3/1
Multiple hurdles/chase winner who had been out of form but stopped the slide to an extent when third to Friend's Don't Ask at Uttoxeter last month. Potentially very well handicapped.

10/1
Useful chaser at best and back to form from out of the blue when landing 7-runner handicap at Ludlow in April. Record fresh suggests he may just need this.

Veteran chaser who regained the winning thread in decisive fashion at Market Rasen (3m) in August. Also victorious in a match at Fontwell a month ago but up 3 lb for that.

9/1
Made a winning start back with David Dennis in 3m Bangor handicap in August. Added to tally in weak 4-runner contest at Kelso and a penalty asks for more, but he's clearly in good nick.

9/4
Building up a good record over fences, recording win number 4 at Uttoxeter a month ago. Up 5 lb but a likeable type and seems sure to go well.

Latest win at Ffos Las in May and back from a quiet spell when second of 5 at Fontwell a fortnight ago. Blinkers now the headgear of choice.

Forecasts

Friends Don't Ask (9/4), Young Wolf (3/1), Mr Mafia (9/2), Marble Moon (5/1), Flying Verse (9/1), Another Stowaway (10/1)

Verdict

Backing YOUNG WOLF comes with clear risks, particularly against a trio of last-time-out winners, but he stopped the rot at Uttoxeter last month and is dangerously well handicapped if able to build on that. His old rival Friends Don't Ask is a likeable type and is feared most.

  1. YOUNG WOLF (IRE)
  2. FRIENDS DON'T ASK
  3. FLYING VERSE
