40/1

On a roll with a four-timer at Cartmel last summer but not seen since pulled up with a blood vessel at Stratford in September and may not get his own way in front.

Made all in three starts over C&D before biting off more than he could chew at Cheltenham. This track clearly suits and likely to have had this as a target for a while.

Likes this fast ground and ran right up to his best when third in Scottish Champion Hurdle last week. Will get the strong pace he likes and should play a prominent part.

7/1

Rapid improvement on fast ground last summer and suited by sharp tracks. Another who should get the strong pace he likes and if ready to roll after a six months break should be a player.

Huntingdon win under this rider in November but not seen since tame effort over Christmas and more exposed than her rivals today.

Unsuited by rain softened ground at Aintree last time but Kempton second prior on fast ground puts him in the mix and worth bearing in mind on ground that will suit.

Off a 1lb lower mark than when scoring at Warwick last May but regularly beaten since and needs to come back to his peak form after a break.

Work to do when falling two out at Stratford last time and hasn't quite shown the pick of his Irish form since joining this yard.

Massive improver since blinkers added this spring, following his comfortable Ascot win with smooth success at Exeter. Further 8lb rise fully deserved and has a turn of foot. Sneaks in here off a low weight.

Betting

Forecast

Brandon Castle (9/4), Legal History (11/4), Equus Amadeus (4/1), Leapaway (7/1), Baddesley Knight (8/1), Fiesole (10/1), Beat The Judge (12/1), Michael's Mount (12/1), Mister Universum (16/1), Mystic Sky (25/1), Beltor (25/1), All Yours (33/1), Wells De Lune (40/1)

Verdict

A cracking handicap for this good prize and LEGAL HISTORY has really taken off since blinkers were fitted and can complete the hat-trick.. In a race with many dangers Brandon Castle looks sure to give it a good go from the front while Equus Amadeus has to be feared after his fine run at Ayr last week.
