Runner-up in a point and has shaped with some promise over hurdles since switching to rules; however, would need to raise his game on chase debut; hood on first time.

Losing run since 2022 and tailed off in two handicap hurdle runs at Naas since joining this yard; however, he ran some good races in defeat over fences last year and he will be a live player if he gets back to that sort of level returning to the larger obstacles.

Verdict

Tempo Chapter Two has the best form in the book but his recent hurdle efforts for a new yard are a bit of a concern. Wee Charlie was going to finish runner-up before coming down last time and he’s run several good races in defeat over fences. However, PEBBLE BLEU is preferred after an encouraging start to life over fences last month on similar ground and she can step forward from that run here. Knocknagappagh is another that has shown ability over the larger obstacles and has place claims. [Phill Anderson]
