3/1

Returns to hurdling after showing herself to be a very capable chaser on her day; not raced over hurdles since last year but was in steady form including when winning at Fairyhouse in November; not so well handicapped but every chance nonetheless. .

Hat-trick seeking mare who followed up a surprise win at Kilbeggan in August when scoring at Downpatrick later the same month; obviously up in the weights be clearly in good heart and will be doing her best work in the closing stages.

Maiden hurdle winner over 2m4f at Bellewstown (good) in July and best effort in two subsequent starts came when 3L third over an extended 2m4f at Tramore (good) in mid-August. One to note in this contest.

Put up her best career performance at Clonmel earlier this week when winning with something in hand (albeit against some moderate rivals); races with a penalty here but in good form and could follow up.

Returns to hurdling after a decidedly unhappy spell over the larger obstacles; won over this distance at Punchestown in February but would need a career best effort to win this.

Capable hurdler who won at Limerick over 2m5f in February; has been mixing up chasing and hurdling since without success and may have to wait a while longer to win again off her current mark.

Off the mark over hurdles at the 11th time of asking when landing a Bellewstown handicap in July off a 12lb lower mark. Beaten into second place on three starts since but merits plenty of respect here.

Lightly-raced filly who won for the first time two starts ago at Wexford (2m4½f) in a maiden contest. Struggled to get competitive on handicap debut at Cork last time out and it may be a similar story today.

Has been chasing of late and not run in a hurdles race since 2018; did win a competitive handicap at Cork last August be struggled to get competitive off revised mark; could be more of the same in this contest.

19-race maiden still looking for a breakthrough success in 10 hurdle starts. Sixth of 24 on return after long break in August at Cork. Slowly slipping down the handicap; chances.

Has not beaten many home in three dismal maiden hurdle efforts and one handicap run to date. Last run was her most promising but other make more appeal on the balance of form.

Well beaten all starts in maiden hurdles and doing no better for the switch to handicaps more recently. Can't be entertained as the likely winner though place chance based on latest, more promising run.

Finally off the mark for connections at the 31st time of asking when landing a Cork 2m3f handicap hurdle on yielding ground in August off a 4lb lower mark. Returned to type last time out at Killarney and may struggle again here.

Betting

Forecast

Demi Plie (3/1), Touch Of Gold (4/1), Cailean's Angel (5/1), Finding Joy (6/1), Dragon Houdini (8/1), Lily Trotter (17/2), Miss Mcilroy (14/1), Amor Verdadero (16/1), Rock On Bennie (16/1), Costalita (16/1), Minx Tiara (20/1), Robin On The Hill (20/1), Torquay (22/1), Theatre Run (25/1), Daisy's Hollow (33/1), Horsenjockey (33/1), Seafield Fox (33/1), The Lady Of Brega (33/1)

Verdict

TOUCH OF GOLD raced with promise and intelligence when scoring at Clonmel a few days ago and comes into this contest full of confidence. She won with a little in hand and is certainly capable of scoring a quickfire double. The hat-trick seeking Finding Joy will no doubt be doing her best work in the closing stages similar to her lat two wins and she may be the one pushing the selection hardest. Amor Verdadero is a consistent sort who although does not look particularly well handicapped, should run her race and be in contention at the very least.
