69-8OR: 76CD
2/1

Best run for some time when close third over C&D nine days ago. Has to cope with a 1lb rise, but has won off this mark and may be ready to hit peak form.

Behind Athollblair Boy when sixth over C&D on latest start. Down 2lb, but has a bit to find in first-time cheekpieces.

Just denied over C&D last month, having won at this venue in November. Has to cope with another 3lb rise, but warrants considerable respect.

Only one win in 24 starts and that came on turf. Most recent displays over further have disappointing so he arrives with plenty of questions to answer.

9/1

Trained by Gay Kelleway when third of nine in a Southwell seller last month and now tries his luck for a new handler. Has won on turf off this mark, but is 0-6 on AW surfaces.

All four AW wins have been achieved on the Southwell Fibresand. Looks high enough in the weights and record at this track is ordinary.

14/1

Experienced campaigner who was having his first run for current trainer after leaving Ron Thompson's yard when a 2L sixth of 11 at Wolverhampton last month. Certainly not out of it off 2lb lower.

Sound effort to finish second of 12 over C&D last month. Has gone up 1lb, but would have decent prospects if able to back up that effort.

Some way behind Avenue Of Stars on latest outing over C&D. Looks to have quite a bit to find on that evidence, but had previously scored at Kempton.

Betting

Forecast

Athollblair Boy (2/1), Katheefa (4/1), Avenue Of Stars (11/2), Lucky Lodge (17/2), Capla Demon (9/1), Duke Cosimo (14/1), Johnny Cavagin (14/1), Kentuckyconnection (16/1), Kommander Kirkup (33/1)

Verdict

Avenue Of Stars, Johnny Cavagin and Lucky Lodge boast recent form which gives them solid each-way claims, but the vote goes to top-weight ATHOLLBLAIR BOY, who shaped as though returning to his best over C&D recently and looks quite nicely treated.
  1. Athollblair Boy
  2. Avenue Of Stars
  3. Lucky Lodge
