This looks to be between the two previous hurdle winners. Isolate is respected now back down in grade, but preference is for the four-year-old STEPNEY CAUSEWAY, whose form has plenty of substance. Tashunka has a trip query at 2m, but still looks best of the remainder.
Lightly raced JEMIMA P hit a clear personal best with her Exeter win and is open to further progress over fences. She gets the vote ahead of the versatile Brave Jaq, who has finished runner-up over fences and hurdles in his last two starts and still looks feasibly treated in this sphere.
The Dan Skelton-trained Embole could be a key player now back on better ground, but this could go to MIZEN MASTER – who lines up on favourable terms. Ferrobin and Chieftain’s Choice are others to consider in an open seller.
Preference is for FLEMCARA, who got back on the scoresheet at Doncaster in December and was a creditable third behind an improver at Exeter last time. Emma Lavelle’s gelding now drops back in grade and he’s a big player if he’s unfazed by this return to quicker ground.
The main threat could come from Holdbacktheriver, who is a strong stayer at this trip and is well treated if he can bounce back on this return to hurdling.
3m just stretched MIDNIGHTREFERENDUM in a Listed mares’ chase at Exeter last month and today’s slightly shorter distance could prove ideal. She gets the nod ahead of Rocco, who is the only other contender to arrive on the back of a good run. Baron De Midleton could have a big say if returning to form on this first run since wind surgery.
Canastero and Tamango are interesting contenders from the Hobbs and Murphy stables respectively, but the selection is the lightly raced eight-year-old DONT PUSH IT PALL. He ran well for a fair way on his recent return from a long absence and has potential in this scenario. Billy Ray and 2019 winner Our Rockstar could also run well.
The suggestion is DAN GUN (nap), who should be unfazed by the conditions and is well treated on his first run for Dan Skelton. The lightly raced Potters Vision is a possible improver on her step back up in trip and she’s feared most.
Although, Quivvy Lough is another who still has potential and looks interesting back on quicker ground on her first run after wind surgery. Others who could have a big part to play are Sissinghurst and Freddy Fanatapan.
Get Sky High sets the standard and she should make another bold bid back on turf, but preference is for Alan King’s CRYSTAL MOON. He made a highly promising start with his near miss on good ground at Plumpton four weeks ago, and that can be marked up because he stumbled on the home turn.
Okhotsk has finished runner-up on Polytrack in her last two starts and has each-way claims again, while the newcomers Fabstroke and Gigabit need checking in the market.
