511-12OR: 105BFC
9/2

Course winner whose stable aren't exactly on fire at the moment although he did show improved form post wind op to shed his maiden tag over 2m5f here last month (enterprising ride). Not disgraced under a penalty soon after; should remain competitive.

12/1

Not the easiest to win with and comes hereof the back of a lengthy absence having shaped as if amiss when last seen. Slipped back down to his last winning mark; stable are in form, market could well provide some clues as to expectations.

511-7OR: 100
10/1

Modest form when trained in Ireland and hasn't shown an awful lot more since his switch to GB and this stable in two starts over fences. Produced a laboured effort last time out (failed to cope with conditions); mark falling but more needed.

Zara Hopeb1,t169
811-5OR: 98C
7/1

Dual hurdles winner when with Charlie Longsdon she's not gone without some promise in three chase starts for two different yards including her current one. Below form when last seen at Worcester, returns from a short break that may have rejuvenated.

Could hardly be given more chance by the handicapper having started the year off mark of over 100. Stopped the slide in the handicap over C&D last time in this headgear combination; well handicapped but not sure to build on his last effort.

610-4OR: 83
7/1

Yet to win a race but did show a modicum of promise when sent chasing at Warwick in April (better than finishing position suggests). Returned after seven months off on the back of a wind op; failed to handle conditions at Hexham; may yet do better.

No banker to build on his chasing debut but that outing at Newcastle did at least hold some promise in this headgear combination. Finished fourth having looked to need the outing; this run should reveal a little more of his true worth.

1210-0OR: 78CD
16/1

Dual C&D winner who is more generally seen at Warwick but can't these days be described as anything more than modest with a predilection for being a very hard ride. Now approaching the veteran stage; he'll far too moody to recommend.

13/2

6lb out the weights means that he's already given himself a hard task and its not as if he's a frequent winner. Usually positively ridden he's likely to be taken on upfront here and his jumping (not usually without blemish) will be under pressure.

Betting

Forecast

Cavalry Scout (4/1), Sigurd (9/2), Tanrudy (9/2), Midnight Mustang (13/2), Zara Hope (7/1), Mid Day Gun (7/1), Pakie's Dream (10/1), Running Wolf (12/1), The Last Bridge (16/1)

Verdict

He pace scenario looks a relatively strong one with a few of these especially course winner Tanrudy likely to go forward although his yard are rather struggling for winners at the moment. All in all this isn’t an easy race to assess and a surprise maybe on the cards two of those that could supply a shock result are CAVALRY SCOUT and Mid Day Gun both of whom don’t have rock-solid credentials but have shown some promise over fences and may not have been handicapped out of this as yet. Zara Hope is another who could get involved if she bounces back to her initial chasing efforts whilst last year’s winning trainer Joanne Foster saddles Sigurd who will make use of his lowly mark sooner or later.
