A pretty weak contest and not many count. Butterflyverspiere would have a strong chance on either of her starts at Navan, but MOONLIT WINGS ran a very solid race on her hurdles debut at Leopardstown in March and will take beating if able to reproduce it.
Only one of these can be safely discounted. Bridge Native has a good hurdles mark, while the improving Take All could play a hand. Act Of God and the unexposed Clondaw Secret have chances too, but the vote goes to GREAT BEAR. He is still a maiden over hurdles, but has run very well in competitive handicap hurdles last twice.
A very weak affair, so much so that honest but limited handicap hurdler Still Alive has a compelling chance, but preference is for MASTER CORNWALL (NAP) whose third in a Tramore handicap hurdle last month was an improved effort and there may well be more to come.
Poor fare once more. Top-weight Broken Ice might be of interest on this ground, while Stealthy Tom could have prospects off this mark, but marginal preference is for DINNY’S GINNY who will appreciate the ground and her last two handicap runs in the autumn read well in the context of this race.
Running off a mark 12lbs below his chase mark, LORD LARIAT will be hard to beat providing he has settled well into his new surroundings with Dermot McLoughlin. Se Mo Laoch also has a major chance on the strength of recent chase form. Hewick could also feature after a good run at Kilbeggan on his return from a break.
If 126-rated hurdler BOLD ENOUGH can put in an error-free round of jumping on his chase debut it should be enough to see him beat Gold Des Bois, a 119-rated hurdler who has to concede 6lbs as a result of his Ballinrobe win. Nero Rock and Effernock Fizz are worth a look for future reference.
The 11-year-old WRONG DIRECTION does not have a great deal of mileage on the clock and reverts to handicap company with a solid chance on hunter chase form. Spancil Hill, another horse of similar vintage, rates a live threat with the form of his Clonmel win boosted at Killarney. Envol Pierji, let down by his jumping last time, is also respected.
Probably best to focus on the four-year-olds, and the market could prove instructive. ASHROE DIAMOND is a half-sister to a mare who won a Naas bumper by a big margin first time out. She may prove too strong for debut point winner North Of Nashville and Whispering Times.
