5/2
Unbeaten in four starts since joining this yard in the summer and justified odds-on favouritism over 2m7f at Worcester (good) in a handicap hurdle last time out. Races off a 9lb higher mark today and looks a leading contender on his chase debut.

3/1
Twice a winner in point-to-points and put in his best effort so far under rules when beaten a neck over 3m2f at Fontwell (good) last month. Wore blinkers (retained) for the first time that day and races off the same mark in this contest.

4/1
Victorious in a 3m handicap hurdle at Taunton (good) in April last year and placed in three subsequent hurdles starts over around 2m4f. Making her chasing debut following over a year off the track.

14/1
Maiden after seven starts and pulled up when making his handicap debut over an extended 2m7f at Huntingdon (good) at the end of May. Something to prove on his return from a break.

Dontminddboys26
Age: 8|  Weight: 11-4| J: James Nixon| T: R Dickin| OR:  95
8/1
14 race maiden but running well over fences of late including when runner-up over an extended 3m at Towcester (good-to-firm) last time out. Races off the same mark today and is likely to run well once more.
6

Age: 6|  Weight: 11-3| J: H Cobden| T: C L Tizzard| OR:  94
5/1
Maiden after 12 starts and finished runner-up the last twice. Wears blinkers for the first time and would probably prefer the ground quicker than is forecast today.

Age: 7|  Weight: 11-3| J: T Scudamore| T: M Scudamore| OR:  94
14/1
Point-to-point winner on heavy ground but disappointing in the main under rules. Finished third off a 2lb higher mark at Uttoxeter (good-to-soft) last month and tackles this trip for the first time today.

Betting

Forecast

Plantagenet (5/2), Velvet Cognac (3/1), Double Accord (4/1), Cucklington (5/1), Dontminddboys (8/1), Corner Creek (14/1), Belmont Park (14/1)

Verdict

PLANTAGENET has been in fine form since joining this stable and can complete a five-timer by winning on his chasing debut. The selection shapes as if this step up in trip will suit and can see off Velvet Cognac who ran well to finish runner-up last time out and is lightly raced in handicaps. Of the remainder Dontminddboys put in a couple of solid placed efforts in the spring and he can claim third today.
  1. Plantagenet
  2. Velvet Cognac
  3. Dontminddboys
