16/1

His useful form on the Flat and over hurdles for Alan King feels a long time ago now despite some reasonable form for this yard on the Flat and over hurdles. He's not straightforward though and remains very hard to win with in either sphere.

7/1

Won twice over hurdles at this trip last year and remains 3lb above her last winning mark. Ran with credit when she was last seen if a little bit too free to do herself justice and she may need this return run to take the fizz out of her.

9/4

C&D winner who returned to something like his best here last time out with this 2m trip looking to suit him well. Generally ridden prominently and responds well to pressure but is fully exposed and may prove vulnerable to any improvers.

20/1

Won at Listed level on the Flat in Ireland over 1m4f (one of two wins) but has yet to score over hurdles (0-10) despite some fair form. Still without the headgear he wore in Ireland and came from a hopeless position on stable debut; more to come.

Looks to be in the grip of the handicapper now despite some consistent performances with the best of his form coming at Hereford (failed to stay over 3m1f there last time). Still in form and better at this trip but his mark looks a tough one now.

Had just the one outing for Dan Skelton (strong in the market) at Market Rasen just under a year ago; finished runner-up (2m4f). Looks a fragile if talented sort who now makes his stable debut; one to note if the market speaks in his favour.

Yard have proved themselves with this type and he's shown good form so far for them highlighted by a Sandown win (2m, heavy) off an 8lb lower mark. Progressed again last time (track too sharp) and looks to make his mark again.

13/2

Caused a 25-1 shock when taking a Plumpton handicap hurdle off a 10lb lower mark on a return to action after 7 months off. Ran as well as before in defeat next time over the same C&D but the handicapper may have got to her rather quickly.

510-6OR: 99
20/1

Yet to win a race on the Flat (0-6) or hurdles (0-6) having shown his best form in testing conditions. Struggling for form at the moment finishing last of 14 at Wetherby last time having raced in a clear lead; can be quirky and best watched for now.

Betting

Forecast

Clayton (9/4), Shaw's Cross (9/4), Legend Of France (13/2), Potters Midnight (7/1), Cougar Kid (8/1), Ardamir (16/1), The Major General (20/1), Ulysses (20/1), Future Security (33/1)

Verdict

It’s always hard to write off Clayton over this C&D where he has often performed at his best but he does look rather exposed and they look to be one or two improving sorts in the field. They are headed by SHAWS CROSS who despite finding Wincanton too sharp last time still had the look of a horse on the up and he’s taken to get back to winning ways. Both Legend Of France and Cougar Kid are capable sorts but the handicapper looks to have curtailed their progress for now. If there is one lurking with intent then it’s The Major General who was given a lot to do last time and was useful on the Flat in Ireland and any market support should be noted as it should be for Future Security.
  1. Shaw's Cross
  2. The Major General
  3. Clayton
