5/1

Three-time course winner (all over 2m) having only finished outside of the top two once here (over an inadequate trip). Proved better than ever last time going down narrowly over C&D after an eight-month break; sure to go well again.

5/1

C&D winner who had worked his way back to his best on that occasion; lightly-raced since he ran respectably over this trip at Chelmsford last time (didn't get the clearest of runs). Ought to go well on his return to Fibresand off that performance.

7/1

Three of his four wins this year have come on this surface but all over shorter trips; yet to try a test such as this. Just 1lb above his last winning mark but hasn't on recent starts looked in the same fettle as he did when winning; more needed.

Often seen at his best on Fibresand (31211) resuming winning ways over 2m here last time to win with a bit in hand. Up 5lb and brought back to a shorter trip he doesn't look handicapped out of this; should again go close on a beloved surface.

7/1

A winner at Leicester back in September (1m2f, good/firm) cashing in on a much reduced mark he's not looked the easiest rides in his subsequent starts. Never a threat on his only Fibresand start; now tried in a headgear combination, others preferred.

8/1

Fibresand debutant whose two wins so far both came on turf over this trip. Given a chance by the handicapper of late his recent form has been rather in-and-out with one of his better effort coming last time when attempting to make all at Chelmsford.

20/1

In good form off lowly marks earlier in the season winning on turf/Tapeta at up to 2m. Ran respectably over 1m6f last time at Chelmsford (needed a stronger gallop); Fibresand debut in a new headgear combination, can be slow away, limited appeal.

5/1

Irish raider from a well-respected yard; has won here before over 1m off this same mark. Not been in much form of late including when running well below market expectations at Wolverhampton; steps up markedly in trip, note for positive market vibes.

16/1

Still a maiden after 16 Flat starts, now makes her Fibresand debut on the back of some less than inspiring efforts although to be fair she's not had things go her way recently. Underperformed last time out though, hard to see her breaking her maiden.

100/1

Little impact in any sphere that she's raced in having already been tried in bumpers/over hurdles (last time out) and on the Flat (turf). Now makes her Fibresand/handicap debut but hard to make any sort of solid case for her.

48-8OR: 46
28/1

Fibresand newcomer whose form so far marks her down as a modest maiden faring poorly on her most recent start at Lingfield after a nine-week absence. Hard to see her making much of an impression here even off a basement mark.

Betting

Forecast

Tynecastle Park (5/1), Earl Of Bunnacurry (5/1), Heron (5/1), Thahab Ifraj (6/1), Cold Harbour (7/1), Sea Of Mystery (7/1), Bill Cody (8/1), Konigin (16/1), Extreme Appeal (20/1), Dancing Lilly (28/1), Montelimar (100/1)

Verdict

The course record of Thahab Ifraj presents a compelling case especially as he won on his latest start here but he’s up in grade here and off a higher mark so will need to produce a little more to win again. That’s not to say he can’t but TYNECASTLE PARK another three-time course winner showed how effective he is on this surface last time and that recent run will have been needed off a break and he’s likely to have come on for it. That duo stand out in this despite there being other course winners like Heron, Cold Harbour and Earl Of Bunnacurry who steps up in trip but any market positivity should be respected. Sea Of Mystery comes from a stable that do well here but looks to have his quirks.
