Timeform take you through the card at Exeter on Tuesday.

"He has been given a break since that latest outing on Town Moor and has no doubt been the subject of some intensive schooling in the interim..."

14:00 - Mr Caffrey was well-backed for his hurdling debut at Fontwell on Boxing Day and, although he could only muster a distant fourth behind Harley Rebel, there are reasons to believe he could yet be capable of better in this discipline. He raced far too freely on that occasion and understandably failed to get home in the gruelling conditions. Better ground could see him in a much more positive light and, with likely market-leaders Perfect Summer and Mother Meldrum not setting too high a standard, the unexposed Mr Caffrey is fancied to improve past that pair to win here.

14:30 - Rosygo was in the process of running a big race when falling at Taunton earlier this month and would have been placed at the very least with a clear round. That was by far her best effort since joining the Adrian Wintle yard and, provided she isn't feeling any ill-effects from that unfortunate tumble, Rosygo is entitled to be in the mix here. She is joined in the Placepot by Auckland de Re, who is a marginal second behind Rosygo on Timeform ratings and is given the opportunity to redeem himself after a disappointing run over this C&D in January.

15:05 - Kingussie was well-beaten behind Protek des Flos at Sandown on his most recent start, but makes his handicap debut here off what could be a potentially lenient mark. A winner of a Stratford bumper on good ground in May 2014, he returned from over a year on the sidelines with a solid effort at Towcester in December. Although disappointing on his two subsequent starts, Kingussie looks sure to relish the return to a sounder surface here and the application of first-time cheekpieces can ensure he puts his best foot forward today. He is a confident addition to the Placepot, with Quieto Sol and Lamblord feared most of the remainder.

15:40 - Henryville was a good second behind the more-experienced Irish Cavalier on just his second start over fences and, having finished alone on his chasing debut at Fontwell (only rival unseated his rider at the second fence), this smart hurdler is fancied to go come home in splendid isolation once again here. Thomas Crapper appeals as the most likely to fill the forecast spot.

16:10 - Three Faces West has found one too good on both his starts over fences to date and, having put up a fairly useful effort over a shorter trip at Huntingdon on his chasing debut, he showed the benefit of that initial experience with an improved performance behind Milansbar over this C&D last month. He is fancied to get off the mark over fences at the third-time of asking here, while Wilton Milan ran better than of late at Sandown last time and accompanies Three Faces West in the Placepot.

16:40 - Free Of Charge was a faller when likely to be second on his first start over fences at Worcester in October and he still seemed to be feeling the effects of that spill when disappointing at Warwick and Doncaster on his two subsequent starts. He has been given a break since that latest outing on Town Moor and has no doubt been the subject of some intensive schooling in the interim. A fair hurdler last year, he is 3 lb clear of today's rivals on Timeform ratings and a reproduction of his Worcester effort would give him every chance in this company. Somerset Lias and Mor Brook can give him most to do, with marginal preference for the former.

17:15 - Another competitive handicap to conclude the card and a chance is taken with Get Involved. He got off the mark under rules with an improved effort at Newbury last time and was arguably value for more than the official winning margin. The handicapper might have just underestimated him with a 9 lb rise and he is fancied to get the better of the in-form Somerset Jem here.
