Without a win in more than three years and has not been the same horse since moving from Gary Moore's yard.

Another drop in the weights gets this former 151-rated chaser into a class 5 for the first time. Ran well until finding 3m too far on last run and cannot be discounted in a race as weak as this.

11/2

Winner here over 3m2f who was in the process of running a big race last time until a mistake at the third last. A triple point-to-point winner, he may have more to offer on just his sixth start over fences.

In good form in point-to-point company in the spring winning twice in that sphere and then beat better company than this over C&D last time. Just 5lb higher here and the obvious one to beat.

4/1

Wears a hood but finds plenty under pressure and has scored here and at Uttoxeter this summer. No match for a surprise winner once collared on Cartmel's long run-in but remains vulnerable off his current mark.

12/1

Yet to win a race but does have the ability to go close when in the right frame of mind (has been placed on 2 of his 3 starts over fences). Likely to be suited by going back up in trip and holds fair place claims once more.

11/4

Beat a good field at Chaddesley Corbett over Christmas but has gone of too quickly on his last two starts under rules. Sent off a short price favourite on stable debut when mistakes proved costly and down in class this time.

Scored in first-time blinkers two years ago but has drawn a blank since. Possible cheekpieces could have a similar positive effect but the improvement needs to be dramatic.

Front-runner who tends to sulk if he doesn't get his own way in the lead. Has run three moderate races since returning from a break and faces competition up front.

Has 30L to find with Top Chief on running here last month and a 7lb pull should not be enough.

Winless since March 2016 and has come 41lb down the handicap since then. Clearly not the force of old but wasn't disgraced last time.

Maiden over hurdles who trailed in last of four finishers here two weeks ago. Faces a stiff task from out of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Bleu Et Or (11/4), Eric The Third (4/1), Top Chief (5/1), Bogoss Du Perret (11/2), Turban (10/1), Torhousemuir (12/1), Bermeo (14/1), Whos De Baby (16/1), Eastern Lady (16/1), Irish Thistle (20/1), Gun Shy (20/1), Civitesses (50/1)

Verdict

Turban is not easy to win with these days but has place claims in this company off his current mark. Eric The Third in contrast looks fully weighted but should still give his usual honest account. Bleu Et Or has strong claims if settling better and putting in an improved display of jumping and so TOP CHIEF looks a more suitable candidate. The Tizzard runner scored well here last time and he would have been more convincing but for losing momentum at the last.
