Form & Verdict

Half-brother to useful hurdler Royal Bonsai; improved to cause 33-1 surprise in 17-runner Kempton bumper (soft) in March, his third start; possibly not seen to quite the same effect when fourth on good ground at Bangor the following month but still a likely contender on hurdling debut.

One of his autumn wins came over C&D (soft); however, no further progress and he came up short in a Class 3 handicap most recently; his form is well below the required standard at this top level.

J: Mr Jamie Neild

Disappointing at Exeter (2m2f, heavy) last month and hard to be confident on the back of that; however, he's of interest on his previous form, having won last autumn on his first two hurdle starts (2m5f/2m4f, good/soft) before a creditable showing in a Grade 2 at Sandown (2m4f, heavy; disputing second when final-fence faller); has potential off this handicap debut mark.

Joined Dan Skelton after showing improvement to finish third in an Irish point in March; raced too freely and made just a mildly encouraging rules debut when midfield in Newton Abbot bumper in July; will need to take a big step forward here.

Out of a French chase winner; displayed improvement to win Irish point on yielding ground in May and was bought for £20,000 soon afterwards; interesting to see how he fares on today's rules debut.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up in 3m Grade 1 at Aintree festival in April and now 0-9 over hurdles but has some useful form on his CV, including creditable third in Class 2 Exeter handicap (2m7f, good; first-time cheekpieces) in February; will be a tough nut to crack if somewhere near that level today.

Not one to set your clock by but he has flashes of good form and had one of his better days when beating three rivals at Taunton (3m, good to soft) three weeks ago; 2lb rise is nothing to get down about but this is appreciably tougher than that.

Half-brother to useful hurdler Judicial Law; quite promising debut when fifth of 18 in fairly good Ballinrobe maiden hurdle (2m, good) for Josh Halley in May; upped in trip for today's stable debut; needs to improve but has potential.
