310-12OR: 119D
4/1

Won final start in Ireland impressively on heavy ground and won first two for this yard in similar fashion on sound surfaces. Step up in class here but certainly merits it and expected to make a bold bid.

310-12OR:
12/1

Maiden on the flat but useful (73 rated) and made a very encouraging start to his hurdles career when scoring by 6L at Fakenham. Now upped significantly in class and no experience of testing ground so that a worry.

310-12OR:
13/8

86-rated flat performer well fancied on hurdles debut but that couldn't detract from the performance as she won on the bridle by 16L. Very different ground now the only concern but looks a bright prospect so fancied to overcome it.

310-12OR:
5/1

Useful flat performer at up to 1m4f but yet to fire in two hurdle starts finishing a 40L ninth and 23L sixth. This much tougher and massive step up required to be competitive.

310-12OR:
40/1

Inferior to most of these on the flat and could only manage a 25L sixth on her hurdles bow last month. This much tougher so looks to have a mountain to climb.

310-12OR:
25/1

75-rated flat winner won once over 1m1f. Should prove a capable sort over hurdles but set a very stiff task on debut and hard to be confident.

310-12OR: 120
7/2

Already established herself a smart hurdler with two wins and three seconds in five starts. Impressive last time out at Punchestown suggesting she remains on the up so well worth a crack at this level but no form on soft ground.

310-12OR: 114
25/1

Moderate flat performer struggled in a contest at this level on hurdles debut but readily won next time out at Catterick in an easier race. Back up in class here however so makes only limited appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Giving Glances (13/8), Smiling Eliza (7/2), Chica Buena (4/1), Lady Camelot (5/1), Dance To Paris (12/1), Travel Lightly (25/1), Miss Mumtaz (25/1), Liffeydale Dreamer (40/1)

Verdict

GIVING GLANCES probably didn't beat much at Hereford but she could hardly have been more impressive and has to be the selection on the back of such a performance. Chica Buena arrives here on the back of a hat-trick and all ground seemingly comes alike so her claims are obvious. Smiling Eliza looks the best of the Irish raiders and will go close if handling this unfamiliar soft ground.
