711-12OR: 124
5/2

Reverts to hurdling from a career high mark after winning over fences at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft) in February; 7lb higher than when finishing 1¾L second to Dubai Angel at Newcastle (2m6f, heavy) in March 2017.

8/1

Gamely fended off Behindthelines (neck) when winning a 2m4f maiden hurdle (heavy) here in March, and ended the season a runner-up on virtually unraceable ground at Newcastle, just 1¼L behind Eastview Boy; 3lb higher for first attempt at 3m.

511-11OR: 123
5/2

Difficult to draw too many positives from his two starts in early 2018 (heavy), and wouldn't be the most obviously well-handicapped. However, is respected (given his connections) in a slightly weaker northern contest.

7/2

Aided by cheekpieces when scoring by 12L over fences here in June (good), and most certainly appreciates the delights of the rural Northumberland countryside (121411); has raced only once over hurdles since June 2016.

Mudlark; given a positive ride by this promising jockey in optimum conditions at Newcastle in April (3m heavy); remains 10lb higher; ran reasonably well when finishing almost 22L fourth of eight to Justatenner on seasonal reappearance (3m Perth).

Betting

Forecast

The Hollow Ginge (5/2), Sharp Response (5/2), Rivabodiva (10/3), Tickenwolf (7/2), Captain Mowbray (8/1), Arctic Vodka (8/1), David John (14/1)

Verdict

No standout contender, so a very difficult race to solve. A sustained spell of rain prior to racing would certainly suit the mare Rivabodiva who ploughed her way through the sodden Newcastle turf in April when the beneficiary of a tactically astute ride by Thomas Willmott. Tickenwolf commonly thrives at Hexham (121411), but hasn't raced over hurdles for well over two years now, whilst the topweight Sharp Response competes from a career high mark. Therefore, we'll chance the improving ARCTIC VODKA, and simply hope that his stamina reserves last out on his first ever start over 3m.
