20:00 Roscommon Mon 13 May 2019
Sending mixed signals in three career hurdle starts towards the end of the year. Will need to raise overall profile to play a part on return to action.
Impressive winner of a Gowran Park maiden for Ger Lyons before joining new connections for €85,000. Pulled up when breaking blood vessels when last seen in December. Fitness can be only taken on trust, but a big contender if good enough.
Failed to finish in a couple of point-to-point starts before pulling up on hurdling debut in a Cork maiden last month. Hard to place any faith in.
Two-from-two in bumpers after wins at Down Royal and Roscommon before finishing a promising third of 18 on hurdling debut when last seen in July. Likely more to come on return to action for respected connections, currently in flying form.
Gelding by Kalanisi out of a Grand Plaisir mare. Dam was a bumper/2m hurdle winner. Well beaten 40L in a disappointing debut appearance at Kilbeggan last month. Easy to look elsewhere.
Lightly raced Stowaway gelding who won a Clonmel bumper in 2017 and has only been seen on the one occasion at Limerick over 12 months ago. Interesting connections are keeping faith with the seven-year-old.
Well held in a couple of maiden hurdle starts previous to a dismal bumper effort at Fairyhouse on return to action last month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Mare by Ask out of a well-related mare. Beaten 68L in a Wexford bumper last month and well out of her depth in this company.
