  1. Diamand De Vindecy 20/1 (bet365) – A challenging contender that has yet to show its full potential. Stamina remains a question, but improvement is possible with a tactical ride.
  2. Chankaya 11/1 (Unibet) – This veteran showed promise in November but has been inconsistent. A return to form could see him challenge for honors.
  3. King Of The Road 12/1 (bet365) – Despite modest results, this entrant enters handicapping with a yard in form. Worth considering for a surprise performance.
  4. Getuptheyard 12/1 (Betvictor) – Displays modest achievements but enters handicapping at a realistic level. Could find this company more to his liking.
  5. Mini Yeats 14/1 (bet365) – Showed potential before an unexplained poor run. A bounce back is on the cards if returning to form.
  6. Bruce Gobbler 17/2 (Unibet) – Unproven in handicaps but the step up in trip could unlock improvement. A dark horse in this field.
  7. Imperial Measure 3/1 (Betvictor) – A disappointing favorite last time out but has previously shown talent. Conditions could play to his strengths.
  8. Tribesmans Glory 15/2 (bet365) – A mixed bag of results but has demonstrated the ability to compete. A return to prior form would make him a contender.
  9. Gardons La 25/1 (Unibet) – Difficult to back with confidence due to refusal issues and inconsistent performances.
  10. Citizen Jane 13/2 (Betvictor) – Has shown some promise in handicaps and could be in the mix with a slight improvement.
  11. Dora’s Addrezz 28/1 (bet365) – Enters handicapping with questions to answer but could surprise if showing hidden potential.
  12. Irlandais 20/1 (Unibet) – Faced challenges on handicap debut but any improvement could see him outrun his odds.
  13. Russies Dream 33/1 (Betvictor) – A longshot with little to recommend on recent form. Would need a significant turnaround to feature.

Verdict

An intriguing contest that looks wide open. Imperial Measure is favored to rebound from his last outing’s disappointment, showcasing his known capabilities on this stage. However, Mini Yeats and King Of The Road present themselves as potential usurpers, each harboring untapped potential and coming from yards showing recent form. Bruce Gobbler could be the dark horse of the race, poised for improvement with the change in trip. Ultimately, Imperial Measure’s class and prior form could edge him to victory, but the race promises competitive dynamics, with challengers ready to exploit any slip-ups.

  1. Cawthorne Banker 11/1 (bet365) – Showed promise in bumpers, yet to translate that form over hurdles. A return to earlier promise could see an improved showing.
  2. Cornish Storm 9/2 (Unibet) – Demonstrated capability with a runner-up finish at Wincanton. Could be in the mix with a similar effort here.
  3. Doyen Quest 7/2 (bet365) – Solid performance in a Chepstow maiden suggests potential for further development. A key contender.
  4. Ilfonce 200/1 (Betvictor) – Struggled in previous outings and would need a significant reversal of form to feature.
  5. Palawan Du Mazet 200/1 (Unibet) – Has not shown enough in previous starts to suggest a threat in this field.
  6. Seren Y Teigr 50/1 (bet365) – Lacks convincing form, making it hard to back with confidence.
  7. Solar System 12/1 (Betvictor) – Related to winners and capable of improvement. Could surprise if taking a step forward.
  8. The Cypriot 20/1 (Unibet) – Uninspiring in bumpers, but any improvement in hurdles could see a better performance.
  9. Walkingoneggshells 11/1 (bet365) – Showed promise before a downturn in form. The addition of a hood might help regain focus.
  10. Bob O Rhino 200/1 (Betvictor) – Struggled in initial hurdling efforts, difficult to see contending here.
  11. Roseburg 100/1 (Unibet) – Showed some promise in a point bumper but has yet to carry that form over hurdles.
  12. Golden Move 10/11 (bet365) – A high-caliber recruit from the flat, expected to make a significant impact on hurdling debut.
  13. What An Icon 200/1 (Betvictor) – Limited maiden on the flat and faces a stiff challenge transitioning to hurdles.

Verdict

The spotlight firmly rests on Golden Move, transitioning from a successful flat career under the guidance of Paul Nicholls, with expectations high for a debut win in hurdling. Doyen Quest and Cornish Storm emerge as the principal challengers, each bringing solid credentials that could exploit any lapse from the favorite. Solar System presents an intriguing option as a potential dark horse, ready to step up. The race appears set for Golden Move to showcase his class, yet the competition from Doyen Quest promises to make it a closely contested affair.

  1. Enjoy Your Life 7/2 (bet365) – Has shown he can be a force, but recent performances have left some questions. A return to form could see him challenging for the win.
  2. Mumbo Jumbo 7/1 (Betvictor) – Despite recent struggles, he’s poised on a mark that suggests he could be competitive on his best form.
  3. Not At Present 10/3 (Unibet) – Showed promise before a mishap last time out. Less taxing conditions here could help him find the winning thread.
  4. Lubeat Foras 8/1 (bet365) – Struggling to find form over fences and needs to address jumping concerns to factor.
  5. Airtothethrone 6/5 (Betvictor) – Was in contention before falling in his last outing. If he can navigate this course cleanly, he stands a strong chance of redemption.

