20/1

Only won once over hurdles but returned from a lengthy break to finish second over 2m at Kilbeggan in July. Didn't convince in only previous 3m try but coughed post-race so can be given another chance here.

Yet to win over hurdles but always likely to need staying trips based on his Flat form and duly improved to finish third over this distance when last seen at the Galway festival. That form amongst the best on offer so highly respected.

Some promise early in his hurdles career but seemingly regressive now and unlikely to make it eighth time lucky based on recent efforts.

Won back-to-back handicap hurdles in July but handicapper had his measure since and he ran poorly at Bellewstown latest over this trip so others are more appealing.

Still yet to make the frame over hurdles but finished fourth on handicap bow when last seen in January. Winner rated 99 now so form hardly outstanding but is capable of making the frame here.

Off the mark over fences at the 14th time of asking for connections when landing a 3m Downpatrick handicap off a 13lb lower mark in June before a solid run at Limerick when last seen. In good order so respected now back hurdling.

Winner of a Kilbeggan handicap in June well held twice since off revised handicap mark. More needed here then but still relatively early days so is open to some improvement.

Now 13lb higher than when winning at Wexford over this trip in October last year but that largely due to her making the frame twice since. Handicapper has her on a tight leash but could still go well.

2m5f Sligo winner penultimately looked like he may appreciate this trip when second as odds-on fav next at Bellewstown over 2m4f. May yet have more to give and one for the shortlist here.

Handicap debutante finished second in maiden hurdles at Tramore (2m5f) and Wexford (3m) the last twice so certainly has ability and the requisite stamina to make her presence felt here.

Placed in his last two handicaps of 2018 before recent maiden third over the trip on stable debut after 328 days off the track. Not ruled out with possibility of more to come.

20/1 winner of this 12 months ago and followed up at Tipperary. Not quite at that level since but fourth at Bellewstown latest a fair effort so could go well although he is 9lb higher this year.

10/1

Bolted up in a Ballinrobe maiden hurdle in August and only found one too good in bid to follow up there next in handicap company. 5lb rise for that makes life tough but she's clearly in good heart.

Poor win record (1-23) but the mare is a pretty consistent sort at her level over staying trips and again ran well as recently as last week when second at Wexford. Each-way potential.

410-11OR: 99
8/1

Improved each time he's gone up in trip and duly got off the mark with something to spare over 3m1f at Killarney latest. 9lb rise for that makes life tougher but still young and unexposed so could easily improve enough to offset that.

Maiden of 13 is on a competitive mark at present as he showed again here as recently on Sunday. No surprise if he's thereabouts again but tends to find one or two too good.

Three-time Flat winner for Mark Johnston been tailed off in all of his four hurdle races in maiden company so hope higher than expectation on handicap bow.

Point winner makes handicap bow having been beaten a long way in three maiden hurdles. Longer trip and low weight may help a little now.

Forecast

Mindsmadeup (7/2), Silver Planeur (11/2), Walking On Glass (6/1), Theatre World (8/1), Ellipsism (8/1), Le Hachette (10/1), Chess Grand Master (11/1), Cloudybackwest (12/1), Oh'herewego (14/1), Mary Fields (16/1), Madaboy Cross (16/1), Lagenod (16/1), Lady Of The Sea (16/1), Dont Go Mad (16/1), Arctic Light (20/1), Classic Concorde (25/1), My First Symphony (25/1), Clonguile Way (33/1), Bye Bye O Bye (40/1), Qui Bono (50/1), Mambo Dancer (50/1)

Verdict

A fiendishly difficult contest this but the vote goes to the relatively unexposed four-year-old WALKING ON GLASS who looked well worth a go at 3m when running on over 2m4f latest having won the time before over 2m5f. Fellow four-year-old Ellipsism is one of two live contenders for Joseph O'Brien and although stable jockey JJ Slevin is aboard Chess Grand Master the younger horse makes the most appeal after winning well last time out.
