12/1

3-24 in bumpers and over hurdles, all successes coming on very testing ground. Makes chasing bow in a handicap with top weight on ground likely to be quicker than ideal. Respected though, hailing from top Irish yard.

2-9 over hurdles and won at Ayr over 2m5f in March. Beaten just a short-head there over 3m in May and is interesting making her chasing bow in this handicap contest.

Four-time hurdles winner for Philip Hobbs at up to 2m4f. Bought for just £8000 by current yard and made fair debut finishing second at Catterick in 2m3f handicap chase in November. Poor form last four starts and has something to prove now.

11/8

Won point-to-point for Dan Skelton in April and has won two Perth 2m4f handicap hurdles since joining new yard. Switched to fences now and is clearly in great heart so every chance he will put up a bold show.

Yard in scintillating form at present and did his bit landing Wexford handicap chase in game fashion last month. Has higher mark to defy but given current 33% strike rate he should be thereabouts.

Betting

Forecast

Amalfi Doug (11/8), Top Of The Charts (2/1), Spinning Scooter (6/1), Talkofgold (15/2), Pat's Oscar (12/1), Braavos (16/1)

Verdict

Getting a great deal of weight from all his rivals, SPINNING SCOOTER may just edge it despite having been raised 8lb for his narrow success over C&D last time. Hat-trick seeking Amalfi Doug will be a popular choice and should again go well, and Top Of The Charts brings winning form to the table along with that of a yard going through a purple patch. Talk Of Gold isn't out of it, but Pat's Oscar is set a stiff task on his chase bow and will do well to score.
