14/1

Only had two starts so far this year and has been pulled-up and then well beaten. Mark is dropping quickly as a result but hard to make a strong case for unless the market spoke strongly in his favour. Leading rider keeps the faith.

Now a 15-race maiden and hasn't looked anywhere like being ready to strike of late. Slipping down the weights but others are much preferred.

Usually held up in his races and can travel strongly. Still in with a big shout when falling two out at Southwell last time. Was hampered early in that contest too so did well to get involved. Major player off the same mark here.

Has tumbled down the weights of late and showed a sign last time that a return to form may not be that far away. Makes chasing debut here and wouldn't be without a squeak if taking to fences.

Certainly has the ability to win a race of this nature but his jumping has let him down at times. Ran well for a long way at Huntingdon last time and is 4lb lower now. Jumping needs to hold up.

13/8

Hasn't won in any of his 12 starts overall (six under rules). Has been given a wind operation and switched to a yard that do so well with this time. Makes handicap chase debut at market check very much needed here.

Was tailed off when refusing at the last on chase debut at Clonmel in March. Starts life for a new yard today and is pitched straight into a handicap. Yard more than capable of improving one and market check needed.

Only had two starts so far this year having been off the track for a year. Both runs have showed mild promise and with peak fitness now assured, he is more than capable of going well.

His last four starts have all come at Hexham and was sent off favourite last time when ultimately well beaten. Now a maiden after 22 starts and easy to pass over for win purposes.

0-15 in his career so far, and despite a couple of slightly improved efforts at Southwell recently he was disappointing at Worcester last time. Others preferred.

Poor efforts have seen his mark in free fall of late. Whilst he continues to look dangerously well handicapped, performance on the track remains poor. Out the weights once again and little appeal.

Badly out of form and out the weights once again. Long standing maiden and very easy to pass over. Likely to struggle once more.

Betting

Forecast

Premier King (13/8), Samson (5/1), Nemean Lion (5/1), Viva Rafa (8/1), Southport (14/1), Flamingo Lane (14/1), Alexander The Grey (16/1), King Golan (20/1), Rock N'stones (20/1), Brinestine (25/1), Super Lunar (33/1), Daydream Island (66/1)

Verdict

It is not hard to put a line through a lot of these on recent evidence. The two stable switchers Premier King and Flamingo Lane are both worth a market check as their new yards are more than capable of getting plenty of improvement out of them. Preference here though is for VIVA RAFA who was still going well when falling two-out at Sotuhwell last time. He can take advantage today and finally get off the mark.
  1. Viva Rafa
  2. Premier King
  3. Flamingo Lane
