4/1
Certainly knows how to win and although a bit disappointing when third at Fontwell comes from a stable in good nick and should play a part.

100/1
Winner in France. Tailed off on British debut over hurdles and has to improve a lot in a short space of time to figure here.

8/1
Emphatically landed a gamble over C&D in November. Remained in good from prior to fall on latest. Generally runs his race which should be enough to go well again here.

Never Up347
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-7| J: Sean Quinlan| T: Mrs S J Smith| OR:  113| CD
16/1
Well below form when last seen in the spring but did win over C&D on first run last season so can obviously go well after a break and interesting to see how he goes in the market compared to stable companion Absolutely Dylan.

Age: 6|  Weight: 11-6| J: Danny Cook| T: Mrs S J Smith| OR:  112
11/4
From a yard with a very good record in this particular race. Followed up Haydock win with creditable effort in better race so one to take very seriously.

Rhymers Stonep51
Age: 11|  Weight: 11-5| J: Callum Bewley| T: Mrs H O Graham| OR:  111| C
14/1
Hasn't shown enough on his two runs back over fences after a break to be of major interest here.

Pookie Pekan29
Age: 6|  Weight: 11-5| J: Sam Coltherd(5)| T: W Coltherd| OR:  111| BF| D
5/2
Probably remains in good heart as he seemed to do too much too soon at Ayr last time and still young enough to take a step forward.
8
Ueueteotlb29
Age: 11|  Weight: 11-3| J: B S Hughes| T: J Ewart| OR:  109| C| D
9/1
Doesn't make it to the track too often and despite running creditably on comeback, his losing run goes back to 2016.
9
Knocknamona54
Age: 8|  Weight: 10-11| J: A P Cawley| T: Micky Hammond| OR:  103| D
18/1
In fantastic form last winter and although yet to win this season has shown on occasions that the ability is till there and a bold bid wouldn't surprise.

Forecasts

Pookie Pekan (5/2), Absolutely Dylan (11/4), Native Robin (4/1), Ryalex (8/1), Ueueteotl (9/1), Rhymers Stone (14/1), Never Up (16/1), Knocknamona (18/1), Event Of Sivola (100/1)

Verdict

ABSOLUTELY DYLAN wasn't disgraced in a stronger contest last time and can get back on the winning trail. Native Robin has travelled up a long way and should pose a threat. Pookie Pekan is better than shown last time and is another threat.
  1. Absolutely Dylan
  2. Native Robin
  3. Pookie Pekan
