Verdict

Those with hurdling form do not set a particularly high standard but Killasser Boy is the pick of them based on two third-placed finishes over C&D earlier in the year. That said, there are some interesting recruits off the Flat and that includes MARY SUN, who won over 1m2f on the level and was Listed-placed over 1m in France. She has joined a yard who do very well in this sphere and she merits the utmost respect today. Manamite won both of his Flat starts on the continent and he is another who is high up on the shortlist.

Verdict

MANAMITE and Mary Sun, Flat recruits from France and Germany respectively, represent top yards and could be the pair to concentrate on. Preference is for the former, who was bought for 215,000 euros after winning both starts on the level and he's a potentially useful prospect. Cask Mate's bumper form looks decent and he has to be feared, while likely improver Texie Rexie is an each-way player.

Verdict

A chance can be taken with ARTICULUM, who showed plenty of ability in bumpers a couple of seasons ago and the only real concern would be the lengthy layoff. Stoneford has a similar profile to the selection, given that he has not been seen in a long time, and he displayed plenty of ability when winning a bumper. Secret Legacy was a beaten favourite last time out but it is far too soon to be writing him off, while Itsonlyrocknroll should also be in the mix.

Verdict

STONEFORD hasn't been seen out subsequent to winning a Fairyhouse bumper on debut almost 2 years ago, but he looked a good prospect that day and is very much bred to make his mark over obstacles. If the market vibes are positive, Noel Meade's charge will make plenty of appeal. Secret Legacy is also of strong interest on his hurdles debut and Itsonlyrocknroll needs considering, too.

Verdict

HUGHIES BAY only found one too good in a similar event at Thurles last month but the seven-year-old can make amends by taking this contest. Conna Cross was out of his depth in a Grade 3 novice chase last time out but his previous form gives him a shout in this moderate contest. The rest do not inspire much confidence but Sparky Stowaway is certainly the pick of them.

Verdict

FLY ROUND THE BEND failed to fire at Punchestown last time, but she was in the lead when unseating rider 2 out off this mark at Gowran previously and could be the answer. Hughies Bay found just one too strong at Thurles last month and, having also performed with credit on the Flat subsequently, he rates the main danger ahead of Padraic O Conaire and Conna Cross.

Verdict

Granny Biddy has to be given the utmost respect given her four wins and one second placed finish from her last five starts, although an 11lb rise for her latest win is an obvious concern. KILCARRY BRIDGE was given an enterprising ride when a narrow second in a Grade 3 chase last time out. That form should not be taken literally but it does show his well being. Canelie may not be good enough to beat the selection but she could reward each-way support today.

Verdict

The vote goes to GRANNY BIDDY, who has won 4 of her last 5 starts, including at this course the last twice. She's gone up 11 lb for her latest success but there may well be even better to come from this progressive 6-y-o. Kilcarry Bridge is potentially well treated back in this sphere judged on his cracking effort over fences last time and is clear next best. Grand Partner has each-way claims.
