Didn't achieve in four Flat runs for Aidan O'Brien, but the gelded son of Galileo was runner-up on stable/hurdles bow at Tramore last month before a solid run in defeat at Wexford earlier this month. Capable of a bold bid.

Gelding by Imperial Monarch out of a Supreme Leader mare. Closely related to three-time winner, running between 2m3f and 2m7f, Duneen Point. Dam unraced. Winner of a May point-to-point and likely to be popular in the market on rules debut.

Rio De La Plata gelding out of a Montjeu mare. Cost $6,500 as a yearling. Not discredited on second start over hurdles at Wexford earlier this month but plenty of improvement needed to play a role here.

Six-race maiden, beaten favourite last time out and still in contention when unseating rider at Ballinrobe in July following a couple of promising starts at Kilbeggan and Sligo. Capable of a big run if fully ready on return to action.

Milan filly whose dam was a winner in a 2m1f hurdles contest, while she also prevailed on the Flat at trips up to 1m4f. Needs to improve on moderate debut appearance in a Galway maiden hurdle earlier in the month.

Below-par form in France was followed by a fall and a 107L defeat in a couple of dismal efforts earlier in the year. Will no doubt be returning from vigorous schooling and market check essential.

Betting

Forecast

Union Gap (2/1), Fou Diligence (11/4), Hereditary Rule (6/1), Formentera (7/1), Tomeric (10/1), Ashqar (10/1), Frankincense (11/1), Arthur Fonzarelli (14/1), Alfa Mix (16/1), My Uncas (20/1), Birdie Blitz (25/1), It's A Hoofer (25/1), Paula's Prayer (33/1), Sharg (33/1), King Con (66/1), Northern Love (100/1), Saltmarket (100/1), Tribal Story (100/1), My Bonny Prince (100/1), Colour Me In (N/A), Tuatha De Dannan (N/A)

Verdict

The Noel Meade-trained, UNION GAP was not disgraced in a number of starts during a summer jumping campaign and can return to action here to get off the mark for connections at the sixth time of asking over hurdles. The four-year-old gelding Tomeric is clearly better than his last start suggests and can make life difficult for the principles along with Listowel second Fou Diligence and the returning Willie Mullins-trained Formentera.
