1111-12OR: 98D
3/1

Veteran who has got back to form when placed on both starts for his current yard, travelling best but outbattled at Musselburgh last time. Last win came under this rider, and he must be of interest.

11/4

Built on the promise of his previous start when winning a C&D handicap last time by 3¼L from That's My Dubai. Up 6lb for winning what was a modest affair, so needs more, but respected given he's in form.

10/1

Successful here last season, but has run just respectably on his last two starts having been soundly beaten on his return minus the usual tongue strap. Cheekpieces added now, and needs to step up.

Now 2lb lower than winning over fences at Southwell (3m) in August, but she has run badly in three starts since, and fared only marginally better returned to hurdles last time.

9/1

Has been beaten by wide margins on all five starts this season, and cheekpieces have had no obvious effect the last twice. Has dropped to the mark off which he landed a gamble at Newcastle in the spring, though, so a market check is essential.

28/1

Sprung a shock at Uttoxeter in December 2018, but that effort very much a standout, and he was well beaten twice later in the season. Resumes still 5lb above his winning mark, and is entitled to need this outing.

Fair fourth in a 2m1f handicap hurdle here in November, but well held next time over same trip, and then swerved and unseated her rider at the first at Catterick last time. Questions to answer after that wayward effort.

40/1

C&D winner in March 2018 off 2lb higher, but beaten 30L when fifth in this contest a year ago, and has not raced since, so makes very little appeal.

710-0OR: 72
9/4

Well held on first two starts this season, but hinted at a revival when fifth of 13 to Honourmission over C&D last time. Needs to build on that, but not dismissed out of hand.

Has hinted at ability in this sphere, but has been beaten a long way on both handicap starts at Newcastle, and is out of the handicap here. Plenty to prove.

810-0OR: 71WS
20/1

Runner-up in a point-to-point, but he has not beaten a single rival since starting out under rules in March 2018. Comes here having had wind surgery since last seen, and he may do better in handicaps, but the risks are obvious enough.

Betting

Forecast

Bertie Blake (9/4), Honourmission (11/4), Titus Bolt (3/1), Ex S'elance (9/1), Canny Style (10/1), Clondaw Fixer (20/1), Oliver's Island (28/1), Kildaven Spider (33/1), Madam Scully (40/1), Dolly's Dot (40/1), Jo Cashflow (40/1)

Verdict

Titus Bolt and Honourmission arrive in good form and merit respect as a result, but the claims of both will not be missed by the market, and a left-field suggestion is EX S'ELANCE, who landed a gamble out of the blue in the spring, and has fallen back to his winning mark after some lacklustre efforts this term. He could well bounce back, while Clondaw Fixer is another outsider who has the raw ability to go well on handicap debut if a breathing operation has had the desired result.
