911-12OR: 92
14/1

Won a Catterick handicap hurdle (3m1½f, good to soft) in January but well beaten from a mark of 93 on both subsequent starts. Switches to chasing for just the second time in his career and this looks a tough ask from just 1lb lower.

7/1

5lb lower than when scoring over C&D in October 2015 (good to firm) before the handicapper took his measure. Returned to some better form when last seen at Market Rasen in December and latest 1lb drop will help. Likely player.

1111-1OR: 81
10/1

Won a 3m chase at Market Rasen from 3lb higher when Keith Reveley still held the licence and tends to do his best work at this time of year. Conditions should suit him and blinkers tried for just the second time today. Should be thereabouts.

710-13OR: 79
7/1

9lb lower than his only win, which was in a Cartmel novices' handicap hurdle (2m6f, good) almost a year ago. Yet to figure in three chases, but clearly has the ability to be effective from this sort of mark and a market check is advised.

13/2

Goes well here and won a 3m2f hunter chase at the track in 2013. Again came back to the track to make the frame from 1lb higher last month, so could get involved, though likely to find a couple too good.

810-11OR: 77
25/1

Regressed over hurdles in the past 12 months or so and didn't offer a huge amount of encouragement on his chase debut at Carlisle in March. A further 5lb and this step up in trip may help, but it still takes a leap of faith to see him winning even in this grade.

12/1

Won a Sedgefield handicap chase (2m½f, soft) in February 2016 from this mark and almost ended his subsequent drought back there last time (3m2½f, good) when beaten under a length. Should again be capable of involvement.

910-9OR: 75
10/1

The winner of a soft ground Wetherby handicap chase (3m) 18 months ago, he has slid 25lb in the handicap since his next start and has never threatened to add to that. Has previously been tried in cheek pieces and a hood (fitted for that win) and now tries the visor. Interesting if supported.

1110-6OR: 72
14/1

0-8 under rules and has won just the one point-to-point from 25 attempts. 3lb lower than when making the frame at Sedgefield (3m2½f, good) last time out and if able to reproduce that effort she has each way claims.

810-6OR: 72
7/1

It's a couple of years now since she dead-heated in a Wetherby handicap hurdle (3m, good) from 2lb higher, with her best effort since being when runner-up at Southwell (3m) in December from 7lb higher. Yet to produce that form over fences and clearly a risky proposition.

1010-2OR: 68
9/1

Maiden point-to-point winner who is 0-23 under rules. Would have a squeak based on Musselburgh runs in January of the last two seasons, but otherswise not easy to enthuse about him.

Maiden point-to-point winner who has yet to make the frame from 12 attempts under rules. 4lb lower today when when beaten 11½L at Musselburgh when last seen in January and not easy to fancy.

18/1

Has won five times, which is more than quite a number of these, the lastest being over 3m2½f at Sedgefield last year (soft). Goes into this from 14lb lower, but recent form has been terrible and all his wins have been on soft or heavy.

910-0OR: 64
25/1

0-18 career profile and was beaten 25L despite making the frame for just the fourth time when tried in a Wetherby maiden hurdle last month. Chasing record just as discouraging and impossible to recommend from out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Moscow Menace (13/2), Lilly's Legend (7/1), Donapollo (7/1), What A Game (7/1), Top Cat Dj (9/1), Longueville Flier (10/1), French Seventyfive (10/1), Captain Sharpe (12/1), Nelly La Rue (14/1), Touch Of Steel (14/1), Notonebuttwo (18/1), Toreador (20/1), Coolanure (25/1), Rhythm Of Sound (25/1)

Verdict

A poor contest to begin proceedings and FRENCH SEVENTYFIVE is suggested. The Gillian Boanas-trained gelding relishes this time of year and sound conditions and is back on a handy mark. Donapollo has a similar profile and is feared, while What A Game merits a market check and could fight out the minors with Moscow Menace.
  1. French Seventyfive
  2. Donapollo
  3. What A Game
