Bell Ex One

11st 2lb

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Had plenty of runs on the Flat (winning twice, fair form) before picking up two early-season juvenile hurdles in Ireland last year; then joined these connections for £110,000; heart seems in the right place but there's limited evidence in his form under either code to suggest that he's well handicapped; new trainer, who has an excellent record in this race, fits blinkers (cheekpieces worked well on the Flat); appears to have no ground preferences.

Modest on Flat but much better over hurdles; wore cheekpieces last three outings (also tongue tied latest) and now it's a hood; has not added to hurdles debut win but subsequent form, even when soundly beaten in Grade 2 at Leopardstown on latest outing, suggests she is a player in today's context.
