6/1
33/1, encouraging debut third of 9 in juvenile hurdle at Warwick (16f, soft, 33/1) on NH debut 35 days ago. Should do better, so must enter calculations.

Placed on 2 of his 3 starts in maidens at up to 1½m on the Flat for Dermot Weld. Bred for this game and shaped with some encouragement when a well-held second at Wetherby 18 days ago. Should improve.

Modest maiden on the Flat who pulled hard when well held on Wetherby hurdle debut 18 days ago. May do better with a hood now applied.

25/1
Well held in 3 minor events on Flat. Sold from David Menuisier for only 1,000 gns in October, so others make more appeal on this switch to hurdling.

5/2
Fairly useful performer on Flat, stays 1¾m. Sold from Andrew Balding for 110,000 gns in October, so very much one to note now going hurdling. Has been gelded since last seen.

Fair Flat winner who ended 2020 with gutsy win in 1m handicap at Newmarket in October. Backed but jumped poorly and well beaten on hurdles debut at Plumpton on Wednesday.

8/1
Stepped up on hurdling debut form sent chasing when second of 6 in minor event at Maure-De-Bretagne (18.9f, soft) 81 days ago. First run for yard after leaving Francois Nicolle. May well do better.

10/1
Fairly useful on Flat, stays 1¼m. Made little impact in that sphere in 2020, but he's a brother to a useful hurdler, so is worth a look now switching to obstacles for a new yard (had wind op).

10/1
Fair ex-Irish 11f Flat winner who hinted at promise on hurdling bow when seventh of 8 in Cheltenham juvenile 33 days ago. May well do better, so no forlorn hope.

8/1
Fair 1m winner on Flat for Tom Clover who showed an aptitude for hurdling when second of 14 over C&D last month, staying on despite flashing tail under pressure. Which way he goes remains to be seen.

Betting

Forecast

Punctuation (5/2), Caldwell (11/2), Balkardy (6/1), Saint Palais (8/1), Wise Eagle (8/1), Rains Of Castamere (8/1), Simply True (10/1), Salamanca School (10/1), El Jefe (16/1), Lanval (25/1), Masterdream (33/1)

Verdict

PUNCTUATION was the highest rated of these on the Flat, so there's every chance he could prove a class apart if taking to this new discipline. Balkardy made an encouraging start at Warwick and should do better, as should Caldwell.
