20/1

Decent handicap hurdler but just 1-15 over fences, and that win came in 2015. Can give him a chance from this mark, but not sure whether he will take it.

7/1

Veteran winner of 6-30 over fences, and ran well on his reappearance at Chepstow (soft) last month. 2lb drop will help, and with his trainer's string in form, it would be no surprise to see him go close.

1211-12OR: 130DWS
50/1

Abundant stamina, as shown when winning 2018 Midlands National (4m2f, heavy), when 5lb higher. Inconsistent last season. Has had a wind operation since then, so could bounce back and is on a handy mark if he can.

25/1

Won from 4lb lower (2m7f, soft) at Newbury in February 2018, but not seen since May of that year. Yet to win when fresh, but has few miles on the clock and would be interesting if supported on this reappearance.

811-11OR: 129CD
8/1

Off the mark at the ninth attempt over fences when scoring at Warwick (3m, good) last month. Up 7lb for that, but still a bit of scope from this mark based on his old hurdles form. Has won on heavy. Enters calculations.

711-10OR: 128CD
11/1

Won here over hurdles (2m2½f, good to soft) in February, when on today's mark. 1-5 over fences so far. May come on for last month's reappearance, and would be a player if replicating her chase run here from March.

20/1

Scored at Bangor (3m, good to soft) in January, when 4lb lower. Lost his way after that. Has won here over hurdles, and still open to improvement over fences after just three runs, but yet to win when fresh.

811-5OR: 123
5/1

Arrives seeking a hat-trick after wins at Taunton (2m7f, good) and Newbury (2m6½f, good to soft) earlier in the year. Up 12lb for the latter. Returns from eight months off, but has a good record when fresh. Player.

711-4OR: 122
14/1

All three wins have been on good ground, so conditions probably not ideal for him. Certainly appears to have the ability to have a say from today's mark, if he can produce something like his best, but has it to prove after a below par reappearance.

1011-4OR: 122C
11/2

2-20 over fences, both on good. Stays 4m1f. Not written off from this mark, but tends to race over further and testing ground perhaps not ideal.

15/2

Dual chase winner at up to 3m2½f (both good to soft) last season for Neil Mulholland. Since changed hands and makes debut for this trainer today. Has twice won when fresh and scope for a bit more from this mark. Interesting.

Would have claims if reproducing his C&D run from January (good to soft), and is on a handy mark, but lost his way after that. Bit to prove.

20/1

Wide margin heavy ground novice hurdle winner at Fontwell in March 2018. Showed ability on her final start last season in a Stratford handicap chase. Has a squeak if in that mood, but needs to be much better than her reappearance.

Betting

Forecast

Orchardstown Cross (5/1), Le Boizelo (5/1), Dancing Shadow (11/2), Perfect Candidate (7/1), Moving In Style (15/2), For Good Measure (8/1), Dinos Benefit (11/1), Forgot To Ask (14/1), Belle Empress (20/1), Dell' Arca (20/1), Holdbacktheriver (20/1), Indy Five (25/1), Regal Flow (50/1)

Verdict

More questions than answers going into this race, where the tentative suggestion is MOVING IN STYLE, who does at least go well fresh, stays well and may have more to come from this mark. Forgot To Ask could be a threat if at his best, while Orchardstown Cross may prove the biggest danger to the selection. Perfect Candidate is another for the shortlist from an in-form yard, while Regal Flow, For Good Measure and Dinos Benefit are not ruled out.
  1. Moving In Style
  2. Orchardstown Cross
  3. Perfect Candidate
