711-12OR: 131
13/8

Arrives in great form after back-to-back novice wins. Carries a double penalty as a result, so more needed, but did win very easily last time, so may have the hat-trick in him.

5/2

Won an Ascot novices' handicap hurdle off a mark of 115 in November (2m3f, good). Unable to reproduce that form in two subsequent runs, but would be a major player if back to his best.

Won only start in a point-to-point and also on hurdles debut at Aintree in November (2m4f, good). Supported prior to respectable Grade 2 run at Sandown last time, when 18½L fourth (heavy). Should be competitive.

Was a maiden in Ireland, but won on his first start for this trainer at Lingfield in November (2m3½f, good to soft). Competitive effort in a Fontwell handicap last time, but needs to pull out a bit extra back in novices' company.

611-2OR:

Improved from being beaten joint favourite in his debut bumper to produce a more promising effort at Warwick last time. In good hands and looks bred to do better now switching to obstacles. Market check advised.

100/1

Showed some promise on debut in a Ludlow bumper (good) last May, but not able to build on that since, including on hurdles debut back there last month. Plenty to prove.

511-2OR:

Runner-up in an Irish point-to-point last May. Improved on his well held debut in a Carlisle bumper when 22L eighth on hurdles debut at Market Rasen in December, but will need much more than that to be competitive here.

Won a bumper here in December (soft) and matched that effort under a penalty last time. Should do better over further now going hurdling.

611-2OR:

Placed in a couple of Irish point-to-points but has shown little under rules so far. Should have a handicap mark to work with after this run, and will be of more interest then.

511-2OR:
16/1

Debut bumper winner at Hereford in November, before a respectable effort in Listed company next time. Beaten a long way out on Uttoxeter hurdles debut (2m, soft), but not one to be writing off yet.

610-9OR:
25/1

Went close on debut in an Irish bumper last April, before joining this trainer after changing hands for £30,000. Nibbled at in the market ahead of her British debut, but well held at Ludlow in December. Probably one to watch on hurdles introduction.

Seventh foal. Dam 1m3½f winning half-sister to 1m1f/1m2f winner Generous Diana, and bumper/2m3f and 2m4f hurdle winner Tokala. Probably one to watch first time out in tough company.

Filly who has shown little in a bumper and two novices' hurdles so far. Can only watch.

Betting

Forecast

Mill Green (13/8), New Quay (5/2), Quoi De Neuf (9/2), Rough Night (8/1), Allonok (16/1), Those Tiger Feet (16/1), Move Above (16/1), Miss Delighted (25/1), No Cruise Yet (33/1), Mr Palmtree (50/1), Vereina (66/1), Clondaw Storm (66/1), Camlad Kingfisher (100/1), Battlebrave (100/1)

Verdict

Those Tiger Feet has to bounce back from what was a disappointing hurdles debut, but he is in good hands and may be capable of doing so, while otherwise this looks like a race in which to be concentrating on the tried and tested top four horses on the racecard. The vote goes to MILL GREEN, despite a double penalty, after a very easy success again last time. New Quay could give him plenty to do if back to his best, but he has that to prove, while both Quoi De Neuf and Rough Night have to be respected.
