Third success in 2m handicap hurdles when striking at Southwell under this rider last month. Held in first-time cheekpieces at Uttoxeter next time and more needed now sent chasing.

9/4

Hurdles winner who showed plenty in 5 runs over fences at up to 20f last season. Gone well fresh and looks set for a big run.

5/1

Fair winning hurdler at 2m. Caught the eye in a big way on chase debut at Plumpton (19.8f) when last seen, not knocked about and finishing with running left despite losing shoe. Could improve plenty.

5/2

Fairly useful handicap hurdler who won twice at Leicester over 2m in 2018/19. Tricky to catch right but no reason why he won't make up into just as good a chaser. First run for 7 months.

Forecast

Purple King (85/40), Jaboticaba (9/4), Falcon Sun (5/2), Statuario (11/4), Fairway Freddy (5/1), Le Grand Fromage (8/1)

Verdict

FAIRWAY FREDDY was a big eye-catcher on his first go over fences at Plumpton when last seen, not knocked about and finishing with running left despite losing a shoe. He looks the type who could do vastly better in this sphere and given his yard can ready one after an absence he's taken to make a winning return. Jaboticaba is feared most ahead of Le Grand Fromage.

  1. FAIRWAY FREDDY (IRE)
  2. JABOTICABA (FR)
  3. LE GRAND FROMAGE
