811-12OR: 147BF
9/2

Three wins this season, all in small fields, but improvement seems to have stalled in recent starts and in truth, he's been a bit disappointing. Plenty on off this mark, even though he will have his ground.

Has some good handicap form to his name and was fancied to run well in the Scottish National on Saturday before being declared a late non-runner. Conditions to suit again here and looks a big player.

Loves quick ground, so latest poor effort at Newbury easily overlooked on the soft ground, but still looks handicapped to the hilt and this trip a total unknown. Big plus is the yard form, which is excellent.

Lovely chasing type that has made a good start to his career over the bigger obstacles, and although beaten at Ludlow last time it was still a career best. Should stay this far and looks one of the more interesting ones.

8/1

Does nothing but stay, as his fifth in the Midlands National on his latest start shows, and had previously come good over 30f at Exeter the time before. Even this may not be enough of a test for him, and others are preferred.

Well into the veteran stage now, race effectively over for him in the Kim Muir when he missed the break (likes to dominate) and although he has stacks of excellent form here, this ground likely to be too quick for him.

Looks on a very dangerous mark these days, back to form when just denied at Fakenham two starts back and Topham run best forgiven as ground too soft. Yard could be in better form, but still interesting here.

Had the race in the bag when falling at the last at Leicester last time out, gets a 5lb rise for that and steps back up in trip here, so chances are he needs a bit more.

Went close at Ffos Las last July but too many moderate efforts since then and is coming back off an absence here. Makes only minimal appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Dingo Dollar (5/2), Rocky's Treasure (9/2), Allelu Alleluia (5/1), Perfect Candidate (13/2), Dawson City (8/1), Cobra De Mai (17/2), Somewhere To Be (14/1), Marquis Of Carabas (20/1), Henryville (20/1)

Verdict

Rocky's Treasure and Dingo Dollar will ensure there's no hanging around and the latter will hold a big chance if he can shake them off in the first mile. But that looks unlikely and it may be set up for something to come from off the pace. HENRYVILLE finally has his ground, which he didn't in the Topham last time out, and he's simply too well handicapped to ignore at present. He can take this at the expense of Allelu Alleluia , who will undoubtedly win more races and looks a big danger here too.
