10/1
Just 1 lb higher than for latest success at Wetherby 12 months ago but hasn't come close to matching that form in 6 subsequent starts.

7/2
Winner of 2 of his 3 starts since returning to action in July, producing his best effort yet at Stratford (17f, good to firm) last time. 6 lb rise tolerable and should make another bold bid.

4/1
Capable hurdler when on-song and appeared to take a step back in the right direction on fourth start over fences at Kempton in March (since undergone wind surgery). Still, he's not one to rely on.

9/2
Raised his game a touch when landing a 6-runner Plumpton handicap (17f, good to firm) last month. Conditions again in his favour but more needed off this 6 lb higher mark.

11/4
Fairly useful hurdler who won twice at Leicester in 2018/19. Put in a decent round of jumping when second in a 4-runner Warwick handicap (16.2f, good) on chase debut and he needs considering.

13/2
In good heart during the summer, third at Southwell on return in July prior to hitting the crossbar 3 times at Stratford. Below par last time but no surprise to see him bounce back with a bold show.

Betting

Forecast

Falcon Sun (11/4), Tikkinthebox (7/2), Flying Tiger (4/1), Carolines Charm (9/2), Atlantic Storm (13/2), Ballyvic Boru (10/1), I'dliketheoption (10/1)

Verdict

FALCON SUN made a fairly encouraging start over fences at Warwick last month and, likely to strip fitter this time, he is appealing off the same mark as for his latest hurdles success at Leicester in 2019. The in-form Tikkinthebox is feared greatly, while Atlantic Storm should be on the premises, too.
