Won twice here in 2016, and placed over hurdles in October for Gary Moore. Well behind Second Page on first run for this yard last time and should have come on a bit for that run. Should be more to come with conditions fine.

Been running well of late over hurdles without winning. Won on last flat start off 4lb lower and makes Fibresand debut today. Chance of more to come.

Showed improved form to win when well backed here over C&D in December. Solid run at Chelmsford since and has sound claims of running a big race once again.

Yet to win in 18 races for this yard but often runs well. Seems suited by this track and tends to travel sweetly on it. Should run his race again even if finding one or two too good.

Won at Newcastle off 7lb lower last April but has failed to reach that level since. Makes Fibresand debut and shaped last time like he could be coming to hand. Player if building on that.

Loves it around here and bounced back to form with an emphatic success over 2m½ last month. Riders claim offsets much of the penalty and will be a huge player once again if in the same mood.

Only win came here but was well held by Katie Gale when they clashed here last month. Run two solid races since and is another that will be in the shake-up if running to his best.

Betting

Forecast

Katie Gale (11/4), Tynecastle Park (4/1), Galileo's Spear (9/2), Colwood (5/1), Second Page (7/1), Mere Anarchy (10/1), Hediddodinthe (14/1), High Command (14/1)

Verdict

A tight race and several of these have clashed in the past. Katie Gale won well here last month and will have sound claims once more with her excellent young rider off-setting most of the penalty. High Command has not been with Mick Appleby long and should be capable of better. Minor preference is for Second Page who shaped better than the bare form here last time when hampered and should do better.
