711-12OR: 153BFD

Held every chance when falling two out in the BetVictor Gold Cup last time after some indifferent leaps. He won impressively in novice company the time before and back in calmer waters here; tries 3m for the first time since pointing success.

711-2OR: D

Won an Irish point on debut in January 2017 (soft) and cost £60,000 for connections. Returned from 22-month absence when pulling up at Carlisle (2m3½f, soft) in a novices' hurdle. Yard been quiet in recent weeks and best watched for now.

511-2OR: 129C

Unbeaten in two runs here (bumper/hurdle) and ran well at Newbury and Cheltenham in recent starts in handicap company. Pulled up early on in a Grade 3 contest at Haydock (3m½f) two weeks ago and now makes his chasing debut.

711-2OR: D

Brings a record of 3/7 in British points to this, his rules and chasing debut. Shouldn't have a problem with jumping or the trip but hard to know how that pointing form will translate to this race, given the ability of some of his rivals.

5
611-2OR: 122

Won twice over hurdles last season (2m4½f/2m7½f) but pulled up in three of his last four starts. Obviously not one to rely on but from a family of winning chasers (half-brother to Kayfleur) and may have more to offer on first chasing start.

611-2OR: 130

Showed good form last season, splitting two decent rivals on hurdling debut before winning easily at Fontwell (2m3½f). Half-brother to 3m1f winner whilst his dam was a bumper/hurdle/chase winner (2m-3m). Longer trip a plus and a fascinating runner.

Betting

Forecast

Slate House (2/5), Tarada (10/3), Breaking Waves (10/1), Sizing Cusimano (20/1), Encounter A Giant (25/1), Battys Dilemma (33/1)

Verdict

It has looked like SLATE HOUSE has begun to build on his early promise this season. This is significantly easier than last time out and whilst he has the best form, he will have to iron out the jumping errors that littered his latest run before he fell. Tarada showed a great deal of promise in three runs last season and he is bred to be a three-mile chaser. He is open to further improvement and is the danger to Slate House. Breaking Waves, meanwhile, has a good record here, has steadily improved in recent starts and has the ability to make a splash in this sphere.
