14/1

Won twice over C&D over fences although also failed to complete in six of his 12 chases. Unplaced in three previous hurdle races although none of them since 2017. Somewhat unknown here then but hurdles may help his often shoddy jumping.

Best efforts have come at Hereford. Quietly fancied on his first two starts in handicaps but failed dramatically. Sixth at Chepstow latest post wind surgery a little more like it and interesting now upped to 3m.

Point-to-point winner on yielding ground in March last year. Best effort in four hurdles starts came when fourth over 2m4f at Sedgefield penultimately. Beaten out of sight since though in a handicap and will have to improve plenty for longer trip.

Point-to-point winner but has shown little in five starts so far and can only be watched until showing a bit more spark.

27-race maiden placed for the first time in her career two starts back at Newcastle when second but flopped again next at Bangor. New trip here but one she's hinted she may appreciate. Still risky enough though.

5/1

Beaten a long way on first four hurdles starts, but fared better on second handicap start when third to Save The Pennies at Huntingdon. Fancied to build on that next over the same C&D he was a major disappointment. Better expected here.

Unplaced in seven starts so far over hurdles although latest fifth of 12 here (beaten 26L was a slight improvement). Falls another 5lb in a pretty woeful race.

610-8OR: 80
4/1

Unplaced in eight and while she didn't stay 3m3f penultimately she looked well worth a go at 3m latest when a running on fourth here over 2m4½f. Gets a further 1lb back and looks one of the most likely sorts.

Pulled up in all three of his hurdle races since second of three on debut. Wind operation will have to work something close to a miracle here.

Placed in last two races at Market Rasen but they came way back in summer 2017. After almost two years off he is too risky a proposition.

Betting

Forecast

Loud As Lions (9/4), Taras Day (4/1), My Turgeon (5/1), Robyndzone (8/1), Seapoint (9/1), Corner Creek (14/1), Barnay (18/1), Devito'sredrobin (20/1), Justthegrey (22/1), That Man Of Mine (50/1)

Verdict

A really weak race this and it looks worth chancing recent course fourth TARAS DAY who looked sure to appreciate a step up to 3m there. Also likely to be better over this trip is Loud As Lions. Dual C&D chase winner Corner Creek should be better suited by hurdles with his jumping over fences often his downfall.
