Race 1 Kelso 12:48 Novices Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

261 Chapel Green
Stepped up on his 2 runs in bumpers when second of 6 in novice hurdle at Ayr (16f, soft) on hurdles debut/reappearance 26 days ago, clear of rest. Should improve.
11-0Stephen MulqueenLucinda Russelllocked2/16.5/1225
2423 Coniston Clouds
Cloudings gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to bumper winner/useful hurdler (stays 3m) Gunfleet and useful hurdler (stayed 3m) Silver Eagle. Showed plenty when second of 5 in a Carlisle bumper on debut back in March, going with enthusiasm, and must enter calculations now sent over hurdles.
11-0Danny McMenaminNicky Richardslocked3.33/15/150
209 Arcandy
Had temperament issues in 4 runs last season but looked a reformed character after 7 months off when runner-up in a novice hurdle at Hexham (16.2f) 20 days ago. Needs to back that up now.
10-7Sam ColtherdStuart Coltherdlocked4.5/110/1122
314 Eloi Du Puy
Runner-up in a course bumper on debut. Not in the same form next time but offered something to work sent hurdling after 7 months off when third at Ayr (2m) 31 days ago, needing stiffer test. Open to improvement.
11-0Bruce LynnN W Alexanderlocked7/13.33/152
336 Ninetofive
Showed more than on debut when third of 9 in a bumper at Newcastle in March. Ran below that level when filling same spot on last month's C&D hurdling debut but he can do better, especially when tackling longer trips.
11-0Ryan ManiaSandy Thomsonlocked7.5/12/173
392 Chase A Fortune
Showed much improved form after 7 months off when runner-up in a Sedgefield bumper 39 days ago, seeming suited by the switch to front-running tactics with the hood left off. Can't be ruled out on hurdle debut.
11-0Sean QuinlanChris Grantlocked8/18/10
1910 Reve De Niamh
Runner-up on only outing for Fergal O'Brien in a Taunton bumper back in January but has run to just a modest level both starts over hurdles for current yard. Improvement needed.
10-7Conor O'FarrellIain Jardinelocked11/133/1200
198 Something Golden
Dylan Thomas gelding who offered little in a hood on his hurdling debut here 19 days ago. Down in trip.
11-0Miss Ailsa McClungIain Jardinelocked66/1100/152
257 So Many Roads
Down the field in a Haydock bumper and, although he has shaped a bit better than the distance beaten suggests on both starts over hurdles, he's likely to be of more interest in handicaps after this.
11-0Craig NicholDonald Whillanslocked80/120/175
There are 9 runners in this race.

Race 2 Kelso 13:20 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 21f

359 Rockmann
Off 20 months but very encouraging return to action when runner-up at Carlisle last month. Winner successful since and a major player from his modest mark.
10-8Jamie HamiltonMark Walfordlocked3/12.75/18
195 Bestiarius
Largely consistent from this sort of mark in first half of this year and right back on his game when finding only an unexposed sort too strong over C&D 3 weeks ago. Has to be considered from 2 lb higher.
11-7Tom MidgleyGillian Boanaslocked4/13.5/113
196 Azof Des Mottes
Disappointed on return from breathing op when only ninth of 13 in handicap hurdle at Carlisle last month. Slipped up before the race fully took shape here 19 days ago. Tongue tie on and this will reveal more.
11-6Jonathon BewleyGeorge Bewleylocked5/15/10
2268 Askgarmor
Point winner back in 2016 but lightly raced under Rules. Hit the frame on 4 of 5 outings this season so should be thereabouts once more.
10-8Harry ReedTristan Davidsonlocked7.5/19/120
87 Coral Blue
Catterick winner in March and just 1 lb above that successful mark. Step back in the right direction when fourth over C&D on penultimate start and he went off too hard ridden differently at Hexham last week.
11-0Ross ChapmanDaragh Bourkelocked10/16/140
272 Timetotalk
Placed a couple of times in bumpers. Low-key start over hurdles but handicaps much more suitable and he surely has a bigger performance in him.
11-12Craig NicholChris McSharrylocked10/120/1100
334 Duty Calls
Dual-point winner who opened his account under Rules at the eleventh attempt in a 17f handicap hurdle at Carlisle in February. Disappointing all 3 starts since, though he may have needed last month's return to action.
11-11Lorcan MurtaghSandy Forsterlocked12/114/117
261 Kalaharry
Fair handicap hurdler/chaser (successful at Hexham in May 2021). Looked very rusty over latter set of obstacles on October's return from 8 months off and this will reveal more.
12-2Dylan JohnstonEwan Whillanslocked14/122/157
3910 Bebside Banter
Looks very limited on early evidence.
10-7Sean QuinlanChris Grantlocked25/140/160
1533 Passnotalegend
Very lightly raced for his age and has rarely finished off a race with much purpose. Did shape quite well fitted with a hood over fences at Cartmel in June. Since had another breathing operation.
11-11William ShanahanSimon Waughlocked40/140/10
3111 Halcyon Dreams
Runner-up in a Ballinrobe handicap last summer but has failed to get competitive in 6 starts for current yard.
10-2Emma Smith-ChastonKatie Scottlocked50/110/180
1512 Nordic Express
Very little sign of ability and a long way out of the weights. Blinkers on.
10-2Conor O'FarrellIan Duncanlocked100/1150/150
There are 12 runners in this race.

