1211-12OR:
66/1

Over four years since his lone win over hurdles and based on recent point-to-point struggles including a fall latest he can easily be passed over.

711-12OR:
100/1

Placed point-to-pointer showed very little in chases, hurdles and bumpers and on all known form will struggle once again.

1011-12OR:
33/1

122-rated hurdler although winless since early 2017. Set a stiff task on chasing bow behind classy hurdler Wicklow Brave and duly struggled. Less depth about this so should do better but minor place probably best he achieves.

611-12OR:
7/1

Won a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last May but failed to build on that afterwards. Chasing may be the making of him given point-to-point background and given the leading yard he represents a bold bid is entirely possible.

711-12OR:
20/1

Ordinary Flat performer was 0-9 over hurdles and achieved a rating of just 102. First time over fences and given his Flat background no guarantees they suit. Ability short of what's required here.

711-12OR:
20/1

Lightly raced over hurdles but failed to win. Form was improving latterly but rating of 103 gives him a good bit to find now over fences although bred to appreciate them.

611-12OR:
7/2

A little disappointing that he only won once over hurdles but rating of 117 not far off the best of these and lone point-to-point saw him win by 20L. Improvement for fences needed but given connections considered more than likely.

511-10OR:
28/1

Decent 106-rated handicap hurdler. Last race over timber finishing third of 11 beaten 35L at Cork before unseating at the first on chase debut last month. Can do better with time but others preferred here.

511-10OR:
9/4

Winning pointer and hurdler (three starts over timber) made an excellent start over fences when third to Grade One hurdler Wicklow Brave at Ballinrobe. Looks a useful prospect now and expectant of him going very close here.

511-10OR:
15/8

Ultra-consistent hurdler was placed six times consecutively last winter before winning back-to-back races to achieve mark of 134. That the highest on offer so if this ex-Flat performer jumps soundly he will take some beating here.

511-10OR:
12/1

119-rated three-time hurdle scorer wasn't disgraced on chasing bow in midfield behind Wicklow Brave but that gives him a lot to find with Cenotice and reversal is hard to envisage here.

Betting

Forecast

Count Simon (15/8), Cenotice (9/4), The Big Lense (7/2), Minella Times (7/1), Gold Seal (12/1), One Cool Poet (20/1), Our Dark Horse (20/1), Baily Gorse (28/1), Miles To Memphis (33/1), Accordion Twilight (66/1), Captain Commander (100/1)

Verdict

The only strong piece of chasing form in the field belongs to lightly-raced CENOTICE and Noel Meade's five-year-old sets the bar pretty high having run so well behind a 156-rated hurdler first time up. Count Simon was the best of these over hurdles and rates the biggest danger with schooling sure to have been plentiful given his yard. Minella Times became frustrating over hurdles but chasing may see him in a better light now.
