Timeform Top Rated:
142p 4. SECRET LEGACY Ian Williams Tom O'Brien
134p 1. BALLINSLEA BRIDGE Olly Murphy Fergus Gregory (7)
129p 5. TRUCKERS LODGE Tom George Mr N. George (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Secret Legacy was running a mighty race when coming to grief late on at Leicester last month and providing he's none the worse for that looks up to taking this. Ballinslea Bridge won in good style at Market Rasen and should go well again under a penalty. It's still early days for Truckers Lodge and he could fare better here.

2.30 188Bet Daily Racing Specials Handicap Hurdle (4) 2m1f

Timeform Top Rated:
125 9. DAKOTA GREY Micky Hammond Henry Brooke
124 1. COPPER WEST Tom George Mr N. George (7)
124§ 5. TAKE A BREAK Nigel Hawke Sean Bowen

Analyst's Verdict:
Dakota Grey has saved his best efforts for this C&D and might be worth chancing from his reduced mark in the hope that first-time cheekpieces put an edge on him. Copper West travelled strongly on his Doncaster handicap debut and is a likely big danger down in trip, while Cesar Collonges is another who didn't appear to get home over further last time and returns to the scene of his maiden success.

129 1. UNTIL WINNING Tom George Mr N. George (7)
127 7. OAK VINTAGE Ann Hamilton Ross Chapman (5)
126 2. TOP CAT HENRY N. W. Alexander Mr Kit Alexander (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Until Winning won well at Market Rasen last month, showing that plenty of ability is still intact after almost 2 years off, and he remains on a handy mark on his very best form. Oak Vintage is having a good season and rates the biggest threat.

Timeform Top Rated:
145p 5. BLOTTOS Sue Smith Danny Cook
144 1. TOMNGERRY Brian Ellison Brian Hughes
141§ 2. SAKHEE'S CITY Philip Kirby Adam Nicol

Analyst's Verdict:
A small field but it's an interesting race. Dual Sedgefield scorer Blottos should be suited by this stiffer course and can improve again to make a winning handicap debut. Last-time-out Doncaster winner Slanelough is likely to give another good account, while things haven't gone to plan for Tomngerry over fences the last twice but he has a progressive profile in this sphere.

4.05 188Bet Casino Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier) (4) 3m1f

Timeform Top Rated:
116 7. LETEMGO Andrew Hamilton Ross Chapman (5)
115 11. THE MODEL COUNTY Alan Phillips Sean Bowen
114 1. POKORA DU LYS Rebecca Menzies Tony Kelly

Analyst's Verdict:
The hat-trick seeking Letemgo makes plenty of appeal given he escapes a penalty for his recent Ayr victory. The 10-y-o is clearly at home on an easy surface and should prove a tough nut to crack. The Model County displayed a good attitude when getting her head in front at Southwell but her profile has a patchy look to it, therefore Pinch of Ginger and Christmas Twenty rate the main dangers.

4.40 188bet.co.uk Handicap Chase (3) 3m110y

Timeform Top Rated:
138p 5. BAKO DE LA SAULAIE Rose Dobbin Craig Nichol
137 4. NEWTOWN LAD Lucinda Russell Derek Fox
136 1. CHIDSWELL Nicky Richards Ryan Day (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Bako de La Saulaie is clearly going to be a better chaser than hurdler having shaped as if ahead of his mark when runner-up at Doncaster last month and is sure to win races in this sphere. Newtown Lad got back on track when second at Newcastle and is feared most.

116p 1. WINDSOR AVENUE Brian Ellison Brian Hughes
105 3. BIG BAD DREAM Donald Whillans Callum Whillans (3)
86 4. GENERAL CUSTARD Olly Murphy Fergus Gregory (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Windsor Avenue can emulate his half-brother Ravenhill Road and make it 2-2 in bumpers for the same connections. General Custard looks the one for the forecast.
