7/1

Victorious at Exeter good-to-soft ground in twice last campaign and finished a decent 12L second upped to an extended 3m1f at Ffos Las (heavy) on last month's seasonal debut. Leading contender off a mark 6lb higher than for his most recent victory.

10/1

Nine-race maiden, last of six on chase debut at Southwell (3m, soft; 9-1) last sporting first-time cheekpieces (retained) on first start after wind surgery. Likely to be playing minor role again on form.

8/1

Now 12-years-old and no wins since scoring late in 2018. Out of form since arriving with this trainer and pulled up at Warwick on New Year's Eve on first run after wind operation.

4/1

Course winner in April over 3m2f, his only success from 12 so far over fences. Some pleasing efforts in defeats this season, but this trip looks to be on the sharp side.

16/1

Formerly trained in Ireland; 0-10 over fences and well held on stable bow at Southwell (2m4½f, heavy; 5-1). Possibly sharper for that run but will have to jump better.

Frontrunner, has three wins over fences (all over longer trips); hasn't been sighted since May 2018 and a teenager now making first foray for latest trainer. Market check.

50-1 chance but outran those odds when second in handicap at Warwick on New Year's Eve over 2m. Place claims against with a repeat effort.

810-2OR: 76
9/2

Modest sort, scored over similar trip on testing ground at Lingfield in November and perhaps not suited since over much longer trips. Wouldn't discount and just 2lb above that winning mark.

610-0OR: 74

11-race maiden, well beaten on all starts so far, three of them over fences this season. Needs to take a big step forward having been pulled up at Taunton latest.

Very modest sort to date and rarely threatening to win at the moment; including a 51L defeat over extended 2m7f here this month. Others better placed.

Fourth in the Warwick race Dun Bay Creek was second in on New Year's Eve, having previously scored from low mark at Stratford. 2lb out of the handicap here and needs more to get in the frame.

15-race maiden, pulled up on reappearance at Ffos Las (2m5f, soft; 50-1) in November and from 9lb out of the handicap she makes limited appeal here.

Betting

Forecast

Dont Be Robin (4/1), Kingston Mimosa (9/2), Sustainable Star (5/1), Ruffling Feathers (6/1), Sonoftheking (13/2), Tudors Treasure (7/1), Flaming Charmer (8/1), Bee Crossing (10/1), Jimmyjames (16/1), Dun Bay Creek (16/1), St Merryn (20/1), General Girling (33/1), Monet Moor (50/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these with questions to answer but not so TUDORS TREASURE, seeking to win for the third time in his last four over fences. He was second to Lac Sacre at Ffos Las last month on his seasonal bow, form that could be boosted when the winner runs earlier on this card, and has been eased 1lb following that first run since April. This short trip is also in his favour. Dun Bay Creek and Kingston Mimosa are worth of some each-way interest.
