911-10OR: 152D
12/1

Smart chaser who rarely finishes outside the money when he finishes at race but needs to bounce back from surprisingly poor performance last time out at Sandown; recent wind surgery may have helped; interesting contender.

16/1

Won this contest last year but struggled in most of his subsequent performances; better effort last time out over course and distance and hard to easily dismiss at this track.

711-7OR: 149D
10/1

Winner of one of his 10 starts over fences though the Stowaway gelding has hit the frame on no less than six occasions; worryingly he has been tailed off on his last two starts; first time blinkers may help.

5/1

Just has the one novice chase win to his name but has run well in defeat on a number of occasions including at the Cheltenham Festival; needs to bounce back from a mid-race fall last time out but is one to consider.

Only a few pounds higher than when winning well enough at Limerick over a similar trip in March; slightly disappointing last time out at same venue but excellent chance on the best of his form.

Impressive winner over course and distance in November; comes here with every chance despite being up plenty in the weights; expected ground should suit but would not want any more rain; leading chance.

Never really threatened when runner-up to Avenir D'Une Vie last time out over course and distance.; meets that rival on better terms here but still looks unlikely to be able to reverse placings.

9/2

Finished third in this contest last season and has obviously had training problems as this will be only his second start since then; definite chance on best of his form and can go well fresh; interesting.

8/1

Unlucky not to have got his head in front so far over fences and only beaten a neck when third at Naas on his penultimate start; fell at the final flight last time out (could have won); looks well handicapped; definite claims.

9/1

Finished fourth in this contest last season; rarely seems to get truly competitive these days but can't be easily dismissed at this track especially for place purposes given his good completion record.

Ran as well as could be expected last time out at Leopardstown and would have been closer if not for a mistake at the last; fairly consistent and capable of grabbing a place at the very least.

Course winner who would have a better chance over a further trip and not having to race from out of the handicap.

Became a frustrating sort for David Pipe often flattering to deceive before departing for current yard; has been disappointing on his last two starts and could struggle again off these terms.

10/1

Unlucky last time and is generally a consistent sort; unlikely to figure given how far he has to race out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Blazer (9/2), Articulum (5/1), R'evelyn Pleasure (6/1), Arvico Bleu (8/1), Kildorrery (9/1), Charlie Stout (10/1), Us And Them (10/1), Avenir D'Une Vie (12/1), Ornua (12/1), Powersbomb (14/1), Duca De Thaix (16/1), Doctor Phoenix (16/1), Ice Cold Soul (20/1), Rock The World (25/1), Vaniteux (25/1), Goulane Chosen (28/1)

Verdict

Plenty with chances in a fascinating contest. A tentative nod goes to ARVICO BLEU who looked all over the winner approaching the final flight at Thurles when last seeing a racecourse in February, If fit for this contest he holds every chance. Another who has been off the track for a while is Blazer. The gelding finished third in this contest last season and if improving since then he could run a big race. Avenir D'Une Vie will have his supporters based on his recent win over course and distance though he needs to defy a big rise in the weights to get competitive.
  1. Arvico Bleu
