11st 7lb

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Punchestown bumper winner on soft-to-heavy; still travelling well, although looking second-best, when unseating at the last at Naas in December; excuses (coughing, struck into) when pulled up at Fairyhouse the following month; beaten by a big margin when favourite at Leopardstown; drop in trip here may do the trick.

jumped right on occasions, prominent early, bit short of room and lost position soon after start, soon towards rear, headway and prominent after 6th, went second and challenging after 2 out, no extra when tired jump last, no match for winner

Bumper winner; still travelling when unseating at the last at Naas last month, although the same could be said for the winner who found plenty; ought to go well with the step back up in trip sure to suit.

5 yo Mare

OR:

Form & Verdict

Impressed on debut at Newcastle (2m, AW) in January; only won by a neck there next time but she did well to get up in that steadily run race; should get a proper gallop here and this unbeaten 5yo is a possible player.

Dual bumper winner on AW; has not transferred that form to hurdles in two attempts but this drop back to 2m may help.

J: Jonjo O’Neill Jr

Won two AW bumpers at Newcastle before finishing tailed off in the Grade 2 at Aintree; ran okay on her hurdling debut at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) but no better than that; looks vulnerable.

6 yo Mare

OR:

Form & Verdict

Won last year on her first two starts (2m, good to soft/heavy) and ran another big race when second past the post under a double penalty at Ayr in February (2m, good to soft; disqualified - rider breached whip rules); goes up in grade but she has each-way possibilities.

Has done her winning at 2m but ran well over 2m3f at Haydock (Listed) and Carlisle on heavy/soft the last twice, neck behind Dontyawantme latest; now gets a 12lb pull with that rival; leading claims upped further in trip, provided she stays (not guaranteed on breeding).

Two-time bumper winner who has translated all that ability to hurdles, winning a pair of 2m mares' novices in the mud at Hexham; well worth this crack at a higher level.
