13:30 Tramore Thu 17 October 2019
No impression on second start over hurdles when finishing fourth of 24 beaten over 10L at Fairyhouse over 2m2f when last seen in April. Worth noting in the betting.
Shaped well on March debut finishing second of 14 beaten 9½L in a Limerick maiden. Promise of that run has all but disappeared in three subsequent dismal efforts over hurdles and in a couple of bumpers. Others look open to more improvement.
Nothing of note when in the care of trainer Aidan O'Brien and has failed to build on a pleasing debut run over hurdles at Tramore in a couple of starts since. Not one to be ruling out just yet.
Gelding by Imperial Monarch out of a Supreme Leader mare. Closely related to three-time winner, running between 2m3f and 2m7f, Duneen Point. Winner of a May point-to-point and likely to improve on Roscommon debut finishing fifth of 16.
Gelding by Imperial Monarch out of a Good Thyne mare. Half-brother to hurdler/chaser, Macs Flamingo and decent hurdler, Parish Business. Well held in three bumper starts before disappointing on hurdling debut last month. Others look more convincing.
Daughter of Beneficial, failed to complete in a couple of point-to-point starts before finishing down the field in a couple of career maiden hurdle starts last month. Likely to find it tough going here.
Daughter of Saddler Maker out of a Cadoudal mare. Pulled up on sole point-to-point start in March and market likely to be the best guide on rules debut.
Daughter of Mountain High out of a Presenting mare. Dam unraced half-sister to to point-to-point/2m5f hurdle winner Saddlenomore. Can be expected to improve on debut run at Roscommon last month and a leading player in this company.
