512-0OR: 102
16/1

Beaten 32L over C&D on handicap debut last month, his third run after a wind operation. Dropped 3lb, he'll likely have better to offer at some stage.

Showed promise on bumper debut last summer but has failed to progress as hoped. 100/1 and well fended off in C&D maiden last time, opening handicap mark doesn't look a soft one.

Sole hurdles win came at Southwell in February selling handicap hurdle over 2m, well held both starts over timber for new trainer, drop back to 2m is a positive though.

Winner at Market Rasen in March over similar trip on good to soft (rated 90) and has run well in both starts since, including second over this C&D. Should give another good account back here.

Best effort (from four) over hurdles came at Lingfield (2m, soft) in December but will need to improve now going handicapping having run four times on the AW since without a win.

Has run well to a point in his recent visits to this track but just seems unable to find a lot when push comes to shove. Maiden after 17 starts in both codes and likely to remain so after this.

711-8OR: 96D

Won a good ground handicap hurdle over 2m1f at Stratford in April 2017 off a mark of 103. Would have sound claims on that form but hasn't produced a lot since, including Warwick reappearance this month.

1/1

Much-improved effort last time at Southwell to land a novice handicap hurdle in ready fashion. Carries a penalty for that score but likely a big threat with a repeat effort.

Held in all six starts over hurdles, eased another 4lb but first starts since September and not great record fresh so possibly best watched today.

50/1

Beaten wide margins at Taunton and Fakenham in both recent starst, ten races without success over timber now and seems easier to look somewhere else for the winner.

Betting

Forecast

Spader (1/1), St George's Oval (5/1), The Blue Bomber (11/2), Give Him Time (6/1), Elysian Prince (15/2), Pension Madness (14/1), Silva Samourai (14/1), Deduce (16/1), Dream Baie (16/1), Stuccodor (25/1), Charlie Chaplin (40/1), Blackadder (50/1), Overrider (100/1)

Verdict

Spader improved his lot with a win at Southwell this month and will be in the mix here with a repeat showing but he does carry a penalty and isn't a certainty to turn up in the same mood, so he looks short enough in the early betting. THE BLUE BOMBER is the one that appeals most from a consistency standpoint and wouldn't be winning out of turn after some decent efforts. Pension Madness can hold place claims on his best work while Give Him Time is on a feasible mark back over hurdles.
