811-12OR: 110
10/3

Is 0-19 over hurdles but is a winner in chasing as he scored at Wexford over 2m4f back in July. Finished second of six on his return to hurdles last time at Clonmel (2m½f). Has gone up just 1lb. One for the shortlist.

711-6OR: 101C
8/1

Was in good form in 2018 as he scored twice over hurdles. He has been below his best this year so far. He was eighth of 10 on his latest effort at Ballinrobe (2m2½f). Has dropped down 2lb in the weights. Others makes more of an appeal.

Still looking for his first success following 21 starts. Returned to action at Ballinrobe (2m½f) where he was pulled up in a 15 runner contest. Will have 2lb less on his back here but he needs to improve.

11/2

Was successful over fences two starts back at Downpatrick (2m3f). Returned to hurdles last time where he had just one runner behind him in a nine runner field at Kilbeggan (2m3½f). Needs to bounce back from latest run.

25/1

Still a maiden after 14 starts. Returned to action after over one year off the track last time at Downpatrick (2m3f) where he finished 12th of 14. Has since switched yards but others make more of an appeal here.

1010-12OR: 108
12/1

Experienced gelding who has won three times over hurdles. Has mainly featured over fences this season where he has been running consistently well without success. Is 8lb lower than his last winning hurdles mark. One to consider.

7/2

Dual-purpose gelding who won over hurdles at Kilbeggan (2m) in 2018. Was third of six last time in a handicap at Stratford (2m2½f). Has been eased 5lb which puts him on a very winnable mark. Leading contender.

610-10OR: 92
33/1

Yet to get off the mark in eight races, six of which have come over hurdles. He was fifth of eight on his latest appearance at Kilbeggan (2m3½f). Remains off the same mark so he needs to improve to be in the mix.

610-6OR: 82
14/1

Is 0-8 and his form has yet to improve since joining handicap company. He was 45L off the winner last time at Ballinrobe (2m6f) when he came home sixth of 13. Hard to make a case for him on what he shown to date.

1110-6OR: 99
16/1

Was very disappointing last time out at Down Royal (2m6f) as he was 15th of 17, 73L behind. Has been eased 3lb by the handicapper. Takes a big step down in distance which is likely to help his chances. One to watch.

1010-4OR: 92
11/1

Has yet to score this year in seven attempts over hurdles. She was a little better than her previous form when finishing fourth of nine at Downpatrick (2m3f) on her latest start. Down 1lb so she has each-way claims here.

410-0OR: 100
8/1

Still a maiden after 23 appearances. He was fourth of 12 on his last outing at Perth over 2m, beaten 11L. Has been eased 4lb by the handicapper and he is stepping up in distance here. One to think about.

Betting

Forecast

Licklighter (10/3), Falak (7/2), Muroor (11/2), Viscount Wilson (8/1), Castlehume (8/1), City Limits (10/1), Solar Heat (11/1), My Manekineko (12/1), Betterask Jj (14/1), Winston Wolfe (14/1), Comehere Hi (14/1), Whatever It Takes (16/1), Arizengo (25/1), Lough Sewdy (33/1), Havelock (66/1)

Verdict

FALAK is yet to score this year, however, the handicapper has given him a real chance of success again with this latest mark. His jumping has let him down recently, however, he should be able to bounce back here and record his second win over hurdles. Licklighter was not far away last time Clonmel and he can't be ruled out as he looks for his first hurdles success, while My Manekineko can finish in the frame off this latest mark on his return to hurdles.
  1. Falak
