711-9OR: 136CD
7/2

Progressive over hurdles in the summer and began well when 7L second (eased when beaten) on his chase debut at Worcester (2m7f, soft) in September. Drops 1lb and also in trip, but this prominent racer could have a big say.

9/1

Dual novice hurdle winner last season at around 3m. Returns from seven months off for his chase debut, with no change to the mark from which he scored at Wetherby in April. Acts on soft, but could be tapped for toe over this trip.

6/1

Maiden who has not been finding much at the business end of his races. Acts on soft. Back up in trip here (beaten 14½L when tried over 2m5½f over hurdles in February). Scope for further improvement over fences, but bit to prove on debut.

811-2OR: 129D
25/1

Multiple winner whose first chase success came in beginners' company at Cartmel (2m5f, soft) in July. Bettered that when tried over 2m7f at Worcester next time. Held at Stratford last time, but not ruled out from this mark on handicap debut.

11/4

Looked potentially useful when winning by 7L in a Chepstow maiden hurdle (2m3½f, soft) at their Christmas meeting last year. Disappointed on only run since, at Exeter in March. Scope for plenty more over fences. Market check on debut.

4/1

Got off the mark at the eighth chase attempt at Ffos Las last month (2m5f, soft), when staying on strongly to win by 12L. Up 10lb for that, but could still be well treated if taking that form at face value. Player.

510-12OR: 125BFD
5/1

Showed good attitude to win on his third start over hurdles at Ayr (2m4½f, soft) in January. Went off favourite to win on his handicap debut at Sandown when last seen in February, but held in third. Chase success in his pedigree. Interesting.

Betting

Forecast

Present Value (11/4), Follow The Bear (7/2), Joueur Bresilien (4/1), Johnbb (5/1), Champagne Mystery (6/1), Trio For Rio (9/1), Paint The Dream (10/1), Canton Prince (25/1)

Verdict

An interesting opener. Champagne Mystery looks the pick of the Henderson-trained pair on jockey bookings. He could go close again, but he does have a bit to prove. Canton Prince has invaluable experience and should be competitive, but arguably those of greater interest are the bottom four runners on the racecard. Present Value and Johnbb both merit market checks, Joueur Bresilien has to be taken very seriously after a wide margin win, but PAINT THE DREAM represents a yard in good form and could come into his own now chasing.
