AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 1 Kelso 12:33 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 23f

2381 Gaillimh A Stor
Successful on second of 2 starts in Irish points and looked potentially useful in getting off the mark at just the second time of asking over hurdles at Ayr (20.4f) in March, forging clear. Open to further improvement over this longer trip and can defy a penalty.
11-7Danny McMenaminN W Alexanderlocked1.63/12/123
235 Salvino
Successful pointer who was placed on both his starts in bumpers and matched the pick of his maiden form after 6 months off when runner-up on his handicap debut at Carlisle (20f) 23 days ago, just failing. Leading player.
11-0Bruce LynnSandy Thomsonlocked3/11.38/154
242 Ballyporeen
Steady progress in a trio of Irish bumpers for J. J. Lambe in May/June and shaped with clear promise sent hurdling when just failing in a Wetherby novice (19.7f) 24 days ago. Open to improvement.
11-0Brian HughesRebecca Menzieslocked4.5/16.5/144
2024 No But I Will
£50,000 5-y-o, Telescope gelding. Half-brother to modest hurdler Rock On Tommy. Dam (h111), unreliable 2½m-3m hurdle winner (stayed 27f), also 11f-1¾m winner who stayed 2m on Flat. Won sole start in Irish points (Apr 17, only 2 finishers). Needs a market check.
11-0Craig NicholOliver Greenall & locked7.5/16/120
317 Reve De Niamh
Telescope mare who shaped with some encouragement when runner-up on only outing for Fergal O'Brien in Taunton bumper back in January. Upped in trip and found only one too good again on Sedgefield hurdling debut last month, albeit no match for winner. That form is hardly solid, though.
10-7Sean QuinlanIain Jardinelocked9/140/1344
1743 Community Rebel
Asian Heights gelding. Brother to poor chaser Abbey Street and point winner Well Travelled. Dam unraced. Successful on last of 4 starts in Irish points (May 15). Market can guide on Rules debut.
11-0Callum BewleyJames Ewartlocked22/122/10
06 Something Golden
Dylan Thomas gelding. Half-brother to poor hurdler Cottonvale, stayed 3¼m. Dam unraced. Wears hood.
11-0Miss Ailsa McClungIain Jardinelocked35/1150/1329

Race 2 Kelso 13:08 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 17f

2432 Netywell
Promising novice hurdler who signed off for last term with stylish win in 2m Wetherby maiden in March. Very much the sort to go on over fences and he's a most interesting chasing debutant.
11-12Stephen MulqueenLucinda Russelllocked2/12.25/113
145 Edmond Dantes
Made a successful chase debut at Market Rasen in February and continued in good form after, including when staying-on fourth of 8 in handicap over C&D on his return 14 days ago. Considered.
11-0Brian HughesRuth Jeffersonlocked2.75/12.5/19
233 Wheelbahri
C&D winner who enjoyed a terrific 2021/22 campaign when a four-time scorer. Looked rusty on his return when sixth of 7 at Carlisle 23 days ago and no surprise to see him take a big step forward here.
11-9Sam ColtherdStuart Coltherdlocked4/14.5/113
5421 Fantastic Rock
Is proving expensive to follow and was a beaten favourite for the third time in succession when third in novice hurdle at Perth (20.2f) 18 months ago. Returns for his chasing debut with others preferred.
12-0Ryan ManiaSandy Thomsonlocked4.5/14.5/10
2194 Here We Have It
Scored at Leicester in February but ended the season with a poor run at Wetherby following month. Back from a wind op now with a bit to prove.
11-8Lewis DobbL J Morganlocked9/17.5/117
There are 5 runners in this race.

