Verdict

IRISH LASS has been off the track since justifying odds-on favouritism in a bumper at Tramore last summer but her stable are expected to have her well prepared for her first assignment over hurdles and she rates a confident choice on her return. Agusta Gold should be all the wiser for the experience gained when fourth over 2m6f at Killarney last time and is considered the main danger ahead of the 98-rated Maple Lawn.

Verdict

IRISH LASS looked a fine prospect when justifying strong support on bumper debut at Tramore back in August, and given she is highly likely to make her mark over hurdles, all looks set fair for another big run. Maple Lawn and Agusta Gold can emerge as the chief threats.

Verdict

ALTERNO has been absent since winning by one length over C&D 246 days ago but if the market vibes are positive ahead of his return to action it would come as no surprise to see him take a 6lb rise in his stride. Ashjan drops back in trip after finishing third over 2m5f at Tramore and has place possibilities, while Shakeytry, who was a neck second over 2m earlier on the same Tramore card last time, could also take a hand now stepped up in distance.

Verdict

SHOW AND GO has a good record here and the booking of Davy Russell suggests he's expected to go well back over hurdles. Whatsinthecorner followed last month's chase win with a decent fourth over timber at Kilbeggan and can figure again, while Ashjan is another former course winner who arrives in good nick.

50/1, twelfth of 13 in handicap hurdle at Kilbeggan (16f, good) 11 days ago, never travelling well. Significantly back up in trip. Difficult ask.

Verdict

Ballinrobe second GETAWAY ROSE has been knocking hard on the door over similar distances of late and is expected to remain competitive in the face of a 1lb rise. The principal threat may be Coole Craft, who rattled the crossbar over 2m5f at Tramore last time out, though a big run from recent Wexford third Lady Of The Sea, who turned in an improved effort over the extended 2m4f, is also anticipated.

Verdict

GETAWAY ROSE is going the right way at present and can get off the mark here. Coole Craft needs considering on the back of a good second at Tramore a couple of weeks ago, while Shantou Sisu improved when fifth on handicap debut last time and could build on that given his lightly raced profile.

Verdict

BIG BAD BRIAN was disappointing on his handicap debut when pulled up at Fairyhouse in December but that effort came on heavy ground and a return to a sounder surface on his chase debut can make a difference to his form. Caliption is one to respect on his first start for Gordon Elliott and he has to be going close here along with the consistent An'ball.

Verdict

Not a strong race by any means with JEFFERSON DAVIS fancied to come out on top. The 5-y-o has progressed gradually in defeat over fences to date, fourth over shorter at Tramore 2 weeks ago and this longer trip may suit now. Cloudy Morning and An'ball are a couple of others fancied to feature.

Pulled up over hurdles last time but had shaped well in a C&D hunter prior to that. Favourtably treated on that form.

Verdict

FENLON'S HILL returned to winning form at Down Royal at the end of last month and there is a distinct possibility the son of Court Cave will benefit from stepping up in trip. Goodthynemilan was second behind Magic Of Light at the Punchestown Festival and will be suited by the return to this distance, while Dorkas looks best of the remainder having won over C&D last time.

Verdict

GOODTHYNEINMILAN took another step forward when runner-up at Punchestown last month and can go in again under Davy Russell. Last month's Down Royal scorer Fenlon's Hill rates an obvious threat, while B C's Pride is well treated based on the form he showed in a C&D hunter on his previous chase start.
