7/4

Good start to his hurdles career with wins here over C&D and at Aintree (both good). Very good effort again last time under double penalty. Should go close.

9/4

Won a Kilbeggan maiden hurdle, followed by a 1m6f Carlisle Flat handicap last month. Has a little to find with the top weight based on official ratings, but open to improvement and should be very competitive.

6/4

Carlisle bumper winner (soft) last year. Has run well in both hurdles, one of them here over 2m. Step up in trip looks positive. Claims.

Placed in hurdles at both Hexham (2m, good) and Perth (2m4f, good) in the summer. Backward step last time and looks up against it here, even if he can bounce back.

Well held in all starts so far, suggesting that it will be a surprise if she proves good enough to have a say here.

Betting

Forecast

Aye Right (6/4), High Jinx (7/4), Falak (9/4), Farocco (50/1), Flying Dismount (50/1), Roberttown Rose (100/1), Karat Of Gold (200/1)

Verdict

A race that should chiefly concern the top three on the racecard and AYE RIGHT gets the vote. Harriet Graham's five-year-old is open to improvement over this longer trip, acts on good ground and receives weight from her principal rivals High Jinx and Falak. The former should again give a good account, while the latter is another potential improver and should also be thereabouts in his cross-code hat-trick bid.
  1. Aye Right
  2. Falak
  3. High Jinx
