511-12OR: 128BF
4/1

Dual winner in 2017 including in a good ground maiden hurdle over 2m4f at Uttoxeter in September of that year. Well beaten on chase debut last month and worth a check in the market back over hurdles.

7/2

Returned to winning ways with victory over an extended 2m at Bangor (good) last time out. Raised 6lb for that victory and wears blinkers for the first time for a yard with a 50% strike-rate (5/10) in recent weeks.

4/1

Dual hurdles winner earlier this year and ran well when beaten a neck over an extended 2m1f at Fontwell (good) earlier this month. Useful conditional again in the saddle and can go well despite a 2lb rise in the weights.

Bidding to complete a hat-trick when pulling up over 2m3f at Fontwell (soft) back in March. Absent since and worth a check in the market on seasonal debut.

6/1

Placed on three of his four starts since winning over 2m at Worcester (good-to-firm) in July. Beaten ½L by Lovato over an extended 2m at Bangor (good) last time out and is capable of running well in this contest.

510-13OR: 115D
9/2

Decent fourth in a good-to-soft ground handicap hurdle over 2m4f here in April. Victorious on the Flat since and market support would be interesting on his return to jumping.

12/1

Beaten 13L when finishing runner-up in a 2m5f handicap chase at Newton Abbot (good) in May. Held in two hurdles since and others hold stronger claims on his return from a break.

510-8OR: 110CD
12/1

Recorded a second hurdles victory when winning over this C&D on good going earlier this month. Raised 5lb for that victory and is one for the shortlist receiving weight from all of her rivals in this event.

Betting

Forecast

Lovato (7/2), Equus Amadeus (4/1), Cubswin (4/1), Volpone Jelois (9/2), Red Hot Chilly (6/1), Eragon De Chanay (13/2), Mick Thonic (12/1), Shufoog (12/1), Cabernet D'Alene (16/1)

Verdict

LOVATO can follow-up his Bangor victory earlier this month by taking this handicap hurdle. The application of blinkers can see him get the better of seasonal debutant Eragon De Chanay while third place can go to Cubswin who finished runner-up at Fontwell on her most recent start.
  1. Lovato
  2. Eragon De Chanay
  3. Cubswin
