  • Age: 5 years old+
  • Runners: 8
  • Prize: £12,200

Eased in weights/refitted with blinkers belatedly added to sole chase success at Ludlow (25.5f) 17 days ago, albeit in a race that rather fell apart. 7 lb higher mark makes things tougher.

Successful in 3m Southwell handicap chase in November but that was a standout effort over fences, tailed off some way out at Cheltenham (25f) last month. Needs to show benefit of that run to feature.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

A winner at Stratford last summer, BBOLD ran right up to his best on the back of 6 months off when third at Ludlow (23.8f) in April. He's now refitted with cheekpieces, and this sort of mark looks within range, so he gets the nod to come out on top. This is competitive however, with Empire de Maulde, Flying Verse and Boughtbeforelunch heading up the dangers.

Betting Forecast

13/2 Boughtbeforelunch (Ire), 14/1 Reve, 12/1 Flying Verse, 8/1 Mance Rayder (Ire), 13/2 Empire De Maulde (Fr), 9/1 Ocean Cove (Ire), 14/1 Court Dreaming (Ire), 11/1 Beau Du Brizais (Fr)
