11/8

Carried on where he left off before lockdown when landing the spoils in a Roscommon hurdle earlier this month. In a good position to land the four-timer.

8/1

Sea The Stars gelding didn't achieve as much as might have been hoped on Flat but his win in that sphere was over 1m5f at Leopardstown last year. Won on hurdling debut in good style at Gowran Park earlier this month.

Below-par 63-rated handicapper on the Flat for trainer Pat Phelan but ran well to finish second of 13 beaten ½L at Kilbeggan earlier this month. More to come.

11/4

On a run of four consecutive runner-up positions in bumper and hurdling company before getting off the mark at the fifth attempt in a Wexford maiden hurdle over a similar trip when last seen in March.

12/1

Solid and consistent sort off the mark at the 12th time of asking over hurdles following a number of starts with the mare hitting the frame on many occasions. Respected.

4/1

Bought for £150,000 as a four-year-old. Showed promise on hurdles debut at Fairyhouse in November before landing the spoils in a Roscommon 2m maiden last month. Can give a good account.

Betting

Forecast

The Very Man (11/8), Getaway Gorgeous (11/4), Telmesomethinggirl (4/1), With A Start (8/1), My Midnight (12/1), Grange Walk (66/1)

Verdict
Competitive contest which can go the way of the the Willie Mullins-trained GETAWAY GORGEOUS. The mare was proving expensive to follow before getting off the mark at the fifth attempt at Wexford in March. The daughter of Getaway can get the better of The Very Man in the colours of the Gigginstown House Stud and the Noel Meade-trained With A Start won won on sole start at Gowran Park recently.
  1. Getaway Gorgeous
  2. The Very Man
  3. With A Start
