711-12OR:
16/1

Won maiden hurdle at Sligo in July before dumping his rider, and not discredited when sixth of 14 to Happy Jacky in handicap at Ballinrobe last time. Ran out once for former trainer, so one to be a bit wary off switched to fences.

14/1

Much his best effort over hurdles when winning a maiden here (2m5½f) in August, but unsighted twice since, including on chase bow at Roscommon. This is a little easier, but not hard to have reservations.

611-12OR:
7/1

Won over hurdles at Kilbeggan in June, and has shown fair form over fences since, his best effort when runner-up at that venue in August. Not disgraced last time, and one to consider.

Has shown virtually nothing over hurdles, and beaten 88L when last to finish on his first start over fences here a fortnight ago.

Ran a stinker when last seen, but finished a creditable third on last season's chase bow. Failed to progress from that. but could well bounce back given a long break and fitted with a tongue tie.

Winner between the flags and over hurdles. Made a satisfactory debut over fences when third at Tramore in June 2018, and entitled to have needed both runs since after absences. Not one to give up on.

511-12OR:
12/1

Maiden hurdler who didn't shape too badly when third of 14 to Western Sea in maiden at Sligo on chasing debut (Dasmyhoss fifth). Not the most robust, though, and remains to be seen if he can build on that.

Runner-up on initial chase start for Alan King, but has matched that form only once for current connections. Well below best in handicap company last time, and while this is easier, he needs to do much better. .

3/1

Winner on the Flat and over hurdles, and has shown plenty in a few chase starts, finishing a creditable second of 10 to Moskovite in mares maiden at Sligo last time. Solid place claims with a repeat of that.

711-5OR:
7/1

Off the mark over hurdles in July before a pleasing debut over fences at Tramore in August, finishing third of 7 over 2m5½f. Below that form at Sligo, behind Khudha and Dasmyhoss, but worth another chance to confirm initial impressions.

9/2

Solid and consistent sort over hurdles, and shaped with plenty of promise in a Roscommon beginners chase over 2m5f in July. Below that form, and behind Ar Eagla Na Heagla at Sligo last time.

Betting

Forecast

Ar Eagla Na Heagla (3/1), Guided By You (4/1), Shimmer And Shine (9/2), Alpha Indi (13/2), Dasmyhoss (7/1), Ayr Of Elegance (7/1), Highandmighty (12/1), Khudha (12/1), Cappuccino Man (14/1), Young Dev (14/1), Benefit Run (16/1), Stylish Moment (20/1), Easy Cash D'Alex (33/1)

Verdict

ALPHA INDI has a habit of going AWOL after declaration, but he is likely to show improved form for a change of stables, and has found a race that looks winnable based on his old ability. Ar Eagla Na Heagla ran into one in the shape of Moskovite last time, and looks best of the remainder, although Ayr of Elegance is probably worth forgiving a run behind a couple of these at Sligo, and has claims on the form of her chase debut.
