1012-6OR: 120D
5/4

Prolific point-to-point winner who showed his best form (after a breathing op) in this sphere when winning by 26L from Bletchley Castle at Taunton last time. Respected once more.

33/1

Won a handicap at Cheltenham for Dan Skelton back in October but has been very disappointing since, failing to beat another rival in four starts. Remains easy to oppose.

1012-6OR: 137D
4/1

Smart staying chaser at his best, although on the downgrade last season. Disappointing despite finishing second in a hunter chase at Fontwell last month, and needs to step up markedly now.

1011-12OR: 110
33/1

Out of form for Ben Pauling in 2017/18, and while he has been successful in a point-to-point, that came in 2013, and he has been well beaten in his last two runs in that arena.

7/1

Rated 140 when runner-up in blinkers at Wincanton in October 2017, and obvious claims on that run, but absent until finishing a modest third on hunter bow at Doncaster last month. Should be straighter for that run.

5/2

Veteran who can go well fresh and is the type to take well to this new discipline, for all he was a declining force in handicaps last season.

Betting

Forecast

Master Baker (5/4), Village Vic (5/2), Southfield Vic (4/1), Forgotten Gold (7/1), Sam Red (33/1), Cadeau George (33/1)

Verdict

VILLAGE VIC struggled from the top of the handicap in valuable events last season, but he appeals as the type to get a new lease of life as a hunter chaser, and he is taken to make the most of the weight he receives from Master Baker. Forgotten Gold was well held after a long absence last time, but should do better with that behind him.
