HEAVEN HELP US had some very useful form to her name over hurdles last season and should take a bit of stopping if taking to chasing.
Zarkareva was well beaten when falling on her chase debut 8 weeks ago, but has the potential to leave that behind and may provide the chief threat ahead of Smiling Eliza.
DOLLAR VALUE made the perfect start to life over fences when a ready winner at Downpatrick and is taken to follow up now pitched straight into handicaps off a handy mark.
Jack Hackett rates a big threat though after his recent Kilbeggan victory with Le Hachette much respected too.
ROCKY COURT was back to form when second at Downpatrick a couple of weeks back and is taken to build on that and resume winning ways.
Stylish Moment has been in reasonable form over hurdles and was a dual chase winner last term so he may provide the main threat ahead of Ross O’Sullivan’s Benefit Run.
GOLDEN NOMAD disappointed in a handicap hurdle last time, but had been in reasonable form over hurdles prior to that and might up to making a successful start over fences under Robbie Power.
Summer Hill will be a threat if his jumping holds up, while Aprils Joy has the potential to build on her chase debut third in July.
This race revolves around GOLD SUN, who was in the process of producing a vastly improved display when exiting at the second last at Wexford 16 days ago.
He remains open to improvement and, granted a clear round here, compensation awaits.
Friary Gold’s latest run is best overlooked and, in good form prior to that, he is likely to be in the mix, along with Garrai Phaidin and Theatre Run.
This may boil down to a straight fight between JERANDME and Funky Dad, for all that Timiyan is not short of ability. Indeed, the duo in question both looked potentially useful recruits to this sphere when winning maiden chases at Kilbeggan.
Unless there’s significant rainfall, Jerandme is the one likely to be best suited by conditions here, a factor which tilts the scales firmly in his favour.
CLUAN DARA is a long time without a win, but figures on a good mark so is given the vote on the back of his excellent recent second at Tramore.
I’m Not Alone rates the obvious threat on the back of her career-best Wexford win with Loch Luatha appealing as a solid place prospect.
