Form & Verdict

0-17 over hurdles but placed on five of her seven starts this year, most recently when second of 16 at Kilbeggan (3m, good to yielding; refitted cheekpieces) three weeks ago; ought to cope with today's ground and be right in the thick of things again.

Placed in staying handicaps over the summer including on softish ground at Limerick and chased home 15l winner Cathys Quest at Kilbeggan; tame Fairyhouse run on latest raises questions however.

Form & Verdict

Not seen since a disappointing run in May but his clear second at Haydock (3m, good to soft) in April was a good effort and, after only six hurdle starts, he's not yet fully exposed; major player if back on song.

Easy winner at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) last winter and also went close at Carlisle (3m1f, good to soft) in the spring, both under Dylan Johnston; not so good since but her latest fourth back at Doncaster was a bit better and she's well treated if staging a full-scale revival.

Verdict

The Longest Day has won his last two over C&D but the ground might have turned against him today and preference is for TANGO THEATRE, who has posted some very creditable performances in defeat this year and certainly deserves to get a win on the board. Second choice is Imperial B G, who has a significant role to play if able to match the form he showed two starts ago.[Chris Wilson]