Verdict

In a race that appears open on paper, Airtothethrone is tipped to make amends for his last fall, coming in as the favourite with form that suggests he’s capable of overcoming his recent setback. Not At Present emerges as a serious contender, especially if he can replicate his form prior to his last fall, making him the main threat to the favourite. Enjoy Your Life has the ability to mix it with the best here, but he’ll need to bounce back to his best to secure victory. Given his competitive mark and prior form, Mumbo Jumbo could surprise and provide value as an outside choice. The race sets up for an intriguing contest, with Airtothethrone positioned to lead the charge towards the finish line, assuming he can maintain his composure over the jumps.

  1. Wild Max 12/1 (Betvictor) – A prolific winner returning from a break. Market movements should be monitored closely for this seasoned competitor.
  2. Lallygag 9/1 (Unibet) – Switching back to hurdles after less convincing efforts over fences. On a fair mark, he has the potential to surprise.
  3. Wolf Prince 20/1 (bet365) – Comes off a quiet run; faces a stiff task but has shown ability in the past that could see him outperform expectations.
  4. Now Or Never 28/1 (Betvictor) – French import that didn’t impress on UK debut. Would need significant improvement to feature here.
  5. Vicki Vale 7/2 (Unibet) – Consistently in the mix in her handicap outings. Returning to this distance could be the key to unlocking another victory.
  6. Into The Park 15/8 (bet365) – Showed promise with a commanding win last time out. Faces a tougher challenge but is tipped for success.
  7. Inca De Lafayette 11/4 (Betvictor) – Impressive in two of his seasonal starts. If he can replicate that form, he’ll be a major player.
  8. Celtic Art 12/1 (Unibet) – Well-handicapped and could find the softer ground more to his liking, making him an interesting outsider.
  9. Current Mood 25/1 (bet365) – Needs to show more than her recent form suggests to be considered a contender in this competitive field.

Verdict

Into The Park stands out as the one to beat, carrying significant potential into this race off the back of an impressive victory. Inca De Lafayette and Vicki Vale emerge as the main threats, each bringing strong form into the contest. Wild Max and Celtic Art offer value as dark horses, with the former looking particularly intriguing if returning in peak condition. This race promises to be a compelling contest, with Into The Park positioned to continue his ascent up the ranks, assuming he can translate his recent form to this higher level of competition.

  1. Lalor (bet365) – Former high-class handicapper showing potential in hunter chases. Encouraging second last time out suggests he’s a leading contender here.
  2. Lieutenant Rocco (Unibet) – Exhibited quality in the past but needs to bounce back from a tepid hunter chase debut. Potential for redemption at appealing odds.
  3. Say About It (Betvictor) – Has victories under regulation fences but faces a challenging task against stronger opposition in this field.
  4. My Reprieve (bet365) – Showed promise against a quality former Nicholls charge in recent point-to-point. Worth watching in the market.
  5. Broadclyst (Unibet) – Experienced in point-to-points but needs to improve on recent form to make an impact here.
  6. Drop Flight (Betvictor) – Consistent runner-up in hunter chases last season. Capable of a respectable performance and could offer value.
  7. Haven’t Time (bet365) – Off since last spring but has shown ability in the past. If returning in form, could surprise at generous odds.
  8. Macklin (Unibet) – Impressive in point-to-points, winning four of his last five starts. Strong form suggests he’s the one to beat.
  9. Rewritetherules (Betvictor) – Has seen better days and would need to rediscover past form to feature. Long odds reflect current expectations.
  10. Singapore Saga (bet365) – Capable on her day but needs to overcome issues with heavy ground. An outsider with potential for improvement.

Verdict

Macklin stands out with compelling point-to-point form, making him the top pick in this field. Lalor brings quality experience into the race and is expected to be the main challenger, with his recent hunter chase performance indicating readiness for a big run. Drop Flight and My Reprieve are seen as dark horses, capable of delivering strong efforts. With conditions to suit, Macklin is poised to continue his winning ways, assuming he translates his point-to-point prowess to this hunters’ chase with aplomb.

  1. Lady Balko (bet365) – Dominant last time at Hereford, carries a penalty that looks unlikely to stop her. The one to beat if she maintains her form.
  2. Cooleenymore (Unibet) – Consistent performer who is due for a win. Faces a stiff challenge but expected to put in a solid effort.
  3. Bridget Mary (Betvictor) – Starting her handicap career off a modest mark, she could surprise now stepping into handicap company.
  4. Ginderella (bet365) – Her recent form suggests she’s on the cusp of a win. Likely to be in the mix and a strong contender against the favorite.
  5. Sindabella (Unibet) – Won in December but didn’t impress last time. Needs to bounce back to form but has shown she can compete at this level.

Verdict

Lady Balko is the standout selection following her impressive victory last week. She seems well-placed to follow up under a penalty. Ginderella and Cooleenymore are seen as the main dangers, with both poised to challenge if Lady Balko falters. Bridget Mary offers intrigue as a potential improver stepping into handicaps. The race is Lady Balko’s to lose, but her rivals will be ready to capitalize on any slip-up, making for an exciting contest.
