611-5OR:
66/1

Similar level of ability in a pair of bumpers 11 months apart. Hurdling debut now and up in trip against some promising types.

100/1

Bit better on most recent run at the track but more on his plate and probably one for the handicaps further down the line.

Last RunWatch last race

40/1

Prolific in Point-to-points but got worked up before start on belated debut under rules recently and showed little. Needs to settle better.

First run since coming over from France where he showed very little and hard to be too positive unless the market shows otherwise.

711-5OR:
3/1

Lightly raced and while he has shown a lot of promise in two runs here (a Bumper and novice) has looked a hard ride hanging badly. Hopefully he can correct that trait but comes with a warning.

611-5OR:
300/1

No form in two runs over hurdles and Point-to-points and impossible to fancy on all evidence.

611-5OR:
20/1

Fetched €42,000 after landing a Point-to-point last April. Stepped up on hurdling debut after wind operation when third at Carlisle last month. Needs to improve again but that is likely and not without a chance.

711-5OR: 91

Poor form at big odds on all starts and impossible to fancy on what we've seen to date.

611-5OR:

Moderate in Point-to-points and tailed off on only start under rules so can't be reasonably fancied today.

711-5OR: BFC
9/4

Bumper winner last year and looked set to make score on second run over hurdles until running out at the last at Kelso last month. Clearly has ability but must come with risks attached after that.

Last RunWatch last race

611-5OR:
250/1

Showed nothing when tailed off last in a Kelso Bumper only start to date and easy to look elsewhere on hurdling bow.

611-5OR:
12/1

Dead heated on soft ground Point-to-Point last February. Beaten 22L on debut in Bumper but that winner is well regarded so interesting to see how he shapes on this hurdles debut.

Last RunWatch last race

811-5OR:
50/1

Cost £70,000 in April 2016 but has shown nothing since and off the course since 2017. Stable second string on jockey bookings.

Last RunWatch last race

611-5OR:
50/1

Has shown a modicum of ability but seems a long term prospect and seemingly best to look elsewhere today.

511-5OR:

Would have finished behind Sam's Adventure but for that one running out at Kelso last month but still showed plenty of ability and should be more to come. Each way claims.

710-12OR: 121
2/1

Took a big step forward when excellent third in Listed event at Haydock last month. No reason to think she is flattered by that and that form sets the standard back in maiden company.

Last RunWatch last race

810-12OR:
300/1

No promise when tailed off both hurdle runs here following a long absence and impossible to fancy.

Betting

Forecast

Off The Hook (2/1), Sam's Adventure (9/4), Glinger Flame (3/1), Stung For Cash (12/1), Lord Springfield (20/1), Uptown Harry (25/1), As The Crow Flies (40/1), Timesawaiting (50/1), Thomas Do (50/1), Exit To Where (66/1), Adelphi Prince (66/1), Asking For Answers (100/1), Oh No (200/1), Salven (250/1), Sixties Glenark (250/1), Golan Warrior (300/1), Robin De Plan (300/1)

Verdict

A decent contest for the track and the Haydock run last time by OFF THE HOOK stands well above the rest and she is expected to get her head in front. Glinger Flame and Sam's Adventure have both shaped with lots of ability but also wayward tendencies and it will be interesting to see if there are market positives for Stung For Cash on hurdling bow.
