Impressive winner of a Warwick bumper on debut in January so shade underwhelming he failed to land a blow on return/hurdles bow here (15.7f) last month. However, surely better to come from him.

Well held sole bumper start but better for hurdles debut when third in a C&D novice last month, that despite being badly hampered 2 out. May do better again, particularly over further.

€100,000 purchase who showed a bit on bumper debut in January and clear signs of greenness getting in the way of progress on hurdles bow in October (ran out last). Undoubtedly remains with potential.

£32,000 3-y-o. Dam point winner. Represents leading connections ahead of Rules/hurdling debut and he's well worth close market scrutiny for clues.

Fairly useful Flat performer in Germany but was off over 2 years and very little to shout about in 2 starts so far this winter. Low-grade handicaps may be more his bag later on.

Cloudings gelding who proved easy to back and was ultimately well held in a Warwick bumper last December. Switched yards for £12,000 subsequently and this should reveal more.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

An interesting opener with several holding claims. NICKELSONTHEDIME has twice shaped well over hurdles for his present stable and looks sure to be in the mix with the potential for better still. I'm So Busy, on debut for Dr Newland, Here Comes McCoy and facile point scorer Tallow For Coal head up the dangers.

Betting Forecast
