1412-6OR: 119CD
7/2

Useful handicap chaser who won a hunter chase here last time out at the first time of asking. No back number but has plenty to find with Vivaldi Collonges on ratings.

5/4

Good enough to run in graded chases in his younger years, and off the mark in hunter chases at Newbury last time out; leading claims for a top trainer who does well in this sphere.

1111-12OR: 82
66/1

Patchy profile in point-to-points, and has shown next to nothing on all six starts under rules so far. Others hold much more convincing claims.

1011-12OR: 89
66/1

Yet to mount a meaningful challenge in a hunter chase to date, and also has plenty to find based on recent point-to-point form.

1011-12OR: 116
2/1

Leading when coming down in a more competitive race than this at Cheltenham last time out. Previous form would give him some form of chance in this line-up.

14/1

Previous winner over regulation fences before switching to point-to-points where he enjoyed some success. This potentially a tough ask on hunter chase debut.

Betting

Forecast

Vivaldi Collonges (5/4), Hard Station (2/1), Strumble Head (7/2), Skylander (14/1), Ambitious Pursuit (66/1), Brandy And Red (66/1)

Verdict

VIVALDI COLLONGES looks easily the best of these and should be able to build on a victory at Newbury last time out under a penalty to make fairly easy work of these. He was by far the best of them in handicaps (of those who raced in that sphere) and can demonstrate that quality here. Hard Station came down at Cheltenham last time but holds place claims on his previous form, while Strumble Head is another to consider.
