5/6

Suited by the quick ground and sound gallop when gaining a first chase win at Market Rasen in June. Stable have a 14-53 record here with chasers since 2014 so every chance he can add to that tally with conditions forecast to be favourable.

2016 hurdles winner at Cork over 2m has not added to that since. Promise of seconds in beginners chases at Tramore and Wexford have been eclipsed by mediocre efforts since.

Betting

Forecast

Sumkindofking (5/6), Gustave Mahler (7/4), Fair Exchange (17/2), Cotton Jenny (9/1)

Verdict

This should rest between the two topweights given their two rivals have questions to answer. Sumkindofking represents connections who have to be feared with chasers around here and underfoot conditions are forecast to be perfect. On the downside this may prove tactical and it is hard to argue he is well-handicapped. GUSTAVE MAHLER has been unlucky to bump into some smart sorts since switching codes, but he is a reliable sort who battles under pressure and the switch to handicapping gives him his first chance to meet rivals on equal terms.
  1. Gustave Mahler
  2. Sumkindofking
