17/2
Lightly raced on Flat for Mick Channon, fair form at best. Has joined a successful NH yard and is a half-brother to a fairy useful hurdler, so well worth a market check.

Off the mark in bumpers at second attempt at Exeter in February, but finished a remote third on hurdles debut at Kempton on Monday.

Showed useful form when placed in bumpers last term for Noel Williams. Not so good this season but has been found a a weak race for hurdling debut and looks the way to go. Tongue tied.

Fair 4-time winner at up to 2m on the Flat for Sir Mark Prescott. Bought for 32,000 gns but offered little encouragement sent hurdling for new yard when pulled up at Warwick in February.

Forecasts

Step To The Top (5/6), Roko George (11/8), Belle Jour (5/1), Dock Of The Bay (17/2), Pleasure Garden (50/1), Sunday Shoes (100/1)

Verdict

STEP TO THE TOP has shown a decent level of form in bumpers and looks the way to go with both Roko George and Belle Jour disappointing at Kempton on Monday. Dock of The Bay, a lightly-raced performer on the Flat, has joined a respected NH yard and can follow the selection home.

  1. STEP TO THE TOP (IRE)
  2. DOCK OF THE BAY
  3. ROKO GEORGE (IRE)
