Teenager now, still showing plenty enthusiasm however with placed efforts on 4-5 starts in 2019. Most recent Ffos Las run (3m, good; 6-1) was a backwards step however.

Now a 22-race maiden, with best form coming over slightly shorter trips. Pulled up over 3m last time out at Southwell, needs to find more in first-time visor.

Hurdles form was modest but shaped with promise on chasing debut here in May when third of 13 in 2m4f novice contest. Not gone forward from that in two further runs, comes here off a wind operation.

C&D winner in 2017, ended a worrying losing run when scoring at Plumpton late last year (3m1f, good/soft); but again with questions to answer after poor reappearance here in May.

Well-backed and much more like it on second chase start when scoring at Warwick (3m, good; 5-2f) in May in novice handicap. Should go well here with talented claimer up.

Mare made a winning chase bow at Bangor (2m1½f, good; 12-1) in October but has struggled to get near that form since and now must prove herself upped significantly in distance.

Won at Southwell (3m) last July but form this season so far has been poor, including when unseating rider early on at Bangor last month. Interesting that Richard Johnson hops back on board now.

10-race maiden under rules, though has shown hints of promises in two most recent starts over fences. Needs another step forward in all likelihood to harbour place claims.

25-race maiden under rules, modest third (beaten 15L) on debut for this trainer over 3m at Ffos Las recently. More required if hoping to gain that elusive success.

Has failed to complete in two chase starts at Huntingdon and Bangor this spring, comes here after a short break with plenty to prove as a result.

Sole success in 37 came at Huntingdon (2m4f+, good) in November 2016 over hurdles; hasn't been firing in that sphere recently, needs to improve now back over fences.

Won Stratford novices handicap chase at close to this trip in May 2017 but ran poorly in three starts soon after and hasn't shown enough in two starts back from long absence to warrant support here.

Has failed to complete in 3-4 starts since a wind operation, with modest 18L third of 13 over 3m at Warwick in May the bright spot. Pulled up since at Ffos Las and opposable on form.

Point-to-point winner remains a maiden under rules and looks up against it again on these terms. Easier to look elsewhere.

Betting

Forecast

Legal Ok (4/1), The Manuscript (4/1), Tanrudy (4/1), Master Sunrise (6/1), Moreece (8/1), Buck Bravo (10/1), Balkinstown (14/1), Culm Counsellor (14/1), Cruising Bye (16/1), Baron Du Plessis (16/1), Midnight Gem (22/1), Heavenly Promise (25/1), Ortenzia (33/1), Desert Sting (33/1), Ann Maries Reject (66/1)

Verdict

Being ridden more prominently appeared to increase interest for THE MANUSCRIPT last time and he duly won at Warwick, showing a pleasing attitude. His 3lb rise is negated here by Jonjo O'Neill's claim and another big run looks likely. Tanrudy may get in the mix if a recent wind operation has the desired effect while Legal Ok and Buck Bravo are amongst those with place notions.
