9/4
Got back on track for new yard when easily landing 4-runner handicap chase (5/2) over C&D (good to firm) 19 days ago. Up 5 lb but another bold showing is very much on the cards.

Made winning chasing bow at Plumpton in January and back to form when fourth of 6 in handicap chase at Plumpton (25.7f, good) 24 days ago. Still needs bit more though if he's to go in again.

Fairly useful 2m4f hurdle winner. Made encouraging start over fences when fourth at Taunton in November but he hasn't gone on in manner expected, pulled up at Ffos Las last month. More needed.

Useful chaser at his best but below par in three runs this term, fifth of 12 in handicap chase at Newbury (23.4f, good to soft) 39 days ago. Well treated on pick of form.

It's now fifteen runs since his last win in 2018 but he ran well in first-time cheekpieces when second of 5 in handicap chase (10/1) at Plumpton (25.7f, good) 31 days ago. Shortlisted.

Forecasts

Schnabel (9/4), Dark Flame (5/2), Normandy Soldier (10/3), Twenty Twenty (5/1), Mercian Knight (7/1), Uallrightharry (7/1), Churchtown Glen (9/1)

Verdict

SCHNABEL had plenty left in the tank when scoring over C&D last month so is fancied to defy a 5 lb rise in a handicap where several have question marks against them. Churchtown Glen arrives on a long losing run but is feared most on the back of his good Plumpton second.

  1. SCHNABEL (IRE)
  2. CHURCHTOWN GLEN (IRE)
  3. DARK FLAME (IRE)
