812-0OR: 106D
11/4

Took advantage of handicap mark to score over just shy of 3m at Chepstow last month, no certainty to run as well a second time but certainly entitled to go well again from this mark.

20/1

Won a maiden hurdle for Nicky Henderson once upon a time, but was well beaten in recent runs at Warwick and Market Rasen on his return from an absence of 931-days and has plenty still to prove as a result. Eased 7lb here.

Has just the sole win on her CV after 19 starts, and that was when allowed an uncontested lead over fences at Southwell (3m) in December; finished 4½L fourth to Tikk Tock Boom on her return to hurdles at Hereford (3m1f) last month and could go well.

Useful frontrunner when trained by Martin Keighley, though a while since his best has been seen now. Shaped marginally better over fences here last June for this trainer, on a nice mark should be on song returning to hurdles.

6/1

Finished runner-up over 2m in a handicap hurdle at Chepstow (good-to-soft) in November. Decent effort when a close sixth over 2m3f at Warwick (good-to-soft) subsequently. Brought dearly early doors since at Hereford. Up in trip, considered.

Improved to win twice in quick succession in December, but lost his way again since and really needs the returning headgear to have a positive effect.

Teenager, can be given some hope from this mark based on last season's form, but yet to suggest another win is looming so far this term.

Good second last time at Sedgefield behind an improving sort, can be in the frame here with a repeat effort and possible capable of better.

1010-1OR: 79CD
28/1

C&D winner in 2017 but raced only five times since (all over fences) and nothing positive to report in those efforts. Big ask back from layoff/returned to hurdles.

Irish point-to-point winner, not able to show any positive form in rules career to date and makes little appeal despite latest relief from the handicapper.

Betting

Forecast

Late Shipment (11/4), Boher Lad (7/2), Silent Steps (11/2), Head Lad (6/1), Red Admirable (17/2), Mauna Kea (10/1), Windy Bottom (10/1), Act Alone (20/1), Culm Counsellor (28/1), Johnny Og (33/1)

Verdict

Late Shipment scored last time at Chepstow and can be given a chance from this revised mark but he's not exactly a reliable performer and has struggled before to gain any consistency. On that basis a chance is given to SILENT STEPS, who finished a decent fourth at Hereford last time and has gone close off higher marks in the past. Boher Lad, second at Sedgefield and Head Lad can also be shortlisted upped in distance for what is a weak race.
