Fair hurdler. Respectable second of 14 in novice hurdle (9/2) at Limerick (21f, heavy) 3 days ago, running on late. Back down in trip. Stable having good spell. Sets a high standard.

Verdict

Strike Is Back is the obvious standard-setter following back-to-back second-placed finishes already this month, but she does appear to be vulnerable to an improver. JACOBS WELL was a useful Flat performer (he beat the subsequent Grade 1 runner-up Bunk Off Early at Navan back in 2015) and he was running consistently well in valuable heats on the level late last year. Beginningtogetup and Born To Size rates the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

STRIKE IS BACK has yet to win from 8 outings under Rules, but this looks to be an excellent opportunity for her to break her duck. Born To Size and Beginningtogetup are capable of better in this sphere and can chase the selection home.

Modest hurdler. Good second of 9 in bumper at this course (16f, heavy, 5/1) 19 days ago. Switches from bumpers to hurdles.

Verdict

MOROVAL was very disappointing when well beaten over 3m at Thurles last month but his two placed efforts prior to that make him the one to beat today. Hickey's Rock has shown promise but he may be one for handicaps in time, while Nicat's Benefit is worth a second look after a close second in bumper here a few weeks ago. Nanny Stone ran some nice races behind Presenting Percy and Sutton Manor earlier in the season and is another to note.

Verdict

Not easy to construct a compelling case for any of these, but NICAT'S BENEFIT has got her act together at this track in recent weeks, so could be the answer. Nanny Stone and Moroval are feared most.

100/1, tenth of 16 in novice chase at Limerick (17.4f, good to firm) on debut over fences. Off 8 months. Switches from chase to hurdles.

Verdict

ZIPPORAH arguably saves her best form for this track and she was an impressive winner here two starts ago. The 10-year-old then only found one too good in a similar event here a few weeks ago and she should remain competitive this afternoon. Wilms Warrior was running well in maiden hurdles last year and she starts life in handicap company from what should be a workable mark. Stay With It bounced back to form with a close second at Punchestown when last seen.

Verdict

STAY WITH IT gave way only to a progressive sort at Punchestown last month and he is taken to go one place better now despite a 4 lb rise. Zipporah and Wilms Warrior head the dangers.

Verdict

NO DICE looked like the winner for much of the way when last seen at Down Royal in January, making impressive headway to lead comfortably before a fall four fences out. He can claim compensation for Tony Martin here and could prove tough to stop in a race that won't take too much winning. Knockraha Boss was heavily supported in the betting two weeks ago but couldn't land the spoils and isn't easy to win with, while Logical Song has finished second on his last three starts but should be suited by a drop back to 2m.

Verdict

LOGICAL SONG transferred his recent improvement over hurdles when runner-up over fences here last month, finding only one too good. He again ran well over hurdles latest and gets the nod. No Dice and Knockraha Boss are next best, in that order.

Verdict

THE PAPARAZZI KID built on a promising return in the Leopardstown Chase, where he was hampered and unseated turning for home, when winning on Friday in a handicap at Wexford and looks a fairly solid option despite a quick turnaround. Knockraha Pylon arrives here in form having won a beginners' chase at Thurles earlier in the month and looks the main danger ahead of Val De Ferbet, who should be a lot happier back in a smaller field.

Verdict

THE PAPARRAZI KID looked as good as ever when winning at Wexford on Friday and is preferred to Mozoltov, who has disappointed so far this season.

One win from 26 NH runs. Eleven runs since last win in 2015. Creditable third of 12 in handicap chase (14/1) at Fairyhouse (21.4f, heavy) 45 days ago.

Verdict

DINNIE'S VINNIE bounced back to form at Thurles last month as he landed a similar contest when beating Flynsini, who reopposes here, by three lengths and, despite meeting that rival on worse terms, is entitled to improve again for that effort. Flynsini won't be too far away himself on that form as he effectively runs off the same mark as last time with recent Cheltenham Festival winning jockey J J Slevin on board, while others to consider include Larry Capri, who disappointed behind a subsequent winner at Navan in Mick The Jiver when sent off favourite at Naas last time, and Garrai Phaidin, who could improve for the application of a tongue-tie.

Verdict

LARRY CAPRI found less than looked likely on heavy ground at Naas last time but is taken to quickly resume winning ways. Soaring High and Garrai Phaidin are others to consider.

Verdict

MON ELDORADO finished down the field on his debut at Warwick for Paul Morgan behind the smart Le Breuil last May but has since moved over to Ireland to join Gordon Elliott, whose string are currently in tip top condition, and has a first-time hood to help him settle down. Imperial Way has finished behind some promising individuals on his last couple of starts so warrants respect with no horses of that calibre here, while Clitandre is clearly better than what he showed at Punchestown behind Oakley Hall and rates best of the remainder.

Verdict

CLITANDRE might have fluffed his lines on Rules debut, but this interesting recruit from points (shaped well on only start) is well worth another chance to show his true ability having been given a short break by his excellent handler since that initial disappointment. De Rasher Counter, who has plenty of experience between the flags, is the pick of the newcomers and Imperial Way is the form pick.
