912-0OR: 102
4/1

Has a record of 1-36. Would have decent claims from this mark on some of his form of two seasons ago. Seen only twice since and despite another 3lb drop, he will need to improve of his most recent effort at Sedgefield.

1011-12OR: 100
11/4

Without a win since February of last year, but has been competitive in all of his last six starts. Back up 2lb after his latest Exeter effort, so probably has solid place claims again.

16/1

1-23. Off the track for 18-months ahead of this stable debut, which also sees him switch back to hurdles. Has a squeak strictly on the form book, but fully entitled to need this after such a layoff.

Softer ground will be a help to him, but well below his best for several starts now and looks one to watch.

5/4

Would enter calculations on her best form and returned from a break with a respectable effort at Hereford in October. 4lb lower and with this drop in trip probably positive, she is respected.

711-9OR: 97
12/1

Has won five times on the Flat from 5f-7f. Yet to show much over hurdles and initial mark looks plenty stiff enough.

Well held in all starts so far, and this initial mark looks a tough on strictly on that form.

Has never won a race of any kind under either code, or in point-to-points. 4lb 'wrong' and others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

The Crazed Moon (5/4), Catchin Time (11/4), The Herds Garden (4/1), Rock N'stones (11/1), Bonjour Steve (12/1), Sarpech (16/1), Okmyway (25/1), Sporty Yankee (40/1)

Verdict

A very weak contest, where The Herds Garden may be capable of making more of an impact, and Catchin Time looks to have very solid place credentials. Preference is for THE CRAZED MOON, who makes some appeal from this mark, now dropped again in trip. Keep an eye on the market with regard to the chance of Sarpech, after a lengthy absence.
  1. The Crazed Moon
  2. Catchin Time
  3. The Herds Garden
