13:00 - ONE FOR ROSIE (8) created a very favourable impression when landing a Bangor bumper a year ago and, though his subsequent absence is a cause for concern, he's in good hanfds and is the type to do well over hurdles. Storm Control sets a pretty good standard, while Glen Forsa is open to progress granted a clear run at things.

13:30 - AL SHAHIR (9) showed plenty of promise in his first few starts over hurdles last season, filling the runner-up spot on the first three occasions before going one better with a fairly useful effort at Towcester, and there were possible excuses when pulled up on his final start at Sandown in March (looked unsuited by the very testing ground). He should find conditions more like to his liking today, well worth another try at this sort of trip on better ground (bred to stay), and Harry Skelton's mount could be worth chancing to make the perfect start to his chasing career, starting out on a fair mark for one who has the build to progress further in this sphere.

14:05 - BARRYS JACK (6) ended last season out of form, but he has gone well fresh in the past and, potentially very well handicapped on the pick of his 2017/18 efforts, the hope is that a summer's break will have done him some good. Brian Ellison's charge appears to have plenty in his favour here if it has; he recorded back-to-back wins over C&D last autumn - the latest of which came from the same mark as today - and the yard is in top form at present, highlighted by Definitly Red's Charlie Hall success yesterday.

14:40 - BAKO DE LA SAULAIE (11) is proving expensive to follow over fences, but he should be spot on after his recent return at Hexham and has good claims from 2 lb lower. Cooking Fat will continue to give a good account, with Valadom another of interest.

15:10 - PETTICOAT TAILS (6) shaped quite well in a couple of competitive handicaps to end last season and, given her profile is a positive one, she looks a mare to keep on the right side of, particularly once upped in trip. Aspen Colorado revived in a big way last time and is a contender if backing that up, with Ch'tibello expected to strip fitter with his reappearance behind him.

15:45 - CYRNAME (1) was disappointing when down the field on his final 2017/18 outing at Aintree, but he was possibly unsuited by going left-handed that day (may also have done too much too soon) and looks sure to take all the beating if bouncing back here. Indeed, there was plenty to like about his novice chasing campaign overall, with his only defeat when going this way round coming at the hands of the exciting Terrefort, and Harry Cobden's mount would appear to hold sound claims of getting back to winning ways, 3 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings, in a race that has won by the likes of Many Clouds and Waiting Patiently in recent years.

16:15 - ALRIGHT SUNSHINE (1) is a likely type on paper and gets the nod to make a winning start to his career. Stormin Norman is likely to figure on the back of a promising start at Market Rasen, while Bergamot is another interesting newcomer in a race where the betting should provide more clues. is
