611-4OR: 122
8/1

Useful on the Flat (81-rated); is still getting to grips with the hurdling game. Wasn't fluent despite being an 11L winner at Fontwell (2m2f, good) and again jumping let him down latest when fourth at Plumpton. Vulnerable under the penalty.

510-12OR:
8/15

Won two of his three bumpers and fourth in Listed company in between. Above average recruit for the champion trainer and every chance he proves the one they all have to beat here.

510-12OR:
66/1

Non-factor in all four races under rules and can only be watched in the hope of some improvement.

410-12OR:
150/1

Tailed off in all three starts to date in bumpers so can't be fancied on hurdles debut.

510-12OR: BF
5/2

Bought for £125,000 after recording a good time to land his sole point-to-point. Second in both bumpers he contested last season and surely di better now over hurdles and with a longer trip; respected.

610-5OR: WS
100/1

Winner of her only Irish point-to-point by 1L last October; cost £19,000 straight after that. Stopped quickly in both previous bumpers so hopefully wind surgery will help her see this race out better.

Betting

Forecast

Enrilo (8/15), Thunderstruck (5/2), Archimento (8/1), First Assembly (66/1), Whatcolourishe (100/1), Kalabee (150/1)

Verdict

Although Archimento has the benefit of experience over hurdles his jumping is actually a bigger concern than the two interesting newcomers ENRILO and Thunderstruck so they are preferred with the Paul Nicholls trained gelding getting the vote after winning two bumpers in three starts.
  1. Enrilo
  2. Thunderstruck
  3. Archimento
