Lightly-raced since winning a Grade 2 novice hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Haydock (heavy) in January last year. Placed both starts over fences this campaign however and is a leading contender in this event.

50/1

Winner of a three runner 2m4f maiden point-to-point at Knightwick (good-to-firm) in April. Pulled up in a handicap hurdle here on return to action last month however and has plenty to find on these terms on her first start over fences.

Betting

Forecast

First Flow (1/9), Coole Well (11/4), Haldon Hill (6/1), Tinctoria (50/1)

Verdict

FIRST FLOW has placed behind useful looking rivals in his two chase starts to date and he can get off the mark at the third time of asking with victory in this four runner novices' event. The selection can see off Coole Well who ran well on his first start over fences while third place can go to chasing debutant Haldon Hill.
