Exxarob,t42
811-6OR: 125D
9/4

Appreciated the strong pace to end a losing run at Uttoxeter and that was the case again when third in a competitive event at Worcester. Looks the most likely beneficiary if his main rival has another mishap.

4/11

Dual Grade One-winning novice hurdler whose chasing career was aborted after a series of races where mistakes proved costly. His hurdling mark puts him on a different level to his rivals and these fences should be more forgiving.

711-0OR:
200/1

Failed to complete in both starts in point-to-points and a similar story over hurdles last time when 250/1. Out of his depth here.

810-7OR: 86C
66/1

Improved on recent efforts when stepped up to this trip over hurdles a month ago. Official hurdle rating of 86 sets her a mammoth task on chase debut.

710-7OR:
33/1

Showed some ability in point-to-points and in mixed Irish bumper company for her previous trainer. Highly tried on chase debut.

610-7OR:
33/1

14-race maiden rated 84 over hurdles. Untested at this trip and over fences so has much to prove in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Beat That (4/11), Exxaro (9/4), Ruby Russet (33/1), Questionation (33/1), Dry Ol'party (66/1), Mr Pippin (200/1)

Verdict

Nicky Henderson has not given up hope that BEAT THAT can make his mark over fences and aims him low as he bids to get his career back on track following a disappointing 2017-18 season. Exxaro is the obvious one to take advantage should the selection once again fail to adapt to these obstacles.
  1. Beat That
  2. Exxaro
  3. Dry Ol'party
