5/4
Made hard work of adding another small-field success to his tally in a Taunton seller (19f) 2 weeks ago. Still, found another good opening on debut for new yard. Obvious claims.

Dual hurdles winner for Nicky Henderson but essentially disappointing in recent times and he's passed over even allowing for the drop in class.

Winner at Doncaster (2m) in January but not scaled same heights on 3 of his 4 starts since, dropping away quickly on return from 6 months off at Worcester (20f) 2 weeks ago.

Modest maiden on the Flat and little impact in varied events over hurdles. Point winner in May 2018 when last seen.

Winless since 2018 but showed he retain his ability when fourth in a Newbury handicap (20.5f) in March. Never figured at Huntingdon in May but does at least return with yard in good nick.

Forecasts

Celestial Force (5/4), San Pedro De Senam (5/2), Dream Du Grand Val (4/1), Finisher (10/1), Secret Secret (10/1), Kalaya (16/1), Norse Castle (80/1)

Verdict

CELESTIAL FORCE made hard work of landing cramped odds at Taunton on his latest outing 2 weeks ago, but this looks another good opportunity for him on yard debut and he can concede weight all round and add to his tally. San Pedro de Senam and Secret Secret can do battle for minor honours.

  1. CELESTIAL FORCE (IRE)
  2. SAN PEDRO DE SENAM (FR)
  3. SECRET SECRET (IRE)
