12/1

Hasn't convinced over fences and no surprise connections switch back to the smaller obstacles now and has form over C&D from last year.

Better known as a chaser but now returns to hurdles for the first time for 18 months and he has won two of his last three in this sphere. Blinkers, which he has won in before now go back on and yard in decent nick.

Seems to have lost his way when last seen and bit to prove for now though does have cheek pieces on for the first time.

Improved when second of 12 over 2m1f when last seen in April. Big step up in trip now and has absence to overcome as well.

Remains in form and creditable second over C&D last week and has a 7lb pull for just over 1L with Vango De Vaige.

7/2

Took another step forward when beating Tea Time Fred here last week and despite the 7lb penalty he is relatively lightly raced and there should be more to come.

Formerly with Gordon Elliott, ran well from the front on second run for this yard when reeled in close home over C&D last month. Was clear of Vango De Vaige on that occasion and although that one has improved since, he shouldn't be underestimated.

Won a Bumper on debut but has generally struggled since going hurdling and would only be of interest if market spoke positively.

Point-to-point winner in the past but little form under rules and switch to handicaps last time didn't bring any improvement.

Probably flattered in a small field last time and that form may not be quite what it first appears, especially with the ground much softer today.

5/1

Just failed to land a gamble over C&D in April and probably found race coming too soon when disappointing on subsequent start. Clear chance if ready to go after a break and interesting to see if the money comes again.

Plenty of course from and again ran well when just touched off here last week over slightly shorter. Will appreciate the return to this trip and with the first time visor and 5lb well in, looks sure to figure.

Betting

Forecast

Gonnabegood (7/4), Vango De Vaige (7/2), Bact To Black (5/1), Tea Time Fred (8/1), Waterloo Warrior (12/1), Pahaska (12/1), In The Pipeline (14/1), Midnight Monty (20/1), Bellamy's Grey (25/1), Echo Watt (28/1), Tarrona (40/1), Gambling Gamut (50/1), Mighty Vic (50/1)

Verdict

GONNABEGOOD again ran well here at the last meeting and although this is a stronger race, he receives plenty of weight and makes some appeal. Waterloo Warrior is interesting going back over the smaller obstacles and along with Pahaska pose a threat in an open handicap.
