510-12OR:
40/1

Struggled in two novice hurdles so far most recently on good ground at Stratford a month ago. Others hold stronger claims.

50/1

Maiden after eight point-to-point and four Rules starts. Better effort on hurdling debut in August but probably best watched on debut for a new yard.

Placed in a bumper on good ground at Down Royal in May. Well beaten on debut for this yard in a similar race at Ffos Las (good-to-soft) last month and interesting to see how he fares on hurdling debut.

Winner on the Flat but stuggled in that sphere on his sole start of 2018. Wears a hood for the first time on stable and hurdles debut.

510-12OR:

Beaten 19L into sixth in a 2m Ludlow (good) bumper when debuting in May. Pulled up over hurdles at Stratford (2m6f, good) last month and wears a tongue tie for the first time on debut for this yard.

Won and placed in bumpers but disappointed when sixth at Worcester (2m, good) last month on his final bumper start. One for the shortlist on hurdles debut.

17 race maiden finished 16L sixth in a handicap hurdle at Fontwell (good) in August. More needed on his return from a break.

Finished fourth on his last two starts including when beaten 20L in a maiden hurdle at Wincanton (good-to-firm) last month. Represents a top yard and this step up in distance should suit.

Never a factor when finishing last of 11 in a soft ground Newbury bumper on debut in March. Others make more appeal.

Forecast

Southfield Torr (11/8), Represented (9/4), Khanisari (6/1), Serveontime (7/1), Ataguiseamix (8/1), Our Boy (10/1), Dora's Field (33/1), Demon Fou (40/1), Sum Fun Now (40/1), Game In The Park (50/1), Realt Or (50/1)

Verdict

REPRESENTED performed well in bumpers and he is taken to get off the mark at the first time of asking in this maiden hurdle. Southfield Torr ran well over shorter on hurdling debut last time and with the step up in trip in his favour he is taken to claim second ahead of Khanisari who can put a disappointing latest effort behind him to finish third.
