711-9OR: 99
18/1

Good third in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Thurles (good-to-firm) last November. Well held at a big price upped to 2m7f there the following month and is worth a check in the market on return from a break.

Course winner ran well to finish third in a 2m handicap hurdle at Tipperary (good-to-yielding) in May. Disappointed on soft ground on the Flat there subsequently and return to jumping is in his favour.

Placed twice over hurdles last year including at Clonmel (2m4f, good) in October. Market support would be notable on his first start of 2019.

Returning from a break when finishing third over 2m at Tramore (good) in May. Pulled up over the same C&D nine days later and needs to return to form to figure in this event.

Broke his maiden when winning a 2m3f handicap hurdle on good ground here at the end of May. Fair fifth off this 6lb higher mark subsequently and drop back in distance no issue.

Victorious in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m1f at Ballinrobe (good) in April. Well held in two subsequent starts however and probably best watched at present.

Failed to figure in four starts over hurdles including on handicap debut at Tipperary (2m, good-to-yielding) in May. Others hold stronger claims on return from a break.

Betting

Forecast

Celtic Dancer (5/1), Ard Na Carraig (5/1), Still Alive (5/1), Cloak Of Darkness (7/1), Jessamine (10/1), Desertmore Dreamer (10/1), Ainmisfearr (11/1), Liclash (12/1), Meet The Man (16/1), Naturally Blond (16/1), Hey Groovy (18/1), My Lovely Boy (25/1), Try Dollys Sister (25/1), Fly De Megaudais (25/1), Shedding (50/1)

Verdict

STILL ALIVE looks capable of putting a disappointing Flat effort behind him to take this competitive looking handicap hurdle. The selection was placed on his most recent jumps start and with forecast ground conditions in his favour he can get the better of Celtic Dancer who was a winner here in the spring while third place can go to Hey Groovy who is making her return from a break.
