- Amateur Jockeys' Association Amateur Riders' Handicap Hurdle (Class 4)
- 2m 5f 55y, Good (Good to Soft in places)
- 14 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Has some top-class form in Ireland and contested the Grand Annual at Cheltenham last year. Three year's without a win and reverts to hurdling having disappointed over fences in the spring.
October proved a fruitful month and good rider employed here. Suited by conditions but revised mark will make this tough.
Two runs back from a layoff show he is not as good as he was in the spring. Very poor latest and hard to fancy on that showing.
Has completed a double over fences and comes here in search of good ground. Scored over hurdles a year ago off a 12lb higher mark and represents a stable who do well here.
Triple point-to-point winner who has jumped well to make all here and at Bangor. Will be more severely tested in this company but mark looks manageable.
Looked in need of the run on return and represents a leading rider/trainer combination. Best form has come on softer ground.
Went up 6lb for chasing home the progressive Wells De Lune at Cartmel when well clear of the third. Has won for this rider in Jersey since, but an interim Newton Abbot defeat off this mark suggests he has work to do.
Very easy winner at Wincanton in March (heavy ground) but didn't repeat that effort in two subsequent starts, highlighting her inconsistency. Bit to prove again here.
Form has a patchy look about it and he has failed to add to an 82L debut victory for this yard. Has been off five months and rider lacks experience.
Well backed on last month's reappearance when going down narrowly. Will be suited by the longer trip here and top amateur employed.
Scored at Newbury in January 2017 but has struggled to replicate the form since. Will come on for last month's reappearance but of limited appeal at present.
Has a 2-5 record here and down to last winning mark. On the negative side her trainer has gone 142 days without a winner.
Huntingdon winner looked beaten when coming down at Fakenham over fences in June. Off since and reverts to hurdles for a stable on the cold list.
Teenager who lost his way last term and faces a stiff task from 20lb out of the weights and with stable 210 days without a winner.
