911-10OR: 121D
11/1

Winner of two of her 22 starts over hurdles including a win over this trip but the Well Chosen mare races 14lb higher than her last winning mark and her current struggles look set to continue.

More recently seen on the Flat and the daughter of Casamento has been running well over hurdles since the turn of the year including a win at Ballinrobe in April. Worth a market check.

Solid and consistent British raider who landed the third win of her career from nine hurdle starts at Warwick in May. This race clearly her target since and very much one to respect.

Took a Grade 3 bumper when trained in France, gradually getting the hang of hurdles. Off the mark for current connections in a 2m handicap at Southwell last month off an 8lb lower mark. British trained mare holds leading claims.

Well held, beaten 20L behind Ming Dynasty at the recent Bellewstown meeting earlier this month when making her handicap debut. Could be more to come representing a yard among the winners this week.

Landed the second win of her hurdling career from eight starts at Wexford last month off a 5lb lower mark. Repeat of recent efforts should see her in the hunt for more prize money.

Running well in defeat of late in a couple of spins on the Flat. Two from nine over hurdles and has appeared to struggle from her current mark 15lb higher than her last win at Ballinrobe over 14 months ago.

Has been running with a great deal of consistency in bumpers and over hurdles since April. Latest start can be readily ignored given the rider dislocated his shoulder. Likely to be in the mix.

Off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking over hurdles when landing a Downpatrick maiden hurdle over 2m3f last month. Carries a penalty for recent deeds but far from certain to halt a big effort in this contest.

Has failed to build on her win at Kilbeggan last month when well held and never nearer in a couple of starts at Downpatrick and Sligo earlier this month. Capable of bouncing back.

One from 13 over hurdles and currently on a seven race losing run over hurdles as the daughter of Yeats attempts to come to terms with her higher mark since winning at Wexford two years ago. Plenty of questions to answer at present.

Scored in the mud at Roscommon last month, but struggled off her revised mark since being well beaten in a number of starts including a desolate run on the Flat at Fairyhouse earlier this month. Hard to fancy.

Daughter of Arcadio impressed when getting off the mark for connections at the third attempt over hurdles in a Limerick maiden over 2m earlier in the month. No surprise to see a big run once again.

Nine-race maiden over hurdles who produced a career best on her latest start at Kilbeggan last month. The daughter of Pivotal kept on well over 2m to finish third of 13 beaten 4¾L. Place chances if events go her way.

Solid and consistent seven-race maiden hurdler who deserves a change of fortunes having hit the frame on no less than five occasions. Holding her form recently and a notable contender here.

610-3OR: 100D
33/1

Daughter of Papal Bull has come right back down to be racing off her last winning mark achieved when landing a Tramore handicap over 2m two years ago. Makes limited appeal but any market move would be worth noting in first-time cheekpieces.

Three-race maiden who needs to improve on what she has shown so far. Worth a check in the market representing a yard that landed the spoils here 12 months ago with Rovetta.

Five-race maiden hurdler who has been running well in defeat in a couple of recent starts at Wexford and Roscommon earlier this month. Should be a leading contender in this company.

Solid and consistent hurdler who has won one of her 17 starts over timber as well as hitting the frame on a further nine occasions. Holds place claims if things fall her way.

Forecast

Walking In Memphis (6/1), Ena Baie (8/1), Buttons And Bows (8/1), So Lonely (9/1), Bercasa (10/1), Miss Sassie (10/1), Like An Open Book (11/1), Dolly Dancer (11/1), Dandjira (12/1), Iamastartoo (14/1), The Last Indian (14/1), Lucky Phil (14/1), Something Sweet (16/1), Sizing Malbay (16/1), Pivotal Flame (20/1), Ballydunblaze (20/1), Gotthenod (25/1), Touch Of Gold (33/1), Sand Fly (33/1), Stormy Tale (33/1), Beat Of The Sea (33/1), Mistheatre (50/1)

Verdict

Preference is for the British raider SO LONELY who has been progressing nicely for trainer Dan Skelton since being dropped in trip to win three of her last four starts over hurdles. The daughter of So You Think can land the spoils ahead of the solid and consistent Something Sweet under jockey Brendan Powell, Iamastartoo fro trainer Noel Meade and the Jessica Harrington-trained Dandjira who is better than her beaten distances suggest.
  1. So Lonely
  2. Something Sweet
  3. Iamastartoo
