Bucks Dream

Getthepot has been on an upward trajectory this season. He was a convincing winner in a 17-runner handicap on his penultimate start but disappointed last time out so preference is for Bucks Dream. The Bowens charge didn’t have much luck last year when racing in Novice company but has since been switched to handicaps and fared well here a few weeks back. He was a promising second behind Beau Haze who has since come out and won again. That looks to be the best form on offer here and the good ground and step up in trip seemed to spark improvement last time. If in the same kind of form he should go close.

Taylors Three Rock

Emmas Lamb has 12lb in hand over her nearest rival with a rating, so something will have to improve dramatically to give her a problem here. With a really bad run at Exeter last time, we’re keen to get at her with something that could take a step forward. Taylors Three Rock posted an RPR of 101 in her bumper in Ireland and ran a massive race on her hurdles debut last time. Lit up and doing it from the front, she looked like she might hold on turning in but was denied by a more experienced rival. If she can settle better here, she has every chance of taking a step forward again.

Clondaw Rigger

This is full of types which seem to struggle to get their head in front, with only three managing a win last season. Clondaw Rigger certainly falls into that category having failed to score for almost two years. On the surface, recent form doesn’t look great either with 63F-3 from the last four outings but he would have likely won when falling at the last at Chepstow in April and has since put in a solid placed performance over C&D when losing a shoe. He’s 2lbs lower now and will have Shane Quinlan on board to take off a further 5lbs. There's not much which stands out in this field and he could be the each-way bet.

Top Beak

Top Beak’s form stands out head and shoulders above the rest of the field with 3 wins from his last four starts, the last of which was an impressive four and half length victory under Bryony Frost at Fakenham. His form over 2m4f reads well with two wins from two and looks to be the best horse in this field. He’ll have to put in a mighty performance to overcome the penalty he’s carrying from his last outing but does have Jason Dixon taking off a useful 7lbs. It’s difficult to make a case for too much else in here and we’re backing him to lug the weight to victory.

About Ffos Las Racecourse

The newest national hunt course in the country, Ffos Las was built on the site of a former coal mine and opened in 2009 by Sir Peter O’Sullevan. In that time the course has hosted both Arabian and harness racing, in addition to the more traditional flat and jumps cards.

For a track little over a decade old, it’s worth noting that it has already acquired the Welsh Champion Hurdle which was revived in 2010 for the track with subsequent Grade 1 winners The New One, Saphir Du Rheu and Oscar Whisky all landing the race in the last decade.
