33/1
Came good in July last year with a brace of wins at Perth. Shaped as if needing the run after 11 months off when a well-beaten fourth at Fontwell last month and now makes his chasing debut.

5/2
Useful hurdler at best who was some way below that level in trio of chase starts last year. Ran well in first-time blinkers after 8 months off at Uttoxeter last month and should build on that here.

Signed off for 2019 with victory in 25f handicap at Hereford but was comfortably held on all 3 starts since. Questions to answer on first start since leaving Philip Hobbs on chase/handicap bow.

Betting

Forecast

Jersey Bean (5/2), Oscar Asche (3/1), Dentley De Mee (10/3), Rosserk Abbey (5/1), That's A Given (13/2), Ellens Way (8/1), Putting Green (33/1)

Verdict

JERSEY BEAN ran well fitted in first-time blinkers when third at Uttoxeter on his reappearance last month. That should have blown away any cobwebs, and he can gain his first win over the larger obstacles from the same mark here. Rosserk Abbey rates as the main threat following his recent runner-up effort at Warwick, ahead of chasing-debutant Oscar Asche.
