  1. Didtheyleaveuoutto (SP) – A veteran with a potentially lenient mark, seeking to rediscover form; could surprise if returning to best. [Best Odds: 20/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  2. Dallas Des Pictons (18/1) – Showed glimpses of ability in the past but recent form leaves questions; needs a significant rebound. [Best Odds: 20/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  3. Immortal Fame (7/4) – In prime form seeking a hat-trick, despite a weight rise, remains a formidable contender. [Best Odds: 7/4; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  4. Step Above (8/1) – Consistent and showing gradual improvement; could be in the mix if building on recent performances. [Best Odds: 9/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  5. Grand Voyage (SP) – Faces a tough challenge to return to form after recent disappointments; an outsider today. [Best Odds: 25/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  6. Nab Wood (15/8) – Fresh from a C&D victory and open to further improvement; a leading contender. [Best Odds: 15/8; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  7. Pavlik (22/1) – Has shown ability but needs to bounce back from a lacklustre return; watch the market for clues. [Best Odds: 25/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  8. Eloi Du Puy (6/1) – A rising talent disrupted by a fall last time; if unscathed, could challenge the top selection. [Best Odds: 11/2; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  9. Maimie’s Magic (17/2) – Unproven at this distance and coming off a break; needs to prove stamina and form. [Best Odds: 9/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]

Verdict:

Nab Wood is poised to build on his recent course and distance success, marking him as the horse to beat. However, Immortal Fame poses a significant threat, aiming for a third consecutive win despite the weight increase. Eloi Du Puy should not be underestimated, especially if fully recovered from his last outing. This race promises to be a closely contested battle, with Nab Wood slightly edging out as our top pick.

  1. Primoz (5/2) – Displayed potential in previous outings, including a victory that showcases his ability to lead the pack. [Best Odds: 11/10; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  2. Tedtwo (11/2) – Coming off a strong performance, Tedtwo looks poised to build on his recent success, marking him as a serious contender. [Best Odds: 2/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  3. Alnilam (3/1) – After a promising fourth at Newbury, Alnilam enters with expectations of improvement and could surprise many. [Best Odds: 4/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  4. Ballyfort (16/1) – Showed fair form in previous starts but will need to step up to challenge the leading contenders in this field. [Best Odds: 16/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  5. Boot ‘N’ Shoe (20/1) – Modest efforts thus far; significant improvement required to make an impact here. [Best Odds: 20/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  6. Breizh River (SP) – Demonstrated some potential in bumpers but has yet to translate that form over hurdles. [Best Odds: 20/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  7. Dapper Gent (50/1) – Returns from a lengthy break with a lot to prove; best watched today. [Best Odds: 50/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  8. Flying Sandpiper (66/1) – Faces a stiff test on hurdles debut; expectations are modest at best. [Best Odds: 66/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  9. Last Mission (100/1) – An outsider with limited showings over hurdles; a major turnaround needed. [Best Odds: 100/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  10. Northern Cardinal (25/1) – Showed some promise in a bumper but has struggled to carry that form into hurdles racing. [Best Odds: 25/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]

Verdict

Tedtwo appears well-placed to capitalize on his upward trajectory, posing the biggest challenge to Primoz, who seeks to reclaim top form after mixed results. Alnilam offers an intriguing proposition as a dark horse capable of upsetting the favourites with expected improvement. This race is poised to be a tactical affair, with Tedtwo slightly favoured due to his progressive form and potential for further development.

  1. Jungle Jack (11/2) – Returning after wind surgery with a solid track record; if returning to form, could be a key player. [Best Odds: 11/2; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  2. Carnfunnock (SP) – Exhibited potential in previous runs; the shorter distance could be a test, yet remains a contender. [Best Odds: 5/2; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  3. Ginger Mail (SP) – A consistent performer who has shown adaptability and skill in similar conditions; a strong candidate. [Best Odds: 11/2; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]

  5. Ilanz (5/1) – Victorious in the latest outing, faces a stiffer challenge here but cannot be discounted. [Best Odds: 5/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  6. Bois Guillbert (16/1) – Needs to overcome recent form but has shown capability on softer grounds; an outside chance. [Best Odds: 16/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  7. Slugger (SP) – A novice winner with potential; the recent performance dip is a concern, yet retains an element of unpredictability. [Best Odds: 14/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  8. Cracking Rhapsody (9/2) – Shows progressive form and could capitalize on favorable terms to challenge for the win. [Best Odds: 9/2; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]

Verdict

Cracking Rhapsody stands out as the one to watch, carrying forward a wave of progressive form into this race. Ginger Mail and Jungle Jack pose significant challenges, each with proven abilities that could see them across the line first. However, the edge goes to Cracking Rhapsody, whose upward trajectory suggests he’s ready to take on and surpass this competition.

