611-7OR:
1/1

Solid and consistent winner of two of her nine starts over hurdles, hitting the frame on a further six occasions. Likely to be a leading player here with the step in to the chasing division expected to bring plenty of improvement.

Now almost three years since her lone success and five starts since moving to this yard continue the apparent trend of regression. Hard to fancy.

1011-7OR: D
25/1

Three from 22 over hurdles and rated a 113 handicap hurdler this time last year. Possibly one to watch on chasing debut and likely to be more appealing when moving in to handicap company.

611-7OR:
12/1

A winner over hurdles in France, got back to her best when third of seven in a mares maiden at Wexford on her chasing debut before finishing second beaten 21L in a Kilbeggan beginners contest last month. More needed but looks one for the shortlist.

50/1

One form 14 over hurdles, the win coming almost 12 months ago at Clonmel. Below par form on the Flat and over timber since renders the mare hard to fancy on chasing introduction.

711-7OR: D
12/1

Improving 99-rated handicap hurdler towards of the year, landing a double at Downpatrick and Tramore in the late summer. Not seen since November but likely to be well-prepped for chasing debut.

1011-7OR: 111BF
33/1

Not out of this on her hurdling form but she had lost her way when last seen and has left Olly Murphy's yard. Makes chase debut after a seven month break so best watched today.

611-7OR:
11/4

Mare progressed quickly once going into handicaps over hurdles, with two wins in four starts achieving 120 rating. Promising sixth of 12 behind Beyond The Law at Cork last month on chasing debut and likely to progress from that run here.

611-7OR:
66/1

The promise of her chasing debut at Cork in January soon disappeared when falling in novice company in a Thurles contest when last seen in February, sent off a t odds of 100/1. Hasn't shown enough to be of interest here.

511-4OR: 117C
13/2

Runner-up on last three starts over fences before finding stiff opposition in a 2m5f handicap chase at the recent Punchestown festival, pulling up before three out. Deserves another chance and not easily dismissed.

Betting

Forecast

Agusta Gold (1/1), Victoria Bay (11/4), Grey Waters (13/2), Mega Mindy (12/1), Thisonesforollie (12/1), Cotton Jenny (16/1), Isabel's Gold (20/1), Glendine River (25/1), Undefined Beauty (33/1), Slainte And Thanks (50/1), Whats Your Beef (66/1)

Verdict

The form of AGUSTA GOLD is hard to knock and the solid and consistent 125-rated hurdler can get his chasing career off to the best possible start here. Second of 16 at Cheltenham's April meeting, the six-year-old can see of the potential challenge from the Gordon Elliott-trained Thisonesforollie and Grey Waters who can be forgiven a recent poor effort at the Punchestown festival. Any market move for Undefined Beauty on debut for Michael Kennedy would be worth noting.
