4/1

Without a win in four starts over the larger obstacles but the Getaway gelding has produced a couple of encouraging pieces of work at Tipperary and here over C&D earlier this month. Can be expected to run another big race given his consistency.

3
Age: 6|  Weight: 11-11  |  J: S W Flanagan |  T: D M O'Brien|  OR: 99
10/1

Winning point-to-point runner who landed a Downpatrick hunter chase last month. Beaten since but went close on last start and a repeat would herald another bold bid.

Age: 8|  Weight: 11-9  |  J: R A Doyle |  T: D A McLoughlin|  OR: 97
33/1

Basement 88-rated handicap hurdler, the Mr Combustable gelding has been seen down the field the field on both starts over fences recently. Others more appealing on the balance of recent sorties.

5
Age: 12|  Weight: 11-9  |  J: L P Dempsey |  T: J J Lambe|  OR: 97
33/1

Popular veteran has been left floundering in a number of hurdle and chase starts since the turn of the year. Not getting any younger and unlikely to be troubling the judge.

6
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-8  |  J: P T Enright |  T: M A Cahill|  OR: 96
10/1

Produced a career best when second of 14 beaten ½L behind Tiantu at Tramore last month before disappointing on return to the venue earlier this month. Needs to improve significantly.

7
Age: 11|  Weight: 11-7  |  J: A McCurtin |  T: J J Walsh|  OR: 95
25/1

Off the mark over fences when landing a Fairyhouse beginners chase in January. The gelding has failed to build on that effort in a couple of chases and has been more recently seen struggling over hurdles at Limerick and Roscommon. Others preferred.

8
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-7  |  J: D E Mullins |  T: G Ahern|  OR: 95|  C
14/1

Career best over the larger obstacles when finishing third of 13 beaten 5¾L in a Tramore handicap chase over 2m5½f last month. Capable of another positive run without troubling the judge.

9
Age: 9|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: D P Holden |  T: L Young|  OR: 93|  D
25/1

Winner of one of his nine starts over fences and the gelding has struggling of late with his form over both hurdle and chase obstacles. Form doesn't warrant support.

10
Age: 5|  Weight: 11-4  |  J: J M Moore |  T: G P Cromwell|  OR: 95
5/1

Modest 97-rated hurdler has shown little or no signs of ability in two starts over fences. Will need to raise overall profile to play a part in the finish.

11
Age: 9|  Weight: 11-3  |  J: D J O'Keeffe |  T: Padraig Roche|  OR: 91
6/1

Eight-race maiden over fences, the Shantou mare finished in midfield of a 13-runner handicap chase at Tramore last month. Gave the impression that she was improving over the larger obstacles towards the end of last year. Should go well.

12
Age: 7|  Weight: 10-13  |  J: D R Fox |  T: M M McNiff|  OR: 87
16/1

10-race maiden under rules and yet to hit the frame in six starts over fences including an 18L defeat on latest start here over 2m4 earlier this month. Unlikely to improve for the step up in trip.

13
Age: 8|  Weight: 10-9  |  J: A W Short |  T: P J Rothwell|  OR: 83|  CD
25/1

C&D winner of a 14-runner handicap in September off a 12lb lower mark. Decent form continued with a win at Tramore last month but needs more to defy current mark in this company.

14
Age: 10|  Weight: 10-8  |  J: P E Corbett |  T: W Ross|  OR: 82
20/1

Without a win in nine starts over fences but the Chevalier gelding has continued to hit the frame on a regular basis. Deserves a change of luck and can make his presence felt here.

15
Age: 13|  Weight: 10-6  |  J: C A Landers |  T: John G Carr|  OR: 80|  CD
25/1

C&D winner previously but has suffered a couple of heavy reversals of late over fences. Not guaranteed that a step up in trip and return of a visor will spark a revival.

16
Age: 14|  Weight: 10-4  |  J: Mr N McParlan |  T: S McParlan|  OR: 78
5/1

Appears to have taken to fences well finishing second of 12 on his most recent start at Downpatrick behind I'm An Izz Wizz on Saturday. Should be a leading contender in this contest.

17
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: Mr R W Barron |  T: E Bolger|  OR: 93|  BF|  D
15/2

First Reserve: Failed to land a hat-trick of wins when going down by 24L in a Downpatrick handicap chase over 2m7½f last month. Could be of interest if making the line-up.

Churchtown Glen (4/1), Top Of The Charts (5/1), Mr Bolt (5/1), Open To The World (6/1), Blue Templar (15/2), My Oakclahome (10/1), Theatre Run (10/1), Glacial Shadow (12/1), Cantkidakidder (12/1), Whoyakodding (14/1), Unchago (16/1), Goldmineinthesky (20/1), Winter Magic (20/1), Loch Luatha (25/1), Bridies Boy (25/1), Shanklys Dawn (25/1), Fergiethelegend (25/1), Drimsree Lad (33/1), Sir Ector (33/1)

Verdict
Although getting on in years, the evergreen, MR BOLT can get off the mark over fences at the fourth time of asking for connections. The 14-year-old finished second of 12 on Saturday when just headed in the final strides and can make amends here at the expense of the solid and consistent, Churchtown Glen, Downpatrick runner-up, My Oakclahome and the Garrett Ahern-trained, Whoyakodding who all appear capable of hitting the frame.
  1. Mr Bolt
  2. Churchtown Glen
  3. My Oakclahome
