10/1

Turned in a rather lacklustre display when last seen over hurdles (now wears a first-time visor) before running one of his better races over fences last time. Slipped back below his last winning marks over hurdles/fences; chance on his best form.

Only win and best form has come in testing conditions (unlikely to find those here); not disgraced in her last two starts (back from a break). Mark continues to fall but she's not really looking as though she will be taking advantage any time soon.

7/2

Won two PTP's before running one of his better races last time in a Stratford hunter chase (second to an odds-on favourite). Now makes his stable debut back over hurdles off what looks to be a fair mark; one to watch in the market.

Placed in bumpers he's yet to really show anything like that level of form over hurdles; hopes now pinned on a first try in handicaps to revive his fortunes. Wouldn't be a surprise to see him step forward but some market expectancy would be needed.

Well beaten on his only Flat starts he's hardly raised that lowly bar in three starts over hurdles having started at 50-1 plus on each occasion. Now goes handicapping for the first time but hard to conclude that his opening mark looks generous.

Took a step forward from the poor form that she showed in Ireland on her stable debut at Cartmel last time albeit in a lowly grade. First-time cheekpieces are now given a go in an effort to eke out some more progress off the same mark.

Modest sort who these days is hard to catch right failing to complete in his last two starts (pulled up). Fallen back to his last winning mark but remains a hazardous proposition even in this limited company.

9/2

Failed in his chasing hat-trick bid when last seen (jumping let him down); reportedly finished lame. Appears again quite quickly though back over hurdles off his last winning chase mark; can't be ruled out given his recent progress.

611-0OR: 87
4/1

Failed to really fire over hurdles as yet (had looked the sort to keep an eye on in handicaps). Mark continues to fall (down to a career-low here) after a decent enough effort at Taunton last time (3m); a market move would spark interest.

611-0OR: 87CD
7/1

Off the mark at the ninth attempt in a C&D handicap off a 7lb lower mark and equalled that run last time under a 7lb penalty when placed over C&D. Likely to remain in good form and has proved herself around here; very much on the shortlist.

710-11OR: 84D
50/1

Winning Irish pointer who has so far failed to show much over hurdles (quickly departed Henry Oliver's yard after handicap debut). Failed to improve/show much for this yard via a wind op; little expected here on current evidence.

1010-7OR: 80D
8/1

Dual winner when with the Skelton yard but his form for this stable has been way below that level until reviving last time to land a gamble. Up 5lb and under the same good value conditional (has won off higher before); claims if in the same form.

1110-4OR: 77
50/1

Not the most straightforward and well beaten on her latest three starts but has slipped back to her last winning mark. Cheekpieces worn for that win now back on but hard to rely on her reproducing any sort of form now.

Betting

Forecast

Buck Dancing (7/2), Pottlereaghexpress (4/1), For Jim (9/2), Kildaven Spider (7/1), Taras Day (7/1), West To Crossgales (7/1), Simply Lucky (8/1), Market Road (10/1), Baby Ted (12/1), Indian Native (16/1), Havana River (25/1), Scorpion Sea (50/1), Agent Louise (50/1), Rollercoster (50/1), Howlongisafoot (50/1), Karapiro Boy (66/1)

Verdict

A low grade if open event with the market likely to provide the key to the chance of one or two such as Buck Dancing, Baby Ted and Pottlereaghexpress, the first and last named of that trio of particular interest with positive market vibes. For Jim returns to hurdles of what looks to be a workable mark while West To Crossgales is another who should be competitive again after his Fakenham success the handicapper hasn’t been harsh. TARAS DAY edges a number out as the selection though given her good C&D form she showed last time that she is capable off this mark and has a good chance of resuming winning ways.
