711-12OR: 135D
7/2

Won a good quality handicap chase at Kempton last December, but seemed to lose confidence after jumping errors subsequently. Just 1lb higher than winning mark now, and this track should suit, so possible he can bounce back after a break.

Close third in Pertemps Final at Cheltenham Festival for Paul Nicholls, but ran poorly on final start last season, and disappointed back over fences for new stable at Uttoxeter last month.

911-10OR: 133CD
17/2

Still 7lb higher than when winning a C&D handicap chase in the mud in February, but set to go close when unseating on next start, and easy enough to forgive a poor run on final start. Claims if jumping holds up.

3/1

£150,000 purchase after winning sole point-to-point start, and he has shown progressive form under Rules. Won over hurdles at Worcester in June, and shaped well when second on chase bow at Uttoxeter last month. Better to come, and leading claims.

16/1

Veteran who goes well at Sandown, and finished third to Ballydine there (3m, soft) in February. Ended season out of sorts, but that means he starts new campaign from a workable mark.

911-7OR: 130D
12/1

Lightly raced in recent times, and not quite the force of old. Never dangerous when fifth returned to fences at Perth in July, and needs to step up markedly to figure.

711-4OR: 127D
15/2

Triple winner over hurdles for Dianne Sayer, and blinkered when comfortably off the mark over fences, beating Kilbree Kid at Perth (3m, good) in July. New mark is fair, and he has every chance if headgear continues to have a positive effect.

5/1

Not beaten far off 8lb higher mark in 2017 Scottish Grand National, and better than the result in two starts last term after a lengthy absence. Becoming well treated, and not dismissed, for all a stiffer test would suit him better.

711-2OR: 125
12/1

Won heavy-ground handicap chases at Ffos Las and Ayr in February at around 2m5f, but let down by jumping at Kelso on final start. Still unexposed, and claims if he can avoid mistakes.

1310-11OR: 120CD
25/1

Won this race in 2016, and fourth when joint favourite a year ago. Well into the veteran stage now, however, and looks vulnerable to younger legs now.

Betting

Forecast

Sky Pirate (3/1), Tintern Theatre (7/2), Blakemount (5/1), Acdc (7/1), Cooking Fat (15/2), Shanroe Santos (17/2), Looksnowtlikebrian (12/1), Knock House (12/1), Loose Chips (16/1), Carrigdhoun (25/1), Connetable (66/1)

Verdict

Acdc will have every chance if turning out again having won at Wetherby on Wednesday, but with his participation not guaranteed, the vote goes to top-weight TINTERN THEATRE who will find these fences more to his liking than when last seen at Cheltenham in April. Sky Pirate is throughly unexposed, and has obvious claims after a pleasing chase debut at Uttoxeter.
