12:05 – Lady Tremaine

This can go to the lightly raced 7yo LADY TREMAINE, who justified favouritism when beating a clear second on her handicap debut at Bangor last month and is open to further progress. Last year’s winner Dame Du Soir is feared most on her switch back to hurdling, though Astra Via knuckled down well when scoring over C&D in October and she’s respected back from another break.

12:40 – Git Maker

Port Or Starboard should give it another good shot and he’s a key player, along with Extraordinary Man, who was a much-improved second behind an odds-on rival at Huntingdon last time. Last month’s course bumper winner Marco Island should have a future at this new discipline, while David Pipe’s Pachacuti is also respected on his quick switch to hurdling. However, the vote goes to GIT MAKER, who is out of a half-sister to a useful hurdler and was bought for £105,000 after his impressive Irish point win in May.

13:10 – Drenagh

Hatos travelled strongly for a long way when third in a bumper here last month and is respected on his hurdling debut, but slight preference is for DRENAGH, who finished placed in both his bumpers early in 2020 and returned from a long absence with a close call on his switch to hurdling at Bangor four weeks ago. Another who could get involved is Ballybeen, who has a striking pedigree and has shaped with some promise in his two hurdle runs this season.

13:40 – Ask A Honey Bee

Triple bumper and dual hurdle winner ASK A HONEY BEE has shown clear promise in both his chase runs this season and his latest second at Exeter was behind a subsequent Grade 2 winner. He is in vastly calmer waters today and can make his breakthrough over fences, with Captain Cuckoo the most plausible of his two remaining opponents.

14:15 – Dom Of Mary

Dual heavy-ground winner DOM OF MARY has leading claims on his second start for David Bridgwater, while Mahon Point warrants respect on his second run for Fergal O’Brien. Market confidence behind rules debutant Crossing Lines and/or nicely bred newcomer Helios De Grugy should be heeded.

14:50 – Can You Call

Topweight CAN YOU CALL is well worth another chance. He fell last time but remains interesting on his C&D effort in November, as that form has worked out very well. Galop De Chasse looks open to further improvement and is feared most, ahead of Early Du Lemo and Gingembre Menthe.

15:20 – Garincha

Top of the list is the lightly raced GARINCHA (nap), who hit a clear personal best when forging clear in a Wetherby handicap on Boxing Day and is a major player again under a penalty. Helios Allen is open to more progress in only his third handicap and he’s feared most, though Jaunty Viking could make another bold bid on his drop back in trip. The well-handicapped C&D winner Caswell Bay looks interesting on his step back up to 2m3f, while another to consider is Kenny George who ended last season with two good efforts in the mud.

15:50 – Gemirande

Preference is for Venetia Williams’ unexposed chaser GEMIRANDE, who was successful on testing ground over fences in France and returned to this sphere with a clear second behind a major improver at Southwell last month. Second choice is The Mighty Arc, who has raised his form to a new level in his two chase runs this season and is open to more progress. Another to consider is Destin D’ajonc, who shaped with promise on his recent reappearance and is now only 1lb higher than for his C&D win last February.
