16:40 Market Rasen Sun 4 August 2019
Winner of sole point-to-point but has cut little ice under Rules thus far. Steps up 2f and makes handicap bow in moderate event but has plenty to prove on what we've seen to date. Wears first time tongue-tie.
Heavy ground juvenile 7f novice stakes winner two season ago. Only modest form in three novice hurdles, beaten a very long way when second over C&D last time. Open to some improvement though for shrewd yard on handicap debut.
Frustrating 14-race maiden prior to debut for top yard on Thursday where fairly hacked up at Stratford over 2m6f. Carries 7lb penalty and drops back half a mile but may be hard to stop if recovered from his recent exertions.
Had become disappointing prior to return to form last time when running on bravely to score here over two miles. Up in trip and raised 5lb, but has to be considered on evidence of her last effort.
Just outpointed by Rococo Style here in June and slightly better off now at wieghts. Failed by just a length to score over fences at Carlisle two weeks ago so remains in form and should be on the premises.
Lightly raced gelding who showed promise on Flat for John Gosden but has had issues and not stood much racing last three seasons for current yard. Hasn't looked a natural hurdler and will do well to score on first start for 15 months.
Led till after last over 2m4f here in March and lost out by just a short-head. Has run poorly in three starts since, most recently pulling up in Flat race at Southwell. Trip should suit but current form a concern.
20-race maiden who had fair Flat form for William Haggas but has lost his way last three years under both codes. Beaten a long way at Uttoxeter last time off 4lb higher mark and would be a surprise winner.
Ex-Irish mare who placed a few times at up to 1m4f for Jim Bolger. Runner-up in two 2m h'cap hurdles at Ffos Las this spring prior to wind surgery. Found little for pressure on first start back and needs to raise her game.
Stayed on well to win at Fontwell in June over 2m1f but finished a well held third last time off current mark. Bold show not out of the question though with winning Fontwell rider back in the plate.
