711-10OR: 129D

Victorious four times from 12 starts over hurdles and finished a fair 29L sixth off a mark of 130 over an extended 2m4f at Plumpton (heavy) last time out. Leading contender dropping markedly in grade.

4/1

Maiden hurdle winner over 2m at Worcester (good) in August and has placed twice from three subsequent starts. Worth a check in the market back over hurdles having unseated on chase debut at Hereford (2m, soft) last time out.

Returning from a break when pulled up in a 2m handicap hurdle at Plumpton early last month. Worth a check in the market on this occasion.

410-12OR:
22/1

Beaten 16L when finishing fourth in a bumper over an extended 2m at Stratford (good) in July. Given a break since and interesting to see how he performs on hurdling debut.

710-12OR:
50/1

Placed once from three starts in bumpers for Sam Thomas in 2017. Absent since finishing fifth of seven over an extended 2m1f at Fontwell (good-to-firm) in August of that year. Others make more appeal on hurdles and stable debut.

50/1

Only previous victory came in a selling handicap at York (1m, good-to-firm) in a first time visor in July last year. Well beaten off a mark of 94 at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in July on last hurdles start and has struggled on the Flat subsequently.

510-12OR:
50/1

Signs of ability on Flat debut in 2017 but has struggled in two subsequent starts including when 40L sixth in a similar race to this over 2m3f on good ground here last month when debuting over hurdles folllowing over 18 months off the track.

50/1

14 race maiden was beaten 66L when last of 15 over an extended 2m2f at Exeter (soft) recently. Probably best watched with a tongue tie worn for the first time.

Betting

Forecast

Not Never (4/9), Throckley (4/1), West Drive (6/1), Golden Poet (7/1), Feu Ardent (22/1), Doodle Dandy (50/1), Johni Boxit (50/1), Ragtag Rascal (50/1), Ipflibbydibby (50/1)

Verdict

Top weight NOT NEVER looks capable of returning to winning ways dropping in grade in this selling hurdle. The selection saw off a useful hurdle on chase debut earlier this year and he can get back to winning ways by getting the better of his rivals here with Throckley capable of finishing runner-up on his return to hurdles. Third place can go to Golden Poet who can put a disappointing latest effort behind him.
  1. Not Never
  2. Throckley
