511-1OR:
7/4

97-rated Flat performer in Ireland and made a promising debut over hurdles when 2L winner of a juvenile event at Newcastle earlier in the month. Potentially smart on that evidence and likely to be a leading contender here.

511-1OR: 132D
16/1

Improved in the summer to win races at Plumpton and Market Rasen and did well again last time when 4L runner-up in Wetherby Listed event. Takes another step up here and can give a good account, although will need to improve to win it.

510-12OR: 121D
25/1

Won a Ffos Las juvenile contest in October (2m, soft) but limitations exposed when beaten 22L into third at Cheltenham last time out in what was also a Grade 2 event. Needs a fair bit of improvement on that to beat a couple of these opponents.

510-12OR:
14/1

Rated 84 on the Flat where he won a Catterick handicap over 1m4f (good) in August and stays 1m6f. Half-brother to a 2m hurdle winner but this is a tough task on his hurdles debut.

510-12OR:
66/1

Made the frame in a couple of juvenile hurdles in France on soft ground but arrived on these shores as a maiden under both codes. Will therefore need plenty of improvement to win a race like this on his British debut.

510-12OR:
5/6

Showed some promise in France and delivered at the first time of asking in Britain when winning a big field juvenile event at Warwick easily by 10L. Had that race won a long way out and a repeat or better would make him very tough to beat.

Betting

Forecast

We Have A Dream (5/6), Act Of Valour (7/4), Je Suis Charlie (14/1), City Dreamer (16/1), Eragon De Chanay (25/1), Sommervieu (66/1)

Verdict

Act Of Valour made a very promising hurdles debut when scoring at Newcastle but there is no doubt that even more impressive visually was the win of WE HAVE A DREAM at Warwick and in receipt of 3lb from the Paul Nicholls-trained runner, he is taken to follow-up. John Quinn must think plenty of Je Suis Charlie to pitch him in at this level for his hurdling debut and it will be very interesting to see how he comes out of this and we know more about City Dreamer, who is respected but will need to improve to beat either of the leading players.
