An easy winner at 7/1 in a hurdle race at Stratford over 2m 3f (good) on his handicap debut earlier this month for Oddschecker columnist Warren Greatrex, the 5yo escapes a penalty for that success and if in the same form as 11 days ago should prove too good for his rivals.

5/2 last night, he's now as short as 11/8 in places

Deserter - 1pt @ 7/4

A winner at 2/1 in a hurdle race over this course and distance (good) on his latest outing earlier this month, the Neil Mulholland inmate sets the standard for the rest to meet.

2/1 on first show last night he's now as short as 5/4 in places

Kalondra - 1pt @ 13/8

A well-related, unraced 2yo from powerful connections, the market support looks significant with no form whatsoever to go on in the race.

Biggest price on opening last night was 7/2 but that's now gone with 2/1 the best odds on offer.

Amherst Rock - 1pt @ 2/1

Successful in a hurdle race on debut for Dr Richard Newland, he was third next time out beaten 8l at 4-7fav over hurdles at Uttoxeter over 2m (good) last month.

He has a Dan Skelton odds-on jolly to beat but the market has been positive seeing him come in from 9/4 last night to 13/8 in places this morning

Nikki Steel - 1pt @ 7/4
