15/2

Successful twice earlier this year including over 3m in a Listed handicap chase at Ascot (good-to-soft) in February. Pulled up in a Grade 3 handicap chase at Cheltenham (3m1f, soft) and is an interesting runner down in grade on seasonal debut.

9/4

Stepped up on seasonal debut effort when finishing a neck second in a handicap chase over an extended 3m3f at Fontwell (soft) last month. Raised 3lb for that effort and is a leading contender for a top yard.

Winner of his first three starts over fences but missed last season and was beaten 27L when ninth at Ascot (3m, good-to-soft) on his return from a break early last month. Cheekpieces tried for the first time.

11/2

C&D winner and registered a victory over an extended 3m1f at Plumpton (good-to-soft) in March. Visor worn for the first time that day failed to work next time and he makes his seasonal debut off a mark 4lb higher than for that latest success.

11/2

Triumphed by 3¾L in first time blinkers (retained since) in a handicap chase over 3m on good ground at Exeter in October. Pulled up on soft going over the same C&D subsequently and needs to return to form to take this event.

7/1

Returned to fences with a 1¾L third in a handicap chase over 3m at Ffos Las (soft) in April. Races off a 2lb higher mark here and is worth a check in the market on seasonal reappearance.

66/1

Point-to-point winner has failed to figure in five starts under Rules most recently when 81L sixth in a beginners' chase at Exeter (2m3f, soft) last month. Others make more appeal back up in trip racing from out of the weights on handicap debut.

Betting

Forecast

Captain Cattistock (9/4), Acting Lass (3/1), Another Venture (11/2), Golden Sunrise (11/2), Looks Like Power (7/1), Calipto (15/2), Noruki (66/1)

Verdict

CAPTAIN CATTISTOCK represents a top yard and he can go one better than when finishing runner-up on his most recent start. The selection has the ground and trip both to suit and he can see off his rivals with Calipto, who is dropping in grade on his seasonal reappearance capable of finishing runner-up ahead of Another Venture who is also making his first start of the campaign.
  1. Captain Cattistock
  2. Calipto
  3. Another Venture
