1211-10OR: 135C
14/1

Veteran course winner who retains plenty of ability, successful in back-to-back handicaps at Thurles in December/January. Below form on return at Kilbeggan in June, however, and has it to do in this contest.

Winner of a Ballinrobe maiden hurdle on second start over timber in May. Ran well on latest start in a Listed novice hurdle at the recent Galway festival. One to consider.

6/1

C&D winner of a handicap hurdle in June off a 9lb lower mark. Worth noting trainer has a 40% strike rate - six from 15 - at this venue in the last 12 months as well as trainer/jockey winning this contest 12 months ago.

7/2

One from 14 over hurdles but the Ask gelding ran well in defeat at the Galway festival last month finishing fifth of 20 beaten 8L over 2m5f on good ground. Bit more needed but enters calculations.

5/1

Off the mark at the fifth time of asking at Wexford in April off a 13lb lower mark before finishing sixth behind Roxboro Road as beaten favourite at Fairyhouse a little later in the month. Needs a couple to falter.

One from seven over hurdles but has had a couple of interrupted seasons in the last couple of years. Not seen since November and best watched on return to action.

4/1

C&D winner over 12 months ago and better than her last run at Killarney last month suggests. Comes in for consideration with trainer/jockey boasting a 53% win and place strike rate - 19 from 36 - in the last 12 months.

Has lost his way over hurdles since scoring well on his debut at Fairyhouse in January. Not one to place a great deal of faith in.

Verdict
