Classy novice hurdler On The Blind Side can be given the benefit of the doubt to some extent for not firing on his chase debut as it was an ultra-tough introduction at Cheltenham, though he was slow at the first fence and never really warmed to the task thereafter. Coming with considerably less risk is TALKISCHEAP (nap), who twice ran well behind top-notcher Le Bague Au Roi before making the most of a gilt-edged opening at Doncaster.[Alistair Jones]

Promising runs in hot novice events won by top-class Le Bague Au Roi on his first two chase starts before prevailing in a decent match at Doncaster, returning to 3m; going the right way and has very strong form credentials.

Smacked of a future star in winning a pair of Grade 2 novice hurdles (2m5f/2m4f) last season before failing favourite backers in a Grade 1 at Aintree; had wind surgery during his break but not many positives to take from his chase debut at Cheltenham, albeit in a red-hot Grade 2 over 2m4f; entitled to another chance and should stay 3m.

Tailed off behind On The Blind Side in his final run over hurdles; not strikingly progressive over fences as he was entitled to win his Exeter race and then dropped out rather disappointingly at Warwick (3m) the last time.

His novice hurdle win came over 3m on soft ground in first-time cheekpieces; headgear was left off for handicap/chase debut at Ascot and shaped better with the cheekpieces back on at Chepstow in a handicap he might well have won with cleaner jumping; wasn't foot-perfect first time either and these terms are tough.

Only 1-6 over hurdles and this is appreciably tougher than the 3m1f novice chase he won at Catterick, the form of which wasn't particularly franked when the second was third in a Uttoxeter handicap at the weekend; has to give 6lb to his stablemate On The Blind Side, who was way superior over hurdles.
