8/1

Handicap mark has taken a hit since his last victory. Never going at any stage on latest start over hurdles but a two month break and the booking of Richard Johnson (5-17 for stable) are positives.

Inconsistent nowadays and a poor third of five on his latest start. Scored on his only visit here and underfoot conditions are to his liking on return to chasing.

Beat Black Corton at Worcester last year but a well-beaten eighth in this subsequently. Looked more like his old self when hurdling last month and cheekpieces fitted for return to fences. Trainer 31-89 with chasers here since 1988.

Admirable veteran has not raced off a mark as low as this since June 2014 and highly regarded rider claims a further 10lb. Goes well fresh and happy to make the running, but needs to bounce back from two poor performances.

Goes well fresh and took his record when returning from a summer break to 4-5 when shouldering 12st to victory at Perth last month. Beaten almost 20L in this 12 months ago when conditions were similar to those forecast today.

Undoubtedly well-handicapped on last year's form but he has lost his way recently. The distance last time was inadequate but best watched until showing more.

Both wins have come at Taunton and there are similarities between that track and this. Relatively inexperienced over fences but his second to Play The Ace last term reads well and his stable are in form.

Betting

Forecast

Forever Field (11/4), Beau Du Brizais (3/1), Belmount (5/1), Tempestatefloresco (6/1), Creevytennant (7/1), Cut The Corner (8/1), Roman Flight (17/2)

Verdict

Cut The Corner, Forever Field and Belmount were all well beaten in this corresponding race 12 months ago, however this may be a less competitive renewal. Roman Flight is well-handicapped if the market suggests a return to his best seems likely, but it may pay to side with BEAU DU BRIZAIS on this occasion. His second to Play The Ace at Stratford is strong form and he had the subsequent Scottish National winner behind when second at Taunton on his next start. His stable are in good form currently and his latest run should have put him right for this.
