Timeform on Robyndzone
Major Jumbo - 18:30 Chester
Major Jumbo has contested the last two renewals of this listed contest, finishing second in 2018 before going one place better 12 months ago, winning easily on that occasion by three and a half lengths. That form comfortably sets the standard in this line-up, and he looks unlikely to give up his crown without a fight having shown he retains all his ability in three starts this season, including when beaten just a length and a half in a similar event at York last time.
Azzuri - 14:15 Southwell
Azzuri proved disappointing in 2019/20, trailing in last or being pulled up on each of his final three starts. Admittedly, he took a step back in the right direction after a breathing operation when second over this C&D last time, but his in-and-out profile suggests he is far from certain to build on that effort, while a 5 lb higher mark appears to leave him with a stiff task at the weights, even on his best form.
Robyndzone - 13:15 Southwell
23% - Paddy Brennan's strike rate at Southwell
Robyndzone has made an encouraging start to his chasing career, making it two wins from three starts when successful at Bangor last month. He appeared to have plenty in hand on that occasion, too, keeping going well after hitting the front before the last to win comfortably by three lengths. That form sets the standard here on weight-adjusted ratings - even with a 10 lb hike in the weights taken into account - and his scope for further improvement suggests he can mount a bold hat-trick bid under Paddy Brennan, who has enjoyed plenty of success at Southwell in recent seasons.
