611-12OR: 100

Both wins have come at around 2m7f but has run with credit at about this trip in the past. Yard still has sound strike rate despite quieter period and has to be respected in a moderate affair.

411-10OR: 100

Looks capable of winning a race and was fair second at Worcester over two miles last time in novice maiden hurdle. Runs in a handicap for the first time and quite possible she'll do better for this longer trip.

811-8OR: 96D

Very eyecatching booking as champion has 40% strike rate (2-5) for this yard over the years. Had a spin on Flat at Redcar recently but hasn't raced over hurdles for 995 days. Was good second over C&D back in 2015.

411-7OR: 97

Hasn't shown much at all in four runs to date and was well beaten on handicap debut when long last of five at Stratford earlier this month. Dropped 5lb and steps up in trip but others make much more appeal.

511-7OR: 95

Didn't show much in first two hurdles outings but did better last time when fourth in Market Rasen 2m maiden. Handicap bow now with tongue tied first time and stepping up in trip. Well worth a check for any market interest.

1011-6OR: 94D

Winner of five over hurdles and ran rare poor race when well beaten at Stratford last time after nine-month absence. Should strip fitter and is arguably well handicapped on pick of previous season's form.

Last RunWatch last race
7
511-6OR: 94

Has shown improved form last two starts since going handicapping and not beaten far on either occasion. Tries a longer trip now and top jockey takes over from amateur so no surprise to see her run well.

Last RunWatch last race
8
411-4OR: 94

Pretty consistent last four runs in Scotland and Ireland and made a bold bid last time when third at Downpatrick. May be just about in handicapper's grip but shouldn't be too far away.

911-2OR: 90

23-race maiden who has had her chances over the years and was odds-on for C&D h'cap hurdle back in 2016 only to finish third. Hasn't taken to fences last three starts and on balance others look more interesting.

711-1OR: 89

Irish raider partnered by rider who is 3-5 (60%) for this trainer on British tracks. Not seen since July last year when trained by Harry Whittington and runs off 4lb lower than that fifth of 15 at Worcester. Worth keeping an eye on.

610-7OR: 81

Not much at all to write home about in her six runs so far and was beaten a country mile on handicap bow when tailed off last time. First time tongue-tie but others are much more appealing.

Last RunWatch last race
12
610-3OR: 77

Pulled up in two of her last four starts since undergoing wind surgery. Not totally disgraced last time after eight-week break and first-time blinkers may help off 5lb lower mark.

Last RunWatch last race
13
710-2OR: 76

Poor form all five starts under Rules and showed nothing when last seen nine months ago. Makes handicap debut but will do very well to get involved on all known form.

Last RunWatch last race
14
610-0OR: 74

20-race maiden but ran her best race so far when failing by just a length-and-a-half in Perth 2m h'cap hurdle last time. Raised just 2lb and good conditinal claims 5lb but not certain longer trip will suit.

Last RunWatch last race
15
610-0OR: 70

Yet to reach a place in nine attempts and was pulled up at Leicester last time when wearing blinkers for the first time. Hard to see her figuring from 4lb out of the handicap.

Last RunWatch last race
16
1110-0OR: 70D

4lb out of the handicap and makes debut for new yard after 161-day absence. Hasn't won since 2016 but not disgraced last three runs during the winter and in a poor race cannot be ruled out if fit and well despite advanced age.

Betting

Forecast

Mrs Davies (4/1), Artichoke Heart (6/1), Aweeminit (6/1), Midnight Aurora (13/2), Wise Coco (7/1), Santa Anna (9/1), Flower Power (9/1), Timassini (11/1), Viognier (12/1), Mollyow (14/1), Milan Of Crystal (14/1), Marvellous Monty (14/1), Lady Avery (20/1), This Lovely Lady (22/1), Viking Ruby (33/1), Okmyway (50/1)

Verdict

Irish raider VIOGNIER might be worth chancing despite a long absence. Her trainer-jockey have a 60% strike rate on the rare occasions they have teamed up and she is less exposed than most in a very moderate event. Stable companions Midnight Aurora and Aweeminit are both capable of taking a hand, while Mrs Davis, Artichoke Heart and Flower Power are others who can be given a chance. The junior contender Santa Anna is also worth a check for any market support.
