Bumper winner and hurdling debutant Vinnie Is Busy seems a good shout for the opening maiden hurdle. Having won at Limerick in January he was thrown in against some high quality opposition at Naas next time out where he was soundly beaten by the likes of Farouk D’alene and Fire Attack. He is pitched in here in what could be a very winnable maiden hurdle against some solid if not spectacular opposition. Providing he takes to hurdles he can get our lucky 15 off to a winning start.
The Very Man has some strong form with a good second to Willie Mullins’ Francin who has since gone on to beat some solid horses at Navan. However, it may be worth taking a chance on another Gordon Elliott runner in Road to Dubai. He comes here off a six month break having scored in a Class 4 at Perth in September. It is his form before that which is very much of interest though. At this track he went off as favourite in a race won by Champion Hurdle third Darver Star who also ran Mares Hurdle winner Honeysuckle close in the Irish Champion Hurdle. His start before that he was not far off horses who went on to contest the same grade one novice (won by Envoi Allen) so he clearly has a bit about him. With running fresh not an issue he seems a decent enough price at the 10/1 available in places.
After a few disappointing runs for Joseph O’Brien, Severus Alexander seems to have benefited from a change of scenery after a good debut for Gavin Cromwell when fourth at Leopardstown. Running off 10st9lb may underestimate him slightly and the addition of J B Kane’s 5lb claim is an added bonus. Should he continue his improvement for his new yard here he should be able to hit the frame and at a best price of 7/1 this four-year-old is our pick.
In a field containing some ageing horses it may be worth siding with one who still has room for improvement and six year old Jimmil could well have plenty of that in him still after only six runs. It has taken a few runs for him to find his feet but he got off the mark last time out with a five and a half length victory over odds on favourite Treacysenniscorthy. He has been raised a stone for that but that may not be enough to stop him should he continue his upward trajectory.
