911-12OR: 108D
3/1

Has won four of her nine starts since joining current yard, although a little lucky to score at Sedgefield last time when leader fell at final fence. Fairly treated on balance, though, and should go close.

811-12OR: 108BFD
9/2

Immediately revived upon joining current yard, winning over hurdles at Newton Abbot and on chase debut at Uttoxeter. Found out by rise in the weights at Market Rasen (hurdles) last time, but might have scope for further improvement in this sphere.

511-9OR: 105D
5/1

Front-runner who has shown consistent form without progressing over hurdles, but had previously won both starts in Irish point-to-points, so can be expected to make a fair fist of things now changing disciplines.

611-2OR: 98CD
11/2

Initially struggled after bumper success for Gordon Elliott, but has found his level over fences, and jumped soundly when beating Quick Brew over C&D last time. 5lb rise is fair, and one to consider.

711-1OR: 97
10/1

Similar form on completed starts over fences, but looked to find his stamina stretched when only third to Arizona Bound over C&D last time, and he's opposable on that basis despite a swing in the weights.

910-5OR: 87D
5/1

Has won three times between the flags, and while he's not been seen since June 2017 when with David Fitch-Peyton, he has since been bought by shrewd connections for £12,000, and is sure to be ready for action despite his lay-off.

810-3OR: 85
22/1

Runner-up over hurdles here (3m) on penultimate start, but couldn't repeat that next time, and debatable whether she can find any improvement now switched to fences given she's already raced 30 times.

710-2OR: 84D
14/1

Just one win from 17 starts under Rules, and well-beaten fifth on sole outing over fences, but she has also won a point-to-point before joining current yard, so may well do better in this sphere.

Betting

Forecast

Running In Heels (3/1), Ange Des Malberaux (9/2), Northern Beau (5/1), Forrardon Xmoor (5/1), Arizona Bound (11/2), Dakota Grey (10/1), Lady London (14/1), Louloumills (22/1)

Verdict

RUNNING IN HEELS was fortunate to collect at Sedgefield last time, but is still a solid yardstick at this level, and is preferred to Ange de Malberaux, who has already benefited from the Dan Skelton bounce. Forrardon Xmoor starts off for Gordon Elliott after a lengthy layoff, but won't want for fitness, and could be well treated.
