612-4OR: 100
16/1

Just the one win from 12 starts over hurdles and the daughter of Milan has been struggling to complete in a number of starts since March. Chance on best form but more needed with a couple of better handicapped sorts lurking.

Has been chasing of late to little effect; capable hurdler on his day and last victory came at this track over slightly further; possibly needs to drop a few more pounds in the handicap to get competitive again.

Excellent and deserved victory last time out at Fairyhouse earlier this month when winning easily over 2m4f; up plenty in the weights but manner of victory suggested there would be more to come.

Pulled up on handicap debut last time out at Listowel following two fair placed efforts in maiden hurdles; much more needed here and still not the best jumper; others preferred.

11-race maiden yet to hit the frame on any occasion showing little aptitude for the game; hard to make any realistic case for him suddenly showing improved form.

Not beaten too far last time out at Wexford over a similar trip on heavy ground; tends to be a bit weak in a finish and may need to drop a few more pounds in the weights.

Showed very little in the way of ability in three maiden hurdles in 2018 but has proved himself to be a useful chaser; hard to assess returning to the smaller obstacles but market may be a good guide.

Still a maiden over hurdles and on the Flat; has shown some ability and looks to have been given a chance by the handicapper but not the most reliable and not one to get heavily involved with.

Handicap debut; well beaten on all his starts to date; hard to recommend on basis of racecourse form and does not look particularly well treated.

711-9OR: 91

Has shown bits and pieces of form in maiden hurdles but has struggled when competing in handicaps; no real reason why he can improve on what he has shown so far.

Promising second on first run over hurdles but hasn't progressed on that including when running in a handicap for the first time at the end of October; hard to assess but probably best left alone on balance of evidence.

Infrequent winner who is much better over fences these days; nothing in his past hurdles form to suggest he can win off his current mark but not easy to totally rule out.

Well down the pack in five career starts over hurdles; needs to step up on previous efforts to get involved in this contest.

Took advantage of lenient handicap mark to score well at Ballinrobe in August; struggled slightly next time out off revised mark; fair chance on best of his form but recent absence a slight concern.

Betting

Forecast

Kayf Thou (7/2), Young Dev (4/1), Lagenod (4/1), Cousin Pascal (8/1), Cloudybackwest (10/1), Magic Sea (12/1), Northern Emperor (12/1), Farranreigh (12/1), Charle's River (14/1), Citizen Al (16/1), My First Symphony (20/1), Drumconnor Girl (20/1), All About Alfie (20/1), Whoyakodding (25/1), Western Rambler (28/1), Frankincense (33/1), Viscount Wilson (50/1)

Verdict

LAGENOD has been given a hefty weights rise for his success at Fairyhouse earlier this month but the manner of that success (won easily) suggested that there could be more to come: Strong market support would augur well for his chances. Young Dev has been chasing of late but he has some useful hurdles form in the locker. Arguably weighted up to his best, he should still be able to give a good account of himself in a race not blessed with well handicapped rivals. If Northern Emperor is fit from a recent short break then he may be capable of putting in a decent effort despite another who looks in the handicapper's grip.
  1. Lagenod
