4/1

His win over hurdles came in a match last year over this sort of trip in a Huntingdon novice. Ran with some credit in all his subsequent starts until proving very disappointing last time out (cheekpieces on) making mistakes; more needed.

Appeared to have been rejuvenated last summer but running on the Flat where he won three times. That improvement didn't appear to carry over back in this sphere and he ran poorly after a break back over hurdles; not one to trust.

8/1

Lightly-raced since his two last hurdles win (September 2016) and the wind surgery that he's had in the interim doesn't look to have worked that well. Never a threat over shorter here last time it remains to be seen how he copes with 3m.

Last win came in the tongue-tie/cheekpieces combination and he duly struck with that blend of headgear used again last time out at Market Rasen. Shaped just like his old self last time and there could be more to come even off this mark.

A change of headgear (blinkers) allowed him to make all the pieces fit over just short if 3m at Worcester last summer off this same mark but over fences. Rather inconsistent since in that sphere he now reverts to hurdles with questions to answer.

Took a weak race on his penultimate start with the first-time tongue-tie on after a wind op appearing to really help. Found out under a penalty last time although the race may have come too soon at Stratford last time.

Scored on her handicap debut after a short break and looked to be going the right way but not seen again until over a year later. Ran with credit on that occasion and just 1lb higher here; could well be of interest.

The break that refreshes worked a treat with this one when she won a Ludlow handicap last month returning to form. Failed to follow up that run blowing out in a higher grade and this is another step up.

A switch to handicaps and some better ground saw him score on his debut over 4f shorter here last time (travelled well, drew clear, won easily). Given a 10lb rise for that win he has to now prove that he can improve again in a higher grade.

Betting

Forecast

Bodega (9/4), Beneagles (4/1), Marble Moon (11/2), Rolling Maul (7/1), Lady Markby (7/1), Iniciar (8/1), The Flame (12/1), Maggio (20/1), Dr Robin (25/1), Ayla's Emperor (28/1)

Verdict

The two last time out winners have to be of interest here although Marble Moon has to prove that he can handle not only a rise in the weights but also a sharp escalation in grade from a 0-100 to a 0-125 but he does look to have improvement in him. It may be safer though to rely on BODEGA who was an impressive winner last time and with 10lb claimer Edward Austin taking over the steering the rise in the weights is cancelled out. Lady Markby should be able to get involved as could Iniciar who features off a good mark if he stays this trip. The Flame should be watched in the market as any support would indicate he was capable of coming back from a shocker last time.
