Well-bred gelding who left Sam Thomas for only £7,000 despite showing promise in two bumpers; only 11-4 for his stable/hurdling debut at Sedgefield and he won well, going away at the finish; the third won there earlier this week; looks to have a strong chance despite his penalty.

Won on hurdle debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) in November and was respectable fourth over 2m4f there on next outing but last month's handicap debut was underwhelming and he's only 1lb lower for this drop back in trip.

The two bumpers and a Kempton maiden hurdle he's contested were won by useful horses and this would be his most realistic assignment yet, following wind surgery; appeals most.

Failed to win over hurdles, although shaped well on a few occasions; got off the mark on chase debut when a 13l-winner of a Market Rasen novice handicap (3m, soft) last month; went up 9lb for that, but the form is solid (third and fourth have won since) and he looks the one to beat.

Verdict

Thank You Blue had his Sedgefield form franked this week but he may struggle to concede a penalty to JEMURA who has been running in races dominated by good horses. Others have shown promise but they now have some questions to answer.[Alistair Jones]
