20/1

Poor form posted in point-to-points has been carried over into his starts under rules. Pulled up on his debut for his new yard latest and big improvement required to figure here.

Never won over this sort of trip but does cope with this sort of distance and could make the frame if he's on his A-game today. Likes cut in the ground and would be suited by any rain.

5/1

Justified favouritism over fences here last time, confirming his liking for this particular course. Drop in trip isn't as much of a worry as the 8lb higher mark but the gelding is in rude health and can rise to the challenge. Has to be considered.

7/2

Been in good form since his return from a wind operation but steps up considerably in trip this time. First-time cheekpieces may help but the gelding still has a bit to prove regarding his stamina.

Not won since his point-to-point days and has only been lightly raced in recent times. Well beaten on his return to action in November and significant improvement required.

811-10OR: 98
16/1

All three previous wins have come on right-handed courses and never yet beyond the minimum distance. Did show improvement last time out but has a lot to prove over this distance.

811-9OR: 97
7/1

Mixed form since joining his current yard but was still going well and in contention when he fell last time out. Has a slight query to answer regarding the trip but solid enough place claims in this company if his jumping holds together.

Failed to complete in either of his two previous starts for his current yard and has plenty to prove at present. Others much more appealing.

Managed a win in a point-to-point but form under rules has been poor up to press. Difficult to recommend just now.

810-10OR: 84
33/1

Very infrequent winner but is now 4lb below the last time he tasted success. Form took a nosedive last year and best watched after making an inauspicious start for his new yard last time out.

8/1

Yet to deliver on the promise he showed on debut in a bumper at Taunton last April, form since switching to hurdles has been regressive and likely others will have more to offer. First-time blinkers need to spark a big improvement.

Set to race from 7lb below her last winning mark but is unlikely to be capable of improving on her recent form at her age. Others look to hold much stronger chances.

510-2OR: 76

A maiden under both codes - was very modest on the Flat and holds a similar profile over hurdles - and has a lot to prove. Hard to see him being good enough.

710-0OR: 74

Two starts after returning from a long absence have left a lot to be desired and the gelding has a very stiff test ahead on these terms.

1010-0OR: 72C
6/1

Set to race from 2lb out of the weights but still dangerous to rule out given his proven liking for this course. Approaching three years since his last win but his latest start was encouraging enough to suggest he could make the frame at fair odds.

Betting

Forecast

Get Wishing (7/2), Steel Native (5/1), Filatore (6/1), Cottonvale (7/1), Willow May (8/1), Great Tempo (9/1), Sandford Castle (10/1), Kilmoganny (12/1), Briac (16/1), Where Now (20/1), Bredon Hill Leo (20/1), Mollyow (25/1), Thomas Crown (25/1), Aristocracy (33/1), Bean Liath (40/1), Henchard (100/1)

Verdict

A weak opening contest can go to the in-form STEEL NATIVE, who has a lot less to prove than most and can utilise his proven ability to act on this track. Cottonvale was in the process of posting a big effort last time out and could make amends if his late fall hasn't left any mental scars, while Great Tempo and course specialist Filatore can also go close. The latter is set to race from out of the handicap but has little to find in a race like this.
  1. Steel Native
  2. Cottonvale
  3. Great Tempo
