Modest maiden on the Flat. Thrice-raced maiden. Eighth of 15 in juvenile hurdle at Fairyhouse (16f, soft, 100/1). Off 6 months.

Verdict

BLONDES NO MORE was far from disgraced in two competitive handicaps last summer and could find improvement on stable debut for Eoin Griffin. A mark of 89 looks fair for this five-year-old and she can account for Miss Echrad, who may well have a bit more to offer now on decent ground, and Cailean's Angel, who is bred to appreciate the addition of hurdles and would go close on the pick of her bumper form.

Verdict

CAILEAN'S ANGEL has shown enough over hurdles to warrant plenty of respect in a race of this nature, so she gets the nod. Miss Echrad may yet improve, especially now getting her chance away from testing ground, with Blondes No More another to consider.

Lightly-raced maiden. 4/1, very good second of 10 in handicap hurdle at Kilbeggan (16f, soft) 17 days ago. May do better still and very much one to consider.

Verdict

The Granson found a novice event too hot to handle at Kilbeggan last week and could come unstuck here once more, while Force Of Forces has been disappointing on the last three occasions and looks worth opposing. Percy took a backwards step last time for Gordon Elliott but remains with potential, though it could be worth following VISIOMAN. Second to a potentially smart type last time out, he remains unexposed over two miles and it is worth noting that his handler won this event last season.

Verdict

PERCY is worth a chance to get back on the up, especially now the ground has dried out (showed useful form on a sound surface on the Flat). Visioman and Force of Forces are feared most.

Verdict

DRAKAINA was back to winning ways when last seen at Limerick in October and having gone well fresh in the past (won at Wexford last May on her return from a 65-day break), the daughter of Oscar can go in again off a 6lb higher mark in a race which looks there for the taking. A Place Apart has had a recent run on the level here and was second when last tried over hurdles at Downpatrick, so he heads the list of dangers from Clonard Street.

Verdict

COMEHERE HI is on a good mark over hurdles and is worth chancing back in this sphere under a promising 7 lb conditional. Limerick-winner Drakaina is respected on her return, while Hearts Are Trumps could do better now handicapping for top connections.

Verdict

LAST MINUTE MAN has shown a respectable level of form in two starts to date and is more than entitled to improve for a sounder surface on his third outing over timber for Gordon Elliott. Plan Of Attack looked to appreciate the step up in trip when third at Kilbeggan on his latest start and is respected here along with Amschel, who was second on her debut and is likely to improve for the outing.

Verdict

This may well develop in to a match between GIANT SPIRIT and Last Minute Man, the former narrowly preferred on the back of his respectable runners-up effort latest, now in receipt of 8 lb from the latter. Amschel and Lord In Red can also make the frame.

Career best when winning 7-runner handicap hurdle at Limerick (16f, heavy, 3/1) 59 days ago, finding extra. Up in trip.

Verdict

STACKS MOUNTAIN's best effort in four starts came when eighth in the Goffs Land Rover Bumper at the Punchestown Festival last year and looks the type capable of improving after a four-month break on his handicap debut. Big Ben disappointed on his handicap bow at Punchestown last October but is entitled to benefit from a sounder surface, while Turasoir can improve for the application of cheekpieces.

Verdict

BIG BEN disappointed on handicap debut when last seen in October but has plenty of handicapping scope based on his maiden hurdle efforts and earlier Flat form and is worth another chance back from a break. Recent Kilbeggan runner-up Mr Picotee should go well again, while Princess Mahler should remain competitive after a 7 lb rise for Limerick.
