14:08 Buck Bravo

This wide-open handicap hurdle can go to Monday’s Newton Abbot winner BUCK BRAVO. He is unpenalised for that success and is a C&D winner, so should appreciate the return to this trip. If he fails to show his form on this quick return, Overworkdunderpaid might be able to cash in, especially if the rain arrives. Cottonvale was back to form at Warwick last time and looks best of the rest.

14:43 Sizing At Midnight

A fascinating novice handicap chase that looks sure to throw up plenty of future winners. SIZING AT MIDNIGHT won well at Newton Abbot last time on his third start over fences and can make that experience count against several promising chasing newcomers. Wayfinder might prove best of those, while Heavey and Summit Like Herbie are others with chances.

15:18 Ballinsker

It might be worth siding with BALLINSKER. He looked good when winning on his hurdles debut at Ludlow last year and will find this easier than when fourth in a Listed event at Haydock last time. Stimulating Song is better than he was able to show at Kempton last time and gets preference over Milkwood as the alternative.

15:53 Who Shot JR (NAP)

The return to a longer trip can bring improvement from WHO SHOT JR (nap) and he is taken to break his duck over fences at the second attempt. He shaped well on his chase debut at Newton Abbot last month and should find this easier. Minella Examiner goes well fresh and looks the biggest danger ahead of the well-handicapped Still Believing.

16:30 Mere Anarchy

The key horse in many respects is Dancing In The Sky, who will have strong prospects on his winning recent form over fences provided he readjusts to this discipline. He is much respected but slight preference is for MERE ANARCHY, who encouragingly won on the Flat last month when back from a break. Vinnie’s Getaway is shortlisted too.

17:00 Tanrudy

A weak handicap chase. It might be worth forgiving TANRUDY a disappointing run after a quick turnaround at Fontwell last month. He had previously made a promising reappearance at that track and shouldn’t have a problem with the drop in trip. Another Tuco looks capable of better now he is dropped in class and rates the biggest danger, while the in-form Joly Maker is likely to go well again.

17:35 Fleursals

The two juvenile hurdlers Fraterculus and To Fly Free bring recent placed form but neither has compelling claims so the vote goes to FLEURSALS, who was flying too high on her last two starts over hurdles but is in more realistic company on her handicap debut and may have benefited from a recent breathing operation. Khanisari is undeniably well treated but is not the most reliable so perhaps the biggest threat may come from top weight Cogital, who scored on the Flat last month and may be able to build on two ordinary hurdling displays.
