Verdict

A fascinating opener with MASONS DAUGHTER of particular interest on his first start for Willie Mullins and debut over hurdles. Winner of a bumper last year, she clearly possesses plenty of ability and has the scope for the considerable improvement, similarly Champayne Lady, a good second over this C&D last time and sure to be in there pitching again. Moonlight Escape has been knocking hard on the door of late and completes a very strong shortlist.

Verdict

CHAMPAYNE LADY showed form more in line with her winning bumper form when second in a big-field novice over C&D recently and on that evidence, is capable of landing a race such as this. Masons Daughter has been transferred to Willie Mullins so has to be feared, along with Moonlight Escape.

Verdict

Ardmillan turned in another solid effort when finishing second over fences at Down Royal last month and he shouldn't be inconvenienced by the return to hurdles. BEE A BENEFICIARY is just preferred, though, as she went down all guns blazing when only narrowly touched off at Punchestown and looks to have more to offer in handicap company. Pat's Oscar was behind the selection last time but could pick up some place money today.

Verdict

BEE A BENEFICIARY shaped very well when runner-up at Punchestown two weeks ago, and she remains one to be interested in. Ardmillan is running well at present, while Pat's Oscar is the type to bounce back quickly.

Verdict

FORCE OF FORCES made an encouraging first start for Willie Mullins when finishing fourth at Thurles last month and with the promise of plenty more to come, he looks worth siding with in this moderate affair. Curious Times hinted at better to come in a bumper here last time but his hurdles form to date is modest, while Ask Heather didn't shape too badly at Punchestown and might be capable of getting involved.

Verdict

FORCE OF FORCES shaped with encouragement on his first outing since leaving Venetia Williams after 12 months off when fourth at Thurles and this looks a good opening for him. Ask Heather is selected for the forecast.

Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. 66/1, seventh of 10 in novice hurdle at Tramore (21f, heavy) 62 days ago. Cheekpieces on 1st time. Makes handicap hurdle debut.

Verdict

QUEEN KHALEESI was touched off by under a length over the extended 2m7f at Thurles when last sighted and wouldn't need to find much improvement in order to gain compensation off the same mark over this slightly shorter trip. Itsallhappening took a step in the right direction when fourth at Fairyhouse last time and has place possibilities, likewise Brosna George, who drops in grade and steps up in trip after finishing down the field at Naas.

Verdict

QUEEN KHALEESI's consistency is hard to knock and she rates a solid proposition to go one place better than she did at Thurles 6 days ago. Brosna George is a big danger on the pick of his form and along with Itsallhappening heads up the dangers.

Modest hurdler. Well held (19.2f, heavy) on debut over fences in September, but recent point winner (Jan 14) and signs are she could make a much better chaser. First run for Gordon Elliot.

Modest hurdler. Well held (19.2f, heavy) on debut over fences in September, but recent point winner (Jan 14) and signs are she could make a much better chaser. First run for Gordon Elliot.

Verdict

BOLD SKY was last seen routing the opposition between the flags last month and the mare has since switched stables to the Cullentra House maestro Gordon Elliott. That point-to-point spin should have him spot on for this outing and a repeat of her success that day could be achieved here. Three Kings would have finished in the mix if staying on his feet last time and is considered, while Coherent appears the best of Philip Rothwell's pair of runners.

Verdict

THREE KINGS was still in contention when unseating his rider 3 out in an above-average maiden chase at Gowran last month, and he should be competitive at the very least in a much weaker event here. Recent point winner Bold Sky could be the type to do better over fences, while Seskin Flyer should be suited by this drop back in trip.

Pulled up in handicap chase (7/2) at Tramore (21f, heavy) 44 days ago.

Verdict

Flemenstorm clearly likes the venue, having won and finished runner-up over hurdles here in past visits, and he makes plenty of appeal on his return over the larger obstacles, while veteran performer Mister First has a definite chance off 2lb lower than when fourth at Down Royal. The vote, however, goes to handicap debutant NICOLE'S MILAN. He improved massively from his first to second start when runner-up behind subsequent winner Goodthynemilan at Punchestown and this mark of 102 is very attractive based on that effort.

Verdict

NICOLE'S MILAN matched the pick of his hurdles form at the second attempt over fences when runner-up at Punchestown 2 weeks ago and his opening mark in this sphere looks a fair one. Flemenstorm ran well over hurdles last time and is feared most.

Twice-raced maiden under NH rules. First run since leaving Daniel G. Murphy when 50/1, pulled up in hunter chase at Thurles (23.7f, heavy) on debut over fences 24 days ago.

Verdict

The only horse to beat TIMEWAITSFORNOONE in three starts between the flags was recent Listed hurdles winner Hardline and he appears to hold rock-solid claims on his first start under Rules. Sizingdowntherhine was only beaten half a length on his sole outing in this sphere and he warrants plenty of respect despite a couple of disappointing efforts in point-to-point events since. Allannahs Gold, a recent point-to-point winner partnered by Irish Gold Cup-winning jockey Derek O'Connor, and Follow The Moon, second behind the useful Burning Ambition at Limerick in December, are others to note.

Verdict

TIMEWAITSFORNOONE cost plenty as a 4-y-o, and following a couple of point wins, he could well be the answer on Rules debut. Sizingdowntherhine sets a pretty good standard and is the obvious danger.
