5-y-o gelding who was placed both starts in points and showed ability when midfield in a 12-runner Catterick bumper (15.7f) last month. May well come forward from that now hurdling. Hood on.

Schiaparelli gelding who has shaped like a stayer in pair of bumpers/Catterick novice hurdle to date and he rates a likely type for later on.

Fair form in bumpers early in career and some promise on belated return/hurdles debut at Southwell (20.4f) in May. Not in same form at Newcastle in December though.

2/5
Third sole start in Irish points and smashing start over hurdles when second to Hillcrest in an Aintree novice (20f) in November. Not in same form at Warwick since but this looks a good opening.

Bumper winner who showed much more than on his debut in this sphere when fourth of 10 in a maiden at Newcastle (16.2f) in November, best work finish. One to keep an eye on for handicaps.

15/2
Point bumper winner (dead-heated) who has showed some promise in a pair of maiden hurdles at up to 17f this winter. Claims of hitting the frame on back of a wind op.

Showed ability when third on Carlisle hurdling debut in November but failed to build on that at same course since. Had wind operation.

Milan gelding who went down narrowly in an Ayr bumper (2m) in October 2020. Seemingly being brought along with handicaps in mind in a couple of novice/maiden hurdles this winter, though. Tongue tied.

Passing Glance mare who hasn't offered much short-term encouragement in a couple of bumpers 6 months apart. Passed over now attentions are switched to timber.

Has won a point but not a great deal of encouragement to glean from hurdle exploits to think she will land this. Likely type for low-grade handicaps.

Mahler mare. Won sole start in points (Mar 2020) but easy to back and offered little both starts over hurdles this winter.

Verdict

A runner-up behind the highly-progressive Hillcrest on hurdles debut at Aintree in November, OUR JET wasn't in quite the same form at Warwick next time. However, on the back of a wind op, he's fancied to get back on track and come out on top. Snowy Clouds, Cartonne and Seven Arches can make the frame.
