2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
Wind Op - Second run after wind operation
Without a victory since May 2018, though he's finished second on four occasions since. Ended last season with a narrow defeat at Newton Abbot, not staying 2m 4f on seasonal return. Back down in trip today and has claims on that.
Faded out of it at Sandown but return to best form, down in trip, gives chances.

Course Specialist - 2 wins from 3 starts here (67%)
Going Specialist - 2 wins from 3 starts on this ground (67%)
Has won both his course and distance starts since joining this yard, latterly in a rout two weeks ago. He's now four pounds higher in a better race, but he's clearly thriving for this yard and should have more to offer; respected.
Unbeaten in two starts for yard, both here last month; live claims again.

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Had some fair form for Sophie Leech, though he managed just one win from nine hurdling starts. He has joined top connections and is tongue-tied for his debut. He's on a workable mark on his best and the market should guide to expectations.
Debut for yard and tongue-strap fitted; best form gives him a chance; watch the market.

Just the two wins from twenty-three starts over timber, gaining his last success here off eleven pounds lower. He did place at Fontwell in March off this rating, but a recent return at Lingfield puts a question mark next to his name.
Well beaten when third here last month; still 11lb above last year's winning mark.

Wind Op - First run after wind operation
Won this race twelve months ago off a two-pound lower mark, following up at Ffos Las the start after off five pounds higher. He gest the cheekpieces today and has undergone wind surgery since we last saw him; strong claims.
Won this last year; lost his way lately but wind surgery/cheekpieces may well help.

2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
Scored at Ffos Las back in February, going close at Sandown thereafter. He returned this season with a fair sixth at Wetherby, where he weakened late over 2m 3f. Back down in distance now and two pounds lower; could be on the premises.
Weakened over longer trip on last month's return; could be a real threat back at 2m.

J: Rex Dingle 3
T: Nigel Dunger
Ended last season with a victory at Fontwell, reaching the frame of both his starts this term. He's looked high enough in the weights, however, and was beaten fourteen lengths at Fontwell on his latest outing. Likely best watched.
Two wins at Fontwell last season; fair efforts this autumn but others more likely.

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Scored off four pounds lower at Sandown in December, placing on two occasions since. Those came last winter, however, and he returned this campaign with a very flat run at Fontwell. Still looks to be on a difficult looking rating.
Sandown winner a year ago and claims on that; well beaten on last month's return, however.

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 0 wins from 24 in the last 14 days (0%)
Dual winner in January under both codes, well beaten in three subsequent starts, latterly at Fontwell when down the field on seasonal return. Very little positives to take from that and he's still above his last winning mark.
Two Fontwell wins last season but well held there on recent return; up in class.

Only 4lb higher than when winning here last month, RUACANA can complete the hat-trick. Bonne Question is next best.
