13:35 Navan Sat 7 December 2019
Jumping certainly comes into question following his first couple of starts over fences with the Beneficial gelding unseating his rider on both starts last month.
Fairly useful hurdler, but not bred for this game, and well beaten on chase debut at Galway before three dismal efforts over a variety of trips since October. Well below-par form set to continue.
Useful 143-rated handicap hurdler winner of two of his 10 starts over timber. Possibly best watched on chasing introduction.
Grade Two winning novice hurdler was one of several rivals to come to grief at the first at Naas before a pleasing run at Punchestown over 2m4f finishing 20L adrift of Faugheen last month.
Disappointing efforts over hurdles since October leaving the Martaline gelding without a win in six starts over timber. Market likely to reveal expectations on chasing debut.
Showed glimpses of ability over hurdles but failed to win a single race in four starts. Not disgraced on chasing debut behind Samcro early last month and better expected in this company.
78-rated handicapper on the Flat over the summer. The Sakhee gelding appeared one pace finishing fourth of 14 in an encouraging debut over fences at Navan last month. Likely to improve and worthy of consideration.
Gelding by Kapgarde out of a Turgeon mare. Chucked in at the deep end somewhat on debut in a Navan maiden hurdle over 2m4f won by Andy Dufresne before a 62L reversal in a Gowran Park beginners chase over 2m4f last month.
134-rated handicap hurdler appeared a little slow and laboured at some of his fences on chasing debut in a Cork 2m4f beginners contest on yielding ground before a similar effort behind Fakir D'oudairies at Navan last month.
Useful 136-rated handicap hurdler the Gold Well gelding finished eighth of 14 beaten over 30L on chasing debut at Fairyhouse last month. No surprise to witness improvement.
2m maiden hurdle win here in 2017 remains his lone success although he has been relatively lightly raced since. Will need to improve on hesitant chasing debut at Punchestown over 2m4f last month on soft ground.
Nothing wrong on debut finishing seventh of 17 at the Galway festival in July before a career best effort to finish fifth of 18 at Naas last month on return to action. Any market support could be significant.
Five-race maiden over hurdles the son of Oscar finished a one pace sixth of 10 beaten 36L on chasing introduction at Gowran Park on heavy ground last month. Will need to improve to figure.
Modest 118-rated handicapper, winner of two of his 13 starts over hurdles. Ran on well under pressure to run From Eden to ½L in a Fairyhouse 2m5f contest last month. Will look to progress here.
Kilbeggan maiden hurdle scorer bred to make a better chaser and plenty of promise about his second to exceptional Samcro at Down Royal before only getting as far as the first at Punchestown last month. Another bold bid expected.
132-rated hurdler will have pleased connections on debut over the larger obstacles when finishing third of 18 beaten 1¼L behind Tornoado Flyer in a Naas 2m3f beginners contest last month. Looks to be the best of these.
Was successful twice over hurdles. She made her chase debut at Carlisle last month where she was third of five runners. Will need to take a big step forward to be in the mix.
121-rated hurdler, ran well in defeat in a Grade 3 contest at Limerick in March. Looks an interesting recruit over the larger obstacles.
