Shaped with significant promise in three maiden hurdles in spring 2022; not seen in this sphere again since and generally very disappointing on the Flat in the meantime but Bryony Frost is a good booking for this handicap hurdle debut; raced mainly on good ground.

0-17 on the Flat and was disappointing at Brighton last time but he's still unexposed over hurdles and was runner-up in a C&D maiden last spring; returns from a short break and he needs watching in market on handicap hurdle debut.

Last time's Uttoxeter handicap third (2m) was about the form equal of the summer's Bangor maiden success at nearer to 2m4f, for all she didn't settle; not evidently as much in hand of her mark as some of these.

Best run yet in handicaps when about a 10l fourth at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) but he did weaken late on and now goes up in distance; dangerous to underestimate his trainer's thinking but stamina has to be doubted.

Slightly disappointing at Exeter last week but his close third at Kelso (2m2f, good; first-time tongue-tie) two starts ago puts him in the picture here; probably best on good to firm/good ground; once ran well on soft on the Flat.

Verdict

Handicap debutantes Delgany Dreamer and Starlight Glance (preferred in that order) are both open to improvement but Bangor maiden winner ON CLOUD NINE ran a big race when third in a soft-ground handicap at Uttoxeter last month and gets the nod.[Chris Wilson]
