Timeform on Glittering Love

Wasntexpectingthat - 17:55 Southwell

Wasntexpectingthat has been improving with each run of late, landing consecutive victories at Newcastle before narrowly failing in his hat-trick bid when collared in the final 50 yards. He quickly put that behind him, however, cruising clear to win with any amount in hand, again at Newcastle, nine days on. He still looks to be on a winning mark despite an 8 lb rise for his recent victory and is well worth siding with on his fibresand debut.

Ballard Down - 18:25 Southwell

Ballard Down returns to the Flat here after three below-par efforts over hurdles for David Pipe, generally lacking conviction with his hurdling in each outing. He is a moody sort and is typically a difficult ride, so Daniel Muscutt will certainly have his work cut out. He has recently transferred to Alexandra Dunn's yard and would rate a major player should that move spark a resurgence, but that cannot be assured, and for that reason he is worth passing up, with the hat-trick seeking Bond Angel looking the likelier winner.

Smart Stat
Glittering Love - 14:10 Newcastle

22% - Brian Hughes's strike rate at Newcastle

Glittering Love could only reach a modest level over hurdles but has taken his form to new heights since being switched to fences. He opened his account over the larger obstacles at Hexham in December 2018 before landing a hat-trick of victories at Ayr to round off a cracking season. He failed to complete here on his reappearance last month, but he remains with potential and is worth another chance to land his fifth success over fences.
