7/1
Smart hurdler who has yet to match that form over fences, beating only one over C&D 19 days ago. Cheekpieces go back on and more is needed if he's to gain a first chase win.

2/1
Useful hurdler who quickly matched that level over fences when readily scoring over C&D in November. Yet to be asked for his effort when unseated 4 out there last time, and can gain compensation here.

Lightly raced in recent years but this course winner hinted at a revival when third in 21f Carlisle handicap last month. He's one for the shortlist.

Forecasts

Fransham (2/1), Across The Line (11/4), Destined To Shine (10/3), Cornerstone Lad (7/1), Hollywoodien (8/1)

Verdict

FRANSHAM looked sure to play a part in the finish when unseating 4 out here last time and is fancied to gain compensation off a handy-looking mark. Destined To Shine is also weighted to have a say on the back of his encouraging reappearance Haydock third, with both Hollywoodien and Across The Line not discounted either in an open handicap.

  1. FRANSHAM
  2. DESTINED TO SHINE (IRE)
  3. HOLLYWOODIEN (FR)
