711-4OR: D
200/1

Having won off a lowly mark at Bangor in April he's found it mainly tough going since off increased mark over hurdles, including here last month over 2m7f. First chase start this afternoon.

Tends to go well fresh, as shown with hurdles win at Warwick over 2m3f in May. Faller over hurdles last month at Newton Abbot when right in contention at the last. Can't be ruled out on best of three previous chase efforts.

11/2

Not disgraced on chase debut at Southwell where he was beaten 1¾L into third of six. This looks tougher and unproven beyond 2m so far, although open to improvement if he stays.

611-4OR:
1/2

Former Triumph Hurdle fifth has had his problems since. In the right hands to rekindle his enthusiasm and blinkered for first time he was an easy winner at Ludlow in May over timber and solid third since at Galway Festival. Chase bow, player.

611-4OR:
100/1

Poor point-to-pointer who showed some ability before falling at the last in a novice chase over C&D in May, having gone off at 200/1. Poor last month over hurdles here, having undergone wind surgery, and plenty improvement needed seemingly.

910-11OR: D
66/1

Hurdles winner over 2m5f at Ludlow in May, rather lost his way since however and needs a big turnaround on last month's effort here now jumping fences for the first time.

410-6OR:
150/1

Modest performer so far in maiden/novice hurdles, doesn't make significant appeal going over fences for the first time on evidence to date.

Betting

Forecast

Leoncavallo (1/2), Cultivator (10/3), Flashing Glance (11/2), Rumor (50/1), Ayla's Emperor (66/1), One More Bid (100/1), Blackjacktennessee (150/1), Centreofexcellence (200/1)

Verdict

Dr Richard Newland has got LEONCAVALLO back on track over timber and, following an excellent effort at Galway last time, he can make his mark at the first time of asking over these larger obstacles. Cultivator has shown enough so far to suggest there are races to be won with him while Centreofexcellence and Flashing Glance – if he says – can get involved for the minors.
