9/1
Fair sort last seen finishing second in June 2019 Aintree handicap chase. No stamina doubts but has appeared to prefer a fairly decent surface in recent years even though he has won on soft in the past. Goes well fresh but yard quiet at present.

1/1
Veteran mare who has won seven races and whose last win was in this race in 2018 off this mark. Looked on way back when solid second over C&D last time and jockey booking very much catches the eye.

17/2
14-race maiden but has placed eight times and was still in touch on only second start for current yard when falling 4 out over C&D last month. Not without a chance if picking his hooves up.

Stayed on well last time over C&D to score off 5lb lower mark. Only other hurdles success also came here so clearly likes the track. Up in grade but remains a player for local yard that does very well here.

Forecasts

Tambura (1/1), Age Of Wisdom (11/8), Good And Hardy (4/1), Puppet Warrior (17/2), Minella Daddy (9/1)

Verdict

An intriguing contest in which a case can just about be made for each of the five contenders. Preference is for former race winner TAMBURA who looked to be coming back to her best when a good second last time out over C&D. Age of Wisdom gets plenty of weight from his rivals and won here last time so could prove a serious danger, while Good And Hardy has been in fine form this campaign and wasn't at all disgraced at Warwick recently. Puppet Warrior fell when still in contention last time and may also make his presence felt. Top weight Minella Daddy is a decent sort but his yard has been without a winner for over two months and he returns from a nine-month absence.
