1111-12OR: 137D
11/1
Ran a solid race off a similar mark in a veterans handicap chase at Ascot in March when beaten just over 2L by Rathlin Rose (3m soft), and should be strongly considered at a Flat track given his run style (prominent racer).

1011-11OR: 136D
14/1
He's not seen much racing since July 2017 (Listed Summer Cup, Uttoxeter), but the forecast ground conditions will suit judged upon his back-to-back wins in April 2017 (3m-3m2f).

7/2
Extended absences have curtailed a once promising career, but the handicapper has given him a chance over fences and we know that he stays very well; up 2lb for his fine comeback Southwell second last month (3m good).

811-8OR: 133BFC
5/2
A winner on this card 12 months ago (2m4f) he's proved to be a solid acquisition for the Skelton's. Drops back to a Class 3 handicap after being found wanting in stronger races lately; finished 9½L third to Martiloo over 2m4f here latest.

28/1
Winner of this race in 2015, he also managed to win around this time in 2017 over a marathon trip at Cartmel (3m5f soft); raced sparingly since, but not over leniently handicapped.

10/3
Seemingly didn't stay the 4m trip in the Scottish National in April, but is a four-time winner from 11 starts over fences (2m4f-3m2f), and has had wind surgery since that latest start.; career best effort required off a mark of 128.

911-0OR: 125D
13/2
A 25/1 winner on his rules debut at Cheltenham in early May (3m1f+ good, Hunters' Chase); has since joined a new trainer and could have more too offer, but the handicapper hasn't taken any chances with his opening mark.

710-13OR: 124
8/1
Better efforts on his most recent couple of starts (2m-2m4f good), but still comfortably held by the winner on both occasions and yet to prove his stamina for this sort of trip.

Betting

Forecast

Petrou (5/2), Fact Of The Matter (10/3), Ballyboker Breeze (7/2), Good Man Vinnie (4/1), Knockaderry Flyer (13/2), Lofgren (8/1), No Duffer (11/1), Upswing (14/1), Silver Man (28/1)

Verdict

The eased in grade Petrou is a definite for the shortlist with past course winning form in the book coupled with the fact that the Skelton's are knocking in winners left right and centre, whilst the hat-trick seeking Good Man Vinnie needs more from a upwardly rising handicap mark. However, we'll take a chance on the top-weight NO DUFFER. He likes to front run and at a track which will play to those strengths also has conditions to suit (3m, good ground).
  1. No Duffer
  2. Ballyboker Breeze
  3. Petrou
