611-2OR: BF
7/2

Placed three times in four starts in bumpers for this yard, enthusiasm somewhat tempered by a 471-day absence ahead of this first jumping test but worth a market check no less.

511-2OR:
50/1

Couple of unconvincing efforts so far at Fontwell in maiden/novice hurdles, going to need a chunky step forward on the form to get involved here.

5/2

Has shown some fair Flat form but (rated 68) but hasn't won in that sphere since May 2016 (plenty of placed efforts). Fair efforts at Lingfield and Wincanton lately since going novice hurdling; place claims.

711-2OR: CD
11/4

Bumper winner who has shown little aptitude for hurdling, unseating rider early in pre-Christmas runs at Wincanton and Ludlow. First-time blinkers need to have a remarkable effect to see her in the mix.

611-2OR:
7/1

Twice a winner in Irish point-to-points including the last time she was seen in that discipline by 4L in November. Found a good starting place by new handler and should be one of the more likely types.

511-2OR:
125/1

A very modest handicapper on the Flat and was pulled up in three previous starts over hurdles. Very hard to recommend on those performances.

711-2OR:
50/1

896 days have gone by since she walked home in a Uttoxeter maiden hurdle (2m, good; 100-1) on sole try over flights. Race was won by La Bague Au Roi, which is where the positives end.

410-10OR:
6/1

Won once from nine Flat starts for Hughie Morrison, that win coming at Leicester (1m2f) in August from a mark of 72. Held up on hurdles bow over C&D last month, making some progress before weakening. Fitter now and may do better.

410-10OR:
50/1

Pulled up on stable/hurdles bow at Hereford in January and ran another poor race on the AW at Wolverhampton recently. Hard to make a case for at the moment.

Betting

Forecast

Saumur (5/2), Sparkling Dawn (11/4), Jane Lamb (7/2), Bossiney Bay (6/1), The Crafty Touch (7/1), Plansina (50/1), Marlow Moss (50/1), Whizz Bang (50/1), Velvet Voice (125/1)

Verdict

A dual winner in Irish point-to-points, The Crafty Touch has been found a decent chance on her first start under rules by Jonjo O'Neill. She should have leading claims here but the market will surely detect that. BOSSINEY BAY made a decent start over C&D last month under a patient ride and, sharper now, this 72-rated Flat performer can take a step forward. Saumur has shown ability over hurdles while Jane Lamb is worth a betting check on return for Dan Skelton.
