1111-12OR:
66/1

Modest 85-rated handicap hurdler who remains a ten race maiden. Form overall has been below par of late and is unlikely to be improving at his age.

11/2

Produced his first decent effort over fences last time and if running to his hurdles mark must have every chance. One of the few in this who appears to be close to their best.

611-12OR: CD
16/1

Both hurdles victories have come here but he has been tailed off on his two attempts over fences. May be better on softer ground so definite questions to answer.

811-12OR:
33/1

Winning point-to-pointer who is lightly raced under rules. Failed to land a coup at Carlisle when appearing not to stay before taking on tough company for his chasing bow. Hard to evaluate overall but there are signs this might be his level.

511-10OR:
7/1

Modest hurdler who will be happier on his ground than on chase debut. Shaped well on penultimate outing and never competitive when ridden to get the longer trip last week. Cannot be ruled out, particularly if the market outlook is positive.

Not won since 2015 and despite occasional glimpses since here recent efforts over fences and hurdles far from compelling so easy to pass over here.

811-5OR:
6/1

1-20 career record and that victory came two years ago. Starts chasing following a return to form two weeks ago and on a track where she has gone close five times in six visits. From a good yard and should be well prepared so enters calculations.

711-5OR:
4/1

Would have finished a commendable second at worst had she not fallen at the last a month ago. That was her first creditable effort over fences and the winner is rated 114. She will be hard to beat in this company if suffering no ill effects.

711-5OR: C
5/2

One of her two hurdles victories came here but she was struggling with a mark in the high 90s before switching to fences. Will be fitter and wiser for last month's chase debut and the allowance she gets puts her in the picture.

611-5OR: BF
10/1

Sole win in 24 starts came in a poor race at Limerick when enterprisingly ridden. Top jockey booked for chase debut but on balance there are better hurdlers in this who have had the benefit of chasing experience.

Betting

Forecast

Thisonesforollie (5/2), Payngo (4/1), Le Braye (11/2), Pat's Pearl (6/1), Top Of The Charts (7/1), Torquay (10/1), Comehere Hi (16/1), Muroor (16/1), Pegase Amour (33/1), American Image (66/1), Swarez (66/1)

Verdict

There is not much between these on hurdle ratings but PAYNGO was giving a 114-rated chaser a run for his money before tipping up at the final fence last time and, if none the worse for that, looks to have a bit in hand of her rivals. Thisonesforollie will improve for her chase debut and first run in months, whilst Pat's Pearl likes it here and should go well on her first run over fences. Le Braye and Top Of The Charts represent a top yard but may just find the weight concession to the mares beyond them. Pegase Amour is an enigma given his point-to-form exceeds his rules exploits. This is easier than his last task and he has each-way prospects.
