Has done well since joining this yard, adding to his tally at Hexham in April. Creditable efforts since, including when 6 lengths fifth of 7 to Shetland Bus at Cartmel (22.1f) last time.

Has made excellent strides forward this summer, completing a hat-trick at Perth in August, and shaped as if his new mark is still a fair one when second at Uttoxeter last time. Not taken lightly.

Completed a Market Rasen double before acquitting himself well in a deeper race at Aintree. Flat debut was uninspiring, but ran well back hurdling when third at aforementioned venue last time.

Successful from 2 lb higher at Hexham last October and ran creditably in first-time blinkers after 7 weeks off when third at Uttoxeter (23.3f) in July. Cheekpieces back on and expected to go well.

Confirmed his return to form when second of 6 in handicap hurdle at Sedgefield (19.8f, good to firm) 20 days ago, clear of rest. Back up in grade now but at least has the same mark to work with.

Produced a big career best when second in 9-runner handicap at Ayr (24.3f) in April. That form looks solid, so she's respected up 4 lb on this return to action.

Dual purpose performer who, fit from hurdling justified support to go in again on the Flat at Carlisle in August. Not in same form at Musselburgh on Sunday but returns to hurdling on a fair mark.

Gained reward for a series of sound efforts in defeat when scoring at Cartmel in June, and fit from the Flat, ran another solid race off 5 lb higher when third there last time. Back up in trip.

Forecasts

Shetland Bus (7/2), Iolani (4/1), Ask Paddington (9/2), Giovanni Change (5/1), Aurora Thunder (8/1), Glinger Flame (8/1), Beach Break (11/1), Frightened Rabbit (14/1), Lethal Steps (16/1)

Verdict

GLINGER FLAME is on a good mark and makes appeal now returning to a stiffer track again, so he's taken to strike in refitted cheekpieces. Shetland Bus has made excellent strides forward this summer and can go well again, while Giovanni Change seems to be getting better on the jumping score and can also figure.

  1. GLINGER FLAME (IRE)
  2. SHETLAND BUS (GER)
  3. GIOVANNI CHANGE (FR)
