511-10OR:
11/4

Off the mark at just the third time of asking when landing a 23-runner maiden hurdle at the Fairyhouse Easter festival last month. Leading player with this trip likely to bring out some improvement.

11/2

Gradual improvement came to a head when the Mountain High gelding got off the mark at the fourth time of asking for connections over hurdles winning a Leopardstown maiden in March. Never in contention in novice company last month.

711-4OR: 118C
9/4

Course winner that has also won over this trip. Solid 139-rated chaser but without success as yet in six starts over hurdles. Goes well over this trip and a leading player on first appearance since December.

411-2OR: C
8/1

Modest 68-rated handicapper on the Flat. Off the mark over hurdles on debut here over 2m beating 12 rivals 3½L last month. Likely to improve and worthy of consideration.

411-2OR: 124
11/4

Ex-Andrew Balding-trained Flat winner, rated 102 on the level. Has hit the frame in a number of starts last month before getting off the mark at the eighth time of asking over hurdles over 2m1½f at Sligo. Open to significant improvement.

710-11OR:
100/1

By Whitemore's Conn and a half-sister to dual winner The Mulcare Rover. Modest form in the point-to-point ranks and on a couple of dismal bumper starts. Others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Judgement Day (9/4), Galilean (11/4), Lethal Steps (11/4), The Red Menace (11/2), Flindt (8/1), Maine Danger (100/1)

Verdict

The progressive Galileo gelding, GALILEAN could take some stopping following a facile victory at the third time of asking at the Fairyhouse Easter festival last month. The five-year-old, trained by Joseph O'Brien can take the prize at the expense of the Henry De Bromhead-trained Judgement Day on first start for five months. Lethal Steps in the colours of Cheveley Park Stud and Flindt can battle for the minors.
