3/1
Useful novice a couple of seasons ago including when winning an Irish Grade 1 contest at Fairyhouse (2m4f, yielding). Not hit those heights in open company however and drops in grade having finished 21L third in a Grade 1 last time.

Impressed when winning this race off a 5lb lower mark in similar conditions in 2017. Pulled up in two subsequent outings however but ran well to finish second in a first time tongue tie (retained) on return to action at Chepstow a month ago.

Beat Templehills by 15L over an extended 2m3f at Chepstow last month but found life much tougher when pulled up in a Grade 3 at Cheltenham subsequently. Races off a mark 6lb higher than for that latest success.

Winning for the first time since joining this yard when impressing over 2m4f at Sandown (good-to-soft) in March last year. Held in valuable handicaps in both appearances this time around but remains open to improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Value At Risk (15/8), Kylemore Lough (3/1), Cogry (11/2), Casse Tete (6/1), Templehills (15/2), Thomas Crapper (10/1), Pressurize (16/1)

Verdict

CASSE TETE can put a couple of heavy defeats behind him by registering his third chase victory in this good handicap chase. The selections handicap mark has fallen significantly as a result of those disappointing efforts and he can get back on track off a mark just 5lb higher than when winning impressively at Sandown last season. Templehills looks to be the sole pace angle in the contest and he can hold on for second having returned to form when filling the same position at Sandown last time out while the victor that day Pressurize and Value At Risk can fight it out for third.
  1. Casse Tete
