2.15 Watch Racing UK On The Go Novices' Hurdle (4) 2m3f61y

Timeform Top Rated:
122p 1. DARK SUNSET Donald McCain Will Kennedy
107 3. ARCTIC VODKA Sharon Watt Adam Nicol
94 9. ROSE TREE Susan Corbett James Corbett (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Bumper-winner Donna's Delight is bred to be suited by this longer trip now hurdling and might be worth siding with to get the better of Dark Sunset, who is open to improvement but does have a double penalty to shoulder. Irish point scorer Manitowoc County showed a bit if promise in a Sedgefield bumper on his recent first run for new connections and also makes the shortlist.

Timeform Top Rated:
134§ 2. WESTERN JO Sam England Jonathan England
133 5. MUMGOS DEBUT Lucinda Russell Derek Fox
131 9. TIKKANDEMICKEY Raymond Shiels Callum Bewley (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Western Jo is going through a good spell at the moment, coinciding with a recent change of yard, and may be able to defy an 18 lb hit given how much he had in hand at Hexham 12 days ago. Mumgos Debut is building up a good strike rate over fences and is next best ahead of Never Up.

Timeform Top Rated:
No ratings for this race

Analyst's Verdict:
Nuts Well was in the form of his life at the end of last season, and he could be the way to go here when considering his 2 main market rivals are likely to prefer a greater stamina test. Happy Diva and Jonniesofa both look set to have successful futures in this sphere, with the first-named slightly preferred for forecast purposes.

3.55 Bet At racinguk.com Intermediate Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier) (3) 2m1f

Timeform Top Rated:
138 6. BARRYS JACK Brian Ellison Kaine Wood (5)
133+ 5. SPECTATOR Tim Vaughan Alan Johns
132 1. COUSIN OSCAR Donald McCain Will Kennedy

Analyst's Verdict:
It's suddenly clicked for Barrys Jack, and given he escapes a penalty for last week's C&D success, he should take all the beating in his hat-trick bid. Spectator should have more to offer over hurdles given his Flat ability and the market will help assess his well-being on return from a year off.

4.25 Racing UK Handicap Chase (Qualifier) (3) 3¼m34y

Timeform Top Rated:
138+ 5. BIGIRONONHISHIP Rose Dobbin Craig Nichol
136 1. SHANROE SANTOS Lucy Wadham Brian Hughes
135 4. KAP JAZZ Venetia Williams Charlie Deutsch (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Bigirononhiship boasts a positive profile over fences, and overcame the drop in trip to make a winning return at Hexham earlier this month. With further improvement in the offing now back up in trip, he can defy a 2 lb higher mark. Landmeafortune and multiple course winner Carrigdhoun are a couple of others to consider.

Timeform Top Rated:
115 1. DURBANVILLE James Ewart Henry Brooke
114§ 2. TOWERING Conor Dore Niall Madden
113 11. LUCARNO DANCER Raymond Shiels Callum Bewley (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Towering is hardly one for maximum faith but he does have handicapping scope under a penalty for last week's Uttoxeter win given the level of form he was capable of last season. Number One London and Greenworldsolution have to prove themselves on testing ground but do arrive in top form, while Snowed In has been thereabouts on most starts this term and should also figure again.
