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.

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.

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.

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.

7
Age: 6|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: Sam Coltherd |  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
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.

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.

Betting

Forecast

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
