1
jockey silks 1. TORPILLO (FR)
J: Daryl Jacob
T: Nigel Twiston-Davies
4
11-10
Successful sole start in France and wide-margin winner of Sandown juvenile hurdles for this yard. However, disappointing at Haydock last month and on a stiff-looking mark for this handicap debut.
22 stars

2
jockey silks 2. FINE BRUNELLO (FR)
J: Barry Geraghty
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
4
11-8
French bumper winner who shaped well when fourth of 17 in Limerick maiden hurdle won by stablemate Band of Outlaws on Boxing Day. Runner-up in Grade 2 company here next time and may do better still.
33 stars

3
jockey silks 3. BAND OF OUTLAWS (IRE)
J: J. J. Slevin
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
4
11-8
Useful performer on the Flat and made it 2-3 in this sphere with an impressive display at Naas (2m) last month. Probably has more to offer now handicapping and he's high on the shortlist.
55 stars

4
jockey silks 4. CRACKER FACTORY
J: Sam Twiston-Davies
T: Alan King
4
11-8
Has won 4 times over hurdles this season and was a good second in Grade 2 over C&D in November. His run on the Flat 3 weeks ago should have left him spot on for this. First-time cheekpieces.
22 stars

5
jockey silks 5. CHIEF JUSTICE
J: Keith Donoghue
T: Gordon Elliott, Ireland
4
11-8
Notched fourth success in this sphere when getting on top close home in Fairyhouse Grade 3 in December. Not seen to best effect last time and has since undergone wind surgery,
33 stars

6
jockey silks 6. NATURELLE (FR)
J: Alexis Poirier
T: Alain Couetil, France
4
11-7
Winner of 2 of her 4 hurdles starts in France, including a listed event at Pau (17.4f) last month. Form isn't easy to assess in the context of this race and handicapper hasn't taken any chances.
22 stars

7
jockey silks 7. GOT TRUMPED
J: Robbie Power
T: Mrs J. Harrington, Ireland
4
11-7
Confirmed abundant hurdles debut promise when landing a 20-runner Punchestown event in November. Hasn't really progressed since, though, and improvement needed off what looks a stiff mark.
22 stars

8
jockey silks 8. FANFAN DU SEUIL (FR)
J: Paddy Brennan
T: Tom George
4
11-5
Debut winner in France and opened account for new connections at Exeter in November. Lost little caste in defeat when runner-up on the other course here (16.8f) next time and further progress likely.
33 stars

9
jockey silks 9. BEAT THE JUDGE (IRE)
J: Joshua Moore
T: Gary Moore
4
11-4
Sprang a surprise when making a successful hurdles debut at Kempton (2m) in December. Acquitted himself well when runner-up in the Adonis over that C&D last time but improvement needed off this mark.
22 stars

10
jockey silks 10. OUR POWER (IRE)
J: Tom Cannon
T: Alan King
4
11-4
Couldn't live with Fanfan du Seuil at Exeter in November but improved when scoring decisively at Newbury the following month. Not disgraced in a Grade 2 here latest and he's an each-way player.
22 stars

11
jockey silks 11. FOX PRO (FR)
J: Lizzie Kelly
T: Mrs Jane Williams
4
11-3
Confirmed debut promise when landing a Compiegne juvenile hurdle in November. However, finished out with the washing at Auteuil subsequently and his opening mark doesn't look generous.
11 stars

12
jockey silks 12. COKO BEACH (FR)
J: J. W. Kennedy
T: Gordon Elliott, Ireland
4
11-3
Winner of sole start in France and stepped up on low-key Irish debut when 8 lengths third to Band of Outlaws at Naas (2m). Unlikely that a 5 lb pull will be enough to see him reverse those placings.
22 stars

13
jockey silks 13. PRABENI
J: Jeremiah McGrath
T: Charlie Mann
4
11-3
Above-average Flat performer for William Haggas and made it 2-3 in this sphere when landing a Doncaster novice (16.6f) last month. Much more on his plate here but he's not short of potential.
33 stars

14
jockey silks 14. ZIZANEUR (FR)
J: Mr David Maxwell
T: Philip Hobbs
4
11-2
Fairly useful hurdler who was successful in France last summer. Runner-up in juvenile hurdles at Ludlow and Newbury since crossing the Channel but this demands significant improvement.
22 stars

15
jockey silks 15. DOGON
J: Harry Cobden
T: Paul Nicholls
4
11-2
Fairly useful hurdler/chaser in France. Bettered inauspicious British debut when second at Wincanton and yard boasts a good record in this race. Tongue strap applied.
22 stars

16
jockey silks 16. CIEL DE NEIGE (FR)
J: R. Walsh
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
4
11-1
Well held on third and final start for Guy Cherel last year, but had shaped well both runs prior to that and, having joined a powerful yard, it'll be interesting to see what the market has to say.
33 stars

17
jockey silks 17. LETHAL STEPS
J: Davy Russell
T: Gordon Elliott, Ireland
4
11-0
Useful Flat winner and has shown plenty in trio of big-field maiden hurdles, third of 20 when upped to 2½m at Punchestown latest. Drop back in trip a plus now handicapping and cheekpieces added.
44 stars

18
jockey silks 18. STAR MAX (GER)
J: Rachael Blackmore
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
4
11-0
Useful Flat winner who has improved with each of his 3 starts in this sphere, off the mark in 2m Gowran maiden last month. Likely to do better still but presumably isn't the stable first-string here.
22 stars

19
jockey silks 19. OI THE CLUBB OI'S
J: Tom O'Brien
T: Ian Williams
4
10-13
Fair Flat winner and placed all 3 starts over hurdles, improving when third in a Doncaster Grade 2 (16.6f) last time. Should pick up a race before long but others preferred this time.
22 stars

20
jockey silks 20. LA SORELITA (FR)
J: P. Townend
T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
4
10-13
Winner on debut in France last year but fair to say that she hasn't measured up to expectations in 3 starts for Willie Mullins. Improvement needed now pitched into a handicap. Tongue strap applied.
22 stars

21
jockey silks 21. PRAECEPS (IRE)
J: Wayne Hutchinson
T: Alan King
4
10-12
Fairly useful on the Flat and has taken well to hurdles, off the mark at second attempt at Market Rasen last month. Not disgraced in Kempton Grade 2 since and he's in with an each-way shout.
22 stars

22
jockey silks 22. KING D'ARGENT (FR)
J: Harry Skelton
T: Dan Skelton
4
10-12
Fairly useful maiden on the Flat for Ger Lyons and made successful hurdles debut at Wetherby in October. Solid enough efforts in defeat since but more needed on first start following wind surgery.
22 stars

Analyst's Verdict

A case can be made for plenty of these but the one who appeals most is BAND OF OUTLAWS. He travelled notably well when landing a Naas novice in good style last time and is likely to go on improving. Lethal Steps could be the pick of the Gordon Elliott trio, while Willie Mullins' Ciel de Neige is one to note in the betting and Fanfan du Seuil also needs considering.
