611-2OR: 116WS
5/2

Looked useful when second at Aintree in November (travelled well) but stuffed out of sight in two runs since. Has had wind surgery, which gives a clue as to what the issue may have been, and if returning to form, will be a threat.

Looked green and in need of time (and more of a trip, which he gets here) when staying on late in a Bangor bumper on debut last month. Will improve but a bit to find on the bare form.

Didn't complete in two point-to-points and not seen out since last November. No realistic chance here.

4/1

Has put together a series of consistent efforts without getting his head in front, again ran to that level when fourth at Uttoxeter last time. Form is there, and obvious candidate for the frame, but a surprise if something doesn't improve past him.

511-2OR: WS
16/1

Cost £78,000 Cheltenham sales 2016, makes debut today but slightly disconcerting to see he's had wind surgery already. Chase winners on the dam's side but best watched today unless the market says otherwise.

5/6

Looked very useful when slamming Mont Des Avaloirs on bumper debut last year, yet to reproduce that over hurdles but much better latest when second at Carlisle and this better ground likely to suit. Must hold strong chances here.

610-9OR:
100/1

No immediate promise in three starts although shaped a bit better at Sedgefield last time. May be one for low-grade handicaps down the line, but this looks too tough for her at this stage.

Betting

Forecast

Truckers Lodge (5/6), Imperial Eloquence (5/2), Sonic (4/1), Flemenstrix (10/1), Springbok Seia (16/1), Mr Macho (20/1), Born A Saint (25/1), Our Uncle Pat (66/1), Lammturner (100/1)

Verdict

TRUCKERS LODGE has some good bumper form to his name and after a couple of goes over hurdles, looks set to make it third time lucky. Better ground here should help his cause and if putting in a clear round, looks the one to beat. Imperial Eloquence has some moderate efforts to put behind him but a recent wind operation may well turn his fortunes around. Sonic is likely to run his race again and pick some place money up.
