611-13OR: 128
15/8

Dual hurdle winner who ran particularly well in a hot race won by Global Citizen at Newbury two starts ago. Back in much calmer waters and has a sound chance despite conceding weight all round.

511-9OR:
14/1

Put two ordinary efforts behind him when landing a weak five-runner maiden at Sedgefield. Much more needed in a better race, but is going the right way.

611-9OR: 127
13/8

Off the mark on second start over hurdles when scoring at Wetherby, form which has worked out well. Step up in trip should suit and this unexposed sort ought to go close.

511-9OR: 120
7/1

Won a Kelso maiden for Jane Williams and was having his first run for this trainer when third of nine, beaten quite a long way, at Sedgefield last month. Needs to find more against a couple of these rivals.

611-3OR:
14/1

Better of two runs in bumpers when third to a talented sort at Huntingdon. Needs to up his game after ordinary hurdling debut, however.

611-3OR:
8/1

Behind Daario Naharis on latest outing over hurdles, his second run over timber. Previous effort on good ground at Ludlow was promising so perhaps he may be able to bounce back on this sounder surface.

Betting

Forecast

Doctor Dex (13/8), What's Occurring (15/8), Romeo Brown (7/1), Finalshot (8/1), Daario Naharis (14/1), Bolton Boy (14/1)

Verdict

What's Occurring boasts a decent level of form, but in DOCTOR DEX he faces an unexposed rival who is open to plenty of improvement, especially over this longer trip. The others have plenty to find and the best of them may be Finalshot, who shaped well on decent ground on his hurdling debut before disappointing on soft last time.
