5/2

Was the best of the juvenile hurdlers last season until blotting her copybook in the big events at the Spring festivals by pulling too hard. Clearly has the ability to make light of her handicap mark but would like to see her settle better first.

7/1

Mud lover who ran his rivals into the ground over C&D last month. 10lb higher in a stronger race but may again get the run of the race and his ability to see cope with the conditions have to put him on anyone's short list.

Didn't take to the larger obstacles on recent chase debut and will be happier back over hurdles but ground as soft as this an unknown even though he has the form to figure.

Unbeaten in two visits here and well ridden by today's claimer on the most recent of them. His ability to stay further will be a big plus in these conditions.

A couple of placed efforts when last seen in 2016/17 season but yet to win a race and will have to return at the top of his form to break his duck off his long absence.

10/1

Finished last season on a low though certainly found 2m7f beyond him when last seen. Has had a wind operation since and conditions are fine so a big run wouldn't surprise.

Weak in market for comeback run here but ran as well as could be expected given he came from a long way back to be beaten 10L by Totterdown. Enjoys a 9lb pull and can be expected to get closer.

A regular in these handicaps and often flatters to deceive. Place claims at best but long losing run now dates back to 2014.

Career best when last seen at Chepstow in April when bolting up in heavy ground. Up 10lb for that but if ready to go after a break could outrun his odds.

Presumably amiss when disappointing on last run a year ago but had earlier looked a progressive type. Can be keen and untried on ground this soft are concerns.

Betting

Forecast

Apple's Shakira (5/2), Nelson's Touch (11/2), Eragon De Chanay (6/1), Totterdown (7/1), Man Of Plenty (8/1), I'm A Game Changer (8/1), Friday Night Light (10/1), Ardmayle (16/1), Thounder (16/1), Timoteo (50/1)

Verdict

TOTTERDOWN almost certainly won't get the easy lead he enjoyed here last month but could just be an improving type and can shrug off the 10lb rise. Eragon De Chanay has stamina to spare which has to make him of interest while Nelson's Touch can be expected to finish closer to the selection then last time with that run under his belt.
