411-2OR:
40/1

Of limited ability on the Flat for Mark Johnston (1m-1m4f) and sold for £4,500 in December; half-brother to various winners including the Flat stayer Makana (1m4f/1m7f); significant improvement required on hurdles/stable bow.

411-2OR:
66/1

0-3 on the Flat for Mick Channon (7f-1m2f) and off the track since May 2018; with a new trainer now (also saddles Duba Plains); brother to the 2m hurdle winner PC Dixon (also in the care of this trainer).

411-2OR:
7/2

Rated in the 80's on the Flat and is a four-time winner from 19 starts (mainly over 1m4f); a relatively rare jumps runner for Mark Johnston and an obvious contender if handling the switch to hurdles at this lowly level.

411-2OR:
50/1

Longstanding Flat maiden for Mick Channon (0-14) and also has had a single run for Tristan Davidson; stablemate of Bow Street Runner; plenty to prove at this trip on hurdles debut.

411-2OR:
2/1

Placed in a couple of French bumpers (good to soft) and made a fair introduction over hurdles (stable debut) when beaten into third (11L) by Fabianski at Catterick in December; this race represents a reasonable next objective.

411-2OR:
2/1

Didn't kick on after winning on the Flat at Redcar in October 2017 (1m1f novice, soft). However, is rated in the low 80's in that discipline which makes him a leading player in this contest if handling the switch to hurdling.

410-9OR:
50/1

Hasn't shown up at all well over hurdles so far (0-2) so the jury is well and truly out as to how much ability she actually possesses; cheekpieces newly applied seeking a swift upturn in fortunes.

Last RunWatch last race

410-9OR:
9/2

Has demonstrated some ability here on the AW this winter (twice placed in modest 1m4f novice contests); novicey on hurdles debut at Doncaster (fifth) with the visor now added in order to provide her with more focus at her hurdles.

Betting

Forecast

Fanzio (2/1), I'm Improving (2/1), Dr Richard Kimble (7/2), Tomorrow's Angel (9/2), Baileys Artist (40/1), Sweet Marmalade (50/1), Duba Plains (50/1), Bow Street Runner (66/1)

Verdict

An unappealing contest. The hurdles debutantes I'm Improving and DR RICHARD KIMBLE stand out head and shoulders above the others on Flat form. The selection is a rare jumps runner for the Middleham-trainer Mark Johnston (1-7 since 2013), so is favoured with other viable alternatives very thin on the ground.
  1. Dr Richard Kimble
  2. I'm Improving
  3. Fanzio
