11/10

Sets the current standard on official ratings; was a useful handicapper on the Flat but adapted well to hurdles. Gained a deserved first win in this sphere last month; this is a significant enough ease in grade for the gelding to head the shortlist.

4/1

Dropped a long way in the ratings but has been hard to win with in recent times; he's a previous C&D winner though and feasible the return to this course will spike his interest. Sound claims back over timber at this level.

15/8

Relatively lightly raced since his last win but has been below par in a couple of chases lately. Reverts to timber at a reasonable level but becoming expensive to follow.

40/1

Price dropped from £7,500 as a yearling to just £1,000 at the Ascot sales last November. Well beaten in a point-to-point last month and probably best watched on rules debut.

150/1

0-9 over hurdles - also a maiden from 11 starts on the Flat - and easy to understand why he's tired in this grade. Out of form and plenty to prove.

Verdict
Irish raider SKEAPING looks to have been found a good opportunity to get back to winning ways and, with the added bonus of the champion jockey in the plate, the gelding has plenty going for him at this level. Vancouver goes well here and is highly effective in this grade; he makes a touch more appeal than Doubly Clever, who is better over hurdles than he is over fences, so could feasibly be another capable of making an impact today.
