510-12OR:

Made little impression in three hurdles after being tailed off in lone point to point. Makes no appeal here.

Maiden of six point-to-points unlikely to make her presence felt now switched to rules against rivals who achieved more between the flags.

7/2

Dual bumper winner winless in seven hurdle races but she's placed in five of them en-route to a rating of 120. Others open to improvement but surprise if she doesn't make a bold bid.

510-12OR:
9/2

Fontwell bumper winner ran a more than respectable race in finishing second at Newton Abbot over hurdles back in May. Ought to win races and one of the more likely sorts here.

510-12OR:
28/1

Irish mares maiden point-to-point winner in December finished midfield on Rules bow at Uttoxeter in March. Better for switch to hurdles now but does have a bit to prove at this stage.

610-12OR: BF
14/1

Cost £175,000; pushed out to score by 5L on debut for this trainer in a Warwick bumper on New Years Eve 2017 before a fine second in a Listed bumper at Sandown in March. Pulled up on hurdles bow in Jan but if back on song she could easily take this.

510-12OR: BFC
8/13

Point-to-point and dual bumper scorer found only one too good at Sandown in Listed contest last March. Yard won this with very smart Posh Trish last year and have a fine chance here too.

410-12OR:

Promise of bumper third on debut not really built upon when she was last of eight at Doncaster subsequently over hurdles. Still early days but not on today's shortlist.

Betting

Forecast

Silver Forever (8/13), Just A Thought (7/2), Kissesforkatie (9/2), Queens Cave (14/1), Crossgalesfamegame (16/1), Outonpatrol (28/1), Sparky Valentine (33/1), Early Days (33/1), Go Millie Go (40/1), Gilwen Gracelyn (100/1)

Verdict

This looks a fair opportunity for smart bumper performer SILVER FOREVER and the fact that Paul Nicholls won the race with Posh Trish a year ago only adds to the optimism. Hurdles form setter Just A Thought looks sure to be involved and she id preferred to fragile but talented Queens Cave whose bumper form is closely comparable with the selection.