Race 3 Kelso 13:55 Handicap Hurdle (Class 4) 26f

314 Hoganville
Winless following 9 attempts for Paul Nolan in Ireland but made a winning start for this yard at Hexham in September. Proved that no fluke when following up off 6 lb higher at Ayr (24.3f, good to soft) and a further 4 lb rise may not be enough to prevent him from going in again.
11-7Conor RabbittGeorge Bewleylocked2.75/11.75/136
338 Shoeshine Boy
Improved when switched to handicaps last term, runner-up 4 times on the bounce prior to deservedly opening his account at Ayr (24.3f, good to soft) in April. Failed to land a blow on C&D reappearance but entitled to come on for that and he's not ruled out.
11-0Henry BrookeDonald Whillanslocked6/15/117
2163 Glittering Love
Largely campaigned over fences in recent seasons, notching fifth success in that sphere at Carlisle last December. Runner-up on latest hurdles start in a Hexham novice (23.3f, good) in March and definite chance here off an attractive mark, provided he's ready to roll.
11-9Brian HughesNicky Richardslocked7/116/1129
197 You Some Boy
Landed hat-trick between December and January last season but recent reappearance effort here (21f, good to soft) was underwhelming, even allowing for the fact that he may have needed the run.
11-1Nathan MoscropRebecca Menzieslocked7/17/10
1799 Lissen To The Lady
Enhanced excellent record here when landing a 9-runner 22.7f handicap in good style during the spring. Below par both starts (also at this course) the following month, though, and she's yet to conclusively prove herself over 3m+.
11-0Miss J WaltonSandy Forsterlocked10/122/1120
421 Deluxe Range
Posted one of his better efforts when chasing home a highly progressive type at Hexham (23.3f, good to soft) in June. However, he was struggling a long way out with cheekpieces refitted (on again here) back from a break last month and is now 1-16 under Rules.
12-0Ryan ManiaSandy Thomsonlocked10/14/160
13712 Tartan Cookie
Responded well to first-time blinkers when landing a 23.7f Newcastle novice in February. Best effort since when third over this C&D in May but well held at Perth on latest start (since undergone a wind op) and cheekpieces now refitted.
10-10Danny McMenaminEwan Whillanslocked11/122/1100
1911 Fortcanyon
Ran to fair level when fourth in Newcastle maiden last December but he's failed to make an impact in 2 subsequent starts at this track, including on recent return/handicap debut here (21f, good to soft).
10-12Thomas WillmottSandy Forsterlocked18/114/122
276 Tough Out
Shaped pretty well first 2 starts in novice hurdles at around 2½m but subsequent efforts have left much to be desired.
11-6Jamie HamiltonJackie Stephenlocked22/112/145
2010 Jessiemac
Thorough stayer who needed every yard to score at Catterick (25.3f, good to soft) in January. Form has been rather up-and-down since (poor in 2 starts so far this season) and hopes here pinned on first-time cheekpieces helping to spark a return to form.
10-13Derek FoxIan Duncanlocked33/128/115
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 4 Kelso 14:28 Handicap Hurdle (Class 4) 23f

