7/2
Slightly patchy form in Irish maiden/novice hurdles but did manage to win one weak-looking maiden on heavy ground. Shouldn't have an issue with a sounder surface but needs to run a career best.

1/4
Easy winner of a Uttoxeter maiden hurdle last time out in the style of a very good horse, and in this small field should be tough to beat even under a penalty.

Won a few weak races on the Flat for Jim Bolger but only moderate form in novice/maiden hurdles so far and looks set for another minor role.

Down the field in three bumpers, though he didn't manage his best effort in the last of those three. Still needs plenty of improvement to get involved here on hurdling debut.

Betting

Forecast

Not That Fuisse (1/4), All Good Things (7/2), Orkan (16/1), Pirolo (33/1)

Verdict

Previous hurdles winner All Good Things and bumper performer Orkan can fill the places but this is all about NOT THAT FUISSE, who ran away with a Uttoxeter maiden hurdle last time out and shouldn't have any issue defying a penalty if running to anything like that level in this smaller field; he should be up to competing at a higher level in time.
