Verdict

Some nice types in this with some useful bumper/hurdles form asking to be compared to those switching from the Flat for their first jumping experience. Two that fit neatly into that last category are Winston C and Kyllachy Gala both of whom could be useful in this sphere based on their Flat ratings and should be respected here. Flash The Steel looks one of the better ones with hurdling experience and his Bangor race looks as though it could work out well while the only hurdles winner in the field Brecon Hill faces a stiff task under a penalty. BREWIN'UPASTORM is well regarded by his trainer (cost £250,000) and his bumper form catches the eye and he’s sure to be better over hurdles.
  1. Brewin'upastorm
  2. Kyllachy Gala
  3. Flash The Steel
