A bit to prove for all of these. SOME CHAOS has cheekpieces added and wouldn’t want too much rain, but he is still preferred to Timoshenko and Cool Destination who have to overcome slightly lacklustre latest outings.
She’s A Novelty is an interesting contender for Fergal O’Brien after some promising efforts in defeat on the Flat but COULONCES has already shown herself to be a sound enough jumper of hurdles and she lost nothing in defeat behind a Flat winner at Southwell recently. Winfola came to grief on her hurdle debut but looks one of the more likely place contenders along with Misstree Song and Get In Robin.
Although coming back after a break having lost his form last autumn, this can go to DEAD RIGHT who had been running well earlier in that campaign. Haul Away looks an obvious threat but will need to jump much better than on his first run over fences.
It’s possible to make a case for several of these but the most solid ones include AUTHORIZO, Percy Street and Beach Break. Preference is for the former, who has made steady progress since joining this yard and could still have plenty more to offer.
His Dream will be suited by the return to further but GRAY DAY showed that all is not lost with a close third at Uttoxeter last month and he is very realistically placed in this company. Most of the remainder have something to prove but the selection’s stablemate The Cattlejobber is worth a second look now returned to hurdles.
The consistent Scartare and Hurricane Vic are finding it very difficult to get their heads in front and it might be better to look elsewhere. Joly Maker would seriously enter calculations if there is market support but the vote goes to ARMATTIEKAN in the hope that new blinkers can unlock a bit of progress.
Vocaliser would be high up the shortlist if there is market support for him but, without that evidence, preference is for GRAND COUREUR (nap). He has produced two solid efforts this summer and won’t mind what the weather does. Do You Know What is also respected, along with Captain Speaking.
The form of his recent chase second looks quite strong and it would be no surprise to see COOL COUNTRY go one better in this company. Iconic Hero will be a big threat if reproducing last week’s performance, while C&D winners Tim Rocco and Centreofexcellence also deserve respect.
Le Boulevardier should be able to find a race of this nature before too long but it would be no surprise to see the Warren Greatrex-trained newcomer WELLNTYNE make a successful debut. Mini Crest is best of the rest.
