511-4OR: CD
8/1

Unbeaten under both codes since joining this trainer, winning five off the reel on the Flat, from 1m6f-2m½f, mostly on good to firm, and then walking over here last time. Penalised for that, but no reason why he can't give another very good account.

511-4OR: 121BFD
11/4

Scored at Wetherby (2m3½f, good) in November, and bettered that under a penalty over the same C&D last time. May still be more to come, though, there will probably need to be if he is to get back to winning ways again this time.

410-12OR:
6/1

Improved on his Newton Abbot bumper debut when introduced to hurdles at Chepstow (2m, soft) last month. Stayed on well there, so this extra half-mile looks in his favour. If he handles fast ground he could go close.

510-5OR:
4/5

Irish point-to-point winner who, like some of her sire's progeny, showed a quirky side when jinking right on her rules debut at Warwick (2m5f, good) last month. Showed some ability there and has claims in receipt of weight here.

Betting

Forecast

She Mite Bite (4/5), Skidoosh (11/4), Dark Episode (6/1), Bailarico (8/1)

Verdict

A potentially muddling contest with such a small field, but SHE MITE BITE looks a reasonably attractive proposition with her allowance and a 6lb claim to help, after a promising hurdles debut. She showed a quirky side to her there, but in receipt of so much weight, she looks worth the risk. Bailarico is not taken on lightly, but it will be a fair effort to successfully concede over a stone. Dark Episode also looks a threat now upped in trip.
