811-12OR: 97
14/1

Winning point-to-pointer with an inconsistent record. Has been known to burst blood vessels and jumping has let him down lately.

11/2

Only won once in 28 starts with that victory gained in November 2015. Nevertheless made favourite for a better race than this on yard debut and this is more his trip.

3/1

Has run half of his races here, winning once and placed on three other occasions. Wind surgery has certainly been beneficial and trainer has found him another good opportunity.

8/11

Transformed by blinkers as he has bounded clear of his rivals to win his last two including one over C&D. Jumped better here than was the case at Uttoxeter last time, but another positive ride could see a few of these yield easily.

Betting

Forecast

Coopers Square (8/11), Arthur's Reuben (3/1), Misdflight (11/2), Minmore Present (14/1), The Jugopolist (33/1)

Verdict

COOPERS SQUARE has been a revelation since being blinkered and, with misgivings about his rivals, looks the one to be on here despite a big rise in the weights. Misdflight was a beaten favourite on his yard debut and will find this trip more to his liking although there is a suspicion the front-running selection may get him off the bridle earlier than he would like. Arthur's Reuben scored here on his penultimate start when he idled in front and he looked a difficult ride last time. He would be another who would not want to be asked too many questions too early by the likely pacemaker.
