Fair Flat winner but only thrice-raced maiden over hurdles. Off 6 months too so has bit to find off stiff mark on handicap hurdle debut now.

Fair 12f Flat winner and also winner over hurdles over 2m at Gowran last month. Goes handicapping now and much respected.

5/2

Fairly useful winning 17f hurdler who arrives in good form, fourth at Kilbeggan last time. In the mix if able to shrug off modest latest effort back on Flat.

Scored over 2m at Naas in January but his recent form is not so encouraging. Makes handicap bow now with bit to prove.

Posted career best when winning 2m maiden hurdle at Cork on return. In good form since on the Flat so holds good claims back hurdling here.

Betting

Forecast

Yafordadoe (15/8), Swelltime (5/2), Laura Bullion (5/2), Battle Of Wills (17/2), Hammersmith (12/1)

Verdict

YAFORDADOE looks much the most solid option here and can add to his Cork success last month now back hurdling after a good spell on the Flat. Swelltime is less exposed than most of these so rates a big threat after his Gowran victory, while Laura Bullion can also have a say.

  1. YAFORDADOE (IRE)
  2. SWELLTIME (IRE)
  3. LAURA BULLION (IRE)
