411-1OR: 130D
2/5

Useful maiden on the Flat when trained in France; justified some good support to win on his hurdles/GB/stable debut in April. Runner-up twice since to two useful sorts particularly Longhouse Sale who he was second to at Ludlow; sets a good standard.

610-12OR:
150/1

Second run for this yard having shown very little on his debut (previously well beaten all starts in Ireland). Looks limited on his performances so far and set to struggle again here.

510-12OR:
20/1

Hurdling newcomer who has proved nothing out of the ordinary so far in four bumpers starts. Went in snatches last time and hard to fashion much of a case for him switching disciplines.

610-12OR:
6/1

Has some fairly useful Flat form to his name (won three times on the AW at up to 1m2f); ran to a modest level on his first hurdling start at Newbury (needed the experience). Has the ability to progress this run may see him in a better light.

610-12OR:
50/1

Shaped fairly well on his hurdling debut (wore hood first-time) in a small-field affair at Southwell in April; looked capable of better. Failed to impress or improve last time out at Warwick (beaten 34L); not easy to fashion a solid case for.

810-12OR:
66/1

Cheap purchase (£1,800) from the PTP field (fell on debut in that sphere; unplaced only other start). Makes his Rules debut but likely to find this test to difficult and expectations are low for his initial start.

410-9OR:
8/1

Qualified for a mark on the Flat; form looked modest in that sphere but not unduly punished on his only Flat run for this yard. Quickly switched to hurdles he's not really taken to jumping (hurdles poorly); needs to improve.

Twistp1,t120
410-9OR:
7/2

From a good jumping yard he ought to be able to get involved on his Flat form (AW winner; 1m2f). Shaped well enough on a couple of hurdles outings so far (not seen to best effect last time); needs this run for a handicap mark.

610-5OR:
16/1

Fortunate winner on her bumper debut (left clear final furlong) she failed to build on that result under a penalty when last seen. Now makes her hurdles debut (half-sister to bumper winner/useful hurdler Aurillac); chance of getting involved.

Betting

Forecast

Santani (2/5), Ventura Dragon (11/4), Twist (7/2), Graceful James (6/1), Made For You (8/1), Dorette (16/1), Feel The Pinch (20/1), Just Marvin (50/1), Royal Road (66/1), Dubai Outlaw (150/1)

Verdict

Despite having a penalty to cope with the best hurdling form is brought to the table by SANTANI who after winning on his debut has come across two useful sorts since only narrowly getting beaten last time; his experience should count for plenty in this. Twist hasn’t quite clicked over hurdles yet but that’s surely only a matter of time if he settles better especially as he now has headgear on for the first time that should help him in that sphere. Ventura Dragon may well be the main danger though his hurdles debut reading well especially as he allowed the winner to get first run on him. Graceful James and Dorette would be two others that have a chance of getting involved.
