Dr Massini filly. Dam (c92/h94), temperamental 2m hurdle winner (stayed 2½m). Promise when midfield on debut but likely she'd of run below that level before coming to grief at Huntingdon last time.

Unplaced in both starts over hurdles. Fell at the last when 3-1 at Huntingdon over 2m (good) in a hurdle race won by Miss Mumtaz last month on her latest outing.

At The Races Verdict

MELEKHOV landed a bumper at Hexham in April and took a clear forward step on his second start over hurdles when second at Taunton last month. That was his first outing since October so he's fully entitled to come on for the run and gets the nod here. First Destination, a bumper winner on debut at Market Rasen, is worth a market check now debuting over timber, while there is likely better to come from Venetia Williams' French import Quick Wave, who is having his second run for the stable.

Timeform Verdict

MELEKHOV was far from disgraced and improved markedly on his hurdling debut form when runner-up at Taunton in March. Further progress is a distinct possibility now and he is fancied to come out on top. Rococo River is another highly likely to improve and is feared, ahead of the returning Quick Wave.
