611-4OR: 135D
13/8

Useful hurdler that has made a solid start to chasing career, runner-up on both occasions and only just denied after trying to make all at Exeter last time; repeat of that alone surely takes him close, and has to be on the shortlist.

711-4OR: D
12/1

Three times a point-to-point winner this year, and had the useful pointer Rob The Getaway beaten when that one fell at Bangor last time out; rather in at the deep end on Rules debut here and probably best watched, but clearly has some ability.

711-4OR: 140D
4/1

Useful hurdler, often highly tried throughout his career and came back to something like his best when successful in a competitive event at Cheltenham last time; has the scope for fences and an interesting recruit to the sphere.

711-4OR: 118
8/1

Twice a winner over hurdles in the summer, has found life harder since but heavy ground a legitimate excuse last time; makes chasing debut today and needs improvement for it, but that's not impossible.

611-4OR: 137BF
2/1

Solid form as a novice hurdler and made a good start to chasing career when third to Poker Play at Ffos Las last month; will certainly appreciate the step up in trip and likely to improve on that, so has to be taken seriously here.

Betting

Forecast

Commodore Barry (13/8), Tidal Flow (2/1), Golan Fortune (4/1), Sizing At Midnight (8/1), Encounter A Giant (12/1)

Verdict

TIDAL FLOW didn't do a lot wrong when third to the useful Poker Play at Ffos Las on his chase debut but this step up in trip should see him in an even better light, and he can score at the expense of Commodore Barry, who looks sure to try and take these from start to finish, and Golan Fortune, who came back to form at Cheltenham last time out and could easily make an impression on his chase debut today.
