10/1

One of four in the race for owner, the gelding won a fourth career chase win when landing a Kilbeggan 3m1f handicap off a 7lb lower mark on good to yielding ground last month. Another bold bid likely.

An unlucky loser last time out when falling at the last when holding every chance at Gowran Park (3m1f yielding); good sign that he is turned out again so quickly and looks to hold every chance.

Has been in desperate form since winning a novice chase at Down Royal in March (although with some excuses); no excuse last time at Clonmel when a well beaten 5th of 6; hard to currently get excited about.

Well backed when winning a handicap chase at Downpatrick last month; still quite inexperienced over fences but certainly going in the right direction; more to do here but has chances.

Won a beginners' chase last year at Downpatrick in September 2018 but has been mostly out of form this year over hurdles/on Flat and all sorts of improvement to be found to match the pick of these.

Not disgraced in five starts since returning to action following a 618 day lay-off in June. One of four in the race for leading owner and worth a market check as post time approaches.

Modest 108-rated handicap hurdler. Nothing of note in four starts over fences to date including when a distant 6th of 8 last time at Sligo . Looks a tall order on form shown.

Has a poor finishing rate in chases since winning at Leopardstown in March 2018; only race since last chase outing was winning a handicap hurdle at this track in December; difficult to assess.

Decent bumper and hurdles performer. Has yet to win over fences but the ability is there; has raced infrequently of late and last seen trailing in 6th of 7 at Wexford in July over 3m1f on good ground; probably not up to winning this.

Has been pulled up on his last two racecourse appearances in March and September; has form on heavy ground so any more rain should enhance his chances.

Veteran not won since 2016 and not made the frame in five starts in 2019; makes little appeal.

Fairly unexposed as a chaser and put in one of his better performances last time out at Sligo, finishing well after a sluggish start; up 3lbs for that effort but may still be on a handy mark though win/run ratio is pretty dire.

3-53 record and not won a race since July 2016. Placed three times earlier this season but not made the frame in most recent four runs so confidence dwindling now.

12-race maiden well held on all three chase starts to date when beaten over 30L on each occasions. Impossible to fancy on that evidence.

Maiden hurdle winner at Killarney (2m6f, good) in May. Well held on all three starts over fences so far including on handicap debut last time out at Kilbeggan in August; others preferred.

Respectable effort last time out over 3m at Roscommon when finishing a lucky second; drop back in trip should be no problem but lacks overall reliability to be given a serious chance here.

Forecast

Artic Pearl (10/3), Global Racing (9/2), Fruits Of Glory (7/1), Graineyhill (8/1), Riviera Sun (10/1), Shanpallas (10/1), Biddy The Boss (12/1), It's Only A Number (12/1), Ard Na Carraig (14/1), Fiveaftermidnight (14/1), Hilltop Supreme (14/1), Hash Brown (16/1), Little Haarth (25/1), Bosco Di Alco (25/1), Sunrise Lady (33/1), Tongie (33/1)

Verdict

GRAINEYHILL was arguably an unlucky loser last time out at Gowran Park when making a mistake at the last with the race at his mercy. A clear round should see him holding every chance and the fact he is turned out again so quickly is a huge positive. Topweight Riviera Sun won well last time out and is obviously racing with a lot of confidence, if he can defy a modest rise in the weights then he should run his race and hold every chance. Global Racing was well supported to win his race at Downpatrick in September and while still inexperienced over fences, he is clearly going in the right direction and can give a good account of himself.
