Minor promise in bumpers; others may know too much for him now hurdling but is bred to improve now he goes jumping so is worth watching for the future, perhaps when handicapping.

Point winner who was a promising third on his bumper debut in March 2021, and he was then absent until Hereford (2m, soft) last month where he was a 22l fifth of 14 on hurdle debut; improvement required but he may have needed that latest outing and is not ruled out.

Tuscan Rose

J: Liam Harrison

T: Neil Mulholland

9th foal; closely related to four winners including King's Odyssey (useful 2m4f-3m hurdle/chase), Sandymount Rose (useful 2m4f-3m hurdle/chase) and Irish Odyssey (bumper); dam 2m-2m4f hurdle/chase winner; stable has occasional success in these races.

66/1

Verdict

The King Of Ryhope is greatly feared but JOHNNYWHO could be a top prospect. He had none other than the Challow winner Hermes Allen trailing in his wake when winning his Irish point, and he really needs to be winning this as well to justify his Grade 1 entry at Cheltenham. Hunter Legend is the other one to bear in mind.[Alistair Jones]
