Just the 4 go in this Class 4 handicap chase race. Really isn't much to split between a lot of them. Outsider of the 4 Dorking Lad goes with new headgear for the first time to see if that has the desired effect. Goes in bottom weight here.
Our Power goes here with a chance providing the fall at Doncaster hasn't knocked the confidence out of him. Our Power is only 3 pounds higher than his win at Wincanton the time before the Doncaster fall.
Slight market favourite Barbados Blue (At time of writing) has been come a unlucky 2nd twice in a row recently (One being a 2nd course and distance here) which may put you off but being a 4-runner race will have a chance.
Preference for me though is for Mahler's Promise. Another who hasn't been out the top 2 in his last 4 runs certainly has the consistency and is lower in the weight than the top 2 in the market. Another win is due round the corner for Mahler's Promise I believe and fancy him getting the better of his 3 opponents today
MAHLER'S PROMISE (WIN)
A juvenile hurdle race. Obviously still a lot of these horses very inexperienced. But there is one I like at a fairly big double figure price. Kotmask was impressive at Fontwell winning by 12 lengths though you could argue what was behind him that day doesn't shout out a strong piece of form.
Rewired should improve for his second at Kempton last time out and winner looked very impressive that day. Parliament Hill won at Leicester but again the runners behind him doesn't make you stand up and take notice will have improved for that run though.
One I do like at a big price and is my selection is Genuflux. Milton Harris is having a successful season as a trainer. If you can forgive his Chepstow run which something may have been a miss. His form behind Porticello at Wetherby doesn't look that bad now. who you could argue is one of the better Juveniles in the UK this season.
Cheekpieces have been added and if this has had the desired effect. Genuflux could well outrun his odds at around 16/1 (at time of writing) certainly each way play
