Skintb,t8
1212-2OR: 101D
6/1

Veteran; back from a five-month break seeking a hat-trick over 2m2f at Fontwell last week, but found Winner Massagot in a completely different parish; possibly needed that race, but wouldn't want to be tapped for toe at this track (on quick ground).

911-12OR: 97
12/1

Hasn't looked the sharpest over fences (2m-3m1f) throughout the summer months (0-6 under rules), and doesn't look to be capable of profiting from a falling mark anytime soon.

611-12OR: 97
50/1

Untested outside of novice/maiden company over hurdles, so tough to gauge exactly how much ability he may (or may not) possess; always in rear on chasing debut (novices) when pulled up at Southwell (2m, good) last month.

911-9OR: 94
10/1

Has shown some reasonable form at times over hurdles (2m4f winner), but had been in the doldrums until a better effort latest (others disappointing); didn't appear to be at all suited by fences when tackling them previously for other trainers (0-4).

911-7OR: 92
3/1

22-race hurdles maiden; made a fairly modest start to life over fences at Downpatrick (2m3f, beginners chase) last month, and whilst this is slightly easier, the shorter trip probably isn't ideal.

1011-3OR: 88D
16/1

Modest record over fences (1-27), but must enter the equation on his ¾L second to Roman Numeral at Southwell (2m, good) in June; poor latest; first ever Hexham runner for this trainer.

11/2

Left Jeremy Scott for £12,000 in June 2018; remains a maiden under all codes (0-9 over fences), and readily outpaced as the tempo quickened on stable debut at Cartmel (2m5f) last month.

1110-8OR: 79CD
4/1

1-34 career, but this locally-trained veteran is commonly at his sharpest at Hexham; 2lb higher than when winning over C&D in June (good), and must figure high on the short-list with conditions seemingly ideal in a weak race.

Falcost,v130
610-1OR: 72
13/2

14-race maiden who is fitted with a first-time visor (accompanies the tongue-tie); difficult to enthuse over on all known form, but did make the frame over C&D in a novices chase in June (beaten almost 25L).

Betting

Forecast

Ardview Boy (3/1), Reverse The Charge (4/1), Two Hoots (11/2), Skint (6/1), Falcos (13/2), The Banastoir (10/1), Cool Valley (12/1), Holeinthewall Bar (16/1), Super Charge (50/1)

Verdict

A race which lacks quality. Skint was found short of pace on his reappearance at Fontwell last week, and whilst entitled to come on for that run isn't overly enticing at the age of 12. Super Charge is untested in handicap company, but hasn't achieved anything of note so far and is for a watching brief only, whilst The Banastoir makes his maiden chasing start for Lucinda Russell having looked to be distinctly ill-at-ease for other trainers over larger obstacles in the past. Therefore, the safest option is the Hexham regular REVERSE THE CHARGE; he carries a lightweight and at present appears to have conditions in his favour (quick).
  1. Reverse The Charge
  2. The Banastoir
  3. Holeinthewall Bar
