1
1111-11OR: 100
33/1

Returns to hurdles for the first time in two years. Now racing 3lb lower than last winning mark and needs to step up on previous efforts to get involved here.

2
511-11OR: 100
9/1

Genuine type off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking in a Kilbeggan maiden over 2m4f earlier this month. Well held on return to handicap company at Tramore and market likely to be the best guide.

3
1011-8OR: 97C
33/1

Remains 1lb higher than when winning at Tipperary last October but has really struggled since in a number of dismal efforts including a 24L defeat here last month. Will need to raise overall profile to play a role.

Last RunWatch last race

711-7OR: 96
12/1

Off the mark at the fifth attempt in a Sligo maiden over 2m last month. Well held on handicap debut earlier this month but not one to be writing off just yet.

5
611-6OR: 95
10/1

Posted a career best effort when third of 11 beaten 5½L here over 2m1f on yielding ground earlier this month. Entitled to make the shortlist and appears to have more to offer.

6
511-6OR: 95C
8/1

Running well at this track, including when getting off the mark at the 11th time of asking earlier this month over 2m5½f from a 5lb lower mark. Should be a leading contender in this company.

Last RunWatch last race
7
1111-4OR: 93BFC
11/2

Stingy return of just one hurdle success in 29 starts. Sole win came here off a 7lb lower mark. Beaten favourite on most recent start when second of 11 and can go well once again but always susceptible to one or two better handicapped sorts.

Last RunWatch last race

711-1OR: 90
12/1

Mixed bag over hurdles since returning from a 12 month break last month. Place claims where it would be no surprise to witness a big run.

9
1011-1OR: 90CD
5/1

One from 14 over hurdles where his sole win came over C&D over three years ago off a 6lb higher mark. Likely to go well with a number of conditions to suit.

Last RunWatch last race
10
511-0OR: 89
5/2

Career best effort over hurdles finishing third of 17 beaten 5¼L at Killarney on handicap debut on Friday. Quick turnaround and holds place claims if things fall his way.

Last RunWatch last race

510-13OR: 88
25/1

Nothing of note in four below-par efforts including three maiden hurdle spins since March. Possibly best watched unless market vibes suggest otherwise.

Last RunWatch last race
12
810-12OR: 87
20/1

Struggled twice on the Flat following a return from a 705-day absence before a couple of hurdle defeats at the Galway festival and here over 2m1f on yielding ground last month. Liable to find a couple stronger.

Last RunWatch last race
13
810-9OR: 84
25/1

Well held in three starts since winning a Galway handicap hurdle last September including on return to action at Sligo earlier this month. Others have more scope for improvement.

Last RunWatch last race

810-5OR: 80
33/1

Not a great deal to shout about in five modest handicap hurdle performances since May and needs to improve significantly if he is to play a role here on stable debut.

Betting

Forecast

Happy Jacky (5/2), Kansas Kid (5/1), Youngnedofthehill (11/2), Sizing Malbay (8/1), Pat Coyne (9/1), Derby De Thaix (10/1), Benefit Run (12/1), Hickey's Rock (12/1), Crafty Codger (20/1), Baby Bellini (25/1), Aspire To Fly (25/1), Oh'herewego (33/1), Hugh Divots (33/1), Chief Of Panama (33/1)

Verdict

Recent winner at this venue, SIZING MALBAY can add to her win earlier this month over a 2m5f trip. The daughter of Flemensfirth can build on a number of solid runs here since last month, holding off any challenge that may be forthcoming from course winner Youngofthehill, Derby De Thaix, third at this track earlier this month and C&D winner Kansas Kid.
