25/1

Useful 121 novice hurdler who landed a couple of bumpers in her career. Market likely to be the best guide on stable debut running for the first time over fences.

13/2

Solid hurdler, rated 115 when finishing third of 10 beaten 18L in a Tipperary handicap last month. Likely to be popular in the market on first chase start.

Age: 6|  Weight: 11-12  |  J: Adrian Heskin |  T: J Queally|  OR: 135
20/1

Failed to finish in two of his three starts for trainer-Paul Nicholls including unseating in a Warwick novice chase on his sole start over fences in November. Best watched on stable debut.

5/1

Distance winner of a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle in October. Decent hurdler, rated 120 over timber and will need to make significant improvement on his debut over the larger obstacles at Ballinrobe last month.

5
Age: 6|  Weight: 11-12  |  J: S F O'Keeffe |  T: B Jordan
9/1

Plenty of encouragement on his first couple of starts over the larger obstacles at Ballinrobe and last month when finishing second of nine at Tramore. Repeat of that effort would see the gelding in the hunt for further prize money.

6
Age: 7|  Weight: 11-12  |  J: B Hayes |  T: Emmet Mullins
66/1

Modest 99-rated handicap hurdler who finished 122L adrift of the winner of a 2m contest at Hexham on stable debut earlier this month. Needs to improve significantly.

33/1

Solis and consistent hurdler in his class winning one of his 10 starts over timber but finishing in the frame on a further five occasions. Gutsy type who may need the experience on chasing introduction.

8
Age: 7|  Weight: 11-12  |  J: D N Russell |  T: G Elliott|  CD
5/4

Course winner that has also won over this trip in his hurdling career. Rated 138 over timber, the Big Bad Bob gelding can get off the mark at the fifth time of asking for connections over the larger obstacles.

10/1

Sixth of 12 beaten 17L on chasing debut at Kilbeggan over 2m4f last month. Likely to appreciate the drop in trip as the Lawman gelding makes his chasing debut in first time cheekpieces.

10
Age: 7|  Weight: 11-12  |  J: D Meyler |  T: E Doyle|  D
16/1

124-rated hurdler with three wins from 15 attempts. Made decent first of chasing on first try at Punchestown before disappointing in a Kilbeggan beginners contest earlier this month. Impossible to fancy against these rivals.

11
Age: 11|  Weight: 11-12  |  J: D F O'Regan |  T: Norman Lee|  D
80/1

Tough ask on belated chasing debut when finishing 35L adrift of Wicklow Brave in a Ballinrobe beginners last month. Very little to be positive about.

12
Age: 5|  Weight: 11-11  |  J: S A Shortall |  T: J P O'Brien|  D
16/1

Novice winning hurdler, performances in a couple of starts over the larger obstacles have left a little to be desired. Improvement would not come as a surprise.

13
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: D E Mullins |  T: S Ryan|  D
33/1

107-rated handicap hurdler, no impression and well beaten on chasing debut in a Ballinrobe beginners contest over 2m1f last month. Tough ask and others preferred.

14
Age: 10|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: P D Kennedy |  T: Michael G Kennedy|  OR: 111|  D
50/1

Useful 111-rated over hurdles and was not disgraced on chasing introduction in a Killarney beginners contest over 2m5f last month, finishing fifth of 10 beaten 21L. More needed but may run in to a place.

Forecast

Morgan (5/4), Jan Maat (5/1), Bay Hill (13/2), Knock On Steel (9/1), One In All In (10/1), Roney (11/1), St Lawrence Gap (16/1), Inca Gold (16/1), Djingle (20/1), Awbeg Prince (25/1), Messie (33/1), Red Pearl (33/1), Ballymac Boy (33/1), Undefined Beauty (50/1), Lambs Lane (66/1), Captain Commander (66/1), Thinkitplanitdoit (80/1)

Verdict
The Big Bad Bob gelding, MORGAN can get off the mark at the fifth attempt for trainer/jockey duo of Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell. The 138-rated hurdler can hold off the challenge from potential dangers in the shape of the J P McManus-owned, Bay Hill and Inca Gold, while One In All In and Knock On Steel should not be easily dismissed.
