20:05 Kilbeggan Sat 10 August 2019
2016 Triumph hurdle winner at the Cheltenham festival has not made the switch to chasing without showing any signs of ability over the larger obstacles producing four dour efforts since May. Easy to oppose on handicap debut.
Winner of three of her 14 starts over fences hitting the frame on a further three occasions. Running well in defeat of late and could be still well handicapped looking at the full card.
C&D winner here in June of a novice chase beating five rivals including Ravenhill 6L. Recent efforts over hurdles and fences have been below-par and has not shown enough to be of interest here.
Veteran who is a C&D winner and has appeared to be returning to form in recent starts over the larger obstacles in runs at Tipperary and when second of 13 at the recent Galway festival. Entitled to be in the mix again.
Behind Draycott Place and Rocky Court at Ballinrobe in May the Stowaway gelding has gone on to suffer further defeats at Kilbeggan and Limerick last month. Winner of two of his nine chase starts it would be no surprise to witness a big run.
Continues to race to a remarkably consistent level and a career best third at Killarney last time. Never finished outside the first three in seven chase starts and holds strong place claims.
three from 18 over the larger obstacles including success over this trip at Navan in March off a 7lb lower mark. More than capable of another bold bid at this distance.
On a rather long losing run which continues to grow and despite the rapidly falling mark. Now racing 28lb lower than last winning mark the veteran is unlikely play a part in the finish in this contest.
Mixes hurdling and chasing with victories in both spheres. Wears a visor and a tongue-tie. Back to fences after returning to hurdles for two runs and on balance has something to find in this company.
