40/1 on first run for 23 months/since leaving David Dennis when encouraging third of 9 in bumper at Lingfield 38 days ago. Back over hurdles for handicap debut and needs considering.

Lightly-raced maiden. 40/1, last of 8 in novice hurdle at Exeter (16.8f) 46 days ago, never travelling well. Up in trip for handicap bow with work to do.

Fairly useful on the Flat but no show in 5 starts over hurdles this term, tried in a hood last time. Very hard to warm to.

9/1
10/1, good third of 7 on handicap bow at Southwell (20.4f, heavy) 74 days ago. Still low mileage, so not ruled out in bid to open his account.

5/1
Hinted at promise but (9/1) failed to kick on as expected when only eleventh of 16 in handicap hurdle at Wincanton (15.3f) 61 days ago. Bit to prove now.

18/1
Fair form when twice placed in bumpers last season but yet to offer much all three starts in this sphere so far. Cheekpieces go on now handicapping with plenty to find.

11/1
Veteran mare who arrives in decent nick, fourth of 18 in handicap hurdle at Chepstow (19.4f, heavy) 36 days ago. Can race off 2 lb lower mark now so she's shortlisted.

28/1
Went backwards from reappearance when fifteenth of 17 in handicap hurdle (18/1) at Doncaster (19.4f) 90 days ago. Lot more is required if she's to gain a breakthrough win.

9/1
Won a couple of 3m handicap chases in 2018. Not so good since, though fair fifth of 17 in handicap hurdle at Exeter (21.6f) 70 days ago. No forlorn hope.

Made winning return at Plumpton in September but arrives below par, never-dangerous sixth there last time. Needs to step forward,

11/2
Still to get his head in front but posted excellent second on yard debut at Huntingdon (3m1f) only to run poorly at Catterick last time. Needs to get back on track.

Pillar Of Steel37

50/1
Modest maiden hurdler who was in need of run after 10 months off when seventh of 12 on Exeter last month. Should strip fitter now but others are better treated at these weights.

18/1
Veteran is sliding in the weights at present without any indication that he's about to take advantage but he landed this contest 2 years ago so shouldn't be totally dismissed off a career-low mark.

Fair 1m4f Flat winner for Mick Appleby last year but has offered little in 3 hurdle runs for new yard, tried in visor last time. Hard to warm to.

Fair performer on the Flat but arrives out of sorts over hurdles, always behind on yard debut at Wincanton last month. Big step forward is needed.

Maliboo36

11/2
Winning pointer. Lightly raced over hurdles but got right back on track when excellent third in 2m3f Chepstow handicap last month. First two have gone in since, so she's interesting off same mark.

Modest winning hurdler for Tom Lacey but hasn't been seen for over 4 years, so veteran obviously has a lot to prove.

Winning Irish pointer. First time in the frame over hurdles when fourth of 13 in handicap at Taunton last month. Needs to step up on that again if she's to gain a first win in this sphere, though.

Forecasts

Guetapan Collonges (5/1), Maliboo (11/2), Nothing Man (11/2), Queen Of The Court (13/2), Another Frontier (9/1), Wavering Down (9/1), Goodgirlteresa (11/1), Gumbo Flyer (18/1), Hear The Chimes (18/1), Getaway Honey (18/1), Mandalayan (18/1), Guillemot (20/1), Sixties Secret (28/1), Candy Lou (28/1), Pillar Of Steel (50/1), Ingenuity (50/1), Tigray (50/1), Gabriel Oats (80/1)

Verdict

Not so competitive as the numbers suggest, and MALIBOO is well worth siding with given the form of her recent Chepstow third is proving very strong and she hails from an in-form yard. Goodgirlteresa has been given a chance by the official assessor so isn't taken lightly with the lightly-raced Wavering Down another to consider after taking a step foward on his handicap bow at Southwell.

  1. MALIBOO (IRE)
  2. GOODGIRLTERESA (IRE)
  3. WAVERING DOWN (IRE)
