11/10

Ran a fair race last time going down narrowly in a similar class race having found some form on his previous run. Putting together two decent runs was a step forward on his previous form for this yard; his last win came here over 2f further.

Mixed hurdles with the Flat since transferring to this yard (has won on the AW) but proved a real disappointment when last seen over hurdles. Now returns after a break off the same mark; looked as though his attitude might be a problem last time.

6/1

Unreliable customer who often goes without any zest and can look a hard ride. Has run creditably to be placed a couple of times here in the past but not one to trust overall despite a laudable run last time; quicker conditions not sure to suit.

With his chasing career aborted he finally got off the mark back over hurdles (cheekpieces first-time) despite running in snatches for most of the race at Wincanton. Looked disinterested for much of the race last time; caution advised.

Cheekpieces on for the first-time but has looked short of ability over hurdles so far (has won a point-to-point). Hopes now pinned on a first run in handicaps over hurdles off a lowly mark.

Looked a slow burner for this yard (previously with Dan Skelton) but scored on her second handicap start beating an inadequate field when favourite at Fakenham (2m4f, heavy). Two below par efforts posted since and first run on ground this quick.

On a long losing run and at least showed a little more last time out but showing no real sign of taking advantage of a much reduced mark. Falls another 5lb in the weights from his last run with headgear (visor) now removed.

Hard to fashion a case for this one who offered little having returned from almost a year off last time. Five non-completions for this yard from seven starts probably tell the story; unreliable sort.

Betting

Forecast

Druid's Folly (11/10), Edward Elgar (6/1), Modulus (6/1), Kastani Beach (7/1), Banff (15/2), Barney From Tyanee (9/1), Bisoubisou (10/1), Visible Light (12/1), Gentleman Farmer (14/1), Thefriendlygremlin (66/1)

Verdict

Hardly the most reliable bunch to get involved with but at least DRUID'S FOLLY has managed to put two decent runs together now and he has won around this course which is a major plus in this field. The chances are that Banff is better than this mark but he looked a little temperamental last time and looks a hard one to totally trust although he has to be respected in this grade. Modulus would be capable of winning off this mark if he can recover some zip and the stamina test that this course provides should suit Barney From Tyanee. Visible Light would be a danger to all off this mark if he was ready after a long break having looked progressive when last seen.
