Race 1 Perth 13:42 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

365365102 Copperwell
Thrice-raced maiden who showed improved form dropped in trip when second of 12 in novice hurdle at Wexford (16f, good to soft) 10 days ago. Holds leading claims.
11-4Sean BowenGordon Elliottlocked1.63/12.25/138
365365465 Maifalki
Fragile in his later Flat years but showed he retains a fair chunk of ability on first run since leaving Brian Ellison when second of 8 in novice hurdle at Ayr (16f, good) 46 days ago, albeit no match for winner. Good claims with a repeat.
11-4Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked2.5/12/120
3653652478 Lusaka
Fairly useful maiden on Flat, stays 11f. Sold from John Joseph Murphy for 20,000 gns following a rare poor effort last time. Should have future over jumps and worth a market check.
10-13A P HeskinOlly Murphylocked5.5/13.5/136
365365134 Kilbrainy
Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules who improved a bit when third in a 6-runner hurdle at this course (20.2f, good) 13 days ago, despite jumping none too fluently. Needs a bit more for win purposes.
11-4Ryan ManiaSandy Thomsonlocked8/15.5/131
365365461 Balkalin
Modest hurdler. Remains a maiden after 10 hurdle runs. Creditable third of 8 in maiden hurdle (18/1) at Ayr (16f, good) 46 days ago.
11-4Stephen MulqueenMaurice Barneslocked10/110/10
3653651310 Toucan Sam

10-13William ShanahanAndrew Hamiltonlocked33/180/1142
3653653079 Maxios Show

Race 2 Perth 14:17 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 24f

365365165 Fanamix
Caught the eye on first run since leaving Rebecca Curtis when third of 9 in handicap chase at Ffos Las (23.8f, good to soft) 16 days ago, finishing with running left. Cheekpieces on for 1st time. Seems sure to win races for this yard.
11-2James BowenPeter Bowenlocked1.88/12.75/146
365365202 Castletown
Unreliable individual who gained his first win over fences in 3-runner handicap at Kelso in May, coming clear under aggressive hands and heels (never hit with stick nowadays). Failed to uphold that form on worse terms there last time but it was still a respectable effort.
11-11Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked3/11.62/146
3653651344 Raddle And Hum
4 lb out of weights and unsuited by small-field, steadily-run affair when last in 3-runner handicap chase at Catterick (25.2f, good to firm) 134 days ago. First run for yard after leaving Micky Hammond. Tongue strap back on. Not dismissed.
11-5Gavin SheehanAnn Duffieldlocked6.5/14/138
365365376 Get With It
Modest maiden hurdler who failed to meet expectations sent chasing when ninth of 11 in handicap at this course (20.1f, good to soft, 10/3) 37 days ago. Has something to prove on the back of that.
11-0Craig NicholRose Dobbinlocked8/18/10
365365381 Aye Aye Charlie
Is operating below his best at present, only fifth in 8-runner handicap chase at Newton Abbot (25.8f, good to soft, 7/1) 38 days ago, struggling from halfway. Eased 2 lb.
12-0Jack TudorChristian Williamslocked10/16.5/135
There are 5 runners in this race.

