511-6OR: D
8/1

Cost a paltry £800 in September 2016 and left all previous form well behind when forging clear to win at odds of 66/1 at Kelso in May (2m good); hard to evaluate accurately.

10/11

More or less gifted the race by the recalcitrant Jumping Jack when winning at Plumpton last month (2m good), but ran to a similar level of form when finishing third at Cartmel latest.

611-0OR:
5/1

Had plenty of time between his two starts in bumpers, but ran well enough when a runner up at Ayr in November 2017. Makes his hurdles debut after another absence, but is a half-brother to the 2m-2m3f winning hurdler/chaser Verni.

511-0OR:
150/1

Cost just £800 as a three-year-old and not bred for a jumps career; 125/1 and tailed off over C&D on hurdles debut in May; no chance.

511-0OR:
150/1

Out of the 2m-2m5f chase winner Posh Stick, and a half-brother to point-to-point winner Ripstick, so hurdling (poor thus far) is unlikely to be his long-term objective.

511-0OR: BF
3/1

Showed a modicum of ability in Ireland for Elizabeth Doyle, and placed in two of his four starts for this trainer, including when finishing 7¼L third to Kick On Dottie over 2m4f here last month.

811-0OR:
66/1

0 from 4 under rules for Keith Reveley and also a 12-race point-to-point maiden. Makes no appeal on his first rules start since August 2016.

611-0OR:
10/1

Six-race maiden who did manage to make the frame in a Sedgefield bumper in October 2017; better suited by the handicap hurdle option imminently.

711-0OR:
100/1

A sorry tale in four career starts (including in two point-to-points for Niall Kelleher); all sorts of headgear now applied.

811-0OR:

Lacked fluency and pulled up on hurdles debut at Perth (2m4f good) last month on his first outing for 18 months.

410-11OR:
50/1

11-race Flat maiden who tries the hurdling option now after being well beaten in a Ripon seller (1m2f) last month.

410-4OR:
33/1

Lost her way since a productive spell on the Flat at a lowly level in May/June 2017 (dual 1m4f winner); 100/1 and never really in the hunt on hurdles debut at Market Rasen (2m good) last month.

Betting

Forecast

Crushed (10/11), High Jinx (11/8), Macardle (3/1), Calach (5/1), Placedela Concorde (8/1), Mutawaasel (10/1), Siannes Star (25/1), Dyna Might (33/1), Single Estate (50/1), Solway Storm (50/1), Mafate Fortin (66/1), Our Uncle Pat (100/1), Cudgel (150/1), Coastley Lane (150/1)

Verdict

A race which is there for the taking for HIGH JINX assuming that he turns out quickly after an intended run at Aintree on Friday Evening; should he fail to take up this engagement, then Crushed looks to be by far the most sensible option in an otherwise uninspiring contest.
