2.10: GOODBYE DANCER was an easy winner at Market Rasen and Stratford and whilst he is burden by a double penalty he looks the one to be on here. The David Pipe newcomer Sinndar’s Man is a half-brother to a winning jumper the market will indicate his chance, Nellie The Elegant won on the Flat AW but did nothing in two Flat races after will be better judged after this race. Magic Magnolia & Love Tangle did little on their hurdling debuts to suggest they have chances here.
2.45: Vesperal Dream will be happier back over hurdles and should pose a threat here, Clerk’s Choice finished a close second in a Listed race at Aintree last year and if he reproduces that form will go close.

PLACEPOT: 4 & 1

PLACEPOT: 3 & 2
3.55: CASH FOR STEEL has won over the course and distance and impressed when winning at Uttoxeter last time comes here in great form.

4.30: Back-to-back winner RUSTY NAIL looks more than capable of making it a hat-trick here both previous victories have come here over 2m 5f and the extra distance should not be a problem, Lodigian is a threat but is held on last times form. Hinton Indiana is a danger he won over this trip at Cartmel in May and has gone close a couple of times since.

A P McCoy partners Kiama Bay the market will indicate his chances.
5.35: Alan King’s Hollow Penny won at the third time of asking over 2m2f at Fontwell last time and will go very close here.
