711-10OR: 114
5/1

Scorpion gelding won on second chase start at Perth in September off a 3lb lower mark before a setback when stepping in to novice company. Possibly needed the spin over hurdles at Ballinrobe last month and very much a leading contender in this heat.

911-8OR: 112
14/1

Modest 102-rated handicap hurdler who was in good form last summer. Last success over fences came in a Gowran Park handicap 18-months ago off a similar mark. Has gone well fresh previously and not totally ruled out.

7/1

Solid and consistent sort running well in defeat without getting his head in front in nine starts over the larger obstacles. May go well again but needs a couple to falter.

1011-5OR: 109
6/1

Off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking over fences when landing a Wexford handicap over 2m4f off a 7lb lower mark on first start for yard. Life more difficult under a penalty but a leading player.

811-4OR: 108
3/1

13-race maiden over the larger obstacles but has shown he is capable of hitting the frame on a number of occasions when running well in defeat. Market likely to be the best guide.

5/1

Has been mixing it on the Flat, over hurdles and fences without success recently. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

811-2OR: 106BFC
5/1

Off the mark over fences on debut here over 2m3½f last month. Can possibly be forgiven his last run at Uttoxeter earlier this month and very much worthy of consideration in this contest.

810-8OR: 98
20/1

Below-par 95-rated handicap hurdler and has appeared overwhelmed in a couple of initial starts over fences at Naas and Down Royal when last seen in March. Not in the form required to play a part.

169-12OR: 88D
14/1

Popular veteran still hitting the frame at a ripe old age. Beaten 68L in a Wexford handicap chase when last seen in April and holds place claims at best here.

Betting

Forecast

Mindsmadeup (3/1), The Jam Man (5/1), Pat's Pearl (5/1), Creadan Grae (5/1), King's War (6/1), School Lane (7/1), See Double You (14/1), Persian Wind (14/1), Turbo (14/1), Darcy Mcgees (20/1)

Verdict

With a good number of the field struggling for form, trainer Gordon Elliott may have found an ideal opening for CREADAN GRAE to get back to winning ways. The seven-year-old won on second chase start at Perth in September and can get the better of the rejuvenated, Kings War, winner at Wexford on last start and the John McConnell-trained course winner, Pat's Pearl. It would not come as a surprise should, School Lane return to form.
