20/1

Form figures hard to crab and the gelding has done well to pay his way. However, he's been out of action for over two years and it'll take a great training feat for him to cope with top weight after so long on the sidelines.

Struggled after winning a modest handicap at Southwell in February and didn't show much on his return to the action last month. Attractively weighted but still has something to prove.

Very keen to get on with things last time but it didn't stop the gelding forging on to victory. He created the impression there is more to come and looks attractively weighted fort this handicap debut. Has to be of interest.

11/4

Won twice in France for his former yard but has so far been regressive for his incumbent trainer. Should cope with the trip and ground but in danger of becoming frustrating. The betting can guide as to whether he's improved during his summer break.

5/2

Hinted at ability and not unduly pushed when his chance had gone on his return to action last month (had wind surgery during the summer months). Jockey booking catches the eye, so certainly worth a betting check.

25/1

Moderate form in point-to-points was bettered with a win in a mares only hurdle at Exeter back in February. Not so good a handicap last time out but may not have been suited by the trip. The betting can guide as to where the return to 2m will help.

5/1

One of the more experienced hurdlers and seems versatile regarding the trip and ground. Limitations fully exposed though and this looks tough from 6lb above his last winning mark.

810-12OR: 103D
50/1

Dual hurdles winner at Hexham back in the mists of time but limited to just one start for his current yard. And, having made no impression in ordinary company that time, his 100/1 starting price was a fair assessment. Stiff test again here.

710-11OR: 102
20/1

Inconsistent gelding that is 0-5 over hurdles and not been yet noted as one to rely upon in a battle. Others more appealing despite his potentially lenient mark.

Betting

Forecast

World Premier (5/2), Jaboticaba (11/4), Court Royale (9/2), Cougar Kid (5/1), Borak (5/1), Contre Tous (14/1), Furiously Fast (20/1), Dont Be Robin (20/1), Love Lane (25/1), Deep Resolve (50/1)

Verdict

A fairly weak event that can go the way of COURT ROYALE, whose keenness to get on with things may prove to be too much of an irritant for the rest. Connections of World Premier have secured a top jockey for the day, so he merits consideration as a viable alternative, while Borak and Jaboticaba are a couple of other live dangers on the pick of their efforts and complete the shortlist in a moderate finale.
