510-12OR:
125/1

Held in a couple of bumpers and a novices' hurdle since joining this trainer, but not devoid of ability here on his hurdles debut. Entitled to come on for that, but probably one to consider more closely when going handicapping.

9/2

Debut bumper winner at Newbury in March 2017 (good to soft), and reappeared later that year with a Listed second. Not seen again until May, when a tailed off and pulled up favourite on his hurdles debut. Tries again and is much respected.

Won bumpers in France and Britain, but went off favourite and didn't make it to the third on his recent hurdles debut at Wincanton. Has ability, but also now a bit to prove.

50/1

AQPS winner in France, where he had five runs in the early part of 2018, but has not been seen since May of that year. Since had wind surgery and changed hands. Deserves a market check on his British/hurdles debut.

510-12OR:
4/1

Made the frame in a Bangor bumper in April (good) and showed promise on last month's hurdles debut at Chepstow (2m, good to soft). Step up in trip looks sure to suit, and he is a likely contender.

410-12OR:

Has shown nothing in two recent starts, the latter when falling on his hurdles debut over C&D. Others preferred.

410-12OR:

40-1 and had excuses after an early mishap here on debut (2m2½f, good) last month. Even so, needs a lot of improvement on that to figure.

Triple AW Flat winner (1m4f-1m6f) for Andrew Balding, whom he left for £6,700 in June. Hasn't run since May. BHA rating of 60 on the Flat, where he is 0-2 on turf. Dam a half-sister to a 2m7f hurdle winner. Probably one to watch on hurdles debut.

410-12OR:
11/4

Soft ground Irish point winner on debut in March, and changed hands for £160,000 soon after. Half-brother to both a hurdle and a chase winner at 2m4f+ and could be suited by this test on his rules debut. Should go well.

Big prices and well beaten in both bumper outings and can only watch on his hurdles debut.

610-12OR:
66/1

Well held in both starts over hurdles, the more recent here over C&D. In good hands, but should make more appeal when the handicapper has given him a mark.

9/4

Fontwell bumper winner (1m5½f, good to firm) 13-months ago, and went on to be placed in a Listed bumper next time. Placed in both hurdles runs to date at up to 2m5½f and should again be a contender.

Last RunWatch last race

410-5OR:
66/1

33-1 and not devoid of ability on her debut in a Wincanton maiden hurdle last month. Should build on that, but likely to have to wait for another day.

Betting

Forecast

Kissesforkatie (9/4), Sporting John (11/4), Harry Senior (4/1), Bullionaire (9/2), Eritage (6/1), Escrime D'art (50/1), Whatsthecraicjack (66/1), Princess T (66/1), Breffniboy (125/1), Kendelu (200/1), Seasearch (200/1), Watar Allstar (250/1), Hartland Quay (250/1)

Verdict

Bullionaire returns with a bit to prove after his abortive hurdles debut in May, but he can't be written off after that. It would be no surprise to see him go close, while the same applies to Eritage, who was also a beaten favourite on his first try over hurdles. Harry Senior and Kissesforkatie both look potential contenders, but the vote goes to Irish point winner SPORTING JOHN, who is taken to make a winning rules debut.
