Bumper winner who has been placed all 6 starts in handicap hurdles, again looking like she'd prevail at Huntingdon (25f) on Boxing Day only to be edged out close home. Some risks there now.

Fairly useful in bumpers and quickly off the mark over hurdles, taking 20f Fakenham maiden last month. Could progress again now handicapping, with 3m sure to suit. One to consider.

Good NH pedigree and has looked a work in progress over hurdles this term. Up in trip for handicap debut and needs to jump a lot better.

Improving well over hurdles, following up his Newcastle success with a gutsy display to take another big-field C&D handicap last month. Conditional can claim this time and he must be considered.

Fell early at Kelso last month but plenty of promise previously and fair chance he's on a good mark now handicapping judged on bumper form. 3m sure to suit and has Brian Hughes up for the first time.

Has been catching the eye in novice/maiden hurdles and 3m will suit on handicap debut. Got to be respected.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

A few of these promise to do better now handicapping, RELEASE THE KRAKEN chief among them judged on his bumper form. The step up to 3m will suit and he makes plenty of appeal with Brian Hughes up for the first time. Tim Pat is another to consider, while the hat-trick seeking You Some Boy, a gutsy winner here over Christmas, must also be fancied.

Betting Forecast

100/1 Kildrum (Ire), 9/2 Flexi Furlough (Ire), 6/1 Conceroe (Ire), 15/2 Ashover Hills (Ire), 3/1 You Some Boy (Ire), 4/1 Release The Kraken (Ire), 13/2 Tim Pat (Ire)
