19:05 Kilbeggan Sat 10 August 2019
Winner of a Cork bumper in April before a 35L defeat on hurdling introduction over 3m in a Cork maiden in May. Improved effort would not surprise.
First-run gelded son of Motivator out of a Monsun mare. Won on final Flat start in Germany last September for trainer J-P Carvalho. Likely to be a warm order in this company.
Well held on both hurdle starts to date before a couple of below-par efforts on the Flat in June and July. Others preferred.
Haateef gelding out of a One Cool Cat mare. Dam, twice raced over hurdles, sprint winner who stayed 1m1f on the Flat. Failed to complete in two point-to-point starts last year. Easy to dismiss.
Tikkanen gelding. Full-brother to 2m6f-3m2f chase winner and a half-brother to a 2m6f-3m jump winner. Tailed off on debut maiden hurdle run at Kilbeggan last month.
Hints of improvement on third and most recent hurdle start at Limerick over 2m4f last month finishing fifth of 10 beaten 9L on good ground. More needed again.
Five-race maiden who is yet to get near the frame on any of his starts to date Difficult to see where improvement is coming from.
Three-race maiden well held on hurdling debut at Cork last month and first time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.
Improved performance on his ninth start over hurdles finishing second of five at Ballinrobe last month beaten 2¾L in a career best effort. Needs to maintain momentum here.
