10/3

Made a promising start to life over fences when winning an eight runner heat at Southwell. His jumping under pressure has let him down twice since, particularly last time at Perth when he had the race at his mercy before falling at the last.

Put up an impressive performance when last seen winning at Ayr in fine fashion. Others have achieved a bit more but he's an exciting prospect on his first start over fences and not ruled out with the quick ground in his favour.

Achieved a very low official ratings over hurdles - still a maiden after 11 starts - and hard to make a case for on what he's shown to date. Makes his chase debut.

The ground was seemingly too soft for him throughout most of his campaign last season but he ran well in defeat on several occasions. Rates as the type to excel over fences this season and will take a fair amount of beating here.

Betting

Forecast

Lough Derg Spirit (4/9), El Terremoto (10/3), Cool Mix (13/2), Gentleman James (150/1)

Verdict

LOUGH DERG SPIRIT is a fascinating contender on better ground than he experienced throughout most of last year and he gives the impression he will be even better over fences. Cool Mix may be able to get the better of El Terremoto in the battle for minor honours given the latter has to concede a penalty to his rivals.
