510-12OR: CD
10/1

Promise in Taunton bumper before stepping up on that effort to score easily at this track in May. One to keep a close eye on as he makes his hurdling debut.

510-12OR: CD
4/6

Landed a Listed bumper at Cheltenham in 2017, but was tailed off in the Festival version in March. Top stable was not firing at that time, but is in good form now and he looks a major player on his hurdling debut.

610-12OR:
7/1

Huntingdon bumper winner in 2016, but only hurdles outing in January of last year saw him finish in mid-division at the same venue. Long absence to overcome and is probably best watched.

10/1

Placed three times in five hurdle races, including when third of 12 when last seen in action at Fontwell in May. Has experience on his side, but faces some promising hurdling newcomers.

410-12OR:
7/2

Looked a horse to follow when landing his only bumper at Ludlow in March. Well regarded and has to be respected as he makes his first appearance over timber.

410-12OR:
100/1

Irish import who has run in two point-to-points and a maiden hurdle, showing a little promise in the first two outings. Seems to have some ability, but is up against it against some well-regarded rivals.

610-12OR: D
20/1

Not much to shout about in bumpers at Exeter and Ffos Las in the spring, but did win in that sphere in January. Hurdling debut for a top yard starting to hit form.

510-5OR:

Mare by Ask who is a half-sister to 3m hurdle winner Quickasyoucan. Unplaced in four point-to-points and can only be watched on debut under rules.

510-5OR:

Little show in point-to-points and under rules. Faces stiff opposition and is likely to be one of the outsiders.

Betting

Forecast

Crooks Peak (4/6), Rouge Vif (7/2), Glen Forsa (7/1), Colonel Custard (10/1), It's Got Legs (10/1), Summit Like Herbie (20/1), Getadollar (100/1), Strictlyadancer (100/1), Ask Launa Esme (250/1)

Verdict

It's Got Legs brings some hurdling form and experience to the table, but faces several promising hurdling debutants headed by CROOKS PEAK, who was last seen finishing down the field in the Cheltenham Festival bumper. His earlier form entitles him to maximum respect and he is taken to see off the challenges of other well-regarded sorts in Rouge Vif and Colonel Custard. Glen Forsa and Summit Like Herbie are worth a check in the betting.
