Verdict

THOMAS O'MALLEY is fitted with a first-time tongue-tie on his NH bow but is expected to give a good account on the back of his 1m2f Flat victory here last month. Ted Walsh representative Minnie Dahill, who was well held in a maiden on the level last month, is worth a market check now debuting in this sphere under Ruby Walsh, while Make It Hurrah, a winner on the Flat at Cork in the spring, is another debuting over obstacles to consider.

Verdict

RICHARD STRAUSS is the obvious selection after a highly promising debut third over hurdles and ought to prove very hard to beat. Stablemate Thomas O'Malley could yet prove to be his biggest danger, leaving Make It Hurrah as the likeliest for the minor placing.

Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. Below form thirteenth of 23 in novice hurdle (25/1) at Cork (16f, good to soft) 7 days ago, not knocked about. Has good chance on pick of form.

Verdict

Field Exhibition failed to see out the trip over 2m3f at Downpatrick last time and may be able to step up on that effort now dropping back slightly in distance. Preference, however, is for DON'T LET GO, who took a forward step when fourth over this trip at Roscommon last time, an effort which marked a career-best, and should be thereabouts with a repeat performance. Misskymdee is no forlorn hope for a place.

Verdict

DON'T LET GO won't need to offer a great deal more for her recent fourth to take this, and can improve past all her rivals for trainer Conor O'Dwyer. Field Exhibition looks her biggest rival on paper though Peggy's Acre may have more to come.

Verdict

BEN RUMSON had a recent spin at Cork on the Flat and makes some appeal on his earlier hurdles second off 2lb lower at Bellewstown. Whenthewindblows ran well in a maiden hurdle when fourth at Galway last time and could build on that performance now moving into a handicap, while recent C&D third Alterno is capable of playing a supporting role too as he runs here off an unchanged rating.

Verdict

WHENTHEWINDBLOWS deserves to get his head in front for the first time here after a run of good efforts and looks to have been found a decent opportunity. Ben Rumson seems ready to take full advantage should the selection fail to run to form, though Alterno will also expect to have a say.

Course winner here in May. 7/1, ninth of 13 in handicap at Galway (13.8f, soft) 8 days ago, left poorly placed. Switches from Flat to hurdles. Creditable on last hurdle run and place chances.

Verdict

DENHAM SOUND caught the eye at Galway last time out when finishing with a flourish and a return to hurdles and better ground under Paul Townend could see the four-year-old resume her progress. A mark of 116 still looks very fair, and she can account for former C&D winner Whats The Plot, who never featured at Galway last time on a poor surface. Walkabout and From Eden are other names to take seriously.

Verdict

THE IRREGULAR is a tentative selection with the application of cheekpieces needing to bring about the improvement to see him home in front. Denham Sound is the obvious danger may have to settle for second, leaving the rest, headed by Whats The Plot, to battle it out for third.

Verdict

FABULOUS SAGA has finished second the last twice in bumper company but he has bumped into a couple of potentially nice types and should be up to winning a race of this nature on his hurdles bow. A point-to-point winner over three miles, this step up in distance should suit the five-year-old and he can account for Masterson, who was better known for his Flat exploits when trained by Mick Channon in the UK. Black Allstar is an interesting recruit to this sphere but could be more one for handicaps further down the line.

Verdict

FABULOUS SAGA looks sure to be suited by this step up in trip for his hurdling bow and granted a clear round, he is difficult to oppose for trainer Willie Mullins. Sea Bank could surprise a few of them and run into second place, though Masterson and Mother's Best could also have a say.
