Paddy Power Novice Hurdle Guide

1. Chosen Mate

Trainer - Gordon Elliott

Jockey - Davy Russell

Fine progress as a novice until running into a good one in Sinoria at Punchestown two weeks ago.

Sinoria looks set to be a big player in the Mares Novice final at Cheltenham, whilst Chosen Mate looks to have several options ahead of him, and can boost his credentials with a solid effort here.

Won at Fairyhouse at good odds on stable debut, and a very likeable type to follow.

2. Jetez

Trainer - Jessica Harrington

Jockey - Robbie Power

Decent enough hurdler with plenty to like, but always seems to be touched off at the top level.

No win since landing his maiden on his sixth attempt over hurdles, he has gone onto finish runner-up here in a handicap, before second best in the Moscow Flyer at Punchestown.

Disappointing last time out, so much to improve on back up in grade.

3. Milan Native

Trainer - Gordon Elliott

Jockey - Jack Kennedy

One of two for Elliott - the only one in the field sporting the colours of Gigginstown, corrected her third on debut in a bumper with a smart win on hurdles bow last week.

He gets ready to go again after prevailing in a maiden at Navan, and he might have a special touch of class about him.

Dam was a bumper/2m4f hurdle winner, so surely this looks applicable for this growing 6yo.

Big player.

4. Political Policy

Trainer - Gavin Cromwell

Jockey - Ger Fox

Somewhat a comedy show in the real world, but the horse Political Policy is no laughing matter when it comes to the All-weather at Dundalk.

Competing at that venue on the last four occasions, this heavily campaigned 8yo makes the switch back to the turf and to the National Hunt sphere.

Great servant to the stable; winning on eleven occasions in all, but may be in a little too deep her.

Despite that, you cannot discount his determination.

5. Prince D'Aubrelle

Trainer - Willie Mullins

Jockey - Paul Townend

Aged nine year old, you can see from his record on the track that he has been inconsistent with absences - most of which through injury.

Connections were forced to be patient, and brought him back two weeks ago when he finished a lacklustre fifth behind Sinoria in the same Listed contest featuring Chosen Mate.

Legs are now back functioning fully and should come on from that runner.

Always highly thought of - especially with the patience invested, and the horse needs to reward them for it here.

6. Mc Alpine

Trainer - PJ Rothwell

Jockey - Danny Mullins

Just the one appearance - which came in a bumper two months ago, Mc Alpine will bid to get off the mark over hurdles at the first time of asking.

5yo son of Robin Des Champs was well adrift under Liam Quinlan at Limerick a few days after Christmas, and looks to have a mountain to climb in graded company over obstacles he has never jumped.

Hard to fancy.

7. Court Maid

Trainer - Thomas Mullins

Jockey - David Mullins

Fine rise up the ranks until something clearly a miss at Leopardstown three weeks ago, when finding little for pressure under the same jockey that is aboard today.

Completed a hat-trick of wins in a novice event at Cork five days into the new year, having previously scored well at Punchestown and Corck again.

Decent efforts in bumpers too, and now has a chance to get the tip-ex out and write over the events of last time.

Claims.

8. Hannon

Trainer - John C McConnell

Jockey - David Noonan

If commentator Jerry Hannon is at Naas on Sunday, I am sure he will have fun calling this one home!

This 4yo gelding has had just the two starts in total in his career - both over hurdles, where he began with a 33/1 second to Gordon Elliott's Smiling Eliza, before landing the gamble at Musselburgh against the useful Liva on New Years Day.

Short layoff since, and a definite contend in the outcome here.

Should make the cut.
