1.10 Superbowl Betting At 188Bet/EBF 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle (Qualifier) (4) 2m11y

Timeform Top Rated:
136 1. DON'T ASK Warren Greatrex Richard Johnson
129 2. MARLEY FIRTH Dan Skelton Harry Skelton
126p 6. DESQUE DE L'ISLE Venetia Williams Charlie Deutsch (3)

Analyst's Verdict:
Bangor-winner Don't Ask would have gone close to following up at Taunton but for a couple of late jumping lapses and is taken to resume winning ways under Richard Johnson. French-recruit Desque de L'Isle is a potentially interesting opponent on first run for new handler Venetia Williams, while Marley Firth can't have been right last time and is a player on his first 2 runs over timber.


1.40 Best Odds Guaranteed At 188Bet Novices' Chase (4) 2m7f131y

Timeform Top Rated:
156 1. ROLLING DYLAN Philip Hobbs Micheal Nolan
149 4. SOURIYAN Peter Bowen Sean Bowen
141+ 7. SURTEE DU BERLAIS Oliver Sherwood Leighton Aspell

Analyst's Verdict:
Rolling Dylan left his disappointing Haydock effort well behind when just foiled at Taunton last month and is taken to return to winning ways here. Souriyan was a good second in a C&D handicap last time and will be dangerous if in the same form again, whilst chase debutants Step Back and Thomas Patrick are both worth a second look in the market.


2.15 188Bet Daily Racing Specials Novices' Hurdle (4) 2m7f131y

Timeform Top Rated:
140 2. ROCK MY STYLE Warren Greatrex Richard Johnson
139+ 4. BILL AND BARN Paul Nicholls Stan Sheppard (3)
133 3. THIS IS IT Nick Mitchell Daryl Jacob

Analyst's Verdict:
Bill And Barn goes unpenalised for his C&D victory in a conditional jockey's event in December and, having improved further when second over fences at Wincanton last month, he can regain the winning thread. Rock My Style and Pauls Hill are expected to give Paul Nicholls' charge most to think about.


2.45 188Bet Cheltenham Festival Preview 2nd March Handicap Chase (4) 2m3f98y

Timeform Top Rated:
123 3. BREDON HILL LAD Susan Gardner Lucy Gardner (3)
121p 5. MARKET ROAD Evan Williams Miss Isabel Williams (7)
121 7. CAPRICE D'ANGLAIS Charlie Longsdon Jonathan Burke

Analyst's Verdict:
Market Road won with a bit to spare when last seen over fences at Ffos Las in May, and has scored twice over hurdles since. He remains open to improvement in this discipline and is fancied to add another success to his tally. The hat-trick seeking Bredon Hill Lad is the obvious danger, whilst Caprice d'Anglais and One Style are also of interest.


3.20 Read Noel Fehily At 188Bet Handicap Hurdle (4) 2m3f100y

Timeform Top Rated:
131 7. MARTABOT David Pipe Tom Scudamore
130 4. CHAMPAGNE CHASER Tim Vaughan Alan Johns
128 9. WITH PLEASURE John Flint Richard Patrick (5)

Analyst's Verdict:
With Pleasure should probably have finished closer at Ascot last time given the race was run to suit, but the form of that contest is working out and he was an excellent second over this C&D prior to that. He could be the answer in an open affair, with Martabot a potential danger fitted with headgear, while Vango de Vaige could easily up his game now handicapping.


3.55 Six Nations Rugby At 188Bet Handicap Chase (4) 2m7f131y

Timeform Top Rated:
132 4. ALL KINGS Bob Buckler Sean Houlihan (7)
131 6. PADDY THE OSCAR Grace Harris Conor Ring (3)
131 8. HANSUPFORDETROIT Bernard Llewellyn Richard Johnson

Analyst's Verdict:
Allchilledout ran his best race of the current campaign when third at Fontwell last month and, now operating from his last winning mark which incidentally came over C&D, he gets the narrow vote to regain the winning thread. Catching On, All Kings and Sutter's Mill are just 3 potential dangers however, in a wide-open affair.


4.25 188Bet Casino Standard Open National Hunt Flat (5) 2m11y

Timeform Top Rated:
115 1. KATESON Tom Lacey Mr Tommie M. O'Brien (5)
114 4. REMASTERED David Pipe Tom Scudamore
99 3. POTTERS TALE Peter Bowen Sean Bowen

Analyst's Verdict:
A small field but it's quite an interesting finale. Remastered gets the nod to make a winning start for David Pipe but C&D winner Kateson and Peter Bowen's Potters Tale should ensure he doesn't have things all his own way, while newcomers Kauto The King and Flemenstrix would also come into it if the betting speaks in their favour.
