It's evening jumps action at Kilbeggan
It's evening jumps action at Kilbeggan

Monday's evening card from Kilbeggan comes under Timeform's inspection.

"...Cassells Rock gets the nod having showed up well at Tipperary last time."

He wouldn't be one for the mortgage after 19 defeats over hurdles but Spot Fine has done little wrong here the last twice and this could finally be his day, the opening maiden hurdle (18:00) looking to represent a good opportunity for him. Dancing Roe looks the biggest threat if ready to go on his return from eight months off, which in itself speaks for Spot Fine's form claims.

Another maiden follows (18:30), in which Cassells Rock gets the nod having showed up well at Tipperary last time. Poetic Lord could still progress over hurdles having chased home the very promising stablemate of the selection Cillian's Return first time up over hurdles, while Sizing Venezuela may leave his bumper debut behind now tackling jumps.

Indian Icon remains in good form over hurdles and can follow up last month's overdue maiden hurdle success here in the two-mile handicap hurdle at 19:00. Never A Secret could go well, while Top Spin is worth a look in the betting back from an absence.
