1
611-12OR:

Gelding by Scorpion out of a Luso who cost €12,000 as a three-year-old. Well held in a couple of initial hurdles starts before two bumper defeats in recent months. Good chance handicaps will suit better.

Last RunWatch last race
2
511-12OR:

Failed to finish in a couple of points and hasn't fared much better so far over hurdles, though did show a marked improvement earlier this month at Downpatrick. One to consider.

Last RunWatch last race
3
611-12OR:

Unfancied when pulled up on his hurdles debut at Cork in April before finishing seventh of 10 beaten 25L in a Kilbeggan 2m4f maiden hurdle on good ground earlier this month. Hard to fancy on overall evidence and others hold stronger claims.

Last RunWatch last race
4
611-12OR:

Point-to-point winner who has shown little in a bumper and three spins over hurdles. Sent off at 33/1 on latest start at Clonmel when last seen in December and probably best watched for now.

Last RunWatch last race
5
511-12OR:

Gelding by Muhtathir out of a Barathea mare. Closely related to Pacha Du Polda. Well held in three below par efforts in bumpers, including when last seen in August. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about required improvement on hurdling bow.

511-12OR: 95

A cheap purchase that has been well held in every start so far. Made no impact in a number of hurdling efforts since February and overall form doesn't warrant support here.

7
611-12OR:

Presenting gelding out of a Fair Mix mare. Winner of two of his three career point-to-point starts. Well held and never nearer in a couple of career chase starts to date. Liable to find a couple stronger.

8
511-12OR:

Gelding by Haatef out of a Marju mare. Half-brother to the handy Estibdaad and Danz Gift. Marked improvement finishing fifth in a 20-runner Down Royal contest over 2m earlier this month. Step up in trip not sure to suit.

9
611-12OR: 90

Stowaway gelding with little to recommend him based on five starts in maiden hurdles so far. Tough to see where improvement is coming from to play a role in this contest.

Last RunWatch last race
10
611-12OR:

Showed signs of greenness and promise on debut but has failed to progress in three maiden hurdle starts since. Cannot be completely dismissed representing leading yard.

Last RunWatch last race
11
611-5OR:

100/1 fourth at Wexford in March her first glimmer ability and filled the same position there next after being well held at Tramore. Fourth (again) in a 10-runner Clonmel maiden earlier this month. Open to more improvement.

Last RunWatch last race
12
511-5OR: 91

Big prices and yet to get anywhere near to being competitive over hurdles so far. No impression in third when making a mistake and unseating at the last in a Clonmel maiden earlier this month. Out of sorts recently and this looks a tough ask.

Betting

Forecast

Black Market (11/4), Shawshank (9/2), Big Tree (9/2), Storm Flight (5/1), Yendo (7/1), Araukan (9/1), Try Dollys Sister (12/1), Pat Coyne (16/1), Magistralis (22/1), Clouncerna (22/1), Tibetan Gold (33/1), Dix De Der (40/1)

Verdict

Trainer Henry De Bromhead may have found an ideal opportunity for his Yeats gelding, BLACK MARKET to solve a tricky opening race puzzle. The five-year-old showed plenty of improvement on his latest start at Downpatrick and can get the better of the luckless, Araukan and the Gordon Elliott-trained Yendo.
