9/4

Losing run stretches back three years and normally seen over hurdles these days but does return to fences off a 10lb lower mark than when last over them in December so no doubt he's well treated if putting best foot forward.

Sprang a surprise when winning this a year ago and 4lb higher today. Would have followed good Wetherby second with another placed effort but for unseating at the last here recently so clearly in good heart.

Rare run away from Musselburgh these days but placed twice at this venue last year. Good attitude when scoring twice in February and although just below that form since, may have more to offer.

Not at best last season and better on soft, but comes from a yard in good form and has had wind operation since last seen so not dismissed.

Won again at his beloved Hexham earlier in the month and clearly in good nick but work to do to confirm Wetherby placings with Blue Kascade at the revised weights today.

Short head win over 2m4f here in September. Does stay this far and disappointing run when pulled up last time rare poor effort so could easily bounce back

Betting

Forecast

Katgary (9/4), Craiganboy (11/4), Bafana Blue (3/1), Halo Moon (4/1), Orioninverness (5/1), Elmono (7/1), Blue Kascade (8/1), Grove Silver (16/1)

Verdict

BLUE KASCADE has shown himself in good form of late and must have every chance of repeating his win in this a year ago. Bafana Blue scored in game style at Hexham recently but at the weights may struggle to confirm earlier form with the selection. Halo Moon could bounce back from his wind operation and completes the short list.
