511-12OR:
8/1

Kilbeggan bumper winner in July, ran well in defeat on hurdling debut in a Tramore maiden in August over 2m5f, finishing third of 12 beaten 1½L. Not exactly built on that in two further runs but suited by this trip.

511-12OR:
6/1

Made light work of good chance to get off the mark in bumper at Kilbeggan in July (2m4f, good; 8-13f), scoring at sixth attempt. Looks likely to relish trip on hurdles bow.

511-12OR:
5/2

Listowel bumper in September (fifth start) and beaten in head-bobber on hurdles bow at Roscommon (2m4f, heavy; 7-1) on hurdles bow next time. Has run well again since at Punchestown and should well again upped in distance.

611-4OR:
20/1

Has failed to complete in a couple of maiden hurdles since a promising third of 14 on debut at Galway a little over 12 months ago. Attracted some market support last time, before falling at the first back at Galway; not written off.

11/1

Better effort on return when close fourth in Cork bumper (2m3f, yielding; 16-1) recently and interesting to see if that can be built on back over hurdles.

511-4OR:

Cost €70,000 as a three-year-old, Germany gelding. Fifth of 17 beaten 32L on hurdling debut in a Punchestown contest last month and more needed here for respected connections. Can improve.

Made the frame on second start in point-to-points in April and shown enough in pair of September bumper runs to suggests he will have a future going jumping and up in trip.

511-4OR:
100/1

Unplaced in five starts so far, including maiden hurdles at Kilbeggan (2m2f, good to yielding; 66-1) and Roscommon (2m4f, heavy; 100-1). Lots to work on.

511-4OR:

Flame And Glory gelding, third at Naas on hurdles bow in February (2m, good to yielding; 13-2) and fair efforts afterwards in bumper at Clonmel and Punchestown. Upped in trip for hurdles reappearance.

511-4OR:

100-1 and tailed off both starts in maiden hurdles last month at Punchestown (good to yielding) and Clonmel (soft), goes up from minimum distance now and plenty to find.

Carlotamix gelding out of a Portrait Gallery mare, ran well enough in a bumper here last month on debut; sharp rise in trip now turning attention to jumping.

Betting

Forecast

Royal Thief (11/10), Shanwalla (5/2), Santana Plessis (6/1), Ballymacaw (8/1), Four Country Roads (11/1), Amerijano (20/1), Hell On Earth (25/1), Oscar Montel (40/1), Silver Sedge (50/1), Ruler Of Dubai (100/1), Pivotal Pursuit (100/1)

Verdict

It took him a while to get on the board in bumpers but SANTANA PLESSIS did it eventually when tackling 2m4f at Kilbeggan in July and this further examination of stamina looks a positive for him on his hurdling debut for a prolific trainer/jockey combination. Shanwalla, Royal Thief and Amerijano are also considered while Four Country Roads showed more in a bumper at Cork recently and gets the chance to build on that now back over hurdles.
