5/1
Has enjoyed a prolific winter and pulled out more improvement to gain his fifth win of the campaign when bolting up at Catterick a week ago. More on his plate but deserves the utmost respect.

8/1
Signed off for last season with a win here (19.4f) and produced 3 creditable efforts this term before failing to stay at this track last time. Likely to bounce back returned to more suitable trip.

18/1
Fairly useful winning chaser who was placed all 3 runs in handicaps last term but not much encouragement so far this season. Back from an 87-day break.

15/8
Dual chase winner (at up to 21f) last winter who has slipped in the weights and performed creditably the last twice. Return to this trip will suit, so looks a big player.

13/2
Three hurdle wins over 2½m and getting the hang of things over fences, plenty of encouragement to be gleaned from his fourth in handicap at Taunton last time. She's on an appealing mark.

6/1
Won twice over fences last term and, after a spin over hurdles on return, performed with credit when third in handicap at Ayr back in this sphere. Has work to do from this mark, however.

Maiden who's proving hard to catch right, again let down by jumping over C&D last time.

Bounced back to score cosily in Uttoxeter handicap chase on debut for current stable in November but bit to prove having been pulled up at Chepstow 10 weeks later.

Forecast

Eceparti (15/8), Cybalko (5/1), Caboy (5/1), Manetti (6/1), Oriental Cross (13/2), Diamond Brig (7/1), Mortens Leam (8/1), Grange Ranger (14/1), Bollin Ace (18/1)

Verdict

ECEPARTI is used to contesting better races than this and has been threatening a full revival recently, so a chance is taken on him to capitalise on a handy mark at the likely expense of Cybalko, whose recent Catterick success shows that he's still absolutely thriving. Oriental Cross is unexposed over fences, so she also warrants consideration.

  2. CYBALKO (FR)
  3. ORIENTAL CROSS (IRE)
