Fairly useful hurdler. 40/1, given considerate reappearance when eleventh of 16 in handicap at Naas (10f, soft) 27 days ago, merely passing beaten rivals. Switches from Flat to hurdles. Up in trip.
200/1, again showed little when last of 13 in handicap at Bellewstown (14f, good) 79 days ago. Switches from Flat to hurdles.
Fairly useful Flat winner, making GB/IRE jumps debut. First run since leaving G. M. Lyons when tenth of 11 in handicap (40/1) at Down Royal (17.8f, soft) 15 days ago. Hooded for 1st time.
Winless after 10 runs, and below-form fifth of 14 in novice hurdle (9/2) at Kilbeggan (25f, soft) 29 days ago. Others more persuasive.
Road To Dubai (4/11), Premium Package (6/5), Samurai Cracker (7/2), Little Lady Lu (7/2), Monoxide (9/1), Fontainbleau (33/1)
SAMURAI CRACKER showed plenty switched to hurdles after 5 months off when runner-up at Down Royal just over 3 weeks ago, albeit never carrying much of a win threat. He should come on from that outing and can go one better. Road To Dubai rates as the main danger after presumably having a pipe-opener on the Flat last month, ahead of Premium Package.
