511-12OR:
66/1

Reasonably consistent on the Flat though last few runs were below par; interesting recruit to jumping and entitled to run well; market may be best guide.

511-12OR:
12/1

Very consistent maiden hurdler but starting to become expensive to follow; likely to run his race once again but may be vulnerable to less exposed types.

511-12OR: 126
6/5

No wins from seven starts but certainly has ability exemplified by finishing third in a novice hurdle race at Punchestown recently; a reproduction of that form in this weaker contest should see him go very close.

511-12OR:
66/1

Won a maiden for Aiden O'Brien back in 2017 and returns for the first time here; very difficult to assess after such a long absence and one his hurdling debut suggesting a look in the market is the recommendation.

411-9OR: 125BF
6/4

Another dropping back from handicaps and there was plenty to like about the gelding's performance last time out at Punchestown; if he can reproduce that form he may take all the beating.

411-9OR:
33/1

Fairly consistent Flat performer who was not disgraced on hurdles debut at Navan last March; will certainly win races this season but may have to wait a while before opening his account.

511-4OR:
8/1

Didn't show a great deal in a novice hurdle and a similar story in two subsequent bumpers; ran well for a long way on reappearance run at Clonmel in October; entitled to improve and respected from top yard.

Last RunWatch last race

100/1

Cheaply bought gelding who showed very little on only racecourse appearance in a hurdle race at Galway in October; obviously open to improvement but it would be a surprise if good enough here.

511-4OR:
25/1

A return to hurdling last time out at Cork after a spell chasing failed to reignited this gelding; hard to see where the improvement will come from to be a serious contender.

411-4OR:

Nicely bred son of Dylan Thomas, didn't show enough in two bumpers in October to merit selection now.

411-4OR:

Cost 7,000 euros as a foal; related to some fair National Hunt performers; looks the type who will be better in time and only strong market support would suggest he is capable of landing this.

410-11OR:

Unspectacular breeding evidenced when this filly finished last on her only racecourse appearance at Clonmel earlier this month; another who will do better with age.

510-11OR:
100/1

Daughter of Thousand Words out of a Norwich mare. Appears to have a mountain to climb coming here for her hurdling debut based on what she has shown in three career bumper starts so far.

511-4OR:

Reserve 1 Signs of ability in bumpers but needs to bounce back from a fall last time out at Fairyhouse.

Betting

Forecast

Poseidon (6/5), Future Proof (6/4), Accidental Rebel (8/1), Even Flight (10/1), Mooltazem (12/1), Paranoid (25/1), Madrid (33/1), Happy Company (66/1), Squire's Tale (66/1), Youmakeityoutakeit (66/1), Presenting Dylan (100/1), Tuscansunset (100/1), Last Return (100/1), Joshsbar (100/1), Good Ol Days (100/1), Fairoffthecross (100/1), Le Figaro Faoudel (100/1)

Verdict

FUTURE PROOF steps back in class in order to get a deserved win under his belt and holds every chance in this contest if reproducing his form in a recent handicap hurdle at Punchestown which came on the back of some excellent performances on the Flat. Another dropping in class is Poseidon who put up a fine performance, also at Punchestown, in a novice hurdle: He may give the selection most to do. Accidental Rebel showed he possesses some talent when running well for a long way at Clonmel in October. Expect him to be fitter here and he is respected.
