611-12OR: 113
16/1

Running well in defeat on a number of occasions since making his maiden hurdles debut 11 months ago. Deserves a change of luck and first-time cheekpieces may assist.

Five-race maiden over hurdles but has hit the frame on a couple of occasions. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive in this contest.

811-12OR: 109
16/1

15-race maiden over timber who is in a desperate run of form right now appearing to struggle in a number of challenges over hurdles and more recently over the larger obstacles. Needs to improve on even his best form to play a role here.

511-12OR: BFD
5/2

Beginning to frustrate supporters failing to win his last two contests as favourite. Only went down by ½L on hurdling debut at Tramore earlier this month, when headed close home over a similar trip. Likely to be popular in the market again.

511-12OR: D
7/2

Winner of a Catterick bumper for trainer Simon West in December but has shown little or no signs of ability in a couple of starts for new connections. Still looking no nearer to first hurdling success.

611-12OR:
50/1

Once a 75-rated handicapper on the Flat for trainer Mick Halford but had, over a couple of year, tumbled down to a basement mark of 44 by April. Best watched on hurdling and stable debut.

711-5OR:
25/1

Four-time winner on the Flat but had shown little or no aptitude in recent starts over hurdles before a promising run at Kilbeggan earlier this month. Repeat of that effort could see another bold bid.

511-4OR: 85
33/1

Now without a win in eight starts over hurdles and has been, overall, struggling in a number of starts since the turn of the year. Others have more scope for improvement.

611-4OR:
50/1

Sent off at big prices on his first couple of starts over hurdles, running accordingly on each occasion and unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest.

Last RunWatch last race

511-4OR:
66/1

Well beaten on maiden hurdle debut at Killarney before tailing off in a Downpatrick maiden over 2m5½f when last seen 12 months ago. Others preferred.

511-4OR: 97
25/1

Maiden of three starts but plenty of encouragement can be taken from the Roderic O'Connor gelding's run at Thurles when last seen in November. Capable of a big run on return to action if in the mood.

Last RunWatch last race

511-4OR:
16/1

Improved markedly from first to second hurdle start when finishing second of 14 at Ballinrobe last month. Capable of hitting the frame if in the same form.

Last RunWatch last race

511-4OR:
100/1

Lightly raced, Lawman gelding, pulled up when weakening at halfway before tailing off before four out on debut run here in March. Will need to improve to figure.

Last RunWatch last race

611-4OR:
4/1

Generally well held, despite the encouraging finishing positions in three career hurdle starts to date. Likely to hit the frame once again but always susceptible to a quicker one.

Last RunWatch last race
17
1011-4OR:
50/1

Showed a glimmer of promise over hurdles several seasons ago. Returned from five-year absence to unseat in a point last month before falling, at the water, in a Perth novice chase earlier this month. Needs a chunk of improvement to play a role here.

Last RunWatch last race

510-11OR:
33/1

Well held and never nearer in a couple of bumper starts before a creditable fourth of 17 beaten 20L on hurdling debut at Listowel earlier this month. Not ruled out.

Last RunWatch last race
19
810-11OR:
66/1

Winner of one of his nine point-to-point starts, but has failed to complete in a couple of starts since returning to action in February. Unlikely to be playing a part in the finish.

Last RunWatch last race

510-11OR:
40/1

Well held and beaten by long distances in a couple of career starts at Ayr and Perth recently. Hard to fancy until showing signs of ability.

511-4OR:

First Reserve: Beaten over 130L in each of his last two starts over hurdles, the latest of which came in April. First time Cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Betting

Forecast

Mam Trasna (5/2), The Second Coming (7/2), Ificudiwud (4/1), Jon Ess (5/1), Erratic Path (5/1), Dedanann (16/1), Licklighter (16/1), Organised Solution (16/1), All For Nothing (16/1), Convara (25/1), Best Not Argue (25/1), Dromline (25/1), Ashton Court (33/1), Clancypantz (33/1), Falkland Castle (33/1), Island Mahee (40/1), John Mor (50/1), Yamato (50/1), Briggitie's Hill (50/1), Corus Girl (66/1), Casamicciola (66/1), Hague Convention (100/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott yard have a 36% win and place strike rate at this meeting in the last four years and their, MAM TRASNA can get off the mark at the second attempt over hurdles. The five-year-old can continue the good form of the yard with the Gigginstown House Stud-owned, Ificudiwud possibly emerging as the biggest danger. Jon Ess, if repeating his Fairyhouse form from April and the Denis Hogan-trained, Licklighter look capable of hitting the frame.
