611-6OR: 138D
2/5

Useful hurdler who made quite a taking transition to fences when taking a novices' handicap chase over 2m4f at Carlisle on his chasing debut. Jumped well and found plenty for pressure; open to further progress, useful staying chaser in the making.

28/1

Dual Irish point-to-point winner who has shaped well on a couple of occasions under Rules over hurdles first and then fences. Failed to make an impression when making his handicap chase debut last time off a stiff looking mark (pulled up).

Would have gone close in a decent handicap last time at Newcastle (2m7f) if he hadn't unseated his rider three out (yet to be asked for an effort). Produced some useful efforts over hurdles/fences, faces a stiff task, one to note back in handicaps.

5/2

Twice successful around here over hurdles in novice company he showed an awful lot more on his second chase start with his yard out of the doldrums. Faced a stiff task at Wetherby against two previous chase winners; has ability to make an impact.

Confirmed the promise that she had shown on her hurdles debut when taking a Limerick novice (2m3f) in April. Underperformed when last seen at Cork she's now makes her stable/GB/chase debut; looks to have a stiff task on hurdles ratings.

Forecast

Two For Gold (2/5), Aye Right (6/4), Coole Hall (5/2), Cairnshill (25/1), Gipsy Lee Rose (28/1), Ard Chros (28/1)

Verdict

A race that has a good record for those at the head of the market with the favourites winning five of the last seven renewals including the last three contests. It could well be tight for who goes off favourite here but there was a lot to like about the debut win of TWO FOR GOLD at Carlisle and he should appreciate this stiffer test. Aye Right making his chasing debut after already shaping well over hurdles this year is the main danger and if he repeats his fast and fluent hurdling over fences, he should be worth watching. Coole Hall took a step in the right direction at Wetherby against two superior rivals while Cairnshill isn’t written off despite having a tough task at the weights.
  1. Two For Gold
  2. Aye Right
  3. Coole Hall
