11/8
Irish point winner. Placed in bumpers last season and made it 2 from 2 in his completed start over hurdles in 13-runner novice at Huntingdon (19.6f) 30 days ago, staying on well. Open to further improvement.

Closely related to useful hurdler Easy As That and landed a Fontwell bumper in good style on his debut in February. Left Anthony Honeyball for £26,000 after and maintained his unbeaten record sent hurdling at Plumpton (15.9f) 36 days ago, finding plenty. Better to come now moving up in trip.

10/1
Placed on 2 of 3 starts in Irish points and fairly useful form when second of 4 in a Bangor bumper on Rules debut. Ran below level sent hurdling when third at Newcastle (16.9f) on Boxing Day but should do better.

Fair Flat winner who showed an aptitude for hurdling when fourth in 14-runner Newcastle novice (16.9f) 18 days ago. Likely to improve with that run under his belt but probably more one for handicaps in due course.

Unpromising in Irish points and well held completed start over hurdles.

Looks one for handicaps later on.

Failed to meet expectations when well backed on his sole outing in bumpers and safely held on his Newcastle hurdling debut 18 days ago. Should do better in time.

Made frame second start in points and Irish bumper efforts for John Halley weren't devoid of promise but well held completed starts in novice hurdles.

Fairly useful on Flat (stays 2m), shaped as if amiss last time (stable debut). Could get back on track over hurdles. Tongue tied.

Fair maiden on Flat (stays 12.5f) but down the field both starts over hurdles.

Didn't offer much in 2 bumpers last season but showed a bit more sent hurdling after 11 months off (had breathing op) when fourth in 7-runner C&D novice 24 days ago, going in snatches. Will be of more interest in handicaps later on.

Irish point winner who was third in his only bumper and showed a bit sent hurdling after 21 months off (had breathing operation) at Hereford. Should be capable of better.

Came good at the third time of asking in bumpers at Carlisle (17.2f, heavy) in October, displaying a good attitude. Showed a lot more than on hurdles debut when second at Wetherby (19.7f) on Boxing Day and has to enter calculations.

Forecasts

Supreme Gift (11/8), Howlingmadmurdock (7/4), Perculator (11/2), Blue Fin (10/1), Starevitch (11/1), Parelliroc (16/1), Carrigillihy (22/1), Maketh Believeth (33/1), Lovin Jukebox (80/1), Prospect House (80/1), Hashehadhisoatsyet (150/1), Paramaribo (150/1), Syltezar (150/1), Magic Mike (200/1), Court Justice (200/1)

Verdict

There was plenty to like about how much HOWLINGMADMURDOCK found for pressure at Plumpton and he's fancied to maintain his unbeaten record with the longer trip promising to suit. Supreme Gift and Perculator are obvious threats.
