13/2

Won twice in 2018/19 but lightly raced since and it's hard to draw many positives from his 2 runs this term. Best watched for now.

7/2

Wind op had positive effect when ready winner on 3m Perth return last month under Jack Tudor. Handicapper hasn't missed him with 10 lb rise but it would be no surprise were he to have more to offer.

Lurks on a good mark but hasn't offered enough in recent starts to suggest he's ready to take advantage.

Yet to trouble the judge for this yard but there were slightly better signs at Newton Abbot last time and his mark continues to slide.

20/1

Runner-up first 2 starts following wind surgery in spring 2019 but below par last autumn and has been off for 11 months. Given a bit of a chance by handicapper but others still preferred.

40/1

Modest maiden hurdler for Gordon Elliott. Posted another creditable effort when third in Sedgefield novice for new yard 13 days ago but will need to improve if she's to defy this mark on handicap bow.

4/6

Much improved when stepped up in trip to win 2¾m Hereford handicap last week by a comfortable 3 lengths. Looks well treated under his 7 lb penalty.

Betting

Forecast

Oscars Moonshine (4/6), Talktomenow (7/2), Umndeni (13/2), Whatthebutlersaw (12/1), Max Forte (20/1), Adimelo (28/1), Escort'namix (40/1)

Verdict

OSCARS MOONSHINE had a bit up his sleeve when an improved winner at Hereford last week and is selected to make light of a penalty, most likely at the expense of last month's ready Perth scorer Talktomenow.

  1. OSCARS MOONSHINE (IRE)
  2. TALKTOMENOW
  3. ADIMELO (FR)
