712-1OR: 122BFD
11/1

Never ever threatened after being gifted an easy lead on his penultimate start at Kempton (2m4f+ novices), but not in the same fettle off this mark at Newton Abbot latest; needs to lead in order to perform.

11/1

Has won on a further three occasions (all at Towcester) since recording back-to-back C&D victories in early 2017 (good), so plenty to like about his attitude/reliability; ground fine but 6lb above his last winning mark.

20/1

No win since December 2016 and could only keep on at the one pace over a similar trip at Bangor last month when finishing just under 9L third to Zolfo; improvement needed.

611-7OR: 114
12/1

Well backed when a game hurdles winner at Market Rasen in early April (2m4f+ heavy), but looked far from a natural over fences on debut at Towcester latest, so this probably rates as another learning experience; others stronger.

10/3

Beaten in a match here last month (2m) on his first start since wind surgery (also his chase debut). Permitted to be sharper and fitter for that outing but remains a rules maiden at present (0 from 7).

6/4

Made it two on the bounce (both over C&D) when absolutely hacking up last week and looks well treated under similar conditions with just a 7lb penalty; now 6 from 11 for this in-form trainer/jockey combination.

711-0OR: 107BFD
5/1

Largely consistent, but no star and it was only a selling chase that he won at Ffos Las in April (2m3f+ soft). Trip, ground, track probably all suitable but a few of the others hold more compelling claims.

Betting

Forecast

Too Many Diamonds (6/4), Copper West (10/3), Alf 'n' Dor (5/1), Bestwork (11/1), Riddlestown (11/1), Reckless Behavior (12/1), Foundation Man (20/1)

Verdict

Riddlestown is a very likeable C&D winning chaser, but he has his work cut out tonight against the thriving TOO MANY DIAMONDS. Dan Skelton knows exactly how to get the best out of this horse (6 from 11 for the stable), and with last week's romp very much in the forefront of mind, he looks impossible to oppose under the statutory 7lb penalty.
