811-9OR: 122D
11/1

Consistent sort who has a penalty to deal with but has won over hurdles/fences (needs to brush up his jumping in the latter sphere). Should make his presence felt returning to hurdles despite a stiff task at the weights.

1011-9OR: 129BFD
10/11

Useful chaser who made a belated/successful switch to hurdles earlier in the week after eight months off; had the run of things in a weak heat. Should be good enough to carry a penalty given his chasing ability if he can handle this quick return to t

511-2OR: D
7/1

Winner on the second of his two Irish point-to-point starts; exhibited plenty of ability on his Rules debut at Wetherby (2m4f, good/soft). Looked as though he would be better for the run having weakened in the closing stages; progress likely.

511-2OR: D
2/1

£65,000 5yo; successful on the third of his Irish point-to-point starts by 5.5L after being off 405 days. Joined a top-class yard (2-7 with novice hurdle newcomers this year); market will be useful to gauge the expectations on his Rules debut.

610-9OR:
50/1

Modest form in three bumpers (finished fourth each time) before failing to show any real progress over hurdles in two attempts. Pulled-up last time (never travelling/jumped poorly); hard to see her making much of an impact.

Forecast

Jepeck (10/11), The Mulcair (2/1), Eclair On Line (7/1), Danboru (11/1), Levasseur (33/1), Witham (50/1)

Verdict

The Mulcair cost £65,000 after winning his point-to-point and related to some decent types under Rules has to come with a certain level of expectation making his Rules/hurdles debut from a top-class yard. Positive market vibes would make him a real live prospect although he will have to be right up to the mark to beat Bangor winner JEPECK who makes a quick return and may get the run of this race again with his experience giving him a further advantage. Danboru wasn’t disgraced over fences last time in a decent contest but he’s consistent rather than progressive and it would be Éclair On Line who would be of more interest after a promising debut at Wetherby.
