811-12OR: 120
11/1

Very well-treated over fences from a mark of 120 if able to recapture the form shown for Ruth Jefferson at Haydock (2m3f, good) in May 2018; plausible excuses last season (with the then troubled Donald McCain); market helpful.

911-11OR: 119C
11/4

Useful hurdler (and dual Newcastle bumper scorer); arguably hasn't fulfilled his potential over fences - rated 6lb lower than when finishing third to Skipthescales on chasing debut here (3m) last December; made mistakes on Kelso comeback run.

811-6OR: 114C
11/2

Won on chasing debut at Catterick (2m3f, good) last November, but things have gone rather pear-shaped since (0-5); further eased in the weights for seasonal reappearance and is a heavy ground course hurdles scorer (at 2m).

811-4OR: 112
22/1

Returned to form with back-to-back wins over 3m in Market Rasen and Hexham in August/September (on good ground); flaky since, including over hurdles at Aintree (3m, soft) latest; others make considerably more appeal.

611-2OR: 110D
6/1

Best served by a test of stamina on soft ground (a 2m4f Hexham novice hurdle winner) and has always looked to be a future chaser; thankfully rose from a heavy fall (was beaten at the time) at Kelso three weeks ago; cheekpieces now applied.

911-1OR: 109D
10/1

6-26 over fences but has generally struggled for form since finishing second to Willie Boy at Wetherby (2m3½f, good to soft) on Boxing Day - now sits 10lb below his last winning mark; stablemate of Robbing The Prey.

810-12OR: 106
6/1

Took time to get his act together over hurdles although admittedly was on the up in that sphere in early 2019; flashed his tail when in full control on chasing debut at Carlisle (2m5f, heavy) in March; is now rated 9lb higher.

1010-4OR: 98CD
7/2

Effective at this track; travelled smoothly into contention and delivered the goods over C&D (heavy) a fortnight ago - beat My Manekineko by 2¾L; there's no obvious reason as to why he shouldn't run well off a 4lb higher mark.

Betting

Forecast

Western Rules (11/4), Charlie Snow Angel (7/2), Reverant Cust (11/2), Stoney Rover (6/1), Up Helly Aa King (6/1), Oak Vintage (10/1), Robbing The Prey (11/1), What's The Scoop (12/1), King Golan (22/1)

Verdict

Many have questions to answer, including the selection ROBBING THE PREY so it'll come as no surprise if the recent C&D winner Charlie Snow Angel proves strong in the market. His chance is a clear and obvious one, while there's also the strong likelihood that the returning Up Helly Aa King has plenty more to offer over fences for the Perthshire-trainer Nick Alexander. However, now in the care of Phil Kirby, the top-weight is undeniably well handicapped (from a mark of 120) on historic form for Ruth Jefferson. Although his more recent form for Donald McCain (9U42P) makes for modest reading, that stable were unfortunate to suffer issues with equine flu in early 2019.
