14/1

Winner of three of his 43 starts over hurdles. Raced in rear from early stages in a couple of starts since returning to action in April. Not getting any younger but still retains plenty of ability.

9/2

Beaten favourite on his most recent start at Ballinrobe last month when disappointing connections finishing third of 16 beaten 13½L. Overall positives outweigh the negatives in this contest and can play a role at the business end of proceedings.

3/1

Fourth of 12 on latest start in a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle as beaten favourite earlier this month. 17-race maiden over hurdles but repeat of recent efforts should see the daughter of Poet's Voice in the hunt for further prize money.

Distance winner of a Sligo handicap hurdle in April on good ground off a 8lb lower mark. Well held at this venue last month but not ruled out by any means here.

Miserly return of one from 27 over hurdles but has hit the frame on a further five occasions. Nothing of note in a number of dismal efforts since November and hard to fancy in this contest.

Seven-race maiden handicap hurdler who produced her best effort for sometime here in a 2m5½f contest last month. Needs to show more consistency.

711-5OR: 88

Without success in eight starts over timber and has looked a little over whelmed in a number of starts since returning to action in April. Unlikely to be troubling the judge in this heat.

Winner of a Tipperary handicap hurdle over 2m4f last month off a 6lb lower mark. Well held in a couple of starts since and liable to find a couple stronger here.

Will have concerned connections in a series of disappointing starts since maiden hurdle introduction at Naas in November. Form doesn't warrant support here.

Five-race maiden over hurdles but showed a hint of improvement last time out here in a handicap over a similar trip last month. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive in this contest.

Without success in 18 starts over hurdles but has show a marked improvement in a couple of runs since returning to action last month. One of a number of viable combatants in this company.

Plenty to like and take out of his most recent starts, both here, the latest of which saw the Thewayyouare gelding finish second of 14 beaten 8L over C&D last month. Likable type who should be in the mix.

Second Reserve: One from 26 over hurdles and is currently on a long losing run with a number of dismal efforts on record since January. May struggle if making the line-up.

Forecast

Duke's Girl (3/1), Global Racing (9/2), Watching Brief (6/1), Howitsdone (7/1), Musical Ava (7/1), Pump Road (8/1), Balgowlah (9/1), Greenandwhitearmy (11/1), Bye Bye O Bye (14/1), Caerleon Kate (14/1), Miracle Way (14/1), Madaboy Cross (14/1), Mash Potato (16/1), Divine Lucy (16/1), Basil's Boy (20/1), Perle Rose (25/1), Galuppi (25/1), Oscar Light (33/1)

Verdict

DUKE'S GIRL can finally win her first hurdle race at the 18th time of asking following a couple of solid efforts recently and should appreciate the drop in trip here. Beaten favourite at Kilbeggan earlier this month, the five-year-old can land the spoils ahead of the Gavin Cromwell-trained, Global Racing who can emerge as the biggest danger. Top weight, Bye Bye O Baby will be assisted by the 7lb claim of Darragh O'Keefe, while Pump Road, winner at Sligo in April can go well at a price.
