1111-12OR: 93
14/1

Strongest at Sedgefield - a four-time winner there over 2m1f; falling down the weights to a more attractive mark although surely rates as vulnerable over this 2m6f trip.

7/2

Irish raider who enjoyed a hectic festive period, winning over fences (2m4f) at Down Royal on Boxing Day and running well enough over an extended 2m5f at Tramore on New Years Day; 0-7 over hurdles.

Well backed when landing a gamble at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) in November 2017; off for 13-months thereafter and well beaten on both subsequent starts for new owners Jennifer Hill and Samantha Toomes.

611-2OR: 83WS
20/1

Seven-race maiden (0-5 over timber); has had wind surgery since pulling up at Southwell in December (2m4f+), so all hopes for a positive racing future seemingly rest upon the outcome of that operation.

40/1

Very infrequent winner (2-74 career); runner-up in a Cartmel Beginners' Chase (2m5f, soft) in July 2017 and seldom seen in competitive action since; rates as highly unlikely despite a plunging hurdles handicap mark.

4/7

No superstar, but by Milan she stays well and was a comfortable winner in first-time cheekpieces at Ayr (2m5f, good to soft) last week; escapes a penalty for that conditional jockeys' win so tough to oppose in the very capable hands of Tom Hamilton.

1210-2OR: 69
33/1

Sedgefield specialist (six-time winner at the County Durham venue) who is in a steady decline in his advancing years; difficult to be anything other than pessimistic about his chances.

710-0OR: 67
16/1

13-race maiden who appears to be fairly short on natural ability; ran adequately over C&D here earlier in the month when finishing sixth of ten (40/1) to Petite Ganache; look elsewhere.

Betting

Forecast

Magic Of Milan (4/7), Allduckornodinner (7/2), Wig Wam Wiggle (5/1), Dark And Dangerous (14/1), Millrose Bell (16/1), Birch Bank (20/1), Sendiym (33/1), Noble Call (40/1)

Verdict

Allduckornodinner is a notable first ever Newcastle runner for Navan-based trainer Gavin Cromwell, and his 9yo could be well-treated over hurdles having demonstrated improved form of late over the larger obstacles. However, it's nigh impossible to look beyond the alluring claims of Sam England's MAGIC OF MILAN. This mare is no superstar, but is a solid stayer and she reappears quickly (without a penalty) after a comfortable win at Ayr last week. Furthermore, the perfectly capable Tom Hamilton is an eye-catching jockey booking.
