Confirmed promise of her eye-catching yard debut when readily shedding maiden tag at Worcester (20f) 9 days ago. Wisely turned out under a penalty and very much on the shortlist.

Confirmed promise of her eye-catching yard debut when readily shedding maiden tag at Worcester (20f) 9 days ago. Wisely turned out under a penalty and very much on the shortlist.

Verdict

GONE PLATINUM has a very good record at this track and he won a similar race to this here in May. Last time out, he was only denied by a head and another 3lb rise in the ratings may not be enough to stop him from being successful. Field Exhibition won with plenty in hand at Worcester last week and is an obvious threat under a penalty, while Cafe Au Lait completes the shortlist.

Verdict

FIELD EXHIBITION has looked a different proposition for her recent yard switch, opening her account with a fair bit in hand at Worcester 9 days ago. That effort suggested more success may well be in the offing and she can follow up under a penalty. Gone Platinum and Cafe Au Lait both arrive in form and should also feature.

Showed further improvement to make it 3 wins from 4 starts for the season at Newton Abbot last week and remains very much one to follow.

Verdict

Plenty of these have claims but the nod goes to LOTUS POND, who has won both of his starts since returning from a spell between the flags. The handicapper has hit him with a big rise but he did it very easily last time out and may have more to offer. Fifty Shades is another in-form participant who can be expected to go very well for the yard that sponsors this race. Others to consider are Amore Alato, Lamb Or Cod and More Buck's.

Verdict

The progressive FIFTY SHADES remains very much one to follow and can defy a penalty. The thriving Lotus Pond is the biggest threat ahead of Super Scorpion.

Poor in bumpers and fared no better in a first-time hood sent hurdling when well held over C&D last month.

Verdict

COURT ROYALE bumped in a high-class rival when finishing second on his racecourse debut last November and both of his subsequent performances have been encouraging. The switch to hurdles should suit and may even bring about some improvement in Evan Williams' gelding. Joueur Bresilien has lost his way over fences recently but he cannot be discounted, while Massini's Dream is the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

There was plenty to like about COURT ROYALE’s 3 bumper runs and he makes plenty of appeal now switching to hurdles in a race lacking depth. Joueur Bresilien is respected on the pick of his form back over timber.

Won 3 times over hurdles for Tim Vaughan and shaped with promise on May's stable debut following an absence. Checked out quite tamely at Hexham since and cheekpieces now tried.

Verdict

Nicky Henderson's BARKIS combined well with Alan Doyle when scoring at Newton Abbott last week and having escaped a rise for that victory in a conditional jockeys' contest, he can follow up, with the only penalty being his rider losing 3lb from his claim in the interim period. Last-start course winner Grams And Ounces has to be considered, while Caviar D'Allen is interesting reverting to hurdles and having had a wind operation since finishing second at Fakenham in the spring.

Verdict

BARKIS ran out a ready winner under this rider at Newton Abbot last week, and given he escapes a penalty for that, his follow-up claims must be bright. This is a deeper race though, with Caviar d'Allen a definite threat, while money for Take The High Road starting out for David Pipe would look very significant.

Improved to readily win 11-runner handicap hurdle at Worcester (20f, good) 9 days ago. Escapes a penalty as that was a conditionals' event and the one to beat even though this a stronger race.

Verdict

VOODOO DOLL has proved a tough nut to crack the last twice and is backed to land the hat-trick having only been raised 2lb following his narrow victory at Worcester. Court Duty impressed when eight lengths clear at that same venue last week and he escapes a penalty so is a big danger. Burst Ya Bubble and the consistent frame-hitter Coeur Tantre are others who warrant respect.

Verdict

A competitive field but it's still hard to get away from COURT DUTY who escapes a penalty for last week's easy win at Worcester and is effectively 5lb lower if Richard Patrick's claim is taken into account. Burst Ya Bubble, the hat-trick seeking Voodoo Doll and Dan Skelton's Starcrossed are all on the shortlist.

Shown a bit in bumpers at Catterick and Southwell and should have a future over jumps. Hood goes on.

Verdict

HILLARY C was second beaten by less than two lengths over course and distance last time and having left her disappointing debut well behind that day, it would be no surprise to see her go one better to take this. Ring The Moon followed home two useful prospects when third on his final start in Ireland, and The Lion Roars and Georgiator are two newcomers to note.

Verdict

HILLARY C ran a blinder in second in a steadily-run event over C&D in May and looks the one to beat. Newcomers The Lion Roars and Georgiator both make a fair bit of appeal.
