4/1

15-race maiden over hurdle but has been running well in defeat on a number of occasions since March. Worth a market check dropping to what appears to be a preferred trip.

2
Age: 9|  Weight: 11-12  |  J: A Ring |  T: Denis Hogan|  OR: 95
25/1

Winner of a Bellewstown 2m4f handicap hurdle off a 9lb lower mark 12 months ago but has been largely well held in a number of starts over timber and the larger obstacles in the meantime. Others preferred.

3
Age: 7|  Weight: 11-10  |  J: C D Maxwell |  T: P Martin|  OR: 93
16/1

Five-race maiden over hurdles but caught the eye finishing second of 22 beaten 5L behind Scotch Quay over this trip in April. Has suffered a number of disappointing defeats overall but improved performance would not surprise.

4
Age: 9|  Weight: 11-8  |  J: Mr J Hogan |  T: Denis Hogan|  OR: 91|  D
8/1

Running well over the larger obstacles around the turn of the year including a win in a Punchestown handicap in December. Has failed to hit the frame in five hurdle starts and looks up against it here.

5
Age: 7|  Weight: 11-8  |  J: K J Brouder |  T: D A McLoughlin|  OR: 91|  D
7/2

Off the mark for connections at the 15th time of asking in a Down Royal handicap hurdle over 2m½f last month off a 9lb lower mark. Life more difficult under penalty.

6
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-7  |  J: Katie O'Farrell |  T: Peter Maher|  OR: 90|  D
16/1

Sole win in 21 starts came in a bumper with the Mr Dino's mare without success following 12 appearances over hurdles. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.

7
Age: 6|  Weight: 11-7  |  J: R A Doyle |  T: D Cullen|  OR: 90
11/1

Improvement arrived on her fourth start over hurdles when finishing third of 15 behind Zoffalee at Ballinrobe last month on her first start for 198 days. Repeat of that effort should see her in the hunt for more prize money.

8
Age: 6|  Weight: 11-6  |  J: N P Madden |  T: N Madden|  OR: 89
7/1

Not much to shout about in four career hurdle starts including a number of heavy handicap defeats since the turn of the year. Possibly best watched unless the market suggests otherwise.

9
Age: 7|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: K C Sexton |  T: Peter Fahey|  OR: 88
16/1

Modest 57-rated handicapper on the Flat and seven-race maiden hurdler. Last seen over timber finishing 11th of 20 in a Down Royal contest on St Stephens day in 2016. Plenty to prove.

10
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-2  |  J: T Ryan |  T: J Grace|  OR: 85
25/1

Slight improvement on latest start over hurdles in a Limerick handicap last month finishing eighth of 12 but needs to raise overall profile to play a part here.

11
Age: 4|  Weight: 11-2  |  J: S W Flanagan |  T: P A Fahy|  OR: 92
12/1

Four-race maiden over hurdles but produced a solid effort on handicap debut earlier this month to finish runner-up at Tramore, beaten ½L over a similar trip. Another bold show is a possibility.

12
Age: 4|  Weight: 10-13  |  J: D J O'Keeffe |  T: J J Walsh|  OR: 89
14/1

Signs of progression last time out at Tramore behind Nancy D'Alton at the start of the month. Looks to be an improving sort and merits plenty of respect.

13
Age: 6|  Weight: 10-12  |  J: B J Cooper |  T: I Madden|  OR: 81
14/1

14-race maiden hurdler who has been sending out mixed messages in a number of starts since December. Could go well but has plenty of danger attached.

Age: 9|  Weight: 10-11  |  J: G P Brouder |  T: Ian O'Connor|  OR: 80
20/1

Without any success in 10 starts over hurdles, hitting the frame on just one occasion. Recent efforts have been below-par and has not shown enough overall to be of interest.

15
Age: 10|  Weight: 10-11  |  J: J W Kennedy |  T: J Grace|  OR: 80
33/1

Not seen for over 12 months when finishing down the field at Wexford in April before a dour effort at Listowel earlier this month. Below-par form looks set to continue.

17
Age: 6|  Weight: 10-11  |  J: P E Corbett |  T: Miss E McCutcheon|  OR: 80
33/1

Yet to hit the frame in six starts over hurdles and overall record cast doubt on her ability to get competitive in this contest.

18
Age: 4|  Weight: 10-7  |  J: I J McCarthy |  T: E McCarthy|  OR: 83
33/1

Not much to shout about in four hurdle starts to date, failing to hit the frame on each occasion. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.

20
Age: 4|  Weight: 11-2  |  J: P T Enright |  T: G T Lynch|  OR: 92
20/1

Second Reserve: Four race maiden hurdle who has been sent off at big prices on his most recent starts, running accordingly on each occasion. Form doesn't warrant support here.

Forecast

Glendaars Warrior (7/2), Grey Atlantic Way (4/1), Under The Clock (7/1), Barna Venture (8/1), She'stherightone (11/1), Nancy D'Alton (12/1), Lucia's Bob (14/1), Divin Desir (14/1), Joy's Gift (16/1), No Way Jack (16/1), Alice Johnston (16/1), King Christophe (16/1), Ashqar (20/1), Bere Haven (20/1), Meet The Man (25/1), Mister Butler (25/1), Miss Mcilroy (25/1), De Bennette (33/1), All The Angels (33/1), Rosmarine (33/1), Our Brian (33/1)

Verdict
Down Royal winner last month, Glendaars Warrior can go well once again following an 8L demolition of a 17-runner line-up but the 9lb rise in the weights for the Heliostatic gelding may be enough to let in potential improver, NANCY D'ALTON. The four-year-old filly showed a marked progression for jockey, Sean Flanagan at Tramore recently and can see off the attentions of Lucia's Bob for the J J Walsh yard and gutsy top-weight, Grey Atlantic Way.
  1. Nancy D'Alton
