1
611-13OR: 116

Maiden who went closest he has to date when a neck second over 3m at Ludlow in January, and best not judged by poor effort in soft going at Sandown last time. Could bounce back on better ground.

511-12OR: 115

Has improved by degrees with each start, and far from disgraced when fifth of 16 to Jabulani in handicap over C&D last time. One for the shortlist.

Last RunWatch last race
3
811-11OR: 114D

Seems best away from testing ground and back to form when second of 7 to Fifty Shades in handicap at Fakenham last time. Will be competitive if running to a similar level here.

Last RunWatch last race
4
911-11OR: 114D

Let down by jumping over fences, and readily held on return to hurdles at Haydock in December. Returns from a break, and others more appealing.

Last RunWatch last race
5
711-11OR: 114D

Fairly treated on 2016/17 form, but no impact last season, and returns from a lengthy spell on the sidelines here. Needs a market check, but others have more pressing claims.

Last RunWatch last race
6
611-11OR: 114

Placed in the pointing field, and ran well when fourth to Debestyman on hurdles debut at Plumpton. Unsuited by drop in trip there last time, and an intriguing runner having gained a potentially lenient handicap mark on that basis.

Last RunWatch last race

811-10OR: 113

Well treated on the pick of his form, but rather in-and-out in last year or so, and makes little appeal on what he's shown this season.

Last RunWatch last race
8
611-9OR: 112

Talented but frustrating, and needed early reminders before finishing a creditable second to Little Boy Boru at Plumpton last time. Can get involved, but not one for maximum faith.

611-5OR: 108

Won really well under this rider at Warwick on New Years Eve. Not as good off this higher mark last twice, including over C&D, but possible cheekpieces will have a galvanising effect.

Avantgardist12(ex 7)
511-5OR: 101

Stays well on the Flat and much improved for the step up to 2m5f when winning a handicap hurdle at Warwick last time. Should improve further as his stamina is drawn out, and much respected on first try at 3m.

Last RunWatch last race
11
511-4OR: 107BF

Improved to win a soft-ground handicap hurdle at Fontwell in January, but raised 9lb for that, and not in the same form over that C&D last time. Opposable on balance.

Last RunWatch last race
12
1011-0OR: 103D

Won a weak handicap hurdle at Ludlow in November, and has struggled to make an impact off higher marks since. Slipping back down the weights, but others are more convincing.

Last RunWatch last race
13
710-11OR: 100

Best effort in qualifying runs when fifth at Warwick, but below that form last time, and opening mark demands improvement.

Betting

Forecast

Notachance (10/3), Avantgardist (5/1), Reallyradical (7/1), Three Star General (8/1), His Dream (9/1), Sliding Doors (9/1), Sackett (10/1), Desert Sensation (12/1), Agincourt Reef (16/1), Sheila's Fancy (16/1), Present Times (20/1), Dan Emmett (22/1), Mossing (28/1)

Verdict

REALLYRADICAL is hard to weight up, but he's been handicapped on two runs at shorter, and could well be underestimated now handicapping at a staying trip. Avantgardist is also unexposed granted a test of stamina, and heads the list of dangers with Notachance also shortlisted.
