Fergal O’Brien’s mare only really disappointed in one start under rules and that was in a very warm bumper at this track, but she’s proved to be a different animal over obstacles.

She’s had some good form to her name over hurdles this summer and won her last start at Worcester when back down in trip.

Now, she tackles unchartered waters and is upped to three-and-a-quarter miles for the first time in this sphere but did win her point-to-point so is fancied to make a successful start under Paddy Brennan.

NB: ELKSTONE | 2:30pm Welcome Back To Huntingdon Racecourse Handicap Chase

Caroline Bailey’s 10-year-old hasn’t been seen since a course-and-distance win here a year ago but he’s only off a 2lb higher mark here compared to that day.

Sean Bowen steered Elkstone to a Huntingdon success in September 2020

He won this race off that mark two years ago so looks well treated despite the lack of a recent run and could be worth chancing at the value with Sean Bowen jocked up.

Plenty arrive here in good nick but his track history and market price make him the most appeasable selection in this contest.
