511-2OR:
14/1

Showed improved form when winning on her second start over hurdles at Towcester (1m7½f, good to firm) last month. Still a little green there with plenty of room for improvement and is very much respected here under a penalty.

510-10OR:
12/1

Minor improvement from first to second start over hurdles. Ultimately still beaten a long way at Huntingdon last time and more is needed. Handicaps will suit on the back of this.

Big prices and beaten a long way on all starts to date over hurdles. Very hard to enthuse over chances and a similar story is on the cards here.

510-10OR:
100/1

40/1 for hurdling debut at Exeter (2m1f, good) last month but jumped right and slowly on several occasions. That is a worry here going left-handed but blinkers go on in an attempt to straighten her up.

510-10OR:
50/1

Well beaten in a couple of point-to-points this year. Bought for £3,000 afterwards and starts life under rules for her new yard today. Chances are she will need further and fences to be seen to best effect.

510-10OR:
50/1

Hard to enthuse over what we have seen so far having been beaten a long way at Huntingdon (2m, good) in April. Moved from Charlie Longsdon to Mark Gillard but needs change of scenery to bring about plenty of improvement.

5/6

Gone close in handicap company the last twice and seemed to improve for the application of the cheekpieces last time. That is strong form dropping back into novice company and she should be pretty tough to beat.

610-10OR:
18/1

Improved on her first outing in bumpers when finishing seventh of 17 at Wincanton (1m7½f, good) last time. Tongue-tie goes on and Richard Johnson keeps the faith for hurdling debut today and no surprise if she is to improve again.

410-7OR:

Poor flat performer who was beaten a very long way on sole hurdles start last year. This is her second run after having wind surgery but was beaten 25L on the flat last time and best watched here.

7/4

Winner of her sole start in France in April last year. She was sent off odds-on for her UK debut at Newbury (1m4½f, soft) back in December but was well beaten. Clearly capable of better and a fascinating recruit recruit to hurdles for powerful team

Three starts for this yard on the flat have been fairly average. has had the tendency to be pretty keen in her races and will need to learn to settle better over hurdles. Yard do well with this type and interesting to see what the market makes of her

Average maiden on the flat and was beaten a very long way on hurdling debut here 11 days ago. Much more needed to be involved and others preferred

Betting

Forecast

Passing Call (5/6), Empreinte Reconce (7/4), Firmage Burg (10/1), Admiral's Sunset (12/1), Passing Dream (14/1), Port Royale (18/1), Kilcara (50/1), No No Legend (50/1), Cecilator (66/1), Kentford Mallard (100/1), Lamh Ar Lamh (100/1), Gloi (150/1)

Verdict

Passing Dream won well at Towcester last month and has improvement in her. Passing Call has run well without winning in all her starts so far and brings decent handicap form back into a novice event here so should be tough to beat. The drum was very much beating about EMPREINTE RECONCE on her British bumper debut and despite bombing out there, she brings significant potential for her hurdling debut here and is taken to get off the mark at the first attempt,
  1. Empreinte Reconce
  2. Passing Call
  3. Passing Dream
