50/1

Twice a winner on the Flat but struggled in that sphere so far this year. Probably best watched on hurdling debut.

511-4OR:
100/1

Well beaten on both starts over hurdles so far. Beaten 33L on good ground at Kilbeggan last time out and others make more appeal on his return from a break.

511-4OR:
3/1

Making his debut for this yard when beaten a head at Kilbeggan (2m, good) last month. Looks likely to play a leading role on this occasion.

Fair form over hurdles so far and beaten 15L in a soft ground bumper at Galway recently. Interesting runner in this contest.

611-4OR:
9/1

Ran well in three starts over hurdles last year but absent since finishing 24L third at Kilbeggan (good-to-yielding) last August. Interesting runner on his return from an absence.

411-1OR:
4/9

Placed twice from three starts in bumpers in France last year. Finished runner-up behind a useful hurdler/chaser at Moulins (1m4f, good-to-soft) on his most recent start and is likely to prove hard to beat on debut for a top yard.

Betting

Forecast

Epswell (4/9), Melly And Me (3/1), Unchago (9/1), Ozzie's Way (16/1), Masterofdiscovery (50/1), Makeyourcall (100/1)

Verdict

EPSWELL can make a winning hurdling debut by taking this small field maiden contest. The selection showed good form in France last year and can get the better of Melly And Me who was narrowly beaten last time out. Unchago showed promise last year and he can finish third on his return.
