311-4OR: 131D
1/1

Won over hurdles in France. Ran well when pipped close home at Ludlow (2m, good) on his British debut last month. That looks strong form in context and he is probably the one to beat.

Not devoid of promise in both starts over hurdles, and can probably pick up a win, but my have to wait for other days.

310-12OR:
11/4

Dual Flat winner (1m2f/1m4f) in Ireland this year. Fell when weakening on hurdles debut at Ludlow. Better effort when 7½L third at Catterick last time. More needed, but going the right way and not written off.

310-12OR:
50/1

Won over 1m (soft) on the Flat at Wetherby in April. Raced freely on hurdles debut when beaten a distance. Best watched with stamina still to prove.

310-12OR:

Showed some promise on debut in a Huntingdon bumper, but below that level back there last time. Could do better now tackling obstacles, but probably one to watch first time up.

11/2

Has shown promise in two of his three hurdles starts, the best of which was his first attempt, which was on good ground. Can probably win races, but makes more appeal as an each-way prospect this time.

310-12OR:
7/1

Heavy ground 1m2f winner at Salisbury in April, when rated 75. Step back in right direction in that code at Redcar last time. Now tries hurdles (is half-brother to 2m chase/hurdle winner) and is worth noting in the market.

310-5OR:

Well held in both a bumper and a hurdle at Huntingdon recently and makes no appeal on that evidence.

Betting

Forecast

Song For Someone (1/1), For Pleasure (11/4), The Lincoln Lawyer (11/2), Westbrook Bertie (7/1), Banksy's Art (14/1), San Seb (20/1), Highland Bobby (50/1), Thunderhooves (66/1), Elusivevision (150/1)

Verdict

The form of SONG FOR SOMEONE's recent second at Ludlow looks the standout here and he is taken to go one better again this time. For Pleasure and Westbrook Bertie could be the opponents to give him most to do, while The Lincoln Laywer and Banksy's Art are not ruled out of the frame.
