912-2OR: 111
12/1

Has won three chases at up to 2m3½f, the latest at Ffos Las in April. Would handle testing ground no issue, entitled to have needed reappearance at Chepstow (2m7½f, heavy) last month but still high enough in the ratings on form.

9/4

Has won two chases over 3m/3m1f, inc. on soft. Returned from more than 600 days off this season and best effort to date when 1L second of six at Leicester (2m6½f, soft) last month. Interesting to see if he builds on that run.

Not at his best in four runs this season, did win a three-runner Plumpton handicap chase (3m1½f, good) last March off a mark of 112. On a workable mark again seemingly.

Disappointing since winning over an extended 3m1f at Plumpton (good to firm) last May. Ended a run of three pulled up efforts when well beaten at Exeter over hurdles in November on reappearance.

Once looked promising for Paul Nicholls but just 1-13 over fences for this stable and more poor efforts in there than good ones. Others preferred on form after being pulled up at Plumpton last month over similar trip (jumped poorly).

No real impact when trained by Venetia Williams, but seasonal reappearance and debut run for this stable saw him finish a respectable second of 10 at Southwell (3m1½f, good to soft) in December. Runs off the same mark and could be thereabouts.

Five-times chase winner who, though he has reached the veteran stage, continues to perform with credit. Has not won since March 2015, however, and will do well to end his losing run despite a reduced handicap mark.

Mare was an easy winner over this sort of trip at Lingfield last January on seasonal bow, though struggled in two further runs of increased mark. She's 4lb above that winning mark now but fresh might be the time to catch her.

Betting

Forecast

Shockingtimes (9/4), Redmond (10/3), Matrow's Lady (9/2), Turban (5/1), Kingston (12/1), Itoldyou (14/1), Royals And Rebels (14/1), Howlongisafoot (14/1)

Verdict

Shockingtimes was booked for a winning return over a longer trip here in October until falling late on. He has his chance over this trip having finished second at Leicester last time but he refused late in the piece at Wincanton in between times and does have risks. Redmond shaped with plenty promise at Southwell on debut for this yard at Southwell in December and should be in the mix but this might be the best time to catch MATROW'S LADY. She's rated must 4lb higher than when making an easy winning reappearance at Lingfield last season and does tend to go well fresh. In a wide open contest, she can go well from the foot of the weights.
