511-2OR:
66/1

Runner-up at Windsor in July off a mark of 52, and ran several creditable races subsequently, but makes hurdles debut against a couple rated much higher in that sphere, and best watched.

Looked a really good prospect when winning a Kempton bumper two years ago in style, but not seen since. Market will reveal expectations on this belated hurdles bow, and respected if money speaks for him.

611-2OR:
66/1

Best effort by some way in bumpers when fourth of 14 to Sevarano at Kempton in February 2018. Below that form twice since, and is returning from a lengthy absence now tackling hurdles.

611-2OR:
50/1

Runner-up in a point-to-point, but hasn't gone on from promise of Rules debut, and beaten a long way when third at Fakenham last time.

611-2OR:
4/1

Runner-up in a point-to-point in April 2017. Has been compromised by a tendency to pull hard over hurdles so far, but improved when fourth of 14 to Snapdragon Fire at Ludlow last time, and will do better still if he learns to settle.

511-2OR:

Favourite when third on bumper debut here in September, but hasn't progressed as yet, and bit disappointing when fifth of 7 to Dr Sanderson in a 2m novice at Ffos Las on hurdling debut. Early days still, so not dismissed.

511-2OR:

Some promise in a bumper for Sam Thomas, but has gone the wrong way, including starting out for new yard in a hood over C&D last time. Patience wearing thin.

410-9OR:
14/1

Fairly useful on the Flat and showed plenty when third to Praeceps on hurdles bow at Market Rasen last month. May have found the run coming too soon when flopping last time, but that poor showing remains a worry.

410-9OR:
14/1

Running well at a modest level on the Flat of late, and improved to win by a wide margin at Lingfield (OR50) last time. Different questions asked here, but can't be ruled out in current heart.

By Oscar out of a Presenting mare. Winner of a point-to-point in December, but down the field in a pair of bumpers, changing stables in between. May need time to fulfil her potential.

9/2

Won over 1m on the Flat for John Oxx in Ireland. Shaped with promise when second on hurdles debut at Warwick, and similar form when fifth of 15 to Song For Someone there last time. Should be involved again.

Sister to the useful bumper/hurdle/Flat winner Cousin Khee, but showed very little in a hood on her racecourse bow at Southwell last summer.

Betting

Forecast

Captain Mcgarry (11/10), Locker Room Talk (4/1), Isaac Wonder (9/2), Affluence (14/1), Ace Ventura (14/1), Pond Road (16/1), Deputy's Oscar (22/1), Ledbury (25/1), Sirobbie (33/1), Jimmi Chew (50/1), Goutez Moi (66/1), Arcadian Sea (66/1), Millie Khee (150/1)

Verdict

The market will be telling, but CAPTAIN MCGARRY won well despite greenness on his sole start in bumpers, and is taken to defy a long absence on his hurdles bow. Isaac Wonder has run with credit on all three starts to date since switched to hurdles, and is worthy of consideration, as is Locker Room Talk, who appeals as the type to keep improving, especially if he can learn to accept restraint.
