Recently seen beaten on a couple of occasions over hurdles but won a Grade B contest over fences in August. Winner of this contest over C&D 12 months ago when sent off at odds of 8/13 and likely to give another good account.

7/4

Progressive over the larger obstacles last term that saw a 13L win the Grade 1 Arkle at the Cheltenham festival in March. Below-par effort when last seen at Punchestown in May but no surprise to see a big run on return to action.

8/1

Course winner that has also won over this trip. Grade 1 novice chaser, ran with credit when finishing second of 12 beaten 6½L in a Grade A Punchestown contest over the larger obstacles when last seen in May. Could be up against it in this company.

5/4

Came to prominence when landing the Listed Close Brothers Novices' handicap at the Cheltenham festival in March. Ran with credit in a Grade 1 contest at Punchestown finishing third of eight the following month. May be capable of better still.

Betting

Forecast

A Plus Tard (5/4), Duc Des Genievres (7/4), Ballyoisin (9/2), Hardline (8/1), Doctor Phoenix (40/1)

Verdict

The Enda Bolger-trained BALLYOISIN has won for the last three years around this time of year and can emulate the likes of Moscow Flyer, Big Zeb and Flemenstar in winning back-to-back Fortria's. The eight-year-old is likely to try and make all as he fights off the attentions of Grade 1 Arkle winner, Duc Des Genievres for the Willie Mullins yard and Cheltenham festival winner, the Henry De Bromhead-trained, A Plus Tard who runs for the first time over this trip for connections.
