9/4

Top Irish yard has 20% strike rate at this track. Only two hurdles wins have come on heavy ground but has form on better surface. Decent sixth last time in Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys Hurdle at Cheltenham.

Improving handicap hurdler who won at Plumpton and Market Rasen this winter then excellent second in listed Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton last time out. Up 5lb but is going the right way.

Two wins at Wetherby earlier in the campaign but has looked in the handicapper's grip on last three starts since moving up to 3m. Drop back in trip may hepo but more needed here.

7/2

Fair sort but has appeared handicapped to the hilt for more than a season and was beaten when unseating at final flight in Pertemps Hurdle at Cheltenham Festival last time. Eased 2lb and represents fine team so not out of it.

14/1

Never sighted in Martin Pipe at Cheltenham last month on easy ground. Best form on sound surface so shoudl have conditions to suit. Previously won listed Lanzarote Hurdle in great style off 8lb lower mark than here.

Outclassed at Cheltenham Festival last time but had shaped well on two previous runs and is handicapped top be in the mix if things go his way.

10/1

Beat Sky Khan at Kelso in January in good style before tiring close home at Kempton last time, weakening to finish fifth. May strip fitter this time and gets weight from most of his rivals.

14/1

Lost out to Sky Khan at Kelso in January on penultimate start but is a difficult horse to win with even when appearing favoured by conditions. Hasn't won for nearly four years so doesn't look the most obvious choice.

Betting

Forecast

Solomon Grey (2/1), Cartwright (9/4), Wait For Me (7/2), My Way (4/1), Colonial Dreams (13/2), Mahlervous (10/1), Sky Khan (14/1), Big Time Dancer (14/1), Wemyss Point (20/1), Sakhee's City (25/1)

Verdict

COLONIAL DREAMS disappointed last time but the sharp Taunton track may have found him out. Nicky Henderson's charge looks worth another chance and is fairly weighted on balance. In an open event the likes of Mahlervous, Big Time Dancer and Solomon Grey should all get involved, and you can't rule out top weight Cartwright who ran a solid race at Cheltenham last time out, or My Way, who was declared to run on Friday.
