711-12OR: 99D
7/1

Has done well over the summer, winning twice and then improving again to finish third at Southwell over 3m, staying on well late; effective at this trip and as long as rain stays away, could go close of fit after a break.

4/1

Still a maiden after 17 starts but hard to knock what she's doing at present, placed on last three starts and bumped into an improver at Exeter last time out; this arguably less competitive, and from 1lb lower, has a chance of breaking her duck.

8/1

Hard to win with, as a record of 1 victory in 26 starts demonstrates, but he does have ability and has finished close up over hurdles a few times now; close fifth over C&D last time would give him chances if repeating.

Had looked to be going the wrong way but turned it around with victory at Stratford last time out, not unbacked to do so either; gets a 9lb rise for that but less to prove than plenty here, and obvious chances of following up.

Showed bits and pieces of ability in bumpers/novice hurdles but a bit disappointing he couldn't do better on handicap debut at Bangor in April; early days though and could improve if ready to go after summer break.

Only seen four times over hurdles, placed once, but almost came good on the Flat at Nottingham last month and looks well treated if she can translate that run back over hurdles; some rain would help her cause too. Chances, with trip likely to suit.

Winner form an 8lb lowe rmark at Taunton back in April and ran at least as well at Exeter next time; below par at Uttoxeter when made favourite latest but soft ground a possible excuse; upped in trip here but does stay, and has a chance.

33/1

Has been too keen for his own good and as a result, not seeing his races out with any effort; arguably a little better at Chepstow last time but not enough to make him of great interest here.

16/1

Just the one win in 30 starts under all codes rather shows the issue, he simply finds winning very difficult; unseated when tried over fences last time and although switch back to hurdles may help, really not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.

50/1

Has very little to recommend his chance, beaten big distances most starts and needs the addition of a tongue-tie here to have a major effect if he's to get anywhere near winning this.

Betting

Forecast

Lochinver (4/1), Kilkeaskin Molly (4/1), Methag (5/1), Veiled Secret (6/1), Diamond Rose (7/1), Arcadian Sea (8/1), Cosheston (11/1), Kalaskadesemilley (16/1), Meldrum Way (33/1), Troy Dee Knee (50/1)

Verdict

Veiled Secret is probably the one to beat here, as he has the form in the bank, stays this trip and has a ready excuse for a moderate effort at Uttoxeter last time (soft ground), but there are possible improvers in the field in the shape of METHAG and, to a lesser extent, Arcadian Sea. Methag ran well at Nottingham on her latest start on the Flat, a run that makes her look well treated here if she can translate the form. Arcadian Sea is hard to win with but a repeat of his latest effort here gives him place chances at worst.