Race 3 Kelso 13:43 Handicap Chase (Class 3) 22f

287 Crixus's Escape
11-5NON-RUNNERGillian Boanaslocked0
2158 Broadway Joe
Made a fine start over fences last term, winning his first 3 races in novice handicaps (including here) and beaten by some well-treated rivals after. Can go well again on return.
11-5Danny McMenaminN W Alexanderlocked4/15.5/138
285 Breaking The Ice
Enjoyed a splendid first season over fences, completing a course hat-trick here over further, and picked up where he left off with victory at Hexham 4 weeks ago. This is tougher up 7 lb but he must demand respect.
11-5Jonathon BewleyGeorge Bewleylocked4/14/10
3226 Fete Champetre
Fairly useful hurdles winner and similar form over fences in 3 runs at the end of last year, not jumping too great the last twice. Could have more to offer if improving in that department and has won at Kelso on his return for the last 2 seasons.
11-5Craig NicholRose Dobbinlocked5/15.5/110
2442 Dalyotin
Dual chase winner in France and, after a couple of spins over hurdles, opened his account for current yard in good style back over fences at Sedgefield in March. Raised 7 lb but he could have more to offer for this stable. Contender if primed after 8 months off.
12-0Brian HughesRebecca Menzieslocked5.5/18/145
284 Avoid De Master
In fine form during the spring, bagging handicap chases at Hexham (3m) and Market Rasen. Creditable return over hurdles at the former track 4 weeks ago and worth a look back chasing.
11-6Sam ColtherdSusan Corbettlocked7/111/157
1863 Sirwilliamwallace
No more than averagely treated on balance but did sign off in the spring with a couple of respectable efforts. Could be other days for him.
11-9Ryan ManiaSandy Thomsonlocked7.5/14/147
349 Exit To Where
Back to winning ways in C&D handicap chase in May but has struggled since and will find easier openings.
10-10Derek FoxIain Jardinelocked10/15/150
2551 Up Helly Aa King
Looked about as good as ever under a cool ride when scoring at Doncaster (3m) on final start last season. Has won fresh so couldn't be dismissed on return under good conditional.
12-0Bruce LynnN W Alexanderlocked14/112/114
There are 9 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 4 Kelso 14:18 Handicap Hurdle (Class 3) 26f

145 Brandy McQueen
Improved for the step up to staying distances in the spring, scoring at Perth and over C&D. Good efforts both starts since, runner-up here a fortnight ago, and another bold showing is expected.
11-1Craig NicholHarriet Graham & locked2.5/12.5/10
1864 Stoney Rover
Going the right way when last seen 6 months ago, scoring cosily at Ayr. More to come if he's tuned up, so merits plenty of respect.
11-7Ryan ManiaSandy Thomsonlocked2.75/16/1118
1843 Theme Tune
Perfect start over hurdles in 2020/21, winning in the mud at Ludlow and Carlisle. Progress stalled since but he's potentially well treated starting out for an in-form stable (has left Jonjo O'Neill).
11-7Bruce LynnN W Alexanderlocked5/12.75/145
147 Tomorrow's Angel
Course winner who wasn't discredited when mid-field in a 13-runner event over C&D a fortnight ago. No forlorn hope.
10-13Sean QuinlanTristan Davidsonlocked5.5/17.5/136
131 Kaizer
Enjoyed a fine first half to 2022 and, while he's not been in top form this term, it's dangerous to dismiss him at a track where he boasts a good record.
12-0Dylan JohnstonEwan Whillanslocked10/13.5/165
1682 Ratfacemcdougall
Healthy strike rate in this sphere, but he has plenty to prove following a string of poor efforts. Left Fergal O'Brien since last seen 168 days ago.
11-13Max KendrickD J Jeffreyslocked12/133/1175
148 Chanceanotherfive
Fair winning hurdler/chaser who is on a reduced mark and took a step back in the right direction when eighth over C&D last time, so he's not one to write off.
10-13Sam ColtherdStuart Coltherdlocked22/120/19
386 Seemingly So
Better over fences and can't really be trusted to give his running in that sphere, so others make more appeal.
11-0Patrick CowleyL J Morganlocked25/118/128
There are 8 runners in this race.

