Very little to show for seven Flat starts at varying trips and made an inauspicious start to his hurdling career last time at Huntingdon. Dropped out he was always behind after an awkward jump early on; not one at the forefront of calculations.

Fair on the Flat for Richard Hannon winning a 1m2f claimer on his last start in that sphere. Yet to show much in two hurdles starts, starting at 50-1 last time and may well be one for handicaps if he shows some zip this time.

Fair on the Flat when trained in France by Francois Rohaut before being sold for €17,000 in July to current connections. Brother to smart hurdler Stratum shaped as if needing the run when a well-beaten third on hurdling debut at Bangor (lost a shoe).

Ran quite well on his first start for this yard recently on the AW finishing second at Newcastle over 1m4f. Offered little on his debut over hurdles when with Stef Keniry but no surprise if he shows a little more this time around.

Modest maiden on the Flat (tried up to 1m6f) running poorly on his Fibresand debut last time without the headgear worn on his previous start. Now makes his hurdles debut but would need others to underperform to make his mark.

310-12OR:

Half-brother to useful hurdler Ming Dynasty who makes his hurdles having left Karl Burke for whom he showed some fair Flat form. Out of sorts when last seen though on the Flat, well beaten in a Lingfield seller; more needed.

310-12OR:

Shown some creditable form on this Flat for this yard without winning and looks the type to make a successful transition to hurdling. Dam half-sister to fairly useful hurdler Ile de Re; won't be a surprise to see him involved.

310-12OR:
11/2

Useful but rather unreliable sort on the Flat when with Mark Johnston who ran one of his lesser races when last seen on the level. Now switched to a new yard (looks the second string on jockey bookings); respected if he takes to hurdles.

310-12OR:
50/1

Failed to win on the Flat (0-6) and could best be described as a fair maiden in that sphere. Failed to settle and ran far too free on his hurdling debut in a Musselburgh juvenile last month; would need to improve to make his mark.

Rather quirky performer on the Flat winning a seller when he was last seen in that sphere for Andrew Balding. Both outings over hurdles so far have been no more than modest, more needed to get involved.

310-12OR:
5/2

One of the better performer on the Flat in this who showed plenty of aptitude for hurdles when making his debut over timber at Huntingdon last month. Open to plenty of improvement and one of the major players in this.

310-12OR:
11/10

Fairly useful sort on the Flat when trained by Tom Dascombe he comes from a family that contains some fair jumping types. Shaped as if still in good form when last seen on the Flat, one to note in the market on his debut for a leading yard.

310-5OR:
100/1

Well below form when last seen on the Flat and only capable of modest form when seen in that sphere (best form on Fibresand). Makes her hurdling/stable debut having cost just £2,500 last month; others appeal more.

Last RunWatch last race

310-5OR:
150/1

A maiden on the Flat her hurdling form hasn't been any better in two starts even in a first-time hood when last seen at Wincanton. Unlikely to play much of a part in this given her previous form.

Betting

Forecast

Zoffee (11/10), Silkstone (5/2), Defining Battle (9/2), Lord Lamington (11/2), Glorious Dane (14/1), Kings Royal Hussar (16/1), Queen's Soldier (25/1), Dynali (33/1), Hurricane Hero (33/1), Dawn Treader (40/1), Numero Uno (50/1), Holy Hymn (100/1), Dolly Dupree (100/1), Global Goddess (150/1), Bagatino (150/1)

Verdict

One or two useful types from the Flat make their hurdling debuts here with the most interesting of that group looking to be DEFINING BATTLE who won his last two start on the level for Mick Halford and has now joined the Skelton yard who do well with their hurdling recruits. Zoffee rated 85 on the Flat has the potential to do well in this sphere having shown some good Flat form whilst the Alan King duo Kings Royal Hussar and Lord Lamington should both make an impact. Silkstone looks to build on the promise he showed last time at Huntingdon and he to is worth including in calculations in what promises to be an informative event.
