511-12OR: 122
7/2

Chase debutante who has some useful hurdles form to his name but has rather been out of sorts/laboured in that sphere on his last few starts. Given a break and brought back over off a lenient mark compared to his hurdles one; blinkers removed.

Formerly with the Greatrex yard his move to this handler coincided with his move to a fencing career. Pulled up on debut (breathing problem) but has run well since (tongue-tie both times) and travels well; should appreciate the better ground.

11/4

Irish bumper winner (pulled up only start in point-to-points) who proved a major disappointment on his handicap hurdle debut (first-time cheekpieces). Now quickly switched to fences and brought back in trip minus the headgear; point to prove.

911-7OR: 117D
4/1

One of the most experienced in this field (2-13) who connection appear to have found the right trip for (at last) over shorter than 3m; both wins at 2m5f. Runs off the same mark as last time and will be suited by the drop in trip.

611-2OR: 112
20/1

Dual scorer over hurdles at the end of last year and although he's run well twice subsequently this sort of mark over hurdles at least has looked a little beyond him. Now makes his chase debut off a mark of 112; looks to have a tough enough task.

911-1OR: 111
12/1

Scored on his second start back from wind surgery taking a 2m4f handicap chase at Ffos Las (has raced almost exclusively there since; placed twice). Got closer than he ought to have to the winner last time (up 6lb for that); in the mix all the same.

9/1

Impressed when winning a handicap (4th attempt) over hurdles at Worcester showing improved form and looking suited by the trip (2m4f). Failed to repeat that win and was a little out of his depth on chase debut last time; handicaps suit better.

710-11OR: 107
10/1

Reasonable hurdler when trained in Ireland by Gordon Elliott although his form overall does have a rather inconsistent look. His three starts over fences so far have offered very little; folded up quickly last time; difficult to be confident about.

710-6OR: 102
10/1

Winning hurdler who has flirted with success over fences on a few occasions and ran a very sound race at Uttoxeter in July. Not lived up to that billing in two subsequent starts but not ruled out off bottom weight; won off higher over hurdles.

Betting

Forecast

Stage Summit (11/4), Night Of Sin (7/2), Roll The Dough (4/1), Court Duty (9/1), Samson (10/1), Everyday Everyhour (10/1), Gone Platinum (12/1), Boagrius (14/1), Generous Day (20/1), Seaston Spirit (20/1)

Verdict

The better ground and a fully-fledged rider may be the key to seeing BOAGRIUS off the mark over fences he certainly travels like a horse who will enjoy a test like this. Roll The Dough is rising through the handicap but finally connections appear to have found his optimum trip and he looks to be a danger. Most of the newcomers face a tough task and its Gone Platinum and Court Duty who have race fitness on their side who could compete for the minor placings given their good recent form.
  1. Boagrius
  2. Roll The Dough
  3. Gone Platinum
