511-6OR: 134BF
11/10

Very easy winner on second start over hurdles at Huntingdon having undergone wind surgery and found only one too good since under penalty at Kempton. That form boosted when winner scored again next time, up in trip and strong credentials.

66/1

Just one win from 73 career starts and that came over fences back in 2013, now 12-years-old and a very long while since there were positives shown. Returns from 330-day absence and readily overlooked.

5/6

Point-to-point winner, runner-up on second start over timber at Doncaster (2m5f, good) in November and form of Chepstow fourth in January over just shy of 3m looks strong. Place claims once more.

811-0OR:
25/1

Placed in a couple of point-to-points last season but pulled up last month in Hereford novice hurdle (3m2f, good to soft; 33-1) have made hard work of it for much of the journey. Tongue tie added here.

811-0OR:
100/1

Three-figure prices in maiden hurdles at Warwick (2m5f, good) and Uttoxeter (2m7½f, soft) and pulled up in both. Unlikely to have a big role.

€1,500 3-y-o, closely related to fairly useful hurdler Doctor Dex, makes rules bow here and likely best watched.

510-7OR:
100/1

Started at a triple-figure price in all her three runs so far but has made very little impact in her two hurdles outings. Hard to see her making an impression in this.

610-7OR:
100/1

Beat very little home in three-race bumper career and sent off 200-1 on hurdles debut at Warwick (2m3f, good) in February when pulled up. Not hard to bypass.

610-7OR:
14/1

Point winner (awarded race) last May; uncompetitive in two starts so far in maiden/novice hurdles and needs this new trip to bring about plenty improvement.

510-7OR:
11/1

Half-sister to four winners including a couple that this yard have done well with she hinted at some ability on her bumper debut but no more than that (100-1 chance) and no impression in 2m Ludlow novice hurdle this month.

Betting

Forecast

Minella Bobo (5/6), Ferrobin (11/10), Mac Amara (11/1), Havana River (14/1), My Boy Colin (25/1), Thenightisyoung (25/1), Boxer Beat (66/1), Rambling River (100/1), Earcomesali (100/1), Classy Afair (100/1)

Verdict

FERROBIN and Minella Bobo appear the two most likely candidates here. The former ran into a good sort at Kempton in February when conceding a penalty and should have more to offer now upped in trip. He can get the Skelton's off to a winning start, with Richard Johnson's mount the one to give him something to think about. The remainder are tough to be positive about on form, with Havana River a potential improver upped in distance.
