NOT ON YOUR NELLIE (best price 12/1) is proving expensive to follow this season but she’s ran well the last four times, including over course-and-distance last time when fourth in a better race, and drops down in grade off a three pounds lower mark here. She’ll appreciate the return to better ground (soft last time, not ideal) and she came close to winning this twelve months ago off a mark of 75 when beaten just a neck. This time round, she’s seven pounds lower and Sophie Clements takes off an additional further seven pounds, technically leaving this mare fourteen pounds lower than last year. If the cheek-pieces have the desired effect, there’s no reason why she can’t go one better this time.

GLEN AVA (best price 15/2) found the intermediate distance happening all too quickly for her on stable debut here back in May but she stuck to the task well to take fourth. She made no mistake when stepping up to this trip earlier this month, seeing off Petite Rhapsody and a two pounds rise looks reasonable on the balance of that form. She was given an uncontested lead that day but I think she would have won by further without making a meal of the second last hurdle, as she did extremely well under the circumstances to rally and get back up in the closing stages, winning more in hand than the margin indicated. Open to more improvement than most on just her third handicap hurdle start, she’s fancied to supplement her latest victory and complete the double over track and trip under similar positive tactics.

I have tipped THUNDER LEGEND (best price 9/4) the last twice and while he’s not been able to add to his impressive victory at Hamilton last year in three starts for William Haggas, this is the time he can be rewarded for his consistency, in which he can make a mockery of this current mark. His latest second, at Chester, is a benchmark piece of form, as the winner Outpoint, was defying a mark of 99 and the third Bullet Force, won next time out off a mark of 84 at Beverley. His penultimate third, at Haydock, was another excellent effort in defeat, as the winner Jimi Hendrix finished third in the Britannia off 87 and the fourth Million Thanks, should have won off 82 at Beverley next time. With first-time headgear fitted as he drops down in trip to six furlongs, he should prove to be a horse who’s ahead of his initial mark and can therefore confidently get back on the scoresheet.

The Milton Harris-trained SONGO (best price 3/1) is a progressive stayer and made it two-from-three for the year when winning at Salisbury last month, tracking the pace throughout before quickening to score with a bit to spare. He’s very well-treated off a mark of 75 here, especially when you take into account that the runner-up has subsequently defied a mark of 78 to significantly adverse the strength of the form-lines. A winner of four of his six starts in this sphere already, and the drop back in trip looking no issue, his stamina should come into play in the latter stages, which could be too much for last year’s winner Tralee Hills and Lady Reset. Big chance.

Jim Boyle has trained the winner in two of the last six runnings of this race and he could well make it three with the well-treated MARLAY PARK (best price 13/2) who makes a lot of appeal with Hollie Doyle booked for the job. He does remain four pounds above his last winning mark, but saves his best for this course, which reads a win, a second and third from three previous visits. He’s drawn nicely in five and looked back to form when fourth at Leicester last time. His previous win here was decisive and his two defeats saw him only beaten less than a length in each of those. This race is littered with well-treated individuals but the selection has the valuable course form and should give another solid account of himself under Hollie Doyle.

HYANNA (best price 9/4) is normally seen in stronger events than this and finds herself fourteen pounds below her last winning mark which gives her strong claims here under Hollie Doyle. She won on her only visit to this course and has reached the frame numerous times off marks in the 90’s in mostly class two events. I am aware she’s not as good as once was, but this race isn’t the strongest and if Hollie Doyle can work her magic, this seven-year-old mare might just teach her younger opponents a lesson or two on the downs.
