912-1OR: 117D
7/4

Winning for the second time over fences when scoring by a nose in a 3m handicap chase at Wetherby (good) last month. Has to defy a 4lb rise if he is to follow-up in this event.

1111-12OR: 114D
14/1

Multiple winning chaser but finished a well held fifth of seven in a 3m handicap chase at Market Rasen (good-to-soft) when last in action back in November 2017. Probably best watched on return from a lengthy absence.

9/2

Put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him when finishing a good third over an extended 2m6f at Leicester (good) last time out. Races off a 3lb lower mark here and is a notable runner in this contest.

9/4

Early casualty in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m4f at Newbury (good-to-soft) earlier this month. Interesting contender back over fences having placed off a much higher hurdles mark in the past.

Successful by 14L in a 2m4f handicap chase on good-to-soft ground at Lingfield in November. Not reproduced that form in two subsequent starts however and others hold stronger claims.

Unplaced in all seven starts to date and pulled up the last twice including at Leicester (good-to-firm) last month on his return from a break.

Betting

Forecast

Minella For Me (7/4), Hit The Highway (9/4), Jarlath (9/2), Miss Yeats (8/1), Over The Arch (12/1), Ultimatum Du Roy (14/1)

Verdict

MINELLA FOR ME can record his third success over fences by taking this small field handicap event. The selection can defy top weight here at the chief expense of Jarlath who returned to form with a good third last time out while third can go to Hit The Highway who is making a return to fences having raced over hurdles in recent years.
