3/1

Won well at Bangor last time out and, having posted an improved effort, she may still have more to offer despite being set to race off a 5lb higher mark. Her yard is in good form and a bold bid can be anticipated.

13/2

Respectable effort last time out, but he has become a tad frustrating to follow and needs everything to go his way. Lacks a change of gear but a heavy ground description would be big a bonus point for him, though.

Capable on his day but comes into this with something to prove after a modest effort at Ludlow in January. He is still 2lb above his last winning mark and may need to drop a few more pounds in the ratings before he can truly get competitive at this level.

Struggling to find his form just now but was in the process of running one of his better races until he unseated close to home in his latest start. Safe to assume he is unscathed from the experience but others make more appeal in terms of consistency.

3/1

Held behind Drumviredy last time out but still gave it a good shot in defeat. Capable of going close again as he is well handicapped just now, but he has work to do to reverse the recent form and, given his long losing run stretched back to 2015, he needs everything to go his way to stop the rot.

Betting

Forecast

Powerful Symbol (15/8), Hollow Blue Sky (3/1), Drumviredy (3/1), Paddy The Oscar (13/2), Sunny Ledgend (17/2), Fort Smith (25/1)

Verdict

DRUMVIREDY represents a yard in form and he is taken to brush aside his latest rise in the weights in this modest company. Hollow Blue Sky was no match for the selection last time out, but he makes more appeal as a threat than Sunny Legend, who is capable on his day but still looks a tad high in the weights just now. Fort Smith is a risky option but may be best of the rest. 1. Drumviredy 2. Hollow Blue Sky 3. Sunny Ledgend
