5/1
Successful three times over hurdles but failed to complete on two of her chase starts in 2016 and she is one to note on her return to fences off a mark just 2lb higher than for her most recent hurdles victory.

Victorious on heavy ground over hurdles but pulled up on soft ground at Bangor on his most recent appearance earlier this year. Worth a check in the market on chase debut.

9/1
Placed here on good-to-soft ground over hurdles last August. Well held on chase debut over 2m5f at Carlisle (soft) last time out and drop in trip and better ground forecast here should see him in a better light.

Beaten 5L when finishing third in a handicap hurdle over 2m4f at Sedgefield (good) on his final outing for Mark Walford. Market support would be interesting on stable and chase debut following a break.

Betting

Forecast

Fit For Fifty (3/1), Calivigny (4/1), Alizee De Janeiro (5/1), Dakota Grey (11/2), Vertigo (6/1), Motion To Strike (9/1), Rain In The Face (16/1), Magnolia Ridge (16/1)

Verdict

The drop in trip looks likely to suit MOTION TO STRIKE in this competitive looking contest and he can take this with the return to better ground also likely to suit. Calivigny put in a fair performance when fourth over 3m here last time out and he can finish runner-up ahead of top weight Alizee De Janeiro who was placed off a higher mark over hurdles last October.
  1. Motion To Strike
  2. Calivigny
