711-8OR: 132BF
10/11

Came back off a break to run well at Perth latest start, tried to make all but worn down late by an improving type. Yard going well and with no other pacemaker in the race, every chance of going one better under suitable conditions.

10/3

Has refound some form lately, fourth to the classy Shantou Village at Worcester followed up by an even better effort at Newton Abbot. Up 5lb for that narrow defeat and if tidying jumping up at key moments, holds chances in a tricky contest.

11/2

Point-to-point winner back in 2016 (beat a useful sort) and connections wasting little time getting him over fences. Twice an easy winner over hurdles this summer and this step up in trip should suit on chase debut. Every chance today.

811-2OR: 126
8/1

Twice a winner over fences in the spring, jumping well and finding plenty for pressure, and far from disgraced in a good handicap at Uttoxeter when last seen. Should have more to offer, although this quicker ground a slight unknown.

810-8OR: 118
16/1

Yet to win for this yard although has gone close a couple of times, trip and likely ground should suit but not really bred for fences and handicapper looks to have him about right. Needs improvement and others make more appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Cresswell Legend (10/11), Scoop The Pot (10/3), Drovers Lane (11/2), Leith Hill Lad (8/1), Travertine (16/1)

Verdict

CRESSWELL LEGEND almost made it home at Perth but just found the unexposed Cubomania too good. There's every chance he'll be allowed his own way up front and if that's the case, he could be hard to catch. Scoop The Pot will try and throw down a late challenge, and looks the main danger. With Leith Hill Lad possibly wanting a bit more rain than has fallen, Drovers Lane might be the one for the trifecta.
