- bet365 Charlie Hall Meeting 2nd & 3rd November Handicap Hurdle (Class 3)
- 3m 26y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 7 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Has been in good form over fences this summer and returns to this sphere just 1lb higher than his last winning handicap mark. Well suited to quick ground and has race fitness on his side over several of these.
Has become something of a Uttoxeter specialist and arrives here on the back of an impressive victory there last month. Has been hit hard for that success and will need to improve again to defy this sort of handicap mark. Up in trip.
Course winner who was impressive when bolting up at Cartmel in the summer. Disappointed from his revised mark at Perth last time though and has a bit to prove now. May have preferred softer ground.
Arrives bidding for a belated hat-trick after wins at Cheltenham and Haydock towards the end of last season. Only 5lb higher for the latest success and quite possible there's more to come this season. Interesting front-runner.
Has been in good form on the Flat this season and she was a course winner over hurdles last season. Signs the handicapper had caught up with her towards the end of the last NH season and needs to prove she stays this far.
Looked like an exciting prospect when winning two of his first four hurdles starts but completely lost his way last season. Has a bit to prove now on debut for new yard but quite possibly on a lenient mark if he returns to form.
Both career wins have come over C&D, including this race last year. Seemingly saves his best for this course and he both handles these conditions, and finds himself on a workable mark.
