511-0OR:
33/1

Poor Flat performer nowadays who stays 7f; struggled to make any impression when 125-1 for his Taunton hurdles debut. Refused to settle and the chances are that it will be a similar story of disappointment on his second hurdles start.

13/8

Twice a runner-up in Irish point-to-points he looked as though the run was badly needed on his Rules/stable/hurdles debut (early October). Left hurdles debut behind when having the run of the race at Wincanton last time; should progress again.

511-0OR:
66/1

7f Flat winner at a very modest level who has run twice over hurdles although it's hard to say he's shown much promise. Given his optimum distance on the Flat likely to have stamina issues before the issue of ability is discussed.

9/2

Ex-French hurdler who has yet to win (0-7) but has shown some fair form on occasions; now makes GB/stable debut. Hard to know what to expect after an absence although the yard have already had two winners this week.

611-0OR:
14/1

Modest but temperamental sort on the Flat (stays 1m4f); well below form when last seen in that sphere. Brother to fairly useful hurdler Niblawi (2½m winner); has some ability but would need to take a step forward sent hurdling.

411-0OR:
5/4

Strong in the market for his bumper debut; showed plenty to work on although it looked as though he could do with a greater stamina test. Failed to progress from his debut after five months off last time; hurdles debut, may see him in a better light.

Forecast

Shantou Vow (5/4), Felix D'autry (11/8), Defuture Is Bright (13/8), Ask Henry (3/1), Fil D'ariane (9/2), Incredible Dream (14/1), Looking For Carl (16/1), Alfie's Angel (33/1), Essential (66/1)

Verdict

With the Tom Symonds yard looking to be in good form his ex-French recruit Fil D’Ariane should be able to make an impression on his GB debut having shown some fair form in France with these brush hurdles likely to prove to his liking. Felix D’Autry judged on the market support he attracted on his sole outing so far in a Fontwell bumper is better than his finishing position there suggests and it will come as no surprise to see him make a deeper impression. Shantou Vow another bumper recruit looks as though he could be involved but a chance is taken with DEFUTURE IS BRIGHT. His fourth at Wincanton showed enough promise to make him of interest with that experience standing him in good stead.
