Verdict

The highly-regarded MONBEG WORLDWIDE was fairly beaten when five lengths adrift of Jetz at Fairyhouse, but he is given a second chance to prove his quality dropping down from two and a half miles. He should have too much for these rivals, with stablemate Rakhine State one of the possible alternatives on his hurdles bow, while Game Of War and Hitdroadjack give Henry De Bromhead two live chances.

Verdict

Triple bumper winner MONBEG WORLDWIDE made a sound start over hurdles when second at Fairyhouse last month and is likely to take plenty of stopping. Game of War made a satisfactory hurdling bow at Fairyhouse in October and is likely to improve, while the selection's stablemate Rakhine State showed enough in bumpers to suggest he can make an impact in a race like this now hurdling.

Verdict

TINTOWN ROBIN was poor at Thurles, but he is backed to bounce back at a track he scored at the time before. Bay Hill let down favourite-backers when third on his last National Hunt start, however, he has been kept fit on the Flat since and is considered. Scotch Quay was much improved when third last time, and the mount of Rachael Blackmore completes the shortlist.

Verdict

NEDDYVAUGHAN was holding his form well prior to his last run, and he is selected to get back on track from a workable mark. His stablemate Bay Hill should continue to give a good account in this sphere, while Musical Ava has each-way claims once again.

Verdict

COQUIN MANS has yet to finish outside of the top two in his seven racecourse outings, and it is interesting that Willie Mullins steps the five-year-old back up to three miles following his second to stablemate Melon in the Grade Two WKD Hurdle. He appears to set the benchmark the others have to strive for. Taglietelle has been a useful campaigner over the years but has rarely proved his worth outside of handicaps so the main danger may come from Val De Ferbet, whose chase defeat of A Toi Phil at the distance last season puts him right in the mix.

Verdict

COQUIN MANS has run to a smart level when placed twice in Graded company this autumn and can get back to winning ways with his sights lowered slightly. Taglietelle has gone a while without a win but he's still useful and could be the one to give the selection most to do in receipt of 10 lb.

Verdict

LOCH LUATHA has knocked on the door the last twice, including here behind Tintown Robin over two miles. A step up in trip should suit and he is backed to go one better. Ali Bin Nayef was only half a length away from following up his Fairyhouse victory at Limerick last time and has to be of serious interest here. Alices Man and Battling Spirit are others considered.

Verdict

BATTLING SPIRIT could be the way to go having shaped well on his first run for his new yard here last month. Ali Bin Nayef and Loch Luatha are also respected.

Winner in hurdle at Fairyhouse in January. Off 8 months. Makes chase debut. Back down in trip. First run for yard after leaving Ms Sandra Hughes. Tongue strap on for 1st time.

Verdict

ROBIN DES MANA, the mount of Jack Kennedy, can build on his recent encouraging performances and get off the mark over the larger obstacles at the fourth time of asking. Gordon Elliott also saddles Steamboat Quay, who can't be ruled out despite failing to impress in two chase starts so far. The main opposition may come from Henry De Bromhead's Monbeg Chit Chat, who was second best on his fencing debut but is lightly raced and should have plenty of improvement to come.

Verdict

MONBEG CHIT CHAT made a pleasing start over fences at Cork and can improve on that to strike here. Robin des Mana left his previous efforts over fences behind switched to more positive tactics in a first-time tongue strap at Fairyhouse and could go well again from the front.

100/1, ninth of 12 in novice chase at Down Royal (19.6f, soft) 34 days ago. Makes handicap chase debut. Expected to be seen in a better light now.

Verdict

JUST GET CRACKING kept on at the one pace when third off this mark over 2m at Cork and the step up in distance appears a logical move by connections. Bitview Colin fell on his last start over fences at Hexham but remains on an attractive chase mark, relative to his hurdles win off 9lb higher in the UK in October, and could also take a hand. The pick of the remainder may be recent Punchestown third Black Scorpion.

Verdict

This looks particularly trappy so a chance is taken on BARD OF ARMAGH without the benefit of market clues. He looks the type to improve for the switch to handicaps and represents a yard renowned for doing well with such types. Just Get Cracking and Black Scorpion are others likely to be involved.
