Fairly useful Flat maiden who showed fair form in this sphere in 2018/19. Probably needed the run back from a long absence in handicap at Taunton last month, but something to prove nonetheless.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

The lightly-raced GUSTAVIAN came a long way clear of the remainder with an improver at Chepstow last time and could well benefit from a well-run race down in trip, so he gets the nod in an open-looking handicap hurdle. Hasankey returned to form and shaped better than the result at Leicester on his latest outing, so he's feared most ahead of the likeable Bard of Brittany.

Betting Forecast

9/2 Gustavian (Ire), 9/1 Hollywood Ken (Ire), 9/1 Amelia's Dance (Ire), 13/2 Hasankey (Ire), 20/1 Zafar (Ger), 16/1 Neff (Ger), 12/1 Jaisalmer (Ire), 20/1 Olympic Honour (Fr), 5/1 Bard Of Brittany, 40/1 Perfect Predator, 14/1 Furkash (Fr)
