911-10OR: 132D
12/1

Solid sort, winning three of his 23 starts over fences. Well held since victory at Kilbeggan in September off a 4lb lower mark, but still capable of hitting the frame in this company.

711-7OR: 129
7/1

Ended a quite long losing run when opening his account over fences at Cork at the ninth time of asking for connections. Ran with credit in a Punchestown novice handicap last month and can give another good account of himself here.

Classic Cliche gelding who is struggling to add to his two wins over the larger obstacles off his current mark. Possibly best watched unless market suggests otherwise.

811-6OR: 128
7/1

Won his second race over fences in a Wexford handicap over two years ago. Lightly raced but generally well held since the gelding may find this a tough assignment.

611-4OR: 126
4/1

Winner of a couple of novice hurdles in the autumn, but things have not gone to plan since. Capable of going well but has a couple of below-par efforts to shake off.

1211-1OR: 123D
20/1

Winner of five of his 25 starts over fences and has hit the frame on a further three occasions. Last seen pulling up at Punchestown in a 2m6½f handicap chase in November and likely to need the run on return to action.

911-1OR: 123
40/1

Two from 13 over the larger obstacles but there is a grave concern that the Stowaway gelding has failed to complete in three of his four starts since December. Impossible to consider.

Another one in the contest where there are concerns over the geldings ability to complete their races. Very little to be positive about.

910-13OR: 121
10/1

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking for connections over the larger obstacles when landing a Punchestown handicap chase off a 6lb lower mark last month. Beaten latest and could be struggling from revised rating.

1010-12OR: 120C
16/1

Three from 17 over fences but recent appearances have been scant in the last two years. Possibly best watched on first run since December unless the market suggests otherwise no back on a winning mark.

810-10OR: 118
25/1

Useful 116-rated handicap hurdler who has failed to complete any of his last four chase starts including a start over the banks at Punchestown in February. Others preferred.

810-9OR: 117
8/1

Improved performance on his most recent start earlier this month at Kilbeggan over 3m1f when finishing third of eight. Capable of a bold bid if not turned out too quickly.

510-5OR: 116
9/2

Landed a 20/1 shock last month winning a Down Royal hunter chase by 2L in a five-runner contest over 2m6f before landing the spoils again at Tipperary three days later. One for the shortlist once again.

810-3OR: 111
10/1

Still awaiting a breakthrough success after 13 chase starts, putting in as many poor efforts as good ones. Promising run in defeat at Kilbeggan earlier this month but has never been the easiest to catch right.

Forecast

Ellie Mac (4/1), Rewritetherules (9/2), Tesseract (7/1), Beyond The Law (7/1), Ned Stark (7/1), Stoneford (8/1), Mac N Cheese (10/1), Hugo 'n Taz (10/1), Full Cry (12/1), Riviera Sun (16/1), Cecil Corbett (20/1), The Gatechecker (20/1), Wishmoor (25/1), Trongate (25/1), Behind Time (25/1), Champagne Harmony (40/1)

Verdict

The J J Hanlon-trained REWRITETHERULES can land a hat-trick of wins here making it three from three over the larger obstacles. The dual winner at Down Royal and Tipperary last month can hold off the challengers in the shape of Beyond The Law in the Potts colours, Ellie Mac for trainer Henry De Bromhead and recent Kilbeggan third, Stoneford.
