Did well last term winning twice and finishing a close second at Sedgefield in January. Returns from more than six-month break racing off 2lb lower mark than when last in action in March.

Scored at Southwell last December, and at Ludlow in May on her last racecourse appearance. 6lb higher now but has gone well fresh in the past and yard has been in decent form in recent weeks.

In the form of his life and comes here on a four-timer following wins in handicap chases at Perth, Stratford and Newton Abbot. Front-runner who carries 7lb penalty but looks certain to give it another good go for yard with current 27% strike rate..

Raised 5lb after completing his hattrick with a win over C&D a fortnight ago where he showed a willing attitude under today's conditional rider. Should be suited by chasing a strong pace and has a big chance of extending his winning run.

7/2

Won over C&D last October but proved frustrating in nine subsequernt starts and has recently undergone a wind op after stopping quickly at Stratford in August. Worth checking for any market confidence on first run back.

6/1

Probaby at his best with some give underfoot, and won Sandown novice hurdle last term on good to soft. Didn't set the world alight on chasing bow last time and may benefit from more experience over fences.

Betting

Forecast

Nightfly (5/2), Mercian King (7/2), Ontopoftheworld (7/2), King Alfonso (5/1), Cap Du Nord (6/1), Burrenbridge Hotel (16/1)

Verdict

KING ALFONSO can complete a four-timer having impressed with his attitude when scoring over course and distance last time out. It won't be easy though with Ontopoftheworld also looking for a fourth straight victory, while top weight Burrenbridge Hotel and the mare Nightfly are both respected and could prove dangerous in a trappy affair.
