1011-9OR: 102
10/3

12-race maiden who has had plenty of chances over fences; has competed exclusively at Ayr this season, running to within 2¼L of the money-spinning Glittering Love (3m, soft) last week; contender.

811-5OR: 98CD
3/1

Steadily getting his act together over fences and a return to this track on very testing ground looks to be in order. However, the handicapper is making his life tougher - now 13lb higher than when scoring by 6L at Ayr (3m, soft) latest.

811-3OR: 96
11/1

Modest maiden over hurdles but has feasibly taken a couple of runs to regain race-fitness following an extended absence from the track; travelling reasonably when falling on chasing debut at Ayr last week (in the race won by Glittering Love).

7/1

Emphatic soft ground hurdles winner over a marathon trip at Ayr (3m2f+ handicap) in March 2016, and was placed in the 4m chase on this card in 2017; 0-4 over hurdles since joining George Bewley; handicap mark in free-fall.

15/8

Driven out to score at odds of 16/1 on his return to the care of Jennie Candlish at Ayr on Saturday (3m, soft); reverts to chasing (0-9) off a broadly similar mark; more than capable of playing a hand if in the same fettle.

16/1

Stablemate of Katalystic; sits on a winnable mark, albeit his performances of late haven't suggested that his turn is anywhere near arriving; seemingly much better on a sound surface.

Betting

Forecast

The Horsechesnut (15/8), Mcginty's Dream (3/1), Imperial Prince (10/3), Sevenballs Of Fire (7/1), Katalystic (11/1), Arizona Bound (16/1)

Verdict

A trappy-looking contest. Mcginty's Dream is fully effective around Hexham and will relish the heavy ground and further rainfall which is forecast ahead of racing, but he's now a whopping 24lb higher than when scoring over this C&D in December. On the other hand the likes of Sevenballs Of Fire (returns to chasing) and Saturday's Ayr hurdles winner THE HORSECHESNUT are more generously weighted. The maiden Imperial Prince is another worthy of consideration.