271 Miss Milano
Showed improved form to get off the mark in 11-runner handicap hurdle at Wetherby (21.2f) 27 days ago, always holding on. Up 5 lb but she's not taken lightly for yard among the winners.
12-0Conor RabbittNicky Richardslocked1.5/11.38/18
474 Without Conviction
Off 6 months before fair third of 5 in handicap chase at Hexham (20.1f) 47 days ago. Switches to hurdles and can't be discounted on her handicap debut.
11-7Alan DoyleLucinda Russelllocked3.5/14.5/129
2622 Jen's Georgie
Took her form up a notch when second in 2m6f novice hurdle at Wetherby in March. Weighted to go close on her handicap debut/return.
11-10Robert DunneSamuel Drinkwaterlocked4/17/175
317 September Daisy
Ended last term below par for Tom George but not disgraced for new yard after 9 months off when fading sixth of 15 in handicap hurdle at Ayr (19.5f) 31 days ago. Should buitd on that but she's 6 lb out of the handicap.
10-2Danny McMenaminN W Alexanderlocked6.5/14/138
86 Your Place
Remains a maiden after 16 runs. Pulled up in handicap hurdle at Hexham (20.1f) 8 days ago so she's hard to warm to with visor replacing usual cheekpieces.
10-6Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked16/17/156
1663 Maura Jeanne
Ex-Irish maiden who raced too freely in blinkers when eighth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Downpatrick (21.3f) in June on her final run for Colin McBratney. More needed on her yard debut.
11-8Conor O'FarrellIan Duncanlocked16/116/10
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 5 Kelso 14:58 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 23f

191 Brayhill
Winning Irish pointer who showed plenty over hurdles last season and made a successful switch to chasing in a C&D handicap recently. Another bold showing expected.
12-0Brian HughesJames Ewartlocked1.75/12.5/143
313 Tfou
Brought along steadily in bumpers/over hurdles last term but took a marked step forward when mowing down a gamble late on at Ayr on chasing/handicap debut a month ago. Will improve further for this longer trip, and makes plenty of appeal.
11-10Sean QuinlanNicky Richardslocked1.88/13/160
265 Destiny Is All
Won a couple of handicaps at Ayr last season and hit the ground running with a good second there on return. Likely to give another good account but could prove vulnerable to improvers.
11-2Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked4.5/13.5/122
254 Half Track
Fairly useful winning hurdler who got no further than the first sent chasing at Carlisle on return. Not one to write off.
11-8Danny McMenaminN W Alexanderlocked7/13/157
152 Stolen Money
Won all 3 starts over hurdles last season but rather disappointing start to chasing when only sixth in a handicap at Ayr on return. Others make more appeal.
11-10Craig NicholDonald Whillanslocked12/110/117
There are 5 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 6 Kelso 15:28 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 26f

311 Camp Belan
Promising start over fences when runner-up at Bangor and Wetherby last winter but having ended last season with a bit of a whimper, got back on the up when second at Ayr last month. Step back in trip sure to suit so he's fancied to be in the mix.
12-0Patrick WadgeLucinda Russelllocked1.38/11.1/120
203 Gipsy Lee Rose
Finally off the mark over fences at Hexham in April. Made mistakes but ran at least as well when third at Ayr on return and similar form when runner-up back at Hexham since. In the mix.
11-6Bruce LynnN W Alexanderlocked2.5/12.75/110
1532 Loughermore
Some creditable efforts at up to 21f this spring before recording first win over fences at Southwell in May. Runner-up on both subsequent outings at Cartmel (finished lame and with heat stress on second occasion) but could be one to look out for on reappearance.
11-7William ShanahanSimon Waughlocked3.5/17/1100
315 Maid Of Houxty
Largely disappointed over hurdles last term and held back by her jumping sent chasing on return at Ayr last month. Others make more appeal.
10-6Lewis DobbDonald Whillanslocked6/15/117
314 King Of Fashion
Dual hurdles winner in 2017 and wouldn't be on a poor mark on his efforts over fences in 2021. Went off big price on return from long absence last time (saddle slipped) and looks best watched again.
10-9Thomas WillmottIan Duncanlocked50/122/156
There are 5 runners in this race.
