912-6OR: 122D
6/4

Likes to make all and arrives here in the form of his life. Up just 2lb after his latest win (Fakenham last time out) and should again make the rest aware of his presence. Solid claim once more.

5/2

Failed to cut the mustard during his time with Paul Nicholls but still managed to win over hurdles and mainly jumps well. Has lacked a change of gear when push comes to shove though and possible he needs a longer trip these days.

7/2

Likes this course and was ahead of Monsieur Co when they met here last month. His consistency is admirable but he lacks scope for improvement at his age and his limitations are plain to see.

911-9OR: 111D
6/1

Has found Civil Unrest a tough customer to deal with on a couple of occasions already and his recent form suggests he'll struggle to turn things around. Needs a lot to go his way.

910-10OR: 98D
18/1

Knows how to win when things fall into place for him but the gelding has been brushed aside in modest company lately and even a plunging handicap mark isn't enough to suggest he's capable of stopping the rot just now.

Forecast

Ontopoftheworld (6/4), Monsieur Co (5/2), Civil Unrest (7/2), Chain Of Beacons (6/1), Charlie Snow Angel (18/1)

Verdict

With significant doubts existing about all of his rivals, this may be a good bit of placement for ONTOPOFTHEWORLD, whose recent form trumps that of his rivals by some way. The nine-year-old has done nothing but flourish since he joined Peter Bowen's yard and is fancied to make the most of what looks like a good chance for him to get another win under his belt. Civil Unrest already holds the likes of Monsieur Co and Chain Of Beacons, and he looks the safest option to recommend as an alternative. Charlie Snow Angel is a bit of a law unto himself but could also pose a threat if the selection's big weight turns out to be problematic.
