Fair hurdles winner (at 22.7f) who showed a similar level of form when 5 lengths fifth of 6 on handicap chase debut at Kelso (23.4f) 3 weeks ago. Possible he'll come on for that run.

Low-mileage ex-pointer who bettered hurdling exploits when fifth of 13 in a novices' handicap chase at Carlisle (20.9f) in April. Jumped soundly then and worth a look on return.

Fair handicap chaser who won 3 times here last season. Largely struggled so far this term but mark is easing all the time and last week's third over 2m was a creditable display

Fairly useful winner in 2018 who took a step back in right direction when third of 6 at Carlisle (20f) earlier this month. Potentially well treated if able to build on that now.

Went close to breaking his duck at Newcastle (20f) in March. Looked very rusty returning from 8 months off at Sedgefield 24 days ago but he may well be sharper now.

Point winner who has displayed some promise over hurdles and feasible to think she will come on for his return over shorter in October. Market should guide with yard also saddling Don't Need To Know.

Lightly-raced maiden hurdler/chaser. Very good third in 20f handicap chase at Uttoxeter (20f) when last seen in July 2020 and interesting if strong in betting on return.

Ex-pointer who ran well in a first-time tongue strap when third over fences at Musselburgh (23.7f) in January. Absent since but he returns with yard amongst the winners so worth a second look.

Confirmed more positive signs when off the mark at Bangor (17.3f) in October, crucially jumping better than previously. Claims if backing that up now. One of four from this yard.

Poor maiden hurdler with little form over fences and he ran no sort of race over hurdles here 2 weeks ago. No easy task on once more operating from out of the weights.

Forecasts

Rapid Raider (7/2), Ardera Cross (9/2), Eagle De Guye (11/2), Destiny Is All (6/1), Artic Mann (13/2), Camp Belan (7/1), Melanamix (9/1), Don't Need To Know (10/1), Darius Des Sources (10/1), Caboy (10/1), Just Don't Know (14/1), Blakerigg (14/1), Morningside (25/1), Saltmarket (125/1)

Verdict

Plenty in with a shout in a competitive handicap and it may pay to side with EAGLE DE GUYE. A low-mileage 7-y-o, he ran well when third over further at Musselburgh in January and he returns with his yard in good form. Lucinda Russell holds a strong hand with no less than 4 runners, Rapid Raider and Destiny Is All both interesting. Don't Need To Know is also worth a second look.
