511-7OR: D
6/4

Won at Leicester in a very pleasing manner in January, making a mockery of his 20/1 starting price. The runner up has been in fair form since, so the form has a solid feel. Worth considering.

Modest pedigree and yard very quiet. Probably best watched on racecourse debut.

711-1OR:

Plenty of experience and won twice on the AW (12.5f) at Newcastle for Alan Swinbank. Hurdles form just modest from two outings. Has a bit to find.

Shaping with plenty of promise and not disgraced latest when third of twelve on his return from wind surgery latest. More to come and no issue with the trip. Worth considering.

Betting

Forecast

Hideaway Vic (8/11), The Captains Inn (6/4), Back On The Lash (9/4), Risky Gold (10/1), Codeshare (33/1), Click And Collect (50/1)

Verdict

THE CAPTAINS INN won well at Leicester in January and, with that form working out well, the gelding looks one to keep faith with despite his 7lb penalty for that win. Hideaway Vic is another progressive type that has more to offer and edges out the penalised Back On The Lash as the best alternative.
