15/2
Useful hurdler. 1 win from 2 runs this season. Didn't need to be at best when winning 22-runner novice hurdle (4/9) at Naas (16f, good to soft) 22 days ago, responding well. Others more persuasive.

Forecasts

My Mate Mozzie (5/4), Impervious (3/1), Three Stripe Life (9/2), Mighty Potter (5/1), Uhtred (15/2), Statuaire (12/1), Arctic Warrior (16/1), Farout (20/1)

Verdict

IMPERVIOUS maintained her unbeaten record in tidy fashion in a Grade 3 at Down Royal last month and looks well worth a crack at this level given how strong she was at the finish that day. My Mate Mozzie was impressive when making all in a Grade 2 at Navan 3 weeks ago and rates a big threat along with Gordon Elliott's pair Three Stripe Life and Mighty Potter.
