912-2OR: 124
9/4

Has won both a maiden and a novices' hurdle this year, the latter at Hereford (2m3½f, good to firm) two starts ago. Held in a better race last time and now carries double penalty back at this level. Tough task, but can probably take home some money.

Well held in both a bumper and a maiden hurdle. Can only watch at present.

2/5

Improving novice who went close at Hexham (2m, soft) last time out. A repeat effort would give him decent claims at these weights, but may be capable of improvement now stepped up to this trip. Leading player.

711-2OR:

Well held in three novices' hurdles this time last year. Can only watch on his return from almost a year off.

611-2OR: 115
20/1

Soft ground bumper winner on debut last year, when with Philip Hobbs, for whom he also ran well in a Bangor maiden hurdle in April. Since changed hands for £12,000 and makes debut for this trainer. Market check advised.

611-2OR:
40/1

Promising effort in a bumper here (2m1f, good) last month. Plenty of stamina in his pedigree and is interesting starting out over hurdles at this trip. Should improve, but could also be a candidate here for his local trainer.

510-0OR:
100/1

Showed little in three bumpers and pulled up here on her hurdles debut when last seen in March. Longer trip could help, as may a tongue tie, but probably one to watch unless receiving market support.

Betting

Forecast

Informateur (2/5), Ilewin Geez (9/4), Mance Rayder (20/1), Toi Storey (40/1), Alice Lisle (100/1), Mah Mate Bob (100/1), Cross Of Steel (150/1)

Verdict

Ilewin Geez sets the standard and can go well, but a double penalty could be a crushing burden for him to shoulder and INFORMATEUR makes greater appeal now upped to this trip, after a good effort last time. Mance Rayder has previously shown ability and can't be ruled out if he is ready for this reappearance, while Toi Storey is another very interesting runner, now stepped up in trip for this hurdles debut.
