Verdict

MONKEYLOU should enjoy this soft ground for Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell and showed plenty of ability when winning on the Flat at Killarney four weeks ago. He will have been schooled intensively by his classy operation and looks sure to be given a prominent ride. Flat To The Max represents the same stable and did it well on heavy ground on his only outing for Ger Lyons before switching yards, while Lever Du Soleil could prove best of the remainder.

Verdict

Gordon Elliott saddles a couple of fairly useful Flat winners in the shape of MONKEYLOU and Flat To The Max and they could be the pair to focus on, the former shading the vote under Davy Russell.

Twice-raced maiden. Ninth of 13 in novice hurdle at Kilbeggan (16f, good, 100/1) 14 days ago.

Verdict

DONT HESITATE was a two-time winner in France last year and must be feared making her debut after a long absence for Willie Mullins and Jared Sullivan. The five-year-old is exactly the type that this combination thrives with and this looks to be a nice opening for her to strike. Light Of My Life slipped when travelling reasonably well at Tramore last time, while Inner Knowing could prove best of the remainder with Barry Geraghty booked to ride.

Verdict

DONT HESITATE, a dual bumper winner (including a Grade 3) in France, has been found a tremendous opportunity to make a winning start to her hurdling career in a really weak race starting out for top connections, so she's an obvious choice here ahead of Light of My Life, who can't be judged on her hurdling debut.

Thrice-raced maiden. 100/1, tenth of 12 in novice hurdle at Sligo (16f, good) 43 days ago. Tongue strap on 1st time. Makes handicap hurdle debut.

Thrice-raced maiden. 100/1, tenth of 12 in novice hurdle at Sligo (16f, good) 43 days ago. Tongue strap on 1st time. Makes handicap hurdle debut.

Verdict

SHE'S MADE IT has looked good lately when placing in competitive events, and looks good enough to win one of these modest handicap hurdle events. The five-year-old goes through this sort of ground and remains open to improvement at the age of just five. Trendsetter struggled on the Flat last time but previously ran a decent race in this sphere at Roscommon, while La Regle showed promise in maiden company last season and an opening handicap mark of 89 looks fair.

Verdict

SHE'S MADE IT is on an upward curve and has shaped as if ahead of her mark the last twice, so there's every chance she can get off the mark in a race where the bulk of the opposition don't have much to recommend them. Le Regle and Grand Canyon are both open to improvement and could provide the main threats.

Verdict

PRESENTING MAHLER couldn't have won any easier on her most recent start at the Listowel Festival last Saturday, and connections bid to take advantage of a lower mark over hurdles. Minnies Secret is of interest making her handicap debut having shown some useful form last season, while first-time cheekpieces could make a difference to Platinum Empress.

Verdict

ROBIN ON THE HILL again left the impression she should have finished closer at Listowel last week, so she remains one to be interested in from this sort of mark. Water Sprite and Platinum Empress head up the opposition.

Verdict

BOMBER JACKSON scored with a bit in hand when a surprise winner at Listowel last time and a 6lb rise may not be enough to stop him landing a quick follow up here. Wexford second Oskar High could have more in the locker and a 3lb rise for being beaten less than two lengths looks fair. Dundeedy Lad will appreciate the forecast going and makes some appeal, with Shimmer and Shine also worthy of a place on the shortlist.

Verdict

OSKAR HIGH bounced back to his best when runner-up at Wexford 13 days ago and a similar display may be good enough to see him regain the winning thread. Dundeedy Lad and Celtic Monarch are a couple of others to consider.

Twice-raced maiden under NH rules. Second of 8 in hunter chase (6/1) at Cork (24f, heavy) on debut over fences 172 days ago. Multiple point winner, including latest start (May 26). Plenty to find.

Verdict

MONTALBANO's only chase win came on heavy ground and Willie Mullins' six-year-old should appreciate the return to the mud here, while he was in the process of running a big race when falling two out at Listowel in the summer when last seen. Flaxen Flare is a solid alternative who seems sure to be thereabouts if the favourite fails to fire, while point winner Cloudy Day is interesting on just her third Rules appearance.

Verdict

MONTALBANO has been given time to recover since suffering a heavy fall at Listowel in June and he looks the one to beat providing his jumping holds up. Flaxen Flare may be the one to take advantage if it doesn't.

Good 7 lengths fifth of 16 to Ringrone Castle in handicap chase (5/1) at Roscommon (24.6f, good) 45 days ago.

Verdict

Holly Flight makes some appeal on her placed efforts at Roscommon and Tramore this summer and commands respect, though marginal preference is for RINGRONE CASTLE, who impressed over 3m at Roscommon when scoring off 8lb lower on his penultimate outing. Jamesmicheal was seven lengths adrift of the selection in fifth that day but could feasibly narrow the gap now reopposing on better terms.

Verdict

HOLLY FLIGHT was in the process of showing improved form when departing late at Listowel last week and looks on a good mark back in a handicap. Jamesmicheal and Fergiethelegend are others to consider.
