910-12OR:
80/1

17-race point-to-point maiden, who is also unsurprisingly 0-4 under rules; has little conceivable chance.

Last RunWatch last race

510-12OR:
16/1

Kalanisi mare (cost €4,800 as a 3yo); never really looked sharp enough for bumpers (0-4), running her best race on debut here (Tapeta) in February; off hurdling at a realistic level for local owners Donna and Dave Armstrong.

510-12OR:
50/1

Shown no signs of ability in three runs in bumpers, including most latterly for this trainer at Aintree in October (125/1); makes her hurdles debut seeking a transformation.

510-12OR:
5/2

Easy 9L winner of a good ground Southwell bumper on debut in September 2017 and fairly highly tried thereafter; things haven't exactly gone as planned over hurdles so far, but the switch to a more galloping track (and cheekpieces) could suit.

610-12OR:
2/5

Progressed in four runs in bumpers, beating the now 105-rated Keep The River by a neck at Kelso (2m, good) in May; far from disgraced (fourth) over a similar trip on hurdles debut at Perth in September.

410-12OR:
20/1

With Stuart Crawford when finishing a distant third of four on debut in a Sedgefield bumper in March (heavy); sold for £5,000 last month and switches to hurdles wearing a newly applied hood on debut for Tim Reed.

Betting

Forecast

Rubytwo (2/5), Rococo Style (5/2), Donnas Dream (16/1), Terminal One (20/1), Inajiffy (50/1), Archview Sunshine (80/1)

Verdict

A very winnable mares' maiden hurdle, with the Nicky Richards-trained RUBYTWO seemingly only having Rococo Style as a realistic danger based upon NHF form. In making a respectable hurdles debut over a similar trip at Perth in September (beaten in excess of 13L), she's already achieved more over obstacles than the now cheekpieced Gollings-trained runner, so rates as a safer option at this stage of their respective racing careers.
