Cost €64,000 as a three-year-old but all three runs over hurdles so far indicate that may be a bit expensive. Likely to make more of a splash once moving into handicaps after this.

7/2
Fair flat performer winning six times from 51 starts. All his best form came on a sound surface so conditions here for hurdles debut are no problem. Starts life for new yard today and market a good guide as to expectations.

6/5
Won a bumper here on Rules debut last May. Has gone close several times over hurdles without winning. Just collared late on at market Rasen last time. Sure to go well again and a first win over timber is imminent.

Point-to-point winner who has been off the track for over a year. Cheap purchase (£5,000) at the Ascot sales last summer and market a good guide on debut for this yard.

511-2OR:
14/1
Two starts so far and beaten a long way in both. Whilst improvement is certainly possible the chances are he will be more suited to handicaps on the back of this.

125/1
Well beaten in three bumpers and a novice hurdle over the space of three years. Clearly had problems having been off the track for 610 days and best watched on return.

7/4
Shaped with real promise on hurdling debut for this yard at Huntingdon (2m, good) when running on well for second. This trip should suit on that evidence and should put him right in the mix here.

Betting

Forecast

Holryale (6/5), Lion Rouge (7/4), Cotton Club (7/2), Major Davis (7/1), Springbok Seia (14/1), Best To Come (20/1), Celtic Style (33/1), Royal Chieftain (50/1), Teals Lad (125/1)

Verdict

Holryale sets the standard having gone close several times. Cotton Club is an interesting recruit to hurdling for a yard that do so well with his type. Celtic Style has the potential to do better but LION ROUGE shaped with loads of promise on hurdling debut and can take this on route to better things now tackling this longer trip.
