Verdict

SEAPOINT has not beaten beaten far in a couple of similar events to this in recent starts and she appears to be the one to beat this afternoon. Varkhann is another who has displayed minor promise already over hurdles and he could prove to be the main threat to the selection this afternoon, ahead of Aoibhe's Beau and Oscar Madness.

Verdict

SEAPOINT wasn't beaten a long way in hotter race than this last time, so a repeat performance might be enough to get off the mark at the expense of Varkhann, who boasts excellent claims based on the form of his penultimate run. Cairnhill is a potential improver if he can put a disappointing performance last time behind him.

Verdict

MR MOONDANCE was only narrowly denied when finishing second at Sligo last time out and he is hard to oppose of just 2lb higher in the ratings, despite the 95-day layoff. Arctic Sofia also hit the crossbar when last seen and four-year-old remains unexposed over hurdles. Others to consider in a wide-open event are Auction Reminder, Hernandoshideaway and Lleyton.

Verdict

HERNANDOSHIDEAWAY turned in his best effort over hurdles when sixth in a deeper race than this at Navan last month and there's plenty of scope from this mark now he has found his feet over obstacles. Still Alive shaped quite well last time and is a player at the foot of the weights, with Here For The Craic another threat if he refusal to race on the level last time was an aberration.

Unreliable type. Career best when winning 10-runner handicap chase (9/1) at Downpatrick (23.5f, soft) 6 days ago, well on top finish. Respected from lower hurdles mark.

Verdict

BALLYFINBOY was an impressive seven-length winner off a mark of 91 over fences last time out and he makes plenty of appeal in his bid to take advantage of a much lower hurdles ratings today. Thisonesforollie is another recent winner to note, although the handicapper has made life harder for her today with an 8lb hike. Lockeen Girl is rather unpredictable but she is talented enough to go well and the first-time tongue-tie may help her chances.

Verdict

THISONESFOROLLIE showed improved form when getting off the mark over hurdles in determined fashion 3 weeks ago and, now returned to handicap company, she is fancied to go well again now she's up and running. Viking Hoard didn't totally convince at Sedgefield recently but is a lead player on the pick of his form, whilst recent veteran chase winner Ballyfinboy is no forlorn hope either.

Verdict

MONITION was disappointing when last seen in a bumper at Navan at the end of March, but the full-brother to Champagne Fever is better judged on his second outing over hurdles at Punchestown at the end of January when finishing third to Eagle Lion. The step back up in trip is certainly in his favour and he can account for Stubborn Logic, who improved when upped in distance at Clonmel last time, and Licklighter, who turns out quickly after finishing second to My Sister Sarah at Punchestown on Tuesday.

Verdict

It's likely there's more to come from the lightly-raced MONITION and he gets the nod to make a successful reappearance under Davy Russell. Stablemate Anytime Now may have found the race coming a bit quick on him last time and has claims on his placed efforts prior to that, while Denis Hogan's Licklighter is also respected on the back of a good second at Punchestown last time.

Verdict

MOONBALL has taken full advantage of the four-year-old allowance over fences and won as she pleased at Downpatrick on her second attempt over the larger obstacles by 15 lengths. She now carries a winner's penalty, but still gets weight from most of her rivals and a repeat of her latest effort should be enough. Teqany is an obvious threat getting all of the allowances on her chase debut, while Monatomic has the potential to prove better now switching his attentions to chasing.

Verdict

MOONBALL was undoubtedly the beneficiary of a soft lead when opening her chase account at the second attempt at Downpatrick 6 days ago, yet she still deserves crediting with significant improvement given the ease of that victory. She can go well again in this groove with better still to come. Monatomic went the right way over hurdles last term and can also play a lead role.

Verdict

COWBOY DES LONG was second over this distance and fences at Thurles back in March and with a recent comeback run under his belt, could be ready to play a leading role in this open contest. The nearest challenger could well be Moroval, who was a beaten favourite when last seen in a hurdles contest and returns to the larger obstacles on his seasonal reappearance with no doubt a summer of schooling on his back. Rocky's Silver is an interesting recruit from the pointing field, while Gordon Elliott's Sweetlight D'oroux could be the typical Gigginstown improver now trying fences.

Verdict

Not a strong-looking event and SONOWYOUNO is taken to build on his chase debut and get off the mark, with this longer trip sure to suit. Sweetlight d'Oroux could leave her modest hurdles form well behind now tackling the larger obstacles on her return and she's very interesting.

Twelfth of 14 in bumper (4/1) at Listowel (16f, soft) on NH debut 34 days ago. Should improve and looks the best choice in a weak race.

Verdict

Shanakey's debut for Willie Mullins was too bad to be true, when well beaten and returning to the unsaddling enclosure blowing hard, and it would be no surprise to see an improved showing here. However, preference is for Gordon Elliott's ASK NEILUS, who gained some useful experience last month and had excuses on quick ground on her most recent outing, with an encouraging fourth-placed run at Listowel before that. The best of Owenacurra Lass' form entitles her to respect here, including when just three and a half lengths adrift of Colreevy at Fairyhouse, but her efforts away from really deep ground temper enthusiasm.

Verdict

A weak bumper and although SHANAKEY was well beaten on debut at Listowel much better was seemingly expected judged on her position in the betting. She could leave that run well behind. Newcomers Enquire and Sansimmar are worth a look.
