Consistent performer and gained a third career win and first for this stable over 1m4f at Wolverhampton. That rates as a career-best and won with plenty in hand. Drop in trip isn't an issue and likely to go close again under a penalty.

Showed steady progress in five starts for Michael Dods and excuses on stable debut when badly hampered and snatched up. Should be better suited by this trip and drop in grade and a better performance likely.

Last Flat win came in 2016 but twice a winner over hurdles last year. May need the first run since October but returns on a good mark and worth a market check.

Still a maiden following 11 Flat starts but a consistent type and latest close effort made it five places from eight handicap starts. Could go close again but hasn't shaped as though this step up in trip would help.

Had been completely out of form before springing a surprise place at Kempton in August but has failed to back that up three times since. Others preferred.

16-race maiden who is proving frustrating in his quest for a first win and again found trouble before running on too late over a mile at Chelmsford. Seems to need a break between runs so absence not a worry. Holds place possibilities again.

Claiming winner in France for first stable but showed nothing in three starts for latest yard and bought for latest connections for €6,000. Best watched on seasonal, UK and stable debut.

Infrequent winner but only 1lb higher than last success over this trip at Chelmsford in October. Below-par at Kempton latest but drop in grade and trip should help and holds place possibilities.

Dual AW winner (7f-1m); in poor form since late 2017 and hard to make a case for based on four well-beaten efforts this campaign.

Nine-time course winner and now 6lb lower than the last of them over this C&D. On a consistent run of form of late and shouldn't be far away again.

Six starts for three different trainers have been to a similar standard without showing any signs of progress. Much more needed in first-time visor.

Returned from a 174-days break with a second in a three-runner affair over 1m4f here. That rates as good form down to this grade and remains competitively handicapped. Well-drawn to attack from the front and can go well.

11-race maiden was placed twice for John Gosden and below that level in six starts for new yard. Better last twice including over this C&D but more needed again.

Six-race maiden but comes off a decent fifth over 1m3f at Kempton when leading from a wide-draw. Down 2lb and drop to this trip may prove ideal. Can be competitive.

Betting

Forecast

Arabic Culture (5/2), Subliminal (9/2), Barrsbrook (6/1), Natch (7/1), Attain (10/1), Orobas (11/1), Sunbreak (11/1), Sir Gnet (14/1), Rainbow Jazz (14/1), Shufoog (16/1), Cherbourg (16/1), Royal Goldie (33/1), Tebay (33/1), Neff (50/1)

Verdict

OROBAS ran well in a small but competitive affair here and this drop in trip and good draw are very much in his favour. He gets a narrow verdict over Arabic Culture who will be running on strongly late on this quick reappearance following a stylish success. Tebay remains open to plenty of improvement and his latest run is easily excused.
