7/2
Consistent maiden hurdler who's turn doesn't look far away based on an encouraging second at Plumpton 9 days ago, running on from a less-than-ideal position. Very much one to consider.

9/2
Ex-pointer who showed ability in bumpers and kept on nicely for third on last month's hurdling bow. Didn't quite back it up at Ffos Las but remains with potential now switched to handicaps.

5/1
Fair hurdler who is on a reasonable mark but has failed to see things out the last twice, below form when only fifth in a handicap at Huntingdon last time.

10/1
Fairly useful hurdler at best but hard to warm to his exploits over fences/hurdles so far this term. However, did at least halt the slide when midfield at Warwick (21f) 37 days ago.

Age: 4|  Weight: 11-6| J: Thomas Bellamy| T: A King| OR:  106
20/1
Fair maiden on Flat (stays 1¼m) who failed to improve from positive hurdling debut last season and as down the field on level at Salisbury last time. Others preferred.

25/1
Fair 1¼m Flat winner who matched that level on the second of three hurdling outings in late 2019. In reasonable heart back on the level this year but mark demands improvement.

50/1
Failed to go on from a mildly encouraging Rules debut last season and returns from 10 months with improvement to find, so hard to make a case for.

Glimpse Of Goldt15

9/2
Proved as good as ever to cash in on a handy mark on debut for this stable at Uttoxeter and has remained in good form since, better than ever when second at Huntingdon last time. Solid claims.

13/2
Fairly-useful Flat performer who got off the mark at third attempt over hurdles in novice at Lingfield (19.5f) in January. Well held in handicaps since, though.

Age: 4|  Weight: 11-0| J: B S Hughes| T: Miss J A Camacho| OR:  100
12/1
Just modest form to this point over hurdles but shaped encouragingly on debut for this stable on the Flat recently, so there's scope for some progress back in this sphere.

Betting

Forecast

Jackson Hill (7/2), Glimpse Of Gold (9/2), Minella Beauty (9/2), Dream Machine (5/1), Cristal Spirit (13/2), St Lawrence Gap (10/1), Glorious Dane (12/1), Kings Royal Hussar (20/1), Uther Pendragon (25/1), Ah Well (50/1)

Verdict

JACKSON HILL stayed on well only to be denied by one that had the run of things at Plumpton recently and, provided there's a solid gallop for him to aim at, he's fancied to belatedly open his account. The less-exposed Minella Beauty is a danger on handicap debut and Glorious Dane warrants consideration on his first outing for Julie Camacho in this sphere.
