9 yo Mare

OR: 104

Form & Verdict
Took this contest 12 months ago and she teed herself up well for a repeat when fading fifth of seven in 2m4f Southwell handicap a fortnight ago; she should be spot on now and merits serious consideration off a 1lb lower mark than for that win.

Yet to score for his current yard kept hurdling but he posted a good fourth in 3m Southwell handicap 36 days ago; goes back chasing now and this ex-Irish chase winner can't be ruled out.

Betting Forcast

4/1 Pardon Me, 9/4 Friary Rock, 2/1 Raddle And Hum, 10/1 Young William, 12/1 Ensel Du Perche, 7/1 Golden Chancer

Verdict

Friary Rock commands plenty of respect on his first go over fences for Laura Morgan but preference is for last year's winner PARDON ME, who can race off a 1lb lower mark here and should also be spot on after her recent Southwell fifth. Ann Duffield's new recruit Raddle And Hum and chasing newcomer Golden Chancer can't be ruled out either in an open handicap.[Peter Entwistle]
