711-12OR: 130BF
12/1

Improved over hurdles but yet to fire since being switched to the bigger obstacles. Jumping let him down before being severely hampered by faller over C&D last time out and chase handicap mark looks high enough.

811-10OR: 128
14/1

Capable performer over intermediate trips for Nigel Twiston-Davies before losing his way. Hasn't looked like changing that in two starts for this yard, including 18L last of 11 at Newbury (2m4f) last time. Back up drastically in trip.

18/1

Was in a fine vein of form over fences, winning three of his previous four starts before finding 5lb higher mark too tough in handicap chase at Cheltenham (3m1f) last month. Off same mark but this is easier and claimer takes off 5lb.

6/1

Usually tends to run to his mark and got back to winning ways by making it two wins in two years in 2m5f Stratford handicap chase last month. Up to career-high mark now so handicapper isn't taking chances.

811-3OR: 121
12/1

0-7 over fences and another wind op didn't reap out rewards when 38L seventh in 2m4f Carlisle handicap chase. Easily watched at the moment on current form.

Dual winner last year but form subsequently tailed off and showed very little when beaten 45L on seasonal debut at Wetherby (2m3f) earlier this month. Bounce back required now.

710-8OR: 105
1/2

Useful chaser in the past who has seen a mini-revival on past two starts, finishing close third before 13L victory at Southwell (3m, heavy) this month. 7lb higher but dangerous off a light weight.

Betting

Forecast

Very First Time (1/2), One Forty Seven (6/1), Jack Devine (12/1), Knockrobin (12/1), Templehills (14/1), Mr Mafia (18/1), Manwell (20/1)

Verdict

MR MAFIA could be set to bounce back to winning ways in this contest. Despite pulling up last time, that is typically a hot handicap chase for its level and gets a hefty advantage with a promising claimer on board. His main rival is likely to be Very First Time, who is running out of his skin recently but the hike in the weights suggests the handicapper is taking no chances, while the same can be said for One Forty Seven, despite the impressive nature of his victory last time.
  1. Mr Mafia
  2. Very First Time
  3. One Forty Seven
