711-12OR: 105DWS
9/2

Best hurdles effort when third on final start in March at Chepstow over 2m3f and returns now following wind surgery. May do better over fences but stable has gone nearly a year without a winner which is a concern.

4/1

Dam won over fences but didn't show a great deal in four starts over timber including at Exeter three weeks ago. Hard to get too excited about his chance here unless he proves a natural chaser.

9/2

Yard operating at good 24% winning strike-rate at present. Ran best race when just beaten in heavy ground over this trip in a Chepstow novice hurdle last December. Better recent fourth of five at Bangor last time and should go well.

13/2

Only win came in Fontwell handicap hurdle last season on decent ground so the heavy surface here has to be a bit of a concern. In-and-out form this spring and returns here from summer break.

6/1

Won 2m7f handicap hurdle here last season but disappointed both starts since including when pulled up at Chepstow on poor chasing debut a few weeks ago. Has plenty to prove on that evidence.

Eight-race maiden who has run poorly in all three starts since joining current yard in February. Makes chasing bow with plenty to prove at present.

610-2OR: 81D
8/1

Very modest form over hurdles and hasn't looked a natural so far in two starts over the larger obstacles. Pulled up when tailed off last time at Ffos Las in April and needs to take a big step forward this term.

5/1

13-race maiden hurdler tries his luck over fences for the first time. Probably best on a sound surface so will do well to figure on chase bow in forecast bog-like conditions.

Betting

Forecast

Pres (4/1), Ballyart (9/2), Colonel Keating (9/2), Inspireus (5/1), Bact To Black (6/1), Fenlons Court (13/2), Clondaw Ace (8/1), Chain Smoker (10/1), General Malarkey (25/1)

Verdict

BALLYART wears first-time cheekpieces which could sharpen him up enough to land the spoils having run well for a long way when fourth at Bangor last time. Top weight Colonel Keating is not out of it if fit but has stamina to prove and his stable is going through a lean spell. Fenlons Court is open to a little improvement, and of the rest, Chain Smoker might surprise for a yard that has done well here over the years.
