611-12OR:
12/1

Cost €60,000 as a three-year-old. Gelding by Fracas out of a Accordion mare. Impressive winner of a Roscommon bumper over 2m5f on good ground beating 9 rivals by 9L. Leading player.

611-4OR:
13/2

Four-race maiden over hurdles. Third of 15 beaten over 17L on his latest start over 2m5½f on soft ground at Punchestown last month. Any market support could be significant.

511-4OR:
8/1

Presenting gelding deserves a change in fortunes following a number of close calls in bumpers and a couple of hurdle spins at Clonmel recently. Positives outweigh the negatives in this contest and the Presenting gelding can give a good account.

66/1

Gelding by Bollin Eric out of a Simply Great mare. Closely related to four-time point-to-point winner Carrignagapple successful over the larger obstacles at 3m. Best watched on debut.

511-4OR: BF
1/2

Point-to-point winner last year after which he was bought for £235,000. Has failed to justify favouritism on both starts under rules in a Punchestown bumper before finishing 7L adrift of Diol Ker in a Fairyhouse maiden hurdle over 2m4f last month.

611-4OR:
9/2

Son of Presenting made a more than promising start to finish second at Tipperary in a 20-runner 2m4f maiden back in July before finishing fourth of 12 on return to action at Punchestown over 2m6f last month. Capable of a bold bid.

511-4OR:
40/1

Gelding by Presenting out of a Brian Boru mare. Dam, a winner over hurdles and fences racing between 2m and 2m4f. One to watch on debut unless market vibes have other ideas.

411-3OR: 116
25/1

13-race maiden, without success in seven starts over timber. Out of form in a couple of starts since September including on handicap debut at Navan last month and hard to make a case for.

610-11OR:
66/1

Sent off at a big price on latest start at Thurles last month before running accordingly in the process and unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Monkfish (1/2), Time To Get Up (9/2), Atlantic Shore (13/2), Braeside (8/1), Osmotic (12/1), Amerijano (16/1), Union Gap (25/1), Moyode Gold (25/1), Western Fancy (40/1), Scarlet Leader (50/1), Ballyshannon Rose (66/1), Coalbrook Bridge (66/1)

Verdict

Trainer Willie Mullins appears to have found an ideal opportunity for MONKFISH to get off the mark at the third time of asking for connections following a couple of setbacks as beaten favourite since the Stowaway geldings debut in May. The lightly raced five-year-old can get the better of Osmotic who won a Roscommon bumper in facile fashion when last seen in May. The Gigginstown House Stud-owned six-year-old can emerge as the biggest danger ahead of stablemate Braeside and the Joseph O'Brien-trained Time To Get Up.
  1. Monkfish
