Five-race maiden who deserves a change of luck. The Lord Du Sud gelding has hit the frame in his last four starts over hurdles and can produce another solid effort here.

Without success in five hurdle starts when posting a number of disappointing efforts since returning to the track in June. Handicapper relents but still plenty of work to be done.

Three starts in Irish point-to-points only yielded a runner-up slot on her last start in that realm. Last seen over two years ago representing the Fergal O'Brien yard and is difficult to fancy on return.

Six-race maiden in bumpers, the mare finished seventh of 20 beaten over 12L on hurdling debut at Punchestown in June, before a couple more poor efforts since. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.

Betting

Forecast

Roney (2/1), Think Positive (3/1), Dunbar (4/1), Bold Gesture (7/1), Alice O'Byrne (8/1), Ishyaboi (8/1), Elegant Dan (20/1), Boro Melody (33/1), A Legal Beauty (50/1), Papal Present (50/1), Spare Capacity (66/1), Our Madgie (100/1), Gragara Tara (100/1), Long Island Jenn (100/1)

Verdict

Although disappointing in a number of bumpers for the yard, the Willie Mullins-trained THINK POSITIVE can get off the mark at the first time of asking over hurdles. The stable hold a 36% strike rate with their maiden hurdlers at this meeting in the last four years and the Jeremy gelding can see off any challenge in the shape of point-to-point winner, Alice O'Byrne, the solid and consistent Dunbar and potential improver, Roney.
