611-12OR:
66/1

Had some fair form for Sir Mark Prescott on the Flat but struggled when sent to Ireland late last year; a dour stayer on the Flat, he might find this on the sharp side but could go well in this company.

Has plenty of bumper experience; finished third of 15 at Gowran Park (2m) on his hurdles debut in November before unseating his rider last month at Down Royal; fair chance if jumping improves.

66/1

Newcomer by top sire Martaline cost €70,000 as a three-year-old and is a brother to 2m-2m4f hurdle winner Papagana and half-brother to two more winners in France. Likable pedigree so one to keep a close eye on here.

711-12OR: BFD
1/3

Had some very useful bumper form a few year ago and has made progress over hurdles despite poor jumping; should have won last time but fell at the last at Navan; becoming expensive to follow but looks likely winner if jumping soundly.

611-12OR:
50/1

Placed on all three of his point-to-point starts back in 2018; difficult to currently assess and best place for guidance will be the betting ring.

€45,000 three-year-old Anzillero gelding is a half-brother to several winners, including top-class hurdler/high-class chaser Grands Crus. In good hands starting out, watch betting.

Low-grade Flat handicapper who has been detached on both starts over hurdles since November. Not one to place a great deal of faith in.

Last RunWatch last race

611-12OR:
4/1

High-class form to his name in a couple bumpers finishing just behind the likes of Envoi Allen and Abacadabras; reasonable effort on hurdles debut at Limerick recently and one to consider.

Tailed off on both starts in bumpers and similar tail on hurdles debut at Fairyhouse earlier this month; hard to see him being competitive here.

511-10OR:

Dual winner for Ger Lyons over a mile on the Flat and looks an interesting recruit to hurdling; last effort on the level was disappointing but should be ready here and has run well fresh in the past.

511-10OR:

Nicely-bred gelding who dam was a half-sister to very useful hurdler/chaser Tully East; stable going well at present and one to keep an eye on in the market.

Well held in a Fairyhouse bumper before a dismal effort on hurdling debut at Leopardstown last month; difficult to get excited about.

511-10OR:

Useful staying handicapper on the Flat when with John Ryan; has changed stable a few times since then and has not been at his best for a long while; hurdling may revitalise him and one to keep an eye on in the market.

Much better performance last time out following on from two poor efforts at Cork and Wexford; penny may have finally dropped and has reasonable chance of a place at the very least.

Looked a good prospect when winning on bumper debut at Galway in October; given a gentle introduction to hurdling last month at Leopardstown and should be better for that run; reasonable chance.

511-10OR:

Flat-bred gelding who cost 20,000 euros as a yearling; pulled up on only point-to-point outing in November; difficult to assess.

33/1

85-rated dual Flat winner who shown moderate aptitude for hurdling; did not enjoy step up in trip last time at Naas; should be better suited here and one to consider.

511-10OR:

Off the mark at the second time of asking for connections when landing a Roscommon bumper on heavy ground in September; mixed bag so far over hurdles but entitled to improve and difficult to write off totally.

511-3OR:

No great shakes on the Flat but made a reasonable hurdling debut at Thurles in October; should have learned from that outing and should give another good account of herself.

511-3OR:

Bred to stay much further than this and her two dire efforts over hurdles reflect this fact; not one to get excited about.

Nicely bred mare related to some useful National Hunt performers; tough ask on debut but market may provide clues of the stable's confidence.

Reasonably bred gelding though stable not renowned for getting them ready first time up; market best guide should he get a run: Reserve 1

Betting

Forecast

Blackbow (1/3), Port Stanley (4/1), Santa Rossa (11/2), Le Musigny (12/1), Nero Rock (16/1), Powerful Ted (25/1), Wavelength (28/1), The Broghie Man (33/1), Arakan Quest (33/1), Bobby Boy (40/1), Hardy Man (50/1), Loudest Whisper (50/1), Coolnacritta (50/1), Alabaster (66/1), Ballyadam Destiny (66/1), Midnight Wilde (66/1), Roses Queen (66/1), Cleared To Go (66/1), Stowaway To Heaven (66/1), Sole Trader (66/1), Funky Dady (100/1), Rebel Gold (100/1), Get Crackin (100/1), Liam Eile (100/1), Seskin Bonnie (100/1)

Verdict

Much here depends on the jumping of BLACKBOW. He looked all over the winner when long odds-on on his latest start but came a cropper at the last flight. Punters will be wary of taking such a short price but he could still be too strong in this weak looking contest. Many eyes will be on the debut of classy bumper winner Santa Rossa. She showed a wonderful consistency in all her contests and if she hurdles well she should give the selection most to do. Best of the rest could be Port Stanley who made a pleasing hurdles debut recently at Limerick and can improve.
