Initially stiff-looking mark is finally assuming more realistic proportions, but form of 14l-16l defeats this autumn needs building on significantly; mixed signals up to now as to whether 2m4f is required.

Two chase wins at 2m7f in November (soft and good to soft) but he's run poorly on heavy on two most recent starts over fences and now returns to hurdles; further rain unwelcome but place prospects anyway.

Pulled up at Chepstow three weeks ago but the heavy ground may have been too much; in good form previously, including front-running wins in November at Stratford (2m6f, soft) and over this C&D (good to soft), and no surprise if he bounces back with a big performance today.

Good-ground bumper winner who was runner-up in a Ffos Las maiden (2m, good) in May but he's not gone on from that in two runs since; ran respectably in a Ffos Las handicap (fourth of ten) in August but he needs more back from a short break and this return to soft ground is a concern.

Verdict

Admirably consistent since winning this race 12 months ago, SAMATIAN should be fine on today’s slower ground and is selected to defend his crown. Unexposed 5yo Smart Casual makes his handicap debut from a lowly mark and is feared most. Uncle Arthur is also of significant interest, given the strong market support that preceded his fleeting stable/chase debut.[Chris Wilson]
