611-8OR: 132D
7/1

Maiden hurdler, but wind surgery and switch to fences appeared to do the trick when winning nicely at Huntingdon in May. First run back but yard not in best of form at present so will do well to defy top weight on handicap bow.

9/2

Landed 2m maiden hurdler here in February and very nearly followed up subsequent start at Huntingdon over 2m4f. Ran with credit both starts after in better company. Looks type to make a chaser for top yard and is respected on fencing bow.

Won two 2m handicap hurdles last season, one at this venue, and shaped with some promise when second of four on chasing bow at Newton Abbot last month. More needed, but a step forward is quite possible.

Justified odds-on favourite twice at Hereford last autumn in 2m hurdles and ran with credit on occasions in handicaps after. Chasing bow here and gets weight from some so worth watching for any market interest.

Huntingdon 2m maiden hurdle winner in March 2018 for Sam Thomas then good fourth in Ascot Listed event time after. Ran creditable both starts for current yard last winter and is interesting on chase debut. Yard in fair form.

Comfortably landed 2m three-runner Huntingdon h'cap chase in May. Underwent wind surgery this summer and has run creditably both starts since, most recently over hurdles. Gets weight all round so no forlorn hope back over fences.

Betting

Forecast

Sparkleandshine (2/1), Court Royale (10/3), Kingofthecotswolds (9/2), What's Occurring (5/1), Storm Control (7/1), Cesar Du Gouet (8/1)

Verdict

A tightly-knit heat with most having had limited or no experience over fences. KINGOFTHECOTSWOLDS has always looked the right type to make a name for himself over fences and couldn't be in better hands. A fair hurdler, he can make a winning chasing bow. Sparkleandshine may give the selection most to do having shown ability over timber last term, and top weight Storm Control returns from a break but has already won over fences and is a decent yardstick. What's Occuring may do best of the rest.
