611-5OR:

£85,000 Mahler gelding who got off the mark at the third time of asking (and second under Rules) when staying on well to land Kelso 2m maiden hurdle in October. Extra half mile to travel here and penalty to carry but has solid claims.

511-5OR: C

£90,000 gelded son of Shantou won Irish maiden point on debut in March and repreated the feat with winning Rules debut for new connections over 2m1f here last time (second Masters Apprentice runs in 1.05). Extra 3f now but looks decent.

510-12OR:

Shown very little in four bumpers so far and pulled up when tailed off last time at Carlisle in Novmber. Moutain to climb on hurdles debut.

Last RunWatch last race
4
510-12OR:

Beaten just a neck in Market Rasen bumper in March for Sue Smith, and has run creditably both starts so far over hurdles for new handler. Not out of this but may do better once tackling handicaps.

510-12OR:

Twice runner-up in bumpers at Ayr earlier in the year and shaped with promise on hurdles bow following summer break when fourth at Hexham in October. May improve but more needed to trouble anticipated principals.

Last RunWatch last race

Show a touch of ability in two bumpers for Keith Dalgleish but was beaten out of sight on hurdles bow for new yard at Catterick recently. Needs to take a big step forward to get involved here.

610-12OR: 130

Ex-Irish maiden hurdler but showed bits and pieces of form including on last start when third of 16 at Navan in March. Debut for shrewd new yard and worth noting for any sign of market confidence on British bow.

Last RunWatch last race

Hails from fine yard but has shown little in two starts so far over hurdles and was beaten a very long way in heavy ground at Uttoxeter last time. Hard to enthuse over on that evidence.

Betting

Forecast

Tara Mill (11/10), Minella Trump (13/8), Do Not Disturb (4/1), Milvale (8/1), Ladronne (33/1), Millie Of Mayo (100/1), Nomountainhienough (100/1), Croftys Josh (100/1)

Verdict

The two previous winners may have this between them and much will depend on who stays best. Marginal preference is for the unbeaten MINELLA TRUMP who goes an extra three furlongs following his winning Rules debut here three weeks ago and has won over 3m between the flags. Shock Kelso winner Do Not Disturb is going the right way and should make a proper race of it. The ex-Irish Tara Mill is open to improvement on her British debut, while Ladronne can win races in due course and may be in the running for a place at least.
