1211-12OR: 99C
4/1

Lightly raced over hurdles but has won three of his 11 starts over timber. Veteran is a C&D winner and has been running with plenty of spark on the Flat in the last month. One for the shortlist.

13/2

Daughter of Yeats still looking a first success over hurdles in 12 starts. Not disgraced in a couple of starts since returning to action in May and possibly best watched in this company unless market vibes suggest otherwise.

5/2

Off the mark for connections at the eighth time of asking over C&D last month off a 7lb lower mark. Life more difficult under a penalty but very much a leading player here.

Four-race maiden hurdler has failed to progress on her debut at Thurles in November. Only got as far as the second flight on first start for 194 days at Roscommon earlier this month. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Regular visitor to this venue since May, though well held on each occasion. Looks in the grip of the handicapper at present.

12/1

Sole win in 28 starts over hurdles came over C&D in October on soft ground off a 6lb higher mark. Has appeared to struggle in a number of below par efforts since with the manner and distance of defeat a major concern.

Has obliged to hit the frame on just the one occasion in 12 career starts over hurdles. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.

9/4

Course winner who has also won over this trip. Rated 102 over the larger obstacles, winning a Tramore handicap over 2m5f in May. Finished a creditable third of 12 at Sligo yesterday (Sunday) and worthy of another go here.

Betting

Forecast

Canadian Steel (9/4), Basil's Boy (5/2), King Of Aran (4/1), Yeats Mardy (13/2), Miracle Way (9/1), Caerleon Kate (12/1), Baltygirl (16/1), Winsor Vixen (20/1)

Verdict

The old warrior, King Of Arran is not to be taken lightly here but the 12-year-old may be liable to bump in to a couple of quicker types in the shape of CANADIAN STEEL. The gelding ran on well in the later stages to finish third of 12 in a Sligo contest 24 hours earlier over 2m4f and, if taking part, can play a big role in this contest holding off the potential challenge of Yeats Mardy and C&D winner Basil's Boy.
  1. Canadian Steel
