811-10OR: 144D
10/3

Grade 2 winning novice (2m6½f) in November but fell before halfway next in the Thyestes and finished sixth of 16 in the Grand National trial. Not disgraced again at Punchestown in a strong handicap last time and open to further progress.

2
911-3OR: 145D
11/2

Has struggled to make an impact in three starts since finishing twelfth in the Grand National. Made jumping mistakes in the Galway Plate here on Wednesday and others preferred for now.

Last RunWatch last race

711-3OR: 106C
100/1

One win from 13 chase starts and out of form on his last four starts. Likely to be outclassed in this company and hard to make any sort of case for.

911-3OR: 144
6/1

British raider. First run since a below par run at Wincanton in January but a talented performer at his best. Goes well fresh and a leading contender if the break brings him back to form.

Last RunWatch last race

1011-3OR: 136
5/1

Finished tenth in this year's Grand National and also in the Galway Plate here on Wednesday. Not the force he was from a couple of years ago and likely to find these terms against him. Stable won this last year.

6
911-3OR: 154
6/4

Appeared to be going places when he won the JLT Novices' Chase at Cheltenham in 2017 but hasn't scored since (nine runs). Saddle slipped and unseated in the Galway Plate here on Wednesday but a clear challenger off these terms.

7
1010-13OR: 110
25/1

Won nicely on stable debut at Southwell in June and fair second off 8lb higher mark at Ffos Las last time out. Faces a distinctly different task in this company and likely to struggle.

Betting

Forecast

Yorkhill (6/4), Some Neck (10/3), Valseur Lido (5/1), A Toi Phil (11/2), Theinval (6/1), Bletchley Castle (25/1), Cable (100/1)

Verdict

Yorkhill is certainly enigmatic but can also be forgiven his mishap in the Plate here on Wednesday. He has to be considered off these favourable terms and is one of two for Willie Mullins who won this in 2016 and 2017. His stablemate SOME NECK missed the Plate and is still open to improvement over fences and it may be that a drop back to his last winning trip provides the spark. Theinval is likely to return better for a break and as another classy performer in this field .may be the main danger.
