511-10OR: D
7/2

Won his maiden on hurdling debut in facile fashion at Gowran Park, and improved further when landing the Grade 3 'For Auction' Novice Hurdle at Navan over a similar trip last time. Needs stablemate to falter.

Four victories over a variety of trips in August/September/October marked him out as a rising star. Winner in Listed company last month, but the Kalanisi gelding has plenty on his plate here.

Won on hurdling debut last month, taking closer order in the straight, driven to challenge on the run-in before keeping on well under pressure to win by ½L at Naas over a similar trip. May be capable of better still.

8/11

Champion Bumper winner at Cheltenham in March, Muhtathir gelding made all on hurdling debut in a Down Royal maiden over 2m½f to win in facile fashion by over 6L. Looks to hold all the aces.

Winner of a Listed contest at the Galway festival before a defeat in a similar contest in October, the gelding looked overwhelmed in Grade 3 'For Auction' hurdle at Navan last month. Yard have won this contest in seven of the last 11 years.

Dual bumper winner who was less than 5L second to the classy Envoi Allen in Listed company in-between. Impressive winner on hurdling debut of a Cork 2m, 15-runner maiden last month, landing the spoils by over 9L. Place claims.

Needs to step up from a couple of novice hurdle wins since August. Looks up against it but should be noted that leading yard have won this contest on seven occasions since 2008 including four of the last five renewals.

Made winning hurdles debut at Gowran Park before finishing second of seven, ¾L behind Quel Destin in a Cheltenham 2m½f contest in October. Could well still have more to give but likely to be competing for place money.

Betting

Forecast

Envoi Allen (8/11), Abacadabras (7/2), Midnight Run (6/1), Foveros (14/1), Embittered (16/1), Soviet Pimpernel (16/1), Darver Star (20/1), Turnpike Trip (25/1), Fast Buck (33/1)

Verdict

It's difficult to get away from the obvious chances of the Gordon Elliott-trained ENVOI ALLEN. The five-year-old won as he liked on hurdling debut in a Down Royal 2m½f contest on soft ground and can build on that 6½L victory at the expense of stablemate, Abacadabras who did little wrong when landing the Grade 3 'For Auction' novice hurdle at Navan over a similar trip last month. The Willie Mullins-trained Foveros looks a lively outsider representing respected yard who have won this contest on seven occasions since 2008 including four of the last five renewals.
