Emma Lavelle’s gelding makes his debut over fences after some creditable efforts in competitive hurdle contests last season.

Emma Lavelle has won with 43% of her most recent runners

The Wiltshire yard have been in flying form of late with their small-but-select declarations and perhaps this son of Shantou can be another addition to that recent record under Thomas Bellamy.

Hooper had the race at his mercy at Stratford last time out but made plenty of mishaps, including jumping left at times, and he could be worth taking on at this short a price on that merit.

A mark of 119 on handicap debut may well underestimate Harry Whittington’s representative given some of the form he has to his name.

He’s had a break since March but there should be much more to come up in trip given that he won his point-to-point and he is the first runner for the yard in a while following a quiet spell.

Still only five, he’s very lightly raced but can get his campaign off to the best possible start off top-weight here.
