3/1

Showed little on the flat but quickly made up into a very smart hurdler winning first three before finishing second at Market Rasen. Back to winning ways since at Wetherby where he won really well so respected here with ground in his favour.

10/3

Heavy ground winner on final French start and made a pleasing GB/stable debut when second to Montestrel at Chepstow before readily winning as an odds-on chance should at Kempton. 4lb better off with rival now so possibilities here.

Showed little in two French starts but well backed and a ready winner on GB/stable debut at Huntingdon despite racing keenly and several mistakes. Sizable step up in class now but could go well if he brushes up his jumping.

9/4

Unfancied 20/1 chance but won on debut at Chepstow where he beat Quel Destin by 1½L receiving 9lb. Rival now 4lb better off so likely need to improve to confirm placings but every chance he can.

50/1

Maiden on the flat although useful enough to gain a 75 rating. 23L behind Katpoli at Huntingdon before gaining first success at Musselburgh latest. Up against it here and big improvement needed.

3/1

Hugely impressive winner of her lone French start at Compiegne in March before joining present connections. Starts season with high expectations as Triumph favourite for yard who won this last year with a filly. Can pass the test.

Betting

Forecast

Montestrel (9/4), Cracker Factory (3/1), Never Adapt (3/1), Quel Destin (10/3), Katpoli (12/1), Needs To Be Seen (50/1), Il Re Di Nessuno (50/1)

Verdict

NEVER ADAPT must have cost owner JP McManus a King's ransom and this filly can follow in the footsteps of Apples Shakira who won this race last year for Nicky Henderson whose record with juvenile hurdlers is unparalleled. Montestrel may prove the main danger having beaten smart performer and rival today Quel Destin on debut although that rival is now 4lb better off so must also be considered.
  1. Never Adapt

  3. Quel Destin
