12:20 Balkardy

BALKARDY completed a hat-trick of wins over fences in 2022, recording the last of those over two and a half miles at this course, and he has been in good form since returning from a lay-off back over hurdles of late.

He has finished runner-up in each of his three starts, but was given a little too much to do on his latest start over course and distance, staying on well once the winner had flown. Balkardy remains a horse to be positive about from this sort of mark and he is taken to deservedly get his head back in front. Minella Double strikes as a likely improver now stepping up to three miles for his handicap debut.

12:52 The Jukebox Man

This will probably develop into a match between last month’s course winners THE JUKEBOX MAN and Three Cliffs Bay and preference is for the former.

He looked a good prospect when winning his second start in bumpers last season and confirmed that promise with a successful debut in this sphere, leading on the bridle approaching two out and quickening clear after despite hanging to his left. There should be even more to come now and he can follow up under a penalty.

    13:22 Steel Ally

    STEEL ALLY had shown some promise in bumpers last season and he was unlucky not to make a winning start over hurdles over course and distance last month. Admittedly, he had the run of the race, but appeared to be in full control until a very awkward landing at the last handed the initiative to the winner.

    Steel Ally did rally back all the way to the line and he is fancied to gain compensation now with the prospect of even more to come, though market support for expensive Irish-point winner Fortunate Man would look significant.

    13:52 Giulietta

    GIULIETTA didn’t show much on her first four starts over hurdles, but she is related to some useful performers who wore the same silks, and duly showed improved form on her return and handicap debut over a similar trip at Warwick last month.

    She was narrowly touched off by the reopposing Annie Day on that occasion, but arguably went like the best horse at the weights and, sure to strip fitter for that outing, she is taken to reverse that form on slightly better terms. Passing Kate may well build on her Leicester breakthrough success and is another to consider.

    14:22 The King Of Ryhope

    THE KING OF RYHOPE is lightly raced for his age and he showed much improved form when making a winning debut over fences over a similar trip at Chepstow at the end of October, given a patient ride and jumping accurately and driven out to see off the determined runner-up.

    He was value for extra on the day given the manner in which he travelled through his race and, sure to progress further still in this sphere, he is a confident selection to follow up from a 7lb higher. Fine Casting did well over hurdles last season and is on a workable mark if taking to chasing at the first attempt on return.

        14:52 Grain Doudairies

        There should be more to come from the unexposed GRAIN DOUDAIRIES, who appeared to have a bit left up his sleeve when scoring at Uttoxeter last month.

        He still wasn’t foot perfect, but continues to leave the impression he has an even bigger performance in his locker, and gets the nod ahead of John Betjeman, who clearly likes it round here (form figures at Ffos Las read 1312212) and a reproduction of his latest effort at Kempton would put him firmly in the picture. Out of Focus is respected now handicapping, while Port Or Starboard also enters calculations.

        15:22 Boston Joe

        BOSTON JOE is clearly an improved model this season, making a winning return at Wincanton, and he will remain of interest having pulled clear with the winner over slightly shorter at this course three weeks ago.

        Winning pointer James Jet was progressive over hurdles so is a likely threat on chase bow, while Gazette Bourgeoise and Margaret’s Legacy are both becoming well handicapped.
