Form & Verdict

Improved to make winning Flat handicap debut off lowly mark in April (9.4f, AW); safely held on turf since but trainer Alan King is a dab hand with juvenile hurdlers and has a good strike-rate (5-13) with his occasional runners here.

T: John Dixon

Ordinary Flat performer who has taken well to hurdling, winning at Hexham in June (2m, good) on debut before finishing runner-up at Newton Abbot and in a handicap at Stratford; has since been bought out Alan King's yard for £9,000; quite interesting on first run for new yard.

Unplaced all four Flat starts; not beaten far when fourth of six on handicap debut in April (1m4f, AW; RPR 57) but others have stronger claims.

T: Ollie Pears

Flat maiden who was beaten off a lowly mark on the AW a month ago; however, she has four wins and four seconds to show for her nine runs over hurdles and chased home an Elliott hotpot in a good-ground Listed race at Doncaster in her latest jumps start; 7lb higher than for her handicap win earlier this season but that's warranted; good ground is ideal.

Form & Verdict

Third foal; brother to fair hurdler Tuddenham Green; dam 2m AW winner (RPR 58), half-sister to 1m4f Group 2 winner Horseplay and Flat/useful hurdle winner Devilment; in good hands but his five rivals all have experience from the Flat; market may guide.

J: Brian Hughes

Racecourse debut when finishing a fair third at Hexham two months ago (favourite); entitled to improve for that experience so should play a leading role assuming he handles likely softer ground.

Form & Verdict

Didn't live up to his very good Flat pedigree when with Godolphin but managed to win AW handicap in March (1m3f; RPR 69); changed hands for £16,000 soon afterwards and has travelled from South Wales to make hurdling debut for stable with 6-20 strike-rate here.

Signed off for John and Thady Gosden with low-grade AW win in March; about 11l behind Max Of Stars when last of four finishers on recent stable/hurdle debut at Hexham (2m, good) but positives can still be drawn from that performance; sports refitted tongue-tie and first-time visor.

J: Robert Havlin

T: John & Thady Gosden

Five-race maiden who is seemingly one of the yard's lesser lights, only fourth in low-grade handicap at Wolverhampton (9.5f; tongue-tie/blinkers fitted) when last seen; however, pedigree suggests this longer trip may squeeze improvement out of him; not dismissed.

Seemingly aided by first-time tongue-tie when making all to open account on the Flat last month (1m, AW; RPR 64); should be okay stamina-wise over hurdles; contender if he takes to this game.

Easy winner from the front over C&D this time last year for Paul Mulrennan; that came second time out and he's only 1lb higher but he'll need to do much better than on his recent comeback here.

Front-runner whose form can be mixed, but he made all here (1m) last May and has been a close second over today's C&D; capable of a bold bid if fully tuned up for his reappearance.
