1. (3) 3-70060 Cupid's Glory Linda Jewell 5-9-07 Liam Keniry
Steps up markedly in trip - this is a furlong further that he has ever gone before and he has been running over seven furlongs recently. Too risky after being well beaten last time. BP= 20/1

2. (5) 70-1086 Cactus King P Phelan 4-9-04 Ian Mongan
Well beaten in two hurdles recently. Pulls hard but this jockey managed to win a race over course and distance in April with a 1 lb lower rating. BP= 8/1

3. (7) 24250-0 Obrigado (USA) Karen George 7-9-03 George Baker
Came back after a year off when pulled too hard here last month. Has won twice from 15 all-weather runs, most recently at Kempton in April last year off a similar mark. Well treated if fit. Worth taking a chance with. BP= 14/1

4. (1) 152242- Victor Trumper Peter Chapple-Hyam 3-9-03 Fergus Sweeney
Very consistent sort who has yet to race over beyond a mile. Beaten a short-head at Southwell just over a year ago on most recent start. Could be anything but confidence does not appear strong. BP= 9/2

5. (2) 432323 Mafeking (UAE) M R Hoad 3-9-00 Andrew Elliott (3)
Races consistently but has trouble winning. Third twice and second recently in races over this course and distance. Claimer takes 3lb off which may help. No value. BP= 11/8

6. (6) 884704 Dragon Slayer (IRE) Paul Blockley 5-9-00 Greg Fairley
Pulls hard. Ran best race for a while here over course and distance when a short-head behind Mafeking. BP= 9/2

7. (4) 313213 Lorikeet Noel Chance 8-8-10 James Doyle
Has run poorly over hurdles recently. Has won here three times but over a minimum of 13 furlongs. Forget. BP= 16/1

8. (8) 424876 Highland Harvest David Elsworth NON-RUNNER

SUMMARY
The clear value is Obrigado.
