612-1OR: 122
20/1

Was successful at Uttoxeter (2m4f) over hurdles three starts back. Was back on the Flat last time at Nottingham (2m) where he could only finish eighth of 13. Has been eased 2lb but will still need to produce more from this mark.

Has been in good form this season with two wins from his five starts. His last success came at Cartmel over 3m1½f. Was fourth of seven at Cartmel (3m1½f) last time. Has been eased 2lb in the weights. Others preferred.

Experienced gelding who has won four times over hurdles. Has hit the frame three times this season. Could only finish fifth of 11 at Perth (3m) last time. Down in trip slightly here on latest attempt.. Each-way chance.

11/2

Started the season with success at this track over 2m4½f. Has been unable to follow it up in three outings since then. Was fourth of seven over this distance on his latest start at Uttoxeter. One for the shortlist.

14/1

Won over fences at Southwell (3m) back in June. Was pulled-up last time at Galway (2m6½f) though, in a race which was won by Yorkhill. Returns to hurdles. This assignment will be easier. One to consider.

510-12OR: 105D
2/1

Broke his maiden at Uttoxeter last time where he justified favouritism to finish a head of Court Affairs. Has gone up 5lb since his success. Down in trip slightly here. Sure to be contention once again.

9/5

Was a winner on his debut in a bumper at Carlisle (2m1f). Has yet to score over hurdles but he went very close last time at Uttoxeter (2m7½f) when second of six, beaten by a head behind Jen's Boy. Tongue-tie on first time. Leading chance.

14/1

Remains a maiden after 10 starts. Was last of five at Hexham (2m7½f) on her return to action but then was much better last time at Perth (3m) as he was fourth of 11. Each-way claims off this mark.

Betting

Forecast

Court Affairs (9/5), Jen's Boy (2/1), Farmer Boy (11/2), Sleepy Haven (10/1), Simply Mani (14/1), Bletchley Castle (14/1), Cairnshill (16/1), Final Choice (20/1)

Verdict

There was only a head between Jen's Boy and COURT AFFAIRS last time and those two are likely to be fighting it out at the finish once again where the latter can reverse the form with his rival over this slightly shorter trip. Bletchley Castle has been no worse than second in his two two handicap starts over fences this season so expect another big performance as he goes back to hurdles where he has had success before.
