LANGAFEL had a couple of subsequent juvenile hurdle winners in behind as he made all at Newton Abbot six weeks ago and looks good for another victory under a penalty. Corporal Jones and The Bravest are interesting rivals starting out in this sphere.
KING’S PROCTOR shaped well when runner-up at Cartmel last time, so this one-time fairly useful Flat stayer is taken to open his account. Splinter, despite a lesser effort at Bangor on Friday, holds solid claims too on his Southwell second the time before if taking his chance. Meanwhile, newcomer Low Profile arrives fit and in-form from the level, so is worth considering too.
Following a highly impressive winning chasing debut at Uttoxeter, TARDREE may have found the race coming too soon when only third in a stronger race at Southwell five days later. He’s worth another chance to build on that having been allowed more of a break now. High Noon goes well at this track and should give the selection plenty to think about.
MR MAFIA still has plenty of life in his legs as a 12-year-old and might be capable of getting his head back in front. Wishfull Dreaming is feared after his latest Cartmel second. Elsewhere, Fitzroy didn’t impress with his jumping at Hexham last time, but his record suggests he’s possibly better going right handed. He may bounce back and also play a prominent role.
There’s likely more to come from CHIVES, who is fancied to defy the assessor again and make it 3-3 in handicaps. You Name Him may provide the chief threat unless the betting speaks strongly in the favour of Olly Murphy’s returning handicap debutante Celtic Tara.
Cases can be made for many, but it could be worth siding with BOLT N BROWN, who ran creditably despite producing a typically lazy display when runner-up at Uttoxeter last week and can go a place better back up in trip here with the visor reapplied. Decoration of War keeps hitting the frame and he could provide the main threat, ahead of Czech Her Out and Southfield Torr.
A few in with a shout, but Olly Murphy has his string in excellent nick and handicap debutante MINI CREST looks ready to take a big step forward now she moves up in trip after a considerate return at Huntingdon. Ceara Be is weighted to have a big say if building on her Southwell fourth and is next on the list, ahead of in-form Oasis Prince who should benefit from dropping in trip.
BONTTAY is out of a bumper winner and should be well prepared by her shrewd yard for this initial racecourse experience. She is marginally preferred to Mourne Lass, who didn’t quite come up to expectations when third at Hexham on debut, but is obviously quite well regarded. Sister Sophie is the pick of the remainder.
