12:27 – Alastor

Willie Mullins could hardly have asked for a softer introductory race for French Group 2-placed ALASTOR and it would be a major surprise if he could not win this. Dubai Clover can be best of the rest.

13:02 – Ney

It might be worth forgiving NEY’s run at Thurles last time out when too bad to be true and he can give a good account back over this course and distance. He gets weight from Caldwell Diamond who has a similar profile to the selection. Invictus Machin looks like a nice prospect but may be better suited to further than this.

13:37 – Japers Jack

Walk On The Brise is likely to be a short-priced favourite in a decidedly ordinary contest, but does not set a daunting standard. One that might have a chance of lowering her colours is JAPERS JACK, progressive in two runs over hurdles with the step up in trip likely to suit.

14:12 – All Those Years

Smallish field but an interesting race. Top-weight Lucky Max will appreciate the drop in trip, while Rodaniche is certainly interesting if he can reproduce his form of a year ago. Takarengo is another that should go well, but the selection is ALL THOSE YEARS, winner of the novice hurdle at this meeting a year ago after a long absence and potentially ahead of the handicapper.

Pravalaguna-Naas

14:47 – Hard Rain

Not much depth to this race unsurprisingly. Trishknowsbest would have a chance if able to run to her hurdles mark. Union Park has the advantage on experience, while Paladian Jewel has scope for improvement after a good run at Thurles. The most likely winner is HARD RAIN after a solid effort in a handicap chase at Naas last month. A reproduction could be good enough.

15:22 – Yabo

Carrolls Cottage posted his best effort over fences last time and the longer trip is fine. However, at a likely bigger price, it might be worth taking him on with the mare, YABO. She took her form to a new level when winning on return and while she fell when bidding to follow up at Thurles, she’s worth giving another chance to from a lenient looking mark. The consistent Halsafari can give another good account.

15:57 – Fancy Girl

Tilloughna sets the standard on Rules form but she could be vulnerable to any above average rivals. FANCY GIRL is preferred after a game win in a point on debut prior to her sale for £200,000 and she can help enhance her yard’s excellent strike-rate in bumpers this term. The newcomer Double Dating is an obvious danger for Gordon Elliott.
