Running well in defeat on the Flat, the gelding needs to up his game here back over timber. Yard won this race in 2016 with Swamp Fox.

Travelled well before extending his lead to win by 11L on hurdling debut in a Kilbeggan maiden over this trip last month. Entitled to make the shortlist for yard who won this contest 12 months ago with Gold Seal.

Winning bumper found the step into Grade 2 company at Aintree in April one too far finishing well down the field before returning to form at Tramore over this trip last month. More needed in this company but capable of grabbing a place.

Off the mark for connections at the ninth time of asking winning on soft ground in April off an 18lb lower mark. Not disgraced in four starts since and capable of a bold bid.

Beat Razoul a neck on his latest start over hurdles at Roscommon in June off a 7lb lower mark. Concern for yard form and looks up against it in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Morosini (6/4), Top Moon (7/1), Hannon (7/1), Gardens of Babylon (8/1), Lethal Steps (9/1), Razoul (14/1), Zoffalee (14/1), Nibiru (16/1), Blackhillsofdakota (20/1), Ashqar (25/1), Rocky Shores (25/1), Flindt (25/1), Coral Blue (25/1), Rip Rocks Paddy Ok (33/1)

Verdict

The Gordon Elliott-trained, LETHAL STEPS looked to have plenty in hand when landing a competitive contest at the Galway festival finishing 2L ahead of Morosini. The pair appear capable of running big races again at the expense of the Joseph O'Brien/J P McManus pair, Gardens Of Babylon and Top Moon. the Seamus Fahey-trained, Coral Blue can go well at a price.
