Won 1m2f handicaps at Windsor and Sandown in 2017 for Sylvester Kirk before joining current yard for 130,000 gns. Winner of two of his five starts over hurdles but has a dismal effort at this track last month to put behind him.

Not beaten far in Grade 1 event at Aintree in April having previously been running well in novice company and a win in a maiden over C&D. Strong place claims.

Three-time winner over hurdles has been running with credit in defeat in a number of starts since August. Has hit the frame on both starts over C&D and is worth a check in the market.

Solid efforts since returning to action in October winning on both starts over similar trips. Life expected to be difficult from revised mark but another bold bid can be expected.

One from six over hurdles the gelding will be having his first start over timber since finishing down the field in a Punchestown handicap in April last year. Generally running well over fences, worth a check in the market switching to timber.

Off the mark at the fifth time asking over hurdles when landing a 2m5f contest at the Galway festival before winning again four days later at the venue off a 16lb lower mark. More needed.

Ran only okay in three starts in France before a solid third of 21 beaten 3¾L in the Grade 3 Boodles Juvenile hurdle (Fred Winter) at the Cheltenham festival in March. One for the shortlist on eagerly awaited comeback.

Landed a couple of hurdling contests at Galway in September/October before a number of subsequent disappointments. Never a factor behind Abacadabras in a Grade 3 contest at Navan on latest start and plenty to prove in this contest.

Broke her maiden tag on the Flat at Galway over 1m4f in July and held her form well in a couple of subsequent starts at Leopardstown and Naas. Capable of a big run on return to hurdling.

Daughter of Milan who is holding her form well in a number of starts since August on the Flat, over hurdles and the larger obstacles. Distance winner, likely to give another good account of herself.

Failed to open account in eight hurdles runs since arriving from France. Well held and never nearer at Down Royal over 2m½f last month and needs a few to falter.

Won for the second time over hurdles when landing a Punchestown handicap hurdle off a 6lb lower mark over this trip in May. Well held on return to action when tailed off at Down Royal last month and has plenty to find.

Is on a long losing stretch which goes back to August 2016. Has yet to hit the frame in a number of starts on the Flat and over hurdles since September. Tough ask.

Miserly return of a single win from 23 starts over timber. Well beaten in a couple of runs last month and remains easy to oppose.

Betting

Forecast

Janidil (3/1), Buildmeupbuttercup (7/2), Ciel De Neige (6/1), Lakemilan (8/1), Chosen Mate (8/1), Articulum (10/1), Hearts Are Trumps (14/1), Ilikedwayurthinkin (14/1), Mister Blue Sky (14/1), Pakens Rock (16/1), La Sorelita (20/1), Morga (50/1), Polished Steel (50/1), Campeador (50/1), Tara Dylan (50/1)

Verdict

Owner J P McManus runs five in the race with the Willie Mullins-trained JANIDIL looking the pick of the bunch with jockey Mark Walsh in the plate. The potential improver can add to his two victories at Tipperary in October and at Down Royal earlier this month at the expense of stablemate Buildmeupbuttercup who as been operating on the Flat over the summer. Two more McManus-owned runners Ciel De Neige and Ilikedwayurthinkin should not be underestimated.
  1. Janidil
  2. Buildmeupbuttercup
  3. Ilikedwayurthinkin
