Positive change to see him back over fences given his best run over the past year came over the larger obstacles, but still not one to rely on, especially based on his form since.

Patchy form over hurdles but fitted with first-time cheek pieces for this debut over fences and seems like the type to improve for the switch to fences, especially off this handicap mark.

Hasn't been seen for over a year but was in fair form prior to that absence. Makes her debut over fences here and easy to see her going well based on hurdles form.

Beaten 17L by Posh Totty last time out and even a big swing at the weights is unlikely to be enough for her to turn the tables on that reopposing rival.

Down the field in four outings to date (a bumper and three hurdles), and now on both handicap and chase debut needs to show marked improvement for the switch to fences.

Consistent mare who won chase debut last week having previously won a number of point-to-points. Up 11lb for an easy victory and could well defy that rise on her second start over regulation fences.

Some form in novice hurdles in early 2017, but form has since dropped off and needs a revival on this chasing debut.

On the same mark he won off over hurdles last summer, and provided there isn't any rain quick ground could suit him on debut over fences; one to consider.

Only two career victories came over hurdles in France, and 0-16 record since moving to Britain means he's tough to build a case for down another 3lb.

Betting

Forecast

Posh Totty (7/4), Good Man Vinnie (11/4), Badilou (7/1), Summer Getaway (9/1), Dancing Conquest (10/1), Bel Esprit (12/1), We'll Be There (20/1), Findusatgorcombe (20/1), Bit Of A Charlie (25/1)

Verdict

Findusatgorcombe should relish the ground and is one to consider off this mark, and Bel Esprit would have a good chance on her best hurdles form. However POSH TOTTY has won no fewer than 14 point-to-points and won a chase under rules very nicely last time out. Even up a fair way in the weights she looks set for another big run.
