Placed over an extended 2m3f at Huntingdon (good) on his penultimate start. Held a 2L advantage when unseating at Chepstow recently and a bold show looks likely.

Forecast

Tidal Flow (5/4), Before Midnight (15/8), Kootenay River (4/1), Little Miss Darsi (16/1), Old Rascals (28/1), Black Lightning (33/1), Ratfacemcdougall (50/1), Noble Quest (50/1), Wings of Darkness (66/1), Glorious Boru (80/1), Tractor Fred (100/1), Uncle O (100/1)

Verdict

BEFORE MIDNIGHT is taken to put his unseat at Chepstow last time out behind him by taking this competitive novice hurdle. The selection looked a likely winner that day and can see off Kootenay River who showed up well in a couple of bumpers in the spring. Third place can go the way of Tidal Flow who can take third on hurdling debut.
