11/2

Generally consistent over hurdles though put in one of his weaker performances last time out when failing to follow up a promising effort the time before (both at Galway). Chance on best of form but need to put poor run behind him.

Failed to follow up on a novice hurdle win at Cork in May when well beaten in two subsequent handicaps. More needed but holds strong place claims.

One from ten over hurdles, the gelding's sole win coming in a Roscommon 2m maiden hurdle three years ago. Third of seven at Sligo this month was his best recent effort for sometime but needs to back that up once again.

Fairly consistent chaser but has not got competitive in a hurdles race in the start of 2017; possible he could translate chase for to hurdles but it takes a small leap of faith.

3/1

Only two career wins over hurdles have come at this track including when staying on well to win over this trip last time out. More on his plate up in the handicap but going the right way and no reason he can't be in the shake-up.

Ran well when finishing 3L third in a competitive handicap hurdle over 3m at Leopardstown (soft) early last month. Running off a similar mark here and definitely one to consider.

Has mainly been campaigned over fences in the past few months and has struggled since winning at Down Royal in May. Return to hurdles may freshen him up and not without a chance on his best form.

Won a two-mile chase at Perth in July but his hurdles form over the past year has not been inspiring; may need to drop a few pounds in the handicap to get seriously competitive.

Wonderfully consistent mare who runs off the same mark when finishing a good third at Downpatrick recently; certainly has a good chance in a race with no real well handicapped rivals.

Betting

Forecast

Mon Storm (3/1), Iamastartoo (9/2), Callthebarman (5/1), Dawn Raider (11/2), Adimelo (13/2), Mutadaffeq (7/1), My Manekineko (16/1), Presenting Mahler (20/1), Alohamora (20/1)

Verdict

ALOHAMORA is in good order at present evidenced by her place finish in a competitive handicap hurdle at Leopardstown in March. Long absence is slight cause for concern but she still might be progressive enough to land this contest. Iamastartoo is a consistent type who ran a decent race last week at Downpatrick and a repeat of that effort will be good enough to get close here. Mon Storm loves it around this course and his recent win is pretty reliable form. Whether he can win off a career high mark remains to be seen but is clearly in good order.
