511-0OR:
100/1

Well held on all his three starts under Rules and now tried in a cheekpieces and tongue-tie headgear combination for the first time. Not one who is expected to make much impact on his third hurdles start.

411-0OR:
40/1

Up in trip (2m5f) for the first time after nine months off at Warwick last time when finishing midfield, showing the first signs of ability. Needs this run for a mark and makes little appeal until he gains one.

511-0OR:
40/1

Second foal from an unraced dam; closely related to useful hurdler/top-class chaser Sub Lieutenant and half-sister to Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Lord Windermere. Makes some appeal based on pedigree but may need time and distance first.

There was something to like about his debut effort although that demonstrated that he needed the experience and a greater test of stamina. Failed to build on that effort though when next seen seven-months later; watching brief advised.

511-0OR:
6/1

From a top yard; has shown ability on both his starts in bumpers so far despite looking rough around the edges (runner-up both times). Going over hurdles and the step up in trip look ideal and he's a big player on his timber debut.

411-0OR:
18/1

From last year's winning stable he had every chance when slipping up on his sole point-to-point start at Tabley (4-6 favourite). Showed further promise on his Hexham bumper debut, beaten 8L but not disgraced, ought to do better in the future.

411-0OR:

Looks a speedy sort on pedigree but shaped more like a stayer when finishing midfield on his bumper debut at Chepstow last month. Stayed on gradually and no surprise to see him tackling 3.5f further for his hurdles debut.

511-0OR:
9/1

Modest form in three Irish point-to-points before switching to race under Rules finishing a sound enough third on his Uttoxeter hurdling debut behind a smart winner in Mason Jar (winner again since). Should have something more to offer this time.

511-0OR:
5/2

Brings good bumper form to the party having won on his bumper debut (made all) at Ffos Las in testing conditions. Second on his only other bumper start over the same C&D when making the favourite work hard under a penalty; likeable sort for hurdling.

611-0OR:
150/1

Numerous unsuccessful attempts in point-to-points; wore cheekpieces for his Rules debut in a bumper here but unsurprisingly cut little ice. Started 100-1 on that occasion, faces another struggle now over hurdles.

511-0OR:
2/1

Won his only Irish point-to-point before being sold for £125,000; finished second on both his bumper starts last season (well-backed both times). Put in his place by a smarter bumper horse on hurdles debut; faces an easier task this time around.

Last RunWatch last race

710-7OR:
200/1

Has an unenviable record of 0-17 in point-to-points and her Rules form has already seen her beaten 70L plus on two occasions. Impossible to make a case for her winning this or even being competitive.

Betting

Forecast

Thunderstruck (2/1), Stick With Bill (5/2), Golden Gift (6/1), Favori De Sivola (13/2), Potters Venture (9/1), Oscars Moonshine (16/1), Neville's Cross (18/1), Demachine (40/1), Capparattin (40/1), Bindon Lane (100/1), Thestopperdunne (150/1), Justu (200/1)

Verdict

Tom Lacey took this race last year with Kateson and his runner this time around Neville’s Cross makes some appeal based on his Hexham bumper debut where he made his presence felt. However there are one or two that just have a little more experience one of those being GOLDEN GIFT from the Nicholls yard twice a runner-up in bumpers when still learning and now making his hurdling debut – he could well have benefitted from the break. Thunderstruck is another contender having shaped well on his seasonal/hurdles bow and that experience is expected to stand him in good stead. Stick With Bill, Potters Venture and Oscars Moonshine are another trio expected to be involved.
