510-12OR:
9/2

Had shown promise in bumpers without winning and against a solid effort recently when third on hurdles bow behind two speedy sorts. Should improve on that run and longer journey looks a plus now.

Improved effort on fourth start when easily landing a bumper here this month. Goes up in trip now switched to hurdles for the first time. Should be involved.

Runner-up at Southwell over similar trip three weeks ago on second hurdles start, not hard to see him involved for place money again and perhaps more if building on that experience.

Had shown promise in pair of bumpers before finding Champion Bumper at Cheltenham too hot in March. Makes hurdles bow here and should have a future in this sphere.

Finished midfield in a couple of novice events at Plumpton back in 2016 for Gary Moore and has won a couple of point-to-points since. Market may judge back under rules.

Unconvincing in bumpers and didn't improve for switch to hurdles last time at Wincanton, hard to place strong faith in for now.

Ex-Flat performer who shaped nicely on his yard/hurdles debut at Stratford earlier this month, should be able to build on that and has undergone wind surgery since.

King's Theatre gelding, related to a winner on Flat and half-brother to two winners, including fairly useful hurdler M M D Sizer, over jumps.

Modest maiden on Flat for Andrew Balding, not spotted under rules since 2015 and limited impact in point-to-points recently. Not hard to look elsewhere.

Two runs under rules have come over C&D, well beaten off in both of those, first in a seller and latterly maiden hurdle. Needs to improve sharply.

710-5OR: D
9/1

Dual point-to-point winner in 2017 and ran well to finish runner-up at Kempton (2m5f, good) on hurdles debut last month. Crashed out through wings of hurdle latest at Newton Abbot. Cautious approach now.

Forecast

Black Kalanisi (13/8), Doc Penfro (9/2), Balli Martine (9/2), Master Ring (5/1), Massini's Dream (9/1), Court Out (12/1), An Scairp (16/1), January Don (33/1), Minella Mojo (50/1), Why Lie (50/1), Jeffrey (50/1), Fearnie Lou (66/1), Perfect Legend (100/1)

Verdict

Black Kalanisi won a bumper with plenty to spare here recently and has rate a big danger now switching to this discipline but COURT OUT showed improved form for the step up to this trip when second at Southwell last time and might be able to make his hurdling experience count. Master Ring and Balli Martine, the latter going up in distance, are others worth noting.
  1. Court Out
  2. Balli Martine
