Winner of three of his last four bumper starts since July. The son of Jeremy has plenty to offer making his hurdles debut though connections might not want the ground to become too testing.

Has done little wrong on all four bumper starts to date including in the Cheltenham Champion Bumper in March; very interesting contender on hurdles debut and very much one for the shortlist.

Followed up a gentle introduction at Punchestown in February to win a Kilbeggan bumper in June on good-to.yielding (form has worked out well); certainly one to take note of on hurdling debut.

Robin Des Champs gelding; dam won bumper sole start; not disgraced on racecourse and hurdles debut at Galway recently; should progress from that but might not be up to winning against some classy rivals.

Won Punchestown bumper on debut last December before being steady away in better class contests on his next two runs; should want further than this in future but interesting on debut if conditions turn testing.

€20,000 purchase as a three-year-old by Milan out of a half-sister to Gold Cup winner Bob's Worth; never really a factor on only racecourse appearance at Gowran Park last March; hard to make a case for.

Fair effort on racecourse debut over hurdles over this course and distance in February before running a good race in a bumper at Navan in March; slightly difficult to assess and market may provide clues.

Winner of a point-to-point at Dromahane in April for Paurick O'Connor; reasonable effort on sole racecourse start for new connections at Galway in October; entitled to improve and difficult to write off easily.

A €1,200 three-year-old, Millenary filly. She's closely related to smart hurdler/chaser Sharp Rise. Well down the field in her initial hurdle starts at Limerick and in April at Fairyhouse finishing 65L adrift of the winner.

Forecast

Blackbow (4/9), The Very Man (11/4), Embittered (7/2), You Can Call Me Al (11/1), Cavalry Master (14/1), Bentham (16/1), Thebellsofshandon (25/1), Key Commander (33/1), Spruced Up (33/1), A Different World (40/1), Even Flight (50/1), China Princess (50/1), Saint Or Sinner (50/1), Forrard Away (50/1), Dawson's Gate (50/1), You Should Have (50/1), Rightplacerightime (66/1), Rocconrockall (66/1), Good Ol Days (66/1), Amber Run (100/1), Sol Milan (100/1), Unlaoised (100/1), Northern Love (100/1), Mattie's Mountain (100/1), She's Commanche (100/1), Stormy Master (100/1), Moylisha (100/1), Diamond Grove (N/A)

Verdict

If BLACKBOW can translate his bumper form to hurdling then he looks the one to beat where despite the large field there are only a few with real chances. Given his consistency and level of form then he should have the natural ability to score on his debut especially if receiving strong market support. Bentham is another interesting debutante and if able to show the form he produced in bumpers then he could turn into a useful hurdler. The Very Man would have won last time out if not falling at the final flight. If over that mishap then he looks the best of those who have seen a hurdle.,
