15:30 Market Rasen Sun 4 August 2019
Won over hurdles at Warwick in May but hasn't looked a natural in two efforts over fences of late. Eased in the weights but appears to face a stiff task on what we've seen so far.
Looked certain winner when falling at last at Fakenham in March but bounced back last time with game effort to score at Newton Abbot in April. Returns from wind surgery off 6lb higher mark and looks a player.
Veteran who has amassed 11 career success but none beyond 2m5f. Hasn't shown any worthwhile form for a year or so and despite falling mark is hard to enthuse over.
Stays much further than this but has been in-and-out of form of late. Chance on decent second off this mark at Warwick in May but ran poorly at Cartmel last time.
Three-time chase winner in Ireland makes his British debut for new handler. Won over this trip at Fairyhouse in November but not seen for more than seven months. Has gone well fresh in the past.
Yet to score under Rules but ran a cracker on debut for current yard when still holding every chance at the last at Uttoxeter recently only to tie up on the run-in. Runs off same mark and every chance if ridden with a touch more restraint.
Three wins here including two at this trip, most recently in May last year. Not been in great form of late and returns here from wind surgery. Nicely handicapped on old form if breathing has been fixed.
Made winning handicap chase bow at Plumpton in April and has run respectably in both outings since. Still 6lb higher than that winning mark but should be there or thereabouts.
Only success from 63 attempts came here over 2m5f in November. Has been badly out of form since then and very hard to see him figuring here form 16lb out of the handicap.
