511-12OR:
80/1

Winning and experienced point-to-pointer; well beaten on only racecourse appearance at Downpatrick in July when beaten by 91 lengths; no forlorn hope but has plenty to prove.

Career best when finishing second of 16, collared in the shadows of the post here in November but has a couple of dismal efforts either side of that run; not ruled out in this company.

Pulled up on only point-to-point start earlier this month and it would be a surprise to see him being good enough on debut under rules.

511-12OR:

Little to get excited about on breeding and never a factor on only racecourse appearance at Galway in October; hard to see him being capable of the necessary improvement to land this.

Cost 78,000 euros as a three-year-old; brother to high-class jump winner Weapons Amnesty; certainly one to consider and market support would be a positive for leading stable.

Well beaten in a bumper at Limerick in March and on hurdling debut earlier this month; open to improvement but still looks an unlikely winner.

Modest 20-race maiden on the Flat and he would be a shock winner on hurdles debut.

411-9OR:

No real promise in a couple of bumpers before being sent hurdling at Cork earlier this month when pulled up after showing up well for a long way; needs to settle better but not without a chance.

Ten-race maiden on the Flat in France; needs to improve for the switch of codes to make a winning hurdle debut but respected given connections and market should be a good indication of his chances.

Well-bred and fairly expensive purchase as a youngster; two fair efforts to date over hurdles at Tipperary and Wexford; can come on for those experiences but may find a few too good.

Very little to be positive about following disappointing debut at Roscommon in September and equally disappointing run recently at Naas; others preferred.

100/1

Won a point-to-point in February but was pretty average on rules debut at this track last week; open to some improvement but will need to if wanting to be a leading contender here.

611-5OR:
100/1

Hinted at ability in a Wexford bumper in April but has been well down the field in three subsequent maiden hurdles events since including when pulled up last time out at Fairyhouse; easy to oppose.

611-5OR:
80/1

Pulled up in a point-to-point in January and well beaten on first try under rules in a maiden hurdle at Clonmel in late October; never a danger on latest start at Naas this month and similar run can be expected.

411-2OR: BF

Has shown a little bit of promise in two bumper events including when placed last time out at Tramore; more needed to get serious on hurdles debut but respected nevertheless from top yard.

First foal; hard to assess from limited information on breeding; market will be the best guide.

Reasonably bred filly who comes from a family of stayers; given that she may be the type to do better in time but worth a market check.

Forecast

Fan De Blues (8/13), Exceeded Brief (2/1), Ennemi Public (5/1), Mud Runner (8/1), Hopefully (16/1), Mr Manhattan (33/1), Moonshine Sally (33/1), Creggs Star (33/1), Mister Mogul (33/1), Charlie Siringo (50/1), Seskin Bonnie (66/1), Robin Des Ruby (66/1), Red Lemonade (80/1), Bintheredonethat (80/1), Sicario Jack (100/1), Four Courts (100/1), Dont Say A Thing (100/1), Stadius (100/1), My Newbrook Rose (100/1), Northern Love (100/1), Mister Thriller (100/1)

Verdict

ENNEMI PUBLIC looks to have the best racecourse form on show and if improving on his recent third place at Clonmel in October then he should be in the firing line in the closing stages. The debutante Mud Runner is an interesting contender given his breeding and will certainly be one to note in the market for leading stable while Fan De Blues despite bing a maiden on the Flat in France has some fair form and could be capable of translating that to hurdles. Overall a difficult race to choose the winner with a 25/1 shot landing this last term.
