Lightly-raced maiden. 25/1, fourth of 5 in bumper at this course (18f, good to soft) 70 days ago. Makes hurdles debut.

Verdict

COOL COLONNADE has gained experienced on the level for William McCreery and is expected to show up well on his hurdles bow, debuting for Willie Mullins and sporting a first-time hood. Rock On Dandy is a triple winner on the all-weather and is interesting on his NH bow, while it would also come as no surprise to see Dermot Weld representative Bill Hickok mount a bold bid first time out as he's a half-brother to a hurdles winner.

Verdict

The betting will provide more clues here. COOL COLONNADE gets the nod having joined Willie Mullins. Rock On Dandy and Dayereh have both shown enough on the Flat to suggest they can make their presence felt in a race like this.

Poor hurdler. Remains a maiden after 10 hurdle runs. 8/1, respectable fourth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Wexford (16f, good to firm) 9 days ago. Cheekpieces on for 1st time.

Verdict

CHEAP AND CHEERFUL has improved with each outing to date and is expected to build on his Limerick fourth last time and take closer order. Holy Motivation won between the flags earlier in the year and is potentially better than she's shown under Rules to date, though the main danger may be Absentee, who is entitled to improve for the fitting of first-time cheekpieces and this drop back in distance.

Verdict

Hard to see past CHEAP AND CHEERFUL who shaped nicely at Limerick last weekend and likely has more to offer. Holy Motivation is open to progress on the back of his Gowran hurdle bow and can provide the chief threat ahead of Superefficient.

Verdict

Flat winner TREE OF KNOWLEDGE has a 332-day absence to overcome but has been eased in the ratings since he was last sighted in a maiden hurdle at Tramore in August and is one to monitor closely in the betting. Back Bar is 8lb higher than when scoring with ease at Clonmel in March and is nominated as the main danger, while Mr Moondance makes some appeal for a place based on his Roscommon third last month.

Verdict

TREE OF KNOWLEDGE has an absence to overcome but this one-time smart Flat performer could be well treated of his opening handicap mark and get the nod, with confidence increased should the betting vibes be strong. Gordon Elliott's Back Bar may prove next best ahead of Mr Moondance.

Verdict

PLEASURE DOME overcame jumping mistakes to win a beginners' chase at Tramore last time and might well appreciate this switch to hurdles. The five-year-old is a versatile type who should give her connections plenty of fun in the coming months and she can account for recent Downpatrick scorer Maple Lawn here. The latter could be using this as a springboard towards the Galway Festival later this month but still represents a bigger threat than the likes of Dorkas and Ar Eagla Na Heagla.

Verdict

PLEASURE DOME showed a really willing attitude when successful over fences last month, and she should have more to offer over hurdles, so she is taken to give weight all round. Maple Lawn could be the forecast option.

Verdict

Coole Craft was unlucky to bump into one at Downpatrick last time and merits respect, while Padraic O Conaire should appreciate this step up in distance with leading jockey Paul Townend booked to do the steering. Movingswiftlyalong outran her odds at Galway when last seen in October, but race-fitness could be an issue here and MUROOR could be the one to follow. Fresh from a spell on the Flat, a mark of 92 back over hurdles is enough to convince that he is worth a chance.

Verdict

COOLE CRAFT arrives on the back of finerunner-up efforts on his last 2 starts and can get his head back in front. Padraic O Conaire has a solid recent profile and should give another good account of himself, while Bere Haven is unexposed ahead of his return to action with the drop back in trip likely to suit.

Verdict

HUGO 'N TAZ got off the mark on his third attempt over hurdles at Ballinrobe when winning in good style over 2m5f and an opening handicap mark of 113 looks very fair for the son of Kayf Tara. Draycott Place has been in and out recently so it would be no surprise to see him bounce back to form having won two starts ago, while Graineyhill can go well returning from a 148-day absence.

Verdict

HUGO 'N TAZ arrives on the back of a ready win in maiden company at Ballinrobe last time and gets the vote in a race where most of his rivals have questions to answer at present. Graineyhill is one of those after a poor run last time but he had been in good form prior to that and could be the main threat if bouncing back after a break.

€52,000 3-y-o, Fair Mix mare. Half-sister to useful hurdler/smart chaser Wayward Prince. Dam (c73/h71) 21f chase winner. Highly respected on debut.

Verdict

QUEENS BOULEVARD is a half-sister to Grade 1-winning hurdler Wayward Prince and, representing champion trainer Willie Mullins on her racecourse debut, she can make a winning start. Just A Boy comes from a decent jumping family and should go close on his first career outing, while Russian Dancer is respected if bouncing back to the form of his debut effort when second at Ballinrobe.

Verdict

A strong possibility this will develop into a straight fight between the Elliott and Mullins newcomers JUST A BOY and Queens Boulevard. The former gets a narrow vote but the betting will likely provide a better guide.
