Fairly useful bumper performer, standout effort when 1½ lengths fourth of 7 to Good Risk At All at Cheltenham. Out of depth in Aintree Grade 2 last time and faces a stiff task on hurdle debut.

Smart bumper performer last term, winning a brace of listed events, including over C&D. Badly needed the experience when turned over at short odds on Chepstow hurdle bow and seems sure to do better.

Showed fair form when reaching the frame in 2 bumpers but finished a well-beaten fourth on Lingfield hurdles debut (19.5f) 26 days ago. Should do better in time.

Brother to 4 winners and made the ideal start when landing a 14-runner course bumper. Below that form in Grade 2 event at Aintree next time, but he should still have a decent future over jumps.

Bother to top-class hurdler/chaser Douvan. Cost £540,000 following a point win and quickened clear in good style to making a winning bumper bow over C&D in March. Very exciting prospect.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

JONBON created a deep impression when readily landing a C&D bumper in the spring, and although it was a case of style over substance, he very much appeals as the type to take high rank in the novice hurdle division this season. This is no walk in the park though, with Good Risk At All and Boombawn both interesting contenders, especially the former who boasts some very strong bumper form.

Betting Forecast

66/1 Jack's A Legend, 9/2 Good Risk At All (Fr), 100/1 Ange Endormi (Ire), 20/1 Charlie's Glance, 4/9 Jonbon (Fr), 8/1 Boombawn (Ire), 200/1 Leading Man (Ire), 66/1 Island Run
