6/4

Has been showing potential in all four starts, breaking his duck at the third attempt at Warwick (2m, good) in October. Went well under penalty when stepped up to 2m4½f at Market Rasen (soft) last time and very much of interest on handicap debut.

20/1

Yet to get off the mark, but not far away from doing so at Newcastle (2m4½f, soft) in December and then on his handicap debut at Hereford (2m, soft) last time. 7lb rise for that last run looks a little harsh and this will be tougher.

0-17 under both codes, though has made the frame in all three starts over hurdles. Mark looks reasonably fair for handicap debut here and shouldn't mind the ground, but likely to need some improvement.

5/4

Shrugged off a moderate start to his hurdling career when scoring at Huntingdon (2m3½f, soft) and then adding an easy 15L win at Kempton (2m5f) from a 7lb higher mark last week. Back for more under a penalty here and 7lb now claimed. Leading player.

9/2

Best effort so far was over a similar trip at Chepstow in novices' company in December. Not a bad sighter on handicap debut at Ludlow (3m, soft) last time. Dropped 1lb here and potential for improvement, so not ruled out.

Betting

Forecast

Broken Quest (5/4), Herewego Herewego (6/4), The Sweeney (9/2), Snapdragon Fire (20/1), Roll Of The Dice (20/1), Trust The Man (33/1)

Verdict

Herewego Herewego has made a bright enough start to his career and with conditions and trip just about right for now, he is very interesting on his handicap debut and is entitled to plenty of respect. BROKEN QUEST did not face anything of his ability at Kempton last time, but the way he dispatched his field there was nonetheless impressive and with his 7lb rise negated by his claimer, he could be good enough to follow-up. The Sweeney is another of interest after a decent first handicap run and is not ruled out.
