15/8

Very useful dual performer who won both on the Flat and over hurdles at this year's Galway Festival; this could be a tough ask off his current mark but is a horse to keep the right side of given his consistency and versatility.

Limerick maiden hurdle winner (2m3f) last November and won two chases subsequently before taking a break after disappointing in final hurdles start in April; certainly has ability and interesting to note market support on reappearance.

Finished third over 2m1f in a handicap hurdle at Ballinrobe (yielding) in August but has struggled on his last two starts and needs to bounce back to play a leading role here but has been eased in the weights.

Well held on all four starts between January and April; could well have improved for the break but difficult to assess his chances.

Fair hurdler/chaser; has some ability over hurdles though has just the one maiden hurdle to his name; edging down the handicap and much will depend on how fit he is after a seven month break.

Let down by a few error in jumping last time out at Fairyhouse and best judged on his previous run at Navan when finishing 2nd on his handicap debut; if his jumping errors can be kept to the minimum, he rates a fair chance.

Showed precious little ability on four starts over hurdles including on latest run in May on his handicap debut; will have to have progressed leaps and bounds during recent break to be taken as a serious betting proposition here.

Seems to be slowly getting the hang of things and has finished 5th on his last two starts; more improvement needed to get competitive on handicap debut but worth a check in the market.

Victorious by 11L in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m2f at Stratford (good-to-soft) in June.; showed his well being when finished 2nd at Gowran Park earlier this month and if reproducing that effort he holds every chance.

Long time maiden who has not shown the requisite ability over hurdles or fences to be considered as a serious contender running from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Linger (15/8), Our Jerry (4/1), The Abbey (9/2), Automatic (7/1), Miss Echrad (10/1), Pairc Na Ngael (14/1), Stephenstown (16/1), Port Rashid (20/1), Coral Blue (20/1), Rocky's Silver (20/1), Dunkereen (25/1)

Verdict

OUR JERRY bumped into a well handicapped rival last time out at Gowran Park and is taken to bounce back to winning ways. The gelding can race off a similar mark as when winning at Stratford in June and given a clear round the eight-year-old holds strong claims. Linger has plenty to do at the weights but given his reliability it would not be a surprise to see him giving the selection most to do. The Abbey would rate a good chance as long as he improves his jumping. If he can iron out those errors then he has plenty of ability and can make the frame.
