9/4

Looked to be on the downgrade before bouncing back to form at Newton Abbot last time. Gets to race off the same mark here so has to be considered once again.

9/1

Newbury juvenile hurdle winner last season who's form has really tailed off this year. Dropping in the weights as a result but sharp return to form needed to take this.

Bombed out on handicap debut at Bangor last month having shaped ok in some novice events earlier. Had a wind operation on the back of that and improvement is likely at some stage.

Didn't seem to stay the 2m4f here last time and is better judged on his earlier effort at Ludlow. Chance of improvement coming dropping back in trip.

Been in pretty good form this year mixing up fences and hurdles. This mark should be within his reach and returns here after a short break for a wind operation.

Improved on the flat when he switched to this yard. Not shown much in his three qualifying runs and likelihood that handicaps were always the plan. Not sure he deserves a mark this high though and probably worth taking on.

Ran out a ready winner on first start for this yard at Market Rasen on the back of a wind operation a Market Rasen. Couldn't follow up over this C&D last time and has been nudged up a total of 11lb now. Needs to do more to win again.

Won on return to hurdles here over 2m4f last time, but 5lb rise looks hefty enough given what he achieved and over two years since he won off a mark of 100+.

Stayed on well to win easily at Wincanton in May. Struggled in two starts since of her revised mark and looks up against it once again here.

Not done a great deal under rules and was pretty disappointing over fences last time. Suspect that he wants a bit of cut in the ground to be at his best.

Couldn't build on an encouraging effort when being pulled up at Hexham last time. Cheekpieces replace the visor today and despite being well handicapped he's hard to recommend at present.

Betting

Forecast

Barkis (9/4), Baron Von Chill (5/2), Take The High Road (6/1), Djarkevi (8/1), Makethedifference (8/1), Dinsdale (9/1), St John's (9/1), Caviar D'Allen (9/1), Grams And Ounces (10/1), Ballyandrew (16/1), Shufoog (20/1), Compatriot (33/1)

Verdict

Barkis finally got his head in front last time and can go well again if in the same mood. Caviar D'Allen returns on the back of a wind operation and will have sound claims if running up to his best. A chance is taken that TAKE THE HIGH ROAD can win on handicap debut on first start for his new yard.
