611-2OR:
50/1

Trainer paid £30,000 for his after winning three-runner maiden Irish point-to-point last year. Hasn't shown much in two starts so far under Rules, both in heavy ground, but too early to completely write him off.

511-2OR:
7/1

Bought for a hefty £80,000 after easily winning Irish maiden point-to-point in January. Makes Rules debut here for top yard and market should indicate just how much is expected.

511-2OR:
25/1

Shown promise on all four starts in bumpers and makes hurdles debut here. Yard capable of producing a decent horse and wouldn't surprise to see him run a fair race.

611-2OR: C
11/4

First-time hood applied having proved a touch disappointing when only fifth last time. Had previously won heavy ground bumper here and failed by just half a length following start to make a winning hurdles bow. Won't be far away.

5/1

Looked promising when winning Fontwell bumper on racecourse bow back in February last year but hasn't really gone on from there in four starts since. Extra two furlongs may help the cause though and hails from powerful yard.

611-2OR:
12/1

Stayed on into fourth over nearly 2m4f in heavy ground last time, first sign of ability. Drop back in trip doesn't look ideal and might need more of a stamina test.

711-2OR:
100/1

Pulled up before 4 out when well behind on first start under Rules at Chepstow last month following 494-day absence. Should strip fitter but plenty more needed if he is going to have any chance of even a mid-division finish here.

11/10

Looks well up to winning a race or two and showed ability first three starts prior to promising third at Carlisle last time on handicap bow. That looks best form on offer so has to have a big chance.

510-9OR:
100/1

Stayed on steadily on debut to be fifth in bumper won by Haldon Hill here, but was beaten out of sight on subsequent start. Much more needed on hurdles bow and others make more appeal.

610-9OR:
100/1

Second in Warwick bumper on racecourse debut promised much but has shown nothing in three starts since in varied company. Needs to really get her act together to get involved in this.

Betting

Forecast

Saint De Vassy (11/10), Haldon Hill (11/4), Jaytrack Parkhomes (5/1), Dolphin Square (7/1), Jog On (12/1), Endless Flight (25/1), Ballybreen (50/1), Moor Freedom (100/1), Dorrana (100/1), Outlaw Jack (100/1)

Verdict

SAINT DE VASSY is a fairly confident choice following his good run in a handicap at Carlisle last time out. The hood has been applied to Haldon Hill who ran flat last time having looked progressive prior to that. He could be a player if back on song, while expensive purchase Dolphin Square could be anything and has to be respected. Endless Flight and Jaytrack Parkhomes are others who shouldn't be too far away.
