411-12OR: 115D
5/1

Held on the Flat last week, but if you can forgive him that, his recent hurdles form entitles him to be very competitive after just a 1lb rise in this code. Claims.

Came good over hurdles at Fakenham (2m, good) in October and was back in similar form at Taunton last time. Should be thereabouts.

5/1

Consistent performer who is suffering for that at the hands of the assessor. Up 3lb for another good effort last time. Gets on well with this pilot, but needs to pull out more to better his recent finishes in the frame.

5/1

Not a bad effort in novices' company at Huntingdon in February, although that hasn't worked out to be the strongest of contests. Held on handicap debut last time and more needed from 2lb lower.

Was back in better form at Hereford last time, his second start after wind surgery. Still open to some improvement and may be capable of better now dropped another 2lb.

7/2

Won his last two in cheekpieces (both under this jockey) at Plumpton (good to firm) and Uttoxeter (good). Up another 7lb and in a better race, but with conditions in his favour, he is not ruled out.

Betting

Forecast

Wenceslaus (7/2), Jacbequick (4/1), Falcon Sun (9/2), Cougar Kid (5/1), Peur De Rien (5/1), Lazarus (5/1)

Verdict

An interesting heat, where several have claims. Lazarus ought to be thereabouts now back in this code, while Jacbequick has a solid profile and could go close. Cougar Kid may not be up to winning it, but is another who should be in the shake-up, while Wenceslaus clearly has to be respected now upped in grade. However, the suggestion is FALCON SUN, who was back in better form last time and may now be able to kick on after a little more help from the handicapper.
