811-12OR: 98BF
6/1

Won two of first three timber last season at 3m, narrowly beaten in between over 2m5½f. Was then pulled up over fences in December and never happy on final start at Taunton in March when pulled up again. May bounce back after layoff.

511-10OR: 96
7/4

Regressive in five runs last season, three of them in maiden/novice hurdles over 2m; returns for handicapping debut tackling a brand new trip and with all manner of improvement to find.

1111-4OR: 90
8/1

15-race maiden, placed three times in seven starts over hurdles. 19L fourth of nine in C&D conditionals race last month; the booking of Sam Twiston-Davies in a noted one now (1-3 previously for trainer).

911-2OR: 88D
6/1

Sole success came all the way back in November 2017 in a maiden hurdle at Hereford over this sort of trip. Just outside the money in recent runs at Warwick and Ffos Las, latest in first-time cheekpieces (retained) and can give decent account again.

610-12OR: 84
10/1

Stuck on well to score for the first time at Plumpton (3m1f, good to firm) in February. Failed to get involved on his reappearance here last month and hard to be confident about what he will produce now as a result.

710-11OR: 83
33/1

Hasn't come within hailing distance of winning in nine starts under rules, the last five of them over fences. First time tackling a handicap over timber and needs to improve markedly to get in the mix.

710-9OR: 81
7/2

Improved on handicap hurdle debut at Taunton (3m, good to soft; 16-1) when 15½L fourth of 14 in March. Eased by the handicapper on first start since and might be one to do better if ready to roll now.

610-7OR: 79
50/1

Moderate point-to-pointer, hasn't threatened to improve in three spins in maiden/novice hurdling company so far. Goes handicapping with a demand for improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Pond Road (7/4), Three In One (7/2), Definately Vinnie (6/1), Gonnabegood (6/1), Velvet Cognac (8/1), Jimmy (10/1), Robin De Broome (12/1), Over The Arch (33/1), Ballinamona Flyer (50/1)

Verdict

He's adept at such tasks but even Olly Murphy is struggling to get to the bottom of Robin De Broome, who has been prominent in the betting twice since joining his yard. He sports new headgear in latest attempts to get him firing. Three In One has been cut some slack by the assessor and ran better on handicap bow when last spotted, while Gonnabegood could hit form again after a break and Sam Twiston-Davies' presence suggests better is anticipated from Velvet Cognac. DEFINITELY VINNIE has run well in recent starts at Warwick and Ffos Las and is eased 2lb, getting him a tentative vote in a race where few are convincing.
  1. Definately Vinnie
  2. Three In One
  3. Velvet Cognac
