511-0OR:
8/1

Maiden point-to-pointer, beaten in excess of 30L both runs since going into maiden hurdles, remains opposable for now.

611-0OR:
20/1

Lawman filly, 1-30 on the Flat having failed to add to debut success at Windsor in 2015. Goes jumping for the first time and market should be a fair guide to chances.

410-12OR: 110
6/4

Not disgraced in soft-ground Southwell handicap hurdle in March when last spotted. Respected back in maiden company off the break and would have place claims at least.

4/6

Has finished second in 4-5 starts in maiden/novice hurdles to this point, latest when unable to reel in front-running odds-on jolly upped to this trip at Stratford. Repeat effort may suffice to get off the mark.

410-12OR:
25/1

Remote fourth of eight in last month's hurdling bow at Stratford over shorter trip. Plenty to work on if seeking to improve on that placing now.

710-7OR:
20/1

Tailed off six days ago over C&D on hurdling introduction, wasn't totally unfancied in the betting that day and should at least be sharper now. Something to work on.

40/1

Tailed off here over further on debut in June and didn't achieve a lot with 40L third of six in a selling handicap hurdle at Stratford this month. Plenty more required.

510-7OR:
33/1

Modest mare in bumpers and well held on hurdles bow when beaten 25L in a Worcester maiden (2m, good to soft) last month. Big step forward is demanded.

Betting

Forecast

Emerald Rocket (4/6), Caswell Bay (6/4), Irska (8/1), Cuddle Up (20/1), Top Beak (20/1), Onboard (25/1), Vinnie's Icon (33/1), Goodgollymissjolly (40/1)

Verdict

EMERALD ROCKET has developed a fondness for finishing second over timber already and has been costly to back, but he did little wrong last time in trying to catch an all-the-way winner and should be able to open his account with a repeat effort. Caswell Bay wasn't disgraced in a Southwell handicap when last spotted in the spring and tops the opposition on form while jumping debutante Top Beak is worth a betting check in a weak contest.
