9/2

Has been in decent form under both codes this summer. However, she is 9lb higher than when winning at Market Rasen in June and her last hurdles effort at Perth suggested that she will find this tough.

Goes well here and has two C&D wins to his name, the latest in April being from 3lb lower. Bettered that form at Perth in July, but pulled up at Cartmel last time and needs further improvement to win again.

14-race maiden. Has put in some reasonably respectable efforts in defeat, but is not easy to fancy for win purposes.

Not easy to catch right and has done most of his winning at Catterick on softer ground. Back on his last winning mark, but not easy to fancy on recent evidence.

10/3

Ran up a hat-trick last summer, but now on a 14-race losing run. Better effort last time at Perth (2m4f, good), so needs taking more seriously again from the same mark today.

Now a stone lower than his sole success at Huntingdon last year, when with Dan Skelton. Has shown little in recent starts and is impossible to fancy on that evidence.

6/1

3-13 and now 17lb lower than her last win, in January 2017. Would probably want some ease in the ground to be seen to best effect and recent efforts don't put her too high on the list.

610-9OR: 82
9/1

Not badly treated based on her stable debut at Cartmel (2m1f, good to firm) in July (first-time hood), but below that level back there both runs since. Step up in trip could help and she is not written off given that she acts on the ground.

16-race maiden. Better effort last time at Sedgefield (2m5f, good to firm). Drops 2lb but still more needed.

Yet to make the frame from 11 starts. 5lb 'wrong' at the weights and can only watch.

Betting

Forecast

Green Zone (10/3), Mitcd (9/2), Theatre Act (6/1), Sleep In First (7/1), Superefficient (8/1), Rory's Valentine (8/1), Slaney Craiglegacy (17/2), Make It Happen (17/2), Da Dou Ron Ron (9/1), Snowed In (12/1), Sierra Oscar (12/1), Sense Of Urgency (16/1), Cully Mac (66/1)

Verdict

A poor contest with much more doubt than confidence in any of the field and if conditions remain fast then it might be worth chancing DA DOU RON RON. She went to the well plenty of times in bumpers when trained in France and never won. She is also 0-3 in Britain, but she has shown form on quicker ground and this longer trip might just help get her off the mark. Green Zone has the potential to go close now back in better form, while Mitcd, Make It Happen and Rory's Valentine are other more obvious players.
