17:48 – Ted Hastings

TED HASTINGS made it two from three over hurdles with an impressive victory at Cartmel last time, leading on the bridle on the home turn and quickly drawing clear from there to land the spoils by seven and a half lengths with plenty in hand. He is very much the type to go on improving and this looks another weak contest which he should just win before going on to bigger and better things for Gordon Elliott, who is seeking his fourth success in this race since 2011.

18:20 – Byzantine Empire

BYZANTINE EMPIRE was well on top at the finish when making a successful chasing debut at Southwell last month, showing fairly useful form to beat Restandbethankful by seven lengths in a good time. Restandbethankful gets an 8 lb swing in the weights today, but Byzantine Empire is open to so much improvement that he is fancied to confirm his superiority for Fergal O’Brien, who has his team in rude health (72% of horses running to form).

18:50 – Ballyquin Bay

BALLYQUIN BAY took a step forward when filling the runner-up spot on his most recent outing at Cartmel, keeping on well to pass the post less than four lengths behind the winner. That form sets the standard in this maiden and it’s highly unlikely that we’ve seen the best of him yet after just four starts over hurdles. The drop back in trip today won’t be an issue and it will be disappointing if he can’t make the most of what looks a good opportunity to get off the mark.

19:25 – Hermann Clermont

HERMANN CLERMONT showed improved form to gain a deserved victory over this course and distance last time, hitting the front between the final two fences and always doing enough from there to land the spoils by two lengths. The manner of that win suggests he was full value for a 4 lb rise in the weights and his two rivals today both have plenty to prove having run poorly last time. With that in mind, Hermann Clermont rates a very solid selection to follow up.

20:00 – Caius Marcius

CAIUS MARCIUS is well into the veteran stage of his career, but he showed that he still retains plenty of ability at the age of 11 when finding one too good at Market Rasen last time. He was beaten less than three lengths and the way he was rallying late on suggests this longer trip is well worth trying. This is also a much weaker race than the one he contested last time, so he remains one to be positive about from just a 1 lb higher mark as he seeks a fourth career victory at Perth.

20:30 – Friary Rock

FRIARY ROCK proved a bit of a letdown when only fourth over hurdles at Southwell last month, but he could be worth another chance today for a couple of reasons. The booking of champion jockey Brian Hughes certainly catches the eye, and this will be both his handicap debut over fences and his first start in this sphere since August last year. A BHA mark of 101 is potentially lenient judged on the balance of his form, so don’t give up on him just yet.

21:00 – Leopolds Rock

LEOPOLDS ROCK wasn’t seen to best effect when third at Uttoxeter last time, doing well to be beaten just two and a half lengths after being caught further back than ideal. He is better judged on the form of his previous start over the same course and distance and the way he won that day suggests he can still be competitive from a BHA mark of 88. James King is a good booking in a race of this nature and everything seems set fair for another big run.