Race 3 Perth 14:52 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 20f

365365381 Wolfspear
Bumper winner who surpassed previous hurdle exploits when successful over C&D last month, looking well served by the step up in trip and finding extra when tackled. Type to do better again and sound claims.
12-0Sean BowenOlly Murphylocked1.88/12.5/133
365365175 Sword Of Fate
Took advantage of a falling mark when making all in a C&D handicap chase last month. Not disgraced from 5 lb higher mark at Cartmel subsequently and has a lower mark to operate from back over hurdles. Not discounted under Brian Hughes.
11-4Brian HughesLeonard Kerrlocked4/17/175
365365138 Cliffs Of Dooneen
One-time useful Flat performer who cashed in off lowly opening hurdles mark at Carlisle in April. Faded out of contention over C&D next time but back on track when second over 2m back here 2 weeks ago. Fancied to be thereabouts.
10-12Craig NicholRose Dobbinlocked4.5/19/1100
365365143 Fathers Advice
5-y-o who quickly got back to form when runner-up over 2m here in April and similar form in 2 starts since, staying on gradually for fourth over this trip at Hexham 2 weeks ago. Fancied to give another good account.
11-11William ShanahanR Mike Smithlocked7/17/10
365365386 Presentedwithwings
Losing run is mounting up but back on track following a break when fourth behind re-opposing Wolfspear over C&D in May. Task is to build on that now from unchanged mark.
11-4Sean QuinlanDaragh Bourkelocked8/15.5/131
365365462 Celtic Flames
Veteran who ended 2020/21 on the up with a brace of C&D handicap victories. Drew a blank last term and strictly below his best when sixth of 9 at Ayr (20.5f) in May but his mark continues to ease.
11-11Derek FoxLucinda Russelllocked12/112/10
365365847 Three Castles
Four-time winner on the Flat and finally off the mark over hurdles at Musselburgh in December. However, he arrives here on the back of some disappointing efforts on the level and others more convincing. Cheekpieces replace visor.
11-3Bruce LynnKeith Dalgleishlocked16/120/125
365365469 Gonfalonier
Not much to shout about over hurdles for Patrick Turley in Ireland and, easy to back, offered little on yard/handicap debut at Ayr (20.5f) last month. Needs to step up plenty to figure.
10-9Danny McMenaminNicky Richardslocked20/15/175
3653653710 Lockdown Leader
Glimmers of promise early last season but form has tailed off earlier this year and in trouble some way out when seventh of 11 over 2m here in May (on back of a wind op). Needs to step up plenty to figure.
10-7Edward AustinEwan Whillanslocked25/114/144
365365374 A Place Apart
Went off the boil for Gavin Cromwell in 2020 and has failed to complete in 2 starts for present stable, pulled up in a C&D handicap early last month.
11-6Thomas DowsonLisa Harrisonlocked66/180/121
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 4 Perth 15:27 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 16f

365365623 Lucky Flight
C&D winner who comes here on the back of victory in 6-runner handicap chase at Market Rasen (17.2f) 62 days ago. Needs considering.
11-13Stephen MulqueenLucinda Russelllocked1.25/11.88/150
365365191 Hermann Clermont
16/1, below-par fourth of 15 in novice hurdle at Ballinrobe (18.5f) 19 days ago. Switches to chasing and not ruled out for top Irish yard.
12-0Sean BowenGordon Elliottlocked3.5/14/114
365365175 Ardera Cross
Dual 2m winner at Ayr in winter who got right back on track when second of 5 in handicap chase at Cartmel (17.3f) 17 days ago. Player off an unchanged mark.
10-9Derek FoxWilliam Young Jnrlocked4/13.33/117
365365216 Tico Times
Good second here (2m4f) in May but cheekpieces on when beating only one at Cartmel (21.2f) 21 days ago. Down in trip and needs to bounce back.
10-7Conor O'FarrellDianne Sayerlocked4/12.5/138
There are 4 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 5 Perth 16:07 Handicap Chase (Class 3) 24f

365365462 Hereditary Rule
Promisng chaser who followed up his Clonmel maiden success in 6-runner handicap at Ayr (24.1f, good) 46 days ago by 2¼ lengths from Exit To Where, always holding on. More to come and can complete the hat-trick.
12-0Peter KavanaghJohn C McConnelllocked2/12.25/113
365365207 Exit To Where
Back at the very top of his game, runner-up to Hereditary Rule at Ayr before going one better at Kelso (21.6f0 20 days ago, though did plenty to show why he's been an infrequent winner down the years (pulling himself up after getting to front run-in). Should remain competitive up 3 lb.
10-6Derek FoxIain Jardinelocked3.33/13.2/14
365365174 All About Joe
Made a successful debut over hurdles in 6-runner handicap chase at Cartmel (21.2f, soft, 33/1) 17 days ago, just holding on having shaped no better than fourth best. Worth taking on in follow-up bid from 3 lb higher.
11-0William ShanahanAndrew Hamiltonlocked6/18/133
365365283 Forgot To Ask
Proved better than ever back from 6 months off when winning 7-runner handicap chase (14/1) at Stratford (27.5f, good to soft) 28 days ago, though was suited by way race developed and may find a 6 lb rise beyond him.
11-11Jonathan BurkeTom Georgelocked6.5/110/154
365365215 Charlie Uberalles
Placed in Irish points and a pair of novice hurdles in May. Requires a market check making an early switch to chasing.
10-10Conor O'FarrellDianne Sayerlocked6.5/14/138
365365308 Railway Muice
Perked right up by a 5-month break when landing handicap chase at Market Rasen (3m) in April. Produced a rare below-par effort there last time and should bounce back.
10-5Tom ScudamoreSarah Humphreylocked10/17.5/125
365365226 Our Ted
Failed to complete at Limerick last time and his C&D form on penultimate start isn't solid. Others preferred.
10-8Sean BowenS R B Crawfordlocked18/120/111
There are 7 runners in this race.

