Verdict

ASHJAN has not been disgraced in either of his two previous starts over fences and that experience could make him hard to beat this afternoon. Lleyton won over hurdles two starts ago and he could make the frame in a race of this nature. Others to consider in what appears to be a moderate contest are Can't Be Done and Comehere Hi.

Verdict

ASHJAN has taken well to fences and sets the standard here. Definite Income should come on for her belated return and is a potential danger, while Comehere Hi is respected on hurdles form.

Verdict

JAUNTY THOR has been in very good form of late, winning as recently as Tuesday at Fairyhouse. The quick return has to be a concern but if those exertions have not left a mark then a 6lb penalty is unlikely to stop him from winning again. Conduct Yourself made the frame off this mark at the end of last month and could do so once again, while Fairymount Boy also warrants consideration.

Verdict

JAUNTY THOR has thrived since joining this yard and remains on a workable mark despite his penalty. Bellgrove and Solar Heat head the dangers.

Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. Brought down in novice hurdle at Wexford (20f, good to soft, 20/1) 10 days ago.

Verdict

TARA DYLAN was highly tried last season and she once again faced a tough task in a competitive handicap hurdle at Down Royal on Saturday. Back in a maiden against her own sex, Thomas Mullins' mare should take plenty of beating. Under Surveillance has the form to suggest that she can win a race such as this, while Miss Chevious Girl has to be respected on her bumper form.

Verdict

MISS CHEVIOUS GIRL showed ability in bumpers without looking totally convincing, yet she is in good hands and lines-up in a race that won't take a great deal of winning. She can come out on top on hurdles bow, with Tara Dylan and Under Surveillance next best.

Verdict

RAIN IN SPAIN was beaten less than a length when second at Punchestown last time and there is every chance the dual hurdle scorer could make a welcome return to the winner's enclosure off a mark just 3lb higher. Lockeen Girl has struggled to string a sequence of solid performances together this summer but is capable at her best, while Ar Eagla Na Heagla and Chisholm Trail are interesting recruits to the handicap ranks. Lady Of The Sea and Our Rachael were both silver medalists when last seen in this sphere and are others capable of getting involved.

Verdict

LADY OF THE SEA was better than ever when second at Wexford 11 days ago and a reproduction of that form could be good enough to see her go one better now. Charles O'Brien's Rain In Spain is another who arrives on the back of a good recent runner-up effort and heads the dangers along with Red Pearl and Lockeen Girl.

Verdict

TOOR GENERAL was in fine form last month, returning from a summer break to score at Roscommon before dead-heating for major honours at Fairyhouse last time. Tony Martin's seven-year-old has the chance to make his mark again here following a 6lb rise and it would be no surprise to see him thrive once more while conditions suit. Benny In Milan made a successful raid on Southwell latest and has to be respected despite dropping back from that extended 2m4f trip, while Bay Hill appears a must for the shortlist on the back his recent outings. Liam Gilligan removing 7lb in the saddle makes him effectively just 2lb higher than when winning at Listowel in September.

Verdict

TOOR GENERAL shared the spoils with a subsequent scorer at Fairyhouse a month ago and it would come as no surprise were he to complete the hat-trick. Benny In Milan landed a bit of a punt at Southwell last time and he's still on a good mark, with Bay Hill the other key player.

Verdict

MORATORIUM has improved with each start in his career and got off the mark at the third time of asking in a bumper at Down Royal in May. He is a full brother to Sugar Baron, a decent staying handicap chaser, so the step up in trip on his hurdles debut looks sure to suit. Los Alamos could benefit from a switch to hurdles having proved disappointing on the Flat considering his top-class pedigree, while Kilchreest Moon looks best of the remainder on his third behind Royal Rendezvous at Galway.

Verdict

Bumper-winner MORATORIUM is bred to do better over obstacles and can make a winning start in this sphere. Los Alamos has been expensive to follow on the level this year but remains with potential over hurdles.

Promising type. 6/1 and tongue strap on, third of 11 in bumper at Fairyhouse (16f, good) on NH debut 26 days ago. Should improve.

Verdict

SILK AND SAND finished a good third on her racecourse debut last month behind Gemma's Flame at Fairyhouse, where she stayed on well in the closing stages. This looks a winnable contest on paper and she can make good use of her fillies allowance. Final List showed some promise when fifth on his first start at the Punchestown Festival behind Kalum River and should be able to improve for that experience, while Gateway To Europe, who was down the field in that same contest, has improved enough since to make him a threat.

Verdict

Joseph O'Brien's SILK AND SAND made a promising start to her career when third at Fairyhouse last month and this could represent a good opportunity for her to strike at the second time of asking. Final List has the potential to leave the bare form of his Punchestown debut in the spring behind and looks the obvious main danger.
