10/1

Only modest efforts really in novice events and looked pretty hard work on handicap debut at Market Rasen (2m7f, good to soft) last time. Doesn't look particularly well treated and best watched for now.

11/2

Irish point-to-point winner who has looked average over hurdles so far. Has looked a touch one paced, even at this trip so the return to better ground is a bit of a worry. Still early days and improvement is possible.

Hasn't won for two years but is a fairly consistent type. Tends to run his race but likely to come across one or two that are better treated in a competitive race like this.

Has won twice in the point-to-point sphere but his Irish form under rules wasn't overly inspiring. Starts life for a new yard today and will only become of interest if the market speaks in his favour.

Now a 16-race maiden and the drop in trip at Carlisle last time did not work despite being sent off favourite. Going back up in trip on better ground is likely to help and has claims once again.

710-13OR: 92
8/1

Has been running well over the winter and won off a 9lb lower mark in November. Drop in trip last time didn't see her to best effect and should be more at home here. Makes much more appeal than most and strong contender.

Still a maiden after 13 starts and it is hard to make a case for her. Didn't beat a rival on latest start and was beaten a very log way. Similar story on the cards here.

Winning hurdler off a 2lb lower mark back in 2016. Two runs back since a long absence have shown ability is still there and may well strip fitter now. Market check advised.

Won by a wide margin at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) two starts back but struggled badly off this 14lbs higher mark over the same C&D next time. Drops back in trip here and needs to bounce back but this requires a clear career best.

Seems to be struggling with the game having been given an opening mark of 93 she has been beaten out of sight on all three handicap starts. Up in trip today and down another 5lbs but hard to enthuse about her chances.

610-6OR: 85

Has run to a similarly moderate level in all five starts over hurdles and couldn't show any improvement on his handicap debut at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) last time. 4lb drop looks of little consequence on that evidence.

Mark is gradually falling and the handicapper is giving him a chance. Took a step backwards though last time at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) when beaten 30L and needs step up in trip to spark improvement.

Although starting to look a little exposed he has largely been running ok over fences of late off this sort of mark. Was still going ok when unseating five out here last time and isn't ruled out switched back to hurdles despite being out the weights

Latest run here over 2m4f was her first run under rules for two years and there wasn't much that day to suggest this looks a workable mark. Probably best watched for now. Out the weights.

Has become very frustrating and only three career wins to date. Showed very little on return to action at Perth lately and only modest hope of any better despite looking attractively handicapped now. Races here from out the weights.

Very hard to know what to expect having been struggling off low marks when last seen in October. 7lb wrong at the weights here and a surprise to all if she's to win this.

Only win came in a three runner bumper. Doesn't look up to even this lowly level and is likely to play a very minor role.

Betting

Forecast

Rising Marienbard (11/2), Tickanrun (8/1), American Life (8/1), Lady London (8/1), Sporting Milan (10/1), Sultans Pride (10/1), Justatenner (10/1), Broadway Belle (11/1), Kitty Fisher (11/1), Mcginty's Dream (12/1), Canadian Steel (14/1), Charin' Cross (16/1), Dizoard (20/1), Rose Tree (20/1), Maureen's Star (25/1), Andhaar (50/1), Knocklayde (50/1)

Verdict

A tricky puzzle but several of these can be readily discarded. Tickandrun is better than he showed at Carlisle last time and the step back up in trip should suit him, it would be no surprise if he is the last one off the bit. Mcginty’s Dream brings the most solid form to the table and is feared now returning to hurdles. The selection is LADY LONDON who comes here having been outpaced at Perth and can get back to winning ways stepping back up in trip with conditions to suit.
  1. Lady London
  2. Mcginty's Dream
  3. Tickanrun
