12:55 - Not many of these look capable of winning a novice and this may boil down to a match between RIVER FROST (9) and Burrows Park. The latter was better on the Flat when trained in France, but does have an absence to overcome, and narrow preference is for Alan King;s runner who ran well enough for third at Huntingdon earlier this month on hurdling debut.

13:25 - TOP NOTCH (1) was very smart over hurdles and got off the mark at the second time of asking over fences at Warwick last time. He won easily that day and should have more to offer in this sphere. He is narrowly preferred to Romain de Senam, who was second in the Fred Winter as a hurdler last season and will provide some interesting opposition for the favourite.

14:00 - This represents a much easier task for VERY EXTRAVAGANT (1) compared to the listed handicap she was contesting at Cheltenham last time and she could get back to winning ways. There is a chance that THEATRE GOER (3) could get an easy time of things out in front if adopting prominent tactics (which she has done before), and she is also worth including.

14:30 - The feeling remains that STEPOVER (9) is still on a fair mark after she bumped in to one at Towcester back in May. She shaped as though she was in need of the run at Southwell earlier this month, and a well run race at this sort of trip could be just what she needs.

15:00 - YUKON DELTA (2) has been in good form since joining Gary Moore and should run well again, though he is up in the weights in this sphere following two wins over hurdles. Water Wagtail has been running well recently but is not the most reliable and the second option to including could be FLUGZEUG (6), who looks on a good mark on the balance of his form.

15:30 - ALASKAN POET (1) sets the standard on his second at Fontwell last time and should have come on for that experience, so gets the vote for Placepot purposes ahead of interesting newcomers If The Cap Fits and Allez Jacques.


Win back STEPOVER in the 14:30 at Plumpton
