9/2
Enterprisingly ridden by today's rider when scoring a half length success over C&D last month but has incurred a 6lb rise in the weights which will make life much tougher. Should run well but faces no easy task off top weight.

Won three out of four over fences in the autumn but went up 26lb for his troubles. No surprise connections bid to exploit 13lb lower mark over hurdles and a bold show is not out of the question under his amateur pilot.

Looked as if the run would bring him on when seeming to blow up over C&D last time on first run for three months. Should be spot on now and rates a candidate on overall profile.

Only hurdles success came over 6f further for previous connections and hasn't been runnng well of late. Drops back to the minimum trip which isn't certain to suit, but any market move would be interesting as he represents a very shrewd yard.

Winner on the Flat and over hurdles for previous connections in France, and has shown promise in two novice hurdles so far for current yard. Handicap bow here and market should indicate if a bold show is anticipated.

Third three times in the autumn prior to winter break. Ran foar too free on reappearance here last time out and paid the price, tiring quickly form 3 out. Can do better if able to settle early as looks fairly wieghted.

26 races without a win both on the Flat and jumps in Ireland but has show ability on numerous occasion without converting it into a victory. First start for new yard and has had wind operation so might do better now.

Landed juvenile hurdle at Sedgefield in October but was well beaten on handicap debut at Huntingdon last time out. Has had wind surgery since and also been dropped 3lb but others make more appeal.

Three wins on the Flat at up to 1m2f but hasn't shown much in three starts over hurdles and doesn't look a natural. Seems unlikely to exploit current handicap amrk.

Yet to reach a place in seven starts and was beaten out of sight last time on handicap hurdle debut, eventually pulling up over this C&D last week. Impossible to enthuse over.

Betting

Forecast

Weightfordave (5/2), Haafapiece (3/1), Regulation (9/2), Jaboticaba (8/1), Exitas (8/1), New Millennium (12/1), Deebaj (16/1), Level Of Intensity (20/1), Isis Blue (66/1), Legend Of France (100/1)

Verdict

In a tricky finale HAAFAPIECE is the suggestion having shaped as though he was coming to hand when fourth over C&D at the end of last month. There are plenty of other contenders, including top weight Regulation who bids to follow up his C&D win last time out. Exitas has the look of a potentially well handicapped horse if he can transfer his chase form to timber, while Jaboticaba and Weightfordave also have claims and may attract market interest.
