Verdict

French flat winner SALDIER deserves plenty of respect in the Rich Ricci colours on Irish debut and the four-year-old is fancied to prove too good for this opposition. Pete So High was fourth in an above-average Leopardstown maiden hurdle over Christmas but could be one for handicaps further down the line, with former 73-rated Flat horse Park Paddocks likely to give Gordon Elliott and Gigginstown House Stud a strong hand in this contest. Khudha is another name to note.

Verdict

SALDIER was bordering on useful on the level in his native France, and having transferred to the powerful Willie Mullins team, a successful hurdles debut would come as no surprise. Pete So High and Randalls Ur Poet set a solid if unspectacular standard.

Verdict

Redhotfillypeppers took a step back in the right direction here earlier this month and she looks suited by this step up in distance, while Lackaneen Leader had no answers to a progressive winner at Limerick last time out and shouldn't have to face anything of that quality again in this contest. Preference, however, is for ARDEAN LASS. 1-4 in Irish points, the seven-year-old has shown ability over hurdles and looked a winner in waiting when second on heavy ground at Ayr last time.

Verdict

MOYHENNA showed a really willing attitude when landing a bumper last month and she could easily be up to the job back hurdling. Redhotfillypeppers clearly has potential in this sphere but must learn to settle, while Lackaneen Leader is also open to improvement.

Verdict

GRAINEYHILL bolted up for Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell at Clonmel last week and a 6lb penalty looks there to be defied for the seven-year-old. He got better the further he went and this progressive son of Craigsteel will likely relish this extra four furlongs on just his third start for this handler. The Ballyboys did it well on testing ground last time and is a decent yardstick at this level, while Ballymadun is another who goes on this surface and shouldn't be too far away.

Verdict

GRAINEYHILL is going the right way and should take some stopping under a penalty for his in-form yard. Bronco Bill and Ballymadun head up the dangers.

Twice-raced maiden. 33/1, last of 5 in bumper at Leopardstown (16f, soft) 19 days ago. Makes hurdles debut. Significantly up in trip.

Verdict

Bumper winner AS YOU WERE has to give weight to most of this field but looks to have plenty more to offer for Alan Fleming and gave the classy Blow By Blow plenty to think about at Navan four weeks ago. Nick Lost is bred to win his fair share of races but might be one for handicaps, while similar sentiments apply to Heroesandvillains, who hasn't been particularly well backed on either of his two starts under Rules for Noel Meade.

Verdict

AS YOU WERE left his hurdling debut form behind when runner-up at Navan last month, and with further progress likely, he is taken to open his account over timber. Nick Lost is entitled to be thereabouts, while Noel Meade’s Heroesandvillians is another to consider.

Promising individual. Cheekpieces on for 1st time, unseated rider in minor event chase (4/1) at Tramore (16f, heavy) 16 days ago, in the process of running well when departing late on. Respected.

Verdict

SOUL KALIBER was still in there pitching when unluckily hampered and unseating Jack Kennedy at the second-last at Tramore and, with better luck today, he could grab his first victory. His biggest danger looks to be the other Gigginstown runner Monbeg Chit Chat, who ran second at Cork before pulling up at Clonmel. Hopefully he can bounce back to form while 2m-winning hurdler Seskin Flyer warrants respect on his chasing bow.

Verdict

SOUL KALIBER looks the way to go having been shaping up well before unseating Jack Kennedy late on at Tramore on New Year's Day. Seskin Flyer could be the danger on his first go over fences.

Remains a maiden after 21 NH runs. 9/2, creditable third of 9 in handicap chase at Tramore (21f, heavy) 16 days ago.

Verdict

PACK YOUR BAGS has been hammering on the door over hurdles and, with first-time blinkers equipped on his return to chasing duty, he looks like the one that they all have to beat. Flemenstorm also returns to fences after narrowly missing out over hurdles last time and he rates the biggest threat, ahead of past C&D scorer Ardmillan and the lightly-weighted Shanklys Dawn.

Verdict

DO BE DOIN' was set for a big run until departing at Thurles last time and could gain compensation with a clear round now. Pack Your Bags is a likely improver over fences and has a big shout in first-time blinkers.

Verdict

SIZINGDOWNTHERHINE was beaten by under a length when second in a similar contest at Wexford last season and having enjoyed an outing between the flags earlier this term to blow away any cobwebs, Jim Dreaper's eight-year-old shades the verdict. Follow The Moon should go close if reproducing the form of his Limerick second last month, while Senators Glory and Eddies Miracle are others capable of making their presence felt.

Verdict

SIZINGDOWNTHERHINE shaped well when runner-up in a similar event last season on his sole start under Rules and this looks a good opportunity for him to go one better. Eddies Miracle looked set for second until a late tumble at Cork in November and may prove next best ahead of Follow The Moon.
