FENNELL BAY did very well on the Flat winning eight races in 41 starts. He's joined a yard very adept at getting the best out of similar types and can make a successful hurdling debut. Downtown Boy enjoyed stepping up to this sort of trip at Sedgefield when runner-up to Heath Hunter and should make further progress. Forthefunofit started favourite on his bumper debut at Southwell but couldn't quite get to No No Romeo then started odds-on when runner-up at Uttoxeter where he pulled hard. He's certain to improve over hurdles and looks a threat. Nexius had winning form on the Flat in Germany and was placed in Listed company during the summer so he's definitely one to keep an eye on.
