Two wins in a visor this spring, the latter when digging deep off 1lb higher at Cartmel (2m5f, good) in May; well beaten twice since, though, and has become a difficult horse to predict; cheekpieces back on today; versatile regarding ground.

Form: 80U5P- D

Last run: 99 days

W: 11st 11lb

7 yo Gelding

OR: 127

Form & Verdict
Looked a very promising novice hurdler in 2020-21 but was 0-8 over fences last season and has become disappointing; remains in the care of Gordon Elliott and may yet turn things around but his stablemate in this race has considerably less to prove.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 118

Form & Verdict
Ex-French 5yo who was evidently well suited by the move up in trip when winning over C&D (good; front par well clear) this month; recent 4lb rise ought to be manageable, and he probably still has untapped potential as a stayer.

Hermann Clermont

12st 0lb

J: Niall Moore

T: Gordon Elliott

Maiden over hurdles but has made great strides over fences lately, winning twice over 3m at Perth before being a solid runner-up; slipped up there last week; the drop in trip may not be ideal back over hurdles but he has the class to go close.

held up in last, mistake 15th, shaken up when switched left and went second before 2 out, soon every chance, led last, ridden and headed final 110yds, no extra

10/11

Betting Forcast

5/2 Fire Away, 9/2 Torygraph, 4/6 Hermann Clermont

Verdict

The most obvious answer is HERMANN CLERMONT, who came good for Gordon Elliott with a C&D win 16 days ago and could easily have more to offer. Fire Away needs to put two below-par runs behind him but still has a good strike-rate over fences (5-12) and will be dangerous if back on song.[Chris Wilson]
