Full result

Well on top at the finish when opening chase account at the third attempt at Kelso (21.6f, good). 7 lb rise tolerable and, with the promise of better to come in this sphere, he makes plenty of appeal.

Off the mark in this sphere and over hurdles at Musselburgh in February 2020. Rather disapponting at Newcastle on last month's belated reappearance, though, and best form has come on soft/heavy going.

Back to form at Carlisle the last twice, latterly landing a Class 2 handicap with a first-time tongue strap enlisted. However, up 7 lb and things rather went his way on that occasion.

Off the mark at third attempt over fences when making all at Newcastle in December. However, failed to complete next 2 starts and while he got round at Sedgefield last time, his jumping was sketchy.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

MANNOCHMORE was beaten 13 lengths when fourth to Roxboro Road at Musselburgh in March, but he subsequently improved when scoring at Kelso and there should be more to come from this 6-y-o. Furthermore, he meets Ben Haslam's charge on 17 lb better terms now. Roxboro Road is still second choice, despite rocketing up the weights, given that Relkadam is likely to find conditions too lively here.

Betting Forecast

11/4 Mannochmore, 12/1 First Account, 17/2 Well Above Par (Ire), 14/1 Victory Echo (Ire), 16/1 Ardera Cross (Ire), 40/1 Schmidt (Ire), 8/1 Relkadam (Fr), 66/1 Alf 'N' Dor (Ire)
