20/1

Two from 12 over hurdles. Ran below-par at Cork in November following a win at Gowran Park 12 months ago. Hard to place any faith in.

Course winner that has won over this trip. Little signs of encouragement in a number of starts over hurdles since November. Now racing 10lb lower than last winning mark is a concern.

Little in the way positives in four starts since arriving from France. Not seen since April and hard to fancy on return to action in this contest.

Infrequent visits to the track will not be helping the gelding as he bids to progress in the game. Not seen since finishing down the field in a Tipperary maiden hurdle in May 2018 and hard to make a case for on return to action.

Career best effort finishing third of 12 beaten 3L in a Fairyhouse handicap hurdle over 2m on heavy ground last month. One to consider in this company.

Lightly raced gelding in the last 12 months. Racing 7lb lower than last winning mark and hard to see where improvement is coming from.

Well down the field in a number of dismal efforts over hurdles since his debut in a Punchestown maiden in November. Not completely ruled out on handicap debut.

Eight-race maiden over hurdles posted a career best effort when finishing fourth of 10 beaten 3¾L at Tramore last month. Failed to back that run up on New Years Day but is better than that run suggests.

Sent off at big prices (100/1 latest) in a number of starts over hurdles since September before running accordingly on each occasion and unlikely to make a significant impact in this contest.

Three-race maiden over hurdles. Last of nine in a Fairyhouse novice hurdle over 2m4f when last seen in November. Profile suggests that he is worth taking on again.

Has failed to back up a career best effort at Tipperary in July in a couple of dire performances at Killarney in July and when last seen in a Thurles handicap hurdle in November.

Not the greatest record of one from 27 over hurdles but the daughter of Oscar has shown increased potential in a couple of efforts at in December. Merits plenty of respect looking at the opposition.

Modest handicapper was pulled up latest on return after 11 months off in a Thurles mares' chase in October. Well beaten on latest start in December and hard to see where improvement is coming from at her age.

No joy from five starts in the last 12 months. Well beaten on latest start at Tramore last month and remains easy to oppose here.

Betting

Forecast

Fighting Fit (5/2), Crack On Corrie (5/1), Dos Gardenias (5/1), Western Rambler (8/1), Dressednblack (12/1), Peace N' Milan (12/1), Flash (12/1), Difficult Decision (16/1), My Newbrook Rose (16/1), Sabichi (16/1), Charlotte Wells (16/1), Spare Brakes (20/1), Chasing Charlie (20/1), Just Call Me (22/1), Stolen Moment (25/1), Kilkarney Mai (50/1), Brazen Bay (50/1)

Verdict

Sent off at monster prices for a couple of maiden hurdle starts in November the J P McManus-owned FIGHTING FIT finished third of 12 beaten 3L on handicap debut at Fairyhouse last month. The five-year-old looks to be on an attractive mark for that defeat in this company and can see off the attentions of Eoin Doyle's Western Rambler who posted a career best effort when finishing fourth of 10 beaten 3¾L at Tramore last month and Crack On Corrie for trainer Willie Austin. In a weak looking contest, Flash could go well at a price.
