712-2OR: 102BF
11/4

Beaten favourite on chasing debut at Carlisle (2m4½f, good), indicating that he'd benefit from a step up in trip in finishing a staying on second to Roll Of Thunder; questionable as to whether or not he merited a 3lb rise; player.

1311-12OR: 98
12/1

Veteran; 14-race maiden over fences (has finished runner up on five occasions); easing in the weights and that's a help, although was never travelling when pulled up at Haydock (2m7f) 56-days ago; requires plenty of cut in the ground.

1211-12OR: 98D
20/1

Best on a sound surface (good); ultra-consistent since returning to the track in early 2018 (42123152); 2lb higher than when beaten just over 3L by the admirable 15yo course specialist See Double You at Hexham (3m) in September 2018; off since.

811-4OR: 90
8/1

Struggled to make his mark over hurdles (0-7) and far from the most proficient over fences either (0-3); 3lb lower than when a well beaten eighth of ten to Well Joey at Hexham (2m4f, good to soft).

1010-10OR: 82
33/1

Raced sparingly; has shown little since beating a longstanding bone-idle maiden by a nose at Newcastle (2m4f, soft) in January 2017; handicap mark easing, albeit makes precious little appeal.

610-5OR: 77D
4/5

Won for the first time under rules when given a patient ride by Tom Buckley in a 3m CJ's handicap at Warwick on Saturday (3m, good); escapes a penalty; well ahead of the handicapper in a weak race; can she back up?

1110-0OR: 71
16/1

35-race maiden (0-18 over fences); reserves his 'better efforts' for this track, beaten just over 2L by Havana Jack in this race 12-months ago; unlikely that he'll be strong enough to buck the winless sequence tonight.

1110-0OR: 68D
25/1

0-30 over fences and competes from outside of the handicap proper; not difficult to dismiss with haste; look elsewhere with confidence.

Betting

Forecast

The Boola Bee (4/5), Petite Ganache (11/4), Katalystic (8/1), Buffalo Ballet (12/1), Jackofhearts (16/1), Dun Faw Good (20/1), Top Cat Dj (25/1), Harleys Max (33/1)

Verdict

Nigel Hawke generally does well when sending his runners north to places like Carlisle and Hexham, and he also has a 20% strike-rate at Perth (2-10). His mare THE BOOLA BEE will undoubtedly prove strong in the market escaping a penalty for Saturday's Conditional Jockeys' win at Warwick (3m). She needs to definitively prove that she can back up that form, but ought to be difficult to beat if doing so. Obvious alternatives would include the Nicky Richards-trained Petite Ganache and the returning good-ground specialist Dun Faw Good.
