"...he should be able to make a winning return to hurdles..."

Timeform on Ordo Ab Chao

14:10 - This looks a golden opportunity for LEAPWAY (1) to complete a hat-trick. He was impressive when winning by seven lengths at Cartmel last time and, as his odds suggest, he will take all the beating once more. Romanor looks next best on form and could be the one for the forecast.

14:45 - PRIMOGENITURE (4) shaped better than the result over further at Aintree last month and can show he's on a good mark with the drop back in trip likely to help. Railroad Junkie appeals as the sort to progress again now handicapping, while Take The High Road is also of interest on his first outing for David Pipe, particularly if the market speaks in his favour.

15:20 - ORDO AB CHAO (2) isn't long with Olly Murphy and, on form at least, should take a fair bit of beating dropped to selling company. He didn't shape badly on chase debut at Towcester last time, and could rate higher in that sphere yet, but he should be able to make a winning return to hurdles with Richard Johnson aboard for the first time.

15:55 - Dr Richard Newland continues in great form, and VOSNE ROMANEE (1) is taken to provide him with another winner. He produced a career best to win over this C&D last time, justifying his strength in the market, and a subsequent 5 lb rise could well underestimate him. The prolific Stynes is feared most.

16:30 - SECOND TIME AROUND (4) is comfortably the least exposed one in this field and, having battled on strongly to pull clear with another progressive sort at Hexham last time, he can step up again to make amends here. Five-timer-seeking Mr Mafia will give the selection plenty to think about and the Seamus Mullins-trained pair Lillian and Kentford Heiress warrant consideration, too.

17:05 - A dual point winner, CRAIGMOR (1) showed better signs over hurdles when twice placed in handicaps last month, and he is fancied to relish the switch to larger obstacles now partnered by Richard Johnson. Bleu Et Or and Djarkevi are both of interest however, particularly if market vibes are encouraging surrounding either of them.

17:40 - MAYLLAN (6) made a bright start to her career when second at Uttoxeter last month and could be hard to beat if improving on that as expected. Influential Lady can chase her home again, with Getaway Honey another big player after her promising Worcester debut.
