511-6OR: D
8/1

Winner of a Killarney maiden over this trip in May. Well held in a novice event at Roscommon and three-runner race at Downpatrick subsequently and may need a couple to falter to get his head in front.

3/1

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking in a 21-runner Cork maiden in June which followed a string of promising efforts. Held every chance when saddle slipped in decent Galway contest latest. Looks to hold every chance.

411-2OR:
3/1

A useful form on the flat before bolting up on his hurdles debut at Downpatrick in July. This is a tougher race but he won that day as though there was plenty of improvement to come. Excellent chance.

410-13OR:
6/1

Has not really progressed since winning a maiden hurdle at Downpatrick in May. Too soon to write him off but better recent form would have been helpful in assessing his true potential.

510-11OR: 112
5/2

Seven-race maiden over hurdles but has hit the frame on a couple of occasions. Fourth of 18 beaten 14L on his latest start in a Galway maiden in June. Not one to underestimate given the amount of experience.

410-4OR: D
8/1

Off the mark over hurdles on debut in a 2m1f maiden at Killarney in May. Looks to be a progressive sort and merits plenty of respect despite pulling up on latest start at Bellewstown.

410-4OR:

Has made no impression on both his hurdle starts to date and unlikley to be good enough to trouble the more fancied runners.

Betting

Forecast

Jon Ess (5/2), Construct (3/1), Rip Rocks Paddy Ok (3/1), Coolongolook (6/1), Morning Skye (6/1), Hammerstein (8/1), Feel Des Mottes (8/1), Stealth (66/1)

Verdict

This could come down to a dual between Rip Rocks Paddy Ok and CONSTRUCT with a slight preference given to latter who was most impressive on his hurdling debut at Downpatrick in July and there is no good reason why he should not be able to land this before going onto better things. The former obviously holds every chance given his racecourse experience and may have been a winner last time out if his saddle had not slipped. Feel Des Mottes could be the best of the rest should he be able to put a poor run last time out behind him. He certainly showed promise when winning at Killarney in May.
