15:00 Plumpton Mon 2 December 2019
Is on a losing stretch which dates back to December 2013 when he scored at Kempton (2m). His last two appearances have come over fences, including latest when he was sixth of seven at Ffos Las (2m). Down to a career low mark now. Worth considering.
Was successful twice on the Flat but is 0-8 over hurdles. He did hit the frame on his last outing at Wincanton (1m7½f), albeit 29L off the winner. Has been eased 2lb by the handicapper. One for the shortlist.
Her sole victory to date came over this C&D back in September 2018. Although her form has been largely poor since then, she was much better last time when she came back fourth of 10 on her return to this C&D. Has each-way claims.
Scored at Fontwell (2m5½f) as a novice in April 2016 but has really struggled over the last couple of years. He had just one rival behind him on his latest outing at Uttoxeter (2m) in a 15 runner field. Hard to fancy.
Remains a maiden after 10 starts. He was third of 10 on his seasonal reappearance at Huntingdon (2m3½f) but then was pulled up on his latest run at Huntingdon (2m4f). Needs to bounce back from his last outing but he shouldn't be ignored.
Is still looking for his first success after 21 attempts. Was pulled up last time at Market Rasen (2m2½f) just before the 7th hurdle. Needs to produce much more to gain his opening victory on the track.
Was a comfortable winner at Hereford last time over 2m where the margin of victory was 6L, causing a suprise as a 40/1 outsider. Has been raised 6lb for that success but there may be more to come. Leading contender to follow up.
Came very close to his opening success over hurdles last time at Market Rasen (2m½f) when he was third of 11, beaten by a neck on what was his first run for his new yard. Has gone up just 2lb. One to consider.
A two-time C&D winner but his last success was in January 2017. Failed to finish at this course on his latest effort over 2m3½f as he was pulled up just before the third hurdle from home. Needs to improve.
