Quickly made into a fairly useful hurdler last season, signing off with win in 21f novice here. Goes chasing now and warrants lots of respect.

Fairly useful form when scoring over hurdles at Catterick in January but only seventh of 9 in bumper (6/4) at Newcastle only run since. Goes over fences now and needs to hit the ground running.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Preference in an intriguing chase is for MR MULDOON who signed off for last term with a ready hurdle win at Ascot and is fancied to go in at the first time of asking over fences for the in-form Dr Richard Newland team. Informateur is another greatly respected fencing debutant along with Swaffham Bulbeck who represents last year's winning connections and is a dual course winner over hurdles too.

Betting Forecast
