Beaten just ¾L in a similar C&D maiden in October and has broadly run to a similar level of form since without necessarily progressing; holds a better chance than some, but place prospects only.

Betting

Forecast

Windsor Avenue (2/7), Sheriff Garrett (9/2), Warendorf (14/1), Cloghouge Boy (16/1), Western Aussie (22/1), Rajapur (40/1), Clondaw Fixer (50/1)

Verdict

With respect to the other six runners, this rates as a golden opportunity for the well regarded WINDSOR AVENUE to strike at the second time of asking over hurdles. He travelled well for the majority of the race at Carlisle last month when seeing off all bar the promising Al Dancer (Nigel Twiston-Davies), and granted a clear round of hurdling, he looks to be a penalty kick in the opener.
