1011-12OR: 121D
11/4

Four-race maiden over the larger obstacles with the Milan gelding hitting the frame on more than one occasion. Wouldn't have to improve too much to play a major role in the finish.

511-12OR: D
7/1

Had been improving over hurdles all summer culminating in a decent win in a maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan in August. Likely to improve on promising chasing debut at Punchestown over a similar trip in October.

511-12OR:
100/1

Six-race maiden, very modest form over hurdles. Tailed off finishing last of 13 making no impression on chasing introduction at Navan last, sent off at odds of 100/1.

511-12OR:
20/1

Below-par 96-rated handicap hurdler who finished a moderate seventh of 15 on debut over the larger obstacles at Thurles late last month.

711-12OR:
33/1

Has not reproduced the form of his 1¾L defeat at Naas in January in five dismal efforts since including on return to action in a Cork 2m4f handicap hurdle last month. Looks up against it on chasing bow.

Last RunWatch last race

511-12OR:
7/1

Not disgraced but generally well held in a couple of point-to-point starts last year and a number of hurdling defeats since February. Last seen in May and will likely need the experience on first start over fences.

611-12OR:
40/1

Not the most consistent but put in one of his more pleasing performances at Gowran Park in October before disappointing again in a Down Royal 3m handicap hurdle last month. Market likely to reveal expectations on chasing debut.

711-12OR: 104
50/1

100-rated handicap hurdler who will have disappointed connections on first start over the larger obstacles producing a dreadful performance at Cork over 2m5f last month. Others hold sturdier claims.

Last RunWatch last race

511-12OR:
66/1

Limited promise since return from 635 days off over hurdles in the spring. Down the field on a dismal return to action at Galway in October and likely to be up against it on chasing introduction here.

511-12OR:
6/1

Tough and genuine sort who deserves a change of luck. Second of 13 behind Stones And Roses on chasing debut in a Cork beginners contest last month. Another bold show expected.

511-12OR: C
7/2

Was beginning to get to grips with hurdling in the spring, culminating in a win over 2m4f in a Clonmel maiden in May. Weakened from three out on chasing debut behind Stones And Roses and Randalls Ur Poet at Cork last month.

811-5OR: D
20/1

109-rated handicap hurdler, the daughter of Stowaway has been running well in defeat in a number of starts over the summer. Well worth a market check as the mare makes her chasing debut.

611-5OR:
100/1

11-race maiden over hurdles the 83-rated handicapper will need to improve on overall form to play a significant role on her debut over the larger obstacles in this company.

511-5OR: D
10/1

Wexford novice hurdle winner in March, the daughter of Flemensfirth made a pleasing start to her chasing career finishing sixth of 16 in a Thurles beginners contest over 2m2f last month. Any market support could be significant.

611-5OR: BFC
16/1

Had shown nothing until landing a big gamble at Thurles before backing that effort up in a Clonmel 2m3½f handicap at the end of October. Beaten since but could be of some interest on chasing introduction.

Betting

Forecast

Bitsandpieces (11/4), Touch Of Oscar (7/2), Randalls Ur Poet (6/1), Brog Ahaon (7/1), Montagne D'Argent (7/1), Niccolai (10/1), Robin Gold (16/1), Bridge Native (20/1), Jack Holiday (20/1), Love And Wishes (33/1), Mr Jacaranda (40/1), Oskar High (50/1), Pull The Other One (66/1), Myladyrose (100/1), Empire Escape (100/1)

Verdict

No one would begrudge the solid and gutsy gelding RANDALLS UR POET a victory to get him off the mark at the 22nd time of asking for connections on just his second start over fences. The five-year-old finished a gallant second of 13 behind Stones And Roses on chasing debut at Cork last month and can improve here at the expense of the Joseph O'Brien-trained Touch Of Oscar and Bitsandpieces who has hit the frame on both of his last couple of starts over fences in March/April.
  1. Randalls Ur Poet
  2. Touch Of Oscar
  3. Bitsandpieces
