5/2

Winning pointer/modest maiden hurdler who shaped as if better for the run sent chasing at Hexham 20 days ago, so it's reasonable to expect improvement in first-time cheekpieces.

3/1

Winning chaser who was placed in handicap at Bangor and Uttoxeter this summer. Well held at Cartmel latest but likely type to bounce back in first-time blinkers.

11/1

Scored over fences at Fontwell last October and creditable third next 2 starts. Ended the campaign with a couple of poor displays though, and fared no better on return at Ffos Las 3 weeks ago.

3/1

Creditable efforts to make the frame first 3 starts back this season, but is not one to trust in the main and ran no sort of race at Fontwell last time.

11/1

Without a win since 2018 but was a good second in a 0-120 at Uttoxeter last season, so needs considering with his sights lowered on this return to action.

Winning pointer who wasn't beaten as far as on chasing debut at Wincanton last week, but it was hardly encouraging. Cheekpieces back on.

Forecast

Peter's Portrait (5/2), The Happy Chappy (3/1), Trumps Benefit (3/1), Hurlstone Point (7/1), Pembroke House (11/1), Sutter's Mill (11/1), Spock (40/1), Poetic Presence (40/1)

Verdict

PEMBROKE HOUSE isn't getting any younger but he was a good second in a 0-120 at Uttoxeter last season, so could be the way to go with his sights very much lowered on this return to action. Peter’s Portrait could easily leave behind his opening effort over fences so he’s feared, as it Trumps Benefit, who appeals as the type to bounce back quickly from a below-par effort last time.

  1. PEMBROKE HOUSE
  2. PETER'S PORTRAIT (IRE)
  3. TRUMPS BENEFIT (IRE)
