611-13OR: 111
7/1

0-8 over hurdles/fences, but effort over hurdles at Fontwell (2m6f; good) was promising. Could have a say if able to reproduce that level of form if fit enough on seasonal reappearance.

1/1

Only beaten a neck on stable debut at Hexham (2m4f; soft) last week. Soft ground may have been to blame, but the front pair drew 12-length clear of the third. Should appreciate the forecast drier ground, and may make amends.

4/1

Hat-trick bid foiled when she wasn't beaten far into third at Newton Abbot (3m2f; good) in September. Only 3lb higher, and should still be there or thereabouts. However, the form of the yard is of concern (21 runners since last winner).

Still chasing his first win over hurdles, and he only managed to beat the one rival when 12th of 13 over this C&D back in April. Yard are having winners, but he is still hard to fancy. Fit from the flat.

28/1

Only had the three starts over hurdles, and should improve for the switch to handicaps. Posted another good effort when running better than the finishing position would suggest to finish last of three last time out. One for the shortlist.

20/1

Reverts to hurdles for the first time in almost a year, but he is fit from his seasonal comeback effort on the flat at Salisbury (1m6f; good to firm) last month. 0-10 over hurdles and does need to step up a bit.

Less exposed than some of his rivals, and posted a more encouraging effort when fourth at Newton Abbot (2m5f; good). Dealt a fair slice of bad luck when suffering a heavy fall at the last when it looked as though he was going to win last time out.

610-7OR: 91

Still 4lb above last winning mark, and she posted another quiet effort at Uttoxeter (2m4f; good) when last seen in July. Subsequently has a bit to prove, and is therefore best watched for the time being.

17/2

21-race maiden (0-11 over hurdles), and has first run since finishing in midfield at Taunton (3m; good) April. Place claims at best if able to show something like the form she showed when third at Wincanton (2m5f; good) the time before that.

410-0OR: 70
50/1

0-9 over hurdles, and showed very little again when only midfield at Worcester (2m7f; good). Now drops back in trip, but has plenty to prove at present and can't be recommended.

Verdict

After recording a career-best when just pipped at Southwell on his seasonal reappearance, Nifty Fifty has solid claims. The front two drew 21-length clear of the third then, and if improving from that effort he could be tough to beat. The David Pipe team haven't had a winner for 38 days (21 runners in that space of time), but Hot Ryan is still respected after he was unsuccessful in his bid for a hat-trick at Southwell last month. However, the selection is SOMETHINBOUTANGELA who narrowly failed in her bid to make a winning stable debut for Dr. Richard Newland when second at Hexham last Friday. With the promise of more to come back on better ground, she should make amends.
