17/2

Showed improved form when beaten 9L by Aye Right on his third hurdles start (2m5f, good) in October; sports newly applied cheekpieces on handicap debut.

Beaten 6L by Diggin Deep on debut for Keith Dalgleish at Musselburgh (3m, good) 13-days ago; further progress is possible but a subsequent 2lb rise in the weights is unmerited.

Upped in trip to 2m4f at Perth in April (soft) and in gamely chasing home Mill Forge produced his best effort so far; 3lb higher on seasonal reappearance.

11-race hurdles maiden who has made the frame in each of his last two starts (hurdles and fences); his Sedgefield form has been franked since by Millie The Minx.

Dropping slowly in the weights since leaving the care of Daniel Mark Loughnane; remains a maiden (0-10).

Off the track for 570-days since finishing a staying on fourth (beaten 7¾L) to Onlyfoolsownhorses at Perth (2m4f) in May 2017; remains a maiden (0-8), but isn't fully exposed in handicap company.

Has failed to show up positively since a mildly encouraging debut in desperate conditions at Newcastle (2m4f, heavy) in April; opening handicap mark of 97 looks to be plenty high enough on balance.

Maiden under rules (0-8), but overcome plenty of obstacles en-route to making a winning PTP debut at Turtulla (3m mares' maiden, good) last month; feared back over hurdles with Daryl Jacob a notable booking.

Has started at big prices and shown poor form in three starts in novice company at Hexham during May and June; off since, this half-brother to PTP winner Ripstick goes handicapping off an opening mark of 88.

16-race maiden; generally ultra-consistent, so should be in the mix over this slightly reduced trip after reasonably solid efforts at Hexham and Doncaster - beaten just 2½L latest.

21-race maiden (0-12 over hurdles); no obvious issues with ground or trip, but didn't appear to be the most genuine of mares in defeat at Haydock during the week; unlikely.

Shown glimmers of ability, most notably on debut in a Newcastle bumper in December 2016; possible that this extended 2m6f trip is within range and could be viewed as unexposed in handicaps; possible improver; chance.

Still to deliver the knockout blow to his rivals (0-11); pulled-up when last seen in competitive action at Wetherby in March (3m, soft).

Betting

Forecast

Triangle Rock (5/2), Border Victor (9/2), Chocolat Noir (8/1), Scales Of Justice (17/2), Silk Or Scarlet (10/1), Heather Burning (12/1), Humps And Bumps (14/1), Budarri (14/1), Katalystic (16/1), St George's Oval (20/1), K O Kenny (25/1), Excalibur (66/1), Cudgel (66/1), Luvly Boy Blue (66/1)

Verdict

Plenty of runners, but a distinct lack of quality on offer. Triangle Rock hasn't been with Keith Dalgleish for all that long and could be the type to progress for a new handler, but he probably didn't merit a small rise in the weights for his second placed effort at Musselburgh. Border Victor remains a longstanding maiden, but in fair form at present has a shout, whilst both Katalystic and Humps and Bumps are worth monitoring in the market exchanges. However, a real speculative shout is for the Rose Dobbin-trained HEATHER BURNING. Evidently some ability lies within, and the hope is that this new trip (dam related to a stayer) can unlock that potential.
  1. Heather Burning
  2. Triangle Rock
  3. Silk Or Scarlet
