811-13OR: 101BFD
16/1

Won off 2lb lower mark at Musselburgh in February but disappointed when favourite and only fourth there last time. Ran moderately only prveious visit here so may again find a few too good under top weight.

Poor form in France and generally disappointing in three starts for current yard over hurdles off higher marks. Tries chasing in Britain for first time and wouldn't surprise were he to do better. Any market move would be well worth noting.

10-race maiden but put up best effort so far when runner-up at Musselburgh last time off 3lb lower mark. Not out of it if able to reproduce that level of performance.

Won three in France but yet to score in nine attempts this side of the Channel for current yard. Booked for second when taking very heavy fall at last here 20 days ago and will do well to bounce back from that shuddering tumble.

10-race maiden who showed little spark on return from absence when well beaten over hurdles at Market Rasen recently. May do better back over fences and connections respected, but needs to produce much more to figure.

Just 3-68 career recordand won three starts ago at Sedgefield over 3m2f. Stays well but is 5lb higher and has looked weighted to the hilt on last two starts.

Changed of tactics did the trick last time when scoring over C&D having been prominently ridden all the way. 5lb higher but should go well again now connections appear to have found the key to him.

8/1

Only win in 24 starts came here in 2m4f h'cap hurdle back in 2017. Was marginally in front when falling 2 out in 3m h'ap chase here a few months later so this undulating track clearly suits. Needs to produce his very best to figure though.

Last three wins have come here, including twice over C&D. Well beaten third behind Prince Dundee latest and will do well to bridge the gap on just 9lb better terms. Young rider's 10lb claim helps the cause though.

Has shown nothing in five starts undr Rules and connections reach for first time cheekpieces in the hope of encouraging a transformation. Looks outlassed on all known form.

18/1

Not the force of old having been a fair staying chaser three seasons ago. 48lb drop hasn't helped him back to the winners enclosure but undoubtedly well weighted if able to find a spark of his old form. Risky proposition.

Broke his duck last time out at the 22nd time of asking when comfortably scoring at Sedgefield (3m2f). 6lb higher now and has to prove that no fluke, but another good display is not out of the question off bottom weight.

Betting

Forecast

Prince Dundee (15/8), Flying Jack (8/1), Apache Pilot (17/2), Scorpo (9/1), Monsieur Bagot (10/1), Square Viviani (10/1), Allez Cool (12/1), Exit To Where (14/1), For Jim (16/1), So Satisfied (16/1), Alto Des Mottes (18/1), Shaiyzar (18/1), Quizzacle Nomad (25/1)

Verdict

ALLEZ COOL caught the eye last time runnng well after a long break and off a 4lb lower mark looks worth chancing in a race of mainly inconsistent performers. Exit To Where is a potentially improver, and Scorpo finally got off the mark last time and may have turned over a new leaf. Prince Dundee also won well last time out and a repeat performance could be on the cards, while Flying Jack and Monseiur Bagot may prove best of the rest.
