311-5OR:
11/4

€120,000 yearling; ready winner of a 2m1f+ Vichy maiden hurdle (very soft) for Gabriel Leenders in September; has subsequently moved to England for high-profile owners, so is worthy of considerable respect despite the penalty.

311-5OR:
4/1

Alanadi gelding who was a narrow winner of a 2m1f soft-ground conditions hurdle at Nancy in April (for A.Boisbrunet); hooded for his UK debut for Messrs Munir and Souede; rates as a likely type despite the penalty.

311-0OR:
10/3

Carries the same racing silks as stable star Didtheyleaveuouttwo; dual Flat winner in France for Pascal Bary (1m3f-1m4f); handles soft ground but a complete unknown as to how he'll adapt to hurdling based upon his pedigree; market a helpful guide.

311-0OR:
7/2

Son of Fame And Glory; cost €45,000 as a 3yo; plugged on at the one-pace on debut in a Ludlow juvenile hurdle (2m, good) when finishing in excess of 7L third to the Alan King-trained Elysees.

311-0OR:
13/2

2-8 on the Flat in Italy for former handler Il Cavallo In Testa (both wins came over 1m2f at San Siro); half-brother to nine Flat winners (with quality); joined this trainer for €70,000 in July; mildly interesting hurdles newcomer.

311-0OR:
16/1

Placed in a 2m Class 6 AW handicap at Kempton just over a month ago and remains a six-race maiden on the Flat; makes his hurdling debut today but is surely well out of his depth against far more appealing rivals.

Betting

Forecast

Deniliquin (11/4), Belargus (10/3), Caswell Bay (7/2), Torpillo (4/1), Il Re Di Nessuno (13/2), Roudrapour (16/1)

Verdict

A potentially above average Introductory Juvenile Hurdle with high-profile owners represented by the French winners DENILIQUIN (McNeill Family) and Torpillo (Munir and Souede) and the market representing a handy guide to the hurdling newcomers Belargus (JP McManus) and Il Re Di Nessuno (Head and Dreher). The tentative advice at this stage is to side with the penalised Paul Nicholls-trained runner who will surely relish the forecast rain (8-10mm).
