50/1

Well held in both starts since returning from a long break. Possible he needed those outings but only a strong betting move would inspire confidence to get involved this time.

8/1

A shade of the horse who twice finished very close in the Foxhunters Chase at Aintree when he could manage no better than seventh of eight at Haydock on his return last month. Dangerous to rule out but needs to have come on a lot for that outing.

5/4

Usually needs a run so will have benefited from his reappearance at Kelso last month. Finished ninth in the Foxhunters last season and would blitz this lot if able to reproduce that effort now his fitness is topped up.

A dual winner for Paul Nicholls under rules but has yet to impress since switching to this level. Others make more appeal.

10/1

Has solid form - under rules - on his old CV and also hard to beat since dropping into point-to-points. Been off for a long while now though and reasonable to assume he's strip fitter for the outing. (Has win after a break but age now a factor.

16/1

Won five times when with Noel Meade in Ireland but has been found wanting in three starts for his current yard. Has ability but looks risky all the same.

9/4

Thrived in point-to-points lately and regulation fences not a problem for the gelding either. Good chance on the pick of his efforts but best form when wearing headgear so interesting see that the blinkers are left off this time.

Betting

Forecast

Sir Jack Yeats (5/4), Zeroeshadesofgrey (9/4), Connetable (5/1), Dineur (8/1), Silvergrove (10/1), Tulsa Jack (16/1), Boher Call (50/1)

Verdict

On past form SIR JACK YEATS edges the vote as the one to side with here. He is expected to strip a lot fitter after his reappearance run at Kelso and will be hard to overhaul if puts in anything like the effort which saw him finish ninth in the Foxhunters at Aintree last year. Dineur has also got Liverpool form which reads very well and he appeals as a more adventurous option. Zeroeshadesofgrey has done well in point-to-points and will also be thereabout if he can up the ante back over regulation fences. Silvergrove has a long absence to overcome but appeals as the best of the rest.
