4/1
Bumper winner and broke his maiden over hurdles at the first attempt when winning at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last month. Couldn't follow-up under a penalty at Warwick last time but a player here once again.

Off the mark under rules at the 20th attempt when winning a maiden hurdle at Fakenham (2m, good) last time. Slightly more difficult under a penalty here but should go well once again.

Sent off at 66/1 for hurdles debut here 10 days ago. Jumped the first very slowly and was then pulled up when the saddle slipped early on. Hard to make a solid case for at present and handicaps maybe more suitable down the line.

Leading and looking set to win in last start in a point-to-point only to unseat his rider two out. Every chance he can translate some of that ability to hurdles and interesting to see what the market makes of him.

Is a head strong character that can pull hard. Sent off a well backed favourite at Huntingdon (2m, good) last time but was well held in second when falling at the last. Needs to settle and jump better but talent is there.

Four pretty lifeless efforts on the flat since joining this yard. Pulled up in a couple of point-to-points earlier in the year and very hard to construct a case for on rules debut over timber.

200/1 and beaten a vey long way in sole bumper effort in April. Others much preferred on first start over hurdles today.

Barely beaten a rival home in two starts over hurdles so far. Handicaps very much the better option on the back of this and readily passed over.

0/13 under all codes and hard to enthuse over chances having been beaten over 50L on hurdling debut almost two years ago. Could find this tough going once more.

Victorious on the Flat over 1m2f in France. Two starts over hurdles so far have been pretty poor and signs last time that this trip maybe a bit on the sharp side returning from a two month break.

Improved on the flat for switch to this yard. Been a little disappointing on his two runs over hurdles so far and likelihood is he will be more competitive once tackling handicaps on the back of this.,

Couldn't take advantage of much reduced flat mark at Bath on Saturday but had previously been running very well over hurdles. Receives weight all round here and a key player if back to her best.

Betting

Forecast

Hatcher (15/8), Yensir (85/40), Mick Maestro (4/1), Let's Sway (9/2), By Rail (33/1), Doyoumind (33/1), Compatriot (40/1), Sehayli (66/1), The Last Melon (100/1), Ladurelli (100/1), Reggie B (100/1), Bachy Baby (100/1)

Verdict

Not as competitive as the numbers suggest here. Let's Sway has improved since switching to her current yard and will be a player receiving weight all around here if able to bounce back from a poor run on the flat on Saturday. Hatcher clearly has ability but needs to settle better. Yensir has obvious claims having finally got off the mark last time but MICK MAESTRO can return to winning ways having not have everything go to plan at Warwick last time.
