911-12OR: 119CD
7/2

Lightly-raced in 2018, and his moderate run at Cartmel (3m1f+) can probably be excused; has won over fences here, so the combination of a reduced mark and trip on quick ground at a sharp track should make him far more competitive.

25/1

Placed off a 2lb higher mark at Ayr in April (3m, good), but has done the vast majority of his winning on softer ground; a recent run at Cheltenham (100/1) should bring him forward, but will it be enough?

9/1

Left Tom Lacey for £6,000 in September after a solid run of form during the summer months; disappointing on stable debut (Uttoxeter), but more like it at Kelso latest (3m2f, good) when an always handy 3¾L second to Chanceiton.

5/6

Came up well short on his second start over fences at a rain-lashed Hexham (3m, soft) last month, and reverts to hurdling seeking to break the maiden tag; 4lb higher than when finishing second on his last hurdles start (had wind surgery since).

5/1

Five-race hurdles maiden (two-time Kelso bumper winner in late 2016); has failed to see out her races over hurdles in 2018, but is easing in the weights as a result (down 8lb) and has previous Musselburgh experience.

710-4OR: 97
28/1

Most likely would've finished behind today's rival David John, but for unseating his rider at the final flight at Kelso (3m2f, good), and remains a maiden after ten starts; mark slowly easing, so could win a small race in time.

Betting

Forecast

Born For War (5/6), Island Heights (7/2), Tokaramore (5/1), David John (9/1), Letemgo (25/1), Solway Lark (28/1)

Verdict

A small field, but this looks to be a fairly tight and trappy race. Wind surgery could potentially see Born For War in a much better light, and he certainly deserves another chance on quicker ground after being bogged down (over fences) at a rain-lashed Hexham. However, he's unlikely to represent much value at his projected odds, so a chance is taken on the top-weight ISLAND HEIGHTS in the hope that he can get his career back on track from a competitive handicap mark.
