911-12OR: 149D
16/1

Most of his best form at around 2m4f although won over 3m as a novice. Headed late on in 3m Skybet at Doncaster last season before not staying in the Grand National. Handicap not impossible especially over this sort of trip so respected.

4/1

Lightly raced (eight starts) but showed ability when beating smart Mister Whitaker (won all 3 subsequent including Cheltenham Festival) over 2m4½f last season at Kempton. Pulled-up next as if something amiss but looks very fairly treated now.

711-6OR: 143D
16/1

Won twice last season at Kempton (2m4½f) and Wetherby (2m3½f) before coming up well short at Cheltenham and Ayr. Handicap eases back a little but probably remains high enough for a contest such as this.

911-2OR: 139D
6/1

Four starts last season all resulted in third placed finishes, the latest at the Cheltenham Festival. Handicap remains one he can be competitive from but below par in only previous run on good ground so that the concern.

10/3

Won first two starts last season at Chepstow and Stratford but struggled a little subsequently. Shade disappointing return fourth at Market Rasen but now 1lb lower than last win and given his relative youth he should be capable of that level again.

Won first two chase starts and first past the post in third although subsequently disqualified and placed second. Found out here next in Grade One but still open to more improvement as he now steps up in trip from 2m.

Made the frame in seven of his eight starts last season without success having missed all of the previous season. Seconds in last three starts not done him any favours and starts out here 3lb higher than latest.

25/1

3m1f win here last term one of three over 3m plus. Outclassed in last start last season here in Grade One and two very disappointing runs to start this season make him now hard to fancy.

14/1

Dual French winner over fences claimed out of Olly Murphy's stable when gaining second chase win for that yard latest at Ffos Las over 2m3½f. Steps up markedly in class here but still unexposed and four from five over fences.

12/1

Won first start over fences last season although only two of three finished. Subsequently pulled up at Kempton, fifth at Cheltenham and last (of 17) at Uttoxeter. Plenty of question marks here.

10/1

C&D win in May (good) following on from a win at Ayr was very impressive. Fourth next although possible 3m more than 8lb rise the reason for that step back. Up in class here but liking for course and ground plus progressive profile give her claims.

Betting

Forecast

Romain De Senam (10/3), Hell's Kitchen (4/1), War Sound (11/2), King's Odyssey (6/1), Martiloo (10/1), Some Invitation (12/1), Candy Burg (14/1), Warriors Tale (16/1), Mercian Prince (16/1), Kauto Riko (20/1), Bouvreuil (20/1), Captain Chaos (25/1)

Verdict

HELL'S KITCHEN's victory over Mister Whitaker last season could hardly have worked out better and although he under-performed next he starts this season a potentially very well handicapped horse so makes the most appeal here. Paul Nicholls runs two here and both have claims with the currently well handicapped Romain De Senam particularly dangerous off this mark. Improving mare Martiloo takes a step up in class but could be capable of overcoming it with conditions ideal.
