1.40 Enhanced Place Odds At 188Bet (All Weather) Mares' Standard Open National Hunt Flat (5) 2m56y

Timeform Top Rated:
107+ 2. STRIKE THE POSE James Ewart Rachael McDonald (7)
102 8. IT'S ALL ABOUT ME Micky Hammond Joe Colliver
100 1. ORIENTAL CROSS Tim Vaughan Alan Johns

Analyst's Verdict:
Bournville looks a likely type and is taken to make a winning start in what is probably an ordinary bumper. Strike The Pose sets the standard if coming back to debut form, while Donnas Dream is another newcomer to note.


2.15 Follow 188Bet On Twitter Mares' Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier) (4) 2m98y

Timeform Top Rated:
125 2. BEYONDTEMPTATION Jonathan Haynes Sean Quinlan
124 1. UNDEFINED BEAUTY Olly Murphy Fergus Gregory (7)
123 3. MORNING WITH IVAN Susan Corbett James Corbett (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Undefined Beauty has shown she can be competitive off this mark, and could well be the way to go with promising 7 lb claimer Fergus Gregory back in the saddle. Morning With Ivan and Shee's Lucky are next on the list in that order.


2.45 Read Noel Fehily At 188Bet Handicap Chase (3) 2m7f91y

Timeform Top Rated:
156 3. THE YOUNG MASTER Neil Mulholland Noel Fehily
152x 1. BAYWING Nicky Richards Ryan Day (3)
149? 2. FIRTH OF THE CLYDE Ruth Jefferson Brian Hughes

Analyst's Verdict:
The Young Master is becoming dangerously handicapped and gets the vote having shown a bit more at Kempton last time. Baywing got back on track when not beaten far in a strong handicap at Wetherby so is feared most.


3.20 In Play Betting At 188Bet Handicap Hurdle (5) 2m98y

Timeform Top Rated:
107 2. SKY FULL OF STARS James Ewart Henry Brooke
102§ 5. NOTEBOOK Simon Waugh Miss A. Waugh (7)
101 6. CADORE Lucy Normile Grant Cockburn (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Hard to enthuse over many of these, but Sky Full of Stars has the form in the book to suggest he's capable of winning this. Notebook is hardly trustworthy but retains enough ability to be competitive at this level, while Bulls Head needs monitoring in the market on his return for a new yard.


3.50 Play Casino At 188Bet Handicap Chase (5) 2½m19y

Timeform Top Rated:
110 1. TITIAN BOY N. W. Alexander Brian Hughes
109 9. WHAT A DREAM Alison Hamilton Jamie Hamilton (3)
106 3. ORIONINVERNESS Lucinda Russell Stephen Mulqueen (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Hard to be completely confident about many but Orioninverness was going well when falling on his return at Ayr and could be the one to be with if he's none the worse for that spill. Brown Trix probably has a race in him, while Titian Boy is one of several who lurk on a good handicap mark.


4.20 Play Slots At 188Bet Casino Novices' Hurdle (4) 2m98y

Timeform Top Rated:
129 1. ABSOLUTELY DYLAN Sue Smith Danny Cook
115p 5. EMPIRE DE MAULDE James Ewart Conor O'Farrell
85 3. LE GAVROCHE Rose Dobbin Craig Nichol

Analyst's Verdict:
Absolutely Dylan will stay a fair bit further in time but is hard to get away from in what looks an uncompetitive novice hurdle. Empire de Maulde is the obvious danger after a reasonably encouraging start on these shores at Wetherby a fortnight ago.
