611-5OR:
16/1

Fair form on the Flat, winning Doncaster handicaps off marks of 77 and 78. Hurdles debut over C&D last time out wasn't all that impressive but yard in form and likely capable of better.

Couldn't manage to get his head in front on the Flat and returns from a lengthy absence here for hurdles debut. Likely best watched.

5/1

Won a handicap off a mark of 83 on final start on the Flat and has run well on both hurdles starts since, not beaten far at Musselburgh before a respectable effort behind a smart sort at Sedgefield last time. Won't be far away.

611-5OR:
4/1

Showed plenty in bumper company and made an encouraging start to life over hurdles at Musselburgh last time, despite not jumping all that well. Every chance he will continue to improve here.

511-5OR:
13/8

Useful Flat performer (80-rated handicap winner) who was thrown in at the deep end on hurdles debut in a Grade 2 event. This event looks much less testing and yard are enjoying a good season; interesting contender.

711-5OR: CD
25/1

A winner of six of his 47 starts on the Flat. Ran okay in a couple of novice hurdles last season and out of form on the Flat when last seen. May be of interest when he goes handicapping in this sphere.

711-5OR:
12/1

Won an Ascot handicap off 92 on the Flat but not bred to stay this far and shaped like a non-stayer at Uttoxeter on hurdles debut last time. Quicker ground should help in that regard and not ruled out if he gets the trip.

511-5OR:
8/1

Didn't show a whole lot in point-to-point company but his Rules debut in a maiden hurdle at Newcastle was encouraging enough when third of 11 and only beaten 2L. Different ground this time and may do even better when tried over further.

711-5OR:
200/1

Fairly useful on the Flat (AW winner off a mark of 70) but has shown nothing in three starts over hurdles since wind surgery. Risky proposition at present.

511-5OR:
16/1

A maiden after five starts under Rules. Unseated rider on his seasonal return at Down Royal and too keen at Sedgefield last time. Drops back to 2m and might be one to watch when sent handicapping.

510-12OR:

Tailed off in a bumper and pulled up on hurdles debut last time, sent off at 250/1. Hard to fancy on all known form.

610-12OR:
100/1

Placed in a point-to-point in the summer but has struggled under Rules so far, well beaten in both bumpers and hurdles races. Best watched at present.

Forecast

Garbanzo (13/8), Doctor Dex (4/1), Constancio (5/1), Oscar Wilde (8/1), Bally Conor (10/1), Leader Writer (12/1), The Big Galloper (16/1), Archippos (16/1), Ingleby Hollow (25/1), Dara's Present (33/1), City Limits (50/1), Splash The Cash (100/1), Piccalilli Pie (200/1), Start Seven (200/1)

Verdict

CONSTANCIO has run well on both his hurdles start this season and he just about sets the standard on form here for a trainer/jockey combination that do well around here. Garbanzo will find this easier than his test in Listed class last time while Leader Writer has each-way claims if he can see out this trip.
