1), Shar Whats Therush (6/1), Freewheelin Dylan (7/1), Goodnightngodbless (8/1), An Fraoch Mor (10/1), The Last Armada (12/1), Chin'up (14/1), Static Jack (14/1), Seskinane (16/1), Presentingprincess (16/1), West Is Best (16/1), Isabel's Gold (20/1), Peterstown (25/1), Our Brian (25/1), Admiral Brian (33/1)

Verdict

There are two runner here who both make great appeal. They are recent 2m course winner AN FRAOCH MOR who is bred to be even better now upped to 3m and Cloudy Morning who won over fences here last time out yet contests this hurdle race off a 3lb lower mark. Narrow preference is for the five years younger An Fraoch Mor. Shar Whats Therush is another with very legitimate claims.
