First start for new yard after a huge absence of over two years, definite signs of ability in three starts over hurdles then but can only guess at what ability remains now. Best watched unless market suggests otherwise.

In good form at present, dug deep to hold on by a neck over C&D two starts ago and then improved on that to finish a clear second at Market Rasen. Up another couple of pounds for that but might be a bit more left in the tank. Chances again.

Absolute tale of woe over the past 12 months, with a string of pulled-ups to show for his efforts. Hard to see why he should do any better here. although reverting to hurdles may help.

Yet to get near winning in four starts over hurdles but has been finding her feet and did run a little better than finishing position suggests at Wincanton last time. Early days for her yet and top jockey booked, so worth a second look.

Fallen miles in the handicap after some dreadful efforts over both hurdles and fences, although might have hit the frame at Catterick two starts ago but for unseating late. Weak form overall and not hard to look elsewhere.

Still a maiden after 19 starts but has shown ability on more than one occasion, and worth a try at this sort of trip as he looks one paced over shorter. Has gone okay after a break before and may be playing for places again if fit.

It's been all downhill for him so far, handicap mark falling quickly after some poor efforts and despite this being the time of year the trainer gets his winners, he's hard to fancy on what he's achieved.

Hadn't done a lot before latest effort in a seller at Worcester where he outran both his odds and mar to finish a close third. Same conditions here and if you believe the run, chance from a mark 6lb higher tonight.

Chance on form if you're willing to go back far enough and has come back from a long absence with a couple of efforts that suggest some ability remains. Plenty more needed but may get in the shake up for places if taking another step forward.

Betting

Forecast

Isle Road (11/10), West To Crossgales (2/1), Bentons Lad (9/4), Lady Vitesse (6/1), Four Mile Beach (8/1), Franz Klammer (11/1), My Anchor (20/1), Ballythomas (20/1), Wolfslair (33/1), Mister Kalanisi (50/1)

Verdict

This looks at the mercy of ISLE ROAD, who won with any amount in hand at the weekend (nicely backed) and rocks up without a penalty for that due to the nature of the race. As long as this race doesn't come too soon, he can go in again. West To Crossgales showed his first form last time and if it can be taken as gospel, would have a chance of upsetting the selection. Bentons Lad continues in good nick and should be involved in the prizegiving.
