Kelso Novices Hurdle Guide

1. Elvis Mail

Trainer - N W Alexander

Jockey - Lucy Alexander

Second at Ayr to the impressive Gordon Elliott trained Galvin last time out - who made it five wins from five.

Won here at Kelso before the turn of the year, when landing a Class Four with plenty in hand, having drawn clear up the run-in.

Still unexposed but does face a tough task on the figures now upped in grade with a couple of top novices in the field.

2. Getaway Trump

Trainer - Paul Nicholls

Jockey - Harry Cobden

Fourth in the Betfair Hurdle two weeks ago, and could have faired better if ridden a bit more prominently that day - which is what he is used to.

Useful form this season - winning at Plumpton and Exeter, before running a career best second to Ballymore favourite Champ at Newbury in the Challow.

Still holds an entry in the Supreme, but more likely to head to the Coral Cup where he could be well in.

The one to beat here.

3. Get Out The Gate

Trainer - Jim Goldie

Jockey - Callum Bewley

Get Out The Gate ran with much credit at the weights here in the Morebattle Hurdle over the course and distance on his most recent start, and will look to play a part once again.

Beaten by a classy rival in Nicky Henderson's We Have A Dream on Valentines Day, he looks highly progressive after just six outings over hurdles in the last thirteen months.

Needs to take things to a new level here.

4. Rouge Vif

Trainer - Harry Whittingdon

Jockey - Gavin Sheehan

Front-runner who is '121' since being fitted with a hood, surely looks best of the rest to Getaway Trump.

He can certainly lay it down to the favourite, off the evidence of his excellent second to Mister Fisher at Kempton over Christmas, form that has worked wonders since.

Sent off at 4/11 on his only other start since at Newcastle, where despite veering left, he got the job done by a short margin.

Big player.

5. Strong Glance

Trainer - Fergal O'Brien

Jockey - Alain Cawley

Strong Glance has been disappointing in two attempts over hurdles, but has had notable wind surgery since his latest run.

He will be hoping to open up a new chapter after not providing a case for himself at Doncaster or at Newbury over timber, both of which subsequently after winning his bumper at Cheltenham in October.

Lots of room to find in this field.

6. Windsor Avenue

Trainer - Brian Ellison

Jockey - Brian Hughes

Windsor Avenue has a solid record over hurdles in total, including his most recent win at Sedgefield which is working out very well form wise.

Fifteen lengths was the gap back to Hill Sixteen, who has come out and won since at Carlisle for trainer Sue Smith.

He did not first handle the rise to a Class Two at Newcastle back in December, but can be let off and given another chance here.

Solid claims.
