- MansionBet Novices' Hurdle (Class 4)
- 2m 2f 140y,
- 8 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Sent off just 9/1 for the Greatwood Hurdle when falling 2 out and no disgrace since when failing to concede 6lb to a decent type at Huntingdon. Penalty to give away again but sets the standard on form.
All out to win a minor chase in France last time and more on now switched back to hurdles on English debut.
Won a Bumper on heavy ground last April and may have bumped into a smart rival on hurdles bow at Carlisle last month (2m4f). More to come and the slight drop in trip shouldn't inconvenience.
Has run to a similar level of form in four bumpers and fair bit more needed today for switch to hurdling.
Nibbled at in market for Newton Abbot Bumper debut in May but tailed off 14th of 15 and makes little appeal now sent hurdling.
Has shown nothing for strong stable in a trio of novice hurdles over 2m and likely to show more when handicapping in due course.
65 rated maiden on the Flat and has been tailed off last of 3 and then unseated rider at the first in a couple of goes over hurdles. Easy to look elsewhere.
Won a 1m4f AW handicap at Newcastle on the Flat but has shown little over hurdles to date looking as though he needs to brush up on his jumping.