Race 5 Kelso 14:53 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 23f

2381 Ned Tanner
Opened his account in novice at this track last December and well backed to double his tally on his second start in handicaps at Ayr in March, impressing with the way he went through the race. Rates an interesting chasing debutant and any further rain would only help.
12-0Sean QuinlanN W Alexanderlocked2/11.38/131
3344 Brayhill
Made a winning hurdling debut at Carlisle back in spring 2021 and having ran out approaching the last next time, showed no sign of waywardness when third on handicap debut at Musselburgh 11 months ago. Had wind op since and this winning Irish pointer could well have a say in proceedings.
11-12Brian HughesJames Ewartlocked3/13.5/117
346 Castletown
Still not one to trust fully but he has found some consistency since joining this yard, following small-field C&D win in May with a series of creditable efforts in defeat (including over timber here last month). Could prove vulnerable to younger legs today.
10-12Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked5/12.12/158
2105 Devour
Won first start in a handicap over hurdles at Wetherby in October 2020. Largely below form over timber since, though been more encouraging signs on both outings over fences (runner-up at Newcastle in April). Could put that experience to good use.
11-3Sam ColtherdSusan Corbettlocked5/112/1140
5662 Leostar
Fairly useful hurdler who put up a career best when landing an uncompetitive event over 20.9f here back in March 2021. Similar form when runner-up at Ayr 3 weeks later but not seen since so watching brief advised on yard/chase debut.
12-0Craig NicholEwan Whillanslocked16/125/156
There are 5 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 6 Kelso 15:24 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 21f

3761 Gentleman De Mai
Irish point runner-up from the family of Bristol de Mai made a winning start under Rules in 9-runner novice hurdle at Ayr just over a year ago. Open to significant improvement and should take the beating if ready to roll.
12-0Craig NicholRose Dobbinlocked2.5/13/120
21011 Post Chaise
Won a strong race for this grade at Hereford on penultimate outing last season and proved he could be competitive from this mark when second of 11 in handicap hurdle at Newcastle (23.7f, good, 2/1) on final start. Trip may be on sharp side but he's a leading player.
10-13Fergus GregoryOliver Greenall & locked3.5/12.25/136
2225 Perfect Man
Course winner. Fifteen runs since last win in 2020 but came close to taking advatage of sliding mark when second of 7 in handicap hurdle at Hexham (20.1f, good to soft, 10/1) last time. Remains potenetially well treated.
11-11Miss Becky SmithMicky Hammondlocked9/120/1122
238 Azof Des Mottes
Disappointed on return from breathing op when only ninth of 13 in handicap hurdle at Carlisle (17.2f, good to soft, 9/2) 23 days ago. Fair mark on pick of last year's form but bit to prove now.
11-2Jonathon BewleyGeorge Bewleylocked11/110/19
1612 Coral Blue
Failed to come on for recent return when fifth of 11 in handicap hurdle at Carlisle (20f, heavy) 16 days ago but is edging back towards a competitive mark.
10-11Ross ChapmanDaragh Bourkelocked11/112/19
342 Pavlik
In process of shaping well when falling on hurdles debut at Aintree and confirmed that promise when second at Hexham on next start. Unable to get involved from well off pace last time and capable of better now handicapping over longer trip.
11-13Ryan ManiaSandy Thomsonlocked12/112/10
129 Bestiarius
Largely consistent from this sort of mark in first half of this year but hasn't been at his best in a pair of starts since returning from a summer break. Others preferred.
11-1Sean QuinlanGillian Boanaslocked14/17.5/146
13813 Mauritian Bolt
Largely disappointing over hurdles, failing to make any impact in a trio of starts this summer. Opposable again.
10-5Callum BewleyRuth Jeffersonlocked14/118/129
166 Golden Robin
Eleven runs since last win in 2020. Little show in a pair of starts for this yard, most recently when eighth of 12 in handicap hurdle at Carlisle (20f, heavy) 16 days ago.
11-11Sam ColtherdSusan Corbettlocked14/122/157
24410 Knocknamona
Better known as a chaser, scoring over fences at Newcastle last season. Overall recent profile isn't hugely inspiring and it's possible he's just on the downgrade now.
11-0Aidan MacdonaldMicky Hammondlocked16/166/1313
164 Balkalin
Opened his account at the thirteenth attempt as a hurdler in 6-runner novice (16.2f) here last month. Not disgraced under penalty when fourth at Carlisle last time, so isn't fully ruled out.
11-12Stephen MulqueenMaurice Barneslocked20/114/130
2573 You Some Boy
Landed hat-trick between December and January last season but found life tougher from higher mark on final start last term. Could prove more competitive with rider's 5 lb claim offsetting chunk of the rise.
11-12Aaron AndersonRebecca Menzieslocked22/114/136
3117 Fortcanyon
Ran to fair level when fourth in Newcastle maiden last December and reportedly suffered from breathing problem over markedly longer trip here next time. Remains likely to be suited by this sort of trip and is an interesting handicap debutant.
