511-10OR: 132BF
5/6

Impressive maiden hurdle winner at Fakenham (soft) over 2m4f in December. Disappointed at that same venue when only second subsequently and he is one for the shortlist in this contest.

611-4OR:
16/1

Point-to-point winner on yielding ground in May 2016 but absent for well over a year prior to finishing eighth in a Newbury (soft) bumper last month. Making his hurdling debut today.

911-4OR: WS

Point-to-point winner last April and followed up in a novice hunter chase the following month. Had a wind op since his latest outing and makes his debut for a new yard today.

511-4OR:
22/1

Signs of ability on the second of three hurdling starts in December but well held subsequently and likely to be of more interest once tackling handicaps.

611-4OR:
9/2

Ran well in three bumpers but well below that form on hurdles debut at Ludlow (2m5f, soft) last time out and probably best watched on this occasion.

711-4OR:
40/1

Pulled up on racecourse debut and beaten 50L in a maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) subsequently. Others make more appeal today.

Betting

Forecast

Rio Quinto (5/6), Victarion (9/2), Royal Tara (5/1), Louse Talk (8/1), Drovers Lane (16/1), Sartene's Son (22/1), Zebi Boy (40/1)

Verdict

RIO QUINTO sets the standard today and he shouldn't be inconvenienced by the drop in trip having won over 2m4f on hurdling debut. The selection has to defy a penalty today but can do that in the hands of the promising Fergus Gregory who can boast a 27% strike-rate (9/33) when teaming up with trainer Olly Murphy. Rules newcomer Louse Talk was a winner in the point-to-point field in Ireland and can claim second ahead of hunter chase victor Royal Tara who is making his first appearance over hurdles today.
