Full result

Picked up for £115,000 after finishing second in a maiden point in December 2019. Well-fancied but asked to do far too much early when fourth in Uttoxeter bumper. Interesting hurdling debutant.

Ex-pointer who showed a bit before seemingly going amiss on Wetherby hurdling bow. Much more like it when second over C&D since, even if he was flattered by his proximity to the easy winner.

Showed a bit in a pair of bumpers back in 2018/19. Improved on his hurdles debut form when second at Hereford (19.7f) 4 weeks ago, left behind by winner straight but long way clear of rest.

Kayf Tara mare who has shown definite signs of ability in a pair of novice hurdles and is bred to be suited by this step up in trip, so not ruled out in an ordinary-looking contest.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

FISHKHOV shaped much better than the result in a Uttoxeter bumper, having been asked to do far too much early, so he looks the way to go making a quick switch to hurdling in an ordinary-looking contest. Pennyforapound was much improved when runner-up over C&D in November and can provide the main threat ahead of Representing Bob.

Betting Forecast

7/4 Fishkhov (Fr), 3/1 Pennyforapound (Ire), 5/1 Supervisor (Ire), 12/1 Miss Tara Moss, 13/2 Representing Bob (Ire), 80/1 Chance Finale (Fr), 100/1 Currabeha Hill (Ire), 40/1 Salopian Boy, 50/1 Annahalla Rebel (Ire)
