711-12OR: 127

Lightly raced over fences but took record to two from four latest when cruising to success in a three-runner race at Musselburgh (two finished). More competitive here and 5lb rise for that win makes life tougher.

511-11OR: 130D

Yet to win over fences but never worse than fourth apart from once where he fell. Fourth here last time out despite a last fence mistake over 2m1f a fair effort but unchanged handicap continues to look high enough.

511-11OR: 130BFD

French chase winner upset subsequent impressive winner Mister Fisher on stable debut over hurdles. Third on first chase start for this yard latest at Haydock a pleasing enough effort and every chance there's more to come.

811-9OR: 124

Exeter win last November his third over fences. Pulled up in only subsequent race last season and fell first time out this. Back on track latest when midfield at Ludlow despite a blunder two out but jumping remains concerning.

611-7OR: 122

Lightly raced former point-to-point and maiden hurdle winner ran a promising race first time up over fences latest when a close third of six at Wetherby despite errors at the last two fences. Drops back dramatically in trip but genuine claims.

1111-5OR: 120

Won twice last season but six unsuccessful races this campaign not suggested he is currently well handicapped ability wise even though he's some way behind last season's winning marks. Others less exposed and more appealing.

Verdict

ECU DE LA NOVERIE, a winner over fences in France earlier in his career has made a pleasing start for Philip Hobbs and already a hurdle winner for the yard he suggested he would soon be adding to that success over fences when a good third at Haydock latest. Blue Flight is similarly very unexposed over fences and filled the same spot as the selection last time over 3m at Wetherby so stamina is obviously his string suit. Wolfcatcher won easily last time but only two finished so gauging that form is not easy.
