611-10OR: 115BF
3/1

Been doing well at this level for much of the summer/autumn and although a beaten favourite at Fakenham last time, it was still a decent effort against a course specialist. Clear chance of getting back to winning ways in a weak event.

13/8

Would drop this lot from a great height on the best of his form for Gordon Elliott but a string of pulled-up efforts leave you wondering what he's actually capable of these days. Takes a big drop in grade but that alone not really enough.

11/8

Placed on his last five starts, so at least shows consistency, but that form is at a basement level in handicaps and it requires improvement if he's to topple Skeaping here. Nevertheless, should be taking some more prizemoney home,

410-12OR: 89
33/1

Four starts over hurdles so far, not disgraced on debut but it's all unravelled rather quickly and he looked less than cooperative at Plumpton in a selling hurdle last time. Makes very little appeal here.

Betting

Forecast

Clearly Capable (11/8), Blow By Blow (13/8), Skeaping (3/1), Handsome Bob (33/1)

Verdict

They wouldn't see which way Blow By Blow went if he ever recaptured anything like his best form, and this is a welcome step down in grade for him, but what he's actually capable of in terms of form these days is now open to a lot of questions. At some point SKEAPING's busy schedule will catch up with him but he looks by far the likeliest winner here. He remains in good form and should be winning this. Clearly Capable looks most likely to take advantage should the favourite fail to fire.
