Returned to form when finishing runner-up on handicap debut over 2m at Fairyhouse (soft-to-heavy) a month ago. Likely to run well off a 3lb higher mark today.

Three time point-to-point winner but well beaten in three starts over fences and probably best watched on today's handicap debut.

Point-to-point winner and recorded her first chase victory when winning on good ground at Musselburgh in December. Softer ground forecast today not certain to suit.

Maiden after 12 starts but disqualified having won impressively at Sligo (good) in July when last seeing the racecourse. Interesting runner on just his second start over fences.

Seems to save his best efforts for Fairyhouse having won three times there and finished third at that venue last time out. Worth a check in the market today.

Betting

Forecast

Hawk Eye Down (4/1), Se Mo Laoch (9/2), Lacken Bridge (9/2), Don't Let Go (11/2), Rancher Lass (7/1), Witness Of Fashion (8/1), Hand Of The King (8/1), Leader's Choice (12/1), Attalco (25/1)

Verdict

HAWK EYE DOWN can complete a double by taking this conditional jockeys handicap chase. The selection should appreciate underfoot conditions and can record a second career success today. Don't Let Go made a pleasing handicap debut when finishing runner-up at Fairyhouse last month and she can finish second ahead of bottom weight Witness Of Fashion.
