711-12OR: 91BF
4/1

Has finished in the runner-up berth on three of his four starts over fences (2m-2m5f+) and it can surely only be a matter of time before he breaks his career duck; the application of first-time cheekpieces could serve to sharpen his focus.

711-10OR: 89
4/1

Winner off a 6lb lower mark at Kelso (2m5f+, good to soft) on her penultimate start; no extra on the run-in when fourth to Reverse The Charge over C&D latest (second and third have both won since); realistic contender.

Hasn't show much in the way of sparkle under rules for Donald McCain (0-5), but was placed in a 3m PTP for Colin Bowe in May 2018; watching brief advised on rules chasing debut.

811-8OR: 87
14/1

PTP winner (May 2017); has struggled under rules for the Glenfarg-based trainer Lucy Normille; well out of his depth on rules chasing debut (novices') over C&D earlier this month.

11/4

Far from convincing over fences (0-12) and has a poor overall win record (1-25); scrambled home when beating Apachee Prince by a neck in a 2m4f Class 5 handicap hurdle here in August 2017.

1010-11OR: 76
20/1

Veteran, a winner of nine of his 80 career starts; massively on the downgrade over the course of the past 12-15 months or so (has tumbled in the weights); arriving very late to the chasing game (debut).

Brought the sequence to 37-races without a win when finishing a keeping on fourth to Golden Town at Sedgefield last week (2m1f Class 5 handicap hurdle); held no chance whatsoever at the weights on his sole previous attempt over fences.

710-7OR: 72WS
5/1

Just held when beaten a neck by Maureen's Star at Perth (3m novices' handicap hurdle) in July 2018; disappointing since returning form wind surgery (often prominent in the betting); plenty to prove on second start over fences.

910-5OR: 70
6/1

Dual PTP winner in 2017 (for Clive Storey); 0-14 under rules, lacked fluency when finishing last of three to Sleep Easy on chasing debut at Kelso (2m5f+); this race is a more realistic target, yet can still be expected to struggle.

Betting

Forecast

Flying Jack (11/4), Mrs Vonn (4/1), Truckers Tangle (4/1), Mission Trio (5/1), Kitty Fisher (6/1), Kisumu (7/1), Call Me (14/1), Hartside (20/1), Capmonfor (20/1)

Verdict

The focus should be exclusively on those towards the top-end of the handicap. Mrs Vonn was a winner at Kelso on her penultimate start, and ran reasonably well since when finishing fourth to Reverse The Charge off her revised mark over this C&D (form is working out well). However, the frustrating TRUCKERS TANGLE won't have many better winning opportunities than this race, so assuming that the application of cheekpieces serves to sharpen his focus even a fraction, then the prize is likely to be heading back south to the Somerset base of trainer Alex Dunn (1-5; 20% at Hexham prior to tonight's action).
