Runner by Runner Guide


Trainer: Emma Lavelle
Jockey: Aidan Coleman
Odds: 1/4
Form: 1111-1
Comments: “Champion Stayer who beat Thistlecrack by a length on reappearance in the Grade 2 Long Walk Hurdle at Newbury, earlier this month. The best by some way in this division and should be winning this pretty comfortably as the odds reflect.”
Runner Jacket


Trainer: Debra Hamer
Jockey: Tom Bellamy
Odds: 10/1
Form: 221-13
Comments: “Went very close in the Pertemps at the Cheltenham Festival and has since gone on to win a decent handicap and was a solid third in a Listed race the last day. Despite this not being the strongest Grade 1 this still requires a considerable step up in form.”
Runner Jacket


Trainer: Nicky Henderson
Jockey: Nico de Boinville
Odds: 14/1
Form: 381/7-
Comments: “Absent since May 2018 but a very smart hurdler on his day and a proven Grade 1 performer. Won the Grade 1 Aintree Hurdle on penultimate start and on the form would certainly be a player, lay off suggests he probably needs the run, though.”
Runner Jacket


Trainer: Tom George
Jockey: A P Heskin
Odds: 14/1
Form: 6P9-13
Comments: “Smart hurdler who won the Grade 2 Bet365 Hurdle on reappearance beating Unowhatimeanharry by seven lengths. Couldn’t follow that up next time when beaten seven lengths in third. Likely to be involved once more in the placings.”
Runner Jacket


Trainer: Oliver Sherwood
Jockey: Leighton Aspell
Odds: 20/1
Form: 1431-1
Comments: “Won back to back Mares Listed races and comes here in top form, this a whole different test though against the boys in Grade 1 company. Still progressive though and may outrun odds.”
Runner Jacket


Trainer: Nick Williams
Jockey: Davy Russell
Odds: 28/1
Form: 9P7-44
Comments: “Won an apprentice handicap here back in May, not been up to this sort of level for a while and looks up against it once more.”
