611-12OR: 127

Posted a good effort in this class over fences at Aintree in October and reverts to hurdles on a fair mark. The rider's claim is a further boost at the weights. One to consider.

511-10OR: 125BF

Registered three wins over fences earlier in the campaign but was a highly disappointing favourite when sent back over hurdles last time. Now has a bit to prove on debut for a new yard.

511-9OR: 124

Won a bumper and both previous starts over hurdles, so is respected as one that is capable of holding his own. On the downside, he's been off since last November and may need his fitness topping up.

911-7OR: 122CD

Won well over C&D (made all) last November but has been below that standard in all three subsequent starts - the last of which was his return after wind surgery. The drop in trip may help but still has something to prove.

911-7OR: 122CD

C&D winner last month and has a solid enough chance of making the frame from just a 2lb higher mark. Has won twice on the bounce before now and would have to be of interest if the betting market backs up his claims.

411-6OR: 121

Improved since joining his current yard and already has a couple of wins to his name from a light career over hurdles. Up significantly in trip but has sound place claims if he stays the distance.

511-6OR: 121C

Drops in class here after a sound display at Carlisle last month; finished mid division but was still in with a chance until the very late stages. A danger to all if able to dish out a repeat dose.

811-3OR: 118C

Generally consistent and should strip fitter this time around. However, he's not the most fluent at his obstacles and you have to go back to 2015 to note his last win over hurdles (registered at this course). Others more convincing.

9
811-0OR: 115BF

Races from 2lb lower than his last winning mark and showed the benefit of his seasonal debut with a really solid effort last time out. Has been placed over this sort of distance, so has a good number of ticks in the right boxes.

Betting

Forecast

Court Liability (7/4), Arthurs Secret (6/1), Island Heights (13/2), Craig Star (7/1), Montanna (7/1), Traditional Dancer (15/2), Blunder Buss (8/1), Sword Of Fate (8/1), Fly Vinnie (12/1)

Verdict

There was a lot to like about the way BLUNDER BUS ran in a better grade last time out and, even though he was eventually well held, he still showed sufficient enough promise to suggest his turn isn't too far away. Arthur's Secret is 3lb better off with the selection from the last time they encountered each other and may pose a threat if he's able to dig a bit deeper than he has of late. However, recent form suggest the likes of Island Heights and Traditional Dancer may be more capable of presenting a more sustained challenge on this occasion.
