511-5OR: D
12/1

Has left ordinary hurdles form behind in winning both chase starts at Clonmel and Limerick. Must give weight away to higher-rated rivals here, though, and will do well to maintain his sequence.

Well beaten on chase debut, but much improved since, and off the mark when scoring at Tipperary last time by 6½L from Cenotice. Needs another career best to trouble pick of these, though.

511-1OR: D

Ex-pointer. Made a successful hurdles debut in June at Kilbeggan, but has gone backwards since, and well held on handicap debut last time. Should make a chaser, but looks out of his depth at this level.

1011-1OR: C
1/1

Top-notch hurdler in his prime. Came to chasing late in life, but had plenty in hand when beating Cliff House at Ballinrobe on his first try. Sure to do better, and stable jockey rides, so merits plenty of respect.

610-12OR:
7/4

Grade 3 winner over hurdles last term, and already as good over fences, winning both starts at Killarney and Kilbeggan. Can do better still, and should run a big race.

710-8OR: 100BF
18/1

Well placed to win four on the bounce over hurdles last season (three at Perth), and better effort over fences when 2½L second of 9 to Feeling The Love in maiden at Tipperary last time. Fair bit more required at this lofty level.

Betting

Forecast

Wicklow Brave (1/1), Robin De Carlow (7/4), Zero Ten (3/1), Moon Over Germany (4/1), Jan Maat (7/1), Cool Colonnade (12/1), Make My Heart Fly (18/1), Paddy Buns (66/1)

Verdict

Wicklow Brave and Moon Over Germany set the standard on what they have achieved, but with the former late to chasing and the latter possibly flattered by his Aintree win, they look vulnerable to a progressive rival, and ROBIN DE CARLOW is fancied to find enough improvement to upstage her elders.
