13/2

53-rated on the Flat (2-25); carries a 7lb penalty for his shock 50-1 debut hurdles win at Uttoxeter (2m, soft) - beat Rebel Leader by 1½L; additional improvement required.

510-12OR:
50/1

Based with Nicky Henderson during his bumper career (0-4), was turned over at odds of 4-11f on debut at Ludlow in May 2018; wears a hood and a tongue-tie on hurdles/stable debut (sold for £2,000 in May).

20/1

Milan gelding; purchased for £18,000 in May after finishing runner-up in a Monksgrange maiden (3m) the previous month; on pedigree, should possess the speed for this 2m trip, albeit with chasing very much on the agenda in the long-term.

710-12OR:
8/1

Westerner gelding (from a Presenting mare); lacked fluency and was well beaten on rules/hurdles debut at Limerick (2m3f, heavy) in April 2018; returns from a 581-day absence in the care of Justin Landy.

510-12OR:
40/1

Runner-up for Robert Tyner at Kinsale (3m, yielding) in June; sold for £10,500 in August; 33-1 when finishing in the ruck (seventh of 13) on rules debut at Kelso (2m maiden) 19 days ago; considered unlikely.

410-12OR:
33/1

Cost £30,000 after winning a 3m maiden point-to-point in April (Knightwick); 22-1 when a tailed-off eighth of ten to Multellie on rules/stable/hurdles debut at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) last month.

510-12OR:
16/1

Twice paced in points (namely third to Malone Road); bought for £145,000 in May 2018; in deep on debut for Harry Fry at Newbury last December; poor comeback run at Southwell three weeks ago and since switched to the care of Ben Haslam.

Last RunWatch last race

610-12OR:
100/1

Modest on the Flat (42-rated); 100-1 when a backpedalling sixth of 12 to Kingrullah in a C&D maiden (soft) 25 days ago.

510-12OR:
6/4

Shantou gelding; justified favouritism when a cosy 6L debut winner at Ballycahane (3m maiden) in March; joined Donald McCain/Tim Leslie for £90,000 the following month; very much one for the shortlist on rules/hurdles debut.

9/4

Cost €200,000 as a yearling, presumably with a Flat career in mind (brother to the 1m2f German winner Chalcot); won a bumper with authority here last month (soft) before making a fair start over hurdles (fifth) at Ayr (2m, soft); place chance.

Last RunWatch last race

510-12OR:
33/1

Regressive on the Flat (54-rated; 1-15) and stamina reserves are an obvious concern now switched to hurdling; is considered an unlikely contender on his introduction to obstacles.

Betting

Forecast

Minella Trump (6/4), Order Of Thistle (9/4), Masters Apprentice (13/2), Cheers Jd (8/1), Gameface (16/1), Broadway Joe (20/1), Flamboyant Joyaux (33/1), So You Thought (33/1), Cilluirid (40/1), Alph (50/1), Highwayman (100/1), Donald Dux (100/1)

Verdict

Masters Apprentice carries a penalty for his shock 50-1 debut win at Uttoxeter and that will make his life more difficult in an admittedly modest contest. Meanwhile, the Sedgefield bumper scorer Order Of Thistle made a reasonable fist of hurdling at Ayr (fifth) without necessarily screaming ready-made future winner. Therefore, the standout candidate is surely the Ballycahane point-to-point scorer MINELLA TRUMP. He has since joined Donald McCain and Tim Leslie for £90,000, and at a realistic level should take plenty of beating on rules/hurdles debut under the wing of the championship seeking rider Brian Hughes.
