712-0OR: 107
6/1

Appeared to be on the up over fences (3m1½f Plumpton winner; heavy) before turning in a lousy effort (always in the rear) at Huntingdon five weeks ago; 7lb above that 'winning' mark; can't be ruled out of contention.

11/4

Kept on for pressure when finishing 3L third to Pres on chasing debut here (2m7½f, heavy) in November - that was a career best performance; much more modest at Leicester since; one of the likelier candidates in a weak race.

711-9OR: 102
11/2

17-race maiden (0-9 fences) who sports the dubious honour of newly applied cheekpieces; lacked any real fluency over his obstacles despite going down narrowly in a three-way tussle at Leicester (2m, gd/soft) in mid-December; chance.

13/2

Has hardly excelled in three starts over hurdles for Chris Gordon; from a family of chasers (a distant relation to Dublin Flyer) there could be better to come over the larger obstacles; a market watching/monitoring brief is advised.

3/1

Heavy ground Ffos Las bumper winner (on debut in December 2017); hasn't proved to be any great shakes over hurdles (0-7) so we'll simply elect to wait and see how he fares over fences (debut).

610-7OR: 86
7/1

Eight-race maiden; 17-2 when finishing almost 25L sixth (of eight) to Elite Garde on chasing debut at Leicester (2m6½f, good to soft); needs to do a whole lot better on this occasion in order to make his mark.

16/1

11-race maiden; outclassed (100-1) when a remote last of three on chasing debut at Plumpton (2m4f, soft) eight days ago; although out of the handicap proper, this is a much more realistic target; still can't be fancied.

510-0OR: 74
66/1

Has scarcely beaten a single rival in six previous starts (three bumpers and three novice/maiden hurdles); cheekpieces are applied on chasing debut; no chance barring accidents.

910-0OR: 65
66/1

Has more letters than numbers next to his name; has shown no worthwhile form since winning a 3m maiden at Howick (only two finished) in February 2019; needs a minor miracle; look elsewhere.

Betting

Forecast

Colonel Keating (11/4), Echo Watt (3/1), Flight To Milan (11/2), Crossley Tender (6/1), Moromac (13/2), Dorado Dollar (7/1), Impulsive Leader (16/1), Positive Touch (66/1), Bonne Nuit (66/1)

Verdict

A thoroughly unappealing novices' handicap chase in which the soundest advice is to take the widest of possible berths. However, there will be a winner so in that respect this is an opportunity for the connections of one of the nine declared runners. Crossley Tender appeared to be on the up prior to a lousy effort at Huntingdon, while the 17-race maiden Flight To Milan is unlikely to ever get a better chance of winning. However, for very small stakes we'll take a speculative tilt at the chasing newcomer MOROMAC. His trainer Chris Gordon is proficient with such horses and with a chasing background to his pedigree he could feasibly take the necessary step forward.
