Verdict

INFORMATIONISKING won a competitive bumper at Towcester back in February 2016 for Alan King. He has clearly had his issues since then but the son of Flemensfirth warrants the utmost respect on his debut for Enda Bolger and gets the vote. Imperial Way took his time to get off the mark in bumpers but he was always there or thereabouts and he is tried in a first-time tongue-tie this afternoon. Beyond The Law, Back Bar and Mount Hanover are others to note.

Verdict

MOUNT HANOVER posted an encouraging third on his Rules debut at Wexford last month and should have learnt plenty from that experience. He can land the opener. Imperial Way and Beyond The Law may be the principal dangers,

Verdict

Pat's Oscar won and placed second in two average races at Perth in September and while another good run can be expected, the six-year-old may find one or two too good. FEELING THE LOVE has improved with every start to date and her run in a competitive maiden hurdle last time out suggests that a mark of 94 may underestimate this filly. Chateauneuf Du Pap has to shoulder top weight but he still merits a place on the shortlist.

Verdict

FEELING THE LOVE hasn't landed a blow in a trio of maiden events thus far, but will appreciate this longer trip and looks fairly treated on her handicap bow. She can open her account. Pat's Oscar arrives in fine form and kooks the biggest danger, whilst Finding Touch can also make his presence felt.

Latest win in hurdle at Listowel in September. 10/1 and tongue strap on for 1st time, creditable sixth of 18 in handicap hurdle at Thurles (23f, good to soft) 21 days ago. Cheekpieces back on.

Verdict

FOLSOM BLUE was rated as high as 142 over hurdles at his peak and he won a handicap chase back in March off a mark of 127. The 10-year-old makes his debut for Gordon Elliott this afternoon and any market support would have to be a positive now back over hurdles off a rating of 123. Ask Nile has been running very well in novice chases this summer and he is another who may be underestimated by his current mark. Others to consider are Returntovendor and General Principle.

Verdict

This looks particularly trappy but WESTERNER POINT went the right way last term, winning 4 of his 6 starts over both sets of obstacles and, with his reappearance under his belt, he could represent a spot of value. The time to catch Folsom Blue could well be fresh on debut for Gordon Elliott, while his stablemate General Principle is also worth a second look.

Smart chaser. 1 win from 2 runs this season. Respectable 6½ lengths second of 5 to A Toi Phil in PWC Champion Chase at Gowran (20f, heavy, 11/8) 47 days ago.

Verdict

Gigginstown have a stranglehold on proceedings with four of the six runners, headed by Grade 2 winner A TOI PHIL and Galway Plate hero Balko Des Flos. The former beat the latter when they met at Gowran on the exact same terms they race off here and, despite the selection running slightly below par behind Disko at Down Royal, the same result looks likely here. Alpha Des Obeaux is arguably better at 3m but this looks his level, while Champagne West has run well fresh in the past so warrants a market check on his return to action.

Verdict

CHAMPAGNE WEST found the Cheltenham and Punchestown Gold Cups too much for him but he sets the standard on the form he achieved previously for this stable and can make a winning return. A Toi Phil and Balko des Flos are feared most.

Useful hurdler. Landed 11-runner novice chase (2/1) at Wexford (16f, soft) on debut over fences 17 days ago. Stable in good form. Obvious player with improvement expected.

Verdict

Magic Of Light would be a poignant winner as she was the last one for the recently departed owner Alan Potts at Fairyhouse just over a week ago and she has every chance having seemingly improved for the switch to chasing. Miss Eyecatcher is respected on her second to Shattered Love at Clonmel last time, but DINARIA DES OBEAUX won despite running over 2m on her chase debut at Wexford and has all the weight allowances over a longer trip that she has been crying out for.

Verdict

DINARIA DES OBEAUX was useful over hurdles and ran to a similar level when making a successful chase debut at Wexford 17 days ago. In receipt of her handy weight-for-age allowance, she can follow up with improvement expected. Magic Of Light and Miss Eyecatcher can emerge as the chief threats.

Verdict

ROARING BULL has created quite an impression in his career so far, winning a competitive Punchestown Festival bumper in April before thumping a modest field at Tipperary on his hurdles debut six weeks ago. The four-year-old looks open to improvement and can maintain his unbeaten record. Hardline had proved frustrating before winning last time out and his hood remains fitted, while the formerly classy Flemenstar is another name to note on his return from a 204-day absence.

Verdict

Big-field bumper winner ROARING BULL landed the odds with the minimum of fuss on his hurdles debut last month and he's an exciting prospect. It will be fascinating to see what Flemenstar is capable of on this reappearance back hurdling, but a safer forecast option is Hardline, a stablemate of the selection.

Verdict

This finale can go the way of MONSTROSITY, who was second to a potentially very smart type in the shape of Gallahers Cross at Galway last month and is likely to have come on markedly for that outing. This stamina-sapping venue should suit and, with the guidance of Nina Carberry, the pair can account for Warlike Intent, who could be anything for the Gigginstown House Stud team. Allardyce brings some solid form to the table but is becoming hard to win with.

Verdict

ALLARDYCE and Monstrosity have already shown enough to think they can win a race of this nature, with marginal preference for the former back in a bumper. It's taken Gordon Elliott a while to get Warlike Intent to the track after his point run, but market support for him would look significant.
