811-4OR: 147D
11/8

Made a winning return to action when she scored at Market Rasen (3m) in a Listed contest earlier this month. She is stepping down in trip here but she has won over this distance. One to beat.

911-4OR: 141C
2/1

Prevailed in a Listed race two starts ago at Perth (3m) where, despite a couple of jumping errors, she was successful by 4L in an eight runner field. Came back last of four on her latest effort over this C&D. Should be able to bounce back.

Was successful twice over hurdles. She made her chase debut over this C&D earlier this month where she was third of five runners. Will need to take a big step forward here at this level to be in the mix.

Broke her maiden over fences at Killarney (2m5f) back in May but has been unable to follow that up since. She was sixth of eight on her latest attempt at Roscommon (2m7½f). Set for first run for new yard here. Others appeal more.

Scored at Wetherby (2m5½f) for her first chase success back in February. Has been well held in two runs since, including on latest appearance at Wincanton (2m5½f) when she was 10th of 14 over hurdles. Back over fence again. Can't discount.

Betting

Forecast

Atlanta Ablaze (11/8), My Old Gold (2/1), Kalahari Queen (3/1), Holly Flight (16/1), Hidden Dilemma (25/1)

Verdict

ATLANTA ABLAZE has a good record over fences and she was successful on her seasonal reappearance at Market Rasen last time out. The mare sets the standard here and is the one to beat as she looks to follow up over this shorter trip. My Old Gold is likely to come on for her opening run of the season at Carlisle so expect to see her in contention at the finish against her own sex, while Kalahari Queen is worth giving a lot of respect on her return to fences.
