611-10OR: 127D
16/1

Very lightly-raced since winning three of his four hurdles races at the start of the 2018 season, rather lost his way over hurdles when he returned. Better than the result/finishing position would suggest at Wetherby on chase debut; capable of better

16/1

Useful form over hurdles although he's not without his quirks (has run in snatches); not seen since falling late on at Taunton in December when running off this mark. May need this outing now that he makes his chasing/seasonal debut.

10/1

Made the most of an easy opportunity to record his first win over hurdles returning from a break he then followed up here on his handicap debut. Has the make and shape of a chaser who looks just the type to make his mark on debut.

5/1

Dual hurdles winner who appears to be best when fresh with both his victories over the smaller obstacles coming off breaks. Disappointed twice in handicaps over hurdles but now returns from another break to debut over fences; on the shortlist.

11/2

Irish point-to-point winner whose win over hurdles was probably a bonus when scoring at Huntingdon. Found the test too sharp on his only other hurdling start; may need further to be seen at his best over fences but still appeals from a good yard.

25/1

Dual hurdles winner either side of the New Year who has the look of a chaser and may do better switched to this discipline. Ran a strange race on recent return over hurdles finishing well but had flashed some temperament issues in-running.

9/2

Ex-French hurdler who scored over hurdles on his second and final start in his native land before matching his French form on his most recent start (post wind op). Type this yard do well with; may need a little further to show his best over fences.

Improved to open his hurdling account on handicap debut at Ffos Las over 2m4f travelling well throughout the race. Bred to make a chaser he made a disappointing start to his chasing career; pulled-up at Uttoxeter, needs to bounce back.

410-13OR: 124D
9/1

Lost his way over hurdles after making a promising start over timber on his initial run for this yard winning by 6L at Huntingdon. Never really matched that performance; now goes over fences for a very capable yard, not one to write off easily.

610-11OR: 114BFD
4/1

One of the few in this that have fencing experience and he already clocked up some decent form with a win by 23L at Fontwell as the highlight. Matched that run last time with a good second; sets the form standard, has obvious claims in a decent heat.

100/1

Failed to repeat his Worcester novice hurdle win when pulled up on his handicap debut when last seen at Stratford. His sole win came as rather a shock (SP 50-1); looks up against it in a race of this nature for his chasing debut.

510-6OR: 109BF
11/1

Irish point-to-point winner who showed some progressive form as a hurdler winning twice in the spring in handicaps off lower marks. Failed to complete a hat-trick when last seen; looks a chasing sort, one to consider on his reappearance.

Betting

Forecast

Way Out West (4/1), Espoir De Guye (9/2), Simply The Betts (5/1), Hes No Trouble (11/2), Katpoli (9/1), Cilaos Glace (10/1), Manofthemoment (11/1), Vado Forte (16/1), Don't Ask (16/1), Golden Whisky (25/1), Another Theatre (25/1), Well Said (100/1)

Verdict

Very few of these have any chasing experience but there are plenty of what are thought to be chasing types amongst the field. Way Out West is the most experienced in this sphere having already had three goes over fences and his form sets a good benchmark. Simply The Betts has been given some time to mature and his record first-time out makes him of interest along with Vado Forte and Manofthemoment. The two that have the best profiles are He’s No Trouble and CILAOS GLACE, the former comes from a yard that does well with this type but he’s narrowly shaded as the suggestion in this by the latter who comes here on a hat-trick having won his last two starts over hurdles and looks progressive.

  2. Hes No Trouble
