511-12OR: 110
16/1

Didn't appear to stay the trip (2m7f) on handicap debut at Market Rasen last month; displayed some promise in his earlier placed hurdling starts (albeit, comfortably held); cheekpieces applied over this vastly reduced trip.

911-10OR: 108CD
3/1

Both career wins have come with cut underfoot, and this game one-eyed gelding is continuing to edge up the weights after a solid run of form; no track or trip worries (C&D winner).

611-8OR: 106
16/1

Maiden, and a beaten 6/4f at Sedgefield in May (2m4f novices); shaped as if she needed the race on handicap debut at Cartmel (2m6f) last month; dropped 2lb and back to the minimum trip.

611-7OR: 105D
9/2

Capable from a mark of 100, as demonstrated when scoring at Wetherby in March 2017, and when chasing home the ill-fated (but then in-form) Skywards Reward at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) in April 2018; a shade more to do off this mark of 105.

711-5OR: 103
12/1

Fair performer on Fibresand (1m4f-1m6f) for previous trainer Marjorie Fife, but hasn't shown much over hurdles for quite a while (ex-Dan Skelton); attractively weighted if this trainer is somehow able to halt the steady decline.

511-0OR: 98BFD
5/2

Now 10lb higher than when winning at Perth (2m, good) in July, but has acquitted himself well on similar quick ground since with placed efforts at Sedgefield and Uttoxeter; should be thereabouts.

Rebecca Menzies deserves some credit for the way she's handled this frustrating 9yo; made it 71st time lucky under an excellent ride from this 7lb claimer when winning at Cartmel (2m1f) last month; latest run ignored (came too quick); raised 3lb.

610-9OR: 93WS

11-race maiden who has appeared regressive since leaving the care of Joseph O'Brien; tailed-off over C&D in June and absent since; dropped 4lb.

810-8OR: 92CD
12/1

Dual C&D winner, but is now 10lb higher than when beating Budarri by 5L in June (good); likely to run her race with conditions favourable despite a three-month absence, but should find a couple stronger.

Betting

Forecast

Strong Team (5/2), Wazowski (3/1), Suggestion (9/2), Xpo Universel (8/1), Cherry Princess (12/1), Samtu (12/1), Tickerty Boo (16/1), Jesse Jude (16/1), Mac Cennetig (20/1)

Verdict

No standout contender, but a number of these horses can be expected to run their usual solid races, including the game as a pebble one-eyed Wazowski, and the Hexham proven mare Cherry Princess. Furthermore, Xpo Universal was finally off the mark at Cartmel last month (71st attempt), and isn't totally dismissed from a 3lb higher mark, with a line drawn through his most recent start (race came too soon). However, the advice is to follow the Chris Grant-trained Perth winner STRONG TEAM. Although the handicapper isn't necessarily making life easy, there's every chance that he'll continue to prove competitive until the ground conditions slowly deteriorate.
  1. Strong Team
  2. Wazowski
  3. Cherry Princess
