"...has a big shout if building on that here in first-time cheekpieces..."

1.55 eventmasters.co.uk Handicap Chase (Qualifier) (4) 2m7f214y

Timeform Top Rated:
133 1. POWERFUL SYMBOL Ben Pauling Nico de Boinville
130 10. TWOJAYSLAD Ian Williams Tom O'Brien
129 11. GOOD MAN VINNIE Paul Henderson James Best

Analyst's Verdict:
Powerful Symbol seemed to be getting his act together over fences for Jonjo O'Neill and is taken to complete the hat-trick on his first start for Ben Pauling. His former stablemate Washed Ashore is generally progressive having shaped better than the bare result last time and is feared most ahead of Twojayslad, who can go well fresh.


2.25 Larkshill Engineering Novices' Chase (4) 2m7f214y

Timeform Top Rated:
158 2. DINGO DOLLAR Alan King Wayne Hutchinson
152 1. MR MIX Paul Nicholls Sam Twiston-Davies
143+ 3. BADEN Nicky Henderson Nico de Boinville

Analyst's Verdict:
Dingo Dollar had Baden 15 lengths behind in second when an improved winner at Newbury last time and looks the one to beat again in receipt of 6 lb from likely main rival Mr Mix.


3.00 sunbets.co.uk Novices' Hurdle (Qualifier) (4) 2½m181y

Timeform Top Rated:
156p 1. PAISLEY PARK Emma Lavelle Nick Scholfield
152 5. SECRET INVESTOR Paul Nicholls Sam Twiston-Davies
148 4. GOWITHTHEFLOW Ben Pauling Nico de Boinville

Analyst's Verdict:
Paisley Park looks the one to beat after showing much-improved form in a Grade 2 at Warwick last month. Secret Investor is well worth another chance dropping back in drip, while Gowiththeflow also has to be considered for his resurgent yard.


3.30 Gilly Gally Paddy Parry Handicap Hurdle (Qualifier) (3) 3m84y

Timeform Top Rated:
143p 4. GUNFLEET Emma Lavelle Leighton Aspell
142 9. FINGERONTHESWITCH Neil Mulholland Noel Fehily
138+ 1. DUELING BANJOS Kim Bailey Mikey Hamill (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
Gunfleet found improvement when opening his account at Southwell last time and promises to do better still now granted a stiffer test of stamina. He can make a successful handicap bow. Clondaw Native is also on the up and rates the principal danger with Cake de L'Isle next best.


4.05 Plumbase Novices' Hurdle (4) 2m128y

Timeform Top Rated:
137p 1. AND THE NEW Johnny Farrelly Brendan Powell
136p 2. JURBY Oliver Sherwood Leighton Aspell
133p 16. TURNING GOLD Nigel Twiston-Davies Sam Twiston-Davies

Analyst's Verdict:
Turning Gold has made a bright start over hurdles, and possibly made his effort earlier than ideal when runner-up at Catterick on his second start. He's open to further improvement moving forward and could be the way to go in receipt of his handy weight-for-age allowance. Last-time-out winner's And The New and Jurby are similarly progressive and should also play their part.


4.40 eventmasters.co.uk Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle (5) 2m128y

Timeform Top Rated:
107 2. FLOW WITH EVE Olly Murphy Fergus Gregory (6)
104 4. HARTSIDE Peter Winks Ryan Day
103 1. DESHAN Tim Vaughan Richard Patrick

Analyst's Verdict:
Flow With Eve ran a cracker on her first start for Olly Murphy at Fakenham last month and has a big shout if building on that here in first-time cheekpieces. Thundering Home and Hartside are both interesting alternatives having dropped plenty in the weights.
