612-0OR: 127
10/1

Winner of two novice hurdles last year he shaped well on his handicap debut with a mark such as this not looking beyond him. Pulled up when last seen having looked amiss in a Cheltenham handicap he's on the comeback trail now after a break.

50/1

Winner of three races over obstacles when trained in France; best effort coming when beaten 12L in Group 3 chase at Auteuil last October over 2m6f. Raced mainly on soft ground his last effort was poor (November 2018); now makes stable\GB debut.

33/1

Returning from a long absence after winning a handicap chase over 3m1f here when last seen off a 2lb higher mark (won here five times). Not seen over hurdles since February 2015 (outclassed); sure to need this run and find these too speedy.

25/1

Won a heavy ground novice hurdle on his second start over timber; defied a penalty to add another at Towcester (similar conditions early last year). Not really taken to fences in four starts; back hurdling making his handicap debut in this sphere.

711-11OR: 124
9/1

Fairly useful sort on the Flat who has yet to really live up to that level over hurdles his last two efforts indicating that he's not that well handicapped over hurdles. Blinkers now tried (first-time) in a bid to find some progress; limited appeal.

711-11OR: 124D
4/1

Back to form when last seen emulating the top-class run from his only start last season (third in the Silver Trophy). Trip (3m) appeared to suit last time (travels well); looks one to be interested in again off this mark; very much on the shortlist.

20/1

Below form over fences last time (yet to convince in that sphere) and quickly returned to hurdles although he hardly been at the top of his game in that discipline either. Ought to be able to make an impact off this mark but doubts are not far away.

711-9OR: 122CD
4/1

Only win so far came in this race last year off a 9lb lower mark but only seen five times since then via two wind surgeries. The latest work appeared to have a positive effect (runner-up at Market Rasen); in with a chance of retaining his title.

12/1

Dual C&D winner although it's debateable how much he achieved winning those two small fields affairs in 2017. Had two lengthy breaks since then; sent chasing of late although neither start was particularly likeable; temperament open to question.

511-8OR: 121C
8/1

Bumper\novice hurdle winner who shaped better than his final position last time having had to make a sharp move into contention; also blundered late on. That Exeter run off 1lb more signalled he's capable of winning this if he stays this extra 3f.

1111-2OR: 115
25/1

Fair handicap hurdler who was last successful at his favourite course (Taunton) without his usual rider taking advantage of a much-reduced mark. He's run with credit since then but the few pounds he's nudged up for his win have made life tough again.

711-2OR: 115
40/1

Ex-Irish hurdler (was with Willie Mullins) who won a novice hurdle on his final start for that yard. Has shown very little for his current yard including when tried over fences; again ran poorly when last seen back over hurdles; little expected.

610-13OR: 112D
16/1

Capable of some fair form over hurdles; opened his account this year with a big-priced win at Hereford (2m7f, good) off 6lb lower. Failed to match that form until his latest run (first-time blinkers) just failing to make all at Bangor; one to note.

510-2OR: 101
7/2

Form so far under Rules is only modest but he's shown more upped in trip and now makes his GB\stable\handicap debut. Trainer has a good record with such types so any market confidence should be noted off what looks a workable mark.

Betting

Forecast

Stubborn Logic (7/2), The Sweeney (4/1), Peak To Peak (4/1), Ebony Gale (8/1), Champagne Champ (9/1), Serosevsky (10/1), San Satiro (12/1), Samson's Reach (16/1), Show On The Road (20/1), Here's Herbie (25/1), Jurby (25/1), Gentleman Jon (33/1), Caro Des Flos (40/1), Dieu Vivant (50/1)

Verdict

The past two winners of this race return for another try at winning this with The Sweeney much preferred to San Satiro in that particular sideshow, the former having run well last time out but faces a stiffer task than winning this last year off a 9lb higher mark. PEAK TO PEAK looked back to near his best last time at Ascot finishing a close third and matching some of his best form. Samson’s Reach looks as though he enters the equation on the basis of his last run at Bangor although he may find this crowd harder to dominate. Ebony Gale is certainly up to winning something like this under a more measured ride and the market will give a big clue as to the chance of Stubborn Logic.
