Not a particularly deep race for its nature and the most likely winner is CAROLE ROSE, who seems destined to be a better chaser than hurdler judged on her second behind a decent subsequent winner at Down Royal. Simiel didn't hang about over hurdles despite some respectable maiden form and could be a greater threat than Macbride, who was worryingly poor in his latest maiden hurdle.[Alistair Whitehouse-Jones]

Ordinary level of form over hurdles but seemingly much improved for switch to fences last time when clear second to useful Duckweed (gone in again since) over 2m4f at Down Royal in May; respected with cheekpieces now fitted.

Three-time bumper winner but hard to call him progressive after heavy defeat in his latest maiden hurdle and the hood now returns for chasing debut; ability there to take all the beating but couldn't be all that confident; recent efforts at 2m but one of his bumper wins was at 2m3f.

Twice recorded RPRs of 106 in maiden hurdles on good ground and trainer evidently keen to get him chasing, with this only his sixth career start; no surprise to see him make a bold bid.

Won two of his dozen points and made an okay start over regulation fences, though beaten a distance the first time and then no match for an easy winner at Clonmel; probably vulnerable again.
