In depth

Verdict

TAKINGITALLIN won a bumper on soft ground and completed a double over hurdles on good going during the summer. A winning point-to-pointer, she's never been this far over hurdles but should have no problems staying on this easy track. The Drone completed a double over 3m at Southwell in the spring and will be better for his run over fences at Fakenham last month. He's only 3lb higher than his last victory so looks a threat. Carrigmoorna Matt won two sellers in the spring but couldn't handle the step-up to Class 3 company at Hexham and was well beaten and though Winningtry won three races for Paul Nicholls he hasn't run for two years. Oathkeeper has been racing in slightly better company but is on a very long losing run.
