Verdict

Willie Mullins has his string in better form than usual for the time of year as he bids to retains his Galway leading trainers' title next week, and IOLANI can give the master of Closutton another July winner. The five-year-old was outpaced in a Flat contest at Bellewstown three weeks ago but is bred to appreciate hurdles and this half mile in increase in distance. Absolute Grit showed plenty of improvement last time out and he is another who should be suited by the trip, while Joseph O'Brien's Mischievious Max should have learnt plenty from his recent hurdles debut 11 days ago.

Verdict

IOLANI showed plenty of ability in bumpers and could be the way to go on hurdles debut for his leading yard. Mischievious Max who showed an aptitude for this job when fourth at Sligo 11 days ago is fancied to capitalise should the selection fail to fire.

Verdict

Penny Jane didn't win in the manner of an odds-on shot at Perth last time out, though she should appreciate racing against her own sex and the services of Davy Russell once more. Kings Dolly looked progressive prior to be pulled up at Kilbeggan last time out but she will have to be very good to get the better of MISS SAPPHIRE, who landed that very same contest. The five-year-old seems to handle any ground, is a battler, and continues to improve for a team enjoying a fruitful summer so far.

Verdict

This is between MISS SAPPHIRE and Penny Jane, with the former a confident choice to come out on top given that her Kilbeggan second is comfortably the best piece of form on show and she's displayed a good attitude up to now. Kings Dolly isn't a complete no hoper if she can put a dismal run behind her.

Verdict

SILENT SUN was narrowly denied by a game winner at Cork a fortnight ago and this looks to be a nice chance for compensation despite a 4lb rise for those exertions. The seven-year-old should appreciate conditions and could account for Island Villa, whose only two efforts in the last 12 months have come in the last seven weeks and both have been highly commendable performances in competitive contests. Rathnaleen Girl had her excuses last time out when pulled up and could be one for value seekers.

Verdict

ISLAND VILLA looks to be building up to something based on his latest Downpatrick third and is taken to notch a belated second career success. Silent Sun went close at Cork last time and should figure again, while it's easy to ignore Rathnaleen Girl's latest run (badly hampered) and she'd won at Wexford prior to that.

Once-raced maiden. 100/1, eleventh of 14 in novice chase at Roscommon (21f, good) on NH debut. Off over 2 years.

Verdict

Henry De Bromhead landed this prize last year and he must be confident of success once more with FIRE IN SOUL, the choice of Bryan Cooper out of of two Gigginstown House Stud representatives. The son of Robin Des Champs fell on chase debut but he was much better in a hot Wexford race over fences earlier this month and perhaps this longer trip will prove the key to him. Cable and The West's Awake carry penalties after recent respective successes, while the remainder arrive with something to find.

Verdict

THE WEST'S AWAKE readily drew clear from a stronger field than this when making a winning chasing debut over C&D, so it's not hard to envisage him following up 5 days later unless the unexposed Bull Ride can make a big leap forward from his own encouraging start over fences.

Verdict

With plenty of these arriving here in questionable form the preference is for AT RAINBOW'S END, who has finished second twice in her three chase starts to date. She bumped into a decent prospect last time out and that form makes her the one to beat this evening. Sharlanda has run well in both starts since switching to her new yard and her third-placed finish over C&D last time is rock-solid form. Flaviana has been disappointing in her last few starts but is a player based on her form from earlier in the year.

Verdict

SHARLANDA went the right way as a hurdler and, having jumped adequately, finished with a rattle on her recent chasing debut so, with the benefit of that experience, she's well capable of getting off the mark in a relatively weak beginners' chase. Flaviana is the classiest type in the field but recent finishing efforts are a concern, so At Rainbow's End might prove a more solid alternative.

Verdict

THE RITE ARTICLE was successful at Bellewstown two starts ago and he was far from disgraced when bumping into a decent rival on his next start. The nine-year-old has been raised 3lb for that last run but he can run from his old mark this evening. Snugsborough Benny has a similar profile to the selection and he has an obvious chance again. The shortlist is completed by Iusetaluvheronce and Naturally Blond.

Verdict

THE RITE ARTICLE arrives firmly at the top of his game, scoring at Bellewstown prior to a solid runners-up effort from this mark over 3m here 5 days ago. He looks sure to go well again in this sort of form and earns the vote. Whoyakodding and Snugsborough Benny are a couple of others worthy of close consideration, however.

Verdict

This is not the strongest of bumpers and it will be disappointing if CRUMPLEDANDCREASED cannot make amends for her defeat on debut when an odds-on favourite. The rest with Rules experience do not inspire much confidence but Kosovo is the pick of them. Paulie C is related to plenty of winners and he would not have to be a superstar to take this on his first appearance.

Verdict

CRUMPLEDANDCREASED failed to justify market support on her Kilbeggan debut but is evidently well regarded and this looks an excellent chance for her to gain compensation with a tongue strap added. Stage Summit is the only other with any wortwhile form to his name and could be the one for the forecast spot.
