812-3OR: 137DWS

Effective form 2m4f-3m and suited to a sound surface. Beat a useful sort on penultimate start when sporting first-time blinkers. Has had wind surgery since a dismal run last time and reportedly has a mind of his own. Headgear removed.

711-8OR: 128CD

Looked a shade fortunate last time to escape from a string of errors as the departure of his main rivals clearly helped. Faces a harder test here so his jumping will need to have improved.

711-5OR: 125BFWS

Gets some relief from the handicapper having produced a poor display at Uttoxeter on first completed chase start. Open to improvement now switching to a right-handed track on first run following wind surgery.

611-1OR: 121D

Has finally got to grips with chasing and has secured confidence boosting successes in moderate company on his last two outings. This will be a much tougher test, but his mark remains attractive given he has run off much higher over hurdles.

711-0OR: 120

Improved after summer wind operation, winning at Sedgefield and Catterick late last year. Second at Taunton (2m2f, soft) last time and the third has won since. Mark unchanged and worth a try over this trip.

710-13OR: 119D

Won a poor Market Rasen class 3 hurdle last year off 5lb higher. Mixed form over fences this term and this is a much stronger race than last time when a one paced fourth. Plenty to prove.

Betting

Forecast

Gortroe Joe (2/1), Night Of Sin (11/4), The Bottom Bar (4/1), Midnight Chill (6/1), Allelu Alleluia (13/2), Otter Moon (10/1)

Verdict

NIGHT OF SIN is upped in class having won his last two but he was a 130+ rated hurdler a year ago and appeals as not only the best handicapped in the race but also as one of the safest jumpers. Gortroe Joe got away with mistakes to score last time, whilst The Bottom Bar may jump better this time now back on a right-handed track. Midnight Chill has been skilfully placed on his last four starts and the form of his latest start has received a boost since. Allelu Alleluia is something of an enigma but could make his presence felt if in the right mood, whilst Otter Moon looks to have plenty to do.
