12/1

Was successful three-times as a novice over fences. Came home third of 16 in a Grade 3 contest at Newbury (2m4f) back in March. Latest effort at Market Rasen (2m5½f) was disappointing though. Is capable so is worth respecting.

Prevailed in a Grade 3 contest at Cheltenham (2m5f) in January 2018. Has won just once since then though. He came home at the rear of six runners at Kelso (2m1f) last time. Should come on for that run over this longer trip. One to think about.

A three-time winner over hurdles but has yet to score over fences. Has featured in Graded company already where he has not disgraced himself. He was fifth of 23 last time at Cheltenham (3m2f). This assignment looks easier. Big player.

Has won twice over fences. Was performing well at the back end of last season. Finished last of nine runners on his return to action at Market Rasen (2m5½f) though. Cheekpieces are on for the first time. Expect much better here.

Recorded a hat-trick of wins over hurdles earlier this year before switching to fences. Made his chase debut at Cheltenham (3m½f) where he was pulled up after the fourth fences from home. Capable of more than that. One to think about.

Has some modest form over hurdles where he prevailed just once. Made his chase debut at Ludlow (2m4f) last time where he unseated his rider when in with a chance. Latest mistake may be worth forgiving.

Shot up the weights earlier this year following three consecutive victories over fences. Could only finish third of five at Fakenham (3m) on his last appearance. Does need to produce more from this mark.

7/2

A C&D winner who was unable to add to his tally last season but produced three respectable appearances. He returned to action at Stratford (2m3½f) last month where he was fifth of 12 runners. Capable of being in the mix from this mark.

Has yet to score in four attempt over fences so far. He had just one horse behind him in a nine runner contest at Worcester (2m7f) last time out. Handicapper has dropped him down 2lb. Needs to improve.

Betting

Forecast

Town Parks (7/2), Fleminport (7/2), No Comment (4/1), Ballyhill (9/2), Valdez (12/1), Dans Le Vent (14/1), Whoshotwho (14/1), Present Ranger (16/1), Cap Du Nord (20/1)

Verdict

NO COMMENT was very smart over hurdles and although he is still looking for his first chase success, he has been mixing it at the very highest level. This drop in class gives him a great chance of recording his maiden victory over fences. Present Ranger has been in excellent form over hurdles this year and although he did not make a great start to his chase career, this assignment is easier so he has a good chance of going close, while much more can be expected of Ballyhill on his second start of the season over this longer distance than his recent effort at Kelso.