Race 6 Perth 16:46 Handicap Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

365365134 Well Planted
Arrives on the up, travelling smoothly when cosy winner of 6-runner handicap over C&D 13 days ago. Up 7 lb but he remains of major interest.
11-11Ryan ManiaR Mike Smithlocked1.2/11.5/125
365365622 Swinging London
Scored at Fakenham in February before excellent sixth in Fred Winter at Cheltenham. Made bad early mistake when pulled up in handicap at Plumpton (15.9f) 62 days ago, so he's not discounted after a break.
12-0Sean BowenOlly Murphylocked3.5/13/114
365365201 Newtown Boy
Not disgraced after 12 months off despite finishing last of 6 in handicap hurdle at Kelso (16.2f) 20 days ago. Should take a step forward now.
12-0Bruce LynnKeith Dalgleishlocked4/14/10
365365153 Bellaney Gem
Off 7 months before well-held sixth of 7 in minor hurdle at Down Royal (16.4f) 15 days ago. Irish challenger needs to step forward.
11-12James BowenS R B Crawfordlocked7/110/143
365365377 Malangen
Temperamental sort who came in below-par sixth of 11 in handicap hurdle over C&D 37 days ago. Thirteen runs since last win in 2020.
10-7Thomas DowsonLisa Harrisonlocked14/16.5/154
365365136 Roma Bangkok
Scored at Sedgefield in 2021 but he's been well below par over C&D both runs since. Has plenty to prove at present.
10-11Stephen MulqueenMaurice Barneslocked25/133/132
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 7 Perth 17:23 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 24f

365365133 Go Bob Go
Long-standing maiden but he has run well over C&D on his last 2 outings, runner-up last month then splitting Young William and Pammi when fourth 13 days ago. Likely to be in the thick of things again.
11-11Ryan ManiaR Mike Smithlocked3.33/13/110
365365131 Pammi
Won this race last year and back in form over C&D under Brian Hughes in recent weeks, winning then a close fifth (Young William third, Go Bob Go fourth). Bold show likely.
12-0Brian HughesJim Goldielocked3.5/12.25/136
365365134 Young William
Didn't make much of an impact in bumpers/over hurdles for Philip Hobbs during 2020/21 but has won a point since and he made more of an impact back hurdling when third over C&D 13 days ago, with reopposing pair Go Bob Go and Pammi behind in fourth and fifth. Player.
11-10Derek FoxWilliam Young Jnrlocked5/16/120
3653651412 Frankies Fire
Multiple point winner, including last month. Best run over hurdles when 1½ lengths fourth to stablemate West Lawn at Hexham (23f) 14 days ago. Claims if she can build on that.
10-2Craig NicholJames Waltonlocked7/16.5/17
365365209 Emirat De Catana
Temperamental sort who regained winning ways in handicap hurdle at Musselburgh (3m) in December. Lesser efforts since.
10-6Stephen MulqueenLucinda Russelllocked8/18.5/16
365365388 Late Date
Ended losing streak stretching back over 2 years when successful in handicap at Catterick (25) on New Year's Day. Best run since when third over 2½m here last month. Needs to show he can string good runs together now.
10-12Jack HoganMicky Hammondlocked8.5/16.5/124
365365197 Golden Chancer
Showed a good attitude when winning handicap hurdle at Sedgefield (27f) last September but he has something of an all-or-nothing profile and has been well beaten on all 4 outings since.
10-13Sean QuinlanDaragh Bourkelocked16/19/144
3653651710 New Zealander
Exposed as poor maiden hurdler and distant fourth in 17f Cartmel novice on recent yard debut. More realistic chance back in handicap but watching brief still advised now stepping up significantly in trip.
10-5Callum BewleyLeonard Kerrlocked25/128/112
365365206 Halcyon Dreams
Yet to register a victory. Well held on stable debut here last month but seemed to be running a bit better when falling 2 out at Kelso since. Still not easy to make a compelling case for, though.
11-1Emma Smith-ChastonKatie Scottlocked25/133/132
365365385 Hattaab
Fair winner for Graeme McPherson but struggled for form since, including tailed-off last of 9 over C&D last month.
11-2Thomas DowsonLisa Harrisonlocked66/140/139
3653654911 Oscar Blue
Dual hurdles winner in 2015, but not much to report since.
