Still a maiden, but first run since leaving Keith Dalgleish when respectable fourth of 9 in handicap hurdle at Wetherby (21.2f) 28 days ago. Not taken lightly if building on that now.

100/1 and cheekpieces on when modest sixth of 8 in handicap hurdle at Warwick (16f) 21 days ago. Back up in trip, and this ex-Irish maiden has work to do.

It's now twenty runs since last win in 2019, but he posted good second of 7 in handicap hurdle at Sedgefield (19.8ft) 15 days ago. Cheekpieces back on. Shortlisted.

Modest maiden hurdler, but he arrives fit from the Flat and yard is going well, so not discounted in first-time cheekpieces.

Rare below-par run when fourth of 7 in novice hurdle at Warwick (16f) 57 days ago. Back up in trip now, and he's the sort to bounce back.

10/1
Lightly-raced maiden. Patiently ridden when fifth in novice hurdle (22/1) at Southwell in June. Up in trip for his handicap debut and open to improvement on the back of a wind op. Interesting.

Thrice-raced maiden. First run since leaving Philip Kirby when well-held sixth of 9 in novice at Newcastle (20.3f) 7 months ago. Goes into handicaps now with plenty to find.

Winless since 2019, and tried in cheekpieces when below-par fifth of 8 in handicap hurdle at Sedgefield (16.8f) 15 days ago. Needs more despite mark tumbling.

Poor maiden who has been off 9 months since pulled up in handicap hurdle at Plumpton (25f). Easy to look elsewhere.

Course winner who arrives in decent nick, fifth of 10 in handicap hurdle at Sedgefield (16.8f) 3 days ago. In the mix despite being 1 lb out of the handicap.

Going the wrong way over hurdles before poor seventh on his chasing bow in 3m handicap at Hexham 21 days ago. Hard to warm to back in this sphere.

Forecasts

Oscar Clouds (4/1), Demi Sang (4/1), Ginger Du Val (11/2), Anightinlambourn (15/2), Grand Enterprise (15/2), Son Of The Somme (9/1), Lucky Icon (10/1), Time For Timone (10/1), Chess Player (12/1), Dare To Begin (16/1), Reassurance (20/1), Keeper Chris (40/1), Miss Malarky (50/1), Living's Boy An Co (80/1)

Verdict

Not so competetive as the numbers suggest, and TIME FOR TIMONE is fancied to take a big step forward now going handicapping after a wind op and open his account. Demi Sang is far more exposed but weighted to go well if backing up his recent Sedgefield second, with course-winner Grand Enterprise also worth a second look for place purposes.
