511-12OR: BF
5/2

Off the mark on fifth bumper start before pulling up when bursting blood vessels on hurdling debut at Wexford when last seen in September. Given plenty of time to recuperate and one for the shortlist.

Tough and genuine sort on the AW for trainer Mark Johnston, winning over similar distances. Worth a check in the betting, but likely handicaps are to be more of the So You Think geldings thing in future.

511-12OR:
4/1

Got off the mark for connections at the seventh time of asking on the AW in December winning over 1m4f. Second of eight at Dundalk latest over 2m and a leading player on hurdling debut.

511-4OR:
4/1

By Born King and a half-brother to winning jumper Flight Zero. Nothing of note in a couple of maiden hurdle starts to date. Tough to see where improvement is coming from to play a part in the finish.

611-4OR:
8/1

Impressive winner of a couple of point-to-points including by 30L on yielding ground at Bandon in February last year. No impression after three out on hurdling debut last month in a Tramore maiden. Needs to improve significantly.

Lord Shanakill gelding. Half-brother to several Flat winners, including smart sprinter Kuaicoss and useful sprinter Ritual. Beaten 57L on hurdling debut in June and subsequently pulled up in a Point-to-point when last seen in January. Hard to fancy.

50/1

Gelding by Dubai Destination out of a Saints Des Saints mare. Hard to make a case for on the overall evidence in a number of below par point-to-point starts since the turn of the year.

3/1

Largely well held, despite the finishing positions, in a number of maiden hurdle defeats between May and August last year. Off the track since then so fitness can only be taken on trust.

Betting

Forecast

Hammerstein (5/2), Sticky Situation (3/1), Big King (4/1), Marine One (4/1), Definite Dilemma (8/1), Mambo Dancer (12/1), Right Destination (50/1), Golden Birch (66/1)

Verdict

HAMMERSTEIN for trainer, Gordon Elliott has been given plenty of time since bursting blood vessels in September. The potentially exciting hurdler can get off the mark here at the expense of the Denis Hogan trained and ridden, Marine One on hurdling debut. Definite Dilema and Big King could improve enough to hit the frame.
