711-12OR: 120
9/2

Winner of a bumper at Southwell in November and run well in three hurdles outings to date. Beaten 1L at Kempton over 2m5f on his penultimate outing, drops in trip here but interesting on handicap debut with blinkers applied here.

10/1

Winner over 2m1f at Carlisle in October 2015 for previous stable but relatively lightly raced since. Finished third in first time cheekpieces and tongue tie off a 3lb higher mark at Ffos Las in November but failed to reproduce that form in two starts since and a bit to prove here.

811-8OR: 116
9/4

Winner over 2m on soft ground when making his handicap debut at Sandown last month. Has to race off an 8lb higher mark here but remains unexposed and has a good jockey in the saddle as he attempts to follow up here.

Made all when seeing off two rivals by 82L at Hexham in December on his first start for this yard since moving from France. Well beaten in three outings since and handicap mark is falling as a result but a bit to prove at present.

Winner over 2m1f at Sedgfield on his penultimate outing at Sedgefield in December. Well beaten off this 6lb higher mark since however and returns from over two months off the track in this.

Winner off this mark at Southwell last May but well beaten since including in three chase outings for this stable this season. Most recent of those came over 2m4f here and he reverts to hurdles in this after nearly four months off the track.

Ran well when finishing 13L second on second outing in handicaps having been sent off favourite at Doncaster over an extended 2m3f a month ago. Has been dropped 2lb for that effort and interesting again with a top jockey booked to ride.

811-2OR: 110
9/2

Point-to-point winner at the ninth attempt at Tattersalls Farm in November and put in his best effort over hurdles when 8L third at Huntingdon last month. That form has been boosted by the runner-up since and he looks likely to run well on handicap debut.

Winner three times over hurdles but not at his best in recent outings. Has been racing on ground that looks softer than ideal based on outings for this yard and every chance of him bouncing back given forecast better conditions here.

911-0OR: 108
33/1

Finished third at Southwell in a 3m handicap chase when last seen in action back in November. That effort came off a 9lb lower mark than he races off here and now rated 9lb lower than for his most recent success.

25/1

Winner six times in France but disappointed in five outings for current yard. Handicap mark is falling as a result and worth a check in the market off a light weight here.

Betting

Forecast

Silverhow (9/4), Agamemmon (9/2), Land League (9/2), Saint Cajetan (5/1), McKenzie's Friend (7/1), Hadfield (10/1), Makethedifference (14/1), Perseid (14/1), Kingston (25/1), Great Tempo (25/1), Brave Helios (33/1), Classic Tune (66/1), Benissimo (66/1)

Verdict

The form of LAND LEAGUE'S most recent outing is working out well and he is taken to make a winning handicap debut here. The former point-to-point winner was withdrawn from an engagement at Fontwell yesterday and is taken to get the better of last time out winner Silverhow who's top yard are going well at present (8/31 recently) while top weight Agamemmon wearing blinkers for the first time can claim third.
