J: L P Dempsey

Went close at Kilbeggan in August but two lesser efforts last month including back over timber from his lower hurdle mark a fortnight ago; 2-5 over fences though and there may be more to come in this sphere; best form on good; engaged at Gowran on Friday.

Form & Verdict

Sole hurdle win from 15 attempts came here a year ago; well behind Na Caith Tobac last time on chasing debut after an absence, so should have improved but hard to have too much confidence in.

Form & Verdict

Just 1-43 under Rules, that coming over hurdles in 2018; however, has run some decent races this spring and was just denied off this mark at Sligo last September, so isn't dismissed; seems best on good ground.

Dual winning hurdler is rated 109 in that sphere; poor on chasing debut at Thurles but much better when fourth at Kilbeggan last time; interesting off this mark on handicap chase debut; is at her best on good ground.

Form & Verdict

Point' winner in January was running well in a hunter chase here in March before falling; safely held in two novice events since but could fare better on handicap debut and market support would be significant with tongue-tie added.
