411-4OR:
9/1

Odds-on favourite when only fifth in a Newbury bumper, but showed her true colours when landing a Newton Abbot novice hurdle in June. Clearly talented and represents leading connections, but has a penalty to carry.

Filly by Mahler who was second on both starts in Irish point-to-points and was bought for £20,000 at Cheltenham sales in May. One to note on hurdling/stable debut.

510-12OR:

Irish point-to-point winner who fetched £12,500 at the Cheltenham sales. Hurdling bow and obviously has some ability.

610-12OR:

Winner of an Irish point-to-point in April, 2017. Last of six on hurdling debut at Uttoxeter the following month and has a lot to prove on her first outing since.

Filly by Jeremy who was successful in an Irish point-to-point in April and is from a successful jumping family. One to note in the betting on hurdling debut for strong team.

7/2

Odds-on winner of a Market Rasen bumper in March and was second in a much better contest at Cheltenham the following month. Reported to have schooled well for this hurdling bow.

610-12OR:

Kayf Tara mare who was having her first run for her strong stable when runner-up in a Taunton novice hurdle in February. Returns from a lay-off and looks the stable's number one on jockey bookings.

Stable companion of Festival Dawn who stepped up on a disappointing hurdling debut when runner-up at Worcester in May. Probably needs to find more in this company.

Little impact in two starts in bumpers and over hurdles, latterly in blinkers which are left off this time. Hard to fancy.

Court Cave mare who showed little in point-to-points, but fared with some promise on her hurdling debut at Newton Abbot in April. Should be able to take another step forward.

510-12OR: C
4/1

Bumper winner at this track on debut and ran with plenty of credit to be fourth in a Listed contest at Aintree in April. Boasts a good level of form ahead of this jumping debut.

510-12OR:

Warwick bumper winner who had Meep Meep behind when second in a hot contest at Aintree in April. Looks a leading player as she embarks on her hurdling career.

510-12OR:
7/2

Dual bumper winner, but finished behind a couple of these rivals at Aintree and may have been over the top. Will have been well prepared for this debut over timber and warrants respect.

510-12OR:

Successful in a Doncaster bumper in January, last year, but failed to back that up, including on final start last season after wind surgery. Early days for her and jumping may well suit.

410-12OR:

Not much to enthuse about in two bumpers and a novice hurdle. Pitched against some promising sorts in this and is likely to come up well short.

Fame And Glory filly who is a stable companion of Annie Mc and cost €25,000 as a yearling. She is a half-sister to a couple of winners, one of them over hurdles. Debut for strong yard, but faces some stiff opposition.

Betting

Forecast

Posh Trish (7/2), Definitelyanoscar (7/2), Meep Meep (4/1), Midnightreferendum (5/1), Festival Dawn (8/1), Empreinte Reconce (9/1), Beyondapproach (14/1), Annie Mc (20/1), Princess Roxy (20/1), Ziggy Rose (20/1), Hurlstone Point (50/1), Backintheoldtimes (66/1), Kilcara (80/1), Belmont Jewel (100/1), Kentford Mallard (100/1), Willow May (100/1)

Verdict

Empreinte Reconce will be the starting point for most punters after her winning debut over hurdles, but there are some strong jumping debutants ranged against her, headed by Definitelyanoscar, Meep Meep, Posh Trish and MIDNIGHTREFERENDUM. The selection was arguably the best of them in bumpers and can make a winning first appearance over timber. Festival Dawn and Beyondapproach are others to consider in what should be an informative contest.
