711-12OR: 97BF
7/2

No win in 20 starts in Ireland and third over hurdles on second start for this yard. Failed to make any sort of impression in two previous chase starts and is proving costly to follow. Needs to build on promise of latest effort.

13/2

Inconsistent and infrequent winner although remains lightly raced over fences with one win from eight starts. Last two chase starts though were promising enough and this represents a drop in grade. One to consider.

Pulled up when tailed off on stable and chase debut over 2m5f here last month following a huge 1163-days absence. Easy to overlook for now.

5/1

Has won in a visor previously and needs the reapplication to bring a change in fortune following two below par efforts and remains 2lb higher than last win mark. Others preferred.

4/1

Has impressed when racing to a similar standard in two starts since joining this in form stable and now steps up in distance. Arguably his best run over hurdles came over this trip and could have more to offer at it once more. Should be involved.

710-7OR: 78
7/1

Proving inconsistent and yet to score over hurdles or fences. Appeared to excel himself from 10lb out of the handicap when second at Market Rasen but then poor at Uttoxeter. Chance if bouncing back but hard to predict.

910-4OR: 75
9/1

Plummeting in the handicap and now 17lb below last win. However needs to turn around a slide in form and well beaten in both starts this year. Others look more reliable at present.

Failed to complete a race under Rules or in point-to-points in nine starts since April 2017. Refused in a hunter chase last time and impossible to recommend.

Maiden in all forms including eight chase starts. Returned from an absence since July 2016 with a 45L third and an unseat latest. Hard to imagine he'll find the significant improvement needed to be involved.

Just two thirds from 11 chase starts with the hood reapplied following some regressive. Hasn't raced to a good enough standard for over a year now and others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Iusetaluvheronce (7/2), Kahdian (4/1), Mister Mister (5/1), Canny Tom (13/2), Kilmoganny (7/1), Code Of Law (9/1), Sir George Somers (12/1), St Merryn (16/1), Rising Breeze (20/1), Thats Yer Man (33/1), Killabraher Cross (100/1)

Verdict

KAHDIAN has hit the ground running with two good runs for his new stable and can progress again up in trip. Down in class Canny Tom has to be considered if he can continue to build on his latest two runs. Iusetaluvheronce was a decent third over hurdles last time and the race was backed up by a good time, so perhaps he's worth another chance.
