Verdict

Kolumbus was bitterly disappointing when a beaten favourite at Navan recently and he certainly has plenty to prove now while Soul Kaliber was well held in that same contest. Moroval is another who failed to fire last time but his previous form is strong, though maybe not as strong as GREAT KHAN's. The six-year-old ran in a bumper last time but his previous hurdles third to Kemboy leaves this bunch with a bit to find with him.

Verdict

GREAT KHAN disappointed in a Limerick bumper over Christmas, particularly given the promise he had shown on hurdling debut at that venue previously. He gets the narrow vote to get back on track following a break, with Kolumbus who is proving expensive to follow feared most, ahead of Udogo and Moroval.

Verdict

It is hard to get away from ICARIO who ran another perfectly good race when finishing third at Downpatrick recently. Gordon Elliott's charge has had a fair few chances now but he boasts easily the strongest form claims here and ought to take some stopping. Creative Talent has been a beaten favourite the last thrice now but he continues to knock hard on the door and should have his say again, along with Ciao Cielo.

Verdict

ICARIO has had plenty of goes, but never in a race as weak as this, so he's a fairly straightforward choice to get off the mark at the expense of Creative Talent, who promised more with the way he travelled last summer, and the once-raced Chubi Chekker.

Verdict

BOOK AT BEDTIME failed to show her best form at Newcastle last time but she had been going really well previously and is a fascinating contender now making her first start for Gordon Elliott. Recent Fairyhouse scorer Fridaynightlights represents the same stable and it will be interesting to see which way this pair go in the market. My Betty ran well for third here on her latest outing and is also respected, along with Veronica's Napkin.

Verdict

Competitive numerically but the case for FRIDAYNIGHTLIGHTS is fairly obvious following a much-improved showing on debut for Gordon Ellliott at Fairyhouse on Sunday. L'attesa was also better than ever when winning a big-field handicap last time and is second choice, with My Betty another to consider on her return.

Verdict

Prince Garyantle won his first star for Matthew Smith at Tramore in runaway fashion when last seen, but has been handed a 16lb rise for that, so it may be best to look elsewhere. Therefore, a chance is given to THEATRE WINE for the title chasing Gordon Elliott on his first attempt in handicap company with the first time blinkers sure to assist, and he looks the pick of the Cullentra House pair with his Monastic having more to do now. Supreme Steel is respected despite the 7lb rise for his Thurles victory last time while Scenic Star is considered now back hurdling having found fences not to his liking.

Verdict

Both PRINCE GARYANTLE and Supreme Steel repsonded really well to headgear last time and though the former wasn't found a race under a penalty, he may well find the improvement required from his revised mark. Scenic Star could be the pick of the rest.
