510-12OR:
100/1

Upped in trip after finishing down the field (seventh of 11) in a competitive novices' hurdle at Hexham (2m4f, soft) last month; significant progress is required.

710-12OR:
20/1

Left Irish handler Joseph Murphy for €21,000 in November 2018; best effort came when finishing strongly in a 1m6f Gowran Park maiden (second) in September; hurdles debut for new stable.

Not massively competitive in four starts so far for Nick Alexander (2m-2m3f soft/heavy); upped in trip with the tongue tie now applied; better ground could suit and preferred to stablemate Just Brooke.

9/1

Back from 13 months off the track with a fair showing at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) 22 days ago - runner-up has finished second since; likely pace angle at a track where he does have previous racing experience.

610-12OR:
50/1

Well beaten on hurdles debut at Ayr (2m4f, heavy) in November and rates as the type who needs considerably more time and experience.

3/1

Twice placed at this track over hurdles previously, including on his penultimate start (5/2f) in November (2m5f, good); possible ground excuses latest (heavy), albeit lacks much in the way of scope for further improvement.

610-12OR:
100/1

Modest in a trio of bumpers and fenced poorly throughout on chasing debut here earlier this month; no real surprise that he drops back to the smaller obstacles (debut), but doesn't make any appeal at this stage.

710-12OR: BFWS
13/8

Useful type in bumpers (3/4) and the clear form pick based on those efforts alone. However, has evidently had issues and has undergone wind surgery since beaten at short-odds on hurdles debut at Ayr (2m4f+, heavy) in November.

9/4

Irish PTP winner (3m, good); no match for Goldencard (Keith Dalgleish) here on hurdles debut (2m) in October but has progressed well since and ought to be on the premises.

510-12OR:
40/1

Broke his duck in PTP's when winning at Hexham (3m maiden, soft) earlier this month; has left the care of Chris Pimlott since and now competes under rules for the first time; market a guide.

910-5OR: 86
100/1

Stablemate of Eagle Ridge; makes little appeal based upon the level of form that she's shown so far (2m-2m4f); likely to need this race (off since May 2017) and would be more competitive in handicap company.

Forecast

Sam's Adventure (13/8), Thelongwayaround (9/4), Mighty Thunder (3/1), Flemens Story (9/1), Eagle Crag (20/1), Eagle Ridge (33/1), Uptown Harry (40/1), Fully Booked (50/1), Wataguddo (66/1), Captain Kurt (100/1), Just Brooke (100/1), Rocket Man Rodney (100/1)

Verdict

Both Thelongwayaround and Flemens Story have posted solid enough efforts over hurdles lately so ought to be competitive here, whilst Eagle Crag could be worth keeping a close eye upon on debut for Carrutherstown trainer Iain Jardine. However, SAM'S ADVENTURE was in a different parish to these rivals in bumpers (3-4) and assuming that he has been nursed back to anything like that level of performance by Brian Ellison should quickly resurrect his once promising racing career.
  1. Sam's Adventure
