4/1

13-time winner but arrives on a 13-race losing run. A couple of recent fourths suggest getting closer to a winnable mark and latest 2lb drop gives him a squeak today.

Recent hurdles form poor but ran well when last seen on the level at Kempton in December keeping on for third over a likely inadequate 1m. Unproven over this trip but every chance she's effective over it and respected today.

Winner at Ripon in August finished second since in a trio of 1m4f AW handicaps (once here, twice at Lingfield). Another bold bid assured and probably the one to beat today.

Looked like he would get further when winning over 1m1½f here penultimately and similar impression when fourth since. Handicapper caught up after two recent wins but longer trip could bring further progress.

In good form last winter winning twice including over C&D but nothing like that level of late and has to be considered a risky proposition now.

Won twice at Southwell in January 2019 but made little impact since and ran two poor races after a layoff so hard to fancy here.

Betting

Forecast

Matewan (7/4), Snow Ocean (7/4), Fire Fighting (4/1), Never Be Enough (14/1), Cry Wolf (20/1), Temur Khan (25/1)

Verdict

There are plenty of question marks about the majority of these with the exception being ultra-consistent MATEWAN who looks the most likely winner. The biggest dangers are probably Snow Ocean and Never Be Enough although neither has been over this trip in the past.
  1. Matewan
  2. Snow Ocean
  3. Never Be Enough
