9/2

Won over C&D (in December) when wearing a visor for the first time; backed it up quickly under a penalty at Exeter the following week. Not so good in his last couple of starts but fact he goes well here a positive. Still a stiff test at the weights.

Lightly raced but failed to build on the promise shown in bumpers last year. Plenty to prove regarding the step up in trip too. Others make more appeal on face value.

Won a point-to-point two years ago but very lightly raced under rules since. Finished tailed off in both of his starts after returning from a break and hard to recommend on recent evidence.

Showed little in three starts over the minimum distance but was in the process of running a decent race when he tipped up in the latter stages over 2m5f latest. Not much to find if his jumping hold together this time.

Not stood much racing lately and has been below par in all starts since returning from a long absence. The trip shouldn't be an issue but a big step forward is required.

Back over regulation fences after a couple of poor efforts in point-to-points; difficult to see the gelding making much of an impact.

Well beaten in all starts so far and was pulled up when tried over this trip latest. First-time cheekpieces need to prompt a bit of a transformation. Probably safe to omit from the betting plans this time.

Won a bumper a couple of seasons ago but has been blighted by breathing issues since. Probably best watched now he returns from another wind operation.

Winner of a point-to-point but form under rules has been modest. Been off since last May and is probably another that is best watched on his return from a break and debut run for a new yard

Showed some promise in point-to-points but has yet to deliver now he races under rules. Big improvement required even in a modest race such as this.

Justified favouritism at Kempton (2m5f, good to soft) latest and must enter the calculations from just a 3lb higher mark this time. Yet to race over this trip and wouldn't want the ground too soft but has to be a player in this company.

Has won under both codes of racing and has gone well at this course before now. Stamina to prove over this new trip but dangerous to underestimate in a low key race like this.

Snippets of form suggest the mare is capable of more; also noteworthy that her rider's 10lb claim leaves her on a featherweight; but she has a it to find with Mauna Kea though. The betting can indicate where she stands with stablemate My Lady Grey.

Potentially well handicapped for a moderate event and would have place claims if able to build on her last two starts. Hard to see the mare improving at her age but not unfeasible to suggest she can make the frame if others falter.

Betting

Forecast

Urtheonethatiwant (13/8), Sandy Boy (7/2), Mauna Kea (9/2), Motts Cross (12/1), Princess Midnight (12/1), Three In One (16/1), Mollyow (16/1), My Lady Grey (20/1), Mr Lando (25/1), Quarry Wizard (25/1), The Ibbster (28/1), Stand By Me (33/1), Willie Mclovin (66/1), Anis Des Malberaux (100/1)

Verdict

Questions can be raised about the majority of the field as the likes of Mauna Kea, Mollyow and Princess Midnight all have the ability to figure but come with risks attached for one reason or another. Similar comments apply to Urtheonethatiwant, who has to merit respect after winning last time out but needs to prove his stamina over this trip. Therefore, preference goes to SANDY BOY, who seemed to be relishing the step up in trip until he fell two out in his latest start. If his jumping holds together the gelding may well gain compensation this time.
  1. Sandy Boy
  2. Urtheonethatiwant
