611-8OR: 132
6/1

Enjoyed a productive 2017/18 season over hurdles, winning three times (2m1f to 2m4f), with best form in the mud. Has point-to-point experience in Ireland, so every chance he will make a chaser.

Won three times over timber at Sedgefield last season, making all each time. Failed to match hurdles form when tried over fences in France as a juvenile, but may yet do better in this discipline.

From family of Peddlers Cross, and won two hurdles and a jumpers' bumper last season. Still early days with him, and should be open to further progress assuming he takes to chasing.

Refused to race at Musselburgh in December, but no issues when placed on both starts since, and has a point-to-point background and physique which suggests he'll do well in this sphere.

All runs for current yard have come on testing ground, winning a bumper and a novice hurdle at Ffos Las. Bred for fences, and yard in form, but slight concern about quicker ground.

Three wins last season included a handicap hurdle here in the mud, but questions to answer after failing to complete on last two starts in the spring.

Bettered form of chase debut when second to Wolf Sword over 2m4f here in April 2017, but not seen since, and facing plenty of unexposed rivals on return to action.

Can go well fresh, scoring on last season's return over hurdles at Uttoxeter. Excuses subsequently (raced without off-fore shoe on latest start), and yard tends to excel with chasers. Market useful.

Still a maiden, and while he ran respectably on both hurdle starts after wind surgery in the spring, he doesn't look well treated on those efforts now switching to fences.

80/1

Maiden who has been runner-up twice over timber, but well held when falling at the last on handicap debut last time, and appears to face a very stiff task now taking on larger obstacles.

Forecast

Du Soleil (5/2), Cool Mix (4/1), Fin And Game (9/2), Luckofthedraw (5/1), Cave Top (6/1), Blottos (8/1), Some Reign (10/1), Mister Kit (16/1), Tayzar (25/1), Bulkov (25/1), The Phantom (80/1)

Verdict

Lots of these have the scope to do well over fences, and it's a race which should throw up plenty of winners. A chance is taken on SOME REIGN, whose refusal to race at Musselburgh last year looks a blip, and he appeals as the type to excel in his new discipline. Fin And Game, representing last year's winning stable, Du Soleil and Coolmix are others to consider.
