15/8
Made all and won unchallenged when taking the Class 3 2m4f handicap chase at Perth earlier this month for the second year in succession; races under a 7lb penalty (2lb well in), and should make a bold bid despite facing competition for the lead.

7/1
Winner of this race in 2017 from a 2lb higher mark and seems certain to hustle Indian Temple for the early lead; not in the best of form so far in 2018 but a possible threat if returning to his best.

5/1
Unable to follow up his Huntingdon win (2m+ good) under a 7lb penalty at Worcester just a few days later, but did run to form in a stronger race. No back number despite his age and another who likes to race towards the fore.

7/1
Ran out a decisive 10L winner (off a 7lb lower mark) at Ludlow (2m good) on his penultimate start and holds potential trip excuses for his most recent Uttoxeter defeat; requires a career best performance nevertheless.

11/4
Fair to say that he's a very questionable character attitude wise (travels well and fails to deliver); has the required ability but lacks the resolution, so almost always opposed.

10/1
Ageing handicapper who generally can be relied upon to run his usual solid race but hasn't won in over 12 months (from this mark); enjoys being up with the pace like so many of these runners.

A two-time hurdles winner for Oliver Greenall. In the process of running a solid race on his second start over fences when falling two out at Newcastle in November (2m good), but broke a blood vessel when well beaten at Sedgefield last month.

Betting

Forecast

Indian Temple (15/8), Champagne At Tara (11/4), Free Stone Hill (10/3), Pearls Legend (5/1), Theflyingportrait (7/1), Valseur Du Granval (7/1), Ifandbutwhynot (10/1), Un Beau Roman (20/1), Gris De Pron (40/1)

Verdict

Pace a plenty, so the recent emphatic Perth winner INDIAN TEMPLE is unlikely to have the uncontested lead he was afforded that sunny Sunday afternoon in Scotland. However, he's a thoroughly genuine horse (unlike a couple of the others) and showed similar speed at this track on his penultimate start (2m4f) before folding to finish a creditable 7L second to Martiloo; so the drop back in trip to 2m is certainly no negative.
