"...and though this is a deeper race, he has an unchanged mark to exploit..."

12:50 - BOAGRIUS (1) produced his best effort to date when finishing second at Market Rasen on Boxing Day, and he may do better again given his background in points. The step back up in trip will suit him here and, he is well up to winning races from this mark. Cousin Oscar could be all the better for his recent wind operation, while The Last But One is one to note on his chasing bow.

13:25 - It's very hard to get away from the claims of WE HAVE A DREAM (1), who sets a high standard on the back of Graded wins on his last two starts and he should be able to make it four in a row since joining this yard. Act of Valour can't have been right when well behind the selection at Doncaster and is taken to get his career back on track and fill the forecast spot.

14:00 - A good race but it's still hard to see past CLAIMANTAKINFORGAN (3), who figures prominently in the betting for the Supreme at Cheltenham on the back of two very impressive wins before Christmas. Beyond The Clouds is another defending an unbeaten record over timber and could be the one to follow Nicky Henderson's charge home.

14:35 - MR WHIPPED (1) had more in hand than the margin suggests in a Grade 2 at Warwick three weeks ago and can extend his unbeaten record. He showed inexperience, but overcame the rise in class in some style, leaving the impression he has plenty more to offer. Red River remains with potential up in trip, while Present Man is an interesting contender given his smart form over fences.

15:10 - CRESSWELL LEGEND (5) has answered every question asked of him over hurdles so far and could well make it four wins from four starts in this sphere if his stamina lasts out over this new trip. Stamp Your Feet might not be far behind him again, while the hat-trick seeking Jump For Dough can have a good case made for him, also.

15:45 - ATTENTION PLEASE (9) is in top form at present, likely to have gone close to completing the hat-trick at this venue recently but for a fall two out, and though this is a deeper race, he has an unchanged mark to exploit. Royale Django is a fascinating contender from his reduced chase mark having undergone a breathing operation, while Carlton Ryan should be on the premises.

16:20 - THEATRE LEGEND (2) and Chanceanotherfive both set quite a high standard as they bid for the hat-trick, even under their double penalties, the former shading the vote given the manner of his 21-length success at Sedgefield last time. Seddon makes most appeal of the newcomers and has been strong in the market this morning.
