811-12OR: 137CD
5/4
Consistent and progressive novice who showed good battling qualities to win a handicap at Haydock. Up 1lb and likely to be in the thick of things again for last year's winning yard.

5/1
Winner of four of his 18 races over fences, but has not been at his best on his latest starts. Handicap mark is falling and he is likely to pop up again at some stage.

11/2
Fair handicap hurdler who is 0-4 over fences, but has finished runner-up twice. Has dropped to an appealing mark and won twice over timber on soft, so has fair claims with regular rider on board.

11/1
C&D winner in January, last year, but latest efforts over hurdles have been disappointing. Return to fences needs to have a positive effect, as do first-time cheekpieces.

3/1
Only three runs over fences and seemed to find 3m taxing his stamina when pulling up at Uttoxeter on his latest start. Still early days for him and he is not without ability.

Betting

Forecast

Lake View Lad (5/4), Quietly (3/1), Bernardelli (5/1), Cooking Fat (11/2), Master Ruffit (11/1)

Verdict

Bernadelli is slipping to a lenient mark and could pose a threat, while bottom-weight Quietly is open to improvement and can get involved off this mark. However, the two to concentrate on may be Cooking Fat, who remains capable of better over fences, and top-weight LAKE VIEW LAD. The selection is progressive and can be relied on to run his race.
  1. Lake View Lad
  2. Cooking Fat
  3. Quietly
