Useful on Flat in France, winning 6 times, not seen for over a year. No surprise to see a big run over hurdles for powerful new connections even after a long absence.

Useful on Flat in France, winning 6 times, not seen for over a year. No surprise to see a big run over hurdles for powerful new connections even after a long absence.

Verdict

THRONES GAME looks the most interesting contender in the field having run in a Group 2 on the Flat when last seen in August 2017 at Deauville. She has since joined champion trainer Willie Mullins and could prove a cut above the opposition if able to replicate her Flat form on hurdles debut. Steel Cap got off the mark on his first outing un a bumper at Kilbeggan earlier in the month and is respected on his first attempt over timber, while Zero Ten won a bumper here in July which suggests he is capable of going close in a contest of this nature.

Verdict

THRONES GAME has a long absence to overcome but is in good hands and could be up to making a successful start in this code judged on her useful Flat form. Kilbeggan bumper-winner Steel Cap, Roseriver Has and Zero Ten are big players also.

Fair hurdler. Winner in bumper at Limerick in July. 10/1, very good third of 12 in novice hurdle at Listowel (24f, good) 8 days ago.

Verdict

BRAID BLUE has won both his bumpers in good style and defied a penalty at Perth on his latest start at the beginning of last month. His attentions are now switched to hurdling and the step back up in trip looks sure to play to his strengths on the evidence of his debut win over 2m4f at Kilbeggan. Kaatskill Nap was third on his first attempt over timber at Gowran and can take a step forward from that effort, while Batcio has kept on improving in bumpers, winning his latest start at Kilbeggan, and completes the shortlist.

Verdict

BATCIO improved with each run in bumpers, getting off the mark in impressive fashion at Kilbeggan last month, and he appeals as the type to do well over hurdles. Braid Blue is another good prospect for his top yard, while Kaatskill Nap is sure to leave his hurdling debut form behind.

Verdict

Pleasure Dome won cosily on her latest start in a handicap hurdle at Sligo which ensures she is top rated in the field and looks the first choice on jockey bookings. That said, there was a lot to like about CALIE DU MESNIL's win here last month when staying on well in the closing stages, and she can maintain her unbeaten record since her switch to Ireland. Chambord Du Lys and Awayinthewest look best of the remainder.

Verdict

PLEASURE DOME is really motoring now and looks up to completing the hat-trick. Calie du Mesnil and Chambord du Lys can make it a 1-2-3 for Willie Mullins.

Verdict

KANSAS KID was last seen when going down by a neck at Thurles in October 2016 but, despite the long absence, looks of considerable interest on his return to action with the booking of Barry Geraghty. Teqany won on his sole start over timber at Tramore two starts ago and looks open to improvement, while I'm Serious looks best of the remainder on the form of his second at Bellewstown last month.

Verdict

KANSAS KID has been absent for the best part of 2 years, but his near miss at Thurles when last seen was a career-best effort and the booking of Berry Geraghty catches the eye. If the market speaks in the 9-y-o's favour, the hint should be taken. Rathnaleen Girl and I'm Serious both need considering and Teqany, who made a winning hurdles debut at Tramore, is another for the short-list.

Modest hurdler. Won Ballinrobe in from 3 runs this season. 12/1, tenth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Wexford (20.4f, good) 103 days ago. Makes chase debut.

Verdict

WINTER ESCAPE produced a useful performance on his first start for Aidan Howard when second here, with the winner subsequently running well in a Flat handicap at Leopardstown at the weekend. He was a well-regarded hurdler when in England with Alan King and could easily go some way to fulfilling that potential with a first chase victory here. Manger Et Trotter gives the green and gold of JP McManus a useful second string, while Sympa Des Flos was a useful novice hurdler who could get involved on his chase bow.

Verdict

WINTER ESCAPE made a solid start for his new yard when second over C&D 7 weeks ago and can go one better now. The Willie Mullins-trained Sympa des Flos was a fairly useful novice hurdler last term and rates an obvious threat in what could develop into a straight fight.

Verdict

Tramore winner BELLGROVE was not disgraced when beaten less than two lengths over 2m3f at Downpatrick off his new mark last time and could get back to winning ways now back down in trip a furlong and racing off the same rating. Fairymount Boy makes appeal back over the larger obstacles, while a case can also be made for Solar Heat, who was a winner over this trip when last seen in this sphere.

Verdict

Not the most reliable bunch, with the vote going to ISLAND MASTER from his reduced mark having shaped as though back in form at Tipperary last month. Fairymount Boy and Bellgrove have tasted success this summer and head the opposition.

Verdict

The experience of Gordon Elliott's BEST OF DUBAI could come to the fore here and having made the top tree in all but one of her seven starts, she appears the one to beat. Pont Aval is an interesting newcomer for Willie Mullins and the half-sister to the Grade One winning hurdler Pont Alexandre could be capable of making her presence felt. Point winner Wait For No One is another who could get involved.

Verdict

PONT AVAL could be well placed to make a winning debut for Willie Mullins. The luckless Best of Dubai may have to settle for second again.
