THE 2021 RACE

-----------------------------------

Truckers Lodge. 9 Year old and previous winner of the Midlands National. Had a poor year last year and best watched for a return to form.

El Presente. Good young 8year old gelding. Consistent form and winner of this race last year. Fell last time out and that has not left a mark then he could go close.

Potterman. Consistent improver. 2nd in this race last season. Winner, of the Bet365 Grade 3 at Sandown at the end of last season (1st past the post was disqualified). and had the Smart Kitty's Light in behind. Runs well fresh. Good chance.

Some Chaos is well exposed but a good horse. Comes here on the back of a run and a win this season. Has a chance but will need to look out for younger improvers.

Highland Hunter. A young horse from Paul Nicholls yard. Well fancied as trainer targets and does well in this race, but possibly more than bare form shows. Loves very soft ground.

Storm Home. Two good wins in summer and does not look quite good enough. Fell on last outing at Exeter in early Oct.

Irish Prophecy won here last time out. In form and has chances with a little improvement.

Double Shuffle, A fine old chaser who was once second in a King George. Looks to have too much on his plate today but is sure to run well.

Ofalltheginjoints. Young 7 year old needs a lot of improvement to be involved in the finish here.

Hurricane Harvey. Nice young progressive horse. Will have to improve here today but gets in with a low weight.

Very Nice 8 year old horse who runs well in races but is finding winning just out of his reach most of the time. Certainly good enough if on form but possibly better watched today.

Rocco. Runs well but too much improvement is needed here and best overlooked today.

Innisfree lad. Runs well when he hits a form streak but I doubt if he is good enough for this race today.

Coup De Pinceau. Some good form but beaten by Irish Prophecy here a few weeks ago. Can't see why that should be overturned.

Cobra De Mai. Nice horse but seemed out of sorts last season. Better runs this season but more improvement is needed.
