6/1
Scored twice for Sara Ender through the winter and made a positive start (despite a poor tactical position) when third of 5 over C&D earlier in the month. Claims if they go an end-to-end gallop.

C&D winner who struggled last term and has been off for 10 months. Handicapper continues to relent and he represents a trainer/jockey combination that ran riot at the last meeting here.

Easily best of three runs for his current yard when second of 13 in handicap hurdle (22/1) at Carlisle (17f) 96 days ago. Can give another good account.

Belatedly off the mark in a C&D selling handicap over a year ago and wasn't seen to best effect when fourth of 5 to a stablemate over C&D last time. Not one to write off.

7/1
Modest hurdler who arrives on the back of a creditable second (returning from an absence) over C&D 23 days ago, albeit no match for the winner that day. Should be thereabouts.

Stepped up on any of her efforts in Ireland when returning from 7 months off to finish runner-up at Perth last month. Not quite in the same form behind classy winner there next time, but remains of interest.

Runner-up in a novice here in 2020 and wasn't discredited when fourth in a handicap at Perth when last seen. That was 14 months ago, though.

9/2
Hasn't tasted success since striking here last August but she's dropped a long way in the weights and this slight step back up in trip should help, so no forlorn hope.

Remains winless and doesn't make much appeal returning to this sphere after a poor run on the Flat.

Forecasts

Calliope (9/2), Golden Town (5/1), Oakmont (11/2), Demi Sang (6/1), Malina Ocarina (7/1), A Mere Bagatelle (8/1), Burnage Boy (10/1), Kilfinan Bay (11/1), Tommydan (12/1), Kayfast Warrior (12/1), Arij (16/1), Redwood Queen (22/1)

Verdict

Although he had a quiet campaign last year, GOLDEN TOWN might be worth chancing from a much-reduced mark on return from a 10-month absence for a trainer/rider who are always a formidable proposition at this track. A Mere Bagatelle is worth considering on the back of a couple of placed efforts at Perth, while Demi Sang can get involved in a well-run race.
