Formerly useful on the Flat, Downpatrick maiden winner PERCY has good prospects of getting Gordon Elliott back in the winning groove after the stable's brief hold-up. He takes a big drop in class following a Grade 2 run at Fairyhouse. The Granson and R'evelyn Pleasure may give the selection most to do. [Alan Sweetman]

Peaked at mark of 100 on Flat (sole win came on good-to-firm at two); got off mark on second hurdles start at Downpatrick (2m3f, soft) in March; struggled when 33-1 in Grade 2 event at Fairyhouse; obvious chance in a race of this standard.

Steady improvement in maidens; left clear two out for an easy win in an admittedly ordinary contest over a slightly longer trip at this venue in March; faded into fourth after a prominent showing on his handicap debut at Ballinrobe.

Placed form for Sandra Hughes in 2016 and doing well lately; made all for Limerick win in March, though was facing stern challenge until the favourite exited at the last; third in Kilbeggan conditions event last Friday and could reach the money again.

First of his three maiden runs was promising; confirmed fair standard of form when runner-up at Kilbeggan in first handicap; more needed here.

Unplaced in nine starts so far; fair fifth in a Kilbeggan handicap last Friday, but others seem much better suited by the race conditions.

Rewarded for consistent form in bumpers when winning well at Wexford last October; has failed to show a similar level of form over hurdles; hard to fancy against previous winners on the evidence of Monday's Killarney run, when beaten in excess of 20l in a maiden.
