411-12OR: 120
9/4

Won both hurdle races since switched to this trainer. Won despite his jumping by a short-head at Huntingdon before jumping much better and winning easily under penalty at Wincanton. Double penalty makes life tougher but sure to go well.

410-12OR:
33/1

Just the one flat race in France. Not beaten far into seventh there although slightly disappointing as favourite. Hard to gauge ability on that. Ought to have enough to win races but other flat recruits far more compelling here.

Only beat one home on debut in a Huntingdon bumper and was well beaten eighth at 100/1 latest behind Thounder. Impossible to fancy and merely another learning experience here.

410-12OR: D
4/5

Quickly developed into a smart performer on the flat this summer, winning three times from 1m4f to 2m2f. Switched to hurdles here and could be an exciting recruit. If he jumps well he will take a lot of beating.

410-12OR:
12/1

Won a 1m4f AW contest in 13 flat races. Outran 40/1 odds on hurdles debut here when third of nine. Never really involved there towards rear before passing beaten rivals so more needed here.

410-12OR:
6/1

Bumped into top-class Barney Roy on debut before an improved fourth over 1m at Haydock. Lone run this summer a disappointing eleventh at Windsor. Bit to prove on hurdles debut but joined leading trainer.

410-12OR:
150/1

Lowly rated maiden on the flat who has shown precious little in two starts over hurdles. Pulled up first time at Worcester before beating one home at Kempton. Hood added today but surprised if it sees him competitive.

410-12OR:
8/1

Dual winner on the flat including quite impressive win over 1m6f in October on heavy ground. Probably second best of these on the flat so hopes high for a good run on hurdles debut.

Forecast

Jukebox Jive (4/5), Thounder (9/4), Fields Of Fortune (4/1), Lisp (6/1), Quothquan (8/1), Ladofash (12/1), Acaro (33/1), Master Billie (150/1), Cloud Hopper (150/1)

Verdict

There won't be too many smarter flat performers than JUKEBOX JIVE switched to hurdling this winter. He showed plenty of class on the flat this summer and providing his jumping is adequate he will take an awful lot of beating here. Dual-winner Thounder may prove the sternest resistance and his experience should to some extent offset the double penalty. Quothquan is himself an interesting recruit to hurdling but is someway short of the selection on flat ratings.
