16/1

Not been seen since winning back-to-back races over this trip at Ludlow almost a year ago. 6lb higher than for the last of those wins and chances are that this run may well be needed. Possibly more to come this season and not discounted.

Won at Kempton (2m, soft) in February off the back of a 14-month layoff but has run poorly in three starts since from increased mark. Needs this longer trip to bring about improvement.

Picked things up when winning handicap hurdle at Fontwell over shorter last month, has since run well at Plumpton (second) and is likely to be thereabouts again.

Winning handicap debut at Worcester (2m, soft) in November, poor next time out at Doncaster and off since. Decent chance he'll leave that run behind.

Reached a rating of 90 on the Flat, hasn't managed to register in seven hurdles outings to date, though has shaped with promise on occasions. High enough in ratings but entitled to each-way claims.

Hasn't shown a lot in novice/maiden hurdles so far, represents respected connections however and improved showing now handicapping wouldn't be a big surprise.

Irish bumper winner has shaped with purpose over hurdles on occasion, including at Ludlow (2m5f, soft) last month on return from a break when 4L third of 10. Undergone wind surgery since, could aid his cause.

Fair handicapper on the Flat for Sir Mark Prescott, improved from hurdling debut when second at Ludlow next time, though not as good in one run since. Still has plenty time on his side.

Betting

Forecast

Mellow Ben (15/8), Second Time Around (4/1), Third Estate (9/2), Wind Place And Sho (15/2), David's Phoebe (11/1), Guards Chapel (14/1), Alberta (14/1), Ready And Able (16/1), Whatthebutlersaw (16/1), Veiled Secret (16/1), Trafalgar Rock (100/1)

Verdict

THIRD ESTATE was entitled to need the outing at Ludlow on his return and he shaped nicely, despite an awkward head carriage. He's undergone a wind op since and the booking of Richard Johnson looks a positive now. Fontwell winner Mellow Ben is in good form and should make a bid while David's Phoebe and Wind Place And Sho are worth closer inspection.
