811-12OR: 110CD
11/4

His last win came over hurdles from a 12lb higher mark at Huntingdon (2m, good to soft) in November 2017; outclassed on his sole start over fences in November 2018, he returns to a track which clearly suits; others preferred.

1311-12OR: 110CD
7/1

Rolled back the years when posting a solid front-running shift to beat Rainy Day Dylan by 7L over C&D (good to soft) one month ago; 5lb higher and faces competition for the lead; should still take some stopping if in the same fettle.

811-11OR: 109D
15/2

Game winner on his return to action at Bangor (2m4f+, good to soft) in November; has had some limited excuses since (didn't appear to stay 3m); faces competition for the lead from the veteran Brave Spartacus and the maiden Picknick Park.

1011-7OR: 105
9/2

Just 2lb higher than when winning at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in January 2018; hasn't quite reached peak form so far this season, finishing in the ruck at Uttoxeter in November; not totally discounted if revitalised from a 115-day break.

1111-6OR: 104
9/1

Veteran who is slowly inching his way back down the weights to a more competitive looking handicap mark; stronger over the minimum trip (up to 2m1f) and would almost certainly appreciate any further rain - not in the forecast.

710-2OR: 86
2/1

15-race maiden with stacks of Market Rasen experience (has run at this track on eleven previous occasions); went down fighting after tussling for the lead throughout on just his second start over fences here (2m1f+) last month.

Betting

Forecast

Picknick Park (2/1), Star Foot (11/4), Zayfire Aramis (9/2), Brave Spartacus (7/1), Thyne For Gold (15/2), Uno Valoroso (9/1)

Verdict

BRAVE SPARTACUS rolled back the years when making all over this C&D last month to record an eleventh career success. Despite a subsequent 5lb rise in the weights and the fact that he's likely to face increased competition for the lead from the likes of Thyne For Gold and the maiden Picknick Park, his class can still come brimming to the fore in a very winnable-looking contest.
  1. Brave Spartacus
