711-12OR:
66/1

Dual bumper winner last year but failed to sparkle over hurdles and tailed off on chase bow at Tramore (2m6f, heavy) in October; better effort later that month at Wexford but more needed once again to get competitive.

611-12OR: CD
80/1

Was in fair form over hurdles last February before disappointing for the rest of the season; big ask to see him being able to land this on chase debut.

711-12OR: D
66/1

Fair hurdler, not typically bred for this game however and eventually beaten 50L on chase introduction over 2m2f at Galway in early October before falling at the same track later the same month; difficult to make a case for.

611-12OR:
100/1

Had completed just one of his four point-to-point outings before showing very little on his two two chase outings in October (beaten combined over 100L); no reason he will improve yet.

511-12OR:
66/1

Narrowly won Fairyhouse bumper on New Year's Day but generally disappointed in two maiden hurdles subsequently; plenty to prove on chase debut but worth a check in the betting ring.

611-12OR:
50/1

Off the mark over hurdles for connections at the fifth time of asking when landing a Fairyhouse maiden in February; some fair effort since over hurdles and not without a chance on his chasing debut.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR:
20/1

Useful hurdler (3rd top rated in the line-up); proved difficult to win with but one of the more likely types on chase debut given his overall consistency over the smaller objects.

711-12OR: BF
14/1

Very smart hurdler; head and shoulders above these rivals on official ratings over the smaller obstacles; fair effort on chase debut at Limerick despite running in snatches; headgear may help here and looks to have a leading chance.

511-12OR:
18/1

Earned his place at Cheltenham with some promising runs in maiden hurdles from the turn of the year; finally off the mark at Fairyhouse in April; interesting contender on chase debut.

611-12OR:
7/2

Was very consistent and slightly progressive over hurdles last year and if continuing in that vein over fences then he is capable of running a decent race for leading connections.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR:
12/1

Consistent hurdler at the beginning of last season before struggling in better contest on his final two starts; interesting debutante from respected stable and worth keeping an eye on his price in the market.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR: D
66/1

Another consistent hurdler who may have a future over fences; no real show on only appearance in a chase last season; entitled to improve and difficult to ignore.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR: C
25/1

Fair hurdler on his day; two chase efforts separated by six months hardly inspire confidence and plenty to prove over fences on first run since June.

Last RunWatch last race

711-12OR:
8/1

Front runner who showed some useful form over hurdles last season; not beaten two far on only appearance over fences last year in a maiden hunter chase; hard to dismiss easily.

Last RunWatch last race
15
611-12OR:
50/1

Won a maiden hurdle around this time last season but failed to follow up on two subsequent starts; entitled to improve given he is fairly lightly raced but difficult to make a strong case for only second chase start.

Last RunWatch last race
16
611-12OR:
5/4

Classy hurdler who was last seen out competing in a Grade 1 event at Punchestown in May; mostly consistent over the smaller obstacles and if translating his natural talent then he holds every chance.

Last RunWatch last race
17
611-12OR: 141
7/1

Another very useful hurdler who did not look too out of polace over fences including when finishing 2nd in a valuable contest at Cheltenham when last seen; given his experience then he may prove too strong for most of these rivals.

Last RunWatch last race

711-12OR:
14/1

Only once finished out of the frame on four outings over hurdles and looks likely to be suited to any more rain at the track; worth noting on chase debut for powerful stable and definitely worth a look in the market.

Betting

Forecast

Tornado Flyer (5/4), Dommage Pour Toi (7/2), Tower Bridge (7/1), Take Revenge (8/1), At The Acorn (11/1), Getareason (12/1), Voix Des Tiep (14/1), Cracking Smart (14/1), Discordantly (18/1), Choungaya (20/1), Cle En Main (20/1), Red Jack (25/1), Ten Ten (50/1), Chavi Artist (50/1), Baily Gorse (50/1), Batcio (66/1), Halsafari (66/1), Castle Oliver (66/1), Brex Drago (66/1), Best Behavior (80/1), Captain Cruiser (100/1)

Verdict

TOWER BRIDGE was a slow improver over fences last season but seemed to be getting the hang of things when finishing second at Cheltenham on his final start. If putting that experience to good use he may prove hard to peg back in the closing stages. The application of first-time blinkers is expected to help Cracking Smart who needed plenty of encouragement to get round on his chase debut at Limerick last time out. Should they do the trick then he should be capable of running a big race. Voix Des Tiep was a very consistent type over hurdles and if replicating that form over fences then he can run well.
