Wendigo

11st 9lb

J: Gavin Sheehan

T: Jamie Snowden

Had Magical Hill back in third when winning his Irish maiden point (good to yielding) and then sold on for £70,000; finished third at Worcester (behind respected opposition) before beating three rivals in a slowly run race at Hexham (heavy); going the right way.

Rickety Bridge

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

British maiden point winner (3m, soft) who also showed promise in the autumn on his first two bumper starts (2m, good to soft/soft); below par in Wincanton bumper (1m7f, good to soft) in January but retains potential, especially now up in trip on hurdle debut (from family of Big Buck's).

Just a respectable third of six on bumper debut at Chepstow and then beaten much further there; not the obvious answer to this on hurdle debut.

Sister to useful bumper winner Fingle Bridge; despite showing abundant inexperience she shaped okay to be an 18l third at Wetherby (soft) and the winner of that race has since followed up at Newbury; also interesting that she was only 100-30 that day so wasn't unfancied.

Verdict

This could be a good opportunity for RICKETY BRIDGE who had Wendigo behind at Worcester in October and has since improved to finish fourth in a Listed race at Cheltenham. Wendigo could be his main threat, though there was a lot to like about how The Cypriot saw his debut race out at Chepstow.[Alistair Jones]
