Completed a double when winning over an extended 2m1f at Fontwell (good) in August. Closed third there subsequently and another bold show looks likely.

Returned from a short break with victory in a handicap hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton (firm) last time out. Raised 3lb for that success and is one for the shortlist once more.

Placed twice in novice hurdles but struggled upped to 2m7f at Bangor (good) on handicap debut last month. Worth a check in the market dropping in distance.

Placed on each of his last four starts most recently over 2m at Uttoxeter (good) in June. Market support would be notable on his return from a break.

Struggled over 2m1f at Exeter (good-to-firm) last month when returning from a break. More needed if he's to take this contest.

Winner of 14 races but finished well held at Exeter (2m1f, good-to-firm) last month on his return from a break. Well handicapped on his old form but others hold stronger claims.

Betting

Forecast

Borak (9/4), Magical Thomas (3/1), Mr Lando (4/1), Mead Vale (6/1), Catchin Time (7/1), Silver Quay (8/1), Thundering Home (25/1), Cool Macavity (28/1)

Verdict

MAGICAL THOMAS was in great form during the summer and he is taken to register a third victory of 2018 in this handicap hurdle. The selection has the trip and forecast underfoot conditions to suit and he can get the better of Borak who was a winner last time out. Third place can go to Mead Vale who drops in trip and remains open to improvement.
  1. Magical Thomas
  2. Borak
  3. Mead Vale
