511-12OR: 119D
9/2

Unexposed and steps back up in trip to 3m after finishing runner-up at Bangor-on-dee (2m4f; soft) on seasonal return last month. Must have a strong chance, given her appealing and progressive profile.

511-12OR: 119

Only had the three runs for this yard. Third on just second hurdles start back in March, and that was a decent race. Only sixth on seasonal return over fences, but this represents a steep drop in grade.

911-12OR: 119CD
13/2

C&D winner who is only 2lb above last winning mark. Offered some encouragement when fifth on return from short-break over 2m at this track last month. Interesting contender if he has come on from that effort.

17/2

Still rated 14lb above the mark he scored off on his only hurdles success which came back in February 2016. Comeback run at Worcester (2m4f; soft) may have blown the cobwebs away, but he still has enough to prove.

811-5OR: 112
85/40

Takes a drop in class, and hurdles mark is now 12lb lower than it was at Kelso three starts ago. Not showing any obvious signs he is ready to take advantage of that though. Best watched for the time being.

1210-10OR: 103CD
33/1

This is a slight drop in grade, and he returns to hurdles for the first time since April 2015. Course form to his name, but manner of his last four defeats has been disconcerting. Too much to prove.

610-9OR: 102
33/1

Still unexposed, and has only had the one handicap start. Evidently has not been easy to train, but she would have claims on the form of her runner-up effort at Newcastle (2m; soft) in January 2018. Question mark regarding her fitness though.

710-6OR: 99
15/2

First run back after 136-day break. Unsuccessful in four attempts over fences, despite making the frame in three of those runs, when last seen. Still 6lb above last winning mark over hurdles, but does go well fresh.

710-1OR: 94D
6/1

Best watched given the underwhelming first season he had over hurdles in 2018/2019. Last seen when sixth of six at Hexham (3m; good) in May. Subsequently found to be 'lame behind' that day. Risky proposition.

Betting

Forecast

Squouateur (85/40), Takingitallin (9/2), Chanceanotherfive (6/1), Arthurs Secret (13/2), Petite Ganache (15/2), Roycano (17/2), Electron Bleu (11/1), Heartasia (33/1), Blue Kascade (33/1)

Verdict

One of the more competitive races of the afternoon, in which a few have solid credentials. Runners from the Sandy Thomson stable have looked to be in need of their seasonal reappearance's so far this season, and so a much improved run is expected from Arthur's Secret on his second run back from a break. He hasn't cut much ice just yet, but this drop in class should enable Electron Bleu to offer more encouragement to connections. However, for win purposes, this rests between Takingitallin and PETITE GANACHE. The former seems more progressive, but the latter is preferred given his record when fresh and the fact he receives 13lb from the former.
  1. Petite Ganache
  2. Takingitallin
  3. Electron Bleu
