411-7OR:
25/1

Modest on the Flat, gaining 1m4f Hamilton success last summer from eight starts in that sphere. Returns from an absence to commence hurdling career and worth at least a betting check.

411-7OR:
11/4

81-rated winner on the Flat, very good third in big field on second start over hurdles at Christmas (8L behind Sir Erec) but not always jumping fluently and similar tale at Cork (2m, good to yielding; 8-1) this month. Goes up in trip, respected.

411-7OR:
7/2

AW winner at Dundalk in January over 1m4f on fifth start, fancied for hurdling introduction at Killarney (2m1f, good to yielding; 11-4) this month, only to be luckless getting brought down early doors.

411-2OR:

67-rated handicapper on the Flat for this yard but has failed to spark in a trio of maiden hurdle starts to date (fell last time at Ballinrobe). Possibilities of improvement without troubling the judge.

Rajsaman gelding. Half-brother to French hurdler winners Korristo and City Korri. Dam fair French hurdler winner up to 2m3f. No impact on debut at Tramore nine days ago (2m, good; 66-1).

Soldier Hollow out of a Rahy mare. Half-brother to three winners on the Flat, including German 1m/1m1f winner Miss Europa. Fancied but well-enough held both starts for champion trainer, should offer more before long.

Flat-bred gelding hasn't pulled up any trees in five-race career for two trainers so far and looks best watched now turning attention to the jumping game.

411-2OR:
50/1

Bred and built to be top-class, but disappointing for Richard Hannon last year, and hasn't offered much for new connections this year. Switches code in bid to improve his lot.

411-0OR:
14/1

Dual winner over 1m4f for William Haggas on the Flat last summer and changed hands in the autumn for 45,000 gns. Offered some hope in pair of hurdles starts at Punchestown and Cork (131 days apart) but has plenty to work just the same.

410-9OR: 86
66/1

Maiden of 14 races, minor promise in maiden hurdles though last month's 21L defeat in a handicap at Wexford (2m, yielding to soft) does leave plenty to be worked on. Jumping lacked fluency.

410-9OR:

Bated Breath filly out of a Sadler's Wells related to Flat winners Beckford and Ekhtiyaar. Four-race maiden on the Flat, unable to challenge on hurdles bow at Sligo (2m1½f, good to yielding; 100-1) last month.

410-9OR:

Filly by Notnowcato out of a Galileo mare. Half-sister to 2m hurdle winner Katoptris. Few positives from pair of starts in this sphere at Wexford (2m4f, yielding to soft) and Cork (2m, good to yielding) thus far.

Last RunWatch last race

410-9OR:
66/1

Regressive Flat maiden whose best effort in that sphere came over 7f, filly was beaten 36L on hurdles bow at Kilbeggan (2m, good; 100-1) last month, though she did run well for a long way off a layoff.

410-9OR:

Long standing maiden on the Flat and showed little on either hurdling start recently at Sligo or Cork, so easy to pass over for now.

Last RunWatch last race

410-9OR:
25/1

Barely filly, dam unraced half-sister to useful hurdler Topolski. Unplaced in maiden on point debut last month and bit of improving to be done of hoping to have leading say on rules bow.

Last RunWatch last race

410-9OR:
11/4

Moderate form on Flat at up to 1m4f but showed plenty of promise in finishing second both hurdles starts so far. Latest Navan race (2m, yielding) has thrown up multiple winners since and likely to have leading say now.

Betting

Forecast

Nibiru (11/4), Volatile Lady (11/4), Stronghold (7/2), Mister Capitano (7/1), Fallen Forest (12/1), Life On Earth (14/1), Toor Moment (25/1), Liars Corner (25/1), Razoul (33/1), Sharg (50/1), Effernock Fizz (66/1), Spirit Of Dreams (66/1), Hunter (100/1), Taylor Velvet (100/1), Korriman (100/1), Fake Media (100/1)

Verdict

The Willie Mullins-trained Mister Capitano ran well enough at Downpatrick last time behind a couple of potentially decent rivals. He's likely to offer more and get off the mark soon but he's twice let backers down and will be touted for this. Brendan Duke's filly VOLATILE LADY defied a huge price to be second on debut at Fairyhouse and backed that run up when taking the same slot at Navan in February. The form of that race is decent and she can make it third time lucky. There was plenty support for Stronghold on his bow at Killarney where he was brought down early, so he's noted, while Nibiru can take a race like this once his jumping comes good.
