Winner of a Killarney maiden over this trip in May. Well held in a novice event at Roscommon subsequently and may need a couple to falter in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Avenir D'Une Vie (6/5), Lethal Steps (6/5), Hannon (2/1), Cenotice (5/1), Hammerstein (11/2)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained LETHAL STEPS is taken to finally add to his maiden hurdle win at Sligo in April. The four-year-old ran well in defeat at the recent Bellewstown meeting earlier this month and can step up here to land the opener at the expense of higher rated pair, Avenir D'Une Vie for the Henry De Bromhead yard and Canford Cliffs gelding, Hannon.
