611-12OR: 99
15/2

28-race maiden (bulk of those starts in France); has failed to complete in four of his five starts over fences; visor now applied.

611-11OR: 98
7/4

Made a promising start in bumpers/novice hurdles before going off the boil thereafter; made a fairly solid chasing debut when an 8L runner-up to Le Frank over C&D last month; cheekpieces applied.

811-8OR: 95D
10/1

Broke his duck in truly desperate conditions at Newcastle (2m, heavy) in April; off since and has left the care of Sedgefield trainer Rebecca Menzies (for £6,000); 5lb higher mark on seasonal reappearance.

911-3OR: 90
7/2

Improved performer in 2018 (42212) and well equipped for slogging through the mud at tough tracks such as Towcester and Exeter; the drop in trip is a risk but this won't take too much winning; his Wiltshire based trainer is 0-2 at Hexham.

711-2OR: 89D
5/2

Doesn't win that often, but you'd be foolish for knocking this largely consistent 7yo; produced a very strong performance from 10lb out of the handicap at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) ten days ago; rates as a fairly obvious player.

1210-0OR: 72D
33/1

Veteran who can force the pace; without a win since March 2017 (Sedgefield) and just 2-57 under rules overall; clearly not the solution.

Last RunWatch last race

1010-0OR: 62
100/1

Has raced just once since April 2016; 0-36 under rules (including 0-11 over fences); simply can't be the solution from so far out of the handicap - no chance whatsoever barring accidents.

Betting

Forecast

Echo Express (7/4), Instingtive (5/2), Kavanaghs Corner (7/2), Dulce Panem (15/2), Black Kettle (10/1), Duhallowcountry (33/1), Bertielicious (100/1)

Verdict

A thick black line can be inked through three of these runners, so the race is best viewed as a three-way tussle between Echo Express, Instingtive and KAVANAGHS CORNER. Lisa Harrison's runner produced a career best effort from 10lb out of the handicap when nabbed by the flying Calivigny at Carlisle ten days ago and should go close from his correct mark this afternoon but a marginal preference is for the Simon Earle-trained long-distance traveller who is fully proven in testing conditions at stamina sapping tracks.
