20/1

Son of Big Bad Bob who showed ability when fifth of 11 to Dolphin Square in novice at Wincanton on hurdling debut. Will do better in time, but this looks too demanding.

6/1

Similar form when placed over hurdles at Wexford and Sligo for Liz Doyle in the spring, and has joined a yard which does well with similar recruits. Solid place claims on form, and may well do better yet.

411-0OR:
33/1

Sold for £38,000 after finishing third of 9 to Tritonix in a maiden bumper at Down Royal in May. Faces a stiff enough task on hurdles bow for new yard, but market check recommended for signs of confidence.

Showed a bit in bumpers for Shark Hanlon, and presumably in need of the outing when 39½L sixth of 11 to Jatiluwih in novice at Wetherby on hurdling debut for new yard, although the fitting of a tongue tie raises other concerns.

Half-brother to useful jumpers Close Touch and Open Hearted. Favourite, and shaped well when second of 12 to Shanroe in bumper at Perth on debut, and one to consider now hurdling for in-form yard.

Showed ability on bumper debut, but backward steps since for Charlie Longsdon, and starts out for new yard with something to prove.

411-0OR:

Won twice in bumpers, and not persevered with when fifth of 11 to Glory And Fortune in a novice at Huntingdon on hurdles bow. Will improve, but needs to in this company, for all his bumper exploits offer hope.

Listed placed on debut in France but things not quite gone to plan for new yard, albeit highly tried. Tried in a hood down in class after wind surgery now, and can have no excuses.

Fairly useful on the Flat at one time, winning twice for another yard last year. Well beaten in three starts over hurdles, however, and not of interest until handicapping.

511-0OR:

Just modest form in bumpers, but shaped up quite well until tiring when eighth of 13 to Imperial Alcazar in maiden at Aintree on hurdling debut. Will likely do better, and could challenge for places if doing so.

12/1

Showed ability on bumper debut, but left that bare form well behind when winning at at Warwick in May by ¾L from Killer Clown. Hard to know what that form's worth, but resepcted now switching to hurdles.

Betting

Forecast

Protektorat (6/4), Keen On (15/8), Cobaltic (6/1), On The Wild Side (7/1), Trincomalee (12/1), Clondaw Dancer (20/1), State Vision (25/1), Mount Windsor (25/1), Dublin Four (33/1), Midnight Sonata (33/1), Darkest Day (33/1), Red Charmer (100/1)

Verdict

PROTEKTORAT has been highly tried since joining Dan Skelton, and whil he's not fulfilled early promise, this drop in class on his first start of the season gives him a find chance to get his career back on track. Cobaltic is just the sort his yard does well with, and has solid place claims, while hurdling newcomer Keen On showed more than enough on his ole bumper start to suggest he'd make the grade over timber.
