Off the mark with 100/1 success in 19.2f novice hurdle here in March. Not impossible he could do better again now handicapping up in trip.

Fair 2m winning hurdler but he's been out of sorts in handicaps over both sets of obstacles. His mark has dropped plenty at least and he now sports blinkers.

Showed fair form when third in a Plumpton novice hurdle in January 2019 but disappointing in handicaps since, dropping in the weights all the while.

Fair on the Flat and has shown quite a bit over hurdles, this longer trip likely to suit him here. He can go well off a reduced mark.

Off the mark in 2m Ffos Las conditionals' handicap hurdle in February and back to form when second at Plumpton last time. Probably best over shorter.

Useful NH pedigree but is underachieving in handicaps, no real threat once the race began in earnest at Stratford (26.4f) last time.

Fairly useful dual bumper winner. Struggled after 4 months off at Plumpton but remains lightly raced and cheekpieces go on now. Could be a player off a reduced mark.

Some promise in handicaps, notably over C&D in December, and might have a race in her when it all falls right.

Modest hurdler/chaser who ran no sort of race after 15 months off over fences at Huntingdon 7 weeks ago. Blinkers go on.

Little impact over hurdles thus far but he's in good hands, his yard among the winners, and a bigger performance could be forthcoming at some point.

Has fallen a long way in the weights and offered some encouragement on first outing since leaving Christian Williams at Plumpton (17.8f) last month. One to note up in trip.

Verdict

BALLYDOYLE leaves the impression he has a bigger effort in him over hurdles over this sort of trip and he's chanced in a wide-open handicap. Josie Abbing and Good Bye are a couple of the other interesting contenders.

  1. BALLYDOYLE (GER)
  2. JOSIE ABBING (IRE)
  3. GOOD BYE (GER)
