Fair AW Flat performer never really a factor on hurdles bow at Navan last month and is again best watched here.

4/6

Snapped up by current connections after winning at Ayr for Nicky Richards in the autumn, and improved when fourth of 10 to Envoi Allen in Grade 2 event before ending season with third in Grade One at Punchestown. Exciting novice the one to beat.

Placed in two bumpers last season but disappointed since and jumped poorly when ninth of 11 on hurdles bow at Gowran. Best watched.

7/2

Smart operator on the Flat where he scored three times in France. 4/9F but faded into second over 2m5½f at Galway last month. Step back in trip may help and looks sure to go close once again.

Poor Flat performer (rated 40) made no impression in two hurdle starts so makes no appeal here.

Never involved in races at Kilbeggan and Navan last month so can't be fancied here.

Some promise in opening bumper but disappointed next so on hurdles bow he's best watched after 17 months on the sidelines.

42-rated Flat performer beaten over 50L on hurdles bow at Navan last month; little more needs saying regarding his appeal.

Eventually fetched €88,000 as a three-year-old and needs to start repaying some faith following non-descript bumper efforts last winter. In good hands but others more appealing.

Dubai Destination newcomer out of a jumps bred unraced mare. Best watched on racecourse debut.

3/1

Point-to-point winner last May before landing a Navan bumper in good style in December. Slightly disappointing next at Fairyhouse but the sort to do better now over obstacles for top yard.

47-rated dual Flat scorer unlikely to have the ability to get involved here on hurdles bow.

Midfield staying on through beaten rivals on debut at Clonmel earlier this month and best watched again on that basis.

Didn't see enough to recommend her in bumpers at the back end of last season so can only be watched here.

Non-factor at Wexford and Roscommon in back-end bumpers last season so remains on the watch list.

Placed three-times in bumpers before her breakthrough came at Listowel. Listed race last time too hot but one of the more interesting newcomers today.

Pulled up in a couple of point-to-points in the spring and beaten wide margins in two similar events to this since.

Regressive mare on the Flat beaten out of sight in both hurdle races so readily dismissed here.

Point winner for last year's winning yard showed promise on hurdles bow before below par effort last time out. Sure she can do better here and has place claims.

Betting

Forecast

Beacon Edge (4/6), The Very Man (3/1), Ego Des Mottes (7/2), Shanroe (6/1), Mystery Stowaway (20/1), Punitive (33/1), The Three Wizards (50/1), Millen To One (66/1), Casamari Abbey (66/1), All The Mollies (66/1), Sarah Ash Calum (100/1), Memory Of Youth (100/1), Quay Melodie (100/1), Forza Libranno (100/1), Ruler Of Dubai (100/1), Arbourfield (100/1), Kind Witness (100/1), Miss Rossie (100/1), Jim Ja (100/1), Pass The Cristal (100/1), Old Town Road (100/1)

Verdict

Punchestown Champion bumper third BEACON EDGE wasn't far off the top bumper performers in the country last season and Noel Meade's youngster is fancied to make a winning start for Tu Va stables and Gigginstown House. Willie Mullins record with French imports is incredible and in Ego Des Mottes who probably got outstayed when second at Galway he has another sure-fire future winner. Three-time bumper winner Shanroe is also considered.
