1211-12OR: 98CD
9/2

Dour stayer who ploughed through the mud when winning the four-miler here in November 2017; 10lb 'wrong' at the weights when a respectable 14L fourth of six to Beau Sancy in a Kelso Class 3 (2m7½f, good) latest; key player.

5/2

Dual C&D winner (good/good to soft); much higher in the weights now and was beaten 11L by For Jim (flopped at Uttoxeter since) last month; more positively, he does race enthusiastically and jumps very well; chance.

5/1

34-race maiden; found little at the business end of the race in a C&D maiden hurdle in May (finished fifth of six to Eva's Oskar); intrepidly ventured over to France for a spin over fences last week (fourth).

4/1

Almost as regular as the pie and peas on the Hexham menu having competed here on six of his last seven starts; was beaten 6½L (third) by Witness in a Class 4 handicap hurdle (penultimate); isn't discounted on chasing debut.

8/1

17-race maiden; competes from outside of the handicap proper; not totally exposed over fences (0-2), although does have work to do with Prince Dundee on May C&D form; others are much preferred.

7/2

30-race rules maiden for Kinneston based Nick Alexander; moved on and switched to PTP's in order to break his duck in a poor 3m Open Maiden here last month (made all); tough task from outside of the handicap proper.

Betting

Forecast

Prince Dundee (5/2), Dutch Canyon (7/2), Lawtop Legend (4/1), Lowanbehold (9/2), Dulce Panem (5/1), The Conn (8/1)

Verdict

In a very weak and winnable contest, Prince Dundee (has the measure of The Conn) ticks plenty of boxes as a bold jumping, dual C&D winner. However, he has climbed considerably in the weights since those spring successes, was beaten 11L by a horse who flopped next time out (at Uttoxeter) and does have a few questions to answer on today's rain-softened ground. Therefore, the hardy grey stayer LOWANBEHOLD is the preferred option. He ploughed through the mud when winning the four-miler here in November 2017, won again at Kelso (3m2f, heavy) in April 2018 and faced a very difficult task from out of the weights in a Class 3 handicap latest.
