Tuddenham Green

J: Tom Cannon
T: Alan King
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: 120
Days: 15

Tuddenham Green is a horse who’s a real example of how certain horses can really thrive from the switch of codes, flat – to jumps.

He was only 69 rated on the flat, and didn’t really show much at all. He was pitched into a fairly decent looing juvenile hurdle at Chepstow and fairly ran away with it, 42L separated himself in first, to Dicktate in last.

He did beat the useful looking Age Of Sail there as well so it looked a decent performance. He bettered that next time out at Wetherby, by finishing second in a listed race behind Medyaf.

He gets 5lb from the reopposing Medyaf today, and that should help. Should run a good race.

Mr Freedom

J: Marc Goldstein
T: Sheena West
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: 120
Days: 15

Mr Freedom is one of the more experienced national hunt performers in this line up.

He’s ran five times over hurdles so far, winning three of those races. Two starts ago, he ran out a ready, ten length winner of a juvenile hurdle at Fontwell from the Moore’s Hill Station back in a distant second.

He was then upped in grade to compete in the listed Weatherby’s Wensleydale Juvenile Hurdle on the 28th of October, but he unfortunately jinked left, and ran out two from home.

He was going easily, and clearly running a big race there, but he does get 5lb from the winner there – Meydaf – today, and that could prove very beneficial. Very good chance.

Cabrakan

J:
T: Milton Harris
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: N/A

Cabrakan will be making his hurdling debut here, having not jumped a flight in public as yet.

He’s a flat recruit from the Richard Hannon yard, who was fairly adequate – running to a peak rating of 80. He’s a fairly interesting pedigree with an emphasis on US/AUS mile heritage.

He has showed glimpses of ability on the flat, as highlighted when winning a decent handicap at Kempton. He may well improve for a flight, and Milton Harris does particularly well with horses of this blueprint.

Interesting.

Paddy Brennan

Scriptwriter

J: Paddy Brennan
T: Milton Harris
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: N/A
Days: 27

Scriptwriter, a talented flat performer who earned a peak rating of 102 (which is a good deal above these) made a bright start to life as a hurdler when scoring at Sedgefield in October.

He won there by two and a quarter lengths, but it was all so straightforward and professional, he even afforded himself the luxury of wandering around prior to the last – an evident sign that he was still learning on the job.

But that’s good to see, he’s clearly a sound, alert mind, and he’s 1/1 over hurdles so he’s hard to fault. He is a highly intriguing runner here against some real NH types.

Super Stars

J:
T: Adrian Paul Keatley
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: N/A

Super Stars will likely be out of his depth here, unless his aptitude for hurdling is eerily above average. He is zero for eleven on the flat, and his peak official rating was 77, which puts him in the “moderate” category.

He does have a nice enough pedigree, but not one that screams improvement for an obstacle. He’s probably going to struggle, against some classy looking horses.

Jamie Moore

Perseus Way

J: Jamie Moore
T: Gary Moore
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: N/A

Perseus Way was last seen in the middle of September, when winning a 1m2f handicap at Newbury, in good style. He hit a decent level on the flat in just the six runs, topping out at an official mark of 80.

He looks an interesting recruit to hurdles, and he was rated a few lbs higher than most of his ex-flat counterparts here. The yard seem to be going ok at present and there’s no reason why he can’t run a decent race.

Harry Skelton

Medyaf

J: Harry Skelton
T: Dan Skelton
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-5
OR: 123
Days: 15

Medyaf looks an interesting recruit to the NH scene. Formerly of John Gosden on the flat; Medyaf failed to win a single race, from four efforts.

He had an official mark of 67, which is ordinary to say the least. He has looked completely different horse since joining the Skelton team, he’s 2/2 over hurdles, including a listed race last time out.

He beat Tuddenham Green (reopposing) there, by three lengths and he was safely come the line. He’s certainly a very interesting prospect, and he’s done everything right thus far, good chance despite the penalty.

Harry Cobden

Blueking D'Oroux

J: Harry Cobden
T: Paul Nicholls
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: N/A
Days: 196

Blueking D’Oroux looks a really interesting contender here, largely due to the fact he’s such an unknown quantity.

He is a French recruit, who won at the very first time of asking at Fontainebleau by three and a half lengths. He subsequently finished second and fourth on two occasions at Auteuil.

Latterly, he did run fourth in a much higher grade (listed level) but he was beaten a cumulative distance of four and a half lengths.

His pedigree is also somewhat niche, being by Jeu St Eloi is certainly uncommon, however – he is out of a Blue Bresil mare, who’s presence on the page does bring forth a more familiar feel.

Hard to quantify – an interesting contender.

War Correspondent

J: Sam Twiston-Davies
T: R P Cody
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: N/A
Days: 32

War Correspondent was fairly consistent on the flat in Ireland, earning a peak official rating of 78, but he rarely ran a “bad” race. He made his hurdles debut at Punchestown in October, where he always looked like winning, due to how he travelled into the race.

He really looked to improve for a flight of hurdles there, and he will have learnt plenty from that success, especially after a few errors. He is a winner over hurdles, so he commands respect.

Just Another One

J: David Noonan
T: Nigel Hawke
N/A
Age: 3
Weight: 11-0
OR: N/A
Days: 49

Just Another One is a horse who’s still a maiden. He’s ran the three times, at; Nottingham, Ffos Las and Market Rasen.

His first two starts were on the flat, where he finished a big price, highly respectable second each time. His hurdling debut, at Market Rasen was quite informative.

He ran second again, to the promising Exciting News of the Dan Skelton yard. The penny looked like it dropped fairly late on there, but he finished with a good degree of purpose and he will have learnt plenty from that first spin over hurdles.

With improvement assumed, he could run a big race.
