14.15 – Tie The Knot Wedding Catering Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle

HILL OF TARA is on a roll at present, winning four of his last five starts, and despite being hit with a huge hike in the handicap, he remains the one to beat. HASTY PARISIAN has made the frame in all three starts at this course and should again be thereabouts.

Tips: HILL OF TARA, HASTY PARISIAN

 

14.45 – Strong Flavours Catering Handicap Chase

PRINCE QUALI improved significantly from his stable debut to only be beaten half-a-length at Wincanton and should be hard to stop with plenty more to come in this grade. GIVE ME A MOMENT is 3Ib below his last winning mark and is also down in grade. He cannot be dismissed.

Tips: PRINCE QUALI, GIVE ME A MOMENT

 

15.15 – Structured Communications Maiden Hurdle

HMS PRESIDENT is an exciting addition to this division. He achieved a high level of form on the flat and should be hard to beat. His main danger is KOENIGSSTERN, who has displayed promise in all three starts over hurdles and is open to further improvement.

Tips: HMS PRESIDENT, KOENIGSSTERN

 

15.45 – Big Sprat Novices’ Handicap Chase

SCARFACE looked better equipped when fitted with headgear last time out, in which he scored quite comfortably over C&D, beating Rocky My Way, who has subsequently run well to finish second at Newbury. He should make a bold bid, while the consistent BALLYBEEN is the other to consider.

Tips: SCARFACE, BALLYBEEN

 

16.15 – Mayo Wynne Baxter Handicap Hurdle

HOMME D’UN SOIR ran well at a big price towards the end of last year when third at Doncaster and only found one too good last time out. He can be considered, as can COLOURS ON CANVAS, who chased home a useful prospect when second here last time out.

Tips: HOMME D’UN SOIR, COLOURS ON CANVAS

 

16.45 – Half Moon Plumpton Mares’ Handicap Hurdle

GEARING’S POINT was in good form on the flat last year, winning four times, and has shaped well in both hurdle starts. She could go well on her handicap debut, while EVENTFUL has slipped to his last winning mark, and the booking of a top jockey is significant.

Tips: GEARING’S POINT, EVENTFUL
