69-11OR: D
2/5

Useful 130-rated hurdler who went close to winning a 1m4f maiden at Lingfield last month before readily winning a similar event next time. No surprise if he was up to defying a penalty in this company.

89-4OR:
16/1

Shown little over hurdles/bumpers to date, and was unfancied when making a belated Flat debut over C&D last month, finishing third of four behind Night of Glory. Didn't disgraced himself that day but still hard to get excited about.

79-4OR:
66/1

Has hinted at ability in bumpers/ hurdles but has ultimately failed to get off the mark in seven attempts in that sphere. Beaten over 16L behind American Gigolo on second Flat run recently and hard to envisage him turning that around.

79-4OR:
4/1

Bits and pieces of form over jumps and has made a decent fist of things in two runs on the Flat so far, finishing 4L behind American Gigolo at Lingfield. Should make a good race of it here on 7lb better terms.

59-4OR:
33/1

Has a decent pedigree but has failed to kick on from a decent bumper debut, finishing stone last in that sphere at Musselburgh last month on his first start since wind surgery. Questions to answer on his Flat debut.

49-2OR:
8/1

Changed hands relatively cheaply last summer and didn't pull up any trees on his debut when beaten over 10L in fifth behind American Gigolo at Lingfield. Reopposes on 7lb better terms but that's unlikely to be enough.

Betting

Forecast

American Gigolo (2/5), Give Him Time (4/1), Insomniac (8/1), Arctic Chief (16/1), Wimpole (33/1), Faheem (66/1)

Verdict

Useful hurdler AMERICAN GIGOLO had Give Him Time (beaten 4L), Insomniac (beaten 10½L) and Faheem (beaten 16½L) in arrears when decisively opening his Flat account at Lingfield earlier this month and looks good enough to confirm form with that trio on 7lb worse terms, though Give Him Time may not be a pushover. The remaining pair Arctic Chief and Wimpole are hard to enthuse over.
  1. American Gigolo
  2. Give Him Time
  3. Insomniac
