611-7OR: 132BF
1/6

Sedgefield maiden winner (2m1f, soft); has shown a decent standard of form over hurdles so far and despite being beaten at short odds at Kelso (by his old foe Encore Champs) he shouldn't be knocked; sets the clear benchmark.

511-7OR: 113D
12/1

Irish raider; shock 66/1 winner of a 2m maiden hurdle at Roscommon (good) in October; mainly handicapping since without further success (0-5); stable have saddled winners at this track in the past; cautionary market check advised.

711-1OR:
13/2

Acquitted himself reasonably well in bumpers (placed on all four starts); struggled on hurdles debut (2m4f) but much better latest when finishing 3½L third to Romeo Brown (2m Kelso, good to soft); solid forecast option.

611-1OR:
250/1

Joined this trainer for a mere £600 in December 2018; started 250/1 in a 2m3f maiden hurdle at Catterick recently - saddle slipped and pulled up at the fourth flight; unappealing.

511-1OR:
50/1

Pulled up in both starts in PTP's; weakened as the race got going in earnest (keen early) on rules debut in an Ayr bumper (good to soft) 17-days ago; sent hurdling at a realistic level.

511-1OR:
40/1

Placed in a couple of Irish PTP's, including when beaten 12L by On My Wish List at Tinahely in November (3m, good); not fluent and soon beaten on hurdles/stable debut at Ayr (2m3f+) 17-days ago.

710-8OR:

Betting

Forecast

Lord Yeats (1/6), Big Bad Dream (13/2), Stander (12/1), Flaming Glory (40/1), Emirat De Catana (50/1), Sophie Fatale (66/1), Bobeska (250/1)

Verdict

Very difficult to see beyond LORD YEATS who has already shown a reasonable standard of form over hurdles and in truth appears to be head and shoulders above his six rivals. The seemingly all too obvious forecast option is the Donald Whillans-trained Big Bad Dream.
  1. Lord Yeats
  2. Big Bad Dream
  3. Stander
