Seemingly a four-way contest with slight preference for chasing newcomer SHUMAKER, over Ya Boy Ya, who made a promising debut over fences recently, and the enigmatic Dakota Moirette.
Touch Of Oscar turned in a much improved performance recently at Navan and rates the form pick but TIGER VOICE (NAP) probably has more scope for improvement, having scored comfortably on his recent chasing debut at Galway.
Gordon Elliott has already introduced a smart juvenile hurdler in these colours this season in Duffle Coat, so any market strength in Lucky Fella should be taken seriously.
However, it could pay to side with proven hurdles form, with SCHOLASTIC narrowly preferred to Jeff Kidder.
Hard to look beyond BEACON EDGE, twice narrowly beaten in good novice company in the spring and for whom this looks a good comeback opportunity.
The five-year-olds Fusain and Dewcup will surely win good races in time, but this looks a tough ask at their stage of development.
Not many of these would be capable of running in premier handicaps on the level, never mind being eye-catching in defeat – which makes the unexposed WINNER TAKES ITALL hard to look past on his return to hurdles.
The Rubinator looks sure to run his race and De Mazzaro is another with place claims.
BETH HORAN has good bumper form to her name and is likely to make a better jumper.
This looks a good opportunity for her to make an immediate impact over flights at the main expense of Robinnia, while Highstreet Roller and Emma Prada are dangers.
Flying Colum and Minella Escape have profiles of horses who could be smart in time and, while JIMMY JIMMY doesn’t look anything out of the ordinary, he could be ready to take this opportunity.
Gladiatorial strikes as a horse who has been held in some regard and he pulls out quickly having placed in a Navan bumper, while Rosgalme hasn’t been seen since winning his at Thurles last winter.
