4/1

Proved even better as a chaser last year until mistakes halted her progress. Lay winded for a while on last outing and likely a clear round for a confidence boost is the main aim here with anything else a bonus. Goes well when fresh.

Without a win in 28 months. Trip is fine but he would be of more interest with a recent run and if conditions were more testing.

All out to beat a pair of 120-rated rivals at Haydock before suffering an overreach when disappointing there next time. Hardly thrown in on handicap debut, but he has obvious potential and the race lacks depth.

Made all at a sedate pace to score at Southwell last season. Made favourite for stable bow last month but, not for the first time, showed some wayward traits.

Former Vincent Halley inmate in Ireland where he was 1-11. Never got to grips with chasing last season and starts his career for new handler on a workable mark for when conditions turn softer.

More letters than numbers in his recent form, and the fact he has had a wind op isn't enough to overlook that fact.

Betting

Forecast

Boreham Bill (5/2), Coologue (10/3), Mia's Storm (4/1), Carrigmoorna Matt (9/2), La Fille Francaise (5/1), Ravensdale (7/1), Kaki De La Pree (8/1)

Verdict

Boreham Bill is the only runner for whom fitness is not an issue, but he does not look one to rely on and a chance is taken on RAVENSDALE. The lightly raced gelding represents leading connections and, although the handicapper has taken no chances, he looks a nice prospect and he came to hand early last year. Mia's Storm developed into a top-class novice chaser last season before taking heavy falls on her last two starts. Alan King's mare has a good record when fresh although it is likely she has other targets in mind after this.
  1. Ravensdale
