612-0OR: 102
11/4

Point-to-point winner last year, joined this yard last month and in truth, didn't show enough on debut in a novice hurdle to make her of obvious interest here. May improve but will have to, and this ground a question too,

10/1

Very good form in one of her bumpers, and if taken at face value, is very well treated here. Not shown a lot so far but goes handicapping now, which can only help, and if she handles this ground, isn't without hope.

911-11OR: 99CD
10/1

Not doing a lot at present but this ground does seem to bring the best out in him, and given he's now some 9lb lower than his last win (albeit that came some while ago), he's hard to totally discount.

711-8OR: 96
13/2

Only the one win in 32 starts and tends to pull his chance away in these races, as was the case again at Huntingdon last time. This ground a major concern as well, and all in all, not hard to look elsewhere.

811-7OR: 95

Have to go back to 2016 to find the last time he was on the scoresheet and he's showing no signs of putting that right any time soon.

611-4OR: 92
14/1

Wasn't much to take out of his debut here for the yard last month but it's early days and connections try a pair of cheekpieces to help him travel better. Watch the market is the advice.

811-0OR: 88
50/1

Shown very little so far and hard to make much of a case for him on what he's achieved in four handicap starts. Not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.

810-13OR: 87
5/1

No win in 15 starts and although there are bits and pieces of form that would give him some hope, most of it comes on better ground, which makes him less appealing here.

1110-11OR: 85D
10/1

Doesn't win that often but on the plus side, does have three heavy-ground wins to his name and he might well appreciate the return to hurdles. Well handicapped if he does, and has chances here.

910-11OR: 85C
33/1

Falling very quickly in the handicap now and did travel a bit better last time out, although when push came to shove, found little. Handles soft/heavy though, which counts for something, and has e/w chances here.

910-4OR: 78
4/1

Only the one win in 28 starts has to be a concern, as does this ground (has little form to speak of on it), but at least he comes here in form after two placed efforts. Has a squeak if he can cope with the slower conditions.

16/1

One win in 49 starts immediately tells you the problem, usually well beaten (including in selling company) and hard to see him taking a leading role here.

Betting

Forecast

Do You Know What (11/4), Indian Reel (4/1), Tower Of Allen (5/1), Bridey's Lettuce (13/2), Stolberg (10/1), Champagne Chaser (10/1), Moor Freedom (10/1), Golan Cloud (14/1), Kilcaragh Boy (16/1), Dun Bay Creek (33/1), Northandsouth (33/1), Why Lie (50/1)

Verdict

Do You Know What may well leave his previous form behind but is likely to be a short price to do so, and is no great value. Stolberg will appreciate conditions and has chances back over hurdles, and at a bigger price Northandsouth is worth a look for each-way players, but now might be the time to chance MOOR FREEDOM, who has shown ability on more than one occasion and looks very fairly handicapped on his second to the classy Emitom in a bumper. Keep an eye on Golan Cloud in the betting too.
