1011-4OR:
40/1

38 rated middle distance performer on the Flat. Showed a bit more on second run over hurdles but tall order for this veteran to get off the mark here.

12/1

Regressive since winning maiden on Flat for Aidan O'Brien in 2016. Lost action on latest run in that sphere and hard to fancy on belated hurdling debut now.

54 rated on the Flat where he has yet to reach the frame in seven attempts. Needs this switch in codes to transform him.

511-4OR:
40/1

Regressive 26 race maiden on the Flat (rated just 40) and another who needs to better that form drastically now switched to hurdling.

Big chance if able to repeat promising C&D hurdling debut but has gone backwards since, including when handicapping last time. Plenty to prove now.

611-4OR: 121BF
1/4

Plenty of ability but is proving expensive to follow and failed to take good opportunity when turned over at 1/3 at Wincanton last time. Obvious claims on best form and at least has seemingly been found an even weaker contest.

410-13OR:
7/2

Some ability on the Flat at up to 1m4f and improved from hurdling debut when close sixth at Stratford on second start in this sphere. Won't need to progress from that to play a leading role here.

510-11OR:
50/1

50/1 on recent Bumper debut here but tailed off last of nine and will have to show plenty of improvement now hurdling.

Forecast

The Flying Sofa (1/4), Coal Stock (7/2), Mach One (5/1), Claudio Monteverdi (12/1), Duhr (25/1), Getaway Mission (25/1), Awesome Rock (40/1), Lesanti (40/1), Mrs Jack (50/1)

Verdict

A weak opener and while The Flying Sofa faces his easiest task to date, his Wincanton second last time was very disappointing and it may be worth siding with COAL STOCK to get the better of him as his latest effort at Stratford reads well in the context of this. Getaway Mission looks best of the rest.
