BOLD ENOUGH gets the vote. The son of Jeremy filled the runner-up spot behind the highly regarded Ballyadam in a Portrush point-to-point last autumn before being snapped up for 65,000 pounds at Cheltenham and then shaped well on his debut under rules in a 21-runner Naas maiden hurdle. The Henry de Bromhead-trained gelding was fourth to subsequent Grade 1 winner Asterion Forlonge and this looks a nice opportunity to open his account. The Shunter showed promise both in bumpers and over hurdles and, following a seven months break, now represents the Emmet Mullins yard. Gun Merchant, Ruinous, Goodbye Someday and Hesamanofhisword are others to consider.
Prediction : 1st Bold Enough 2nd The Shunter 3rd Gun Merchant

RECENT REVELATIONS was a decent sort in juvenile hurdles last season winning a Cork maiden in good style and running well twice behind stablemate Aramax including when fourth in the Boodles Juvenile Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham. He kept on up the hill after a mistake at the last in that Festival event giving hope that he can cope with this longer trip. Russian Diamond has done little wrong and the lightly-raced six-year-old rates an obvious threat. The Galway Festival bumper winner followed up on his hurdle debut at Down Royal last Christmas and lost little in defeat behind Aione subsequently at Naas. Barrington Court tends to be a bit in and out but is a useful sort on her day as evidenced by a runaway win in a Listed bumper at Navan plus success in a Punchestown maiden hurdle.
Prediction : 1st Recent Revelations 2nd Russian Diamond 3rd Barrington Court

The father and son team of Paul and Jack Gilligan went close with HENRY SELLERS at Limerick last week and may gain quick compensation here. The five-year-old gelding belied odds of 33/1 when tackling handicap company for the first time last Monday beating all bar Hello Pilgrim, and is entitled to go off a much shorter price on this occasion. Global Fert has run for a number of different yards but was a shade disappointing considering the very strong support at Roscommon last week. Gavin Cromwell was among the winners at Kilbeggan on Monday and has a strong hand here with riding arrangements suggesting Captain Courageous may prove the pick of his trio. Colin Bowe has his team in great form since the resumption of jump racing and any market move for the former Dan Skelton-trained Bourbon Borderline would be significant.
Prediction : 1st Henry Sellers 2nd Global Fert 3rd Captain Courageous

Despite his hefty twelve stone three impost LORD LARIAT could well be up to registering his second Tipperary success in five days. The five-year-old, from the in-form Karl Thornton yard, got eight pounds for his Friday afternoon win, and with a mandatory five here his chance is there for all to see. Three miles should be even better for Lord Lariat now, and if he takes the busy spell in his stride, the son of Golden Lariat looks well up to making it a quick double. You can build cases for plenty of them having enough ability to gain a place in the frame. The mares Eimear, Cushinstown Finest and Moll Dote catch the eye for place placers.
Prediction : 1st Lord Lariat 2nd Eimear 3rd Cushinstown Finest

For the Oriental Eagle connections, Pilbara could go well here. He makes his handicap debut up in trip off a break, and the five-year-old's movements in the betting will hopefully provide a guide. There are a few of them tried in new headgear, and in general with nothing looking overly solid, happenings in the market could be significant. Not So Simple and LILLY GEAL are two against the field, and the latter is just preferred. She only went down by half a length to Allduckornodinner at Wexford last September and is still operating from the right end of the weights. Going up to three miles might be the making of the Scorpion mare. Not So Simple is another that can find the stamina test to his liking. Going left-handed might well be another plus for the Kalanisi gelding.
Prediction : 1st Lilly Geal 2nd Pilbara 3rd Not So Simple

Grade Two-winning novice hurdler DOMMAGE POUR TOI might be able to win his first chase at the fifth time of asking. The selection is back from the Grade One company he kept when unseating behind Faugheen in the Flogas at the Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown. Dommage Pour Toi is rated five pounds inferior to I'm A Game Changer but that's hardly an insurmountable task. It's difficult to imagine I'm A Game Changer being anywhere else than bang there at the business end. However Dommage Pour Toi might just have the scope to progress more, and having started off in a point-to-point you'd imagine over the larger obstacles is where his true vocation always lay. Many of these are having their first taste of action over fences and it should be an informative heat all told.
Prediction : 1st Dommage Pour Toi 2nd Im A Game Changer 3rd Doctor Duffy

NOMANBEHIND was declared in error for a handicap hurdle at Kilbeggan on Monday evening. He now takes on an assignment over the larger obstacles on his debut for the Gavin Cromwell yard, and might be worthy of a little support. Carrying the Flemenstar colours of Stephen Curran, Nomanbehind has been fairly uninspiring in his efforts to date. However the Milan gelding has shown bits and pieces on occasion. Surely there will be a bounce from him, for joining the Champion Hurdle winning handler's string, and Jonathan Moore up for the initial occasion is no harm either. For a nine-year-old the selection hasn't got a huge amount of mileage on the clock. Better ground is probably good for him too. Another starting off for new connections, Give Him Time, is among the dangers, along with the likes of My Oakclahome, The Trigger and Daring Decree.
Prediction : 1st Nomanbehind 2nd Give Him Time 3rd My Oakclahome

Dual representation from three yards here as Sam Curling, Gordon Elliott and Henry de Bromhead get some of their youngsters on to the track. The newcomers would surely be favoured in a match bet against those that have run, and Elliott's debutant MR JACKMAN is given the nod. Jamie Codd is up to steer the Flemensfirth gelding and though there's a danger looking at his breeding that he could get out-speeded by sharper types at two miles around here, trust the Wexford man to employ his mount to best effect. Stable companion Papal Lodge could easily make his presence felt under Lisa O'Neill, and the market ought to be informative. If Second Subaltern can build on his Aintree fifth placing in November, he'll make an impression. Derek O'Connor is on the other Curling hope though, Laureldean Cross.
Prediction : 1st Mr Jackman 2nd Papal Lodge 3rd Second Subaltern
