1211-12OR: 119
20/1

Veteran Irish challenger who was sent off at 50-1 when well held off this mark at Navan last time. Looks to have plenty to do against some in-form rivals.

9/4

Won handicaps at Sedgefield and over C&D in December and there has been little wrong with two subsequent efforts off this mark. In good heart and likely to go well again.

5/2

Only win came over C&D in October, 2015, and was behind Charmant when he returned from a lengthy absence to finish seventh of 10 at Kelso in January. Shaped well that day, though, and can get involved if avoiding the "bounce" factor.

14/1

Placed twice in six starts over hurdles and is 2lb lower than when finishing well down the field at Musselburgh on his latest outing. Stable took this last year, but others still make more appeal.

5/1

Landed a 2m3f handicap at this venue in December and two good runs since have confirmed his liking for this course. Tends to race prominently and another bold show is on the cards.

7/2

Good efforts in handicaps on last three starts, two of them at this track. Not much between him and his stable companion, Trongate, and jockey booking catches the eye.

Betting

Forecast

Charmant (9/4), Imada (5/2), Our Lucas (7/2), Trongate (5/1), Graystown (14/1), Man With Van (20/1)

Verdict

Charmant is in good form and will not go down without a fight, while Imada enters the equation if coming on for his reappearance run. However, stable companions Trongate and OUR LUCAS have shown good form at this venue and the latter, in receipt of plenty of weight and with the north's top jockey on board, gets the vote.
  1. Our Lucas
  2. Trongate
  3. Charmant
