Bumper winner for Fergal O'Brien and made it 2-2 over hurdles/for this yard when readily landing the odds at Perth. Creditable third under a double penalty at Market Rasen but this asks for more.

Headstrong front runner who has quickly made up into a useful hurdler since the resumption, winning a brace of handicaps and a novice at Stratford (16.3f) last month. Sure to make another bold bid.

Returned from a long absence winning 2m novice hurdles at Southwell and Market Rasen this summer. Bit underwhelming when turned over at short odds at Uttoxeter since but can still play a part.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

FIDELIO VALLIS ended last season very much on the up and is open to further progress, so he makes plenty of appeal returning for a red-hot stable. Headstrong front runner For Pleasure conceded 10 lb to a pair of bumper winners at Stratford last month and will ensure the selection doesn't have it easy.

Betting Forecast

6/4 Fidelio Vallis (Fr), 15/2 Mrs Hyde (Ire), 2/1 For Pleasure (Ire), 66/1 Gorham's Cave, 6/1 Sangha River (Ire)
