711-12OR: 94
12/1

Winner of one of his 11 starts over hurdles, the Excellent Art gelding finished ninth of 11 beaten 74L on the back of a 772 day break at Wexford last month. Hard to fancy on overall evidence and others hold sturdier claims.

Well held in her six starts over hurdles, never nearer on each occasion. Will need to improve on overall form to play a significant role in this company.

611-9OR: 91
5/1

Six-race maiden over timber. Not disgraced on her last couple of starts over 2m at Wexford and Tramore and will be expected to improve for the step up in trip in first-time blinkers.

More recently seen on the Flat running on the AW at Dundalk before finishing in midfield on his latest start in a Wexford 2m handicap hurdle last month. Not easily dismissed persevering over timber.

11/2

C&D winner in July 2016. Was absent for three years before heavy defeats at Tipperary and on latest start at Listowel earlier this month. Very little to be positive about.

Struggling in three initial hurdling efforts and tough to see where the improvement is coming from to play a major part in this contest. One of three in the race for Co Derry yard.

Course winner that has also won over this trip. Experienced veteran, winner of five of his 40 starts over hurdles and has gone well fresh in the past. One for the shortlist.

611-1OR: 83
25/1

Four-race maiden hurdler who has started at odds of 100/1 on each of his starts over timber, running accordingly on each occasion. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.

12/1

Five-race maiden over hurdles for trainer, Eamonn O'Connell. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here on stable debut.

610-12OR: 80
8/1

Yet to hit the frame in seven dismal hurdling efforts to date. Rejoins original yard but needs a chunk of improvement to play a part in the finish here.

410-8OR: 83
6/1

Five-race maiden who made significant improvement to finish third of eight beaten 11L on a trip to Perth last month. Likely to go well once again.

Betting

Forecast

Perfect In Pink (4/1), Creasted Court (5/1), Our Brian (11/2), Santa Anna (6/1), Mr Moondance (7/1), Arizengo (8/1), Rising (10/1), Tagg's Island (12/1), Mighty Whitey (12/1), Beginagain (12/1), Oscar Light (20/1), Dark Lightning (25/1)

Verdict

It's difficult to get away from the chances of the Mick Winters-trained, CREASTED COURT following a couple of solid runs at Wexford and Tramore recently. The six-year-old can improve for first-time blinkers and hold off the attentions of Mr Moondance, who returned to hurdling recently, Mighty Whitey, one of three in the contest for trainer Noel Kelly and Santa Anna who will possibly continue her development in this company.
  1. Creasted Court
  2. Mr Moondance
  3. Mighty Whitey
