6/1

Fairly useful hurdler/chaser in France, winning over fences on his final couple of outings in 2019. Well held on yard debut over hurdles at Ascot in October but may well be sharper now back chasing.

11/1

Confirmed promise of return when capitalising on 3 lb lower mark at Southwell (15.8f) in August. Ran up to best when third at Kempton (18f) latest and he should remain competitive.

11/1

Fairly useful hurdler who landed short odds in good style in a novices' handicap chase at Ffos Las (19.f) 12 months ago. Good second at Ludlow in February and he appeals as being on a workable mark.

5/2

Fairly useful maiden hurdler who ran a cracker when runner-up in a novices' handicap chase at Hereford in December. Reportedly bled final start but given time since and returns with yard in good form.

12/1

Multiple hurdles winner who had little trouble in getting off the mark on chasing bow at Worcester (2m) in July 2019. Understandably in need of belated return at Wetherby and he remains with potential

Successful from this mark at Wincanton (20f) 12 months ago and not disgraced either outing so far this term. Yard in form and no surprise to see him go well.

7/1

Has returned in fine form, successful twice at around 21f in recent months. Left poorly placed when sixth of 11 at Newbury (19.8f) at the start of the month but this mark does demand that bit more.

7/2

Fairly useful chaser who hasn't been at his best in 2 starts so far this campaign, failing to build on his return effort when well held fourth of 5 at Newton Abbot in October. Mark is easing at least

18/1

Gradual progress in trio of novice hurdles last winter and showed aptitude for chasing despite falling late on at Taunton (18f) last month. Did tend to jump left then but he remains with potential.

Betting

Forecast

Saint De Vassy (5/2), Night Of Sin (7/2), Frero Banbou (6/1), Mine's A Pint (7/1), Keep Moving (11/1), Golden Whisky (11/1), Solar Impulse (11/1), Equus Millar (12/1), Folly Gate (18/1)

Verdict

SAINT DE VASSY was clearly not 100% when last seen in March but his previous Hereford second is form that has been well and truly boosted since and he's given the nod to bounce back on his return to action. Frero Banbou remains with potential and is feared, along with Folly Gate and Keep Moving for the in-form Philip Hobbs team.
