Seemingly three count: RUINOUS, hurdling starter Jawbox and fellow four-year-old Top Line Tommy, with tentative preference for the Cromwell runner, who has found a good opening.
Plenty of pace on, with the top three likely to go forward, and it could play into the strengths of recent winner MAKE MY HEART FLY. There should also be more to come from Rescue Package.
MOONBALL skipped around here when making a winning return just over a fortnight ago and will be hard to beat even off 8lb higher provided she doesn’t bounce. Rasiym is classy while course winner Coral Blue and Morning Skye are respected.
STREETS OF DOYEN is a former bumper winner who showed enough in maidens to suggest he’ll be winning a handicap hurdle of this nature while Bective Cave, Abyssinian, Iamastartoo and Ashton Court are just a number of dangers in a wide-open race.
Fit from the flat, HAPPY LAD (nap) has solid credentials at a track he likes. Bellewstown running gives Allduckornodinner an edge over three of these rivals, with Henry Sellers having an edge over the four of them on collateral form. Golden Nomad should be thereabouts.
IN YOUR SHADOW would have a major chance here if he can reappear in the form he was in when last seen in the spring. Two course winners, Aprils Joy and Classic Concorde, come into it too.
Providing her jumping holds up, EIMEAR looks well-treated here for Matthew Smith. In an open contest, Don’t Let Go could come into it if freshened up by Conor O’Dwyer.
