6/4

Chased home a subsequent winner over C&D last month and that continued his run of consistent efforts so no reason why he shouldn't play a part in this similar contest.

11/4

Fulfilling his Bumper potential now and off the mark over hurdles at Exeter last month. The extra 3f here look sure to suit and as a lightly raced type should have more to come.

Not in the same form when last seen that he was in during the autumn but excellent claimer now takes over. Wants fast ground so any rain would not be welcome.

3/1

Completed hat-trick last summer and in too deep when tailed off third here when last seen in February. This more realistic task and no surprise should he bounce back.

810-9OR: 110CD
9/1

Two soft ground wins in April last year but has winning form on this faster surface from earlier in his career. November run at Sandown though was his only run in last 12 months which is a bit of a concern.

Won a 0-100 contest at Fontwell in August but not in the same form two runs since and this is a much tougher contest in which to bounce back.

Betting

Forecast

Mellow Ben (6/4), Melekhov (11/4), Royal Hall (3/1), Ramore Will (9/1), Mick Thonic (12/1), Mr Fickle (28/1)

Verdict

In the hope that the extra trip brings about further improvement MELEKHOV can maintain his progress by following up his Taunton win last month at the main expense of top weight Mellow Ben who looks the pick of Chris Gordon's pair. Local runner Royal Hall represents an in form yard and completes the short list.
  1. Melekhov
