9/1

Without success in seven starts over hurdles including a couple of dismal efforts at Clonmel and Killarney in the last five weeks. First time cheekpieces doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.

Four-race maiden who deserves a change of luck. The Lord Du Sud gelding has hit the frame in his last three starts over hurdles including finishing second of 14 beaten ¾L at Roscommon earlier this month. Progression to continue.

Finished nearer last than first in a couple of career starts three years apart. Well held here in a bumper in April following a 1111 days break. First-time blinkers need to weave some magic.

Made his debut in a Tralee point-to-point back in May over 3m eventually being pulled up. Beaten 86L on hurdling debut in a Cork 2m maiden earlier this month. Looks a tall order.

Dylan Thomas gelding out of a Namid mare. Cost €17,000 as a three-year-old. Dam won over 5f. Possibly uninspiring to see first-time hood for belated racecourse debut.

4/7

Appears to be progressing well in a couple of starts at Clonmel in June and at Roscommon over 2m5f earlier this month. Can go well again for trainer who has a 33% strike rate with his maiden hurdlers at this meeting in the last four years.

Betting

Forecast

The Abbey (4/7), Onlyhuman (7/4), Dunbar (2/1), Al Sakb (9/1), Shamash (10/1), Old Town Road (25/1), Killdevil George (66/1), Kingofthemountain (66/1), Remember Jack (66/1)

Verdict

The Yeats gelding THE ABBEY can get off the mark for connections at the fourth time of asking. The six-year-old has been running well in defeat in a couple of recent starts and can see off the attentions of the Eoin Doyle-trained Dunbar who finished second of 14 at Roscommon earlier this month and Onlyhuman who will be attempting to transfer solid and consistent form on the Flat over to hurdles on debut here.