  1. Richmond Lake (11/2) – Despite a mixed recent form, Richmond Lake possesses undeniable quality and a return to top form could see him make a significant impact. [Best Odds: 3/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  2. Empire Steel (13/8) – Showed strong form in recent outings and seems well-suited to the conditions at Kelso; a leading contender for victory. [Best Odds: 13/8; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  3. Nells Son (10/3) – Consistent performer with a credible chance, offering value as a potential dark horse in this competitive field. [Best Odds: 10/3; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  4. Whoshotthesheriff (SP) – Looking to bounce back from less convincing recent runs; may find this race a challenging proposition. [Best Odds: 25/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  5. Ned Tanner (SP) – After a recent promising finish, Ned Tanner enters with outsider odds but could surprise if conditions play to his strengths. [Best Odds: 7/2; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]

Verdict

Empire Steel stands out as the top selection, entering with strong form and a well-established record at Kelso. Richmond Lake and Nells Son are poised as credible threats, each bringing a blend of experience and capability to the fore. Empire Steel’s affinity for the track and recent performances edge him as the favorite in what promises to be a closely contested race.

  1. Giovinco (4/5) – Demonstrated significant prowess in recent outings, particularly shining in a two-runner race. If participating, this contender is the one to beat. [Best Odds: 4/5; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  2. Special Rate (3/2) – On an impressive winning streak, having secured four from his last five starts over fences, including a victory over course and distance. [Best Odds: 3/2; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  3. Imperial Merlin (9/2) – Showed promise as a novice hurdler and has translated that form over fences; faces a challenging task but cannot be overlooked. [Best Odds: 9/2; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]

Verdict

Special Rate emerges as the prime candidate, especially if Giovinco does not run, showcasing both form and adaptability in recent races. His ability to handle the course and conditions at Kelso positions him as the likely victor in this tribute race. Imperial Merlin offers intriguing value as an outsider, presenting potential for an upset with his evident talent and promise.

  1. Marshalled (7/1) – Shows potential over longer distances, though his latest effort suggests he may find this trip slightly sharp. Best form comes on quicker ground. [Best Odds: 8/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  2. Escapeandevade (6/5) – Coming off a career-low mark victory at Sedgefield, now faces a 5lb rise. Conditions seem favorable for another strong performance. [Best Odds: 6/5; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  3. Dubai Days (7/4) – A course and distance winner; the shorter trip poses a question after his last outing but remains a solid contender. [Best Odds: 7/4; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  4. Salamanca Bay (SP) – Has yet to impress over fences this term. Needs to overcome recent form to challenge the frontrunners in this race. [Best Odds: 7/2; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]

Verdict

Escapeandevade stands out as the horse to beat, with recent form indicating he is well-suited to the conditions of this race. Dubai Days could provide the main challenge, especially given his proven ability over course and distance. Marshalled may need to prove he can handle the shorter distance effectively, while Salamanca Bay looks to rediscover form. Escapeandevade’s recent win suggests he’s in prime position for another victory.

  1. Balking (11/2) – A newcomer to watch, with the yard having a reasonable success rate in bumpers last season. Market movements pre-race will be telling. [Best Odds: 20/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  2. Blue Plan (3/1) – Related to a bumper winner, making his debut here. Worth monitoring in the betting for any positive signs. [Best Odds: 33/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  3. Bridge Court (SP) – Runner-up in an Irish point, but the yard’s bumper form is a concern. An outsider for a reason. [Best Odds: 16/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  4. Cushendun (9/1) – Showed consistency in two outings at Ayr but needs to step up to trouble the principals here. [Best Odds: 9/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  5. Dedicated Hero (9/2) – Offered promise on debut and could be a key player returning from a break. [Best Odds: 9/2; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  6. Lance Les Des (25/1) – Debutant with a flat pedigree, where the market will likely offer clues about expectations. [Best Odds: 25/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  7. Malicash (SP) – Third over C&D on debut before a less convincing follow-up. Has potential if returning to debut form. [Best Odds: 16/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  8. Theonetowatch (25/1) – Made late headway in his debut, suggesting potential. Worth consideration for a place. [Best Odds: 25/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  9. Yakaleo (13/8) – Impressive close third on debut; with natural progression, he’s the one to beat. [Best Odds: 13/8; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  10. Disco Annie (SP) – Struggled on rules debut and now tries a hood. Likely to find this challenging. [Best Odds: 40/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  11. Santapietra (5/1) – Costly purchase after a promising point-to-point; debut under rules could be telling. [Best Odds: 5/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]
  12. Authorized Mission (SP) – Low-key start in debut, seeking improvement here. [Best Odds: 12/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Betvictor]
  13. Wor Lad (SP) – Yard’s modest bumper record tempers expectations. [Best Odds: 40/1; Recommended Bookmaker: bet365]
  14. Caledonian Pearl (12/1) – Didn’t meet expectations in debut but could improve. [Best Odds: 12/1; Recommended Bookmaker: Unibet]

Verdict

Yakaleo emerges as the standout choice, with a strong debut performance signaling high potential for victory in this field. Dedicated Hero and Santapietra present themselves as formidable contenders, each with credible claims based on promising starts and high expectations. Yakaleo’s performance at Musselburgh sets a high standard for his rivals to match.
