4/1

Left Chris Grant after running in a seller at Wetherby (2m3f+) in April; tailed-off on recent stable debut and looking increasingly unlikely that she'll ever fulfil her early career promise; eased in the weights; blinkers now applied.

Any promise that he has shown in bumpers/novice hurdles has been in limited supply with his second at Musselburgh on his hurdling debut yet to be backed up; the switch to handicaps may eke out some improvement (not guaranteed); newly hooded.

711-2OR: 88
2/1

13-race maiden, although considered very unlucky not to win at Catterick (3m1f+) on New Year's Day; back from a break with a reasonable effort at Wetherby (again under Emma Smith-Chaston); stablemate of Witness.

610-13OR: 85
11/8

Still seeking that elusive first success (0-10) but in all fairness is improving at a lowly-level; was racing from out of the handicap when beaten 2½L by Emerald Chieftain at Kelso (2m6f, good) a fortnight ago; place prospects.

Eight-race maiden who is yet to remotely threaten to trouble the judge; badly hampered when unseating her rider between obstacles when upped to 3m at Wetherby (100/1) six-weeks ago.

10/1

Veteran; stayed on well from the last to beat Lawtop Legend by 8L in this race in 2018 (11/2); able to compete from an identical handicap mark (76) this time around, but beginning to show signs that age is slowly catching up with him.

Verdict

Micky Hammond has a very strong hand in the finale courtesy of the Billy Garritty ridden WITNESS and the Emma-Smith Chaston ridden It's All About Me. However, such was the manner in which the selection readily disposed of his rivals when taking an identical C&D conditional jockey's handicap hurdle, he's confidently expected to make light of a 6lb rise in the weights and double up in the hands of a promising young rider. Of the remainder, Farlam King holds realistic place claims having shown signs of improvement (at a lowly-level) of late.
