511-10OR: D
4/1

Built on a string of placed efforts in bumpers when victorious by a neck in a 2m novice race on hurdling debut at Plumpton (soft) at the start of last month. Runner-up has franked the form since and he holds strong claims in this race.

611-4OR:
15/8

Placed in a Newbury (good-to-soft) bumper over an extended 2m on debut in November 2018. Pulled hard prior to falling at the first on hurdles debut 12 months later and is interesting for a leading stable.

Placed second in a 3m point-to-point at Dromahane (soft) on debut in April. Well beaten 33L sixth at Sandown (2m, heavy) on hurdling and Rules debut last month and is likely to appreciate further in time.

611-4OR:
20/1

Respectable effort in finishing 11½L fourth in a novice event over an extended 2m3f on hurdling debut at Hereford (soft) last month. Likely to have improved for the experience and is an interesting runner dropping in distance.

Run well in all three bumpers so far including when runner-up in a bumper over an extended 2m at Bangor (heavy) at the end of November. Bold show expected on first start over hurdles.

Five race maiden was beaten 36L in a novice hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Leicester (heavy) last month. Others make more appeal in this race.

511-4OR:

Placed twice in bumpers and finished a respectable 8¼L sixth in a big field hurdle over an extended 2m at Newbury (soft) last time out. Worth a check in the market.

611-4OR:
100/1

Placed in a couple of point-to-point races this season but struggled when pulled up over an extended 2m4f in a maiden hurdle on Rules debut at Leicester (heavy) last time out. More needed in this race.

610-11OR:

Placed in a bumper on debut but hasn't built on that promising effort including when 38L sixth over an extended 2m in a novice hurdle at Market Rasen (good-to-soft) on her most recent outing.

Making her racecourse debut when finishing 42L eleventh in a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m at Doncaster (good-to-soft) recently. Others make more appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Allart (15/8), Namib Dancer (7/2), Adicci (4/1), Stimulating Song (10/1), Book Of Invasions (12/1), Llandinabo Lad (12/1), Prussia With Love (14/1), It Can Be Done (20/1), Black Gerry (20/1), Eau Top (20/1), Present Endeavour (50/1), Tricky Customer (100/1)

Verdict

NAMIB DANCER has run well on both previous hurdle starts and he can go one better than when finishing runner-up at at Kempton last time out by taking this competitive looking novices' hurdle. The selection looks capable of getting the better of previous winner Adicci who can finish runner-up ahead of Allart who can put a disappointing non-completion on hurdling debut last time out behind him to take third.
  1. Namib Dancer
  2. Adicci
