Sedgefield - 14:35: Back City Vaults

A good week personally to look forward to with the return of my two favourite jumping punting tracks as Sedgefield race today and Hexham to come later in the week.

Sedgefield's ground tends to dry out quickly and the surface given as officially as good could be under a bit of threat with rain forecast, but it shouldn't be too much of a hindrance for the opening selection City Vaults, who has a good opportunity to break his maiden tag at the third time of asking over hurdles.

The 4yo had a couple of runs at Cartmel for trainer James Moffatt and fared quite well on his debut in the spring over 2m1f - although his jumping was far from totally accurate, but he'll have more time today with less pressure on his technique as he goes up to 2m4f.

He met a strong John McConnell stayer next time in August at the same track, but deserved a bit of credit for making a race of it in soft ground against a horse who was 10lb his superior.

City Vaults was rated in the 60s on the level with previous trainer David O'Meara and looked good when winning over 1m6f at Redcar last season - especially with the way he travelled in that race. I can see Sedgefield suiting him and should trade at a shorter price in-running given he can go quite smoothly.

There's a big springer in the betting for this with David Thompson's Bushmill Boy a mover from 30/131.00 into 12/113.00 on the Sportsbook.

Back City Vaults @ 7/24.50

Sedgefield - 15:45: Back Fearless

Trainer Danny Brooke has done well to get a win out of Fearless since the horse joined him Olly Murphy, and he has two seconds to his name too from four starts for the yard.

His latest run at Uttoxeter was an excellent effort - finishing second behind the progressive Fringill Dike. The winner that day has bolted up again from a mark of 125 and has the makings of a useful novice over fences for Jedd O'Keeffe, so it might be worth upgrading the run of Fearless.

The Uttoxeter effort was also his first outing for over 400 days, so he could improve or he could bounce - depending on if you subscribe to the theory of the latter.

Last summer he won at Aintree in 0-125 grade and handled the good ground well, and on that run, he has the best bit of form.

Usually held up in his races, expect him to come late here and played from off the pace and is fully deserving of his 6lb rise from Uttoxeter last time.

It's a minor worry his trainer Brooke hasn't had a winner from 15 runners, but I don't like the second favourite Blueberry Wine here, and he was slammed at Newton Abbot, and Aliomaana as a rival comes from a yard struggling for a bit of form.

Back Fearless @ 9/43.25
