511-12OR: 94
14/1

Much better on latest start when fourth (third over the line, but disqualified) over slightly shorter here last time; goes handicapping a weak enough race and on a workable mark, so has to be shortlisted.

711-12OR: 94
33/1

First start for new yard, not progressing and pulled up on latest start at Listowel last month; just the one win in 24 starts and on that alone, opposable for win purposes.

C&D winner here in August and only 3lb higher today, two lesser efforts since then temper enthusiasm but these are her conditions, and she could bounce back.

711-9OR: 91C
16/1

Improved to win over slightly shorter here two weeks ago, finishing off well to grab the prize in the final strides, so the extra distance here should be no issue. On same mark for handicap debut and solid chance.

10/1

Winner over 3f shorter here in August, has shown the odd sign of temperament but generally consistent, likes it here and should stay this far; could bounce back from a moderate effort last time out.

Two efforts back from a long absence have revealed little, and most disappointing as he was made favourite both times; with a top yard but something to prove now, and others preferred.

611-9OR: 91D
10/1

Gained his first win in 19 starts when successful over this trip at Ballinrobe last time out, battling on well, but a 7lb rise may well require more today. No good thing to follow up, given overall profile.

711-5OR: 87
25/1

Point-to-point winner last year, and put in a better effort when third to Cushintown's Finest here last time, beaten under two lengths. Needs to build on that but that's not impossible, and she is another to consider in an open event.

611-3OR: 85
11/1

With a top trainer now (formerly the winless-for-ten-years Aytach Sadik) and may well improve on her recent debut for the yard where she was well beaten at Navan. One to be very interested in, especially if there's some money around for him.

Last RunWatch last race

Still a maiden after 21 starts and although there is the odd good run to show for his efforts, he's not really progressing and may simply find others more willing here.

910-12OR: 80
25/1

Yet to hit the frame after 12 starts and the addition of a hood seemed to do little to improve things last time out; not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.

Last RunWatch last race

810-12OR: 80
11/4

Winner of his last two chase starts, both in England, running out a ready winner both times; connections taking advantage of his much lower hurdles mark here and if he is ready to go after a break, has a major chance here.

910-12OR: 80
20/1

Won a low-grade chase by 18l at Cartmel two starts ago but couldn't back that uo at Sligo last time out, which rather highlights his inconsistency. On a fair mark and excellent jockey booking, but comes with plenty of risk attached.

Betting

Forecast

Herbiegoesbananas (9/4), Impressive Duke (11/4), Balgowlah (7/1), Greenandwhitearmy (10/1), Humps And Bumps (10/1), Sporty Yankee (11/1), Electricitywork (14/1), My Galway Girl (14/1), Cushinstown Finest (16/1), Charlotte Wells (16/1), Bracka Lily (20/1), Mash Potato (20/1), Boston Babe (25/1), Drumconnor Girl (25/1), Lady Of The Sea (33/1)

Verdict

A few of these have a bit to prove, not least Herbiegoesbananas after two disappointing efforts but there's surely better to come from SPORTY YANKEE now he's in the care of Gordon Elliott and he's taken to come on for his first start for the yard and take this. Electricitywork faces an easier task than a few he's faced and can improve, and similar comments apply to Drumconnor Girl as well .Impressive Duke is on a very good mark if fit.
