11/10

Winner of six of his last seven starts including in two novice chases this spring. Came home 14L clear of his rivals over an extended 1m7f at Southwell (good) last time out and likely to prove hard to beat on handicap debut.

First start since wind surgery when finishing 28L fifth in a 2m handicap chase at Perth (good) last month. Interesting runner off a mark 2lb higher than when winning at Worcester (good) last June.

Improving with racing since returning from a break and beaten 16L when fourth at Perth (2m, good) last time out. Likely more needed if he is to take this contest however.

Promising fifth in a 2m1f handicap hurdle at Cheltenham (good) on stable debut last month. Market support would be notable with a top jockey booked to ride on handicap debut over fences.

Betting

Forecast

Hatcher (11/10), Valseur Du Granval (9/2), Capital Force (5/1), Theflyingportrait (8/1), Capitoul (8/1), Admiral's Secret (9/1), Spock (66/1)

Verdict

Top weight HATCHER can make a winning handicap debut by taking this small field chase contest. The selection represents a top yard and he is taken to see off his rivals here with Valseur Du Grandval, an easy winner here last time out capable of chasing him home. Third place can go to Capital Force who is making his handicap debut.
