811-13OR: 131D
2/1

Hits the frame quite often without getting his head in front, which was the case again at Ludlow last time. Has not been given much respite by the handicapper and remains vulnerable, but stable is back in form.

8/1

Winner of one of his four starts over fences and was not disgraced when third of eight at Southwell on his latest outing. Not obviously well handicapped, however.

1011-11OR: 129
6/1

Recorded his seventh win over fences when scoring on heavy ground at Wincanton in March, beating Little Jon by 3L. A 7lb rise is harsh enough, however, and this faster surface may not be ideal.

811-11OR: 129
14/1

Has failed to beat a rival on last three starts, each of them over hurdles. Reverts to fences with plenty to prove.

711-6OR: 124
9/1

Prominent racer who normally runs well but has become weak in the finish. Down to last winning mark, however.

8/1

Veteran performer who has won four times over fences and has produced all his best form at around 2m. Nicely weighted on his best form.

20/1

Pulled up on soft ground at Market Rasen last time, but had previously been running with credit, especially on sound surfaces. May prefer further, but is not out of it.

1011-5OR: 123BF
5/1

Came a cropper at Ludlow last time, but had previously chased home Somchine at Wincanton. He has a 7lb pull for a 3L beating so has to be considered despite his long, losing streak.

Last RunWatch last race

1211-5OR: 123D
8/1

Won and finished third on only two starts last season, both on good ground. Feasibly weighted and enters calculations even though he hes reached the veteran stage.

Betting

Forecast

Poker School (2/1), Little Jon (5/1), Somchine (6/1), Robbing The Prey (8/1), Pearls Legend (8/1), Rear Admiral (8/1), Derintoher Yank (9/1), Raven's Tower (14/1), Strongly Suggested (20/1)

Verdict

Little Jon is weighted to turn the tables on Somchine, but has not won for ages and is hard to recommend. Strongly Suggested is better over farther and Pearls Legend more effective over shorter, so the vote goes to bottom-weight REAR ADMIRAL, who may be at the veteran stage but ran well last time and acts on this sort of surface. Top-weight Poker School may give him most to do.
  1. Rear Admiral
  2. Poker School
