411-0OR:
6/1

Signs of ability in a bumper and novice hurdle so far. Likely more needed stepping up in trip than when finishing 13L fifth at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last time.

Well held ninth of 11 in a bumper at Bangor (good) when debuting at the end of October. Probably best watched on his first start over hurdles.

411-0OR:
2/1

Winner on the Flat in France and stepped up on hurdling debut effort when 7L second over 3m at Southwell (good) last time out. Interesting contender dropping back in distance.

411-0OR:
16/1

Point-to-point winner on soft ground in May but has finished well beaten in two hurdles starts so far. Market support would be notable on this occasion.

610-7OR:
10/11

Point-to-point winner on good-to-firm going in January last year. Unseated rider mid-race on Rules debut over this trip at Newbury (soft) in January and is interesting for a top yard on seasonal debut.

Forecast

Loveherandleaveher (10/11), Reve (2/1), Chez Hans (6/1), Ballyfarsoon (6/1), Treasure Dillon (16/1), General Allenby (25/1), Heresthething (33/1), Pomme De Nuit (100/1)

Verdict

BALLYFARSOON has shown some decent form of late including in a novice hurdle last time and he is taken to get off the mark in this eight runner maiden hurdle. Point-to-point winner Loveherandleaveher failed to complete on Rules debut but she can put that behind her to claim second ahead of Reve who is dropping in distance following a placed effort over 3m last time.
