711-9OR: 122D
10/3

Recorded a second straight hurdles win for this trainer (formerly with Dan Skelton) when making all to see off French Crusader by 3½L at Southwell in May (2m4f+ good); wind surgery has clearly suited; tougher assignment on chasing debut.

11/1

3-17 over hurdles (stays 2m4f on a flat track); form tailed off in the second half of last season, but is easing in the weights a fraction, so we'll wait and see what he's capable of over fences (debut) before judging.

7/1

His sole hurdles win came in a moderate race here (2m4f+) on Boxing Day, but was in contention when falling late in the race at Ayr (3m, good) in April; an obvious venue at which to make his chasing debut.

Runner up on both chasing starts at Southwell so far (albeit one of those races was a match); doesn't appear to be abundantly talented, but should win races eventually, and that experience is helpful.

12/1

Best effort for this trainer over hurdles came at this track in April (2m4f+) when a 9L runner up (50/1) to Jet Set; 1-4 in Irish point-to-points previously, so can be expected to win races over fences for much respected connections.

511-1OR: 114D
12/1

0-7 over hurdles, but solid when switched to fences by previous trainer Elizabeth Doyle, winning narrowly at Tipperary (2m4f, good) in July; reasonable opening handicap mark for debut on these shores; chance.

511-0OR: 113
9/2

0-4 over hurdles, but regularly placed at a lowly level (2m4f-2m5f+); beaten just under 10L in a Newton Abbot novices hurdle last month (third), and switches to fences for the first time with Brian Hughes in the saddle.

Betting

Forecast

Copper West (9/4), Earlshill (10/3), Heydour (9/2), Cloth Cap (7/1), Fixed Rate (11/1), Cloone Lady (12/1), Ri An Rian (12/1)

Verdict

An open looking race in which no strong opinion is formed. Earlshill is unbeaten in two starts for Stuart Edmunds, but it remains to be seen how he handles the switch to fences, comments which are applicable to a number of other runners including Fixed Rate and Cloth Cap. Therefore, a tentative vote goes to Laura Mongan's RI AN RIAN who has shown reasonable form over fences in Ireland for Liz Doyle.
