Race 1 Huntingdon 13:15 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

2112 School Days Over
Has looked a useful prospect in bumpers, scoring at Market Rasen in May before excelelnt Cheltenham second lst month. He rates a player now making his hurdles debut.
11-0Paddy BrennanFergal O'Brienlocked2.5/10.91/164
1973 Father Of Jazz
Useful Flat winner who came in seventh in listed race at Goodwood (9.9f) when last seen out 6 months ago for Roger Varian. Brings lots of potential to hurdling for his new yard.
11-0Harry Skelton Dan Skeltonlocked2.75/15/182
2404 Hansard
Fairly useful ex-Irish bumper winner for Charles O'Brien. Since changed hands for 48,000 euros so he's one to consider on his hurdles debut for his new yard.
11-0Jamie MooreGary Moorelocked4/110/1150
20916 Treyarnon Bay
Runner-up in a bumper for Joseph Tuite before going one better on yard debut at Southwell 6 months ago. Another who needs considering now starting out over hurdles.
10-7Nico de BoinvilleNicky Hendersonlocked4.5/15/111
291 Big Jim Beam
Showed fairly useful form when readily winning 9-runner bumper at Wincanton (15.2f, 7/1) on NH debut 29 days ago. Much respected on his hurdles debut.
11-0Brendan PowellWarren Greatrexlocked5/15.5/110
619 Kenzai Warrior
Useful 1m Flat winner at his best but he came in last of 9 in handicap at Leicester (10f) 61 days ago. Goes hurdling and has the potential to do well if getting back on track.
11-0Daryl JacobRoger Teallocked8/111/138
198 Izayte
Fair maiden who posted an excellent fourth of 12 in novice hurdle at Lingfield (16f) 19 days ago. Must enter calculations.
11-0Jack QuinlanNeil Kinglocked28/128/10
4311 Pride Of Hawridge
Fair 10f Flat winner for Rod Millman this autumn. Changed hands for 17,000 gns so he's one to consider on his debut in this sphere for his new handler.
11-0Ciaran GethingsStuart Edmundslocked50/140/120
206 Hungry Hill
Had a wind op before posting encouraging eighth of 15 in novice (25/1) at Exeter (16.7f) on hurdles bow 20 days ago, not knocked about. Should progress.
11-0Kevin BroganJonjo O'Neilllocked66/180/121
195 HerecomesFreddie
Poor hurdler who was pulled up in novice hurdle (40/1) at Hereford (16.2f) 19 days ago. A fair bumper winner but he is hard to warm to.
11-0Liam HarrisonMichael Scudamorelocked80/1150/188
292 Calcutta Dream
Modest Flat winner who posted solid third of 11 in handicap at Chelmsford City (10f) 29 days ago. Respected now going hurdling.
11-0Adam WedgeMichael & David locked80/1200/1150
3310 Lookingdandy
80/1, eleventh of 12 in novice hurdle at Warwick (19f, soft) on hurdles bow 33 days ago. In good hands but needs to take a big step forward.
11-0Kielan WoodsBen Paulinglocked125/1200/160
2314 Celestial Park
Hooded/tongue strap on for 1st time when sixth of 9 in novice hurdle (66/1) at Southwell (15.8f, good) on hurdles bow 23 days ago. Big step forward is required.
10-7Jonathan BurkeBen Caselocked150/1200/133
1913 Vissani
50/1, pulled up in novice hurdle at Hereford (16.2f, soft) on NH debut 19 days ago. Needs a lot more.
11-0Charlie ToddIan Williamslocked150/1200/133
24315 Ruby's Pearl
Seventh of 11 in bumper at Southwell (80/1) 8 months ago. Had a wind op ahead of her hurdles debut with more needed.
10-7Harrison BeswickEmma-Jane Bishoplocked150/1200/133
187 Hunsbury
300/1, pulled up in novice hurdle at Warwick (21f, soft) on hurdles bow 18 days ago, losing touch before 5 out. Down in trip with work to do.

