Holryalep1,t25
611-5OR: 117D
5/6

Gained due reward for some close calls in previous starts when scrambling home over this trip at Uttoxeter last time out. Has to give away weight all round but should still give another good account of himself in first time cheekpieces.

610-12OR:
7/2

Won Tralee maiden point-to-point in Ireland six weeks ago and makes Rules debut for new connections. Related to a number of winners so is respected and market should indicate how well he's expected to go here.

910-12OR: 130D
17/2

8-24 over fences and reverts to hurdles for only the second time in his career having run poorly last three starts. Connections seeking a confidence boost and if ability remains he could be a danger.

910-12OR:
33/1

Experienced wining point-to-pointer makes belated debut under Rules in Britain. Scored twice between the flags in May before running poorly last time. More needed but not without hope.

410-9OR: BF
5/1

Delegator gelding, half-brother to six indivudal winners. Represents top yard with 21% course strike rate over the years. Has shown promise in both starts so far without looking a worldbeater but should be thereabouts and is open to improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Holryale (5/6), Ask Robin (7/2), Knighthood (5/1), Play The Ace (17/2), Rockinrolldixie (33/1)

Verdict

A trappy affair with the youngster KNIGHTHOOD taken to step up on his two efforts so far and land the spoils for the champion trainer. Holyrale has to concede weight but sets the standard on his recent winning effort, while chaser Play The Ace could easily score if rejuvenated by the switch to timber. Ex-point-to-pointers Ask Robin and Rockinrolldixie are worth monitoring for any money in the markets ahead of their respective Rules debuts.
