1012-3OR: 122D
4/1

Won for the first time since 2015 at Market Rasen (2m5½f, heavy) last time out and is most effective over this sort of trip. 5lb hike will make thing tougher, but is able to compete at this level again and should be in the mix.

1011-12OR: 117D
25/1

All wins under rules have included good in the going description. Won a Musselburgh hunter chase over this trip last year and put in a decent reappearance at Kelso last month, but needs improvement to win from this mark.

1111-11OR: 116D
11/2

Been in reasonable form this winter and when the handicapper relented last time, he scored over this trip at Uttoxeter (heavy). Back up 3lb as a result of that all out success and current level of ability suggests that he might be outfaced again.

5/2

Dual C&D winner in 2016. Stays further, but has been running well at around this trip in recent races. Not far away from this mark at Market Rasen last time out and it will be a surprise if he is not involved on the run-in once again.

12/1

Both his win were over Kelso's 2m trip on heavy ground. Missed over a year before being pulled up at Ayr on his reappearance. Has now dropped 17lb for his last three chase runs to a mark that would make him interesting if supported.

17/2

Best form over hurdles was at around 2m1f, but should see out this trip and if he can brush up a little on his jumping, you couldn't rule him out of having a say from this mark.

810-5OR: 96D
3/1

Won a novices' hurdle over this trip, though both chase wins over shorter, including last time at Catterick. Up 8lb for that 7L success, which equalled his best over fences. Not ruled out, but won't find it easy defying that rise.

Betting

Forecast

Swing Hard (5/2), Oak Vintage (3/1), Until Winning (4/1), Granville Island (11/2), Mahlerdramatic (17/2), Road To Gold (12/1), Top Cat Henry (25/1)

Verdict

An interesting contest with a fairly open look to it and the suggestion is SWING HARD, who is at the very least a consistent sort who we can probably rely on to perform to a level of ability that should see him go close. Until Winning tries to back up his Market Rasen success from 5lb higher and previous form suggests that that is far from a done deal, while at the other end of the spectrum, Oak Vintage won well last time but he has an even bigger 8lb rise to contend with now. Keep a check on the market with regard to Nick Alexander's pair Top Cat Henry and Road To Gold, with the former of slightly more interest.
