7/2

Much improved when last seen over hurdles on good ground in the spring at Plumpton, following up a 6L win with better effort when finding only a vastly improved rival too good. Fit from the Flat and more to come in this sphere.

Returned from a break in good heart and having been beaten a short-head on the Flat last month, gained compensation with smooth 4L win on good to soft ground at Huntingdon last week over this trip. More to come with stable enjoying a good spell.

Finished last season with creditable second over fences but form over the smaller obstacles wasn't as good, and although down in grade has needed his first run back from a break in the past and others preferred.

Has hit form of late over further with pair of seconds over 3m. Stayed on well on both occasions so drop in trip not sure to be in her favour and up another 5lb for Huntingdon effort.

Poor form last season but hinted at bit better on Uttoxeter comeback last month when staying on from the rear over 2m to finish 18L fifth of 15. Step up in trip may help and should have more to come.

Third over 2m1f at Exeter last spring was only piece of worthwhile form and failed to build on that in two attempts since. Needs to improve to play a role.

Long standing maiden who found drop down to 2m against him when last seen. Runner-up twice last season but has had plenty of chances and others make more appeal.

No sign of ability in bumpers or hurdles at huge prices and impossible to make a case for on evidence to date.

Was in the process of running well when falling three out at Taunton in April on first run for this yard but ran poorly on two subsequent starts and something to prove now.

Moderate form to date and no impact on handicap debut when midfield at Exeter on latest. Swerved and unseated rider on previous run and temperament under suspicion.

Poor form at big prices all starts over hurdles and first-time hood tried today needs to have a positive effect.

Has shown nothing in eight tries over hurdles at various trips and impossible to make a case for on all known evidence.

Showed a modicum of ability on occasions last season. Entitled to come on for Chepstow reappearance but does have stamina to prove and others have more obvious claims.

Sole win was gained in 2017 and not running well enough at present to suggest she is near doubling her tally from 9lb out of the weights.

Betting

Forecast

Methag (13/8), Age Of Wisdom (7/2), Sienna Royale (4/1), Our Nest Egg (6/1), Zee Man (10/1), The Mighty Ash (11/1), Ermyn's Emerald (14/1), Broke Away (16/1), No No Tonic (20/1), With Pleasure (20/1), Shanroe Smooch (25/1), Lady Wethered (25/1), True Thoughts (33/1), Flow With Eve (50/1), Starlit Night (66/1), Galtee Mountain (66/1)

Verdict

Any market interest for Zee Man or With Pleasure should be noted but METHAG won with a bit in hand at Huntingdon last week and could be up to defying the penalty. Sienna Royale bumped into an improving type on her first run for this stable last time and along with Age Of Wisdom could be the main threats.
