Mikhailovich

11st 11lb

J: Kai Lenihan

T: Kim Bailey

The ground was good when showing much improved form to win on his return in a Huntingdon handicap (2m3f, good) and perhaps the 9lb rise found him out at Market Rasen, although conditions were good to soft that day; if the ground did dry out he would need considering with useful 7lb claimer Kai Lenihan employed this time.

J: David Bass

T: Kim Bailey

Pulled up on handicap debut at Huntingdon (2m3f, soft) in March but was an entirely different proposition on good ground on his reappearance there (2m3f) last month, winning easily; a 9lb rise may not stop this unexposed 6yo if today's conditions are in his favour.

Form & Verdict

Unexposed 5yo who ran big race in defeat on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good; first-time tongue-tie) in August; nudged up only 1lb for that and remains very much of interest.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

Maiden after nine runs but was having only his second attempt at chasing when going down narrowly in a small field at Leicester a month ago (2m, heavy); tongue-tie is working well for him and he should be on the scene.

Seemingly aided by addition of tongue-tie this season, runner-up twice over hurdles before last month's creditable third on chasing debut at Hereford (2m5f, good); not sure to be ideally suited by today's different trip-and-ground combination but still features prominently in calculations.

Form & Verdict

Came good over hurdles with convincing win at Southwell (2m4f, good to soft) in March and was runner-up on her next three outings (2m4f-3m1f); not seen since very laboured effort in July but has claims here if refreshed by 99-day break.

Third start back from a long absence when scoring over 2m4f at Uttoxeter last month; form of that race might be suspect but he may well be capable of better and he's only 4lb higher; acts on soft and in the shake-up.
