611-12OR:
100/1

Nothing of note in three maiden hurdle starts to date over a variety of trips. Hard to fancy on overall evidence and others hold sturdier claims in this event.

511-12OR:
50/1

Well held and no impression in three dismal maiden hurdle efforts since the turn of the year. Will need to improve on overall form to play a significant role in this contest in first-time cheekpieces.

511-12OR:
100/1

Modest form in a couple of point-to-point starts and well held in two starts under rules including a 48L reversal on hurdling debut at Killarney earlier this month. Plenty to prove at present.

11/10

Five-race maiden over hurdles. Last seen pulling up at the Cheltenham festival in March in the 2m5f Coral Cup. Progressive type and open to significant improvement in this contest.

611-12OR:
7/2

Second of eight beaten 17L on sole start over hurdles in a Punchestown 2m4f contest. Possible significant jockey booking for a yard who have one win and three places in this race in the last eight years.

66/1

26-race maiden without a win in 17 starts over hurdles. Sending out mixed messages in a number of starts since May with better performances coming over a similar trip. Will need to raise overall profile to play a role here.

511-12OR:
100/1

Gelding by Black Sam Bellamy out of a Sir Percy mare. Dam poor Flat performer for Richard Hannon Snr and Olly Stevens. One to avoid on rules debut.

711-12OR:

Promising fourth of six beaten a little over 9L on hurdling debut behind Al Sakb at Ballinrobe earlier this month. Appears to be up against it here.

511-12OR:

Gelding by Golden Lariat out of a Pyrus mare. Dam well held in a couple of disappointing efforts in this code. Unlikely to be a good sign that he already sports a hood on debut.

511-12OR: 116
8/1

Produced a career best in his fifth start over hurdles when finishing second of 12 beaten a head in a Cork maiden over 3m earlier this month. One for the shortlist.

611-5OR:
100/1

Patchy form in point-to-points but did win her maiden at Kinsale last time at the sixth time of asking. Well held when one pace on debut in a Killarney maiden hurdle earlier in the month. Others preferred.

511-5OR:
16/1

Not disgraced on debut in a Tipperary maiden hurdle in May before switching to bumper company and winning at the second time of asking at Roscommon earlier this month. Likely to be popular in the market.

611-5OR: C
5/2

Two from two on the Flat but the Beat Hollow mare has failed to live up to expectations in four below par hurdling efforts last term. Yard won this contest with Getareason 12 months ago.

611-5OR:
100/1

Useful form in the point-to-point ranks of late but has failed to hit the frame in three maiden hurdle starts to date. Unlikely to make a significant impact on stable debut.

Betting

Forecast

Dancing On My Own (11/10), Diamond Hill (5/2), Days Without End (7/2), Sky Marshal (8/1), Caer (16/1), Baily Thunder (50/1), Divin Desir (66/1), Killdevil George (66/1), Antigua Son (100/1), Cosmic Rock (100/1), Huckleberry Hill (100/1), Battle Away (100/1), Dubheen (100/1), Lariat Go (100/1)

Verdict

The Henry De Bromhead-trained DANCING ON MY OWN can land the opener under jockey Rachael Blackmore. The Milan gelding can be forgiven his last run in the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham festival and can get off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking at the expense of Diamond Hill, representing last years winning yard and Days Without End for Dermot Weld who has one win and three places in this race in the last eight years. Sky Marshal, second at Cork earlier this month and the Noel Meade-trained Caer both deserve further consideration.
