2.00 Racing UK Novices' Hurdle (4) 2m3f61y
Timeform Top Rated:
132 1. CATAMARAN DU SEUIL Dr Richard Newland Sam Twiston-Davies
123 4. FRONT AT THE LAST Donald McCain Will Kennedy
98? 3. CYRANO STAR Andrew Crook Brian Hughes
Analyst's Verdict:
Catamaran du Seuil clearly wasn't himself last time (reportedly had abnormally high heart rate post race) and is worth another chance as he'd looked potentially useful when winning easily on his stable debut prior to that. Front At The Last has been a bit disappointing since finishing second on his course hurdling bow and it could be that the main threat comes from bumper winner Loch Garman Aris.


2.30 Racing UK Day Pass Just £10 Handicap Hurdle (4) 2m1f
Timeform Top Rated:
123 7. LORD BALLIM Nigel Hawke Ciaran Gethings (5)
122 3. STRAIT OF MAGELLAN Nicky Richards Ryan Day (5)
120 1. SAILORS WARN Daniel Loughnane Michael Heard (5)
Analyst's Verdict:
Age of Glory could be worth backing having shaped as if he's building up to something here a fortnight ago. He was successful over C&D the last time he was partnered by Harry Challoner and might be set for a big run. Strait of Magellan is interesting on his handicap debut, while market support for either Politeness or Kanturk Bank would need noting.


3.00 ROA/Racing Post Owners' Jackpot Handicap Chase (Qualifier) (4) 2½m
Timeform Top Rated:
129p 5. TAKE THE CASH Donald McCain Will Kennedy
128 6. KAP JAZZ Venetia Williams Charlie Deutsch (3)
127 2. CALIVIGNY N. W. Alexander Brian Hughes
Analyst's Verdict:
The returning Take The Cash catches the eye and he could go well if ready to roll after a lay-off. Kap Jazz remains with potential over fences, while The Cobbler Swayne could run a good race if coming on for his Wetherby reappearance.


3.35 Watch Racing UK On 3 Devices Handicap Hurdle (3) 2m3f61y
Timeform Top Rated:
135 3. LITTLE BRUCE Philip Kirby Adam Nicol
134 5. POLITICAL QUIZ Tom Symonds James Davies
132 2. MINELLA FIVEO Sue Smith Danny Cook
Analyst's Verdict:
Little Bruce has thrived since stepping back up to this trip and is taken to make light of an 11 lb rise and complete a hat-trick. Minella Fiveo did it nicely at Uttoxeter last month and could give Phil Kirby's charge most to do if none the worse for a fall over fences since.


4.10 Weatherbys Hamilton Handicap Chase (3) 3m110y
Timeform Top Rated:
150 2. BEG TO DIFFER Jonjo O'Neill Aidan Coleman
146 3. CULTRAM ABBEY Nicky Richards Ryan Day (5)
145§ 5. TOP WOOD David Pipe Tom Scudamore
Analyst's Verdict:
Beg To Differ was in the process of running well until unseating his rider 2 out in a competitive Sandown handicap last time and looks a big player off a 3 Ib lower mark. Blakemount goes well at this course and looks the biggest danger.


4.45 Expert Cheltenham Tips @ bookies.com Handicap Hurdle (4) 3m1f
Timeform Top Rated:
115 8. UNEX CANALETTO Keith Dalgleish Brian Hughes
114 1. PROFESSOR PLUM Rose Dobbin Lorcan Murtagh (7)
113§ 9. ONWITHTHEPARTY Kenneth Slack Harry
Analyst's Verdict:
Unex Canaletto hasn't been seen for over 2 years, but new handler Keith Dalgleish is very adept with such types, and he is of particular interest off this sort of mark under Brian Hughes. Doktor Glaz is another who has an absence to overcome, but is also potentially well treated if ready to go, whilst Onwiththeparty holds sound place claims once more.


5.15 Penrith Standard Open National Hunt Flat (5) 2m1f
Timeform Top Rated:
111p 3. FIN AND GAME Donald McCain Will Kennedy
108 7. POINT OF PRINCIPLE Tim Vaughan Alan Johns (3)
106+ 1. BLOTTOS Sue Smith Danny Cook
Analyst's Verdict:
Fin And Game made a promising start to his career when runnerup at Bangor last month and is probably the one to beat with improvement on the cards, though strong market support for the Warren Greatrex newcomer Flemenskill would put a slightly different slant on things. Warwick debut scorer Point of Principle looks best of the rest.
