Valadomt,v48
1011-12OR: 124D
7/1

Stays well and wins in his turn but brushed aside when the tempo increased when back over fences last time out and this looks a tough ask. The rider's claim helps at the weights but the gelding needs to be at his best on these terms.

5/1

Won three times over fences and no issues with racing on soft ground. He's never won over this sort of trip though and needs to prove he has the stamina to cope.

1011-11OR: 123
7/1

Has a good record of making the frame over fences but finds winning a tough process (last success registered in 2015). Now 5lb below his last winning mark but his tendency to find little in a finish is off-putting.

8/1

C&D winner in 2016 but not tasted success since. Still 5lb above that winning mark and no easy task in handicapping terms. Tries a tongue tie for the first time but a lot taken on trust for him to recapture his best.

8/1

Unexposed over fences but needs to improve greatly on what he's shown in three previous attempts at chasing. The new trip might bring some improvement though. One to monitor in the betting.

4/1

Reasonable efforts since returning from wind surgery and has been placed six times from previous ten attempts in chases; yet to win though. On a handy mark and worth considering here.

9/4

Won a couple of modest races lately and big bonus that he likes this course. Gone up a stone in the weights for those exertions but feasible he's still got more in the tank. Entitled to be thereabouts.

Betting

Forecast

Sideways (9/4), Volt Face (4/1), Un Prophete (5/1), Kayf Blanco (7/1), Valadom (7/1), Halo Moon (8/1), Jurby (8/1)

Verdict

A modest contest can go the way of JURBY, who is still open to improvement over fences and shapes as if this step in trip should suit. Volt Face has a solid record of making the frame and is another to bear in mind as he's got very little to prove in this sort of company. Sideways and top weight Valdom can also make this a good test.
