13/2

Winner over an extended 2m6f here in November but well beaten off this 9lb higher mark subsequently including in a Grade 3 contest over 2m4f here earlier this month. Drops in grade here and interesting to see how he fares.

Beaten 11L when finishing runner-up in a three runner contest here earlier this month on handicap debut in this sphere. Had earlier justified odds-on favouritism at Exeter and of interest in first time blinkers.

Recorded a double at Wincanton and Exeter earlier this season but well beaten off this mark at Cheltenham when last seen in action in January and while likely had issues with the trip that day he has a bit to prove here.

Shaped better than in many of his recent starts when finishing fifth here in November but pulled up at Sandown subsequently. Remains on a mark 10lb higher than when last successful in November 2014 and looks out of sorts at present.

Defeated Gala Ball in a three runner event over C&D last time out. Has been raised 7lb for that victory but likely to run well again here for a yard that won this back in 2015.

Finished runner-up at Haydock in December but well beaten at Warwick subsequently. Steps up in trip here and races off a mark 5lb higher than when last successful.

Beaten a short-head at Haydock in a novices handicap over this trip a month ago. Raise of 6lb for that effort looks harsh and races off a career high mark in this contest.

Winner over this trip at Carlisle in October when last seen out. That particular victory was a career best effort and he may struggle to repeat that off a 9lb higher mark here.

Beaten ½L over 3m in a handicap event at Doncaster a month ago and while he has been running well this season (also finished in the frame at Cheltenham and here in November) he remains on a mark 6lb higher than for his most recent victory and a place may be the best he can hope for here.

Registered a double at Worcester in July and ran well when finishing third behind a progressive rival at Cheltenham in October. Races off the same mark here and a repeat of that effort should see him go well if fit for his return to action.

Finished in the first three in three of his last four outings (unseated in the other start) but well held over 2m3f at Doncaster last time out. Races off a 2lb lower mark here but likely to find a few too good in this.

Winner of a novice handicap here in December but disappointed the last twice. Finished fourth behind an improved rival at Sandown last month but there looks to be a few with a more obvious chance in this.

Winner by a neck over 2m4f at Warwick on soft ground last month. Races off a 2lb higher mark here and has finished in the frame off much higher marks in the past. Interesting off a light weight.

Betting

Forecast

Warriors Tale (9/2), O Maonlai (13/2), Gala Ball (7/1), Aqua Dude (7/1), Icing On The Cake (8/1), Walk In The Mill (10/1), No Buts (10/1), Ericht (10/1), Casino Markets (16/1), Grey Gold (16/1), Shadows Lengthen (25/1), Gurkha Brave (25/1), Ulck Du Lin (25/1), Ut Majeur Aulmes (33/1)

Verdict

CASINO MARKETS ran well when finishing third behind a useful rival at Cheltenham over 2m when last seen in action in October. The selection should have no issues with the trip having won over 2m5f in the past and the ground should also suit here. O Maonlai has been contesting better races than this of late including Graded contests the last twice, this drop in grade looks likely to suit him and he can claim second ahead of Gala Ball who has his second start in handicap company in this.
