Form & Verdict
Didn't take to chasing last season (three attempts) but scored at Worcester (2m7f, good) when back over hurdles in May; benefits from Thomas Doggrell's useful 7lb claim here but has a point to prove after a duff effort back at Worcester last month.

Form & Verdict
Opened hurdling account at sixth attempt, drawing clear by 13l here (2m4f, good) last month; had to settle for second off today's 10lb higher mark over that trip 16 days ago but the winner probably nicked that race from the front; moves up to 3m today and remains open to further improvement.

Dual novice winner in March 2021 (2m4f/2m7f, good to soft); not seen again until 42l defeat on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) three weeks ago but is entitled to have needed that oiuting and remains unexposed.

11 yo Gelding

OR: 114

Form & Verdict
Getting long in the tooth now and has regressed over the last year but, following some significant help from the handicapper, has made the frame twice at Market Rasen in recent weeks (2m2f/2m4f, good); not out of this if stamina holds out on first attempt at 3m; rain will reduce his appeal.

6 yo Mare

OR: 107

Form & Verdict
Ex-Irish mare who has completed a C&D hat-trick since switched to front-running tactics in early June; latest 4lb rise doesn't look excessive and she might still be improving; ought to make another bold bid; gained all three wins on good ground but also has form on yielding to soft.

Betting Forcast

4/1 Rookie Trainer, 9/4 Keepthefaithinme, 12/1 Moonlight Beam, 11/2 Caius Marcius, 7/4 Glen Ava

Verdict

Glen Ava bids for a fourth consecutive C&D win and it's reasonable to expect her to give it a very good shot from the front but another chance can be given to the aptly named KEEPTHEFAITHINME (nap), who shaped like a stayer when a clear winner over 2m4f here two starts ago and probably allowed the leader too much rope when second here last time.[Chris Wilson]
