- Confederation Of Forest Industries Ltd Juvenile Maiden Hurdle (Class 4)
- 1m 7f 169y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 11 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Ran well to finish runner-up in a 2m contest at Plumpton (good-to-firm) when making his hurdling debut last month. One to note with improvement likely.
Finished fifth on both hurdles starts so far most recently when beaten 15L at Worcester (2m, good) at the end of August. More needed if he's to take this event.
Unraced Ocovango gelding bought for €12,000 at the sales as a foal. Dam an unraced half-sister to useful pair Klepht and Welsh Shadow and he is an interesting runner for a top stable on racecourse debut.
13 race maiden under all codes and was beaten 45L when eighth in a 2m contest on hurdling debut at Worcester (good) in August. Others make more appeal.
Promising third in a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m at Down Royal (good) on jumping debut at the end of August. Changed stables since and is of interest in this contest.
Recorded his first placed effort when finishing third over 1m at Southwell at the start of May. Absent since and others make more appeal on hurdling debut.
11 race maiden was beaten 3L when fourth in a handicap over an extended 2m on the AW at Newcastle in August. Probably best watched on debut over hurdles.
Good third over an extended 2m at Market Rasen (good) on hurdles and stable debut in June. Disappointed twice subsequently however and others hold stronger claims.
Ran well to finish third in a 1m6f handicap at Salisbury (good-to-firm) early last month. Represents a decent yard and market support would be notable switched to hurdles for the first time.
Placed in a 1m handicap at Chepstow (good) on his penultimate start. Struggled last time out however and others make more appeal on hurdles debut.
13 race maiden on the Flat and finished well beaten when last of seven over 1m2f at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) in August. Others hold stronger claims on jumps and stable debut.
