Verdict

FREEDOM CHIMES was just five lengths behind a subsequent 16-length winner in Park Paddocks when third on his hurdles debut at Wexford and he could prove difficult to beat with normal improvement. Thomas O'Malley is the obvious danger arriving on the back of a short-head defeat on the Flat, while Itsalonglongroad should give a good account if none the worse for his Down Royal blunder.

Verdict

Fairly useful Flat performer THOMAS O'MALLEY has shown enough to suggest he can win of race of this nature over hurdles. Freedom Chimes and Itsalonglongroad are a couple of others to consider.

Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. 50/1, sixth of 10 in novice hurdle at Wexford (16f, heavy) 30 days ago.

Verdict

Not the strongest of maiden hurdles and WINTER SOLDIER should go close with natural improvement from his debut fourth at Thurles behind Scheu Time, who would have gone close at Aintree on Saturday but for a last-flight fall. Biddy Be wouldn't need to be anything special to make a major impact on her racecourse introduction while Port Rashid may improve for a first-time tongue-tie.

Verdict

WINTER SOLDIER is in excellent hands so it would come as no surprise if he were to leave his hurdling debut form well behind. Biddy Be is an interesting newcomer and market support would need taking seriously.

Verdict

Veteran performer ARCHIE MEADE will arrive full of confidence following his gritty success at Naas and a 5lb rise might not be enough to anchor him if arriving in the same determined mood. Other last-time-out scorer Littlestickarubarb must enter calculations while Hero's Welcome is worth a market check at the very least ahead of his handicap debut.

Verdict

BETTATOGETHER shaped a bit better than the distance beaten suggests last time, and could be worth chancing on just his fourth start for Gordon Elliott. Littlestickarubarb, Tornado Watch and Archie Meade are solid alternatives in an open race.

Winner in chase at Downpatrick in May. 12/1, tenth of 15 in handicap chase at Killarney (20.6f, good). Off 9 months. Switches from chase to hurdles.

Verdict

JENNYS GREY produced her best hurdling performance to date when three lengths third over 2m at Limerick and, providing this extra five furlongs doesn't stretch her stamina too far, she should go close from just 1lb higher. Cottonvale continues to run well in defeat and merits consideration with Jack Kennedy an eye-catching jockey booking, while Getaway Rose holds each-way claims.

Verdict

COTTONVALE has shown enough to suggest he’s capable of defying this sort of mark, so he receives the vote. Jennys Grey would be a threat if proving her stamina over this longer trip, while Getaway Rose is another to consider.

Verdict

SHANKLYS DAWN needed every yard of the extended 2m3f when scoring at Downpatrick, suggesting that this longer trip will be more of a help than a hindrance, and she gets the vote to follow up off 4lb higher. Highest Benefit was narrowly beaten at Clonmel and should go close again, while Swift could potentially improve for first-time cheekpieces.

Verdict

HIGHEST BENEFIT was a good second at Clonmel last time and can finally open his account. Shanklys Dawn and Open To The World are others to consider.

Verdict

MACS LEGEND followed up a point-to-point success with a good second in a hunter chase at Cork and a similar effort could see him go one better. Recent point winner Gotaway is interesting back in this sphere, while Caniwillyegiveme could be a big player if forgiven his recent effort in a handicap chase at Fairyhouse. Sliabh Muire Lass has the assistance of Derek O'Connor in the plate and has a chance if putting her best foot forward.

Verdict

MACS LEGEND was clear of the rest when an excellent second in a similar event at Cork 2 weeks ago and can go one place better. Caniwillyegiveme is capable of going close if ready to go after 6 months off, while Arch Chancelor, Glorious Galway and Gotaway have all shown ability in points.

Once-raced maiden. 66/1 and tongue strap on, last of 13 in bumper at Leopardstown (16f, soft) on NH debut 109 days ago.

Verdict

DORRELLS PIERJI would be of serious interest based on his 30-length success in a point-to-point last year, but the fact he comes from Willie Mullins' battalion of bumper performers makes him difficult to oppose on debut. Cuneo has been beaten 10 lengths on his last two starts but at least is holding his form, while Dorydalis was a fair performer in bumpers before falling over timber and may be better back in this discipline.

Verdict

DORRELLS PIERJI easily won a point last year and holds obvious claims for a yard that has an excellent record in bumpers. Dorydalis and Cuneo have both shown fairly useful form already and can make their presence felt.
