811-12OR: 147
8/1

Was a warm order to win over fences at a couple of the spring Festivals but came away empty handed. Returned to hurdles last time at Down Royal with a reasonable effort, but will need to be significantly better to win from this mark.

Consistent hurdler who is not ground dependent and again looks to have each-way claims from this mark.

9/2

Goes best on good ground at around 2m4f. Good effort again last time at Worcester, when 2lb lower. More needed, but looks likely to be right in the mix.

910-11OR: 132
12/1

Without a hurdles win for almost two years, but arrives on the back of a Flat success at Chepstow (2m2f, good) last month. Goes on any ground, but this mark, 6lb higher than his last run in Ireland over hurdles, looks stiff enough.

610-8OR: 129
6/4

Arrives in cracking form, having won a Perth maiden hurdle (2m4f) and a Stratford novice event (2m6f, at 1-8) in two of his last three starts, both on good. Looks to have a future and mark looks fair, so he is not dismissed on his handicap debut

11/1

Another who arrives having won two of his last three, by a wide margin at Stratford (2m6f) and then again at Perth (2m4f) last time, when 6lb lower. Still improving and should thereabouts again.

20/1

Scored on good to firm at Cartmel (2m6f) under this pilot in July and might have followed up but for falling at the last back there next time. Has excuses with soft ground last time, but has a little to prove.

610-4OR: 125
9/2

Seeking a ht-trick after back-to-back Cartmel wins on his last two runs. Arrives freshened up again after another 58-day absence. More needed from 8lb higher, but very much respected.

Betting

Forecast

Go Another One (6/4), Forever Field (9/2), Alfie's Choice (9/2), De Plotting Shed (8/1), Good Tradition (11/1), Massini's Trap (12/1), Ahead of The Curve (16/1), Beeno (20/1), Volcanic (20/1)

Verdict

A competitive race in prospect for a decent prize and the suggestion is GOOD TRADITION, who is on an upward curve and should be right in the mix once again. Stablemate Volcanic is not ruled out, but bigger dangers may come from Forever Field, Ahead Of The Curve and Go Another One. Alfie's Choice should also be thereabouts, and Beeno is a solid option for each-way players.
  1. Good Tradition
  2. Forever Field
  3. Go Another One
