1
611-0OR:
2/1

Supported on both bumper starts for this yard. Makes hurdling debut with the jockey booking suggesting a degree of confidence.

Last RunWatch last race
2
611-0OR:
10/11

Listed winner on the Flat in Germany and representing an in-form yard who have won the last two runnings of this with useful types.

Last RunWatch last race
3
511-0OR:
66/1

Down the field on both bumper starts and may have found himself in an above-average race for his hurdling debut.

Last RunWatch last race
4
611-0OR:
25/1

Scored at Newbury last season when springing a 50/1 shock. Makes a belated hurdling debut having been given a break since two uninspiring AW runs. Would not want conditions to dry out any further.

511-0OR:
10/1

Longstanding modest Flat maiden turns his attention to hurdling. Stable in form and champion jockey booked, but this is a tough introduction.

410-10OR: BF
15/2

Placed on the Flat in Ireland but well beaten on hurdling debut when sent off favourite. His pedigree dictates he will be much happier on a faster surface.

Last RunWatch last race

610-7OR:
100/1

Well beaten on both starts to date and highly tried on this occasion. Hard to fancy given current evidence.

Betting

Forecast

Fair Mountain (10/11), Ballinahinch (2/1), Take Em Out (6/1), Kings Inn (15/2), Yensir (10/1), Takbeer (25/1), Norm The Storm (66/1), Slice Of Lemon (100/1)

Verdict

Dan Skelton has taken the last two renewals of this with useful sorts and his German Listed winner FAIR MOUNTAIN is taken to make a successful transition to his new career. Ballinahinch and Kings Inn have come in for support for their new stables and represent bigger threats than perennial loser Yensir.
