9/4

Didn't take long to get back in the winning groove following a 572-day absence when landing a Galway handicap hurdle over 2m2f last month off a 7lb lower mark. Life more difficult off his revised rating but another bold bid expected.

Eight-race maiden but goes well over this trip. Yard among the winners at Navan on Sunday and entitled to make the shortlist in this company.

Mixed bag of results in a number of starts over hurdles since August. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of progression needed to land a blow here.

Had not beaten many home in three dismal maiden hurdle efforts before more of the same in a couple of handicap starts at Tipperary in May and Listowel in September. Hasn't looked a winner in waiting.

Five-race maiden has shown little or no signs of ability in her career starts so far to be considered in this company.

Will have disappointed connections in a series off desolate efforts on the level and over hurdles since December. Beaten 86L in cheekpieces - now removed - when last seen in March and is hard to fancy on return.

Yet to hit the frame in six starts over hurdles when never a factor on any occasion. Recent form unlikely to be good enough in this contest.

Mixed messages in a number of starts over hurdles in maiden and handicap company since the spring. Needs to improve significantly if playing a role in the finish here.

Sole success came in September 2016 and his form has deteriorated alarmingly since. Needs to take a big step forward to get competitive at this level.

Disappointing mare, well held on all starts in bumpers and in five starts over hurdles so far. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed.

Five-race maiden, struggling overall and well held in a number of starts since August. First-time blinkers unlikely to spark much needed improvement.

Not seen on the track since May 2018. Lightly raced maiden who has never reached a place and it would be an achievement if he finishes with more in front than behind.

Six-race maiden tailed off on both starts over hurdles this year at Navan in January and when last seen on track in a Wexford 2m handicap in April. Plenty of questions to answer on return to action.

Has shown nothing to suggest she is capable of winning a race of this nature on five rules starts to date. Hard to make a case for after being comprehensively beaten on all occasions.

Eight-race maiden, ran with credit when fourth of 14 beaten over 19L in a Wexford 3m handicap hurdle last month. Still looking no nearer to breakthrough success.

10-race maiden is struggling to make any impact over hurdles, including off lowly marks in handicaps, and tough to see where the improvement is coming from

Betting

Forecast

Georgieshore (9/4), Bythesametoken (5/1), Mickey Shea (15/2), Sporty Yankee (8/1), Grey Habit (10/1), Myladyrose (12/1), Sabichi (12/1), The Chapel Field (12/1), Pino Boy (14/1), Golden Symphony (14/1), Gotta Getaway (16/1), Lovely Carrig (16/1), Forever Charmer (16/1), Elusive Exclusive (16/1), Daisy's Hollow (20/1), Knock Na Rea (25/1), Imperial Reprise (25/1), I Will Walk (33/1), Gragara Tara (33/1)

Verdict

The 7lb rise for the 11-year-old Georgieshore may be enough to let in the Ross O'Sullivan-trained BYTHESAMETOKEN in first-time cheekpieces. The five-year-old can step up on his fourth of 16 over C&D last month to get off the mark for connections at the ninth time of asking. The J J Walsh-trained Knock Na Rea and Mickey Shea in first-time cheekpieces can compete for remaining prize money while Sporty Yankee for the trainer/jockey combination of Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell should not be underestimated.
