Won three times on the Flat for Johnny Murtagh at up to two miles. Signs of ability at around this level some starts this term but form is patchy. Eased 1lb since latest modest effort.

Punched out to score over fences at Perth last time and tries to exploit a much lower mark over hurdles for yard that has gone a little quiet after being red-hot a few weeks ago. Chance if able to replicate current chase form over timber.

Landed Wexford 2m4f h'cap chase in June and was challenging 2 out there last time when falling. Is a previous C&D over hurdles so is respected if recovered from his recent tumble.

16 runs without success for Alan Fleming and makes debut for new handler here. Runs over hurdles for first time since September when third at Listowel off 2lb lower mark but clearly finds winning very challenging.

Landed Clonmel 2m maiden hurdle last September then absent for more than eight months prior to respectable return at Kilbeggan. Further seven-week break prior to latest seventh at Ballinrobe and longer trip now may help.

Landed fine handicap hurdle hat-trick this spring and continues to run well despite much higher mark. Good third last time after two-month break and useful young rider claims 5lb.

Showed she stays with 2m6f maiden hurdle win at Killarney in May 2018 and was second over 3m at Thurles in February. Probably needed outing after a break when 10th at Cork last time and may do better on this occasion if there's a decent gallop.

1-32 record tells its own story and that came over 7f as a juvenile at Down Royal in 2017. Didn't run badly when mid-division at Galway last week but others make a little more appeal.

Bougt for €44,000 in November out of Mick Halford's yard having run well in two Flat maidens. Finally began to look a possible winner when getting his act together with good third last time at Limerick and repeat effort might take him close.

Had shown little prior to improved effort latest at Wexford when stepping up beyong 2m for the first time. Handicap debut with first time tongue-tie and cheekpieces and may not be far away.

No luck in point-to-points but made winning Rules debut over 2m7f at Donwpatrick in September 2016. Not seen since finishing last of six a month later and clearly has had major issues. More than likely to be better for this return run.

Runner-up in handicap hurdles three times last year and raced over C&D in May. Further three-month break to overcome but is interesting with 7lb claimer on board.

Shock 40/1 Listowel bumper winner last September and hasn't shone in four hurdle outings this term including when beaten long way on handicapped bow. Reportedly flipped pallet there and no surprise to see tongue-tie added now.

Veteran whose last win came here very nearly four years ago off a much higher mark. Absent eight months prior to spin on the Flat recently, but on balance has plenty on his plate.

Dual winner over obstacles in France in 2016 but has shown very little since for a variety of handlers and has only been lightly raced. Very hard to enthuse over.

18-race maiden but has run well a couple of times this season including when third last time out at Killarney over a furlong further having led until approaching last. May go well again at fair odds.

Well beaten in two 3m handicap hurdles this spring, pulling up at Tipperary on his most recent run in April. Eased just 2lb and makes little appeal.

Nine races so far and yet to finish placed. Shaped a bit better at Killarney last time on first run for over seven weeks. Needs to back that up though.

Forecast

Smithscorner (9/2), Luis Van Zandt (9/2), Callthebarman (6/1), Scotch Quay (8/1), Featherinyourcap (8/1), Cloak Of Darkness (8/1), Elusive Don (9/1), Nibblers Charm (11/1), Wolfofallstreets (12/1), Magic Sea (12/1), Harrys Gift (12/1), Cerealice (12/1), Citizen Al (14/1), Betterask Jj (16/1), Elegant Dan (16/1), Circling Moon (18/1), Coolmill (25/1), Buster Dan Dan (25/1), Double Take (28/1), Important Message (33/1), Do No Complain (33/1)

Verdict

Plenty of runners but LUIS VAN ZANDT has the look of a horse who is ready to win his race and he has a top man doing the steering. Harry's Gift is another who is open to improvement and a big effort would not surprise, while such as Featherinyourcap, Smiths Corner, Scotch Quay, Elegant Dan and Cloak Of Darkness are others who appear to be going the right way.
