711-10OR: 115
14/1

Experienced winner of four of his 16 starts over hurdles with the daughter of Jeremy's last win coming in a Thurles handicap hurdle in November off a 9lb lower mark. Beaten since but looks capable of grabbing a place.

Off the mark over hurdles for connections at the third time of asking when landing a Navan maiden in November. Recently seen winning over the larger obstacles at Kilbeggan last month and worthy of serious consideration in this kind of form.

Won her first hurdle start at the seventh attempt at this venue in a 2m1½f handicap last month off a 9lb lower mark. Beaten here since over longer trip and may well appreciate a drop in distance in this contest.

12/1

Finished 37L adrift of Dynamic Allen at this track last month before getting off the mark over hurdles at the fifth attempt earlier this month in a Kilbeggan mares hurdle over a similar trip. Worth a market check in current form.

9/2

Successful on her third start over timber when justifying odds-on favouritism when victorious by 6L in a 2m novice hurdle on good ground last month before a 7L defeat at Hexham. Leading player dropping in trip.

611-1OR: 106
5/1

Came off a 12 month break to land the spoils in a Tramore handicap hurdle earlier this month over 2m5f. Likable type but 9lb rise for returning win and possible 'bounce' factor a concern.

Looked slow on return to action at Limerick in March before having to be pulled up on heavy ground. Four-race maiden looks up against it here.

Betting

Forecast

Put The Kettle On (13/8), Dollys Destination (9/2), In A Pinch (5/1), Dynamic Allen (5/1), Duke's Girl (7/1), Miss Chevious Girl (9/1), Beat Of The Sea (12/1), Rain In Spain (14/1), Comehere Hi (20/1)

Verdict

Scorpion mare, IN A PINCH returned off the back of a 12 month break to land the spoils in a Tramore handicap hurdle earlier this month over 2m5f and appears capable of more improvement to make it four in a row. The six-year-old can get the better in the later stages of the contest of Put The Kettle On, winner at Kilbeggan last month and the solid and consistent, Dollys Destination.
