Made little impact in a handful of hurdles outings and fared no better sent chasing last month.

Verdict

DE PLOTTING SHED was well backed for the novice handicap on day one of the Cheltenham Festival, an outing that was on the whole disappointing, but he has the chance to make amends in much calmer waters here and he should have too much class for his rivals if repeating his fencing form from earlier in the season. Mon Lino is worth persevering with despite struggling of late and a switch to chasing could do the trick, while Glenabo Bridge may be set for another podium finish.

Verdict

Smart hurdler DE PLOTTING SHED clearly wasn’t 100% when pulled up at the Cheltenham Festival last month, and he should prove hard to beat returning to much calmer waters (stands out on form). Useful hurdler Mon Lino shouldn’t be written off making his chasing bow for his in-form yard, while Mighty Stowaway and Lean And Keen both have place claims.

Winner of maiden hurdle in France on debut in October. Joined outstanding trainer since and has to be respected with further improvement forthcoming.

Winner of maiden hurdle in France on debut in October. Joined outstanding trainer since and has to be respected with further improvement forthcoming.

Verdict

Willie Mullins holds a strong hand here saddling four with leading claims, three of which carry the colours of Sullivan Bloodstock, with preference for the impressive Gowran winner SAGLAWY. The Youmzain gelding thrived in the mud that day when 15 lengths clear of a handy yardstick in Icario (has since won at Down Royal), and he is expected to flourish in similar forecast conditions here. The Rich Ricci-owned Saldier somewhat let down his lofty reputation in the Triumph Hurdle when only fifth but has to be respected here, while Gordon Elliott's dual C&D winner Mitchouka and Fred Winter winner Veneer Of Charm make this a Grade Two contest with plenty of depth.

Verdict

SAGLAWY is clearly a useful sort in the making. He ran out a comprehensive winner of a heavy-ground maiden hurdle at Gowran last month, and with further improvement expected, he looks to have an excellent chance of following up. Saldier, Eoline Jolie and Mitchouka all merit plenty of respect in an intriguing juvenile hurdle.

Hacked up by 11l to win his maiden hurdle at Limerick over three furlongs shorter at odds on when staying on and pulling clear. Earlier placed form suggests she has ability, one to consider.

Verdict

Gordon Elliott is double-handed at the top of the weights here with Monkshood, who should find this easier than the Graded contests he's been running in lately, and the highly-regarded Poli Roi who can get his season back on track upped in trip having been crying out for a staying test on his outings so far. Gigginstown, who are responsible for of the aforementioned pair, also have Mortal running in their colours. Joseph O'Brien's gelding has knocked on the door the last twice and is another who should benefit for today's stamina challenge. That handler also saddles Speak Easy, who was a beaten favourite in Grade Two company last time and must be respected with Barry Geraghty in the plate, while Massey's Wood was strong at the finish when scoring at the distance at Thurles and is another who must be considered. However, the way CASTAFIORE PARK won at Limerick last time hinted that there would be definitely be more to come when upped in trip once again and she could be thrown in at the ratings on her handicap bow, having only been beaten by useful mares over inadequate trips so far this term.

Verdict

MASSEY'S WOOD looked as if he had more to offer when winning at Thurles last time out, and with his stamina assured and Denis O'Regan in the saddle, he looks to have the best chance here. Speak Easy looks an interesting alternative and won't be far away, a remark that also applies to Mischievious Max from the same stable.

Three wins in a row to start this season, with two bumpers and a maiden hurdle followed by a second and a recent fourth in a Grade Three here over two furlongs further. Each way possibilities.

Verdict

Despite carrying top weight, Landofhopeandglory is interesting back over hurdles, with chasing appearing to be aborted for now, and the pick of Jospeh O'Brien's two runners is capable of running a big race off his current hurdles figure. Abbyssial, Voix Du Reve and Meri Devie all have questions to answer following disappointing performances at the Cheltenham Festival, while Karalee has struggled to get her head in front this season. Therefore, preference is for another Closutton inmate in URADEL, who returned from 265 days off the track in winning fashion when landing a Naas novice by seven lengths and could still have plenty of mileage in his handicap mark racing off an enticing figure of 132 here. Play The Game, a maiden hurdle winner over this C&D last time, could run well at longer odds, while Morgan and Duca De Thaix give Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown House Stud a more than useful hand in this.

Verdict

URADEL has done absolutely nothing wrong so far with two wins already this season and with even more improvement likely he may well be able to come home in front again assuming he gets a fast pace to aim at. Stable companion Nessun Dorma looks to have second to aim at, though Morgan also has to be of interest for his in-form stable and could be the one for third.

Won by a head here over three miles and a furlong in January but up 7lb for that which seems pretty harsh. All out that day and not sure to be suited by this drop in trip.

Verdict

SUNSETSTORISE was an easy winner on his debut for this yard at Navan last month and even a 14lb rise in the ratings may underestimate this 10-year-old. Fire In His Eyes is a stablemate of the selection and he has been knocking on the door of late in novice chases. Flemenstorm has to be respected given his recent form, while Artic Pearl is another who makes the shortlist.

Verdict

If SUNSETSTORISE improves for his first run in over a year as expected and handles the step up in trip then Nina Carberry ought to be able to steer the ten-year-old home in front despite this large field. Nicole's Milan could yet prove to be his biggest danger here though both Flemenstorm and even Rightback Atya can get involved in the fight for the minor places.

Fairly useful chaser. Course winner. Well-beaten fourth of 5 to Sumos Novios in Dr Vincent O'Brien Centenary Chase at Cork (24f, heavy, 6/1) 16 days ago. Tongue strap back on.

Verdict

ASTHURIA only found the subsequent Cheltenham Festival winner Benie Des Dieux too good when she was last seen in a Listed race at Naas in February. On that occasion Willie Mullins' mare finished in front of Dinaria Des Obeaux and Youcantcallherthat and she meets those rivals on the same or better terms this evening. Dinaria Des Obeaux then chased home Youcantcallherthat in a Grade 2 at Limerick but a 4lb swing in the weights can see that form reversed today.

Verdict

ASTHURIA bumped into subsequent Cheltenham Festival-winning stablemate Benie des Dieux when runner-up at Naas last time and there doesn't appear to be anything of that one's quality up against her today. She should prove tough to beat, with Gordon Elliott's Dinaria des Obeaux taken to fill the forecast spot.

Fairly useful chaser. Twelve runs since last win in 2016. Well-beaten second of 4 to Wilcosdiana in hunter chase (evens) at Cork (20f, heavy) 15 days ago. Back up in trip. Others more persuasive.

Very smart chaser at best but not seen under Rules since pulling up in 2016 Champion Chase. Couple of point wins last spring but beaten favourite both runs in that sphere this year.
