Highly promising bumper winner who impressively landed odds in 19.4f novice at Chepstow on his hurdles bow 31 days ago, asserting quickly from 2 out. Exciting prospect, and very much the one to beat.

Made successful hurdling debut at Uttoxeter before taking his form up a notch in 19f Warwick novice, first past the post but demoted for bumping runner-up late on. Highly respected.

Yet to add to his Fontwell bumper win, but his form is on the up, excellent runner-up in 2m Newbury handicap on his return. Cheekpieces on now, and he shouldn't be underestimated back over further.

Showed fair form in a couple of bumpers and when fourth of 8 in 20f novice hurdle at Wetherby (25/1) 13 days ago. This demands a lot more, however.

Kayf Tara gelding who justified favouritism in 5-runner bumper at Southwell in May, showing signs of greenness but well on top late. Much respected now going hurdling for top yard.

Verdict

Paul Nicholls took this contest 12 months ago with Bravemansgame and he looks to have another very exciting prospect on his hands in STAGE STAR who is strongly fancied to add to his sparkling Chepstow victory. Bumpy Johnson's form is on an upward curve and he is rated next best with Nicky Henderson's newcomer Kincardine not taken lightly either in a fascinating opener.

  2. BUMPY JOHNSON (IRE)
  3. KINCARDINE
