Winning pointer who has made a fine start under Rules, landing a bumper/19.7f novice hurdle in good style. Will stay beyond 2½m and seems sure to do better.

Fair bumper performer who was suited by the step up in trip when making a successful debut in this sphere in a 2½m novice at Newcastle 25 days ago. Open to further improvement.

Made a winning debut in a small-field Carlisle bumper and shaped as if better for the run sent hurdling after 13 months off in a 2m novice at Hexham 48 days ago. Should do better in time.

Fair Flat winner who opened his hurdling account in 10-runner maiden at Sedgefield (19.9f) 15 days ago, though was fortunate to do so (looking held in second when left well clear 2 out).

Forecasts

Lesser (11/10), Rattle Owl (9/4), Gordon's Jet (4/1), Upandatit (5/1), Spantik (6/1), Lanty Slea (17/2), Grand Voyage (16/1), The Jad Factor (22/1), Don Brocco (66/1), Ballytobin (80/1), Pride Park (100/1), Nightvisitingsong (400/1), Shibuffy (400/1), Giamas (500/1)

Verdict

LESSER created a good impression when making a successful debut over hurdles at Wetherby in March and, with more to come now stepping up further in trip, he's fancied to defy a penalty and maintain his unbeaten record. Rattle Owl did the job nicely at Newcastle and is considered the main threat ahead of Gordon's Jet.
