Verdict

JUST MINDED looked on a fair mark for his handicap/chase debut but fell four out at Carlisle 17 days ago. A winner over hurdles and in a bumper, he is bred to do well in this sphere and looks worth another chance with less on his plate and with that pipe-opener under his belt. Ninepointsixthree left his chasing bow well behind when a three-length third ay Ayr latest and, with possibly more to come, looks most likely to capitalise if the selection falters. The Lucinda Russell-trained Celtic Flames is respected now switched to larger obstacles having shown some promise over timber.

Verdict

It remains to be seen how CHARLIE SNOW ANGEL copes with this marked drop in trip, but he has plenty of experience over the larger obstacles (winning pointer) and is more than capable of winning a race under Rules from his current mark. Just Minded fell on his debut over fences, but still appeals as a chaser in the making, so is feared most.
