10/11

Useful Flat performer who was well on top of a subsequent winner when opening his hurdles account at Southwell (15.8f) 27 days ago. Has to be well respected under a penalty.

15/8

Half-brother to numerous winners, including smart hurdler/very smart chaser Charbel. Shaped well when third in a decent-looking Thurles bumper on debut and looks a useful prospect for novice hurdles.

20/1

Fair ex-French hurdler. In process of running okay when falling last in a Southwell novice in July but weakened quickly there next time and again checked out tamely on his Flat debut at Chepstow.

12/1

Placed in a Fakenham bumper last October but that remains a big standout and has offered little all 4 starts on the Flat this year.

Well held in 2 bumpers last season so easy to oppose on this switch to hurdling.

13/2

Fair performer on Flat (stays 11.5f), winner twice this year and shaped as if still in good form last time. May sneak a place if taking to hurdling.

50/1

Modest and temperamental on the Flat. Showed a bit more than expected on recent hurdling debut at Southwell, but didn't last out.

Betting

Forecast

Leroy Leroy (10/11), Ajero (15/8), Songo (13/2), Handsome Samson (12/1), Doukarov (20/1), Just Once (50/1), Pointed Spear (200/1), Orbit Of Iolite (300/1)

Verdict

AJERO looks a useful prospect for novice hurdles after shaping well in a strong-looking Thurles bumper in February for Thomas Mullins and he's taken to prove too strong for Leroy Leroy, who shoulders a penalty for a decisive victory at Southwell.

  1. AJERO (IRE)
  2. LEROY LEROY
  3. DOUKAROV (FR)
