16/1

Has some useful form to his name in the past over hurdles and fences but has rather lost his way of late. Incredibly well handicapped if he did come back to life for his new yard; only cost £5,000 from Joseph O'Brien.

It remains to be seen if a wind op reverses his recent form which has been very modest to say the least although he has slipped below his last winning mark. Hard to fashion a case for him based on his recent form.

10/3

Lightly-raced sort ridden by a 10lb claimer who has made a very good impression of late. Won a Perth novice hurdle in the summer but found life tough under a penalty after that and handed a fairly stiff handicap mark.

10/3

Has taken a major step forward with his form since being switched to handicaps winning on his debut in that sphere and then following up under a penalty over C&D. Still looks unexposed with a 6lb rise unlikely to stop his hat-trick bid.

Yet to win away from Hexham (all his four career wins there) and added to his winning record there in June off a mark of 107. His form since has been rather up-and-down but his run over 2m here last time indicates he could grab a place.

A bumper and hurdles winner in France he's shown very little since in two starts for his current yard since coming to Britain. May need more time to acclimatise and not expected to be a threat in this.

Took a bumper at this venue last summer on his debut but has yet to really show as much progress as expected over hurdles. Wind surgery may have improved his chances (ran with credit last time) but needs to build on that; raised 3lb for a recent 2nd.

8/1

A course winner three times (twice over C&D) he was the winner of this contest last year off the same mark. All his runs this year have been below-par but he is down to his last winning mark; worth noting a market move.

Suited by the test of stamina that he was given when winning at Perth in September 2016 off a 1lb lower mark. Very lightly-raced since (just three runs) and now hooded for her return from another long break; others appeal more.

Betting

Forecast

Mighty Thunder (5/2), Court Dreaming (10/3), One Night In Milan (10/3), Benny's Secret (8/1), Viserion (8/1), Grand Enterprise (10/1), Desert Island Dusk (12/1), King Leon (16/1), This Thyne Jude (33/1), Ex S'elance (66/1)

Verdict

The winner of this last year Benny’s Secret is well treated and back on his last winning mark if he’s been rejuvenated by a break with Court Dreaming another to note if his handicap mark isn’t beyond him although he looks to have been lumbered with a stiff mark. Mighty Thunder has given the impression that he’s capable of better and a recent wind op could well have improved his prospects but he does need to build on his run last time. Hat-trick seeking ONE NIGHT IN MILAN who is already a C&D winner only won narrowly last time but that race came very quickly after his initial win and there may well be better to come. Desert Island Dusk looks one for a place at his best.
  1. One Night In Milan
