512-0OR: 134CD
5/2

Decisive winner of first two over hurdles before acquitting himself well in an Ascot Grade 2. Sets the standard but his double penalty leaves him vulnerable to a dark horse from one of the big yards.

Has finished last in two bumpers and hard to see eight flights of hurdles and a hood remedying the situation

Failed to complete the course in four point-to-points and he came home in his own time on bumper debut.

Has shown some ability in bumpers whilst looking one paced. Has undergone wind surgery during an eight month break and makes his hurdling debut in decent company.

511-2OR:
25/1

Bought for £58,000 after winning lone point-to-point back in May when clocking a good time. Has looked keen and green on both starts thus far, but has the ability to do better than those efforts indicate.

£38,000 3yo; first foal; dam closely related to 2m-2m7f chase winner Ballyegan; tongue-tied for debut; worthy of immense respect given owner/trainer combination.

Produced his best effort over C&D two weeks ago but he has a lot to find on official ratings.

Poor form in bumpers and novice hurdles. Tongue-tie tried for the first time but a lot more is going to be needed.

Tailed off last of nine on bumper debut and he has a long way to go before emulating his brother Claret Cloak.

Progressive sort who was runner-up at Hereford on stable debut. That form has been let down since and he has a lot more to find at this level.

Bought for £180,000 after finishing second to a Willie Mullins' filly in a Listed bumper three months ago. Sure to have been well schooled ahead of hurdles bow and receives a generous allowance.

Bought for £9,250 after winning a mares maiden at Lingstown in November. Recorded an unremarkable time and beat little so has her work cut out here.

Betting

Forecast

Elusive Belle (4/5), Thistle Do Nicely (5/2), Nineohtwooneoh (7/1), Kauto The King (14/1), Envole Toi (16/1), Whatsmeanttobe (20/1), Manofthemoment (25/1), Rowley Park (50/1), Win My Wings (50/1), Vinnie Rouge (100/1), Clondaw Whisper (200/1), Storm Fire (200/1), Big Bamboo (200/1)

Verdict

Thistle Do Nicely has achieved most in this lineup but picks up a double penalty and an official rating of 134 means he is vulnerable to anything of average ability. ELUSIVE BELLE receives 15lb before her rider's claim and this expensive purchase has joined a top yard since a bold effort in a Listed bumper. Nineohtwooneoh represents a yard that do well in these races here and the market will be informative.
