12/1

Formerly with Willie Mullins and sold to current yard for £16,000 but has been hopelessly tailed off on all starts and can't be fancied on recent evidence

Back over hurdles following a poor display of jumping at Kempton. On a decent mark but questions remain as to whether he can handle soft ground.

Only hurdling success came in a bad race that does not warrant his current mark. Raced too freely last time and eventually tailed off, so plenty of negatives to overcome.

Having previously been difficult to win with he has now won his last two. Escapes a penalty for his latest win 10 days ago and once again has conditions in his favour.

First start over hurdles since joining her current yard but has been in flying form over fences; so worth a crack at a race like this while confidence is flourishing.

Point-to-point winner last May, may have his quirks and could be a tricky customer. Not shown a lot so far and a couple of these are on top of their game

His best efforts have come around here. Heavily penalised for a C&D success in a poor race and others make more appeal.

Winning point-topointer whose novice starts were all about education, but he appeared to bloom when upped in trip for his handicap debut at Exeter. Top rider replaces amateur and one for the shortlist.

Record of 1-22 in Ireland and has shown little either side of the peaks he achieved in mid-2017. Stable have done well with such acquisitions in the past, but hard to build a convincing case.

Placed in a point-to-point and first sign of Rules form when 29L fourth in a novice hurdle at Plumpton (2m, soft) last month. Well beaten on handicap debut since and hard to fancy.

Made little impact in two Flat starts last summer and his hurdling exploits haven't so far proved to be any better. Failed to progress from his debut last time out and now goes handicapping over an increased trip; others are more convincing.

A couple of her juvenile runs suggested that she might be able to win at some point, but she has been very poor on her last two starts

Betting

Forecast

Goodgirlteresa (4/1), King Cnut (9/2), Amzac Magic (5/1), Silver Quay (5/1), Goldslinger (7/1), Hier Encore (12/1), Itsonlyrocknroll (12/1), Ted Bach (14/1), Mine's A Pint (16/1), Flashdanza (16/1), Realt Or (16/1), Fading Icon (20/1), Beet Topper (50/1)

Verdict

Amzac Magic was something of an eyecatcher last time and the booking of a top rider adds to the intrigue, however his best point-to-point form came on better ground. As a result this looks likely to be fought out between SILVER QUAY and Goodgirltheresa as both escape penalties for scoring last time. The latter has been chasing, whilst the selection has proven himself over the smaller obstacles and on a quicker track such as he will experience here.
