612-5OR: 104
10/11

Broke his hurdles duck when scoring in a determined manner at Hereford (2m3f+) last week; carries a 7lb penalty for that success, but this longer trip is within range and conditions should be riding very similar today; leading contender.

512-1OR: 107
9/2

Still open to improvement under rules after making just three starts (cost £20,000 out of the Irish PTP scene); evidently handles the majority of ground conditions and isn't harshly treated from an opening handicap mark of 107.

612-0OR: 106
10/1

Reverts to hurdling (0-4) for the first time since March following a laboured effort at Exeter (2m1f+) latest; the forecast ground conditions are less of a concern than his more obvious stamina flaws (totally unproven).

9/2

Mare who has very much found her voice (and feet) post wind surgery; driven out when beating The Redballoon by 1¼L at Southwell (2m, good) latest; half-sister to a 3m hurdle winner, so should stay further; solid chance.

7/1

16-race hurdles maiden who continues on a downward spiral in the weights; placed on various occasions as a novice but those runs are a very faint memory nowadays; not the solution.

410-2OR: 80
50/1

Soundly beaten in both starts in handicap company (over hurdles) and is a 17-race maiden under rules; holds little conceivable chance on all known form.

Verdict

Barring accidents, this race lies between the recent winners Stop Talking and DESTINED TO SHINE. The Jennie Candlish-trained mare is a improved performer for wind surgery and should handle this step up in trip being a half-sister to the 3m hurdle winner High Ho Sheriff, but last week's 10L Hereford scorer is preferred. Kerry Lee's 6yo Dubai Destination gelding ploughed through the rain-softened ground beating Soulsaver in a determined manner. Switched to a conditional jockeys' race under a 7lb penalty (with Jonjo O'Neill Jnr aboard), he looks primed for a continued winning spell with rain now becoming an ever increasing fixture.
