611-12OR: 150WS
11/1

Decent handicap hurdler who won on his first two starts for this trainer at Sandown in the spring of 2018. Held by Paisley Park when last seen at Ascot in December, but no disgrace in that, and could still make his presence felt back in a handicap.

Grade 3 winner over hurdles when 10lb lower (2m7½f, soft) in February, but handicapper appears to have had his measure since.

Won four times for Nicky Henderson, including a Grade 3 Ascot handicap over a similar trip in January 2018. 5lb lower than that for this stable debut, which comes after wind surgery. Check market for confidence. Tongue-tie goes on.

Has returned nicely from wind surgery, going close at Plumpton before winning over that same C&D (2m4½f, heavy) last time. Up 7lb for that, but still looks well treated and should be a big player.

Dual Haydock winner over 2m3f on testing ground two years ago. Has over a year off and ran with credit back there on his only hurdles run since (well held on Flat). Back on a competitive mark, though stable quiet.

Well treated here on his best chase form, though was well held from just 3lb higher back over hurdles last time, and others push stronger cases.

Dual Hereford hurdle winner (2m3½f, soft) last winter. Ran well on his reappearance in a Sandown handicap, for which he has gone up 4lb. Still open to improvement and an each-way player.

Was a useful novice last season at around this trip. No disgrace in being thrashed by stablemate Champ when last seen at Aintree in April. Interesting recruit to handicaps from this mark and looks open to further progress. Contender.

Acts on soft and gets this trip, but looks weighted up to the hilt at present and has an each-way chance at best.

20/1

Won the Grade 2 mares' novices' hurdle final here over C&D (good to soft) in March 2017. Won again on only start since, at Auteuil later that year. Has 26-month absence to overcome, but would be a player if retaining that ability.

9/1

Beaten just a neck by Grade 1 winner Reserve Tank in a Kempton novices' contest (2m5f, good to soft) in March. Facile success in a five-runner Ffos Las event in July. Goes well fresh and very much one to consider from this mark.

710-5OR: 129BFD
20/1

Dual novice hurdle winner who has not yet scored in four handicap attempts. Held from 1lb higher on his reappearance. Could give him a chance on his Wincanton run in March, but others look more solid.

Impressed when dotting up in a novices' hurdle here (2m½f, good) in January. Yet to get to grips with handicaps in the face of a couple of stiff tasks, but this also looks far from easy. Tongue-tied for first time.

Plumpton maiden hurdle winner (2m4½f, soft) last December, but well held by Dan McGrue back there last time. Needs improvement, but no denying he has each-way potential.

12/1

Triple Flat winner who is 0-9 over hurdles. Has proved himself competitive from this sort of mark, despite that maiden status, and he is another who can't be ruled out of each-way calculations.

12/1

Very useful bumper horse who took a few runs to come to hand after a lengthy absence. Rediscovered his 'mojo' with an 8L success in a Market Rasen class 4 handicap last time. Up 13lb for that, but not ruled out up in class under a feather weight.

Betting

Forecast

Downtown Getaway (15/8), Star Of Lanka (6/1), Mr Pumblechook (8/1), The Cashel Man (9/1), Dan McGrue (9/1), Soul Emotion (11/1), Pride Of Lecale (12/1), Nordic Combined (12/1), Howling Milan (20/1), Snow Leopardess (20/1), Silver Kayf (20/1), Peter The Mayo Man (25/1), Lord Napier (33/1), Jenkins (33/1), Coeur Blimey (33/1), Man Of Plenty (33/1), Limited Reserve (50/1)

Verdict

Another intriguing contest in prospect here. Soul Emotion and The Cashel Man are both of interest for the Seven Barrows team, but stablemate DOWNTOWN GETAWAY looks a potential handicap blot here and is taken to score. Dan McGrue looks a threat to the Henderson trio, while Pride Of Lecale and Star Of Lanka are others of interest. Snow Leopardess may need this after such an absence, but support for her would suggest she is ready to do herself justice first time back.
