11:50 Gredin

If Top Of The Bill jumps better than at Lingfield he’ll be very dangerous, but he’s still a maiden and the vote goes to GREDIN, who was notably professional when scoring at Carlisle, form which has since been franked. Westwood Ryder, from the powerful Henderson stable and a promising second in a bumper on his only start, is another to consider.

12:20 Stepney Causeway

Sao and especially Commis D’Office are likely to be adding to last season’s successes in the next few months, but it’s hard to get away from STEPNEY CAUSEWAY, a winning machine in juvenile hurdles and whose chasing debut was boosted in no uncertain terms when the winner followed up in a Grade 1 last week. Granted a clear round, the 4yo should be hard to beat.

12:55 Fantastikas

The likeable Threeunderthrufive sets a useful standard, but FANTASTIKAS looked a natural chaser on his debut over fences at Lingfield and is selected to take the step up in class in his stride.

13:30 Rock On Rita

It’s possible to make a case for most of these, including Misty Bloom who looks interesting under 10lb claimer Jack Wildman, but the eye is drawn to ROCK ON RITA at the foot of the weights. The selection, a winning pointer, hardly set the world alight in novice hurdles but she has had a break and could be thrown in off a mark of 84.

14:05 Takeit Easy (NAP)

This warm handicap, featuring plenty of thriving or unexposed sorts, can go to TAKEIT EASY (nap) whose form is rock solid. He can confirm his Wetherby superiority with Tommy’s Oscar, although that rival is again likely to provide stern opposition. Third on the list is the lightly raced Sonigino, while a market move for that one’s former stablemate Lucky One would be significant.

15:15 The Wolf

It’s not difficult to construct a case for topweight Two For Gold, representing last year’s winning stable, but the year-younger THE WOLF may have a bit more potential and looks the one to beat. Kauto Riko and the selection’s new stablemate Jett are well handicapped on their best form, while Fidux has race fitness on his side and is another contender in an absorbing finale.
