Easily drew clear of Battle Of Toro to win at Cartmel (2m1f, good to soft) last month and is now 2-3 over hurdles; probably won't mind what the weather does here; ought to be hard to beat.

Form & Verdict
Formerly a very useful Flat-racer in France and came good over hurdles with wide-margin success at Cartmel (2m1f, good to soft; first-time cheekpieces) in early June; no match for Ted Hastings when well-held second over that C&D three weeks later but was very respectable sixth in good-quality handicap there ten days ago; probably won't be far away.

Battle Of Toro

11st 7lb

J: Charlotte Jones

T: James Moffatt

Comparatively exposed with a record of just 1-9 over hurdles, the win gained at Cartmel (2m1f, good to soft) in June; however, he's a leading player on the figures back in a novice event and has back class (formerly useful on Flat).

Form & Verdict
Clear winner of good-ground Hexham bumper on last month's stable debut and followed up with comfortable success on hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) a fortnight ago; tackles stronger opposition today but still commands respect.

Fenna’s Loss

11st 7lb

J: Jamie Hamilton

T: Mark Walford

Might be best to draw a line under heavy defeat on handicap debut in August (hampered early and reportedly lost confidence); maiden winner the previous month and decent claims on that; ran well on soft once in Ireland.

Fenna’s Loss

12st 1lb

J: Sean Quinlan

T: Mark Walford

took keen hold, in touch with leaders when not fluent and hampered 1st, soon towards rear, not fluent 2nd, mistake 4th, ridden when not fluent 3 out, soon beaten (jockey said gelding lost his confidence having jumped into the back of Faro at the first hurdle)

5/1

Betting Forcast

Evs Ted Hastings, 4/1 Battle Of Toro, 7/4 Fenna’s Loss

Verdict

We don't yet know how good Fenna's Loss is but the Uttoxeter maiden he won two weeks ago was just a run-of-the-mill event and he meets a useful rival here in TED HASTINGS, who easily drew clear of Battle Of Toro to double his hurdling tally at Cartmel last month.[Chris Wilson]
