611-12OR: 95D
14/1

Point-to-point winner back in March and almost won another over this C&D back in May, only picked off late after being a little keen. This won't take a lot of winning, and he has chances on his handicap debut.

12/1

Veteran that was very useful in his heyday, but those days a long time gone, with no win under Rules for over three years; might come on for recent run after an absence and this is weak, but even so, others make more appeal.

611-9OR: 92C
7/2

Only win in 15 starts came over hurdles here last year, but she might have doubled her tally were it not for unseating late here last time out (was still in front); nudged up in the weights but a clear round should see her on the premises.

611-8OR: 91D
12/1

Twice a point-to-point winner this year and has hit the frame in two points over this C&D this summer too, so conditions fine; tried in a tongue-tie today, stays well and as long as the rain stays away, is one to consider.

911-7OR: 90
7/2

9yo has just the one win to show for her 30 starts, but in truth she's more consistent than most and tends to run her race more often than not; another decent effort last time and with conditions fine, could hit the frame again.

711-1OR: 84
11/2

Still a maiden after 14 starts, stayed on through beaten horses to finish a remote third at Sligo last time and this step up in trip should suit; now tried in a hood, which may help the situation, but others more persuasive.

611-0OR: 83
12/1

More letters than numbers in recent form, which is never a good thing, although it doesn't tell the full story as she has shown some ability and has a possible excuse for latest pulled-up effort; not the biggest surprise if she ran well here.

810-11OR: 80D
10/1

One win in 29 starts, that coming in a Thurles hurdle last year, shaped a little better on reappearance run a fortnight ago than a midfield finish suggests and could improve off that, but in truth probably needs to.

1410-10OR: 79D
10/1

Yet to trouble the judge in 16 starts but is a multiple point-to-point winner in his time and a couple of efforts this summer make you think there's a race in him, but at the ago of 14, best days surely well behind him now.

1010-8OR: 77
8/1

No wins or places in ten starts and hasn't been seen on a racecourse for over three years now; might yet make a chaser as there's low mileage on the clock, but can surely only be watched after a mammoth absence.

610-1OR: 70D
10/1

Just one win in 36 starts and looks of very limited ability these days; pulled up when last seen out at Sligo and needs to do a whole lot better to get involved here.

Betting

Forecast

Tara Mia (7/2), Open To The World (7/2), Unchago (11/2), Warreedy (8/1), Mr Bolt (10/1), Maureen's Star (10/1), Court Adjourned (10/1), Our Bonus (12/1), Crutches Lad (12/1), Quiet Account (12/1), Nabraska (14/1)

Verdict

This will not take a lot of winning, something demonstrated by the fact the 14yo Mr Bolt can be given a reasonable chance of success. Tara Mia will probably be the one to beat if she can put a clear round together but that's not a guarantee. Open To The World looks sure to be in the frame if she runs her race but despite some awful looking form figures it might be worth chancing OUR BONUS, who has run a little better than her form figures suggest and might be capable of the surprise. Nabraska has been pitched in the right race to begin with and can be considered.
