Making GB/IRE jumps debut. Well-beaten sixth of 7 to Making Light in Park Express Stakes at Naas (8f, heavy, 100/1) 25 days ago. Tongue strap on for 1st time in this code.

Verdict

AZUA EMERY has an unwanted record of being a beaten favourite on Irish soil on her last five starts, though she surely won't get a better chance than this to strike and looks the most likely winner on this event. Little Princess has shown flashes of ability for Jessica Harrington and should appreciate this return to better ground, while Lily Trotter took a step forward at Limerick when second last time and could prove best of the remainder.

Verdict

A good opening for AZUA EMERY, who ran well when partnered by Davy Russell for the first time at Cork last month. Lily Trotter looks the danger after her improved second at Limerick.

Verdict

BLACK KEY has proved a little frustrating to follow in his career so far, but he hasn't been beaten far on his last three starts and should have come on significantly for his last run when third at this venue. The step up in trip and better ground should assist the six-year-old, who looks sure to be a decent chaser a little further down the line. Former bumper winner Catwalk King should go well, while Mad Carew is open to further improvement.

Verdict

BLACK KEY and Catwalk King may well be the pair to focus on here, the former is proving consistent and produced his best effort to date when third on handicap debut over 2m here 17 days ago. Point recruits Difficult Decision and Macgiloney can do best of the others.

Thrice-raced maiden. Third of 8 in novice hurdle at Clonmel (16f, heavy, 66/1) 30 days ago. Back up in trip. Makes handicap hurdle debut.

Verdict

Pat's Oscar took a backwards step in his her development last time, although the return of Davy Russell to the saddle is a positive and she faces her own sex here. Sunset Sadie made steady progress when third at Downpatrick last month and there could be another handicap in her, but this can go the way of course winner GOAHEADMAKEMYDAY. She travelled like the winner last time and should have benefitted from an 84-day break.

Verdict

ASKANN hasn't progressed as expected from her debut effort over hurdles, yet her opening mark rates a fair one on balance, and she could be worth chancing given her low-mileage profile. Goaheadmakemyday and Sunset Sadie may emerge as the chief threats.

Modest maiden on the Flat, best effort at 8.5f. Has left Andrew Oliver/gelded since latest start. Hard to fancy on hurdles bow.

Verdict

Creadan Grae looked progressive prior to a below-par effort at Galway last time out, a performance that can probably be forgiven due to the unique nature of that track. This extended trip looks beneficial, though he has had a 213-day break and needs a market check. Cote Tete might be one for handicaps during the summer, and it could be worth chancing ROBIN THE HARE. The selection stayed 3m well when second at Cork 17 days ago and should have have more to offer for this stable.

Verdict

HUGO 'N TAZ has shown plenty over fences, and he looks an interesting runner switched to hurdles for his in-form yard. He could be the way to go in a weak maiden. Cluan Dara, Creadan Grae and Robin The Hare can all battle it out for minor honours.

Remains a maiden after 17 NH runs. 8/1, running creditably when brought down in handicap hurdle at Cork (16f, heavy) 28 days ago would have finished in frame.

Verdict

I'M SERIOUS shaped like a drop back to 2m would suit when second at Clonmel last month and the addition of Davy Russell to the saddle is a positive move by connections. The five-year-old can win off a mark of 90 and is expected to have too much for Rock On Barney, who has gone well the last twice under this promising 7lb claimer, and Urbanist, who was a beaten favourite in fourth last time but did have his excuses.

Verdict

I'M SERIOUS is doing nothing wrong at present, and seems sure to go well again with Davy Russell in the saddle. Urbanist and Trans Wood head the opposition.

Kalanisi filly. Half-sister to point winner Master Butcher. Dam unraced.

Verdict

Shirleys Gold Well represents a powerful handler but looks like more of a long-term prospect and could be seen to better effect over hurdles later in the year, while Tens Or Better is interesting with Patrick Mullins on board. Killisk Ben Rose and Madera Express both have notable jockey bookings too, but this can go to Willie Mullins and IFYOUCATCHMENOW. Second to Mary B at Gowran Park in February, the selection has finished third and fourth in two Listed events since and that form looks to be the best on offer.

Verdict

IFYOUCATCHMENOW will be suited by this step up in trip on her third start in bumpers and can land the spoils for Willie Mullins. Western Victory looks the big danger.

Verdict

CASTLE NORTH was beaten by a fair rival on his Rules debut when runner-up to Getaway John at Punchestown back in February and the son of Stowaway looks likely to build on his first run for the Willie Mullins team. Dream Conti is respected being a half-brother to the useful Bello Conti, while others to note include Dinons, second to Red Jack here last spring, and his stable companion Fullasthesea.

Verdict

DINONS failed to give his running here in December but is worth another chance bearing in mind the promise of his debut 12 months ago. Castle North was beaten only by a subsequent winner on debut at Punchestown and holds obvious claims, with Dream Conti making most appeal of the newcomers.
