Global Citizen has the best hurdle form on offer after a good fifth to a promising novice at Aintree four weeks ago. He isn't sure to appreciate the drop in trip though and there are some interesting sorts in opposition. Grand Inquisitor and Eskendash are of some interest, but CLONDAW CASTLE showed a smart level of form in bumpers and can make a winning seasonal/hurdle debut.[Paul Smith]

Point winner 12 months ago; winning rules debut in Stratford bumper in March before acquitting himself with great credit in the Grade 2 bumper at the Grand National meeting; promising recruit to hurdling and of obvious interest.

Bought for 275,000GBP soon after winning Irish point debut in April; sent off at 1-2 in Worcester bumper on last month's return and beat his two rivals with plenty in hand; RPR of 120 when fifth to very useful prospect on hurdle debut 27 days ago; more to come in this sphere but drop to sharp 2m not sure to suit.

Useful Flat-racer who looked in excellent nick when scoring by 5l at York (extended 1m2f; RPR 95) last month; went without cheekpieces when fourth at Taunton on hurdle debut 24 days ago (odds-on favourite) and his finishing effort there was a shade disappointing; should do better at some stage but headgear is again missing.

Not as good as he was on the Flat but did resume winning ways at Ayr last month (1m, heavy); stamina won't be an issue and interesting to see if there's market interest in him now making his hurdle debut.
