This should throw up plenty of future winners. JETAWAY JOEY seemed to benefit from these aids when winning at Perth in April and that form should be good enough here. Jet Plane ought to be suited by this longer trip and is next best.
NEW TO PADDY POWER?
Last week’s Newton Abbot winner, TEN PAST MIDNIGHT (NAP), is ahead of the game and also has a good effort over course and distance to his name. He can follow up, with Karakoram the most obvious danger although market support for handicap debutant Benito could be worth heeding.
This looks very likely to fall to one of the promising newcomers to hurdling. Credo and Tweed Skirt are obvious contenders and are preferred in that order. LADY ADARE looked good when landing her only bumper and is given the nod.
Magic Dancer was a revelation on last week’s belated chasing debut and could take some beating after that. Fast Buck is interesting but his former trainer, Paul Nicholls, may hold the answer with FLIC OU VOYOU – a consistent hurdler and likely to prove at least as good over fences.
Preference is for last year’s runner-up JOLY MAKER, who has been as good as ever in two of his last three starts and still looks feasibly treated off 3lbs higher than for his near miss at Bangor last month.
Caro Des Flos made it fourth time lucky over fences with his clear-cut win at Worcester in June and is a big danger if he can pick up where he left off. Most of the others have plenty to prove, but Irish point winner Croagh Patrick is still lightly raced and looks interesting back up in trip on his handicap/chase chase debut.
Pull Again Green won at Wexford in March and is respected under a penalty on his stable debut. Point bumper winner Tango Pete looks interesting on his rules debut, while Larusso has shown promise at Stratford in his last two starts but there are also several interesting newcomers in the line-up.
Both Steal My Sunshine and Captain Claude look the part on paper, but the vote goes to ABUFFALOSOLDIER, who is out of a half-sister to two bumper winners and represents a yard with a 36% record in bumpers here in recent years.
Although he didn’t live up to market expectations on his debut last November, DUKE OF ROCKINGHAM might be good enough to beat ex-Irish pointer The Texan.
