611-9OR: 109
7/2

Running well in defeat in tow of his last three starts over hurdles and can be forgiven a first obstacle fall at Clonmel last month. Positives outweigh the negatives in this contest and the daughter of Kalanisi should be a major player.

8/1

By no means disgraced in a number of runs over hurdles since February, however remains a five-race maiden coming in to this contest. Can go well but may find one or two better suited to today's conditions.

6/5

Will have disappointed connections in a couple of below-par starts when last seen in January. Improved performance would not surprise for yard with a terrific 49% win and place strike rate at this meeting in the last four years.

Improved on previous efforts when finishing third of 12 beaten 6¾L in a Clonmel handicap hurdle earlier this month. Likable type who holds place claims.

711-0OR: 90
28/1

Modest 48-rated handicapper on the Flat and has been a little overwhelmed in three initial hurdling efforts since making his debut last month. Has shown limited signs of ability and cannot be considered in this contest.

511-0OR:
66/1

Four-race maiden who has been sent off at 100/1 on each of his starts, running accordingly on each occasion. Unlikely to be playing a part in the finish here.

410-7OR: 100
6/1

Solid and consistent eight-race maiden who has been running well in defeat in a number of starts since the turn of the year. Repeat of those efforts can see the So You Think filly battling for prize money.

Betting

Forecast

Song Of Namibia (6/5), Ayr Of Elegance (10/3), Deburrafield (7/2), So Enjoy (6/1), City Limits (8/1), Brokopondo (28/1), Willwams (66/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained, SONG OF NAMIBIA can get off the mark for connections over hurdles at the fourth time of asking. Useful on the Flat for trainer Ger Lyons, the Eight-year-old can land the spoils ahead of the consistent, Deburrafield for the Champion hurdle winning yard of Gavin Cromwell. It would come as no surprise to see the Henry De Bromhead-trained, Ayr Of Elegance improve once again, while So Enjoy could take advantage should any of the main protagonists falter.
