14/1

Good bumper performer who was two from three in that sphere. Shaped with promise on hurdling debut back in February but was beaten a long way on return to action when going up to 2m4½f at Market Rasen last time. Tongue-tie now goes on.

Placed in a couple of point-to-points in Ireland but was beaten a long way on hurdling debut at Market Rasen in the summer. Returns from almost five months off and will need to improve on that first showing.

Son of Robin Des Champs bought for €45,000 at the sales in June last year. Shown ability in two bumper starts and will be a player here if transferring that ability to hurdles.

Minor promise on two starts in bumpers, particularly on debut at Market Rasen. Needs to improve on those efforts now tackling hurdles.

Only minor promise in three bumper starts but looks the type to show a bit more now he has something to jump. Has had wind surgery since last run and returns from a six-month break.

8/1

Won a 1m2f maiden on the flat at Goodwood back in September 2017. Has been off the track now for well over a year and starts life with a new yard for hurdling campaign. Market check needed.

Half-brother to Wait For Me made a successful bumper debut before heading off to the Punchestown Festival. Sent off evens favourite for hurdling debut at Ludlow three weeks ago but jumping was a little sloppy. Should have learnt plenty there.

4/1

Decent flat perfromer on his day but has yet to strike over hurdles in four attempts. Peak of his efforts just about set the standard for the others to aim at so sure to be in the mix once more.

Pretty inconsistent in points and only managed one win in 10 starts in that sphere. Starts out for new yard today and makes rules debut having been off a long time. Tough ask.

Betting

Forecast

That's A Given (1/1), Ferrobin (3/1), William Hunter (4/1), Esprit De Baileys (7/1), Red Royalist (8/1), Brecon Hill (14/1), Monk's View (28/1), Midnight Sonata (50/1), Cavalry Scout (100/1), Quizzacle Nomad (150/1)

Verdict

That's a Given disappointing on his hurdling debut at Ludlow a couple of weeks ago but should be up to winning one of these if jumping a little better. Esprit De Baileys is an interesting recruit to hurdling having won upto 1m4f on the flat on a variety of ground. Today could be the day that William Hunter gets off the mark over hurdles. He sets the standard to aim at here and there is a good chance his experience may stand him in good stead in this lineup.
