712-2OR: 122
7/1

Winner of mares bumper and mares maiden hurdle. Tailed off last of three on chasing bow 2m1f at Exeter last time so will do well to score on handicap chase bow on back of that under top weight.

6/1

Handed 15lb weight hike following back-to-back wins at Ffos Las and Hereford last winer over 3m-3m1f. Not disgraced on first start back when fourth at Hereford last month and shouldn't be inconvenienced by drop back in trip off 2lb lower.

4/1

Unexposed mare who won Huntingdon 2m4f mares hurdle in February then finished second last month on chasing bow at Southwell on first start for 285 days. May strip fitter and will know more so looks a contender.

4/1

Winner in heavy ground over hurdles, and won Ffos Las 2m4f h'cap chase in February off 1lb lower. Eased 3lb following distant third at Cheltenham latest but not out of it back to a fair mark under decent conditional claiming 7lb.

12/1

Last win came at Kelso in November 2018 novices handicap chase. Has been consistently placed since then but hasn't looked the heartiest of battlers and may again find one or two too good.

7/1

Sedgefield novices handicap chase winner in December 2018. Had her chances since then but has been disappointing last two starts, although latest was following break and over inadequate trip. More needed.

10/3

Only win came in Southwell bumper back in November 2017. Returned from wind surgery and 10-month absence to run two modest races at Wincanton last month. Has to raise her game to be in the mix where it matters most.

20/1

Best form on a fairly sound surface so the heavy ground looks a problem. Tailed off last of 4 under similar conditions last time at Wincanton last time and is hard to fancy.

Betting

Forecast

Everlanes (10/3), Loveherandleaveher (4/1), Molly Carew (4/1), Top And Drop (6/1), Outofthisworld (7/1), Inch Lala (7/1), Troubled Soul (12/1), Kentford Mallard (20/1)

Verdict

With her handler having a fine 26% winning strike-rate in chases at this venue, LOVEHERANDLEAVEHER is fancied to improve on a promising recent chasing bow and land this modest affair. Top And Drop appeals as a likely danger and the drop back in trip should not be an issue for a mare who likes the testing conditions. Molly Carew wasn't disgraced (although beaten a long way in the end) at Cheltenham last time, and it will be interesting to see if the unexposed top weight Outofthisworld attracts any support in the betting market. On the face of it she has plenty of weight, but is surely better than she showed on chasing bow last time.
