Dual handicap hurdle winner earlier this year including by 10L over an extended 3m2f at Stratford (good) in March. Good third at Cheltenham (3m, good) subsequently and is interesting on debut over fences.

Beaten a head when finishing runner-up over 2m4f at Huntingdon (good) on chase debut last October. Raised 10lb for that effort and interesting to see how he fares on first start since.

Good ½L second over an extended 2m6f at Stratford (good-to-soft) on his penultimate start. Step back up in trip should suit following an 8L fifth at Exeter (2m3f, good) last month.

6/1

Four time winning hurdler including over an extended 3m1f at Hereford (good-to-firm) last October. Struggled over fences since and market support would be notable off a mark 7lb lower than for that Hereford victory.

Betting

Forecast

The Welsh Paddies (2/1), Heydour (3/1), Mac Tottie (9/2), Marble Moon (6/1), Head To The Stars (13/2), Nesterenko (9/1)

Verdict

THE WELSH PADDIES has shown decent form over hurdles in recent starts and he can get off the mark over fences at the first time of asking in this novices' handicap. The selection should appreciate the forecast underfoot conditions and he can get the better of Heydour who is making his first start following an absence while third place can go to top weight Mac Tottie who is making his chase debut.
  1. The Welsh Paddies
  2. Heydour
  3. Mac Tottie
