Didn't set the world alight in a pair of bumpers but made a winning start over hurdles after 6 months off at Hexham and even better form when third under a penalty at Bangor. Sets a clear standard.

Showed promise on the first of 2 starts in bumpers last season and made a winning start over hurdles at Kempton after 8 months off despite some novicey jumping late on. More needed under a penalty.

Modest in bumpers but showed a bit switched to hurdles after 6 months off when fifth at Aintree and will probably do better at some stage.

Forecasts

Bob's Bar (3/1), Godrevy Point (10/3), Lyrical Genius (7/2), Etincelle Artiste (4/1), Gentleman Valley (6/1), Thai Terrier (10/1), Tiny Tantrum (20/1)

Verdict

BOB'S BAR sets a clear standard and is taken to defy a penalty with the step up in trip likely to suit. Etincelle Artiste and Lyrical Genius are a couple of interesting hurdling debutants to keep an eye on.

  1. BOB'S BAR (IRE)
  2. ETINCELLE ARTISTE (FR)
  3. LYRICAL GENIUS (IRE)
