9/2
Bumper/maiden hurdle winner who was a creditable third in 2½m handicap chase at Lingfield in November. Not beaten far in a bumper latest (since undergone a wind op) and claims back in this sphere.

10/3
Point winner who opened account in this sphere over C&D in October. Found little upped to 25f at Pumpton last time (first run following a wind op), but couldn't rule out back at this trip.

Fair chaser for Dr Richard Newland and caused a surprise when making a winning debut for this yard in a Chepstow handicap hurdle (2m, good) back from a 22-month layoff. Claims despite 7 lb rise.

9/1
Without a win since August 2018 but has returned to form the last twice, latterly finding just one too good at Huntingdon (20.7f, good). Remains on an attractive mark and this 12-y-o merits respect.

It's been around 2 years since he last hit the target and this ungenuine type is opposable back from a 6-month break.

Shaped pretty well when third over this C&D on debut for new yard in December. Excuses at Huntingdon next time and while a sizeable step forward is needed, she may do better now handicapping.

9/4
Right back to form for new yard the last twice, landing handicaps at Newton Abbot (21.5f) and Taunton (19f) in good style. However, another personal best is required off this revised mark.

Forecasts

Mystic Court (9/4), Rookie Trainer (10/3), Alrightjack (9/2), Percy Street (13/2), Distingo (7/1), Nikki Steel (17/2), Whatthebutlersaw (9/1), Glasha's Peak (14/1)

Verdict

This looks tricky. A chance is taken on ALRIGHTJACK, who has undergone a third wind operation since his latest start in January and returns to this sphere on a potentially handy mark. Distingo lost no caste in defeat when chasing home a progressive type here last time and is next on the list ahead of Chepstow comeback winner Nikki Steel.

  1. ALRIGHTJACK (IRE)
  2. DISTINGO (IRE)
  3. NIKKI STEEL (IRE)
