17:00 – Nellie French

Hannah’s Return should still have more to come on AW but dropping to 5f is an unknown and others are more persuasive. Gustav Graves, Suanni, Rhubarb and Basholo (second choice) have something to recommend them but NELLIE FRENCH has been threatening on AW this winter and this could be the day that things fall into place for her.

17:30 – Handsome Chap

Liege and Super Hit are likely newcomers who should be watched in the betting but HANDSOME CHAP belied market weakness when making late headway to take second on his C&D debut and he should go on from that promising start. Royal Velvet did well to get as close as she did at Kempton and is preferred of the remainder.

18:00 – Black Smoke

Reverberation was impressive in an amateur riders’ event at Chelmsford a week ago and his 4lb penalty wouldn’t be a major issue if in the same form, but he has never attempted this far before. The unexposed Footsy is certainly one for the shortlist after his close third over C&D eight days ago, as is Hot Team who has a good record at this level and has the assistance of Oisin Murphy. Pysanka is another worth a second looks back at this level/trip, but it may be worth taking a chance with his stablemate BLACK SMOKE who remains unexposed on the AW and who would have gone closer with a clearer run over C&D last time.

18:30 – Composite

Several have possibilities in an open-looking maiden. The suggestion is COMPOSITE, who shaped nicely over C&D nine days ago and looks likely to progress. Caustic (second choice) and Daytona Beach are interesting switched to this code, while Lord Melbourne, Story Horse and Polemon have respectable form claims.

    19:00 – Sala Da Ballo (NAP)

    With his C&D effort working out nicely, SALA DA BALLO (nap) holds particularly strong claims off the same mark. Solid-looking handicap debutant Neapolitan is second choice, ahead of Ippotheos and Gunfighter in an interesting event.

    19:30 – Star Of St Louis

    Several runners tie in with each other on recent course form. Among that group, STAR OF ST LOUIS holds the most appealing claims ahead of Gypsy Whisper. Last year’s winner Caracristi has been inconsistent of late but is still worth a place on the shortlist, along with Distinction.

    20:00 – Kingwell

    Kept to an ideal scenario, topweight KINGWELL looks poised to double his career tally. Unexposed Advantage is second choice, ahead of Coconut Bay, Available Angel and Cheese The One.

    20:30 – Pyrrhic Dancer

    Being unexposed at this sort of distance, PYRRHIC DANCER may well leave his previously inconsistent ways behind and follow up last month’s course success. Brave Display, who ties in closely with the selection, is feared most ahead of Kenstone and class-dropper Weloof. Provided she settles okay in blinkers, Marisitta also has possibilities.
