7/2

Gradually getting back to his best for his new stable scoring on his third run for them (first time since his juvenile hurdling days) at Bangor (2m, good). Didn't quite match that form last time (not such a speed test); likely to go well again here.

11/1

Form over fences (after a wind op) showed an upward progression in the middle of last year (won three times; fine second in big summer handicap chase). Handicap scope now limited over fences; tries his luck off a lower mark back over hurdles.

Improved like many for a move to this yard at Uttoxeter on his second run (overcame some difficulties) to score (had looked quirky time before). Those quirks were in evidence last time (pulled up) when unable to dominate at the scene of his last win.

6/4

Useful sort on the Flat (won off 75) who has quickly matched that level of form over timber; continues to look on a decent mark in this sphere. Good effort at Southwell last time to a thriving winner (pair clear); strong claims off the same mark.

11/2

Enjoyed a good spell from June-October last year winning three times and still looked in good heart when returning from a break at Ffos Las last time. All his wins have come off lower mark; suspicion that the handicap mark/grade will test him here.

Betting

Forecast

Groveman (6/4), Asylo (5/2), Nayati (7/2), Borak (11/2), Too Many Diamonds (11/1)

Verdict

Nicely weighted on his last run at Southwell where he ran into a well handicapped sort in previous winner Magna Cartor the Jedd O’Keefee trained GROVEMAN is given a good chance of going one better in this handicap hurdle. Nayati has form on the prevailing surface but could possibly do with less of a test that this will provide. Asylo is cited as the main danger as he looks sure to get the easy lead that he craves as that appears to keep his obvious quirks in check. Too Many Diamonds is well handicapped on his chase form but has a long absence to overcome while this looks test that will prove too tough for Borak.
