511-12OR: 109
14/1

Handicap debutant from a top yard not beaten far the last twice at Perth and Ballinrobe in maidens and despite being saddled with top-weight here he ought to make a bold bid.

Placed five times in novice events and far from disgraced in handicap debut last time when fourth of 14 at Ballinrobe off this mark. Each-way possibilities here in the big field.

9/4

Won three over hurdles in 2016 for JJ Hanlon and although he lost his way subsequently he has rediscovered his touch of late on the Flat and now 17lb lower than his last win over hurdles he is hugely respected here.

Disappointed when pulled up in a Listowel 2m1f handicap chase on soft ground in September and in a moderate ninth of 10 at Cork following a win at Killarney off a 8lb lower mark. Had a break here and must bounce back.

Dual hurdle winner has looked out of sorts in four dismal efforts since May. Handicap mark continues to fall but hard to be confident in the Kalanisi gelding at present.

7/2

Won a Down Royal maiden hurdle last month before finishing third of eight on an encouraging Flat debut at Roscommon and second of nine at Ballinrobe since. Back over hurdles now he must be respected while in such good form.

In contention when unseating at the last at Kilbeggan in May over fences and again a faller when last seen at Limerick two weeks ago. Now goes back hurdling in a bid to regain a little confidence.

Dual-purpose mare who has never been a factor in four runs on the level this year. Back hurdling here but will have to transform her fortunes after really dismal efforts the last twice.

Only won one of his 21 races over obstacles but return to hurdling latest saw an improved effort when third of eight at Sligo. This is a tougher ask but again he has place claims.

Handicap debutant placed four times in maidens and may yet nick such a race. Opening mark here no gift so will need to show his best form to play a part.

Will have disappointed connections since landing a Limerick handicap hurdle in October with a number of heavy defeats since including well beaten fifth on return at Down Royal.

14/1

Well backed (9/1 from 14s) when off the mark latest in a six-runner Ballinrobe maiden (2m1½f). Looked like stamina his forte there so strong pace here could be ideal but little doubt this a tougher ask.

511-8OR: 105
16/1

Dual-purpose performer with 0-22 career record, but has been in good order on the Flat with latest third of 18 at Fairyhouse further evidence of that. If he arrives in the same vein here he ought to be competitive.

Bumper winner yet to find his feet over hurdles and was well beaten on the Flat at the Curragh last time out just eight days ago. Not seen enough to recommend him.

711-8OR: 105BF
14/1

Dual chase winner is 0-18 over hurdles but when last seen over the smaller obstacles he ran a more than respectable race to be second of 12 at Clonmel. Similar effort here should see him go close and jockey booking a statement of intent.

14/1

Back over hurdles and back on song latest with a second of 14 (beaten 10L) at Kilbeggan under Davy Russell who now jumps ship to ride Cats For Cash. Handicap debut and not one to be taken lightly given yard he hails from.

81-rated Flat performer placed in three of his five runs over hurdles in maiden company and is far from dismissed here on handicap debut in first-time blinkers.

Placed in first two maiden hurdles before fourth of 16 at Tipperary latest representing a similar level of form. Handles big fields so should be at home here and one of the more interesting ones given unexposed nature.

Has been desperately disappointing on the flat of late. Well-beaten latest when 15th of 16. Most recent run came over hurdles when never able to land a blow. Best watched until showing more.

Yet to hit the frame in eight starts over hurdles but produced her best effort for sometime when finishing fourth of seven beaten 10L in a Cork novice contest over 2m3f in May. Pulled-up since however so again best look elsewhere.

Betting

Forecast

Linger (9/4), Convara (7/2), Dumhach Thra (8/1), Morning Skye (12/1), Dandjira (12/1), Callthebarman (12/1), Whatsinthecorner (14/1), Cats For Cash (14/1), Castlehume (14/1), Al Sakb (14/1), Monkeylou (14/1), De Mazzaro (16/1), Staged Engagement (16/1), Volatile Lady (18/1), Roachdale House (20/1), Empire Burleque (20/1), Sticky Situation (25/1), Lady In Lavender (33/1), Water Sprite (33/1), The Irregular (33/1), Act In Time (40/1), Magic Sea (50/1), Colour Me In (66/1)

Verdict

Obviously in such a big field there are a host of interesting propositions but none more so than LINGER who has been in form on the level and now returns to hurdling as a potentially seriously well treated horse. Cats For Cash is an interesting handicap debutant for all-conquering connections and Whatsinthecorner also appears likely to make his presence felt back over hurdles.
