Remains a maiden and best efforts have come on softer ground. Progress was faltering when he came down two out at Ballinrobe but he faces an easier task here despite topweight.

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.

Showed a bit more when fitted with cheekpieces over fences at Killarney twelve days ago. Better handicapped over hurdles and the longer trip here should help also.

1-26 over hurdles and returns after a break off a lower mark than when gaining that victory at this venue. Looks risky overall.

Won the charity race at the Punchestown festival and then made all to score over C&D. Could not repeat the feat at Tramore and he is higher in the weights here.

Of little account in three maiden hurdles during 2016. Tailed off in three starts since returning to action and of no appeal here.

15-race maiden whose best efforts have come on slower ground and who tends to find little at the business end. Others preferred.

Winning point-to-pointer has achieved very little under rules and was soon in trouble last time. Back from a break and massive improvement required.

Went well in a bumper here last summer but has fared less well over hurdles and his jumping has let him down on his last two outings.

Not easy to win with but he impressed when gaining his sole success at Down Royal a year ago. Lightly raced since and some promise on comeback a month ago. However, he looks a tricky ride and pilot is 0-47.

Similar level of form over hurdles and fences and losing run building up. Claims on some of his form last autumn but needs to dispel fears arising from his latest run.

Showed little in 2017 and two runs on return this year have seen him fare little better. Looks easy to oppose.

Moderate filly failed to show any reaction for the switch to handicap company last time and now steps up considerably in trip.

Showed the first signs of ability here last time when 9L behind Manomine over C&D. May improve again but still has a lot to find.

Thatbeatsbanagher (9/2), Manomine (5/1), Classic Concorde (5/1), Zagnzig (7/1), Pat Coyne (15/2), Seekamist (10/1), Bracka Lily (12/1), Novel Character (14/1), Balgowlah (16/1), Caerleon Kate (16/1), Mash Potato (20/1), Miracle Way (25/1), Greenandwhitearmy (25/1), Doo Wakka Doo (33/1), Oscar Light (33/1)

Verdict

THATBEATSBANAGHER looks the one to follow virtue of an improved effort in cheekpieces when stepped up in trip last time and an attractive hurdles mark that does not account for the progress he's made. Classic Concorde should find this easier despite topweight, but the remainder are inconsistent, poorly handicapped or in need of testing ground. Zagnzig has the conditions to run a big race and could reach a place at rewarding odds.
