12:10 Treasure Dillion

The obvious starting point is the hat-trick-seeking Be The Difference, but Phil Kirby’s 5yo is up another 11lb and preference is for TREASURE DILLON, who made an encouraging return from a long absence at Chepstow last month and looks very well treated. Golden Glory and Auenwirbel are others with each-way claims.

12:40 Fine Casting

Port Or Starboard (second choice), runner-up over C&D last month, looks sure to go well, while Spike Jones, fifth in the same race, is open to plenty of improvement and unlikely to be far away either. But the vote goes to FINE CASTING, who won a bumper last winter on heavy ground and is going the right way over hurdles.

13:15 Ashfield Paddy

The most solid option is ASHFIELD PADDY, who has a good recent run to his name at Bangor over this sort of trip, but there are several unexposed types in opposition, headed by Honorary Colonel and also including Southern Sam, Oneupmanship, Party Fuzz and Poldark Cross.

13:50 Dalamoi

A half-brother to the high-class staying chaser Don Poli, DALAMOI should be suited by the step up from 2m and can follow up last month’s course win under a penalty. Bowtogreatness was shaping well in the C&D maiden won by Lydford Lad and can prove the main threat, ahead of Crossing The Bar.

14:25 Credo (NAP)

Anthony Honeyball sets a poser by running two mares with appealing profiles. Coquelicot scored for the first time over hurdles at Chepstow last month and should go well again, but her stablemate CREDO (nap) is completely unexposed and should improve for today’s longer trip. She gets the vote, with topweight Anythingforlove the other one to consider.

14:55 Powerful Position

Although he was pulled up on his most recent start, Ballybreen retains potential as a staying chaser and is high on the list, but the one to be on could be POWERFUL POSITION who proved well suited by 3m in the mud when scoring here last month and may follow up. The hat-trick-seeking Danilo D’Airy was progressing in leaps and bounds in the spring and could be the main threat if tuned up after a break.

15:25 Vengeance

With no form to go on, the market needs watching closely, but the two candidates with the most attractive profiles on paper are Blue Hop and VENGEANCE. Tom George’s son of Soldier Of Fortune was the most expensive purchase in the line-up and makes plenty of appeal on pedigree. Narrow preference is for Tom Lacey’s 3yo who can make the most of the weight he receives from all of his opponents.
