Consistent but made hard work of justifying 1-5 odds to get off the mark at Newton Abbot and then beaten at 4-11 there last week; again has leading claims but comes with risks unless a visor (replacing cheekpieces) helps.

J: Jonjo O’Neill Jr

Triple hurdle winner this season; seemed to take form to whole new level when collecting recent Southwell handicap (3m, good) by 39l and has very obvious claims under 7lb penalty here; effective on good and soft ground.

Won the second of two Irish point starts (probably fortunate); sent off at 4-11 for this month's Market Rasen hurdle/stable debut but proved no match for the winner; cheekpieces quickly enlisted; should do better.

J: Sean Bowen

Point and dual hurdle winner with low mileage on the clock; dictated throughout and came home 20l clear in a 3m2f handicap at Warwick two weeks ago (soft); hit with a 10lb rise but could deal with that.

Worcester maiden winner in July; fair effort in a handicap there next time but well held (in blinkers for the first time) at the same track latest; this trip might help but he doesn't look one for maximum confidence.

Form & Verdict
Placed once from eight Irish point starts; both hurdle runs over C&D; tailed off in the first and then beaten less than 4l by only surviving rival in the second; probably unwise to take that literally.

Placed once from eight Irish points; all three runs over hurdles have been over the extended 2m5f at Fontwell on good ground this May/June, beaten just under 4l by the only other finisher on second occasion; that's not solid form but she makes this handicap debut off a lowly mark.

First foal from a bumper/low-grade hurdle winner; does not have a daunting standard to reach on this debut outing but is probably best watched all the same.
