Ex-French recruit who ended last season on the up, easily opening account in 2m Wincanton novice before following up under a penalty over C&D. Open to further improvement and has leading claims.
Headstrong front runner who has quickly made up into a useful hurdler since the resumption, winning a brace of handicaps and a novice at Stratford (16.3f) last month. Sure to make another bold bid.
Modest maiden on Flat who was well held on his completed start over hurdles in 2018/19. Easy to oppose.
Returned from a long absence winning 2m novice hurdles at Southwell and Market Rasen this summer. Bit underwhelming when turned over at short odds at Uttoxeter since but can still play a part.
Bumper winner for Fergal O'Brien and made it 2-2 over hurdles/for this yard when readily landing the odds at Perth. Creditable third under a double penalty at Market Rasen but this asks for more.
For Pleasure (7/5), Fidelio Vallis (13/8), Sangha River (5/1), Mrs Hyde (15/2), Cherry Cola (14/1), Gorham's Cave (250/1)
FIDELIO VALLIS ended last season very much on the up and is open to further progress, so he makes plenty of appeal returning for a red-hot stable. Headstrong front runner For Pleasure conceded 10 lb to a pair of bumper winners at Stratford last month and will ensure the selection doesn't have it easy.
