12/1

Winner on debut for this yard over 2m at Wetherby (soft) in April 2016. Absent for 12 months prior to disappointing at Stratford (good) last month. Races off a 4lb lower mark today.

3/1

Successful at the second time of asking over hurdles when winning at Hexham (good) earlier this month.. Represents a leading yard with a 34% strike-rate (15/44) recently and making his handicap debut today.

13/2

Winning point-to-pointer and running well in three runs since rejoining this stable wining at Fontwell (good) three starts back. Pulled up over 2m5f at Kempton (good) last time out and this drop back in trip looks likely to suit.

16/1

Victorious in a Stratford maiden hurdle on good ground over an extended 2m last October. Well held since including on debut for this stable at Kempton (good) last month.

16/1

In great form this spring winner at Wincanton, Plumpton and on his penultimate start at Exeter (good) under today's jockey. Disappointed following a change of rider at Newton Abbot last time and interesting to see how he fares today.

Age: 8|  Weight: 11-6  |  J: T Scudamore |  T: C J Down|  OR: 108|  D
5/1

Sucessful in a 2m handicap hurdle at Chepstow (good-to-firm) a month ago. Well held third at Worcester last time out and others look more likely today.

Age: 5|  Weight: 11-5  |  J: P K Donovan |  T: N P Mulholland|  OR: 107
4/1

Beaten 10L into third over 2m1f at Newton Abbot (good) earlier this month. Races off the same mark today though slight drop back in trip looks unlikely to suit.

14/1

Registered his sixth success in 29 starts when winning at Stratford (good) over an extended 2m last month. Beaten favourite off this mark over the same C&D subsequently and more needed here.

11
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-3  |  J: Sam Twiston-Davies |  T: N A Twiston-Davies|  OR: 105
20/1

Racing on the Flat in the main recently finishing runner-up over 1m3f at Kempton in early April. Well beaten on hurdles return when seventh of eight at Perth (good) last month and others make more appeal.

13
Age: 4|  Weight: 10-13  |  J: T J O'Brien |  T: J L Flint|  OR: 105
8/1

Finished in the first three in three of his last four starts. Beaten 3¼L when finishing third of nine at Ffos Las (good) earlier this month. Races off a 1lb higher mark today and worth a check in the market here.

Forecast

One For Billy (3/1), Vancouver (4/1), Marienstar (9/2), Billy My Boy (5/1), Bletchley Castle (13/2), With Pleasure (8/1), Sioux Chieftain (12/1), Elysian Prince (14/1), Big Chip And Pin (14/1), Thundering Home (16/1), Kalaskadesemilley (16/1), Aldeburgh (20/1), Jazzy Lady (25/1)

Verdict
BLETCHLEY CASTLE appeared not to stay when stepped up in trip at Kempton last time out. The selection pulled up on that occasion and this distance looks more suitable and with that in mind he can take this competitive event. One For Billy ran well to win a novice hurdle last time out and can claim second on his handicap debut while the in form Marienstar who's won twice already for two different stables this month can claim third today.
