1111-12OR: 120D
9/4

Without a win since July 2015, albeit did finish second (of 27) to Ultragold in the Grade 3 Topham Chase at Aintree (2m5f, heavy) in April 2018; 2lb lower than when 9L third to Eceparti (has won since) at Chepstow (2m3½f, soft) a fortnight ago.

4/1

10lb lower than when beaten a neck by Kilfilum Cross at Ludlow (3m, good) in February; arguably is working back to peak form and fitness following recent runs at Cheltenham (3m1) and Ludlow (3m1½f); drops back in trip.

11/1

Hacked up in a 2m4f novices' handicap chase at Carlisle (heavy) in April 2018 and was hit hard by the handicapper afterwards; raced keenly (weakened from three out) on recent comeback run at Newcastle (2m4f, heavy).

7/2

Off the track for 258-days since finishing fourth of ten (beaten 5L) to Inaminna at Chepstow (2m3½f, good to soft) in March; the race-fitness of this 2m course winner (on heavy) is taken on trust.

7/1

Won three on the bounce during the spring (2m2f-2m4f); has failed to sparkle since returning to the track at Fontwell in October and remains 6lb above his last winning mark; course form figures (mainly at 2m) read 2312.

Betting

Forecast

Shanahan's Turn (9/4), Tara Bridge (7/2), Uhlan Bute (4/1), Private Malone (5/1), Finnegan's Garden (7/1), Skipping On (11/1)

Verdict

It certainly wouldn't be spinning a yarn to say that it's been quite some considerable time since it was last Shanahan's Turn, but this veterans' chase presents an ideal winning opportunity for the Colin Tizzard-trained SHANAHAN'S TURN. His ability has never been in doubt (runner-up over the National Fences in the 2018 Topham) and his seasonal reappearance third to Eceparti at Chepstow a fortnight ago has already been boosted by the winner (followed up at Wetherby). The dropped in trip, and undoubtedly fairly weighted Uhlan Bute rates as a possible threat.
