Jumeirah Hotels And Resorts December Handicap Hurdle Runner by Runner

1. Call Me Lord

Trainer - Nicky Henderson

Jockey -

Heads up strong Henderson team. Loves it here and has won 3 times including 16 length victory at Grade 2 level last time out. First run since then but rightful top-weight.

2. Brain Power

Trainer - Nicky Henderson

Jockey -

Has failed to complete three of last five runs. If he does complete there is a fair chance of hitting the frame. Previous course and distance winner.

3. John Constable

Trainer - Evan Williams

Jockey -

Seven-year-old has had busy but disappointing start to season. Has won at this level but looks out of form. Fell last time out and carrying too much weight.

4. Ch'Tibello

Trainer - Dan Skelton

Jockey -

Classy on his and previous Grade 2 winner. Has shown little this season but any return to old form would give him huge chance off this mark.

5. Unison

Trainer - Jeremy Scott

Jockey -

Eight-year-old has never won at this level and previous run in this grade back in October proved too much. Unlikely to prevail here.

6. Apple's Shakira

Trainer - Nicky Henderson

Jockey -

Has been running at highest level with consistency, could be well-weighted if fully tuned up. Classy on day.

7. Totterdown

Trainer - Richard Phillips

Jockey - Daniel Hiskett

Course and distance winner who won at 20/1 here in November. This far tougher but must be respected.

8. I'm A Game Changer

Trainer - Phillip Hobbs

Jockey -

Six-year-old has finished second on last two outings. Needs to settle better and jumping still not the greatest.

9. Eragon De Chanay

Trainer - Gary Moore

Jockey -

Course and distance winner here last month at Class 3 level. Disappointed on return but could be well-weighted.

10. A Hare Breath

Trainer - Ben Pauling

Jockey -

Return run last month was disappointing. Won this race last year in career best performance. Will need at least repeat of that to win again.

11. Raven's Tower

Trainer - Ben Pauling

Jockey -

Experienced campaigner but just the one win in two years. Difficult to see the gelding prevailing here.

12. First Figaro

Trainer - Venetia Williams

Jockey -

Lightly raced eight-year-old who won on British debut. This far tougher and will need to show more than he did in Ireland.

13. Timoteo

Trainer - Alan King

Jockey -

Has not run since March 2017. No notable form over hurdles and best watched on return.

14. Court Royale

Trainer - Evan Williams

Jockey -

Already had four runs since October and has won twice at Class 4 level. Still unexposed and shouldn’t be ruled out.

15. Friday Night Light

Trainer - David Pipe

Jockey -

Likely rank outsider. Sole win over hurdles at lower level at start of year. No run since May.

16. Nelson's Touch

Trainer - Seamus Mullins

Jockey -

Will take career best performance to win here but second behind Totterdown last time out gives each-way chance.

17. Man Of Plenty

Trainer - Sophie Leach

Jockey -

Veteran without win for over four years. Solid run in Newbury handicap last time out but unlikely to threaten here.

18. Clayton

Trainer - Gary Moore

Jockey -

Nine-year-old running for first time since January. Won at Class 3 level this time last year but needs to prove fitness. Well weighted if ready to go.

19. Shiroccan Roll

Trainer - Emma Lavelle

Jockey -

Unexposed four-year-old who could be extremely well-weighted. Has been progressing nicely and has not been outside the first two in three outings this season.

20. Faithful Mount

Trainer - Ian Williams

Jockey -

First run on hurdles since December 16 when well behind Brain Power. Recent flat form solid enough but has only ever won once over obstacles.

21. Ardmayle

Trainer - Ali Stronge

Jockey -

Being upped in grade after finishing last season with victory in class 4. Would be a surprise to see the horse win for this small stable.

22. Thounder

Trainer - Gary Moore

Jockey -

Unexposed four-year-old is 2-3 over hurdles in this country. Last outing was over a year ago and this a major step up in class.
