610-12OR: WS
8/1

€70,000 purchase and a full-brother to Grand National winner Ballabriggs; early days in his career, but has offered only mild encouragement so far; back in trip after weakening at Sedgefield (2m4f) in March; had wind surgery.

510-12OR:
20/1

Stablemate of Ballasalla; half-brother to the French 2m and 2m1f hurdle winner Free Fields; 0-3 in Irish PTP's for Colin Bowe; stable debut.

510-12OR: BF
2/7

Hooded (retained) for rules and stable debut at Warwick (2m3f, good) in May, running well enough to finish 3½L second to the now 130-rated Minella Warrior; solid chance in this company.

410-12OR:
33/1

Low-key in bumpers (0-2) and probably needs both time and a trip to be seen to maximum effect over hurdles (brother to the 2m6f winner Shepherd's Bight); unlikely contender on timber bow.

510-12OR:
25/1

Rated in the 80's on the Flat for William Haggas in 2016, but slipped in the weights due to his inconsistent form for this trainer; not a likely type to make a winning hurdles debut.

410-12OR:
7/2

Cost €45,000 as a 3yo; improved effort on second start over hurdles on the outer track here (2m1f) in October when finishing 24L fourth to Good Boy Bobby (form solid).

610-12OR:
33/1

0-4 over hurdles in Ireland for Christian Delcros (2m3f-2m5f); will need to improve significantly in order to play any sort of positive role on debut for Sedgefield trainer Rebecca Menzies.

14/1

Former French racer for G.Cherel; 0-5 over hurdles/fences thus far; makes his GB debut after joining Tim Easterby for €7,500 from the Arqana Sale in July 2018; watching brief only.

Betting

Forecast

Clondaw Anchor (2/7), Highland Hunter (5/2), En Meme Temps (7/2), Ballasalla (8/1), Relkadam (14/1), Capmonfor (20/1), Dwight D (25/1), Court In Matera (33/1), Monsieur Bagot (33/1)

Verdict

Highland Hunter is an interesting hurdles newcomer for Lucinda Russell and he should prove capable of winning a couple of novice races during the course of the winter months, whilst the Tom Lacey-trained En Meme Temps could prove slightly better suited by the inner hurdles track after folding on the uphill run behind the useful Good Boy Bobby (form solid) in October. However, Dan Skelton is increasingly becoming a regular visitor to this track, and his CLONDAW ANCHOR sets the benchmark based upon a respectable rules debut second to the now 130-rated Minella Warrior at Warwick in May.
