1/2

Hacked up here last month over 2m4f giving impression he has plenty of ability. Drops back in trip this time and is penalised but should take plenty of beating if in similar form.

Attracted market support and stayed on well to score at Sedgefield last time out, a big improvement on previous efforts. Going the right way and another good show is anticipated.

Hasn't run for 11 months and best effort last term came on heavy ground. Likely to find ground plenty lively enough over this trip and will do well to figure where it matters most.

Fairly modest form in five starts so far. Best effort came here in bumper last term and wasn't disgraced over timber at Market Rasen last time. Would be off more interest in a handicap.

First ever runner at this track for trainer who has been in good form in recent weeks. Phoenix Reach gelding makes belated racecourse debut and is related to a number of winners. Worth a market check.

9/4

Fair bumper form includes 10-length success at this track on second start in October. Decent first run over timber last month when staying-on third at Market Rasen and not out of this if tasking another step forward.

Moderate maiden pont-to-pointer but not completely disgraced at long odds on Rules bow at Wetherby a few weeks ago. Needs to improve considerably though to figure on these terms.

Runner-up in bumpers at Sedgefield and Newcastle last spring but hasn't taken to hurdling nad has pulled up on both starts so far. Very hard to fancy.

Shown nothing in a bumper and a hurdle to date and was pulled up on hurdles bow last time. Returns from wind operation and wears first time tongue-tie but cannot be recommended despite representing good yard.

Has failed to beat a horse in last four starts and hasn't completed in last three. Appears to be of very little account and just finishing the race will be a victory of sorts for this mare.

Showed very little in two bumpers and fell at the 1st at Kelso last week on hurdles debut. Cery hard to enthuse over.

Shirocco filly out of fair mare who was a winning hurdler. Looked awkward on debut and eventually refused when detached at 5th flight. Looks up against it after that inauspicious start.

Betting

Forecast

Glinger Flame (1/2), Mr Scrumpy (9/4), Honourary Gift (13/2), Alfiboy (25/1), Bobndave (33/1), Sixties Star (66/1), Plan Of Escape (66/1), Super Mac (66/1), Likeamonkey (66/1), Express Des Mottes (100/1), Sailing Away (250/1), Western Supernova (250/1), My Shirocco (250/1)

Verdict

GLINGER FLAME should have no problem dropping back to this minimum trip having travelled like a decent horse over further when bolting up here last time. He represents the combination responsible for Saturday's Scottish National winner. Honourary Gift improved to win at Sedgefiled and should make a race of it, while Mr Scrumpy hinted he could win a race or two with a good third on debut at Market Rasem recently. There aren't too many other to enthuse over, but there could be a little better to come from Alfiboy.
