711-12OR: 102
10/1

Has not gone on from winning a Punchestown handicap hurdle in December off a 17lb lower mark with a number of defeats since. Up in trip but may find a couple of better handicap sorts lurking.

611-12OR: 102
8/1

Without a win in five hurdle starts but produced a career best last time out in April at Sligo finishing second of 15 over a similar trip. Repeat of that effort should see her in the hunt for further prize money.

Off the mark for connections at the eighth time of asking in a Ballinrobe handicap hurdle last month off a 10lb lower mark. Beaten since and may be at the mercy of the handicapper.

511-12OR: 102
7/1

Without a win in seven hurdle starts but has hit the frame in three starts. Performed better on his most recent start finishing fifth of 13 at Kilbeggan but still appears to have plenty to prove in this company.

First-time tongue tie is unlikely to trigger any great improvement for the maiden of seven races over hurdles. Vast improvement needed to figure.

1111-10OR: 100
33/1

Has not built on an impressive win at Carlisle on first start for the yard in December 2017. The Westerner gelding has been left floundering in three comeback runs since May and is easily passed over here.

12/1

Upped 7lb for maiden success in a Sligo handicap back in April which followed on from a more promising effort at Limerick. Well beaten 26L on latest start at Punchestown and appears to be vulnerable off his revised mark.

Miserly return over hurdles of one from 17 looks set to continue here following a number of dour efforts since returning to action in March.

711-7OR: 97
25/1

Another in the field who has a stingy return of one from 19 over hurdles with sole success coming in a Punchestown maiden in December 2015. Not disgraced on return to action at Ballinrobe last month but more needed in this contest.

18-race maiden over hurdles who has appeared to go off the boil in a number of desolate efforts since April and is subsequently hard to fancy here.

1111-5OR: 95
12/1

One from 27 over hurdles and the King's Theatre gelding has looked way off the mark in three starts since the turn of the year including unseating rider at Ballinrobe last month. Not getting any younger and others look more convincing.

Not disgraced in three starts off a revised mark since landing a Fairyhouse handicap over a similar trip in February. No surprise to see her bounce back over this distance.

Failed to complete in a number of point-to-point starts before a series of dismal efforts over hurdles last month and more recently at Roscommon over 2m. Step up in trip not sure to suit.

Sent off a big prices up to 66/1 in four hurdle starts since February, running accordingly on each occasion. Out of sorts and impossible to fancy against these rivals.

Seven-race maiden hurdler who has hit the frame on a couple of occasions. Last seen under rules finishing last but one in a Tramore 15-runner handicap in August.

Eight-race maiden hurdler who has hit the frame on a couple of occasions for previous handler and could have each way claims on stable debut.

Three-race maiden hints of improvement in a Punchestown contest earlier this month finishing fourth of 23 beaten 21L. Improved performance on handicap debut would not be a major shock.

Comes in to this race on the back of 19 defeats over hurdles. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here on stable debut.

410-11OR: 95

Five-race maiden hurdler who went down by a neck to Glendaars Warrior at Roscommon recently, finishing second of 18 in a 2m handicap. Should be a leading player in this company.

Without success in five hurdle starts including a couple of innocuous efforts in handicap company recently. Will need to improve on overall form to play a role in this contest.

Forecast

Peaches And Cream (7/2), Party Playboy (7/1), I'm Serious (7/1), Bronson In Blue (8/1), Ashqar (9/1), Our Roxane (9/1), Breesy Mountain (10/1), Youngnedofthehill (12/1), Bracka Lily (12/1), Shantou Warrior (12/1), Classic Escape (16/1), Tahan (16/1), Hewick (18/1), Mother's Best (20/1), Beeper's Ruby (20/1), Winsor Vixen (20/1), Wolfofallstreets (20/1), Back To Bataan (25/1), Jazz Ranger (25/1), It'll Do Rightly (33/1), Laughing Trix (33/1), Bronco Bill (33/1), Theophilus (50/1)

Verdict

The Redoute's Choice gelding, ASHQAR would not have to improve too much to land the spoils in this contest. The four-year-old can built on his most recent run at Roscommon earlier this month and get off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking over hurdles. Second last time out, Bronson In Blue can emerge as the biggest danger for the Champion hurdle winning yard of Gavin Cromwell, while, Beepers Ruby and Jazz Ranger can go well at big prices.
