Debut Hurdler Set To Transfer Top Bumper Form To Jumps

Williams Four-Year-Old To Wave Goodbye To Opposition

The great stayer Yeats has produced some top racehorses both on the flat and especially over jumps, and he has a son making his debut today who could go on to emulate his predecessors. BREAKING WAVES runs in the Royal Ascot Racing Club Maiden Hurdle after two runs in National Hunt Flat races and his form and pedigree points to him starting his jumping career with a win. He zipped home on debut in a bumper at Huntingdon last March, winning easily from Some Day Soon after being hampered half-way in the race. He had a six months break and then returned to the course in late October, getting home third in a hot Cheltenham bumper, beaten under two lengths by Strong Glance and Master Debonair. The former was a previous winner and the latter came out last weekend at the same course to win a Class 1 event. In context, that's top form. Breaking Waves, trained in Oxfordshire by Noel Williams, would be an odds-on shot if he came from one of the top stables and his form is backed up by BTO stats. Top on regular and third on speed ratings he gets six positives, including a liking for today's course and distance by Yeats' progeny, which is three from 12, as well as jockey Wayne Hutchinson's 200%+ better than expected return over the same. MOONLIGHTER is next best on ratings and ran a nice third in a Bangor novice three weeks ago and GEORDIE B has a win to his name, plus his trainer Venetia Williams is three from 18 over course and distance. Breaking Waves is best 15/8 with BET365.
