By Beneficial out of a moderate racemare. Has been placed in point-to-point arena, but likely to find others too strong here.

Ask half-brother to fairly useful jumpers Kilronan High and Greyed A. He has won three of his six starts in point-to-points, and looks an interesting recruit to hurdling.

1/2

Bumper winner who improved on form of his hurdling debut when short-head second of 8 to Downtown Getaway in a 2m5½f novice at Ascot last time. Sets the standard, and should have more to offer, so high on the shortlist.

Moderate form to date in this arena, and returns to timber after falling on both chase outings. Makes no appeal.

60-0OR:

Placed in a couple of point-to-points in Ireland, but has shown very little in two starts under rules for new stable, and hard to make a case for him.

60-0OR:

Point winner who shaped well when third in a maiden hurdle at Haydock on debut. Below that form last time, but not unduly punished and should do better, albeit with handicaps perhaps a better medium after another outing.

Winner of a four-year-old maiden point-to-point cost £35,000 at auction subsequently. Close second and going well enough when unseating on rules bow in Kempton novice (3m½f, good) last month, and ought to build on that.

Bought for £80,000 last spring after winning a soft ground Irish point-to-point. Made a promising start over timber when placed at Aintree and Warwick in November, and has had wind surgery since disappointing at Wetherby last month. Tongue tied now.

€55,000 purchase by Shirocco who has shown some ability in a bumper at Ascot and over hurdles at Leicester, but no threat on either occasion, and may need more time.

Related to a couple of useful sorts, but he has shown very little in a pair of bumpers so far, and can't be entertained on that basis.

Runner-up in a Uttoxeter bumper in December, and shaped quite well when sixth of 17 to Off The Hook in maiden at Ayr on hurdling debut. Will do better down the line.

Winner of a British point-to-point on debut, and made a promising start when the only one to lay a glove on Getaway Trump at Plumpton on Rules bow. Disappointed last time, but too early to write him off given debut promise.

Finished alone when winning a point-to-point at the fourth attempt, and this cheap purchase will do well to get involved making her debut under Rules.

Showed plenty on her bumper debut at Bangor, but has gone the wrong way in three starts since, and pulled up trying hurdles for the first time at Warwick in December. Hood reached for now.

Betting

Forecast

Champagne Well (1/2), Redzor (4/1), Talktomenow (11/2), Mister Tickle (8/1), Stung For Cash (12/1), Halloween Harry (12/1), Blue Monday (33/1), Roccowithlove (33/1), Broadclyst (40/1), Family Man (50/1), Teme Spirit (66/1), Tanrudy (66/1), Dina Maker (100/1), Debacle (100/1), Seymour Sox (150/1), Highland Way (200/1), Worthy Farm (N/A), Winter Soldier (N/A), Trevelyn's Corn (N/A), The Cashel Man (N/A), Stop The World (N/A), Plenty Of Butty (N/A), Mr Palmtree (N/A), Jammy George (N/A), Hahadi (N/A), Faithfulness (N/A), Chinensis (N/A)

Verdict

CHAMPAGNE WELL built on debut promise when just denied by Downtown Getaway at Ascot last time, and should be too good for Talktomenow even if that one bounces back to the form which saw him chase home Getaway Trump at Plumpton. Redzor disappointed last time, but could easily bounce back after wind surgery, and can't be ruled out.
