Zoltan Varga (5/2), Tierra Verde (7/2), Cropley (11/2), Karl Marx (8/1), Upham Running (8/1), Fire Ahead (10/1), Oologist (14/1), Hoola Hula (14/1), Scorpion Star (33/1), Eggesford (33/1), Amour D'Or (40/1), Blackadder (66/1)

Verdict

Few of these have a realistic chance but with ground conditions likely to take their toll, this will come down to who can handle conditions best. In that regard Karl Marx and UPHAM RUNNING take the eye. The former should have won last time when runner-up at Wincanton last time over 2m4f. The selection was behind him that day but promises to do better at this trip and the securing of James Bowen adds confidence. Fire Ahead is not highly tried on handicap debut and his yard are in good form so a market move would be noteworthy. Cropley is capable of bouncing back in this grade and has each-way prospects.
  1. Upham Running
  2. Cropley
  3. Karl Marx
