12/1

Smart sort a couple of years back but well out of sorts recently and not seen since tame effort in the Listed Summer Hurdle. Hard to fancy on current form.

5/1

Progressive last term with various victories, including C&D handicap hurdle but ran poorly in handicap hurdle at Cheltenham (2m) on seasonal debut. One to likely bounce back however.

Some encouraging efforts in the spring but ended time with Jane Williams with poor sixth at Newton Abbott (2m) in July. Best watched on first start for new yard.

Hasn't got his head in front over hurdles yet but running with respect of late. Solid third in Listed handicap hurdle at Ascot (2m) at the start of the month and replication of that puts him bang in the mix.

Yet to win but fair form in four hurdle outings to date. Not as good when sixth on handicap debut at Wincanton in March and looks a tad exposed now.

Bumper winner at this track before some solid efforts over C&D last season, including staying on third in March. Has had a wind op and every chance now going handicapping.

Some modest efforts but bombed out over fences last season, pulling up the last twice. Not seen in ten months and best watched on this reappearance effort.

Solid form for this stable, winning C&D event and at Hereford before sixth of 17 at Wincanton (2m) last month. Still in form but more needed against these rivals.

Last win came in 2016 and finished tailed off on seasonal debut at Fontwell (2m) last month. Easily opposable.

Betting

Forecast

Nordic Combined (5/2), Haldon Hill (9/2), Smarty Wild (5/1), Searching (6/1), Manvers House (7/1), Mount Rushmoore (7/1), John Constable (12/1), Sirop De Menthe (16/1), Peruvien Bleu (66/1)

Verdict

Preference is for NORDIC COMBINED, who ran an incredibly race to take third in a usually hot contest at Ascot last time out. He still looks on a competitive enough mark and could be one step ahead of the handicapper at this rate. Haldon Hill usually takes well to this course and there is every chance his wind operation could irk out more improvement in him, while the likes of Searching comes into this race in fine form but this represents another step up.
