Coral Bet Bundles 'National Hunt' Maiden Hurdle (3) Class 3

  • Distance: 2m 69y
  • Age: 4yo
  • Runners: 12
  • Prize: £12,000

Bought for 350,000 gns after winning his sole start in Irish points last December. Has had wind surgery ahead of this switch to hurdles. Very interesting runner for a top stable with a good record in this race.

Fair form when reaching the frame on all 3 bumpers last season. Should have a future over jumps but he starts out in what looks a warm race.

Travelled well when third in 2 bumpers this autumn. Brings plenty of potential to this hurdle debut.

Sixth in a bumper last November. Second in 2m Ludlow novice hurdle on her return but she was beaten 21 lengths. May do better, particularly if learning to settle, but she'll need to leave that bare form well behind.

13/11/21 Uttoxeter 6/13 Paul O'Brien Bumper 1m 7f 168y Gd/Sft H 11st 0lbs

Made the frame only once from 3 starts in Irish points and well beaten in novice hurdles 8 months apart.

23/02/22 Doncaster 4/6 Max Kendrick Hurdle 2m 128y Gd/Sft 11st 0lbs

Has shown promise when sixth in a Stratford bumper and Chesptow maiden hurdle nearly 8 months apart but he'll need to raise his game to play a prominent role here.

Winning start under Rules in a Fontwell bumper last month but comfortably held in a deeper race at Cheltenham 3 weeks later. Probably best watched now hurdling.

Went off at 20/1 but showed plenty of promise when second of 12 in a 17f Newton Abbot novice hurdle on debut 6 weeks ago. Open to improvement.

Has shown enough to think he has ability but he'll need to leave last month's Hereford hurdle debut form well behind to play a leading role here.

Showed ability when fourth in a bumper at Worcester for Fergal O'Brien but just poor form in a pair of maiden hurdles for this yard since. Outsider.

310,000 gns purchase after winning a point in Ireland in the spring. Could have a big say on Rules debut, particularly if the betting vibes are strong.

£27,000 half-brother to fairly useful hurdler/chaser Desirable Court (2m-2¾m winner and fair 23f chase winner Hills of Connemara. Betting should guide to expectations on debut.
