22/1

Son of Arcadio ran with some promise before fading to be a well beaten sixth of eight on debut in a Stratford bumper. Bred to appreciate this sort of trip and should benefit for that experience so hopefully fare better.

Placed in lone point-to-point and changed hands for €40,000 afterwards. Shaped with promise in Ayr bumper last month where he was a one paced fourth of eight. This sort of trip and obstacles will suit better.

511-2OR:
5/1

Winner of a 2m4f point-to-point in June and switched to leading yard since. Hard to gauge that form with only three finishing but runner up beaten out of sight on rules debut. Market may be the best guide.

411-2OR:
7/1

Winning point-to-pointer made favourite for both bumper last term but had to settle for two seconds. Disappointing hurdles bow at Kempton over 2m5f where he stopped rapidly but should strip fitter now so better expected.

100/1

11-race maiden on the flat finished midfield on hurdles debut at Cartmel beaten 22L. In rear throughout next at Sedgefield and eventually fell at the last. Evidence far from compelling.

411-2OR:

Placed in lone point-to-point and made an encouraging start under rules when fourth of 15 over 2m5½f at Exeter. Extra 1f can only help and should be capable of going close in a contest such as this.

Second in lone point-to-point in 2017 and changed hands subsequently for €100,000. Promising start in a Chepstow maiden hurdle over 2m3½f before his run flattened out and eventually fourth of 14. Fitness boosted now and genuine claims here.

Pulled up in two novice hurdles for Tim Vaughan last winter. Both looked above average contests so too early to write him off but can't be considered for betting purposes at this stage.

411-2OR:
66/1

Showed some ability for Sir Mark Prescott last year on the flat but two starts for this yard this term saw him beaten 69L and 30L. Now goes over hurdles but coming into this on the back of such runs tempers enthusiasm.

40/1

Won a 17-runner point-to-point for five-year-old maiden mares only in May and changed hands afterwards for £20,000. Not sure she beat a great deal there but can't be ruled out in a wide open contest.

Betting

Forecast

Newtide (11/10), Modern Warfair (7/2), Halloween Harry (5/1), Kootenay River (7/1), Buddha Scheme (16/1), Browndodd (22/1), Leverock Lass (40/1), Quasi (40/1), Toronto Sound (66/1), Leopard (100/1)

Verdict

A tricky contest this with a scattering of flat, point-to-point and hurdles form to go on. The vote goes to Kim Bailey's NEWTIDE who started out under rules in a decent looking contest at Chepstow but acquitted himself well to finish fourth. With that race his first in 19 months he is entitled to have come on plenty fitness wise now and is bred to appreciate this longer trip. Modern Warfair performed to a similar level finishing fourth at Exeter and he shaped like a genuine stayer there so should also go well. Halloween Harry won his lone point-to-point and merits respect on rules debut for the powerful Hobbs/Johnson combination.
