Verdict

IRISH LASS put in a brave display on her hurdles debut at Downpatrick four weeks ago after a 10-month absence and Willie Mullins' charge looks likely to open her account over the sticks here. Gambling Mistress showed plenty of promise at Punchestown and Barry Geraghty gets the leg up again, while Indian Music makes just her second start under Rules and showed ability at Clonmel last month when fourth in a deep race against the boys.

Verdict

IRISH LASS sets a solid standard and should prove hard to beat with improvement on the cards. Gambling Mistress and Indian Music are feared most.

Verdict

KATOPTRIS might only be a four-year-old, but she showed plenty of talent when winning at Kilbeggan and looks open to even further progress for Gavin Cromwell. This decent surface seems to be essential to her, and she can go well here on her handicap bow. Leading contenders look thin on the ground, but Littlestickarubarb is better than what she showed last time, while Youngnedofthehill should appreciate this slightly stiffer test after failing to change gear over shorter at Wexford.

Verdict

KATOPTRIS showed improved form to get off the mark at Kilbeggan last month, and given she looked far from the finished article, there should be plenty more to come now heading into handicaps, so she receives the vote. Torquay is another to note now handicapping, while Littlestickarubarb makes up the shortlist.

Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. Ninth of 13 in novice hurdle at Tramore (16f, soft, 100/1). Off 11 months. First run for yard after leaving T. M. Walsh. Makes handicap hurdle debut.

Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. Ninth of 13 in novice hurdle at Tramore (16f, soft, 100/1). Off 11 months. First run for yard after leaving T. M. Walsh. Makes handicap hurdle debut.

Verdict

MATIN D'ANJOU makes his stable debut for Robbie McNamara and the booking of Patrick Mullins looks relevant towards his prospects. The return to hurdles off a fair mark is an intriguing move, following last two promising runs over fences, but the six-year-old still has plenty of time in his career to combine the two disciplines and looks sure to go well. Wee Tiger was third behind a progressive sort over 3m here last time and may well enjoy the drop in trip, while Viking Hoard seldom runs a bad race on ground as quick as this.

Verdict

MILL QUEST ended losing run here last week and is taken to follow up given she hasn't been with this yard long. Wee Tiger and Viking Hoard head the dangers.

Verdict

Miss Sapphire showed some consistent form last season but would be fully entitled to need this outing after a 322-day absence, while Caltex represents powerful connections but has struggled the last twice over hurdles and must do better now sent over fences. It could be worth following BLACK WARRIOR, who was unlucky to bump into a talented gelding at Kilbeggan last time and he may find improvement now reunited with Davy Russell for the first time in 12 months.

Verdict

BLACK WARRIOR hasn't yet matched his useful hurdling form in this sphere, but he's still of interest and a race of this nature should be within his capabilities. Miss Sapphire and Caltex command respect on their chasing debuts.

Latest win in hurdle at Leopardstown in December. Useful winner at 24f over hurdles. Third of 5 in minor event chase (11/4) at Wexford (20f, good) 38 days ago. May do better.

Verdict

CHILDRENS LIST was last seen posting a fine effort in the Grand National, where he travelled and jumped well for a long way before being pulled up due to his stamina limitations coming to the fore. He races on good ground for the first time in over two years and should relish conditions in what looks an easy enough assignment over fences. Nick Lost looked to improve for going chasing when winning at Punchestown and he can post a solid threat, while Mine Now is a decent hurdler who can go close if able to replicate his best form over timber.

Verdict

NICK LOST looks the one to beat following an impressive start over fences at Punchestown last month. Childrens List will be suited by a return to this trip and is feared most.
