12/1

Failed to build on the promise of a bumper sixth in four starts since and was never involved on return at Fairyhouse latest. Perhaps handicapping will be making of him, in right hands.

Opening seventh over hurdles not without promise although he was favourite so somewhat disappointing. Poor efforts twice since however but tongue-tied and in first handicap he is respected.

Has shown glimpses of ability but last few runs have been a mixed bag, as highlighted by a 90L defeat last time out in a Wexford novice hurdle over 3m earlier this month. Hard to fancy.

Form had improved somewhat prior to bombing out when sent off favourite over the extended 3m at Kilbeggan two starts back and tailed off again at Downpatrick next over 2m6f. Risky proposition just six days on.

Decent fourth on good to firm at Thurles last November bodes quite well considering she's 3lb lower here. Off since heavy ground fifth in December but mark within range if she's ready to start up.

Produced a big run following such a lengthy layoff when finishing third of 17 beaten 3¾L in a Clonmel handicap hurdle in May. Failed to build on that in three runs since however so others preferred here.

No show in maidens and pulled up and last since sent handicapping. Mark falling but can't be fancied.

Fourth to Pump Road at Sligo off this mark was his most encouraging piece of form and off the same handicap mark today he is certainly one of the more likely sorts in a very weak contest.

Struggled in seven runs so far and showed little sign that he will win a contest over hurdles. Off nine months since latest dismal 12th of 17.

Tailed off last twice and little better in two previous races over hurdles. 12th of 13 in first handicap at Sligo makes him impossible to fancy.

Has flattered to deceive in four runs since returning to action over hurdles in November with an unseating latest when beaten. Even her best form would leave her short of what is required here, seemingly.

Six-race maiden hurdler, finished fourth of seven beaten 43L on handicap debut at Tramore last month. That was ordinary form yet still enough to think he can make the frame here.

29-race maiden was pulled up latest and struggled before that. Third here in March would make her appealing but now a few doubts. Blinkers tried to spark a revival.

Betting

Forecast

Cailean's Angel (4/1), Casadel Sol (11/2), Arizengo (6/1), Wilde Breeze (7/1), Amadeus (7/1), Celtic Dancer (9/1), Ourauldman (10/1), Subset (12/1), Fly Round The Bend (14/1), Trimmers Lane (20/1), Rathnaleen Tou (25/1), Howitsdone (25/1), Miss Mcilroy (25/1), Shedding (40/1)

Verdict

A chance is taken on ARIZENGO after his fourth at Sligo latest which looks the best recent form on offer. Both of Ourauldman and Subset are in their opening handicaps and from top yards so it would be no surprise to see improvement from them here.
