Modest maiden on Flat who stepped up markedly on his opening run over hurdles when springing a surprise at Leicester. Found out in a e better race at Cheltenham last month.

Fair on Flat, stays 13.5f, running right up to form when runner-up last time. No stamina worries now hurdling for in-form yard.

Fairly useful on Flat, stays 1¾m. Sold from Andrew Balding for 110,000 gns in October and gelded ahead of hurdles debut, dam half-sister to untrustworthy but fairly useful hurdler Kalambari.

50/1
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).

Fairly useful on Flat, stays 1m, improved when second last time. Wouldn't be a certain stayer on pedigree and is tongue tied for the first time, but he is in top hands.

Half-brother to fairly useful hurdler Quids In (2m winner). Useful on Flat, stays 10.5f, run best excused last time: sold from Harry Dunlop 170,000 gns in October. Likely type.

Raced 3 times on the Flat in France for M. Delzangles, successful in a claimer in June. Given a considerate ride on hurdles debut at Kempton and she can build on that, but certainly needs to.

Forecasts

Tritonic (5/4), Vulcan (13/8), Casa Loupi (15/2), Punctuation (12/1), Stepney Causeway (14/1), Hooroo (40/1), Tenfold (40/1), Salamanca School (50/1), Sarceaux (66/1), Blue Slate (100/1)

Verdict

Despite failing to win on the level last year, TRITONIC cranked his form up a notch, consistently running to a useful level and representing a yard with few peers in this division, he is a very exciting hurdles recruit. Vulcan was pretty good on the Flat himself, and as a half-brother to a fairly useful hurdler, hopes are high that he will take the discipline.
