12:00 – Hartur d’Oudairies

Hartur d’Oudairies ran out a ready winner of a bumper at Le Mans last year and is of obvious interest having since been purchased by JP McManus and sent to Dan Skelton. Skelton has his team in top form at present – he sent out three winners at Cheltenham’s November meeting – and Hartur d’Oudairies gets the vote on his hurdling debut.

12:30 – Fontaine Collonges

Fontaine Collonges shaped with obvious promise on her chasing debut at Wetherby last month, impressing with her strength at the finish over an inadequate trip. Fontaine Collonges looks sure to appreciate this step up to two and a half miles (from two miles) and she is open to plenty of improvement. She should prove difficult to beat if stepping forward as expected for this stiffer test of stamina.


13:05 – Queens River

Queens River was purchased for £330,000 by JP McManus after winning her only start in an Irish point and she has joined a leading trainer in Nicky Henderson. She is clearly an exciting prospect and looks to have been found a nice opportunity, facing only two rivals who have prior experience under Rules.

13:40 – Edwardstone

This is an interesting novice chase, featuring a few decent prospects, but the one who makes most appeal is Edwardstone. He showed smart form over hurdles last season – he was third in the Betfair Hurdle and fifth in the County Hurdle – and he looked set to go close in a novice chase over this course and distance two weeks ago but was brought down at the fourth-last. Edwardstone, who is a strong, lengthy gelding with the physique for chasing, was travelling powerfully and looking dangerous before being knocked out of the race. He can gain a measure of compensation here.

14:15 – Getalead

Getalead was arguably flattered to finish runner-up at Ludlow on his reappearance and first start for Claire Harris as there was an element of picking up the pieces, but he took a big step forward to score at Wincanton last month, the step up in trip to two miles and five furlongs (from two miles) unlocking some improvement. Getalead won only narrowly, but the front pair pulled four and a half lengths clear of a subsequent winner in third, so a 5 lb rise in the weights may not be beyond this lightly raced type.


14:50 – Now McGinty

Now McGinty hasn’t been seen since disappointing in the 2019 Welsh Grand National almost two years ago, but he has been given a big chance by the handicapper, allowed to compete off a 7 lb lower mark on his return. Now McGinty looks well treated based on the pick of his form, which includes a win over subsequent Ladbrokes Trophy winner De Rasher Counter and a close-up second to Santini in a listed race. He will be tough to beat if retaining most of his ability, and he is worth siding with.

15:20 – Bonnet

Bonnet is a half-sister to two winners, including the fairly useful hurdler Lethal Steps, and she shaped with promise when runner-up on her debut at Exeter last month. It’s difficult to be confident about the strength of that form but it was certainly an encouraging start to her career and she looks the one to beat.
