611-12OR: 124D

Runner-up on four occasions since winning at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in May 2018; ran well without seeing out the trip on seasonal reappearance at Sandown (2m4f, heavy).

13/8

Fortunate when making a winning debut for this trainer here (2m3½f, heavy) last month but doubled-up over this trip a week later (under his stand-in rider Racheal Kneller) beating Flaminger by 10L; 4lb higher seeking a hat-trick.

Generally speaking wasn't at his best for Sophie Leech earlier in the year and has moved onto David Pipe as a result; operates fine under these conditions; is probably worth a market check in a newly fitted tongue-tie.

11lb higher than when winning over an extended 2m3f on this card 12 months ago (heavy) - beat Max Do Brazil by 15L; well beaten third on seasonal reappearance a fortnight ago.

11lb higher than when scoring by 19L at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) in February; finished a mildly respectable sixth (beaten 11½L) to Mr Scrumpy on seasonal reappearance at Wetherby (2m3½f, soft) last month; drops back in trip.

9/1

Won in the mud at Sandown (2m, heavy) last December and broadly consistent thereafter - rider failed to weigh-in when finishing third over C&D in January; 2lb lower than for his recent comeback run.

Won twice for Chris Gordon at Fontwell (hurdles and fences) in January; weakened from two out when finishing in excess of 33L sixth of ten to Kenny George on seasonal reappearance (Fontwell, 2m3f).

Betting

Forecast

Ruacana (13/8), Bonne Question (11/2), The Gipper (11/2), Hier Encore (7/1), Shaw's Cross (9/1), Nelson's Touch (9/1), Deebaj (12/1), Ghost Serge (16/1), Sky Full Of Stars (50/1)

Verdict

Plenty of those declared are seeking to build positively upon their recent comeback runs, and in truth there isn't an obvious standout contender from that particular cohort. Meanwhile, last year's winner The Gipper sports cheekpieces on his return from wind surgery. Therefore, the risk-free option is the hat-trick seeking RUACANA who made plenty of headlines when winning for late stand-in rider Racheal Kneller over C&D (heavy) a fortnight ago.
