711-12OR: 98BFD
4/1

Scored three times over fences in 2018. Was second of seven at Newton Abbot (2m½f) two starts back but then was disappointing at Southwell (1m7½f) when going off as the 10/3 favourite. Visor on for first time here. Capable of bouncing back.

9/1

Has won six times over hurdles but is looking for his opening victory over fences here on what will be his sixth attempt. Was third of 14 at this track (2m2½f) over hurdles last time. Has to be respected off this mark on return to fences.

6/1

A C&D winner here in July 2018. Since then he has been unable to follow up his success. He finished fourth of eight on his latest run at Southwell (1m7½f). Now back off last winning mark. One to consider.

40/1

Was successful over fences at Hereford (2m) last November but since changing yards, his form has been really poor. Has not looked close to scoring recently, with his latest run coming at Worcester (2m½f) where he was last of nine. Hard to fancy.

12/1

Has won three times over fences, with his latest success coming at Huntingdon (2m½f) back in March 2018. Returning to action at Huntingdon (2m½f) last November following a wind-op where he was third of five. One to watch here.

610-12OR: 84
11/1

Has yet to make an impression on his two runs over fences so far. He was pulled-up at Uttoxeter (2m4f) two starts back, while he then came home sixth of eight at Southwell (1m7½f). Changed yards now. One to watch.

910-9OR: 81
9/1

Has been successful twice in point-to-points but yet to score under Rules. Hit the frame in both of his opening starts for his new yard but needs to bounce back from finishing last of eight on his latest effort at Stratford (2m3½f).

610-1OR: 73
5/2

Remains a maiden after 18 starts. Was beaten as the 2/1 favourite two starts back when second of six at Cartmel (2m1½f). Was disappointing last time at Worcester (2m½f) when he was sixth of nine. Down to a career low mark so has to be considered.

10/1

Is still searching for her opening success after 13 races. Was third of eight last time at Stratford (2m3½f) but was 22L off the winner. Stepping down in trip which may help her chances. Others are preferred though.

8/1

0-18 so far in his career, where three of those starts have been over fences. Was fourth of six last time at Cartmel (2m1½f), 6L behind the winner. Has been eased 4lb by the handicapper which will help but still will need to improve.

Betting

Forecast

Wisecracker (5/2), Dark Invader (4/1), Agentleman (6/1), Gentleman James (8/1), Hurricane Vic (9/1), Marju's Quest (9/1), Right Royals Day (10/1), Jacobite Rising (11/1), Jackthejourneyman (12/1), Buyer Beware (12/1), Thomas Blossom (40/1)

Verdict

MARJU'S QUEST has had success on the Flat and over hurdles and this looks a great chance for him to gain his maiden victory over fences from this latest mark. He has been second on his latest two chase starts but he is down 4lb from his last effort which is likely to be enough to help him go one place better. Wisecracker will need to bounce back from his disappointing effort at Worcester on his previous start but off this low mark, you'd have to expect him to do that, while Agentleman is a C&D winner and is back down to his last winning mark so commands respect.
