J: Darragh O’Keeffe

Won a valuable Flat handicap at the Curragh in September and carried that form over to hurdling; went closest when second to Harvard Guy over 2m4f at Navan but well below that form against the same rival two weeks ago; strong pace will suit and could go well at a big price.

Off the mark in this sphere with a maiden hurdle success at Navan (form boosted since); 10l behind Fun Fun Fun in Grade 3 at Naas since; needs to step again to defy this mark but he's lightly raced over hurdles and he's rated 105 on the Flat so it would be no surprise if he can get involved.

Bumper winner and 2m Flat winner for Willie Mullins; fair 1m4f handicap run on stable debut after spell with Tony Mullins; satisfactory effort when not well treated by the race conditions in 1m4f amateur race at the Curragh last time; interesting with 7lb claim.

Verdict

As a Group 1 winner who has run creditably in stakes races on his last two starts HELVIC DREAM is a cut above these rivals. He handles heavy ground and should see out the trip, which he has attempted only once. Sugaree may prove more effective over this trip than either Coeur Sublime or Lord Erskine. [Alan Sweetman]
