12:20 Magic Seven

MAGIC SEVEN returned from 11 months off with a clear-cut success over this course and distance last time, hitting the front two out and quickly drawing clear from there to land the spoils by nine and a half lengths in comfortable fashion.

That was a promising start to his hurdling career and there should be more to come from him as he gains experience, so he earns to vote to follow up under a penalty.

12:50 Man Of The Sean

MAN OF THE SEA ran one of his better races over hurdles when last seen filling the runner-up spot at Market Rasen in September, keeping on well to be beaten only two lengths. He lines up from the same mark today and a repeat of that effort will give him every chance of resuming winning ways in a race where most of his rivals have questions to answer.

 

13:25 Cobbs Corner

COBBS CORNER shaped as if needing the run after eight months off when finishing fourth over this course and distance last time, crying enough by the second last as he weakened to pass the post nine lengths behind the winner.

Still, he showed an aptitude for jumping fences and it will be no surprise if he takes a big step forward on his second attempt from what remains a generous mark judged on the pick of his form over hurdles.

14:00 Casa No Mento

CASA NO MENTO was fairly useful in bumpers last season, notably making a winning debut at this course, and she created a good impression when returning with an impressive victory on her hurdling debut at Market Rasen in September, quickly asserting on the run-in to land the spoils by six lengths.

That form is comfortably the best on offer in this line-up and it looks an excellent opportunity for her to defy a penalty on her way to bigger and better things.

14:35 Redwood Queen

REDWOOD QUEEN has taken her form up a notch on her last two starts, first landing a gamble at Sligo in August and then running at least as well in defeat from a 7lb higher mark when hitting the frame in a big-field handicap at Punchestown in October.

It’s still early days with Charles Byrnes after just four starts and she probably hasn’t reached her ceiling yet, so another bold bid seems assured for a yard which doesn’t often miss with its British runners.

 

15:10 Hipop Des Ongrais

HIPOP DES ONGRAIS was well on top at the finish when making a successful return to action at Fontwell in October, leading before the last and always doing enough from there to win by two and three-quarter lengths.

That form is working out well (runner-up has won both his subsequent starts) and he remains one to be interested in from a 7lb higher mark having strengthened up over the summer, very much the type to go on improving.

15:45 Jackpot Des Bordes

JACKPOT DES BORDES could be worth siding with in a bumper where those with experience don’t set the bar too high.

Bought for €120,000 as a three-year-old, he has plenty going for him on pedigree (out of a half-sister to the useful hurdler/chaser Utopie des Bordes) and couldn’t be in better hands with Paul Nicholls, who is seeking a third straight win in this race.
