Tends to come into his own around this time of year, as past performances show, and his last run at this track (his last outing) finished 2nd/9 23.5F, G/F Cl 5.
That was 27th last month. took the lead 4 out only to be pressed 2 out and getting caught nearing finish to lose by 1.5L to favorite "Valentino" who was a bit disappointing on it's follow run 6 days ago carrying 3lb more, and does nothing to bolster the chances of Kendelu here.
He has won over this shorter distance at Uttoxeter, being shorter than his last outing should therefore not be a worry, The going today of G/F is similar to his last outing here. Sitting proudly in the saddle today will be jockey Kieren Buckley with a 5lb claim for trainer Nigel Hawke. Together they brought " Galore Desassences" home in first place on the 11th this month at this track. Look likely to repeat that feat with Kendelu today.
it is easy to see why norley is so short as his last win was so easy and rated lower.
but i am taking chance at the odds on this one as he was just beat by norley two races back length and half.
he is 8 lbs better of which should be enough but way norley won since and this one weakened in 5th his last race makes it look like one has went one way and this one the other,has been round the stables to but he got wind op and showed nothing then last three races put blinkers on and he has ran alot better , he is bred to jump well and it is possible with all his problems he just taking time to get over them and if he runs like he has lately every chance he could at least place.
Won over course and distance off just 3lb lower in March on this type of ground and was going well here again until falling at the final fence last time out off this mark. That run came after 175 days off the track so it was a good effort which should put her spot on for today provided she has no ill effects from the fall. A 6yo who should still be improving and a nice price to boot.

Going with a novice in his first handicap and could go well, even though he does look a bit high in the weights.
In three of his four races, he has not beaten that far, with the other being pulled up, which was on soft ground, today’s good ground will play to his strengths.
This handicap has several horses that can put in sterling runs but the rest of the fourteen runners could be making the line up, which can be said about this one.
Trainer Tracey Leeson is not a trainer I know well but she could be well capable of getting this youngster to be ready to run well.
The five year old gelding is well bred being by Dylan Thomas and dam sire Moonax.
Chris Ward claims five pounds and can help assist the horse.
this selection is trained by Sue Gardner , has been racing over mixed distances from 16.5 to 20 furlongs , with one win and two 2nd places ,in last six races, with best effort to date a 2nd place finish over the distance of 18.5 furlongs, racing over 19 furlongs in todays contest, ground should suit, Lucy Gardner is back in the saddle, has ew appeal
There are some strong horses in this Class 5 race, but I want to bet on the underdog. Whataboutwalt represents the very successful Claire Harris stable of late. Today's jockey David Prichard has also had excellent stats of late. Therefore, we can assume that Whataboutwalt will at least fight for a top five finish, which would be a good result for our tournament. His third place at Plumpton in January suggests that Whataboutwalt could be making some progress

Last time out winner at Stratford over slightly further, back in March. Second from that race has won twice since. Up 4lb for that victory, which is not insurmountable. Yard have a 21% strike rate (47% place rate) in the last fortnight, with a 37% place rate in the last month. They also have a 41% place rate with their last time out winners, as well as a 38% place rate with their runners returning off of a 60+ day break. Tom Bellamy rides here, and he has a 32% place rate in the last fortnight, as well as a 50% place rate here in the last year, and a 21% strike rate (39% place rate) when teaming with this yard in the last year.
After going chasing for 18 months he returned to win some good chases against fair company . After 8 months off he returned in a good race at wetherby and finished last but would have needed the race. He will get the distance and the going he wants and I feel he is a bit better class than some of these here today. An ew chance .
Philip Hobbs runs three and a case can be made for all of them but
I like this one. Will strip fitter for his run 22 days ago on 4th Nov.
which was his first run since 24th March. That last run was over
3m 52yds in a class 2 finishing 3rd of 10 under 10st 5lb. Only has
a couple of lb’s extra today with 10st 7lb but his fitness now
should compensate. Has usual jockey T O’Brien is on board and
good to soft ground will suit.
One For You was third on season debut and that was over course and distance,he should strip much fitter now and can get back to winning form as he had before the end of last season.The Hobbs yard have been going well so far this season and this horse is only a six year old so we are likely to see more improvement from him this season.This track suits and he can go well again here.
Harry Skelton regains the ride on board Shannon Bridge. From ten rides on this gelding, he has finished in the first three on seven occasions.
Shannon Bridge's second best career run came at 24.5 furlongs with give in the ground on the left handed galloping track at Doncaster and he should be suited by today's conditions.
He has won a Class 2 handicap hurdle with 15 runners and another race carrying 11-8 (carries 11-7 today).
Shannon Bridge has won in the month of November.
Recent form may not be relevant as he has twice won following a poor run.
The stable has had several recent winners.
