13:25 – Sign From Above

A big-field maiden hurdle where lots arrives with chances, but preference is for SIGN FROM ABOVE, who showed fair form when making a winning start for this yard on the Flat in September, and he exceeded expectations when finishing fourth in a hot race on hurdling debut at Leopardstown over Christmas. That effort sets the standard on form and he is entitled to improve for that experience. Valsorpresa also has better days ahead of him and is next on the list, although a solid case can also be made for both Classic Lord and Ideal du Tabert.

14:00 – Ted Hastings

TED HASTINGS was prolific last year, winning four of his five starts over hurdles, and he was also successful on his sole start on the Flat. His latest win came at Fair Hills in America when running out a convincing winner of the American Champion Hurdle and he looks potentially well treated now making his handicap debut from an opening mark of 120. He has been freshened up since and likely has more to offer, so looks the way to go. The King of Prs and Invictus Machin, who are both trained by Gavin Cromwell, head the many dangers.

14:35 – Magical Zoe

MAGICAL ZOE looked a good prospect when winning a Grade 3 event at Downpatrick on her second start over hurdles and she arguably shaped like the best horse at the weights when runner-up in the Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. She emerged with her form and reputation enhanced despite meeting with defeat for the first time and she may yet take another big step forward now moving up to two and a half miles for the first time. Ashroe Diamond looks a rock-solid opponent, while Princess Zoe, who finished behind the selection last time, will be suited by this distance and she has a bigger performance in her over timber.

15:10 – Parmenion

Willie Mullins has four interesting runners in this Grade 2 and the most interesting of them is PARMENION, who stood out on form when opening his account over hurdles at Leopardstown last month, but it was hard not to be impressed by the manner of his win. He didn’t make the cut for Cheltenham but he is a horse who remains with plenty of potential and is seemingly the pick of Paul Townend. It is also worth noting that connections won this race with Gold Cup winner Al Boum Photo in 2017. Doctor Bravo, who finished eighth in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, rates a big threat on form and seems sure to be on the premises.

15:45 – Hunters Yarn

HUNTERS YARN wasn’t able to provide Willie Mullins with another winner in the County Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival last time, but he remains a horse to view in a positive light. He was very progressive prior, easily winning a listed event at Navan in February, and he is strongly fancied to resume winning ways now back in novice company where he sets a good standard on form with the prospect of even more to come. Nucky Johnson could be the main danger in his bid for a hat-trick, with Hercule du Seuil completing the shortlist.

16:20 – Dinoblue

DINOBLUE has always been highly regarded and she had a bit in hand when making a winning start over fences at Cork in November and she progressed further when finishing runner-up on her next two starts up against some above-average mares. She attracted plenty of support on her handicap debut when again finding only one too good in the Grand Annual at the Cheltenham Festival last time, going through the contest with ease and finding only an improver too good on the day. That experience will have done her no harm and she looks the one to beat back against novices. Aarons Day shaped as if back in form in a Grade 3 last time and is interesting having a rare spin over this trip.

16:55 – Mighty Potter

MIGHTY POTTER was unable to meet expectations when only third in the Turners Novices’ Chase at the Cheltenham Festival last time, but he was one of the best seen in this division prior to that and he is well worth another chance. It was the second year in a row that he has disappointed at the Festival, but his record in Ireland is hard to argue with, and he is the one to beat on the pick of his form. Appreciate It also arrives on the back of a respectable run at the Festival and Sir Gerhard remains with potential but will need to jump better.

17:30 – Brighterdaysahead

BRIGHTERDAYSAHEAD comes from an excellent family and eased clear to make a winning start at Gowran last month in the style of a smart prospect. That form hasn’t really worked out as yet, but she should be able to defy a penalty now taking on the boys, despite the presence of some solid opposition in Grand Slam Sam and the selection’s stablemate Dee Capo, both of whom fetched plenty as store horses.
