911-8OR: CD
2/5

Won over hurdles on this card last year but showed an immediate appreciation of fences with a win at Limerick last month. He's gong the right way and has to merit consideration.

811-2OR: D
20/1

Enjoyed a good spell over hurdles; won two of his last three starts in pleasing style. Would be racing from a career highest mark in a handicap hurdle, so the switch to fences looks a natural move. Will encounter a couple of promising types though.

5/1

Well beaten in both starts over fences and already has improvement to find. However, he's a Cheltenham Festival winner over hurdles (2016 Triumph Hurdle) so merits respect accordingly. (Hasn't looked a natural chaser.)

911-2OR: CD
10/1

A Grade 3 winner over hurdles but lost his way in that discipline; was also beating a retreat when he unseated on his chasing debut earlier this month. The betting can guide as to where he stands with stablemates Ivanovich Gorbatov and Tigris River.

811-2OR: D
7/1

Won the Galway Hurdle in 2017 but came up short in numerous graded races at festivals since; chase form has also been regressive even though he finished just in front of Ivanovich Gorbatov last time out.

Betting

Forecast

Ravenhill (2/5), Brahma Bull (5/4), Ivanovich Gorbatov (5/1), Tigris River (7/1), Plinth (10/1), Father Jed (20/1)

Verdict

BRAHMA BULL and Ravenhill look the safest pair to concentrate on as they look the most open to further progress over fences. Both are already previous winners over the larger obstacles but Brahma Bill has made good strides from winning bumpers and a race over hurdles through to a comfortable win on his chasing debut last month. His yard won this race last year and look the likeliest set of connections to be celebrating post race. Father Jed edges out former high-class hurdler Tigris River as the best of the rest.
