411-7OR:
11/8

French import who was second in lone hurdle start in his homeland won with plenty in hand on his stable debut in a Punchestown maiden hurdle. Tougher ask now but yard's record with ex-French trained runners is highly compelling in his favour.

16/1

Kilbeggan maiden hurdle winner ran right up to that level latest when third in a warm contest at Ballinrobe earning and official rating of 123. Ought to make his presence felt here in this deeper contest.

411-7OR: 126BF
10/1

Only won one of his 12 starts over hurdles but placed in a further eight and remains in consistent form coming into this with his official rating of 126 well deserved. Should as usual make a bold bid.

411-7OR: D
3/1

French import ran encouragingly on debut at Fairyhouse over 2m in a Grade 2 juvenile hurdle in February before winning a 30-runner Balllinrobe maiden last in May. Looks a bright prospect then for a top and very much in-form yard.

411-7OR:

72-rated Flat performer got off the mark at the second time of asking over hurdles in an 18-runner Tipperary maiden earlier this month. Will have to improve in this well above average novice hurdle.

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking in a 21-runner Cork maiden earlier in the month which followed a string of promising efforts. Upped in class here however he must find more progress.

Tailed off behind Rip Rocks Paddy Ok at 100/1 latest and likely be similar odds here.

Placed in his last three handicaps so ought to win a race soon enough but given they have been off marks in the 90s he looks at least 20lb short of what will be needed.

Unplaced in seven on the Flat and beaten out of sight in two for this yard. Faces an impossible task on hurdles debut.

411-0OR:

66/1 second on hurdles debut was very promising but he couldn't follow it up at Sligo two weeks ago when eighth of 10. Must bounce back in this stronger contest.

Hurdles debut 14th of 21 at Cork in-keeping with his two efforts in bumpers and he can only be watched in this company.

411-0OR:
100/1

Without success in 21 starts now and hurdles likely to make any significant difference especially at this level.

411-0OR: BF
7/1

Hurdles debutant by Nathaniel only ran twice on the level last summer at the Curragh showing ability in each. Tough ask on hurdles bow but as he's from a top yard he is an interesting newcomer.

410-7OR:
20/1

Shown ability in last two of her three hurdle races with fourth and third placed finishes in maidens. Will have to improve again to make the frame in this company but still open to progress.

Betting

Forecast

Authorized Art (11/8), Morosini (3/1), Winner Takes Itall (7/1), Lethal Steps (10/1), Rip Rocks Paddy Ok (11/1), Rasiym (12/1), Flindt (16/1), City Ballerina (20/1), Ashqar (25/1), Indian Admiral (50/1), Stealth (100/1), Acrux Cass (100/1), Little Saint (100/1), Herdwick (100/1)

Verdict

In a very warm contest featuring six previous winners they look the way to go despite each carrying a 7lb penalty. Willie Mullins ability to convert French recruits into top performers is infamous and in AUTHORIZED ART he could have the next in line of such based on his impressive Irish debut. Almost as unexposed and just as promising is Morosini who showed his ability on debut in a Grade Two before making no mistake in a maiden. More exposed than the aforementioned duo but probably just about with the best form; Lethal Steps also must be considered.
