Bookmakers are just favouring Inn The Bull for the 2m3f handicap hurdle on the card and that’s understandable as the Alan King-trained hurdler ran a good third over 2m here 12 days ago when up against a couple of handicap blots. He also has a fitness advantage over the next in the betting, Venetia Williams’ Lady Karina, who has been off since beating Lamanver Odyssey (a good winner recently) at Hereford in January, although she’s probably the best long term prospect.

However, the pair may struggle to give weight to Warren Greatrex’s GROUNDUNDERREPAIR, whose reappearance third at Wincanton (2m5f, good) gives him every chance on form. The good ground on that occasion looked plenty quick enough for him and while he’s more exposed than his two main rivals, he looks to have strengthened up after his summer break. Well entered up later in the week, his trainer’s decision to run here can be vindicated as his stamina will be an asset in the testing conditions and he also benefits from Ben Hicks’ 10lb claim.
