911-12OR: 100CD
7/1

Hurdles winner here last year over 2m off a mark of 106, struggled to land any blow in three chase starts, including when pulled up in a Newton Abbot handicap over 2m5f in September. Down in trip for return.

Well held in bumpers and over hurdles when last seen making very little impact and was handed a stiff-looking mark for her handicap debut. Now switches to fences; risky proposition.

Finished just under 7L third of 10 at Warwick on chase bow this month (2m, good), which was an improvement on hurdles form. Likely will have more to come with that experience bagged.

7/2

Modest sort with a 1-19 record over fences, win coming at Huntingdon (regular there) over 2m4f in November 2016. Not a lot to enthuse about since, including two runs this spring over this sort of trip.

Returned from a 900-day absence and failed to ignite in starts at Fontwell and Plumpton last month (both over further), will need to see some positives before willing to weigh in behind. Previous wins came in 2014.

11/4

Worcester winner in 2016 over this sort of trip, posted a solid effort there earlier this month when runner-up over the trip from a rating of 73. Anything but consistent but has won around here before and second in February.

Betting

Forecast

Windspiel (13/8), Heurtevent (11/4), Trojan Star (7/2), While You Wait (7/1), Try Catch Me (16/1), Westerberry (25/1), Sussex Road (100/1)

Verdict

WINDSPIEL made a decent fist of things on chase bow at Warwick and may prove a better chase than he was a hurdler, with improvement deemed likely, he can step up on his third place finish there. Heurtevent has been waiting a fair while on a win but tends to go well here and looks a danger. The remainder have plenty to think about, with Westerberry potentially an improver sent chasing.
