611-2OR:
18/1

Tailed off at big prices on three starts so far, latest at Stratford last month, and needs an awful lot of improvement to get anywhere near the best of these.

511-2OR:
11/2

Dam an unraced half-sister to useful chaser A Good Skin, but he didn't show enough on debut when well beaten at Chepstow to think he's a threat here. Cheekpieces and tongue tie both given a try here, but others preferred.

Finished 11L third in C&D novice hurdle earlier this month on hurdles bow, may be capable of improving on that effort.

611-2OR: 112
10/11

Hurdling form is a mixed bag but an official rating of 112 suggests he should have his claims in what isn't the strongest contest on paper.

Betting

Forecast

Take Em Out (10/11), Pontresina (11/10), In The Pipeline (2/1), Flemenstrix (11/2), Change Ur Tune (18/1), Watch Me Bop Bop (25/1)

Verdict

PONTREISINA might well have opened his account last time at Kempton had he met the final flight better. This look a good chance for him to get off the mark. On ratings, Take Em Out is the nearest pursuer while In The Pipeline was third over C&D last time out and should hold similar aspirations in this field.
