Timeform take you through the card at Warwick on Monday.


13:30 - Dual bumper winner Nicely Indeed is respected, especially with his current yard in good form, however BEDROCK (13) has been highly tried over hurdles to date but was clearly all the better for his debut when third in the Grade 1 Anniversary Hurdle at Aintree, his jumping looking much more assured. He is worth siding with in calmer waters.

14:05 - OSCAR ROSE (6) reached a high level in bumpers, including runner-up in an Aintree Grade 2 last month, and is expected to take a bit of stopping on her hurdling debut. She is closely related to Lie Forrit who stays well but was quick enough to finish second on his hurdling debut; Oscar Rose can go one better. Seelateralligator arrives on the back of a win in a Bangor bumper and is likely to figure prominently on her hurdling bow, while Monar Rose also showed enough in bumpers to suggest she has a future over hurdles.

14:40 - TIGER TREK (1) goes best on a sound surface and has likely been saved for a spring campaign, so could be the way to go on return in a first-time hood. He produced a career-best when second at Worcester last July and a repeat of that performance could be good enough here. Chase-debutants Cobra de Mai and See The World may emerge as the main dangers ahead of the former David Pipe-trained Mango Cap who wasn't at his best on his debut for Matt Shepherd last month.

15:15 - Plenty to consider but HONKYTONKTENNESSEE (1) likely continues to be a blot on the handicap and can get the hat-trick up for the Skeltons. He's won both of his starts since joining the yard/being fitted with a hood and a 7 lb penalty may not be enough to stop his progress. Sutter's Mill and Anythingmayhappen both won last time out also and are respected, while Psychocandy is interesting on her handicap debut.

15:50 - BEYEH (3) made a sound return from a lay-off when chasing home the useful Gino Trail at Ludlow and might be worth siding with to build on that from. The Mick Appleby-trained mare should appreciate this better round and she looks to be on an attractive mark based on what she was capable of over hurdles earlier in her career. Aerlite Supreme should find this a bit easier than some of the races he's contested lately, while Lemon's Gent arrives on the back of two good placed efforts.

16:25 - ASHOKA (1) arrives at the top of his game, winning impressively at Exeter 13 days ago, so is taken to defy an 11 lb rise and complete the hat-trick for his in-form yard. DESTINY'S GOLD (8) is just the type Dr Richard Newland excels with so he also goes on the list on his debut for the yard, ahead of handicap-debutant Jam Session.

17:00 - In a race bigger on quantity than quality, SCALES gets the nod. Brereton and Blackfire will both be thereabouts if building on their latest efforts, while Work possibly found conditions too testing at Plumpton and may be more of a force on better ground here.
