711-7OR:
20/1

Dual point-to-point winner at 3m who has struggled on all her hurdles appearances including falling on debut. Best effort came last time out at Wexford so can't be ruled out entirely.

611-7OR:
8/1

Unfancied and well beaten on only hurdle appearance at Navan in March; hard to assess but unlikely to be good enough with only the market providing possible clues.

511-7OR: 97
9/2

Failed to land a blow on each of her three starts since returning from an eight-month absence. This is an uncompetitive affair though, and it would be a disappointment were she not to finish thereabouts.

711-7OR:
12/1

14-race maiden on the flat and is a half-sister to a 2m winner. Not disgraced on sole hurdle appearance at Kilbeggan last month and there could be more to come from this mare now she has some experience.

Last RunWatch last race

25/1

Has shown a glimmer of promise on all three hurdles outings including last time at Cork; certainly one to consider given the standard of the opposition.

411-2OR:
66/1

Struggled on the flat, struggled in two point-to-point outings and struggled on only hurdles appearance at Downpatrick last month. Hard to fancy.

411-2OR:
16/1

Unseated rider before the start of her only racecourse appearance in a mares maiden hurdle at Cork earlier this week. Showed some promise once the race started and quick reappearance looks a good sign. Interesting.

4/9

Looks the form pick after finishing close up on her last four appearances. Certainly deserves to win a race of this type based on those efforts and clearly the one they have to beat.

411-2OR:
7/1

Shirocco filly who failed to complete in any of her three career point-to-point starts since March before posting a laboured effort in a Ballinrobe bumper in May. Beaten over hurdles twice since and not one to place a great deal of faith in.

Betting

Forecast

Volatile Lady (4/9), Misty Mountain (9/2), Zalika (7/1), Kilcarry View (8/1), Traidisiun (12/1), Be Yourself (16/1), Cushinstown Finest (20/1), Afternoonwithsusan (25/1), Altumanina (66/1)

Verdict

Hard not to make a case for VOLATILE LADY who has been most consistent without getting her head in front on her last four starts with her best effort coming in a handicap hurdle at Galway. She can win this before going back into hurdle company. Be Yourself is turned out quickly after running a fair race at Cork earlier this week and looks the type who will improve in time. While not really impressing Afternoonwithsusan has shown enough on all her outings that she could make the frame here.
