1012-2OR: 131D
13/8

Dictated from the front when winning a Kempton hunter chase last time (2m4f) on quick ground returning from a year's plus break. Didn't need to be at his best to win that and should go close here despite the penalty; has won over this trip.

20/1

Has won under Rules (highest winning mark 110) and is a winning pointer-to-pointer this year (runner-up last time). Likely to find this far more exacting than those exploits though and pulled-up on his last two Rules starts.

20/1

Fair hurdler/chaser when with Peter Bowen but finished a remote third in his only hunter chase for this yard at Fontwell. Has been pulled-up in a point-to-point since then at High Easter (5/1 chance) and will be this a lot harder.

11/2

Failed to win in four Irish point-to-points but did win a maiden hurdle when with Alistair Whillans by 12L. Failed to show much for Dan Skelton although didn't fare badly after a wind op on his first hunter chase run for this yard; place chance.

5/4

Scored in consecutive handicap chase runs in mid-2016 but failed to impress for the most part in four subsequent handicap outings. Back from a break and dropped in grade to his first hunter chase he shaped well last time; should do better here.

Betting

Forecast

Royalraise (5/4), Port Melon (13/8), Right Of Reply (11/2), Sentimentaljourney (8/1), Bene Regina (14/1), Letbeso (20/1), High Kite (20/1)

Verdict

Not a bad race of its type with ROYALRAISE taken to build on his sound run in a good-quality hunter chase at Southwell last time. Port Melon looks the biggest danger based on his front-running exploits last time out although he didn’t beat much at Kempton last time out. Of the others Right Of Reply looks to have a place chance with Bene Regina interesting on her debut getting weight from the field having run well enough in point-to-points.
