Placed in a Grade 3 novice for Gordon Elliott, but fair to say he didn't live up to expectations, and well held at Fairyhouse in April on final start for that yard. Not easy to back until he shows a bit more spark.

1/1

Just 1lb higher than when winning this race last year for Richard Phillips, and while he lost his way in the spring, he's since moved to an in-form yard with a good record with transfers from other yards. One to consider.

Won her first two starts for this yard at Ludlow and Wincanton , and ran as if amiss on her final start. Best to ignore that effort, and not harshly handicapped on her previous efforts.

Improved to land a maiden hurdle at Plumpton in March, and further progress when third of 12 to Neff in a 2m3f novice at Fontwell last month. Drop back to 2m will suit on evidence of that run, and may do better still.

Matched his previous best in this sphere when second of 9 to Nickolson in maiden at Wincanton last month. Fair bit more needed now handicapping, but can't be ruled out easily.

Now 5lb lower than when runner-up at Exeter in January, and while he lost his way a little in the spring, he could easily be revived by a break, and his yard is in fine form at present. Market informative.

710-12OR: 116D

Won off this mark at Wincanton in January, but has failed to go on from that, and has had plenty of chances in handicaps. Not disgraced at Cheltenham last time, but much more required to win this.

Remains a maiden, but not long with current yard, and improved on previous form when second of 12 to War Lord in maiden at Plumpton last time. Needs to prove he can build on that.

Betting

Forecast

Totterdown (1/1), Ebony Gale (9/2), Miranda (6/1), Shut The Box (8/1), Jackson Hill (12/1), Nebuchadnezzar (14/1), Destin D'Ajonc (20/1), The Twisler (20/1)

Verdict

TOTTERDOWN needs to bounce back, but the move to Fergal O'Brien looks a major positive, and he is well handicapped on the form he showed when winning this race last year. Miranda won her first two last term, and is best forgiven a poor effort when last seen as she clearly wasn't herself, while Shut The Box didn't quite get home over further on his return, but still matched his best form, and could do better agin back around 2m.
