33/1

Front runner who was in tremendous form last summer rattling off a four-timer at his beloved Cartmel, but well below that form in two comeback runs and second in a seller last time when well favoured at the weights. Bit to prove now.

Has generally struggled for form since winning twice in autumn of 2017 and disappointing both runs when last seen late last year. Won following a break in the past but hard to be sure what he's capable of at present.

1m winner on the AW in a light Flat career. Won on Huntingdon debut over hurdles but apart from a second at Wincanton, hasn't really built on that and now tries a trip beyond the minimum for the first time.

Good ground hat-trick last summer included a win here. Not so good in Listed company on soft when last seen in December but respected back on this ground for in-form yard.

Both wins were gained in France in 2017 and probably ran his best race in this country when fourth at Haydock (2m) last time having failed to stay 2m4f at Cheltenham. This intermediate trip should be ideal.

Four wins on the Flat, but having sprang a 20/1 shock on debut over hurdles in February he hasn't really built on that including on handicap debut at Sandown last month.

Best efforts in Ireland on a sound surface and ran with credit on second start for this at Chepstow in February. Can be forgiven latest run when he lost a shoe and this trip should be ideal.

Pair of Bumper wins last summer and also two wins over hurdles this season, but very disappointing when 7/2 favourite at Cheltenham last month and has to prove himself at this trip.

Good ground win at Uttoxeter a year ago and good efforts when runner-up on three of his five runs since on softer ground. From a yard enjoying a good run and should make his presence felt.

Two wins over further in 2017 but pulled up lame when last seen that summer and needs to bounce back after long absence at a trip likely short of his best.

2m 5f winner at Warwick in November and raced over further since. Let down by his jumping at Ascot on latest and has to prove this drop in distance is what he wants.

Claims on his fourth in hot Ascot handicap on penultimate start but below that at Fakenham. Could improve for this first run beyond the minimum trip .

Returns to a track he has such a good record at (6-17) and was successful twice last summer. Should be cherry ripe after two runs off a break last month and interesting here with excellent claimer booked.

Betting

Forecast

Casa Tall (10/3), Nelson's Touch (11/2), Passing Call (13/2), Heatstroke (15/2), Bhutan (9/1), Airton (9/1), Laughing Luis (10/1), Bold Reason (14/1), Unblinking (14/1), Dashing Oscar (20/1), Tamarillo Grove (25/1), Wells De Lune (33/1), Doctor Look Here (66/1)

Verdict

PASSING CALL found Listed class beyond her when last seen but back in handicap company on ground she likes, is worth siding with. Despite his advancing years Tamarillo Grove must be respected on his favourite venue while Casa Tall completes the short list.
