A very interesting maiden hurdle featuring several likely to go on to better things. Tiqris possibly has the best hurdles form having only found one too good over a longer trip at Ludlow in January. Backhomeinderry was second at Wincanton earlier this month while Chase The Wind, Vazaro Delafayette and Wilde Blue Yonder arrive on the back of some decent form in bumpers. SIGN OF A VICTORY easily landed a Ludlow bumper just over two weeks ago and can score over hurdles at the first time of asking as both Seedling and Very Noble were a little disappointing last time. The latter's stablemate Fascino Rustico ran in the Champion Bumper in March so is obviously held in some regard and shouldn't be ignored.
