Placed on both starts at the track and, in the main, has been in good form this spring/autumn. Mistake cost him any chance at Uttoxeter last time but this looks less taxing and he could easily get back to winning ways.

8/1
Capable handicap chaser on his day but well below form at Uttoxeter last time out, may still be a few pounds too high in the handicap and might find this ground lively enough. Others make more appeal.

Ran better at Ludlow last time (second run after wind operation) after being outclassed at Aintree the time before. Came good around this time last year but the worry is that his best form has come right-handed.

11/8
Looked mildy progressive last season but that has stalled somewhat in recent times. Connections now give cheekpieces a try but has become hard to win with. Hard to rule out, given conditions fine, but on balance, others preferred.

9/2
Has looked a weak finisher at times but did nothing wrong when a good winner at Huntingdon last October and ran well on comeback after absence when second at Southwell. James Bowen takes over from amateur, and others can't allow him too much rope.

Useful enough chaser for John Mackie back in the day but recent form littered with pulled-ups and has no realistic chance from so far out of the handicap here.

Betting

Forecast

Poker School (11/8), Cut The Corner (4/1), Noche De Reyes (9/2), McCabe Creek (9/2), Wadswick Court (8/1), River Purple (125/1)

Verdict

For a 0-150 this is a disappointing contest, with the top weight rated just 137. That makes it no easier to solve, and it gives Cut The Corner a chance to outclass these. The small field will suit him, but the same can be said for MCCABE CREEK, who looks absolutely nailed on to get an easy lead here and with James Bowen taking over in the saddle, he can make all. Poker School may be best of the rest.
