5/4

2-2 since joining this yard and did not have to improve by much to beat a modest field here last time. This should be tougher off 9lb higher, but his rivals have a bit to prove.

At his best when fresh and gained a hard fought third success over hurdles in May. Disappointing three weeks later but should do better having been off for two months.

Has failed to win since landing the 2015 Fred Winter for Paul Nicholls. Has developed a few quirks and was put into his latest race on the bridle only to find little when asked.

Has enjoyed the ground this summer but the handicapper appeared to have gauged him too highly based on his latest effort.

Winner of four races all on right-handed tracks. Down to his last winning mark but needs to rebound from a poor run last time.

Betting

Forecast

Mister Fizz (5/4), Cultivator (11/4), Voodoo Doll (7/2), Qualando (8/1), Star Foot (14/1)

Verdict

None of these can be described as being well-handicapped based on their latest efforts and it affords an opportunity for MISTER FIZZ to extend his winning run despite a hefty rise for his recent successes. The ten-year-old is unbeaten for his current yard and scored here last time despite hitting the front earlier than planned. Cultivator goes best fresh and it remains to be seen if a two month break proves long enough. Voodoo Doll looked in the grip of the handicapper last time when the race was not run to suit and looks a bigger threat than the other pair.
