There's not a huge amount of form to go at in this Novice Hurdle and because those who have had experience haven't pulled up any trees so far we're chancing our arm with newcomer BEFORE SUNDOWN marginally ahead of both Charlie Tipple and Red Onion. The pick's pedigree points to success in this sphere and he should go well in these conditions. He should stay this far and from powerful connections he needs respecting especially thrown straight in over obstacles. Charlie Tipple was a four time winner on the level reaching a rating of 83. He did shape with some promise on heavy going during that time but we wait to see if this trip will suit. Red Onion has shown some promise in three bumper runs and will stay at least this far while Aggravation could be a player following a solid hurdles debut. This race won't take a great deal of winning and Before Sundown can score on his very first outing.
