The ground may have turned against him at Wexford, but there were signs prior to that to suggest the handicapper may have his measure. However, many of these carry doubts and he usually comes in for support ahead of a big run.

16/1

Having his 87th start under rules here and is without success in five runs over the larger obstacles. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive in this contest.

Point-to-point form and first three runs over regulation fences hinted at better, but his handicap debut was a weak effort and blinkers are tried here.

1/1

Has won his last two over the Punchestown banks and even beat Josie's Orders last time. Would be a handicap blot on that form, but he has been tailed off on his last two starts over conventional fences. Yard have a 2-4 record in this event.

Dual point-to-point winner who produced his best run under rules here two weeks ago. Would have been closer but for an awkward leap at the last and enters the reckoning.

Won two last autumn and rebounded from some poor efforts to score at Wexford last month when outsider of six. Has won here previously so hard to dismiss.

Career record of 1-28 and has produced three weak efforts in 2019. Latest gives her a lot to find with Canadian Steel and opposable on that score.

Betting

Forecast

Blue Templar (1/1), Toosey (11/2), Shanklys Dawn (7/1), Canadian Steel (8/1), Maureen's Star (9/1), Tinnehinch (14/1), Sir Ector (16/1), Mr Bolt (25/1)

Verdict

BLUE TEMPLAR is hard to ignore judged on his efforts over the Punchestown banks which mean he looks thrown in off today's mark. Previous efforts under rules question his effectiveness over regular obstacles, but it may be that he is a more mature individual nowadays. Shanklys Dawn knows her way around here and bounced back to form with a gutsy win at Wexford and she looks the main threat judged on that. Canadian Steel ran well here two weeks ago, whilst Toosey cannot be classed as well-handicapped but still has more going for him than many of the others.
