7/2

Loves it here and on testing ground. Decent effort at Kelso in April, after a lengthy absence. Since bought for £16,000 and goes chasing for new stable. Interesting.

Good reappearance after wind surgery in a 2m1f novice event here. Full-brother to Ballabriggs, he could do better now trying chasing. Stable in good form. Market check.

4/6

In great form over hurdles lately and won by 21L from this mark last time. Previous chase runs leave a bit to be desired, but now looks a good time to try him again. Claims.

11/2

0-10, but has a few pieces of form over hurdles that would give her claims here, if she is able to replicate them. Has shown a bit or promise on both chase runs, and one of the more likely contenders here.

Betting

Forecast

Xpo Universel (4/6), Divine Port (7/2), Trooblue (11/2), Ballasalla (8/1), Blue Bullet (10/1), Vasco D'ycy (14/1)

Verdict

Several in with chances here. Ballasalla ran well on his return from wind surgery last month, though he would probably look better suited by a bit further. Divine Port is of interest on his debut for Pauline Robson, while Vasco D'ycy has a squeak if he is ready after an absence. Trooblue looks a serious player, but it is hard to get away from the wide margin hurdles win by XPO UNIVERSAL last time and he is taken to finally come good over fences.
