510-12OR: BF
5/2

Presenting gelding (cost €42,000 as a 3yo); dam was a 2m3f hurdle winner; 11-4jf when finishing 8L fourth of 12 on debut in an Ayr bumper (2m, good); that form is respectable and this race represents a suitable starting point for hurdling.

610-12OR:
11/8

Runner-up on both bumper starts for Jamie Snowden (beaten 4½L by the promising Lossiemouth at Carlisle); jumped tardily late on when finishing fourth on hurdles debut at Warwick (2m5f, good) 36 days ago; the type to do better.

Betting

Forecast

Thomas Macdonagh (11/8), No Regrets (5/2), Brigade of Guards (10/3), All Hail Caesar (4/1), Teescomponentstrig (5/1), Destiny Is All (40/1), Dorothy's Flame (50/1), Here In The Dark (50/1)

Verdict

Any evidence of sustained market support would offer encouragement with regards the chances of the hurdling newcomer No Regrets, and a race of this nature should definitely fall his way sooner or later. However, with Tim Vaughan and Jamie Snowden sending runners North, a lack of experience may just count against the Nicky Richards-trained runner. Thomas Macdonagh boasts a solid level of form in bumpers (including against the promising Lossiemouth) but with more experience of obstacles, the 118-rated BRIGADE OF GUARDS receives the tentative nod.
