9/4

Improved since joining current yard, winning on soft at Taunton (2m3f) before similar effort when third in competitive handicap at Chepstow. Yet to race beyond 2m4f but if staying has the form to play a part.

Took seven attempts before landing a Point-to-point. Showed little in novice hurdles last year but better last week on handicap debut at Ludlow when probably in need of the run. Chance if this doesn't come too soon.

Placed in a Bumper in 2015 but has presumably been difficult to keep sound as appearances are sporadic since. Pulled up on debut for this yard last time and tongue tie now goes on.

Game effort to win over 2m7f at Worcester last summer and followed that with creditable second at Stratford. Off for 9 months prior to recent fifth at Warwick and entitled to come on for that.

Placed on good ground over 2m at Tramore last summer. No form to speak of in three goes for this stable and now racing beyond 2m3f for the first time so longer trip needs to spark.

Only form over hurdles was back in 2015. Won a weak Point-to-point prior to finishing last of two finishers in another recently. Only of interest if market speaks in his favour.

Hard to predict but claims on his Stratford second over 2m6f penultimate run. Failed to build on that last time so bit to prove her.

Lightly raced mare who showed first form when close second stepped up to 2m4f at Southwell last time. First time cheek pieces clearly had an effect and retained here as she steps up in trip again.

Poor form to date over hurdles for good yard. Was at least in process of better run on chase debut when falling latest and bit to prove returning to the smaller obstacles.

9/2

Dual Point-to-point winner last summer. Poor form in five runs over hurdles and hasn't built on his third over fences here in February. Blinkers replace normal cheek pieces. Has been supported on occasions so presumably thought capable of better.

Veteran chaser who stays very well and now having first run over hurdles since 2016. Acts on good ground though best form is on softer.

Betting

Forecast

Adherence (9/4), Trumps Benefit (7/2), Buck Bravo (9/2), Boethius (13/2), Manhattan Mead (9/1), Trysor Ynys (12/1), Realta Dawn (14/1), The Last Bridge (14/1), Exotic Friend (16/1), Ector (16/1), Outrageous Romana (25/1), Mr K (40/1)

Verdict

BOETHIUS was in good heart last summer and should derive plenty from his recent Warwick comeback run and is taken to winning form. Trysor Ynys appreciated the step up to 2m4f last time and if this further increase in distance can eke out more improvement she should prove a threat with Trumps Benefit also of interest.
