No real impact in 3 bumpers and not seen since May so easy to look elsewhere on hurdles debut.

From a successful family and has shown plenty in a couple of bumpers and when third of 12 in novice at Warwick (19f, soft) on hurdles bow 24 days ago. Likely more to come yet.

18/1
Fairly useful bumper winner who was well backed when making a bright start over hurdles in Worcester maiden in September. Below that level at Warwick since, however, and faces a stiffer task now.

Won sole start in bumpers and posted encouraging second of 8 in novice at Aintree (20f, good to soft, 4/1) on debut over timber last month. Should improve and is a likely contender.

Didn't offer a great deal in a bumper at Newton Abbot earlier this year and got no further than first flight on debut in this sphere at Exeter recently.

Cost £180,000 after making a winning point debut but looked in need of experience when fifth of 10 in bumper at Taunton (16.5f, heavy) on NH bow in March. May be one for longer term.

Minor promise in brace of hurdle outings last term but amiss (reported to have irregular heartbeat) on Chepstow return last month and can only be watched here.

3/1
Warwick bumper winner who built on his promising hurdles bow when 7½ lengths fifth of 8 in Dovecote Novices' Hurdle at Kempton (16f, good to soft) in February. In good hands and sets the standard on form. Had wind operation.

Forecasts

Stay Away Fay (15/8), Heezer Geezer (5/2), Russian Ruler (3/1), Egbert (7/1), Off To A Flyer (14/1), I'd Like To Know (14/1), Everyonesgame (18/1), Dirham Emirati (25/1), American Legacy (100/1), Ron Burgundy (125/1), Mr Mars Man (250/1), Allanah's Boy (250/1)

Verdict

RUSSIAN RULER is clearly well thought of and should have plenty more to offer this term, particularly over this longer trip. He can open his account over hurdles. Heezer Geezer and Egbert head the list of dangers in what should prove an informative contest.
