Barring his run at Punchestown the other three starts have been to a consistent level and won in decent style at Bellewstown last time. This is a significant step up however.

Gelding by Mahler out of a Bach mare. Dam, maiden hurdler, half-sister to decent hurdler/chaser Will Jamie Run. 20/1 and despite failing to settle made a winning Wexford debut in June. This though will require significant improvement.

Well beaten fourth in a maiden hurdle last time. Previously made a winning bumper debut at Cork in April. That probably wasn't the strongest of races but place possibilities.

612-0OR: BFD
9/4

Racing to a consistent level in three bumper starts to date and followed a Tramore win with a second to Bentham at Bellewstown. Stable in good form and likely to be involved.

Daughter of Presenting out of an Accordion mare. Dam chase winner over 2m1f in Grade 2 company and over 2m/2m4f in a Grade 3 contests. Made all on Ballinrobe debut in May and likely to improve again. Leading stable won three of last four renewals.

Failed to win in six point-to-points and has failed to be competitive in three bumper starts to date. Easy to overlook.

Salutino gelding out of a Blueprint mare. Completely tailed off on debut but showed much improved form to finish third at Sligo. This though would require significant progress again.

Well beaten in two starts so far at Limerick and Fairyhouse. Hard to see her finding the improvement required to be involved.

Betting

Forecast

Meticulous (6/5), Blazing Emily (5/4), Rocket Lad (9/4), Bentham (9/2), Jack Hackett (9/1), Cabin Hill (10/1), Gearoid (16/1), Kingram Lady (33/1), Tico Times (50/1)

Verdict

METICULOUS has been well tried and his form is in a different class to his opposition, so this looks an excellent opportunity to resume winning ways. Blazing Emily represents a stable with a superb record in this race and could be a big improver. They look the pair to concentrate on although Rocket Lad is taken to improve past Bentham and chase the pair home.
