711-12OR: 120CD
5/2

Won three out of four in a purple patch as a novice last season, one of them from 2lb higher. Out of sorts over fences and back over hurdles this term, but this drop in grade could see him competitive again.

5/1

Bumper winner who has shown some promise over hurdles, particularly when 8L second at Ayr (heavy) in November. Initial mark looks harsh on his bare form, but likely that he can begin to improve now handicapping.

6/1

Scored from 4lb lower (2m4f, good) at Hexham last summer. Has improved slightly since then. Not discounted on his reappearance after wind surgery.

15/2

Showed a bit of promise in the second of his three hurdles runs, but this looks a tough mark from which to embark on life in handicaps.

710-8OR: 102
25/1

Won an Irish point on his fourth start, but has not shown enough in three hurdles runs to suggest that he can defy this mark on his handicap intro.

6/1

Veteran mare who earned one of her 13 wins over 2m1f here. Scored from 9lb higher last year, so can't write her off, especially as her last run was very much a step back in the right direction.

710-4OR: 98
4/1

Showed a bit of ability in a couple of runs at Chepstow in 2017. Not seen since April of that year and has since joined this trainer from Dai Burchell. Initial mark not excessive if he is ready after an absence. Interesting if supported.

40/1

2m4f winner at Worcester (good) in 2017, when 4lb higher. Well below that level in two runs for this trainer after an absence.

Betting

Forecast

Blottos (5/2), Big Chip And Pin (4/1), Sporting Press (5/1), Snookered (5/1), Beyondtemptation (6/1), Desert Island Dusk (6/1), Paris Protocol (15/2), Chosen Flame (25/1), Tunnel Creek (40/1)

Verdict

Blottos could do better now back in this grade, while the same applies to SNOOKERED, who gets the vote. Sporting Press looks to have been given a tough mark, but he could improve and get competitive, while Big Chip And Pin is on a handy enough initial mark based on some of his form, and could get heavily involved if ready after a lengthy layoff. Beyondtemptation is another not discounted.
