Verdict

Al Destoor is feared but DARK DEVIL won't mind conditions and is taken to defy top weight at a track he usually runs well at.

T: Richard Fahey
Not disgraced when third in a handicap over today’s course and distance last time out. Currently running from his last winning handicap mark, and the addition of first-time cheekpieces could eke out some improvement today.
Conditions fine and placed here off this mark last month; cheekpieces tried; contender

Winner of a handicap at Beverley in July, but he has failed to match that level of form in his three starts since. Now steps up to this trip for the first time, but he does have ground concerns on conditions this soft.

Not seen on the flat since finishing second in a 1m 4f handicap at Chepstow last September. Form tailed off over hurdles when last seen, but he has the plum draw here in stall 1, and soft ground is of no concern to him.
Progressive on Flat last season; winning hurdler but didn't progress in that sphere

Returned from a 595-day break to land a mile handicap at Lingfield in April. Ran well in defeat in his three starts afterwards, but he failed to beat a rival home over this course and distance last time out. Questions to answer now.
Slow ground a plus and mark not impossible but ran poorly over C&D last time

Without a win since June 2015, but he has run creditably in his three starts on the flat this year. Now running from twelve pounds below his last winning mark, and this softer ground should suit him.

Losing run is now at twelve, but he bounced back to form when third, (at odds of 33/1) in a mile handicap at Haydock last week. The first-time blinkers fitted there are now replaced with a first-time visor, and this step up in trip should suit.
Return to this trip will help and ran with credit last week; tricky draw to deal with
