Not many of these can be recommended on their most recent efforts, though Glengar still has hopes of improvement off a modest mark.
Preference is for HIDDEN CARGO (NAP), who ran well against an improved rival on his debut for this trainer at Bangor and ought to have a golden opportunity here in a very ordinary race.
Triple Irish hurdle winner St Lawrence Gap starts off for Olly Murphy on a workable chase mark and needs to be taken very seriously, but perhaps it might pay to chance MON PALOIS.
Kim Bailey’s 8eight-year-old reverted to hurdling after taking a heavy fall on his second chase start in 2018, but now begins his second spell as a chaser and could still have untapped potential in this sphere.
Buster Thomas and Shoal Bay are others to consider.
A tight handicap that should be run at a good clip, as Mcgroarty, Croco Bay, Fanzio and Hatcher have all won from the front.
Ruth Jefferson has been very quiet, but DOUBLE W’S has a lot in his favour if he’s ready for business – while Hatcher is second choice.
Useful Flat-racer Ginistrelli has significant potential to progress from his Uttoxeter hurdle win a fortnight ago, but the bare form is nothing out of the ordinary and he may struggle to concede 11lb to RUBYTWO.
Nicky Richards’ mare looks exposed after 10 hurdle starts but will be suited by good ground, and the pick of last year’s handicap form gives her a good chance here.
Grania O’Malley is very well handicapped if today’s return to hurdling triggers a return to form but a safer option is EMMA LAMB, who bumped into a well-handicapped rival when second at Uttoxeter a fortnight ago.
Local Affair came good on her latest outing and might have more to offer, while Deputy Jones will also enter the equation if attracting some market support.
There are hopes that Flint Hill will improve on his debut in an ordinary juvenile hurdle at Market Rasen in March, but ENEMY COAST AHEAD did well to muster the pace to beat a fairly useful Flat winner here recently and he can follow up despite the penalty.
Shareef Star has been a letdown over hurdles so far, but his Flat ability makes him hard to ignore.
The safest option is TEL’ART, who could well cope with a 9lb rise for his win here 18 days ago if holding his form. Jac Brown has solid claims and he’s second choice, ahead of Voodoo Doll.
Preference is for CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, who ran well here on his return and has given the impression stamina is going to be his forte.
Prophets Prayer is another with the benefit of a recent run and he’s the danger.
