15/8

He finished second of his debut at Fontwell (1m5½f) in a smart opening performance. The winner has since come out and won again. He is open to improvement on this second start. Leading contender.

9/2

Scored in a point-to-point at Courtown (3m) in his only appearance to date. Set for his Rules debut here where his yard don't have a great record in bumpers in recent years. Can't be discounted though.

12/1

Doyen gelding who is out of a 2m hurdles and chase winner. Should improve with experience on his side. Market likely to say a lot about his chances on his opening racecourse appearance here.

Age: 4|  Weight: 10-12  |  J: Henry Brooke |  T: B Ellison
9/2

Failed to shine on his debut when he was ninth of 13 at Kelso (2m) where he never threatened after going off at 9/1. Needs to improve on his second start if he is to be in the mix.

4/1

Fame and Glory gelding who cost €22,000 as a three-year-old. His dam won over hurdles and fences at trips between 2m2f-2m4f. Has had a wind-op. Looks good on paper. One to consider here on his debut.

33/1

Had just one horse behind him at Plumpton (2m1½f) in a seven runner contest where he weakened with 4f to go. Likely to be better once he goes over much further. Others make more of an appeal.

20/1

Mahler gelding who cost €18,000 as a three-year-old. His dam was unraced but a half-sister to Pepperoni Pete who was useful over hurdles and fences. Yard are out of form. Others are preferred in the race.

9/1

Getaway filly who cost £30,000 as a three-year-old. Her dam was unraced but is a half-sister to Grand Souvenir who campaigned over hurdles and fences in France. Likely type on her opening start.

Forecast

College Oak (15/8), High Renown (4/1), Ferry All (9/2), Crack Du Ninian (9/2), Lex Eleven (9/1), Cyrus Keep (12/1), Very Patient (20/1), Our Getaway Girl (25/1), Wild Gypsy Boy (25/1), Robsam (33/1)

Verdict
COLLEGE OAK was second on his debut behind a smart horse who has franked his form with another success since. Expect him to step up here on his second start to break his maiden. High Renown is set for his opening appearance here and although he does not have any experience, a big run may arrive, while Lex Eleven also makes a lot of appeal on breeding and can hit the frame on her first run.
  1. College Oak
  2. High Renown
  3. Lex Eleven
