12:40 Junkanoo

Goodwin (second choice) ran well in defeat over 2m4f here on last month’s hurdling debut, while point/bumper winner Walks Like The Man is likely to make his mark over hurdles sooner rather than later.

However, fairly useful Flat-racer JUNKANOO seemed to take very well to hurdling when second at Ascot last month and looks the one to beat.

13:10 Oxygen

An awkward but very interesting race as a few of these are likely to prove their mettle off their current marks this winter.

Hardy Fella, Scarface and Red Windsor fall into this bracket but today’s race can lie between Pepe Le Moko, who did so well on his chase debut at Warwick, and OXYGEN, another who won with plenty in hand at Lingfield.

    13:40 Menaggio

    This looks weaker than the Kempton novice in which MENAGGIO finished fifth on last month’s seasonal/hurdle debut and he is taken to open his account.

    Fontwell third Bentley’s Return is earmarked as the main danger but Fierce Warrior can leave his Market Rasen form behind if/when his jumping improves, while In D’Or showed more than enough on his British debut in January to suggest he can also feature.

    14:10 Special Acceptance

    I See You Well (second choice) should give it a good shot in attempting to win this race for the third time and Guguss Collonges comes here in good form but preference is for stout stayer SPECIAL ACCEPTANCE who ran so well on his return at Huntingdon and can do better with this tougher test of stamina.

    14:40 Atreides (NAP)

    This can go to ATREIDES (NAP), who posted two good efforts last month and remains lightly raced. Handicap debutant Commanding View shaped with promise in a Warwick novice four weeks ago and is feared most, while Tellmesomethingood has plenty of scope to progress from his Lingfield third.

        15:10 Methusalar

        Peter Bowen’s METHUSALAR has slipped to a very good mark and might well have taken advantage had he not unseated Sean Bowen at the penultimate fence at Sedgefield last month.

        He gets the vote ahead of Boys Of Wexford, who ran better than his eventual 41l defeat might suggest at Ffos Las last month and is also well handicapped. Chasing debutant Sir Rock is next on the list.

        15:40 The Secret Pearl

        She was left behind by the impressive winner in the closing stages but THE SECRET PEARL still made a very promising rules debut in a big field at Warwick last month, and she appeals most here.

        Lady D’Arbanville has been absent since her Bangor second in May 2022 but may provide the main threat. Irish point winner Realta Liath also looks interesting.
