13/2

Good ground winner over 3m1f here in October and not disgraced in two runs over fences since though 10lb higher than his win now. No show over hurdles last week could bounce back now.

Age: 7|  Weight: 11-10  |  J: Jonjo O'Neill Jr. |  T: Jonjo O'Neill|  OR: 98|  BF
3/1

Off the mark at Worcester in September and probably ran up to that form when third behind a subsequent winner at Huntingdon since. Stable having a fine run and does look ready for this longer trip.

Age: 10|  Weight: 11-8  |  J: J E Moore |  T: C Gordon|  OR: 96
12/1

Yet to get off the mark over fences and very disappointing at Plumpton last time having showed much more on previous run there. Hard to predict and needs to eke out improvement.

4
Age: 14|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: Nick Scholfield |  T: J G Cann|  OR: 93
40/1

Veteran who rattled off a hat-trick in early 2018 but lightly raced and not in the same form since. Runner-up five times here but would like to see more before getting involved.

Age: 8|  Weight: 10-13  |  J: R M Power |  T: C L Tizzard|  OR: 87|  BF|  CD
3/1

Wide margin winner of this race last year on good ground and only 3lb higher today. Found the heavy ground too much for her on Lingfield comeback but conditions in her favour here and looks a major contender.

Age: 8|  Weight: 10-13  |  J: Bryony Frost |  T: J D Frost|  OR: 87
11/2

Only form under Rules when runner-up here in October though well below that form only run since. Hopes rest on returning here but others make more obvious appeal.

7
Age: 7|  Weight: 10-6  |  J: Rex Dingle |  T: P Gundry|  OR: 80
6/1

Found the drop down to 2m5f against him on latest and although the handicapper has given him a chance at this longer trip he needs to improve to make an impact on overall form.

8
Age: 7|  Weight: 10-4  |  J: Adam Wedge |  T: Alexandra Dunn|  OR: 78
9/1

Has been virtually tailed off on all starts including chasing debut at Huntingdon last month and hopes rest on this dramatic step up in distance bringing huge improvement.

9
Age: 8|  Weight: 10-0  |  J: Tabitha Worsley |  T: Georgie Howell|  OR: 70
40/1

Her Southwell fifth over hurdles in the summer offered something to work on and chase debut can be forgiven on bad ground. Could be open to some improvement over the larger obstacles on this better ground and worth noting in market.

10
Age: 10|  Weight: 10-0  |  J: Edward Austin |  T: Nick Lampard|  OR: 63
28/1

Poor maiden who was tailed off on recent comeback run and hard to fancy from 11lb out of the handicap.

Betting

Forecast

Phoenix Rock (3/1), Lizzie Langton (3/1), This Breac (11/2), Mauna Kea (6/1), Love The Leader (13/2), Westerner Ocean (9/1), Hit The Highway (12/1), Minmore Grey (28/1), Betterlatethanneva (40/1), How's My Friend (40/1)

Verdict

LIZZIE LANGTON took this in style last year and with that comeback run on unsuitable ground under her belt looks primed to follow up at the expense of Phoenix Rock who has shaped on occasions as though this longer trip will be a help. Love The Leader has been busy of late and is his schedule hasn't caught up with him, may do best of the rest.
  1. Lizzie Langton
  2. Phoenix Rock
  3. Love The Leader
