Not been with this yard long but tailed off on all starts over hurdles so far. Makes handicap debut today which should make life a little easier but hard to give weight away all round here.

Has taken a step forward the last twice and stayed on well having made all the running at Wincanton nine days ago. That was just a four-runner affair and up 7lb here which makes life a little tougher.

Had three starts for Gordon Elliot and tailed off on all three occasions. Starts life for new yard today on the back of a summer break and market check required.

Placed off a 3lb higher mark over hurdles at Market Rasen (good) in May. Well held since including over fences last time and needs to return to very best of his form to be involved here.

Placed in a bumper and a couple of hurdle races so far. Let down by some sloppy jumping on handicap debut at Worcester in July and quickly dropped 3lb. Looks on a fair mark on best efforts though and could be dangerous if jumping a little better.

Tailed off in first two starts in handicaps earlier in the year. Returns from a summer break now and the visor goes on first time. Possible improver now and market check is essential.

Hasn't been able to improve on his novice form since starting off in handicaps over obstacles, and though he's slowly working down the weights he needs to show more before being of interest.

Showed improved form on first start in handicaps when a well held second at Hereford three weeks ago. Races off the same mark here and should be involved once more if able to back that effort up here.

Best effort over hurdles to date over this C&D last time when a well-held third. Cheekpieces now go on for handicap debut and has potential to improve in this sphere.

Winner at Market Rasen in June but has disappointed several times since including when sent off favourite at Worcester last time when racing awkwardly late on. Down 2lb here but that last run was pretty off-putting.

Winning for the second time when getting up under a very strong ride at Market Rasen last time. Raised 6lb for that win which asks another question but he is at least in good form and should go well again.

Lightly raced over the last couple of years and has been badly out of touch. Well held on return at Newton Abbot last month and is down another 4lb. Starting to look dangerously well handicapped and it would be no surprise if showing more now.

Into the veteran stage now but recorded a good win at Stratford off 7lb lower in August. Not so good next time but ran a cracker here again last time and remains in good form.

Returned to form with a win in a seller two starts back but found handicap company a bit too hot again last time. Didn't run badly but needs to do more to be involved in the finish.

Drop in trip did the trick when coming through to win nicely at Plumpton (2m4½f) last time. Only nudged up 4lb for that and down in trip again here. Major player if backing that win up.

Beaten in six bumpers for Gordon Elliott and hasn't shown much over hurdles since joining current yard in December. Still in there pitching when falling at Worcester in the summer and returns from a four-month absence.

Well-held when falling on both recent starts. Races from out the weights here and up against it in a very competitive race.

Betting

Forecast

Double Court (7/2), Cahill (6/1), Big Picture (6/1), All Hands On Deck (8/1), Scorpion Star (9/1), Norse Light (10/1), Misty Bloom (14/1), Alltimegold (14/1), Flighty Filia (16/1), Ladies Dancing (18/1), Kilcaragh Boy (20/1), Mount Vesuvius (20/1), Definite Winner (20/1), Getadollar (25/1), No No Cardinal (25/1), Silver Quay (40/1), This Lovely Lady (50/1), Macca's Stowaway (66/1)

Verdict

Double Court won well under a strong ride last time and should play a part here if in a similar mood. ALLHANDSONDECK made an encouraging start in handicaps at Hereford last time and will be a major player if able to build on that now. Any sort of market support for either Alltimegold or Flighty Filia should be taken very seriously as both are lurking on potentially dangerous marks.
