Hints of a return to form last month finishing 1¾L adrift of Ragtime Red over 1m2½f at this track. Winner over C&D and could be of interest back near last winning mark.

Recently seen in a number of dismal efforts over hurdles the gelding was well held on sole start over C&D in October. Hard to make a case for.

Off the mark at the 11th attempt for connections when landing a 1m2½f at this track last month beating Turf Ranger a nose off a 2lb lower mark. Well held since and takes a big step up in trip here.

Not seen since July. The daughter of Footstepsinthesand was in reasonable form at this venue last winter winning over C&D in March off a 5lb lower mark. Looks to be up against it.

Popular veteran who is yet to hit the frame in seven starts at this venue. Difficult to see where improvement is coming from at his age.

20-race maiden but posted a decent effort over 1m2f in November finishing 6¼L adrift of Spelga. Never a factor over C&D last month and others preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Wild Shot (10/3), Paistiul (4/1), Monsieur Piquer (5/1), No Trouble (13/2), Comporta (13/2), Miss Louise (8/1), Rockview Roman (8/1), Anfaass (14/1), Followme Followyou (16/1), Solar Heat (16/1), Crystal Pool (20/1), Cherryville (20/1), Red Vermillion (33/1), Allora Yeats (33/1), Misty Mountain (40/1), Glenbank King (50/1), Duquesa Beach (66/1)

Verdict

The Noel Kelly-trained WILD SHOT can get back to winning ways to land his fifth win at this track and a second win over C&D. The six-year-old can get the better of Paistiul who is trainer Jim Bolgers only runner of the evening. Solar Heat winner over C&D, could be of interest back near last winning mark and No Trouble successful here in November can compete for the minor honours while Rockview Roman is worthy of consideration if getting a run as first reserve.
