Dual hurdles winner including on soft ground over an extended 2m3f at Wetherby in January. Pulled up on subsequent handicap debut over around this distance and interesting to see how he fares on chase debut.

Betting

Forecast

Steely Addition (10/3), Merry Milan (6/1), Yalltari (7/1), Book of Gold (7/1), Noble Robin (8/1), Flemcara (8/1), Kayf Blanco (10/1), Mount Rushmoore (10/1), Vodka All The Way (14/1), Holdbacktheriver (20/1), Louse Talk (25/1)

Verdict

STEELY ADDITION represents a yard with a 29% strike-rate (10/35) in recent weeks and he is taken to get off the mark at the second time of asking over fences in this novices' handicap. The selection has the trip and ground to suit and he can get the better of Yalltari who showed decent form in hurdles last season. Third place can go to Vodka All The Way, a stablemate of the selection who looks capable of going well dropping back in distance.
  1. Steely Addition
  2. Yalltari
  3. Vodka All The Way
