7/4

Wins over 1m½f at Hamilton and 1m2f at Beverley this term split by a third over hurdles at Huntingdon. A little keen latest when fourth at York and that a little concerning now upped in trip but form rock solid.

Winning hurdler won off this mark on the flat in early 2016. Been point-to-pointing last couple of years so return to racing under rules and in new yard means he's not the easiest to try and gauge.

Dual scorer on the AW for Keith Dalgleish but not seen since March. Starts out for new yard here and suspect he will soon be plying his trade over hurdles. Fitness and surface question marks.

7/1

2017 C&D maiden winner ran promising races at Chester and Wetherby before upped to a class 3 back at Chester where he found life tougher. Competitive at this level and wears first-time blinkers.

Close third in this race last year beaten just ¾L. Just two races since and off since last of four at Southwell in March. Handicap mark appealing as he starts out for a new yard but fitness is a doubt.

Left a poor AW run behind when only beaten ¾L last time out over 1m2f at Yarmouth carrying top-weight. Has won over this trip at Windsor so step up probably in his favour and everything points to a good run here.

8/1

Maiden of 11 starts has bits of form with ratings in the mid 60s that would suggest she can win a race off her now mark of 60 but last two runs at Thirsk and Hamilton uninspiring so others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Maifalki (7/4), Medalla De Oro (5/2), Busy Street (6/1), Maghfoor (7/1), Mac O'polo (8/1), Kajaki (8/1), Iftiraaq (12/1), Acker Bilk (20/1)

Verdict

Former Saeed Bin Suroor inmate MAGHFOOR is yet to win for current connections but has run well a couple of times this season. The fitting of blinkers could suit a horse who hasn't always looked the easiest to ride in a finish and he gets the nod here. Top-weight Maifalki has won twice this season already so merits maximum respect but this trip is further than he has previously won over. Medalla De Oro ran well last time out at Yarmouth and should be in the shake up once again.
