Comment: Useful chaser who built on earlier hurdling promise to easily land the odds in 8-runner novice over C&D 12 days ago. Hard to oppose despite a 7 lb penalty.

Comment: Placed both starts in bumpers at Ballinrobe (for Andrew Oliver) and here on return after 10 months off. Goes hurdling now up in trip so respected for top yard.

Comment: Fair winning stayer on Flat and not disgraced at Newmarket on return. Much respected having been considerately handled on hurdling debut back in February and is worth a check in the betting.

Comment: Fair hurdler at his best but he showed little on yard debut after 6 months off in handicap at Bangor (19.6f) on his return a week ago. Questions to answer now.

Comment: Poor hurdler but the step up in trip prodcued some improvement when third of 8 to Templepark in novice over C&D (100/1) 12 days ago. Respected.

Comment: Modest maiden on the Flat who has shown little in novice hurdles at Newton Abbot and Stratford since resumption. Easy to look elsewhere.

Comment: Maiden pointer who has looked limited on all his three starts in novice hurdles. Tongue strap on with others much preferred.

Bob Pebble (IRE)
9/4
TEMPLEPARK has already shown himself to be capable of useful form over fences so he is hard to side against after easily landing the odds over C&D when switched to hurdles last month. Noble Behest and Bob Pebble offer potential and are in excellent hands too so could be the ones to chase home Fergal O'Brien's favourite.
