Verdict

RHINESTONE looked the real deal when opening his account last December at Thurles, scoring by 19 lengths from the useful Sancta Simona, who has won three times since including a Grade 3 last time. Joseph O'Brien's Montjeu youngster went on to finish second in a Grade 2 bumper before not being disgraced when well fancied for the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival. Having been put away since, it would be no surprise to see him become a leading figure in this discipline this season. Stablemate Anywayyoulookatit has to be respected, while Classic Concorde was only beaten a neck on his stable debut for Andrew McNamara in a Down Royal bumper and could prove to be just as useful over hurdles. Point winners Empire Burleque and Envious Editor are others noted.

Verdict

RHINESTONE reached a smart level in bumpers last season and this looks a nice starting point for him over hurdles. Bumper winner Empire Burleque should build on his Galway hurdle debut fifth a fortnight ago and is the obvious main threat.

Verdict

FOOTPAD was unbeaten in the novice chase division last season landing four Grade 1s in the process and it is hard to see the six-year-old's impressive run over fences come to an end here. A winner at all the major festivals last season, he had Saint Calvados well held in the Arkle at Cheltenham and with the good ground unlikely to suit Harry Whittington's five-year-old, it's unlikely he'll be able to bridge the 54-length deficit here. Another comfortable victory could be on the cards for Willie Mullins' son of Creachadoir. The Gigginstown pair, Arkwrisht and Tycoon Prince, look best placed to fight it out for the minor money.

Verdict

FOOTPAD carried all before him in 2m novice chases last term and should have little difficulty extending his unbeaten chase record to 6 on his retiurn to action. Breitish raider Saint Calvados could be the one for the forecast spot.

Verdict

Espoir D'Allen was a leading fancy for the Triumph Hurdle before an inexplicable performance at the Dublin Racing Festival in February when well beaten by the reopposing Mr Adjudicator. Gavin Cromwell's gelding bids to get his career back on track, but he faces a tough assignment on his return. Mr Adjudicator finished second in the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham when having SALDIER in behind back in fifth, but the latter reversed the form at Punchestown and looks to have the scope for further improvement this season.

Verdict

SALDIER got the better of Mr Adjudicator in the AES Champion Four Year Old Hurdle at Punchestown 6 months ago and has a bit more scope as a hurdler based on pedigree, so he's expected to uphold the form with that rival here, with Espoir D'Allen likely to be their nearest pursuer.

Verdict

DALLAS DES PICTONS was a dual bumper winner in France earlier this year and looks an interesting recruit for Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown with his sire, Spanish Moon, enjoying decent success in the National Hunt sphere so far. Borderline Chatho improved considerably from his hurdles debut when fourth to Boot Camp at Down Royal in June and is respected back up in trip, while School Boy Hours, a half-brother to Finian's Oscar, can hopefully have a clear round after falling on his second start at Cork in May.

Verdict

DALLAS DES PICTONS, a dual bumper winner in France, looks the type to make into a useful hurdler at least having been acquired by Gigginstown and Gordon Elliott since last seen, and there's not enough quality in the opposition to make a solid case for taking her on. He's the obvious choice ahead of Borderline Chatho and School Boy Hours, who are both open to improvement, admittedly.

One win from 32 NH runs. Twenty six runs since last win in 2015. 9/1, eleventh of 12 in handicap chase at Galway (18.2f, good to soft) 14 days ago. Easy to look elsewhere.

Verdict

SIR BOB has shaped well over fences the last twice for Robert Tyner and his day looks close now returning to action following a 189-day absence. The six-year-old looks nicely treated of 112 in this company and should be suited by this step up in distance. Peacocks Secret did it well at Wexford last time and enjoys this decent sort of surface, while Ballybrowney Jack and Nicole's Milan both need to bounce back from falls last time out.

Verdict

PEACOCKS SECRET got off the mark over fences in a Wexford maiden recently and looks fairly treated back in a handicap. Sir Bob will be a threat if ready to roll after 6 months off, while Stowaway Forever is open to improvement now switching to handicap company for the first time over fences.

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien has his string in fine form at present and PLINTH's recent second to Bedrock at Tipperary was boosted when the latter won a Grade 2 at Down Royal ahead of Samcro on his next start. JP McManus has won the last two renewals of this race and all looks set for a big run from the selection. De Name Escapes Me provides the powerhouse owner with further ammunition, while the likes of Rooster Byron, Slippery Serpent and Mr Diablo also merit close attention.

Verdict

This looks wide open but PLINTH ran up to his best when runner-up in a Tipperary Grade 3 on his most recent start and could be the way to go returned to handicap company. De Name Escapes Me, Brex Drago and Rooster Byron head up the dangers.