Race 2 Huntingdon 14:20 Handicap Hurdle (Class 3) 16f

263 Impulsive One
Impressive winner of a listed juvenile at Musselburgh in February and showed the immediate benefit of a second breathing operation when scoring over C&D (good to soft) last month. 4 lb rise looks manageable and he should have a big say in proceedings.
11-10Daryl JacobNicky Hendersonlocked2.5/12.25/110
217 First Impression
Won a Wetherby handicap hurdle last November and mostly good efforts since, including on the Flat this autumn (won at Ayr in September). Never landed a blow in the Greatwood at Cheltenham (16.4f, good to soft) 3 weeks ago but he's one to take seriously down in grade.
11-2Billy GarrittyJohn Quinnlocked4.5/13.33/126
222 Nickle Back
Rubbished his 66/1 SP when runner-up at Southwell on hurdle debut in March 2021 and showed that was no fluke when bolting up at Fontwell 6 months later. Looked no easy ride on return from 14 months off at Cheltenham recently but could figure provided a hood can help him settle.
11-11Aidan ColemanSarah Humphreylocked6.5/15/123
361 Anyharminasking
Beat Constitution Hill in a point and looked an exciting prospect himself as he easily won Catterick/Sedgefield handicap hurdles in January. Probably needed the run in a good-quality handicap at Ascot just over 5 weeks ago and he may well get back on the up today.
12-1Jonjo O'Neill JrJonjo O'Neilllocked7/17.5/17
198 Sorbet
Likeable type who ran up to her best after 6 months off when runner-up at Fakenham (16f, soft) last month, pulling clear with a thriving sort. Up 4 lb in a better race so percentage call is to look elsewhere despite a fully-fledged rider taking over in the saddle.
10-9Harry CobdenLucy Wadhamlocked8/118/1125
6055 Paros
Winner over hurdles on sole start in France and bettered opening efforts for present stable when running out a comfortable winner of a Musselburgh novice (16.4f) in March 2021. Not seen since disappointing a fortnight later but worth a market check on handicap debut.
11-8Nico de BoinvilleNicky Hendersonlocked8/118/1125
3310 Big Boy Bobby
Fairly useful 10f Flat winner. Similar level shown over hurdles and ran close to form after 7 months off when fourth at Warwick (16f, soft) last month. Remains low-mileage and likely has more to offer this term.
10-2Tom BellamyAlan Kinglocked10/17/130
226 Haafapiece
Won twice at Wetherby last season but evidently slower to come to hand this season than last. Now operating from 6 lb below his last successful mark so this previous C&D winner shouldn't be discounted.
11-5Jamie BracePam Slylocked25/122/112
164 Doctor Parnassus
Dual winner earlier this year but has failed to beat a rival on both outings since returning to action. In good hands so he shouldn't be written off.
11-9Harry Skelton Dan Skeltonlocked25/116/136
349 Privatory
Winner on debut for this yard at Sandown in March. Below that level all 3 subsequent starts, including on return at Plumpton just under 5 weeks ago (extremely easy to back). Handicapper eases his grip as a result.
10-7Jamie MooreGary Moorelocked30/150/167
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 3 Huntingdon 14:55 Conditions Chase (Class 1) 20f

506 Pic D'Orhy
Dual Grade 2-winning novice last term and won as he was entitled to in 4-runner minor event chase at Newton Abbot (21f, good to soft, 4/5) 50 days ago. Strong travelling front-runner is high on the shortlist.
11-7Harry CobdenPaul Nichollslocked2.5/12.25/110
3162 First Flow
High-class chaser proved he wasn't reliant on softer ground when scoring in this race last year. Stiff task behind Shishkin and Energumene in Clarence House Chase last time and should put up a bold bid to defend his crown on return.
11-10David BassKim Baileylocked3/14.5/150
355 Millers Bank
Better than ever when winning the Grade 1 Manifesto novices' chase at Aintree in April and confirmed himself a very smart chaser when a creditable ½-length second of 7 to Beauport in intermediate chase at Carlisle (20f, soft) 35 days ago. Respected.
11-7Kielan WoodsAlex Haleslocked3.75/12.12/143
223 Mister Fisher
Smart chaser won Grade 2 Silviniaco Conti Chase at Kempton in January but is showing his form increasing rarely nowadays, folding tamely before pulling up at Cheltenham. Won this in 2020 but others preferred.
11-10James BowenNicky Hendersonlocked7/110/143
2401 Allmankind
Won 5 of his first 6 starts over fences, including the Old Roan Chase at Aintree last October, but disappointed in this race last year and jumped with little conviction under change of tactics in the Melling Chase on last chase outing. Bit to prove now.
11-10Harry Skelton Dan Skeltonlocked9/111/122
2287 Pink Legend
Won C&D listed mares' event in January before finishing a fine second in the Liberthine Mares' Chase at Cheltenham. Likeable type but will need to take her form up another level to mix with the boys in this company.
11-1Charlie DeutschVenetia Williamslocked12/110/117
164 Do Your Job
Grade 2 winning novice chaser last season but made a chance-ending error at a crucial stage on his return in the Old Roan and it was similar story when fifth in a 13-runner handicap at Ascot 16 days ago. More required in this company.
11-7Luca MorganMichael Scudamorelocked20/125/125
