2/1

Taken really well to fences and won a handicap at Worcester (2m½f, good) with relative ease two weeks ago. That form gives him sound claims here although the penalty does make life tougher. Should make life tough for Diakali at least.

1/2

Smart hurdler. A little head strong but absolutely bolted up on chasing debut at Fontwell (2m2f, good) 10 days ago. Slight drop back in trip fine and should be very hard to beat if in the same mood here, especially getting weight off Capitoul.

910-12OR:
66/1

Point-to-point winner at Kingston Blount three weeks ago. Beaten a long way on two rules starts over hurdles back in 2015 and likely to find this very tough going.

80/1

Poor hurdler who has shown very little in that sphere (rated 87). Some way off what is required to be involved here. Makes chasing debut and up against it.

9/1

Fair hurdler and only having her second start over fences here. Beaten 45L by Capitoul at Huntingdon last time and has a huge task on to reverse that form.

Betting

Forecast

Diakali (1/2), Capitoul (2/1), Miss Night Owl (9/1), Intercooler Turbo (66/1), Monar Lad (80/1)

Verdict

This looks a straight match between Capitoul and DIAKALI. Clear preference is for the latter who had some really smart form in Ireland over hurdles and made a highly promising start over fences last time. Capitoul has taken really well to fences but may just struggle to give weight away to such a classy rival.
