9/2

Lightly raced without success in recent years. Last win came at Taunton in April 2017 off 6lb higher mark. Fair third when favourite at Plumpton last time over longer trip and return to 3m looks the right call.

13-race maiden beaten at odds-on in maiden hrudle penultimate start then looked ill-at-ease last time on chasing bow when eventually finished tailed off. Handicap bow here but has plenty to prove on recent evidence.

28-race maiden who has been placed 11 times and has gone close on a number of occasions, including when run out while leading 2 out at Huntingdon earlier this month. Fair third on return visit there last time.

Off the mark at 19th time of asking when justifying favouritism in 3m1f h'cap chase at Wincanton having been second on three previous starts. 6lb rise makes life tougher but is in good heart and should be thereabouts.

7lb better off with Midnight Magic for 11-length third to that horse last time. Scored at Worcester this summer off of 5lb lower mark but is holding his form well.

7/2

Won Fontwell 2m3f h'cap chase off 8lb lower mark earlier this month and was in touch at halfway when unseated rider last time at Plumpton. Stepping up markedly in trip so stamina to prove but bold show cannot be ruled out.

Seven-race maiden returning from wind surgery. Ended last term pulling up in novices handicap chase at Warwick. Patchy form prior to that and appears to have stiff task despite returning on 8lb lower mark.

Betting

Forecast

Love The Leader (5/2), Midnight Magic (11/4), Alexander The Grey (7/2), Agent Westy (7/2), Gold Mountain (9/2), Master Sunrise (7/1), Ballygown Bay (11/1), Mr Palmtree (16/1)

Verdict

MIDNIGHT MAGIC is fancied to confirm recent placing with Master Sunrise on 7lb worse terms after everything clicked into place at Wincanton last time. The latter may get closer on the revised terms but has a bit to prove to gain his revenge. Agent Westy is feared and should go well assuming he sees out this new trip, while veteran Love The Leader did it nicely under his conditional rider when scoring at Wincanton last week and another bold show is more than possible. Top weight Gold Mountain is also respected.
