Arkle Trial Runner by Runner

1. Claimantakinforgan

Trainer - Nicky Henderson

Jockey - Jeremiah McGrath

Claimantakinforgan has some smart form over hurdles, including when finishing fifth of 19 in the Supreme Novice behind Summerville Boy here at the Festival eight months ago.

He beat a decent rival at Uttoxeter on his chasing debut, and looks a serious contender for the Arkle if performing well here.

2. Defi Du Seuil

Trainer - Philip Hobbs

Jockey - Barry Geraghty

Top juvenile hurdler two seasons ago, but has none been in the same fettle since.

Philip Hobbs is back to form, and perhaps it is best to forgive his two runs last term.

Got his ideal ground conditions, as the 2016 JCB Triumph winner looks to get off the mark over fences at the first time of asking.

3. Dynamite Dollars

Trainer - Paul Nicholls

Jockey - Harry Cobden

Good performance from Dynamite Dollars on his chasing debut at Market Rasen, beating Highway One O One, who won at smartly at Carlisle latest.

Yard have an excellent record in this race in recent years, and could be a potential future stable star.

4. Lalor

Trainer - Kayley Woollacott

Jockey - Richard Johnson

A Grade 1 novice hurdle winner at the Grand National meeting at Aintree back in April, and demands respect for Kayley Woollacott on his chasing debut.

He beat Vision Des Flos and Bedrock - two horses in excellent form seven months ago, and is surely another who must enter the reckoning on that basis.

5. One For Billy

Trainer - Dan Skelton

Jockey - Harry Skelton

Ran so well here three weeks ago, before running out through the tapes up the run in.

Seemed to be going better than anyone that day, and form beforehand looks strong.

Cannot be ruled out, and is another who surely will be in the frame in this close looking contest.

6. Pingshou

Trainer - Colin Tizzard

Jockey - Tom Scudamore

Smart novice hurdle form; featuring an Aintree Grade 1 win back in 2017, but has been off since, and very much an unknown quantity over fences.

Not to draw a line through, but the outsider in this classy field.
