"He may well have more to offer and still looks well treated at the weights."

14:00 - £200,000 purchase Hawkhurst hasn't had the most straightforward start to his career, jinking on the run-in and unseating Sam Twiston-Davies with the race in the bag at Southwell, and then being found out in better company at Cheltenham on his next start. He faces a much easier task in this race, however, and should be able to belatedly get off the mark for his top connections.

14:30 - This is fairly open, but Romeo Is Bleeding caught the eye in a big way on his first start for this yard in May, and after potentially needing the run on both of his starts this term, could well put in an improved performance today under useful 5 lb claimer Ciaran Gethings. Bonobo looked on the way back when third at Newbury last time and he looks well-treated on his old form, so is also worth including for a yard who do well at this track.

15:05 - Magical Man was let down by his jumping at these fences on his last two visits here, and ran out the visit before that, so overall looks one to take on at the head of the market. Matrow's Lady won from 21 lb lower over hurdles at this track, and could be worth backing for the in-form Neil Mulholland yard, while Beaujolais Bob, who has run well on his last two starts, is also worth including for Placepot purposes.

15:40 - Batavir ran right up to his best in first-time blinkers at Chepstow last time, and with this drop in trip expected to suit him better, he looks set to run well from top weight. The bet of the race, however, could be Never Says Never, who has not had many starts for Anthony Honeyball and was in the process of running well at Exeter when departing late on. He may well have more to offer and still looks well treated at the weights.

16:15 - Apache Outlaw is much less exposed than the majority of this field and looks a solid option to make it two from two at this level after winning at Taunton last time. Filatore would be the biggest threat at the weights, but is not one to be trusted.

16:45 - Horatio Hornblower was much better than the result when fifth over C&D in February (tired in the closing stages on heavy ground on the back of an absence) and he looks set to go go well from 2 lb lower than when second at Warwick on his previous start. He hasn't had many starts, and could easily have more to offer for the in-form Nick Williams yard.

17:15 - Western Wave bumped into one on debut at Towcester when second, and with more to come on just his second start, he could go well, though both Savoy Court and Red Six, as well as the expensive Eamon An Cnoic, are not without chances.

Recommended bets:

Back Matrow's Lady in the 15:05
Back Never Says Never in the 15:40
Back Horatio Hornblower in the 16:45

Placepot permutation:
14:00 - 4
