Disappointing in bumpers for this yard and lots to prove on hurdle debut; however, he won a bumper for Donald Whillans in October 2021 and it's possible the wind op he's had since his last run will have a dramatic effect.

Tailed off in bumpers the last twice and is hard to make a case for, but it's possible she was unsuited by good to firm then heavy ground; before those she didn't run badly on her debut at Hexham (2m, good to soft), when badly hampered, and an each-way return isn't out of the question.

Verdict

The Ann Hamilton-trained DARE TO SHOUT won in good style at Kelso last month and can follow up. The mare Miss Lamb is the stand-out danger. Point winner Wearelongterm is next on the list, with fellow hurdling newcomer Lunar Flow another each-way possible.[Ben Hutton]
