10/1
Handicap hurdle debut when last seen over jumps hardly the most encouraging, but flashes of ability on the Flat since and conditional rider good value for her 3lb claim.

Consistent gelding who hasn't finished outside the first three in a race in his last seven runs. Up another 2lb but return to a sounder surface is encouraging.

Step in the right direction in a handicap hurdle last time out and dropped another 1lb, still yet to get off the mark over hurdles but his turn could be near.

7lb higher than when wining nicely at Uttoxeter two starts ago, but struggled with the rise when well-beaten at Huntingdon last time out.

Yet to win over hurdles in this country, and two slightly more promising recent efforts both came on a much softer surface than this.

Just 3lb higher than his last winning mark means he's of some interest, but last few runs (including one on the Flat) haven't been up to that standard.

Last year's winner off the same mark but form since is open to question and he's not getting any younger.

Much lower in the weights than his most recent win at Wincanton last April, but form has been very poor since and tough to see him bouncing back.

Down the field off just 1lb higher than this at this course when last seen over hurdles in September, and just one tame run on the Flat since then means he has plenty to find.

Two fair efforts since switching to handicap company and slight step up in trip here unlikely to be an issue for him. Has more potential to improve than most of these as well.

Pulled-up on all four starts in maiden/novice hurdles and impossible to recommend now switching to handicap company for the first time.

Betting

Forecast

Does It In Style (11/4), Iniesta (7/2), Ladies Dancing (5/1), Dunn's River (7/1), Silver Quay (10/1), Amour D'or (12/1), Bay Fortuna (12/1), The Kid (16/1), Mighty Missile (16/1), Taste The Wine (40/1), Keepyourheadup (50/1)

Verdict

The consistent INIESTA should be going very close in this once again. Not out of the first three on his last seven starts, he should appreciate this return to better ground and ran well in defeat here last time out. Of the others, Does It In Style could improve to go close, while Dunn's River ran a much more encouraging race at Fontwell last time out.
