A small group of runners that have recently featured at Aintree have been declared on Bangor’s card on Tuesday afternoon.

Flying Verse, who finished back of the pack in a 3m1f Handicap Chase on the Merseyside track back in June, returns to action at an enticing mark for David Dennis.

He makes his first start since rejoining Dennis from Matt Shephard’s yard, with the gelding now 5lbs below his last winning mark over fences.

The nine-year-old will benefit from former Champion Jockey Brian Hughes in the saddle and he will be one to watch out for in the three-mile handicap chase at Bangor.

Ocean Cove, who claimed fifth in the same contest at Aintree, has also seen a steady decline in the ratings after struggling in recent weeks.

Fergal O’Brien’s recruit finished 53 lengths ahead of his rival in Merseyside, but he has finished 16 and 23 lengths off the pace on his last two starts.

The nine-year-old is 5lbs below his last winning mark, but he does have something to prove here.

Alan King’s Outonpatrol is stepped back up to three miles for the first time in four months, after a promising effort at Worcester last month.

The seven-year-old just found one too good on her last start, but she could well have more to offer over this distance.

The 5lb claimer booked in could benefit her and she does hold some interest in the contest.
